ABOUT BINARYTIERS ----------------- BinaryTiers is an open source, high-performance C++ web application framework that implements the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture pattern. BinaryTiers is designed to be fast, robust, secure and easy to scale. BinaryTiers is designed keeping processing time in mind, saving energy and computing resources. BinaryTiers web applications range from personal blogs to large social networking websites. BinaryTiers framework is organized in a set of highly optimized C++ functions that compile your web application in a single and portable executable, allowing the creation of high performance cross-platform machine compiled web applications. ARCHITECTURE PATTERN -------------------- BinaryTiers implements the architecture pattern Model-View-Controller (MVC) Models encapsulate the business logic and the data objects of your web application, in BinaryTiers models are normally backed by a data store. Models can be easily extended and they permit and independent development, testing and maintenance. The View is composed of "themes" that are responsible for providing appropriate representations of your application interface. Themes are CPP files with embedded HTML. The Controllers are responsible for handling incoming HTTP requests and send the response. This response can be processed by the View, or sent directly to the output in order to generate XML, JSON, etc. Controllers can provide a direct response or a pre-processed response, commonly used in form validations. GETTING STARTED --------------- 1. Make sure that you have the following programs and libraries installed: g++ mysql client redis expat pcre 2. Make sure hiredis is installed properly cd ~/redis-2.4.5/deps/hiredis make install INSTALL_INC=/usr/include INSTALL_LIB=/usr/lib 3. If you are using MySQL, create an empty database, if you are using REDIS you can skip this step: You must create an empty database for BinaryTiers, make sure the database user has the rights to use the BinaryTiers database. mysqladmin -u MY_DATA_BASE_USER -p create MY_DATA_BASE_NAME 4. Get the source code and build the core: wget http://www.binarytiers.org/files/binarytiers-2.4.2.tar.gz tar -xvzf binarytiers-2.4.2.tar.gz cd binarytiers/lib make 5. Configure and Build BinaryTiers for the first time: cd ../src vi settings.h make 6. Configure the Web Server: If you are using Apache, make sure to specify the path of BinaryTiers in the file: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName mysite.domain ServerAlias mysite.domain DocumentRoot "/MY_BINARYTIERS_PATH/" DirectoryIndex bt.bin <Directory /> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/MY_BINARYTIERS_PATH/" </VirtualHost> 7. Configure your web application: Point your browser to http://mysite.domain and follow the steps DOCUMENTATION ------------- You can find detailed documentation at: http://www.binarytiers.org/ LICENSE ------- BinaryTiers is available open-source under the terms of the Apache 2 License.
