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/ 4.
