Provide a Tutorial, starting with Wt Basic Concepts
Koen Deforche, Wt Author, in:
If you want to get a good understanding, you will need to get familiar with the basic concepts in Wt (which are really not that many): widgets, WTemplate and WTemplateFormView.
As a conclusion, a tutorial similar to this should be provided:
- Hello World (very simple)
- An example with simple user interaction
- A simple widget example
- A simple WTemplate example
- A simple WTemplateFormView example
Then, this could go on with making a "classic" website layout, e.g. like this:
- Create a website, based on a Layout Manager (e.g. Border Layout)
- Extend the site with widgets
- Add a navigation widget
- Add an Editor Widget (e.g. tinyMCE)
- Add user authentication
The tutorial could/should be a source-code-tree, which contains the documentation. A user would work through the examples, one after another, and read the code and the docu therein.
Or it could be produced in the (very nice) form of the widget gallery (http://www.webtoolkit.eu/widgets)
Users have a need for something like this, see here:

I think it would be great to have tutorial where will be demonstrated using of Wt from Hello world page to complex site.
