OpenWrt GUI: hosts editor
I didn’t have a lot of time this weekend. So I decided to implement the simplest part of upcoming OpenWrt GUI (webui) — hosts editor. It is a perfect candidate to write something in 15 minutes or less — it has almost no "business" logic in it: read/edit/verify/write cycle. The hardest part was to learn how to upload dynamically generated files without writing them to disk first.
I am extremely pleased with
dojo.io.bind(), which is a Swiss-army knife of AJAX programming. It makes practically any types of server callbacks possible! I hope it would be even better with support of alternative encoding and dynamic file uploads. I’ll submit a patch to Dojo as soon as I’ll find another free time slot in my schedule.
