mobwrite-tornado
================
Authors:
--------
Neil Fraser et al. - a gentleman and a scholar. A god among men. He wrote mobwrite
and the original daemons.
Avery Pennarun (apenwarr) - wrote a tornado wrapper around the original mobwrite
daemon. Also made some small fixes. See:
http://groups.google.com/group/mobwrite/browse_thread/thread/871e899bec56d005
Michael Huynh (mikexstudios) - created this repo (clone from apenwarr); decided to
simplify the repository by stripping out all
files not related to the tornado daemon. Made some
small changes. This is me.
Purpose:
--------
1. Providing a simple repository to play with a tornado-based mobwrite daemon.
2. For furthering my own understanding.
3. Improve the tornado daemon and mobwrite javascript client by using HTML5 Web
Sockets and tornado's new Web Sockets support.
What I am working on:
---------------------
1. Simplifying javascipt client by using web sockets.
2. Related to #1: Modifying daemon to use tornado's web sockets.
3. Understanding mobwrite_core and mobwrite_daemon so I can strip it down and
make it more "pluggable" (eg. working with mysql backend or plugging into
Django app).
How to use
----------
1. Install the prerequisites that are in requirements.txt. (I like to use a
virtualenv environment; then invoke pip to install directly from the
requirements.txt file.)
2. Run the daemon: python mobwrite.py
3. Visit http://localhost:3017/ in your browser.
