A web service that supports Firefox's 'Share' feature.
Firefox exposes the share UI as a preference panel.
The web service handles the OAuth work and sending of messages to different share servers.
Some directory explanations:
- grinder: a load testing tool.
- tools: deployment tools.
- The rest of the files support the web service.
Installation and Setup
Get the server-share repository:
git clone https://github.com/mozilla/server-share.git cd server-share
If you are on OS X and you get errors or it does not work, see the OS X troubleshooting section below.
Start the virtualenv
Run the web server. 'reload' is useful for development, the webserver restarts on file changes, otherwise you can leave it off.
paster serve --reload development.ini
Then visit: http://127.0.0.1:5000/ for an index of api examples
Troubleshooting OS X installs
If the make build command produced errors or results in not being able to start up the server, use the following steps. It is suggested you re-clone server-share before doing the following steps, so that it starts out with a clean environment.
Make sure XCode 3 is installed.
Build your own version of Python:
sudo svn co http://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/buildout/python/ sudo chown -R $USER ./python cd python vi buildout.cfg: then remove any references to python 2.4 and 2.5 python bootstrap.py ./bin/buildout cd /usr/local/bin sudo ln -s /opt/python/bin/virtualenv-2.6 virtualenv
Now edit your .profile to make sure that if you have MacPorts installed, its PATH and MANPATH variables are last in the list for those environment variables.
I also removed export PYTHONPATH=/Users/aaa/hg/raindrop/server/python:$PYTHONPATH and removed /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin from the $PATH variable.
- Build C libraries via Homebrew:
Homebrew installs into /usr/local by default, and it is best if you chown the files in there to you:
sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local
If installed things before in these directories, remove these directories: /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSLk https://gist.github.com/raw/323731/install_homebrew.rb)" brew install memcached libmemcached
Then try the make build command above and continue from there.
Setting up a valid Google domain for OpenID+OAuth
You have to have access to a valid domain that google can get to and where you can install an html file.
Add your domain, follow the rest of their instructions.
To test: Once that is done, you can bypass normal access to your domain by adding to your /etc/hosts file:
Update development.ini and add your key/secret for the google configuration, restart paster.
Then in the web browser, hit ShareServer with http://your.host.com.
