Apache-Royale-Try-it-now app

1. Installation of NodeJS and required modules

Install NodeJS

Install all dependencies:

npm install

2. Clone server/server.js from this repo to your local machine

Search for

const sdkPath

in server.js and point it to your local “Royale jsonly SDK”

3. Start server

node server.js

4. How to use

Using the UI:

Navigate to http://localhost:8080/static/ui/index.html Type Royale code on the left panel, Click on Run. The right panel should show the compiled Royale app.

Using the APIs:

Send a POST request with your Royale source code as payload:

POST http://localhost:8080/apache/royale/compiler/targets/html

Payload (Make sure to escape the source code):

    "source": "..." 


    "_id": "216108f0-e36c-11e7-805a-3dbc2fba1d86",
    "projectURL": "http://localhost:8080/static/216108f0-e36c-11e7-805a-3dbc2fba1d86/bin/js-debug/index.html",
    "compilerOutputURL": "http://localhost:8080/static/216108f0-e36c-11e7-805a-3dbc2fba1d86/compilerOutput.txt",
    "errorURL": "http://localhost:8080/static/216108f0-e36c-11e7-805a-3dbc2fba1d86/compilerError.txt"

5. How it works

The POST request initiates the creation of a unique Royale project directory at server side including a Main.mxml file that contains the passed Royale source code.
The project is compiled at server side and finally the service response with some particular URLs. For now, each request creates a new unique project direcory at server side. So we have implement some logic that takes care of removing all these directories.

A more matured version should place users in the position to create, edit and share Royale code/projects. We also want to send the compiler log in real time back to the client by e.g. using sockets.
