Minimal release features:
- Root is a page that gives you the configuration in a textarea with a post button
If you call the reload action, force-recomp
- It's hard to see how to pass the flag to the next invocation of itself
There's no way to update the ALPACAS library from within itself
You can get into a hosed state with a stale binary
Reload action doesn't always return a page
We're better off now that it's not returning a 500, so we can defer this for now
The 500 status code was triggering an infelicity in Chrome that made the browser refuse to send a request to the reload action.
Snap doesn't let us exit the server without raising an AsyncException. Right now, we're using
UserInterruptto signal exit, but that makes the command-line interface gross. We need to submit a patch to
snap-serverthat gives us a function to call that will exit the server.
This will still be a bit tricky, because we'll have to decide what to do with the existing connections to the server.
Ideally, we'd hold on to the open connections when we restart the server (especially the server socket, and just let the connections queue until we're back up). This is a tricky one.
Next features - Alpacase 'reset', to clear out the .config / .cache / etc. content
find-file - File reading/writing via a crude textarea interface (finish
Make a trivial web server 'kernel' that has very basic capabilities: edit config, reload, and proxies all "real" requests to a child process that runs the functional web server. (This makes it so that you can see the console output while reloading, gives a safety net if you break things, etc..)
