“Hello World” is an extremely simple Web applications that just displays Hello World when accessed over the web. We use it to give you a taste for what is involved to package web application for UBOS.
“Glad-I-Was-Here” is a slightly more complex “guestbook” web application that uses a relational database to store the guestbook entries. We use it to illustrate how to package web App that use a database. It now comes in four versions:
implemented in PHP with a MySQL backend, called
implemented in PHP with a Postgresql backend, called
implemented in Java with a MySQL backend, called
implemented in Python/WSGI with a MySQL backend, called
The PHP versions of Glad-I-Was-Here can also be configured with an Accessory called
gladiwashere-php-footer. This Accessory adds additional content (a footer) to the main
web page. This demonstrates the basic functioning of Accessories.
Of course, instead of using the pre-built Apps, you can check out their code at https://github.com/uboslinux/ubos-toyapps/ and build them youself with the development setup described in Build and run your first UBOS Standalone App.
