Review: “Lift Cookbook” By Richard Dallaway, O’Reilly Media
I’ve written many web apps in many framework and languages (Sinatra, Rails ⇾ Ruby; Snap ⇾ Haskell; Play! ⇾ Scala; Mochiweb ⇾ Erlang). However, Lift was not-so-easy to grasp for me.
Lift Cookbook is very practical book. Author covers the most basic & used aspects of web apps (HTML rendering, form, Ajax, REST API, connecting to SQL & NoSQL databases and more). Material is presented in question-answer (+discussion) form. Author provided set of repositories on Github as working examples.
Book is well written. Examples work. That’s how good cookbooks should look like.
