Morsel Morsel

Morsel is a Sinatra-like micro framework for declaring routes and handling requests. It is built on top of HttpServer.jl and Meddle.jl.

Installation: Pkg.add("Morsel")


Here is a brief example that will return a few different messages for different routes, if you run this and open localhost:8000 you will see "This is the root" for GET, POST or PUT requests. The line get(app, "/about") do ... is shorthand for only serving GET requests through that route.

using Morsel

app =

route(app, GET | POST | PUT, "/") do req, res
    "This is the root"

get(app, "/about") do req, res
    "This app is running on Morsel"

start(app, 8000)

Here is an example that:

  • Reads data from a csv
  • Runs a linear regression
  • Produces some interactive charts that can be viewed in your browser

The accompanying documentation is written for data scientists who have never written a web app before.
