Prosper: A Framework for Extending Prolog Applications with a Web Interface
Welcome to the home page of Prosper, a framework for developing Prolog web applications.
The features of Prosper include:
- separation of presentation and application logic
- no need to turn to imperative languages to generate (X)HTML content in a convenient
- easy development of presentation layer using declarative XML template technology
- template technology provides local variables to store temporary computed values
and access to Prolog predicates in code-behind as well as HTTP request context and
- expression language for presentation layer computation, extensible with user-defined
- efficiency, flexibility and robustness by means of FastCGI connectivity to web server
- extensibility of template technology via user-defined elements
Prosper is written in SWI-Prolog but is generally portable. Notable SWI-specific
features utilized by Prosper include threads, blackboard-primitives and string manipulation.
For the sake of efficiency, FastCGI communication code is written in C, which is
also specific to SWI-Prolog.
