Book Description

The tools to build engaging and secure web applications are changing at a furious pace. Over the last few years the Lift framework along with the Scala programming language have emerged as a recognized toolset to develop secure, scalable, and responsive applications.

"Instant Lift Web Applications How-to" will help you get started with the Lift framework. Learn through practical and relevant examples how important tasks are accomplished, from setting up your development environment to extending your application with a REST API.

Through a number of clear, practical recipes you will be guided through setting up your development environment, starting your first Lift application, and developing practically relevant features for your own applications. You will be introduced to Lifts building blocks like Designer Friendly Templates, Snippets, and CSS Selectors. Learn how to integrate AJAX into your applications and how to make them even more responsive with Comet updates from the server to the browser. We will talk about REST API integration as well as integrating CSS frameworks like Twitter Bootstrap into your own applications. Learn everything you need to know to start developing engaging, real life web applications with the Lift framework and the key features Lift offer you to be able to understand its benefits.
