frothkit – Project Hosting on Google Code

Froth is a Objective-C web application framework that brings the power and simplicity of Cocoa development to the web.

While froth web apps are technically deployable on many different platforms using Cocotron, currently our focus has been on the Amazon EC2 cloud.

Benefits of Froth

  • Uses the tools and language Mac and iPhone developers have come to know and love.
  • Reuse existing objc/c code from desktop applications.
  • Simple view templating support.
  • Very fast and scalable.
  • Affordable hosting on Amazon EC2 Cloud.
  • Multiple builds and deployments using standard Xcode deployments.

Simple Example

@interface WAHelloController : WebActiveController {}

// http://myexample.com/hello
(id)index😦WebRequest*)req;

// http://example.com/goodbye
(id)goodbyeAction😦WebRequest*)req;

@end

@implementation WAHelloController

(id)index😦WebRequest*)req {
       
return @“Hello World”;
}

(id)goodbyeAction😦WebRequest*)req {
       
return @“Goodbye”;
}

@end
