Codepad. Run code snippets online.

with 2 comments

Just discovered an online tool that allows me to run code snippets in many languages such as php, python, ruby, haskell, lua and many else. (See all http://codepad.org). Sure you can use irb for ruby, etc, provide you’ve install them on your box.

The results of code run are also available via a URL (Check out my ruby snippet. )

Well if someone doubts your code and is lazy to go over your desk when you argue that it works on your machine(yeah, it “always works” locally). Just send them that code result URL !

Cherokee. Faster than Apache / Lighttpd ?

with 5 comments

Seems so, based on their benchmark.

But then again, it’s their own benchmark.

Some seemingly neutral ones:

- Cherokee Vs Lighttpd from riklaunim

- Cherokee Vs Nginx from riklaunim

Battle of the Property Search Engines – PropertyGuru vs iProperty

User Friendliness – Age of Web 2.0

Seems that it’s harder to choose the districts from iProperty.com.sg as users have to reference the map to know the district they are interested in. Propertyguru.com.sg does a better job at that.

Do you prefer to remember numbers or words? Ala, http://72.14.207.104/ or http://google.com ?

PropertyGuru.com.sg 1 : iProperty.com.sg 0

Ajax App Server? – AjaxToaster

with one comment

AjaxToaster is an Ajax application server which makes it easy to create RESTful web services for rich web client applications. It runs under any of the main Java servlet containers (tomcat/glassfish/websphere/jboss/jetty)”

Still in RC though. I haven’t managed to take a closer look, but the request/update urls doesn’t look too restful to me.

http://localhost:8080/toaster?service=recipe/RetrieveAll&returnjson
http://localhost:8080/toaster?service=meetings/UpdateMeetingRoom&inputjson={"Room":[{"RoomCode":"AZALEA","RoomName":"The Azalea Room"}

Hmm, not too sure anyone had a go at this project.
