[ANN] Aida 6.5 Summer released: more Mobile, more Cloud, more REST, ...

Janko Mivšek
Dear Smalltalkers,

Summer Edition of Aida/Web framework and application server
(http://www.aidaweb.si) is here with bunch of new features:

   *Mobile* - the separate MobileApp classes now allow the mobile
version of your existing web apps to be developed and completely
tailored to mobile devices. Separate AidaMobile add-on based on jQuery
Mobile allows developing of professional and nice looking mobile apps,
rivaling the native ones. TwitterMobileApp demo is included.

   *Cloud* based on Cloudfork. Thanks to financial support by Citilab
Barcelona we have now an OpenID authentication and OAuth authorization
support in Aida. You can see OpenID in action live on our GSoC site
http://gsoc12.esug.org where you can register and one-click login using
Google as OpenID provider. No username/password needed. Future planes
includes Aida as OpenID provider and OAuth authorization server too.

   *REST* - Aida is RESTfull from the start but serving other than HTML
like JSON is now easier than ever. Goal for Aida is to seamlessly extend
the existing web apps to become REST API providers as well.

   *MethodLibrary* for importing ever more complex libraries directly
from internet and together with directory hierarchy into Smalltalk
methods and manage them with Smalltalk version control systems. jQuery,
Twitter Bootstrap, Amber included. You can now open Amber simply as:
http://localhost:8888/amber/index.html

More in Release notes: http://www.aidaweb.si/release-notes-6.3

On Pharo it is really simple to load, just evaluate this script:

  Gofer new
     squeaksource: 'MetacelloRepository';
     package: 'ConfigurationOfAida';
     load.

  (Smalltalk at: #ConfigurationOfAida) load.

Then simply open http://www.aidaweb.si:8888 .

There is also a OneClick image to get to Aida even faster:
htpp://www.aidaweb.si/download .

Best regards
Janko

Thanks Nicholas. And I'm hardly waiting for your comments and further ideas.

Can someone better test  Squeak and Pharo version as well? I'm just
finishing release notes and migration instructions...

Hi everyone,

The only thing I would change about the instructions so far is to point out that after loading Aida, you want to open up

http://localhost:8888, and not

http://www.aidaweb.si:8888

Take care,

Rob

Hi Bob, long time no see :)

Ups, this Url is wrong but also gsoc12.esug.org, it should be
http://gsoc2012.esug.org .

Thanks!

I find it pretty difficult to get more informations about all these new features. Well, you make it and therefore you know all of that - but for newcomers this seems to be difficult.

Can you tell me, what the Mobile support actually is. I've read, that it is based on JQueryMobile, but I do not find the stuff in your one-click version ...

Hi,

> I cannot download Aida6.5-final.1.mcz from the website getting
> /mc/mivsek/Aida/Aida6.5-final.1.mcz not found
>
this was in the context to use the static server to serve robots.txt.

So i downloaded the pharo one click, copied a robots.txt into the folder
with the image and got a debugger when trying to open
localhost:8888/robots.txt from a browser.

 From earlier experiments with an older Aida (6.2) I know that Aida
expects string to understand asFilename. String only understands
asFileName (N not n) so I implemented String>>asFilename like
^SpFilename name: self (haven't kept it) because further down a
SpFilename is expected. This is still the case in 6.5

This got me a bit further but still doesn't solve the problem. On 6.2
caching didn't work (FileProxy>>isToBeCached was not implemented). I'll
try to backport this.

The next bug in 6.5 is in SpEnvironment class>>onUnix by doubling
platformName. See pharo.png

Now I get no more debugger but the file still isn't served.
My robots.txt disallows all for any crawler but a recursive wget still
gets the whole Aidademo site.

Cheers

Herbert
