[squeak-dev] WebClient-Monticello

I wrote a proof-of-concept Monticello server implementation called MCWebServer, using WebServer from Andreas Raab's WebClient package. I think this is a nice example of how to use WebServer for something useful and real. It also documents the MC HTTP client/server protocol with working code. It is available from http://www.squeaksource.com/ADayAtTheBeach as WebClient-Monticello.x.n.mcz.

Load the code using Gofer (the code was written in Pharo but should be portable) (alternatively use Installer or do it manually):

Gofer new squeaksource: 'WebClient'; package: 'WebClient-Core'; load.
Gofer new squeaksource: 'ADayAtTheBeach'; package: 'WebClient-Monticello'; load.

Setting up your own minimal MC source code repository is now very easy:

(MCWebServer reset default)
	directory: (FileDirectory  on: '/tmp/monticello/');
	addUser: 'john' withPassword: 'secret';
	listenOn: 8800.

Make sure the specified directory exists. Choose a server port that is unused.

Access with the following specification:

	location: 'http://localhost:8800'
	user: 'john'
	password: 'secret'.
