This is an implementation of a real time collaborative document editor which uses my Operational Transformation library.
Works with Node 0.4.X.
$ git clone https://github.com/fitzgen/operational-transformation-example.git $ cd operational-transformation-example/ $ ./util/setup.sh $ cd src/ $ node r.js server.js 25 Apr 21:56:13 - Your node instance does not have root privileges. This means that the flash XML policy file will be served inline instead of on port 843. This will slow down initial connections slightly. 25 Apr 21:56:13 - socket.io ready - accepting connections Listening on port 8080
Now just open a couple tabs in your browser and point them to http://127.0.0.1:8080/ and you can create and collaboratively edit a plain text document between the tabs. (At the time of this writing, April 25th 2011, you have to use firebug or some other web inspector to find out what the document ID is so that your second tab can join the first's session).
Run this to set up a fresh dev environment after you have cloned this repository. Pulls down dependencies, runs the RequireJS converter script on third party modules, etc.
Reset the environment as if it were a fresh clone of the repo. Will need to call
./util/setup.shonce more to start developing again.
