Hello world example

To try this example, you need GNU make and git in your PATH.

To build the example, run the following command:

$ make

To start the release in the foreground:

$ ./_rel/ssl_hello_world_example/bin/ssl_hello_world_example console

Then point your browser at https://localhost:8443. You will need to temporarily trust the root certificate authority, which can also be found in priv/ssl/cowboy-ca.crt.

Example output

$ curl --cacert priv/ssl/cowboy-ca.crt -i https://localhost:8443
