Many years ago I wrote a flask/bottle-like framework for gopher called Chasha (чаша means cup in Bulgarian, bottle -> cup) for use in assessments and such (because clients often wouldn’t filter Gopher in/out. I also experimented with using Gopher as a 9p alternative, since it’s relatively easily supported, and once you add auth and such, there’s not much of a difference. I actually wrote a long rambling post about it after experimenting with a JSONML + JSONRPC Webserver for delivering apps and such.
I’ve been collecting introductory gopher tutorials over on https://gopher.zone. I’ll have to contact the author of this one to see if I can pull it in.
The author is I think @alynpost, admin here and owner or at least employee of prgmr
Hi, James! I’m glad you like the article. :)
Thank you @raymii for highlighting me. James I would love to have this article on gopher.zone.
The author of the article is Paul Scott. I’ve previously spoken with him about publishing this article on gopher.zone. He would like to be able to extend and republish it in the future but verbally non-exclusivity was the only issue he raised with you publishing this article. I would like attribution on the article stating where it was originally published.
I’ve sent you an email to the address on your resume restating this and including the relevant parties. I’m glad you’re interested in incorporating this material.
The site is on github :)
