GNUstepWeb is a framework for creating web-based applications using Objective-C. This guide aims to provide an overview of what is required in the creation and design of a very simple web application.

It is assumed you are familiar with GNUstep, and have a working GNUstep installation, including the GDL2 and GSWeb frameworks. Pre-requisites for GSWeb application deployment should also be in place.

File Components

In building your web application you will need to create a number of files. From scratch, the following should be a rough guide to getting it working. These include the Makefile, ...

The Makefile

For a web application, a special makefile is needed: luckily it's very similar to makefiles you may have used for other kinds of project. There is currently no out-of-the-box way to have these files built for you, so you'll have to do it manually.


For more information as to customising this file, as well as setting up compiler options for third party libraries and includes, see the GNUstep makefile manual.
