So I was building myself a quick little home page in Mathematica today and I'm hosting it in the Wolfram Cloud because that's a nice easy thing to do. One thing I was wondering about what standard web things the cloud is missing.

I am no web programmer, but one thing I was trying to do a bit ago was generate an HTTP redirect via php and it seemed the cloud didn't support me doing that. Could be I was just setting things up wrong or just misunderstanding how it should work -- as stated, not a web programmer -- but I guess it seems reasonable to me that the cloud wouldn't support php.

What other features is it (or is it at least just likely) missing? More and more I'm interested in doing things with static HTML and stuff, as cloud notebooks are in my experience slower, clunkier, and potentially restricted by my free account. Knowing what I can and cannot do with standard web programming in the Wolfram Cloud will let me better navigate what's worth developing and what isn't.

  • $\begingroup$ @M.R. :) alas I don't know enough web-programming to even know where to start, there. I think we can be sure that anything client-side (e.g. CSS, HTML, JavaScript, etc.) will function fine, as it seems to serve static content okay. But can we assume all the server-side stuff like php is missing? $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Jun 2 '17 at 16:42
