Introduction

This is an attempt to run a MOO server with a Web interface similar to Parchment. It's basically just some client-side JS that communicates with a Node server via Socket.io, which itself forwards input from a MOO served via a unix domain socket.

The server automatically takes care of starting the MOO server process, performing MOO database file rotation, and cleanly shutting down the MOO server on SIGINT.

MOO was chosen instead of creating a similar engine from scratch due to its maturity and extensive documentation.

Installation

This code has only been tested with Node v0.3.6 and Socket.io v0.6.8.

Make sure Socket.io is available at the socket.io directory.

Enter the moo directory and run ./configure && make.

You'll probably want to create a file called config.local.json that contains something akin to the following:

{
  "moo": {
    "dbFile": "moo/LambdaCore-latest.db"
  },
  "key": "key.pem",
  "cert": "cert.pem",
  "ca": "ca.pem"
}

If you don't want to serve over SSL, leave out the key, cert, and ca information.

Once all this is done, run node server.js to start the server, and then open your browser to 127.0.0.1:7777.

Limitations

Actually creating anything worthwhile on the MOO requires an easier editing interface, which this project currently lacks.
