Factor/Furnace

The Factor web framework is called Furnace. It is found in the furnace vocabulary. There are several other vocabularies which play an integral role in web development as well:

  • db
  • http
  • html
  • syndication
  • urls
  • xml

Furnace was primarily inspired by three Java web frameworks:

01:57 < dnm> furnace?
01:57 < doublec> factor web framework
01:57 < doublec> it's the hottest thing in web development...

Furnace is not documented yet, however the html, http, syndication, xml, db, urls and validators vocabularies are documented. Some simple Furnace examples to look at are the following vocabularies in extra:

  • webapps.counter
  • webapps.calculator
  • webapps.ip

Some of the applications in webapps, such as webapps.wiki, do not provide their own CSS stylesheet or database configuration. As such, they need the common configuration from websites.concatenative to function.
