A Simple Webmachine Example

Bryan Fink (of BeerRiot fame and a colleague at Basho) recently posted a great example of how easy it is to make a useful and working Webmachine resource.

He then followed up with more examples, showing how easy it is to add support for PUT, for authorization, and for
entity tags.

Yesterday's post wrapped up his short series by not only adding DELETE support but also reflecting on the nature of Webmachine and how it lets you improve the way you think about and use the power of HTTP in your applications.

Bryan knows both Erlang and Web programming well; his examples are worth the read.
