Webylene

1. Introduction
  Webylene is a MVC-ish web framework that tries to have a very small 
  learning curve to get started, doesn't tie your arms behind your back,
  
2. Directory Layout
  webylene root/
    bootstrap.lua - the bootstrap. don't mess with it.
    /objects      - objects dir. place objects you'll use here
      /core       - core objects. don't mess with them.
      /plugins    - plugin objects. place plugins here.
    /config       - config dir. place your config files here.
      /delayed    - place configs that shouldn't be autoloaded here
    /scripts      - page-specific scripts
                    put your scripts here. the router will map 
                    urls to scripts. see the router config.
    /templates    - templates (a.k.a. views) should be here
                    templates produce the actual output to browser.
    /web          - server root. only static content goes here
	  

3. Getting Started
  
  For easy development, you can start this Webylene project as a standalone HTTP
  server. ./bootstrap.lua --server=localhost:8080
  For details, see ./bootstrap.lua --help
	
  edit config/app.yaml - set database stuff and env stuff
  write scripts that handle requests to specific urls in scripts/
  route requests from desired urls to scripts in config/routes.yaml
  make templates in templates/
