wblog and RSS

I have added RSS support to wblog (part of the yfront package).

A new erlmerge package, with example code, has been uploaded to trapexit.org.

Yfront - A Yaws toolbox

I have started a new project in Jungerl named Yfront.

The intention is to create a toolbox of building blocks for building
web applications. Especially the combination of Yaws and Mnesia
is an intresting area. Initially, Yfront contains three modules:
wblog, wraplog and ymnesia.

wblog is a Yaws/Mnesia plugin that implements a blog.
wraplog is a simple but effective wraplog
ymnesia is a Yaws appmod for inspecting Mnesia tables.

The documentation can be found here.

To install Yfront, use erlmerge as in: erlmerge -i yfront

EUC-2005

So, the 11:th EUC has been executed.

As usual it was great fun to meet old and new Erlang friends. The things I liked the most was the proposed extension of the binary syntax and the upcoming multi-processor Erlang. It was also very nice to hear the Erlang is spreading in Sout-America . Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the beer drinking at the ErlLounge afterwards. Hopefully, I'll be able to make it next year.

Yaws and Mnesia

I wrote a Yaws appmod the other day that is quite useful if you are using Mnesia and Yaws. It can be downloaded here.

Just put in your path, configure it as an appmod in your yaws.conf and point your browser to your server with ymnesia in the path.

You will be presented with a table containing all your Mnesia tables and their fields, where you can search on arbitrary Erlang terms (nb: atoms need to be single-quoted).
