A simple web framework with File System Routing and Simplates

Table of Contents


Infuse is a filesystem router powered by Simplates. Simplates are a file format for server-side web programming. They're are a clean way of bringing your templates and code closer together. Infuse works by giving you a web_root that you can use for Simplates or static files

Quick Start

Installing Infuse is as simple as creating a new Elixir app and requiring the server, from then on anything you put in your www directory will be served. Any application code you write in your lib folder will be available to your simplates.

  1. Start by creating a new mix application
    $ mix new my_website
  2. Now modify your deps() function to include Infuse.
    def deps do
      [{:infuse, "~> 0.3.0"}]
  3. Create a www directory
    $ mkdir www 
  4. Create a new simplate called index.html.spt in that www directory
      IO.puts("I live in a Simplate")
      rand_num = :rand.uniform(10)
      <h1>Hello, my favorite random number is <%= rand_num %>!</h1>
      <p style="font-size: 24px; line-height: 24px;">
          <span style="margin-left: 80px;">☄</span><br />
          <br />
      Help save the unicode snowman!
  5. Start your server
    $ mix run --no-halt
  6. Open your browser to: http://localhost:8101/
