Nitrogen is a popular open source Erlang Web framework that supplies developers with a rich set of features for building websites. It uses an event-driven model, letting Erlang developers use regular language features to write client-side elements as well as server-side code for handling webpage events. It also lets developers easily write interactive Web applications that use AJAX or long-polling techniques to deliver excellent responsiveness to end users. This article provides a brief introduction to Nitrogen along with examples highlighting the framework's features.
