Using arc on production system
2 points by jsgrahamus 1999 days ago | 7 comments
It seems to me that arc could profitably be used on a production system. Does anyone have experience doing such? Has it proven itself?

Also I would be interested in using it with a database. I seem to remember that there have been posts talking about doing such. Any URL's?

Thanks, Steve

I built a full-time website with it for a year (temporarily down). But it didn't use a database, just flat files like HN.

I'm wondering about something which might have high document storage requirements. I guess it would have to be web-based (don't know how exactly one would integrate arc with another GUI environment).

I know I've seen comments here about integrating it with a db. Anyone remember the article # or URL?

Thanks, Steve

Here are some options for you:

Option 1. Use Fleetdb.

http://fleetdb.org/. Here's some rudimentary code to make this work with anarki: http://blackstag.com/fleetdb-client.arc

Option 2. Use any database that supports an HTTP interface.

You can use the anarki http library here: https://github.com/nex3/arc/blob/master/lib/http.arc along with something like Riak or Couchdb, etc.

Option 3. MySql over HTTP:

Option 4. Get the FFI working to access MySql and other more traditional database systems.

Some people had been working on the FFI interface, but so far I've yet to see anything that works. You can read my noob entry about this here: http://arclanguage.com/item?id=10839 and there were recent attempts by others as well.

It's back up but quite slow and flaky because it has a lot less RAM now: http://readwarp.com.
