Web Interface

Postby VirusEcks » Mon Jul 05, 2010 11:56 pm

I'm VirusEcks
a realtivly new c++ developer, but been developing for about 11 years
have experience with c++, vb, php, perl, http, fb, lua, and ofc msl (mirc scripting language)
i'm 22 Years old

currently i'm helping with the developmnet of web interface for the RetroShare

Code: Select all
|                                 NOTE                                 |
|     Below this line are Technical information and some babbling      |
|           If you want to keep your sanity don't read it :P           |

Basicly Qt is good, perfect for all cross-platform development
i've decided to put it aside and start new due to the lack of expierince with Qt and due
to the need for a real quick start
So basicly my first binary will be a windows only binary

more technical info :
i've though a lot, like few hours on what to use in the http server to use
lots of choices, lots of features, lots of memory-hungry procedures
still .. lacks the main features : secure, fast, small, simple
so i decided to start my own mini-httpd

the web interface will be consiting of 2 main parts :
1- the c++ code ( RetroShare, httpd parser, ... )
2- the http file ( javascript, html, css, ... )

the main part (1) as i mentioned above will be the link between the RetroShare
Library and the web browser
as for part (2) will be no more than a gui for the user, no connections will be made
through the web broswer to the secured client on the other end

atm i will be using std library for strings, vectors, queues .. just for a quick start
and testing and easy debugging
i'll be trying to put any external libraries aside due to the fact that i never developed
for linux before .. so i have no idea about the portability/cross platform issues

any help with the RetroLibrary or code portability is appreciated ..
as for the first code release will be soon, i hope.

Any Updates here?

A web interface in combination with a headless server is THE thing that is missing in retroshare ..

It could indeed be an interesting evolution.
