Welcome to the web site of the Spludlow Framework a light weight private cloud platform.

A Framework to simplify development and running of Enterprise/Distributed/Bespoke software systems using .net on Windows.

Providing a complete eco-system including all the plumbing to write, deploy and run code using distributed techniques like web services and message queues, with little prior experience of them.

Suitable for developers of all experience levels including hobbyists.

Included are several sub-systems to help with development, deployment, and monitoring.

Open source and Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v3.

Pragmatic Agile Development

The Spludlow Framework is all about distributed agility without forcing any design model, get your code running on a remote host in the simplest way possible.

Create a Web Service

Web Services are useful when an instant result is required from a remote host.

       public static int QueryStockLevelWebService(string host, string stockCode)


              return (int)Spludlow.Call.Now(host, "MyCompanyLib", "MyCompany.Stock", "QueryStockLevel", new object[] { stockCode });


       public int QueryStockLevel(string stockCode)


              //     Query database then return result


Run on a Message Queue

Running a method on a message queue is useful for “Long Running Processes”.

       public static void ProduceStatementsOnQueue(string host, DateTime statementDate)


              Spludlow.Call.Queue(host, "MyCompanyLib", "MyCompany.Customers", "ProduceStatements", new object[] { statementDate });


       public void ProduceStatements(DateTime statementDate)


              //     Query database then print and email customer statements
