As the next assignment of COL290, the students have to build an online file management system “MyDropBox”. A server machine maintains the files of multiple users. The user should use a simple desktop application to login into the system. The content of user’s account should remain synced with the server.
So finally, this devlog is running with continuous integration using strider. Faced quite a lot of issues, mostly due to unix permissions (I’m from windows background :P) and buggy plugins for strider. I’m on CentOS 7 64bit with mongodb and node installed.
Coffee Script is my new favorite language. It has been quite a ride going from PHP to node.js to coffee.
I’ve had a bad time trying to access my server through IIT Delhi’s proxy servers. Luckily I found shellinabox through a LAMP turnkey linux distro and later realized that SSH on port 443 can be corkscrewed through the proxy. Btw, today is Indian Republic Day. Happy Republic Day!
