Getting started with Erlang and Nitrogen on Windows (in a single tweet)
All things are difficult before they are easy - Thomas Fuller
After spending quite some time trying to get an erlang/nitrogen instance running in windows, I finally managed to do it, and it turns out to be really simple once you know how to do it.
In fact, it is so simple, one can explain it in a single tweet:
Windows Erlang/Nitrogen in a tweet: install erlang.org/download/otp_w… in "c:\program files\erl7.5.7", unzip ….nitrogenproject.com.s3.amazonaws.com/win/nitrogen-2… & run start.cmd— Tom * suǝssuɐſ (@ToJans) September 14, 2012
When considering how simple it is, and looking back at my live blog post, my actions look a bit ridiculous, but not all is lost, as my discovery process somewhat helped me to get more acquainted with the whole Erlang story...
