Hi there -

Apache configuration turned out to be painful for non-IT-admin users
that just want to try Lively (including myself).

There is a possibility that it's easier to write a lean Node.js server
that could provide the full Lively experience.
After some experiments a few months ago, I now took some time to to
research and put together an early prototype:


At this point, I'd like to invite Node.js-savvy users to give it a try.

What does work:
- delivering Lively xthml pages
- deleting files
- simple proxy for WebResource

What does not work yet:
- post/put for files (haven't looked into the problem)
- versioning (how do we want to do this)

I'll keep you posted.
