App::VW is a system for deploying Squatting web apps using the Continuity backend. It's modeled after rv which was a system for deploying Camping applications during the Camping 1.5 era.
If you like the idea of starting up a cluster of web servers and putting them behind a reverse proxy (like nginx, perlbal, or Apache's mod_proxy_balancer), then vw might be the system for you.
First, install the vw system:
sudo vw install
Then, setup some apps for vw to manage:
sudo vw setup App --port=5000 --cluster-size=1
Starting and stopping vw:
sudo /etc/init.d/vw start
sudo /etc/init.d/vw stop
Making vw start up at boot time (on Debian-derived systems):
sudo update-rc.d vw defaults
Disabling vw from starting up at boot (on Debian-derived systems):
sudo update-rc.d -f vw remove
Watching vw's syslog output (on Debian-derived systems):
sudo tail -f /var/log/user.log
