Abstract [en]

Tools for monitoring Erlang nodes exist but they have not aged well. With the help of new web technologies such as HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 more modern interfaces can be developed. However, to combine an Erlang backend with a web front-end requires a very broad skill set. This thesis aims to present a prototype framework to simplify the construction of web based interfaces for Erlang developers. The framework consists of multiple layers to achieve modularity (such as supporting multiple Erlang web servers). Functionality is implemented in so called components (with similarities to an MVC structure) that each consists of an Erlang module, HTML templates, a CSS file, a JavaScript file and a config file. While the main purpose was to implement monitoring functionality, the framework is general enough to implement custom functionality.

Evaluation was conducted using usability testing and this helped to identify problems which led to a change in the framework structure.
