Dashcode Deployment Hell

Discussion in 'Programmer Tools' started by Joshua Whalen, Nov 12, 2011.

  1. Hiya!!

    My name's Joshua, and I'm a developer / sys admin for #Occupy Wall
    Street. I'm trying to build a simple rss feed web app in dashcode.
    Sadly, I'm not much of a javascript programmer, so I'm just doing a
    point-n-click-in-the-template app.

    I'm running into trouble with deployment. My server is
    www.occupyeverything.info, and the app will be served from user feeds,
    so the url is http://www.occupyeverything.info/~feeds/NYCGA/. NYCGA is
    the directory in the public_html folder I want to serve the app from.

    Where I'm running into trouble is uploading it via ftp. No matter what I
    use as an ftp path, I keep ending up with stuff like
    "http://www.occupyeverything.info/~feeds/NYCGA//ftp://
    rything.info/~feeds/NYCGA/" which is clearly not what I want. Can anyone
    help me with this? The project file is here:
    <http://www.occupyeverything.info/~feeds/NYCGA/dev.zip>

    If someone who knows dashcode could take a peek, I'd be most grateful,
    but PLEEZ don't just fix it for me, because even paranoids (like me)
    have real enemies. I'm sure you'll all understand.

    TIA!!

    Joshua & #OWS IT.

    Oh--- there's one more thing:

    the server is debian 6 in 64 bit mode, running apache2 in default
    configuration.

    Thanks again!

    Smell like troll and if I am misjudging you I apologize. If you were
    really a developer/sysadmin it seems unlikely that you'd be asking this
    question. From your description your problem isn't in Dashcode, it's in
    using your FTP application.

    Not Troll. The problem isn't with my ftp app, it's with the one built
    into Dashcode. It's rather rigid in how it requires you to define your
    upload data and app path data, and honestly, this is a real post, and
    since it's #OWS, it's kind of urgent. If you have a clue, I'd really
    appreciate the help. If you don't, id' really appreciate you minding
    your own business and not calling people who've
    <a href="http://www.biguglyrock.net/">been using usenet</a> since you
    were probably still in diapers trolls. Click the computers tab at the
    above url for partial bonafides. Sadly, it's in early development at
    this stage, or just google my full name and see who's company I keep on
    line. the name is Joshua F. Whalen. Thank you.

    OUCH!!! Gimme a minute, I'll fix it. Thanks for trying, Jolly! Also,
    thanks for sticking up for me in comp.sys.mac.system. I appreciate both!

    Pardon me. The url works now. Thanks again, pal!

    Sorry for the misjudgment. We get the odd "click on this file" spam
    from malefactors in Usenet after all (FWIW I suspect I am a lot older
    than you think I am, which is pretty typical in this newsgroup...).

    Can't help with fixing the problem, unfortunately. Good luck with it
    and hope someone finds a pointer in the right direction.

    Wouldn't surprise me. I'm beginning to think I made a bad choice of app
    here. Apple does occasionally ship something and then forget to make it
    work. :)

    There's a screenshot at
    <http://www.occupyeverything.info/~feeds/screenshot.png> and another at
    <http://www.occupyeverything.info/~feeds/screenshot2.png> that shows
    what's wrong with the upload url. It doesn't matter how I structure the
    url, it keeps munging it.

    I could show you a few more examples. Try creating an rss app of your
    own instead of working with mine see what happens when you try to upload
    it and then read a feed from it. you can copy my feed from
    <http://www.occupyeverything.info/~feeds/nycga.rss> and upload it to
    your own server and you'll probably see what the problem is. The feed
    has to originate from the same server as the app.

    Thanks so much for all the time your spending on this, Jolly. I always
    worry with problems like this that I'm making some huge mental error and
    just not seeing it. That's where people like yourself are particulalry
    priceless.

    Thanks again!

    sorry I got hot under the collar. I thought that the click on this thing
    was better than an attachment (even if my host allowed them) cause those
    are often a trap, too. I suppose you really were justified, it's just
    that after camping out in zuccotti park and coding under the weirdest
    conditions imaginable, my brain is getting decidedly crisp at this point.

    As I just pointed out to Jolly Roger, I always worry that the answer is
    obvious and I just don't see it. That's where the usenet folks are so
    helpful. Having different set of eyes look at the problem really helps
    sometimes. Thanks for sharing yours.

    Woweee!
    I haven't seen one of those in a loooooong time! *sigh* those were the
    days!

    I'll tell you, one thing I am very happy about is the number of old
    machttp/webstar alumni who've been jumping in and volunteering their
    time and expertise for this! I always felt like something like #OWS is
    what we were all doing all that fun bleeding edge work for in the first
    place, so I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised, but still, it's so
    gratifying to find that I really did pick the right crowd to hang with!

    I was locked out of the office on Bway yesterday, and all my gear
    (laptop, iphone) were locked in it, so I'm a day behind in my emails and
    newsposts. I'll try your remedy for dashcode momentarily and let you
    know if it fixes things!
