Requires TclOO. Run tclsh8.5 server.tcl and open your browser to http://localhost:9001
I've recently started putting together a Tk-over-jQuery routine I'm calling web Tk (wtk). The idea is having full Tcl running on a server, with a Tk-like layer that sends commands to code running in a browser.
For those of you who remember it, this is conceptually similar to ProxyTk (see http://www.markroseman.com/pubs/proxytk.pdf).
An important thing is that its not tied into any particular web server or other communication channel; in fact, it just assumes there is a communication channel of some sort. This might be an AJAX connection pair, WebSockets, socket.io, etc. Or it might not even be a remote communication. You could well have a desktop/iPad app whose UI is a web view, and the "communication" between "server" and "client" might be just a procedure call.
It's still at what I'd consider the proof of concept stage, but it feels very promising.
Starting the wtk app server:
Utilizing netbin64 which contain all the dependencies, start the wtk server with the command:
or if you have all the dependencies you can use a standard tclsh install by running:
Running the demo in a browser:
In a web browser, use a url corresponding to the demo app:
