PLT Scheme version 4.1.2 is now available from
Many users often post to the
plt-scheme mailing list asking for introductions to Web application development in PLT Scheme. They've heard of the continuation-based PLT Web Server and want a gentle introduction. Unfortunately, there has been a distinct lack of good documentation and tutorials for the server. Taking the cue from two users: Jens Axel Soegaard and David Reynolds, we've written a tutorial with Danny Yoo.
The tutorial is available at http://docs.plt-scheme.org/continue/index.html. It walks through the creation of a blog application, introducing features slowly and culminates in an SQL-backed database for the posts. Of particular interest, is the fast start servlet setup based on the Instaservlet package from Untyped.
Please take a look and pass along this as a pointer to those who may be interested in PLT Scheme.
PLT Scheme version 4.1.1 is now available from
- web-server: New servlet development tutorial; quick launching of servlets from DrScheme via the `web-server/insta' language; new form abstraction through formlets.
