Hello, I am starting to use Zim as my personal wiki. I have chosen Zim after a long and painful selection process, because Zim fit best my idea of a personal wiki, and it seemed to be lightweight and minimalistic.
Now when I am getting to know Zim better, I am a bit surprised/disapointed that Zim comes with a build-in webserver. I know that the webserver is not running by default. But the sole existence of the webserver makes me question the underlying philosophy of zim development. A personal wiki is by definition personal, not public. There are plenty of collaborative, web-server based wikis for shared content editing. I see a dividing line between a personal wiki and public wiki. Both have their applications and uses, but should be kept separate. I find it alarming that there is a button in the menu, which when clicked, publishes my personal wiki on 0.0.0.0:8080. It is unlikely that I would click it by mistake, and even then, I still have 8080 blocked by firewall. But nevertheless there is something in me that does not like this idea even in theory. I would like to kindly suggest to re-evaluate the decision of whether it is a good idea to integrate a webserver into Zim. In the meantime, what would be the best way for me to disable the webserver on my machine? remove zim/gui/server.py and delete the following line from zim/gui/__init__.py ? ('show_server_gui', None, _('Start _Web Server'), '', '', True), # T: Menu item I hope you appreciate my feedback regards, Martin Vegter _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zim-wiki Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zim-wiki More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
