Sitelets can model anything that has to do with the server side: from microservices and backends of client-server applications to statically generated websites. Using just a few sitelet combinators and some clever custom web controls, you can also build a full content management system (CMS) for your sitelet pages in just a couple hundred lines of F# code.
In this talk, I will go over some of the sitelet fundamentals, build the necessary web controls and their datastore, utilize external HTML templates instead of in-code HTML construction, and abstract the entire CMS capability as a single generic sitelet combinator. At the end, you can add a complete CMS subsystem to any sitelet you choose with not much more than a single function call. Not only that, but you can also embed the resulting CMS-enhanced pages in your Giraffe or Saturn applications, and enjoy the best of breed of F# web stacks.
