I won’t spend lot’s of lines here, trying to explaining how to make all this possible, cause there is nice post on helma-ng wiki describing all the necessary steps. Unfortunately there are some restrictions on app engine side preventing access to the file system, and as the default persistence module in helma is implemented using filestore it was a problem. Well not anymore as there is early implementation of persistence module based on app engine data store.
So… back to me, as you might guess I have started experimenting :) Have not done much there yet, as I have dedicated most of my free time to bespin port. But still there’s a link to check out. geekCloud is going to be my new home!!! but for now it’s just a way how my future pet might look like :) Honestly it’s nothing more then a template generation, with a broken links inside. Page is ported from my old but never finished web site. (Don’t tell anybody but I was implementing it using php :) I mentioned template generation, so I will add some more detail, I don’t use helma build-in template engine. Instead I have decided to use alternative extensible template engine seethrough_js written by Massimiliano Mirra. I’m going to push helma-ng webapp to github as soon as I will get something meaningful and I promise it won’t be yet another CMS!!
