Modifying and scripting the web-interface


#1

Hello everyone.
Since bitkeeper has it’s own http server, I wonder if it is possible to add simple buttons to the interface.

I want to execute commands or scripts on the server, if I click a button on the webpage.

Is this possible?

Thank you, Louis

Hi Louis,

the web server is hard coded in C, see src/bkd_http.c. I don’t think you
are going to want to hack that but I dunno.

Damon and I talked about rewriting BK/Web in L but we never did it because
BK/Web does some of stuff that would perform poorly if it wasn’t able
to access BK internals directly.
