Dependency Status

This is a Node.js-based server for FATE, the FFmpeg Automated Testing Environment (FFmpeg) or FATE Automated Testing Environment (Libav). It is written with Express.js, EJS (Embedded Javascript) and a few other modules. It is geared towards performance (compared to the old Perl CGI-based fateserver) and extensibility (clean JS code and EJS templates).

Why Not Jade? It's so much cleaner...

It is not that cleaner than EJS, but a lot slower (up to 16x slower in my test without caching, i.e. even slower than the old fateserver).

If caching is enabled, and with(){} syntax is disabled, my tests show that it is 1.7x slower.

See for yourself in the jade branch (only history page ported).

FooTable Version

fateserver-node uses the MIT-licensed FooTable library. However, it does not have an npm package, so any update must be done manually.

The version of FooTable currently in the source tree is 2.0.3.

However, the FooTable in the source tree is not vanilla from the source. On the stylesheet part, the font loading routine is removed, and all font glyphs used by fateserver-node are redirected to the prettier FontAwesome glyphs in public/css/footable.custom.css.

On the JavaScript part, a patch is applied to greatly improve performance.
