"In House" "LAN" ??
I second Monte's motion on this one. I must have a dozen programs
running in house that are deployed by just creating little splash screen
I put the stack on a web site on the server, but no one actually views
anything in a web browser. (well occasionally I pass off some resource
to the web browser) Just to be clear for my own brain, I call the
widgets that are deployed to client station "Launchers"
Our macho OS X Server is running apache....
I put the stand alone launcher on the web server, I keep all these on a
single web page
with links to the launchers, one URL per standalone
[I tried a single launcher once, that downloaded an "index" stack for
all other stacks, but it never worked well. People are so used to having
a single "app" for each "thing" that now I issue a special splash
screen for every new app...]
has a nice graphic on the main card and this in the stack script
set the loc of this stack to the screenloc
send "LaunchGrapple" to this stack in 1 seconds
go stack url "http://inHouse.domain.org/rev_stacks/grapple.rev"
By using the web server you avoid all the issues of mounting the server etc.
Now, disclaimer: most of my stacks are very light weight. After the
launcher launches the mainstack, if he needs more resource from the
server, then I'll run an apple script from inside the stack as needed
and mount the main server and then call the "heavy" resources using the
set the filename of player "Grapple Tutorial" to url
Note that even though we are not using a web browser, I'll maintain
various resources in the WWW area, even though we are not pulling them
via a web browser, but I *can* then if necessary, pass something off to
the web browser...
this works great, all the resources are modular, there is nothing on the
client station except a standalone with the above script. I can update
and swap out resources on the server and every one is always up to
date. It's all transparent to the users. They don't even realize that
the app they are using is actually being call runtime from the server.
