These are example applications for Weblocks. Originally these examples were in Weblocks repository and then moved out.

Weblocks Demo

A simple Weblocks demo, contains two editable related tables.

  • (ql:quickload :weblocks-demo)
  • (weblocks-demo:start-weblocks-demo)
  • Go to http://localhost:8080/weblocks-demo url

Weblocks CLSQL Demo

Similar to "Weblocks Demo", but uses CLSQL as database layer.

  • (ql:quickload :weblocks-clsql-demo)
  • Put correct auth data for mysql into weblocks-clsql-demo/conf/stores.lisp (for quicklisp usually .quicklisp/dists/quicklisp/software/weblocks-examples-.../weblocks-clsql-demo/conf/stores.lisp) There should be just access to empty database.
  • Again (ql:quickload :weblocks-clsql-demo)
  • (weblocks-clsql-demo:start-weblocks-clsql-demo)
  • Go to http://localhost:8080/ url

Weblocks Elephant Demo

Similar to "Weblocks Demo", but uses Elephant as database layer.

  • (ql:quickload :weblocks-elephant-demo)
  • Install Berkeley DB. For me it worked with libdb4.6 and libdb4.6-dev
  • Update elephant config. It is usually situated in .quicklisp/dists/quicklisp/software/elephant-.../my-config.sexp I've changed first 4 strings of my-config.sexp to

lisp (:COMPILER . :GCC) (:BERKELEY-DB-VERSION . "4.6") (:BERKELEY-DB-INCLUDE-DIR . "/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.6/include/") (:BERKELEY-DB-LIB-DIR . "/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.6/lib/") (:BERKELEY-DB-LIB . "/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.6/lib/libdb-4.6.so")

  • Create weblocks-elephant-demo/data (for quicklisp usually .quicklisp/dists/quicklisp/software/weblocks-examples-.../weblocks-elephant-demo/data)
  • (weblocks-elephant-demo:start-weblocks-elephant-demo)
  • Go to http://localhost:8080/weblocks-demo url
