Yuma is a powerful new Web scripting tool. It features a strongly-typed, object oriented language with clear, clean syntax and native compiled-to-machine-code speeds on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Like PHP and ASP, Yuma is an HTML preprocessor. You build Web applications by embedding executable Yuma code in your HTML documents. The Yuma server compiles that code on the fly and serves the results with impressive speed.

Give Yuma a try. The development server is free and loaded with great Web debugging features. When you're ready to deploy your professional Web application, you'll want a copy of the Yuma Enterprise Server that more...

Version 1.1:
  • [Fix]Fixed a bug in HTTPSocket.Post (and several similar socket methods) thatcould crash the server under heavy load.

Hi all,

I have been using PHP, JSP and Servlets for many years now for large projects on Linux and OSX Servers. I have had Yuma installed for about 3 weeks now and I'm incredibly impressed. It's lightning fast, stable and has a fantastic syntax. I have it running on an OSX Server with Apache. Yuma was simple to install and the development server allows testing new code without the need to configure apache.

I have paid for the Yuma Enterprise Server and will certainly use Yuma over PHP, JSP or Servlets for future projects.

It costs nothing to download the development server to check it out - you will be impressed!!

It's not clear what the benefit of this product is over systems like PHP or Ruby on Rails. The documentation seems rather sparse, you have to pay for an enterprise deployment (unlike the free PHP or RoR). As for language maturity, Ruby at least is a very mature, very sophisticated language. Yuma looks like a species of Visual Basic. I'm not sure why I'd want to use, much less buy, this product.

You are correct about the documentation. We just announced the product this week. We expect it to be in beta through April, during which time we will be adding some features, addressing reported issues, and completing the documentation.

We have quite a bit of PHP development experience. We prefer Yuma's strong typing and built-in, on-the-fly compilation of served pages. Many bugs are caught at compile time that might otherwise linger in PHP code until that portion of the code is executed. In our tests, we also find Yuma to be considerably faster than PHP, particularly for computationally intensive pages.

The Yuma language certainly has some roots in BASIC, but it is a thoroughly modern object-oriented language. We find that many developers prefer Yuma's clean syntax over PHP's C-like implementation.

We did not post Yuma to MacUpdate, but we're flattered that someone thought enough of it to do so. Please give us a chance to get through our beta process before passing judgement. In the meantime, we certainly welcome your feedback.
