Example Applications

1.0 env.tcl

This is a very simple script that can used as a starter template for a larger application. All it does is show the CGI environment of each web request. Run it like this:

wapptclsh env.tcl

You can add additional path terms and/or query parameters to the URL in your browser to see how this affects the parameter values.

2.0 formajax01.tcl and formajax02.tcl

These scripts demonstrate how to use XMLHttpRequest with Wapp to send form data back to the server. The formajax01.tcl script sends back the form data as JSON and formajax02.tcl sends the data as application/x-www-form-urlencoded. The form data received by the server is printed on standard output.

To run these examples:

wapptclsh formajax01.tcl
wapptclsh formajax02.tcl

3.0 tableajax01.tcl

This script demonstrates how a button click on a webpage can be used to fetch additional HTML text from the server (a <table> in this case) and insert that new HTML at some position within the DOM. To run this script:

wapptclsh tableajax01.tcl

See comments in the script source code for additional information.

4.0 shoplist.tcl

This is an actual application used by the Wapp author's family to keep track of grocery lists. To run it, enter

wapptclsh shoplist.tcl -DDBFILE=shoplist-demo.db

The "shoplist-demo.db" is a demonstration database for testing purposes. The "-DDBFILE=shoplist-demo.db" argument causes the global TCL variable named "DBFILE" to be overwritten with the value of "shoplist-demo.db", for testing purposes. For actual deployment of this script, you would want to modify the script to set the DBFILE variable to the correct database name.

The password for the "shoplist-demo.db" database is "12345".

When the app is running, the /env page shows the CGI environment for debugging and testing purposes.

5.0 self.tcl and self2.tcl

These scripts give examples of Wapp applications that can display a copy of themselves. The self-display for self.tcl is in the /self page and is actually a very small part of the total script. For the self2.tcl example, the color of the text for the self-display is controlled by a query parameter.

Both of these example scripts are installed on the canonical Wapp website so that you can easily try them out:
