Fortran is foundational to languages we use today.

Fortran never left us... it runs our mainframes today.

Ashes to ashes. Dust into dust. Fortran to JavaScript, back to Fortran

An MVC Framework

Everything to get started, even if you don't know Fortran

Open Source

The source code and documentation are open source, BSD license FLIBS code by Arjen Markus and Ricolindo Carino


Fortran.io is like PHP: FastCGI runs a script which outputs HTML strings

Using Ubuntu

sudo ./install_deps_ubu.sh


sudo apt-get install nginx gfortran spawn-fcgi git libfcgi-dev sqlite

git clone https://github.com/mapmeld/fortran-machine.git

Use gfortran to compile flibs and other libraries, then:

spawn-fcgi -a -p 9000 ./fortran_fcgi

Try a search

This will run a query on a SQLite database.
