<h1>Getting started with Swarm development.</h1>
<p>First, get a copy of an up-to-date CannedData.dart so that you can work
against relatively live data directly while running the app off of the
local filesystem.</p>
<p>Put this file <a href='/data/CannedData.dart'>CannedData.dart</a> in your
working tree as <pre>dart/samples/swarm/CannedData.dart</pre></p>
<p>You should now be able to run your app out of your local filesystem
for UI development using something like: <pre>file:///Users/jimhug/dart-all/dart/samples/swarm/swarm.html</pre>.</p>
<p>When you are ready to test your new UI on this live server, first you
need to run <pre>python</pre> from your
<pre>dart/samples/swarm</pre> directory. This will build
both a self-contained html file for both js and dart code. Then,
use the link below to upload your files to this server. If you are
uploading for testing, keep the version as shown and you will be able
to access the js version at
<a href="{{user.nickname}}-swarm-js.html">{{user.nickname}}-swarm-js.html</a>.
By submitting with no prefix, you will update the default demo
version of the app.
<form action="/update/html" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
Upload File: <input type="file" multiple="" name="files"><br>
Version: <input type="text" value="{{user.nickname}}" name="version"><br>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
<br />
<h2>Fully offline mode</h2>
<p>Download <a href='/data/'></a> (right click, save as) and extract it to a location that your static file webserver serves. You'll want to run the following steps on Mac:
<li>In Sharing Preferences, enable Web Sharing.</li>
<li>Open this file in a text editor:<pre>/private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf</pre></li>
<li>Find the code like this, change "Deny from all" to "Allow from all":
&lt;Directory /&gt;
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
AddType text/html .data
sudo apachectl restart
pushd /Library/WebServer/Document
# If you are replacing old data:
# rm -rf data/
unzip ~/Downloads/
chmod -R +rw data
# Warning: this step takes a while
# It downloads all images from all of the stories and inlines them in the HTML
# You can skip this if you're iterating on the app, it's only needed for
# "full offline" demo mode
path/to/dart/dart/samples/swarm/ data/
<li>Download a copy of swarm-js.html from this server (or create with and save it as: /Library/WebServer/Document/index.html</li>
<li>Try out your app at: <a href="http://localhost/">http://localhost/</a></li>
