Genie

The highly productive Julia web framework

Genie is a full-stack MVC web framework that provides a streamlined and efficient workflow for developing modern web applications. It builds on Julia's strengths (high-level, high-performance, dynamic, JIT compiled), exposing a rich API and a powerful toolset for productive web development.

Current status

Genie is compatible with Julia v1.0 and up.


Getting started

Installing Genie

In a Julia session switch to pkg> mode to add Genie:

julia>] # switch to pkg> mode
pkg> add https://github.com/genieframework/Genie.jl

Alternatively, you can achieve the above using the Pkg API:

julia> using Pkg
julia> pkg"add https://github.com/genieframework/Genie.jl"

When finished, make sure that you're back to the Julian prompt (julia>) and bring Genie into scope:

julia> using Genie

Using Genie

Genie can be used for a variety of tasks, from quickly whipping up a web server to full MVC web apps. Use the following resources to dive into each use case.
