Setup your local macOS X web server #apache #macos #macosx #webserver #localhost #webdevelopment

 Permalink
I've put together a page where I describe how you can setup a web development environment with two or more Apple Macs.

If you are a web developer working on Apple Macs, you sure do want to use the macOS X built-in web server, Apache, on all your Macs. And you want to be able to access your Sites folder, local web documents folder and your other Mac via HTTP.

I'll describe how to set it up on macOS High Sierra (10.13.5). If you're on a previous version of macOS X, not to worry, the steps to take are practically identical. Read on ...

The Blogspot Stack 1.1.4 for Stacks with RapidWeaver

 Permalink


Version 1.1.4 is out with the following changes:
Version 1.1.4
Released on 27 feb 2018.
  • Known issues with deprecated, removed and changed PHP calls from PHP v5.4 through v7.1 : fixed
  • Some other bugs fixed.
  • Added a checkbox 'Display errors on', which shows possible PHP warnings. Use it on your local machine and on your live site and then please report any warnings and errors you see (Deprecated: , Warning:, Notice:, Fatal error:), to me, with screen-shots. Then switch it of again.
  • Added YEAR-only option to archives. When selected, archive-links are shown as 1 link per year, and when 'Show archive count' is checked, with the number of posts per year.
  • Removed 'Show author' checkbox - you can swicth it on or off in the 'Alternate ordering'-settings.
  • Added the option to leave out blogpost-sections inside 'Alternate ordering'. If you don't want a certain section in your blogposts, check 'Alternate ordering' and choose the 'blank' option for that section.
  • Added the RSS feed link as a stack. Instead of being always on top of the blog, you can now place it anywhere you prefer, or use this code snippet: <?php renderRSSlink(); ?>
  • Included FontAwesome via Stacks API.
  • Cosmetic changes.
  • If you purchased this stack, you can re-download the installer via your Paddle account.
    If not, you can read more about it here .

    The Blogspot Stack for Stacks with RapidWeaver

     Permalink


    As a replacement for the old RapidBlog from Loghound , I created a replacement, named Blogspot.

    Although RapidBlog was a page-plugin for Realmac's RapidWeaver , my replacement is a stack, for use with YourHead's Stacks-plugin .

    Read all about it here

    The advantage now, is that:
    • You don't have to add new posts inside RapidWeaver. Blogger is much better for that purpose.
    • It's mobile-friendly
    • By using Stacks, you can place a Blogger-blog anywhere in the content-area of the page.
    • It's fast
    • No usernames and passwords required to login to Blogger.
    • Blogspot.stack displays any public accessible Blogspot-domain.

    Copy DOM content to the clipboard with pure Javascript

     Permalink
    Of all the tips on the internet on how to copy data from a DOM element to the clipboard, I compiled my own function(s).

    The examples below are to copy the 'href'-part of  a link to an RSS feed to the clipboard.

    1. By class name, use the first found element
    function copyToClipboardCN(element, attr) {
    x = document.getElementsByClassName(element);
    if(x !== undefined && x !== null && x[0] !== undefined) {
    var textarea = document.createElement("textarea");
    document.body.appendChild(textarea);
    textarea.value = x[0][attr];
    textarea.select();
    var status = document.execCommand('copy');
    textarea.remove();
    }
    }

    2. By id
    function copyToClipboardID(element, attr) {
    x = document.getElementById(element);
    if(x !== undefined && x !== null) {
    var textarea = document.createElement("textarea");
    document.body.appendChild(textarea);
    textarea.value = x[attr];
    textarea.select();
    var status = document.execCommand('copy');
    textarea.remove();
    }
    }

    RSS feed link example with a class and an ID, using FontAwesome icons :

    <a class="blog-rss-link" href="https://macvos.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default" rel="alternate" target="_blank" title="RSS Feed" type="application/rss+xml"><i class="fa fa-rss"> RSS Feed <i class="fa fa-copy" onclick="copyToClipboardCN('blog-rss-link', 'href')" style="cursor: pointer;" title="Copy RSS link to clipboard">

    <a id="blog-rss-link" href="https://macvos.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default" rel="alternate" target="_blank" title="RSS Feed" type="application/rss+xml"><i class="fa fa-rss"> RSS Feed <i class="fa fa-copy" onclick="copyToClipboardID('blog-rss-link', 'href')" style="cursor: pointer;" title="Copy RSS link to clipboard">

    I have thought about combining the two functions into one, but i find that dangerous. In case you don't, here it is:
    function copyToClipboard(element, attr) {
    var x = document.getElementById(element);
    if(x === undefined || x === null) {
    x = document.getElementsByClassName(element);
    if(x !== undefined && x !== null && x[0] !== undefined) {
    x = x[0];
    }
    else {
    x = undefined;
    }
    }
    if(x !== undefined) {
    var textarea = document.createElement("textarea");
    document.body.appendChild(textarea);
    textarea.value = x[attr];
    textarea.select();
    var status = document.execCommand('copy');
    textarea.remove();
    }
    }

    [Repair] MySQL Upgrade on Mac OS X

     Permalink
    Some time ago I did a MySQL upgrade without thinking ... that was not funny. So I retraced what I did to get the new version up and running and wrote it down as a sequence of steps to follow, when I need to upgrade to the next higher version.

    I published these steps on the page [Repair] MySQL Upgrade (Mac OS X) , so they might be of help to you too.

    Add or Subtract Business Days in Javascript, PHP and Lasso

     Permalink
    I was lately looking for a working version of a function to add and/or subtract business days. The scripts and code I found via Google somehow did not produce the correct results all the time - and I do not mean the loops that simply add a day and check for weekends. Read more . . .

    Restrict Lasso AJAX-file calls to the intended web page

     Permalink
    Suppose you have a nice setup where a page interacts with the server via AJAX-calls and executes a Lasso file on the server to get some data. You don't want this file to be called directly via the URL-bar in a web browser, or via other self-made web pages by others who try to access it via a copy of your page. Anybody can see which AJAX-files your page is calling, so for some it is always a challenge to execute them outside the normal webpage to see what data will come up. Might be of interest! So you want to prevent that, somehow.

    There is a Lasso-tag called referrer_url, which returns a string containing the URL that requested your AJAX-page. If you look into this string for a domain name or a path that only you have, you can block execution if the requestor is not coming from your server. When a page is called directly in the browser, the referrer_url is always an empty string. Which is logical, since the page was not referred to by another page.

    Suppose I have a page mypage.html with a jQuery auto-complete implementation in it. This auto-complete can of course be used by more than one page and you do not want people to try it out in other ways.

    ...
    ...
    <input type="text" id="inp1" size="25"><span id="desc1"></span>
    ...
    ...
    <script>
    $(document).ready(function() {
       $("#inp1").autocomplete({minLength:2, source: "ajax.lasso?p1=a&p2=b", select: function(e,u) { $("#inp1").val(u.item.value); $("#desc1").html((u.item.label).replace("(" + u.item.value + ")", "")); return false; } });
    });
    </script>


    Simple protection:
    [
    if (referrer_url >> '/mypage.html' || referrer_url >> '/myotherpage.html');
    ...
    ...
    /if;
    ]


    Better protection:
    [
    if (string(referrer_url)->beginswith('http://my.domain.com/') &&
       (referrer_url >> '/mypage.html' || referrer_url >> '/myotherpage.html'));
    ...
    ...
    /if;
    ]


    So this gives you some protection from just try something-users. Add a login-system, which restricts the number of users that might want to hack your pages - you can trace their actions on your site. In that case, add a check if the user is logged in. You must execute your complete login-sequence in your AJAX-pages too, as with 'normal' pages, since the xhttprequest is a normal HTTP request and thus the browser sends the same HTTP-headers and cookies, etc.. to your AJAX-page.

    More protection:
    [
    if (referrer_url >> '/mypage.html' || referrer_url >> '/myotherpage.html');
       var('loggedIn = false');

       include('checkuser.lasso');

       if($loggedIn);
          ...
          ...
       /if;
    /if;
    ]


    Even better protection:
    [
    if (string(referrer_url)->beginswith('http://my.domain.com/') &&
       (referrer_url >> '/mypage.html' || referrer_url >> '/myotherpage.html'));
       var('loggedIn = false');

       include('checkuser.lasso');

       if($loggedIn);
          ...
          ...
       /if;
    /if;
    ]


    But, as with everything web-related, nothing can be trusted.
