cyberweb 0.4.107

Cyberweb is a tool-set project for the www, including an incomplete web "framework". The project attempts to explore different ideas, so it has a somewhat medium-to-large size as-is. As a project, cyberweb is quite far away from being complete or reasonably finished - consider it more as a proof-of-concept project than something that should be used in production. In fact, I use the project to explore new, web-related ideas all of the time. The cyberweb project in its present state is not fully documented either, which is unfortunate - I intend to improve on the documentation over time. The project is used since many years years to augment my own Ruby-CGI scripts. For these basic needs it works fairly well; it also explains why this project has to stay flexible, e. g. if I am to use sinatra rather than .cgi. In fact, since as of May 2021, I am using the cyberweb toolkit as a way to improve on sinatra-related functionality as well. While .cgi scripts are not that common to see past the year 2015, and admittedly not as flexible as sinatra or rails, I consider them still to be extremely SIMPLE to use and I really love simplicity. Compare a hello-world example in a .cgi script with one in rails; in my opinion, the cgi example is much, much simpler. I don't refer to the default cgi in ruby, though, which is admittedly horrible - otherwise I would not have had a need to create this project. :) If you need a framework that is more sophisticated, I can recommend sinatra and padrino. For more information about the web_object project, while keeping i mind that it is incomplete as-it-is, have a look at the documentation link towards the right hand side on the homepage of this gem, at:
