Web DevelopmentThis is where PicoLisp really shines!
Elevator Pitch goes here...
This article gives a high level overview of the technology and philosophy that drives PicoLisp web development. Otherwise, skip straight to the examples and tutorials below.
Consult the 'Form Library Ref.' in The Common Index while working through these tutorials.
- GUI component interaction A short script that presents a form with three fields to the user: a numeric input field ("Value") and two buttons ("Increment" and "Random").
- GUI enabling/disabling of controls Similar to the above example, but the buttons are dynamically enabled/disabled depending on the value of the '+NumField'.
- PicoLisp Application Development Creating apps with the builtin HTML/CSS GUI-framework.
- A Minimal DB/GUI Application A step by step walkthrough of the GUI-framework in action.
- Simple Canvas Drawing Using the HTML5 <canvas> Element.
- OpenStreetMap Geo-Data Putting it all together to build a simple geographic database and GUI.
- The Equivalence of Code and Data And why it's awesome for web development.
- CSS and the GUI framework Styling your PicoLisp applications.
- GUI Scripting Script-driven GUI interaction and automation
