Re: Who knows ANYTHING about broadway / HTML5 backend?

Fair enough. Good to see someone answer ;) The other question I posted to an app-devel list or something like that. I can deal with not being able to resize / maximise for now. What I'm not clear on is security. The way I assumed it would work was this:

- I write a simple login page that checks credentials in a DB
- If login is successful, an authentication key is generated, an instance of broadwayd is spawned on a new port, an instance of the app is spawned, and pointed ( somehow ) at the correct instance of broadwayd, and the key and port is returned to the client's browser

What happens from here on is less clear. The browser would have to keep passing this key back to broadwayd or the app? Can we use https or tunnel through ssh? Is anything like this implemented already?

From what I've seen with my limited testing, the default setup basically allows anyone to hit the IP / port that broadway is running on, and take over control of the app.

Any thoughts?

Hi Daniel,

I can only find one email to this list about this, which is about maximizing windows on Broadway. I'm sorry I didn't reply, but I was busy that day. I do remember investigating the question before getting poked to do something else instead.

Broadway is indeed not "officially" supported, in that it's not ready for production.

Hi all. Unfortunately, my last couple of posts to various gtk lists on this topic have had ZERO replies :(

This is giving me the impression that broadway is not officially supported, and possibly developed and maintained by a single person. Is this the case? Does anyone know who I'd contact who does know about broadway status?
