We developed the hangman example in 2006 to demonstrate Wt’s principles to first-time users. The tutorial used this examples to walk through the libraries basic functions. Over the years Wt evolved and many new features were introduced, but the hangman example did not always follow these new developments.
We are pleased to announce to that we have updated both the hangman example source code and the tutorial text to the current state of Wt.
The hangman example now also talks about:
Wt basics: compiling and running a Wt application, session management, the use of widgets, signals and slots
The use of Wt::Auth for user authentication
Wt::Dbo for interaction with databases
Layouting methods: CSS, layout managers and WTemplate
Support for in-application URLs (wt’s internal path API)
In the same effort, we also restyled the Wt::Dbo tutorial, but the contents remained largely the same.
