Setting up Wesk

Setting up Wesk couldn’t be easier. Just enter your website address, and off you go.

Wesk Welcome

As you can see from the screenshot above, you can choose to provide either of the following:
- An external URL, where your website is hosted
- A folder on your own computer (or a network share)

What’s the difference?

Using a URL

Using a URL

If you provide a URL, it’s clear that your web application is already being hosted elsewhere. This is the most common option, and Wesk will connect to this URL. Your web app can be hosted anywhere (the Internet, your intranet, your own machine…).

Using a folder on your computer

Self Hosting

If you select a folder on your computer, your web app will automatically be hosted by Wesk.

Only Static Content served here (for the time being)

This will work if your web application is composed of static content only (HTML files, javascript, CSS, etc.).
It won’t work if you have a dynamic website (i.e. using technologies such as PHP, ASP.NET, Ruby-on-Rails etc.).

What if I want to use more than one app at a time?

It's entirely possible! Start Wesk, and click on the "Create a new Wesk App" button:
tut1-008 Every time you create a new Wesk App, a link will be created to it on your desktop.
You can create as many apps as you like – just be sure to make a note of the link so you can access it easily.
When you start Wesk using the Wesk shortcut, it will, by default, run the latest app you created.
