XUL-Node - server-side XUL for Perl
This is great....for those who do they work in perl. I hope something similiar is coming in php. I'm to busy (lazy) to code something myself.
I didn't find any live XUL-Node examples. Does it exist?Comment by Shetil at July 1, 2004 12:31 PM | Permalink

I tried writing something like this for PHP a while back, but couldn't figure out a way to get the client-side to send requests with data, ie from forms.
The isue really was the difference between the HTTP request model (send request->get response) and the client-side app model (user makes changes, immediate reaction) that XUL is designed for.
I might look through their code to see their JS library, but AFAIK, there is still no way of getting around the core problem with Remote XUL - which, if done right, could result in some killer applications for the mozilla framework.Comment by Jason Lustig at July 1, 2004 09:24 PM | Permalink
1) XUL-Node is small and simple. A PHP porting task would be the same, and I would love to help, despite me not speaking the language.
2) There are no live examples, unless someone donates a server. I will prepare a binary that will alow you to run the server examples with no Perl installed.Comment by Ran Eilam at July 8, 2004 04:01 PM | Permalink
