Support and Training
You can get support and training directly from the library authors, with a guaranteed three-day response time.
Community help is available in the public forums. Until September 2009, there was only a mailing list (how to join), and the old dogs haven't left yet. You may search or browse the mailing list archives using the Gmane gateway (kudos to Pau Garcia i Quiles for setting this up).
To get up to speed with Wt and/or Wt::Dbo, you may also obtain training directly from the library authors.
We are greateful to these projects from which we borrowed code:
- The built-in httpd is based on an example of the asio C++ library, developed by Christopher M. Kohlhoff. Boost Software License
- The RapidXML library by Marcin Kalicinski. Boost Software License
- The authentication module contains bcrypt and passwdqc by Solar Designer. Public domain.
Other independent contributors include: Richard Ulrich, Gaetano Mendola, Thomas Suckow, Hilary Cheng, Dmitriy Igrishin, Daniel Derr, Omer Katz, and Lukasz Matuszewski, and many others (see the Changelog).
There is a community-run Wt Wiki with useful information, including installation notes for several Linux distributions.
Development of Wt is sponsored by the following companies and organisations:
|Emweb bvba||Creators, official maintainers, and support|
|Eurofer||Sponsored the development of the charting library, WTreeView and hierachical item models.|
User contributions are welcomed, ranging from simple patches to widgets, widget sets, and core improvements.
However, because Wt is dual-licensed under an Open Source and commercial license, and to legally protect the code base of Wt as a whole by one entity without having to worry about the copyrights for different pieces, we require a copyright assignment from contributors to Emweb before accepting the contribution.
