The tutorial is based on a number of example programs illustrating the features of the <bigwig> language.


This section briefly introduces the individual aspects of the <bigwig> language.

Getting Started

This section explains the session-based runtime model, which constitutes the foundation of <bigwig>.

Dynamic Documents

Dynamic Documents allow easy and efficient creation of HTML documents. Document templates are treated as first-class values which can be combined using a "plug" operator and shown to the client with the "show-receive" statement.


PowerForms is the <bigwig> solution to client-side form input validation.


This section describes <bigwig>'s relational database. <bigwig> contains a simple internal database; in a future version, external databases (e.g. MySQL) will be integrated.


The syntax-based macro mechanism provides a method for constructing language abstractions in all the sublanguages of <bigwig>
