Hi Luis, > that seems to imply that https/SSL has been implemented. > So my question, can a https server application be build in Picolisp > with a certificate signed by some CA?
Yes. PicoLisp application servers may use the 'httpGate' proxy that comes with the distribution. For example, the demo app in https://app.7fach.de uses a certificate for 7fach.de In fact, also the PicoLisp Wiki runs on the same machine, and could be called as https://picolisp.com, though this gives a warning because the cert is issued only for 7fach.de. httpGate has also other advantages, as presenting a single port (typically 80 or 443) to the client, resulting in better XMLHttpRequest behavior due to the same-origin policy. Also, it automatically starts server processes whenever needed. > If so, what part of the documentation am I missing? Unfortunately, this is not fully documented yet :( The basic call is (as root): <pathTo>/bin/httpGate 80 8080 <pathTo>/bin/httpGate 443 8080 <pem> This starts two proxies, one listening on 80 (http) and one on 443 (https). Both will connect to a PicoLisp server listening on 8080. For automatically starting PicoLisp servers, you can call it instead as. <pathTo>/bin/httpGate 443 <names> <pem> The file <names> holds a configuration for the servers to be started. This is the part which still needs to be documented. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:email@example.com?subject=Unsubscribe
