TWiki WebDAV Server

The idea of extending TWiki so that it is also a WebDAV server.

-- PeterThoeny - 23 Sep 2000

This idea is not as far fetched as you might think.

Subversion http://subversion.tigris.org/webdav-usage.html which is a much more powerful than CVS, and a candidate to be it's successor (it's Open source, and will be compatible with CVS, plus Collab.net which is developping it is now the official maintainer of CVS too. http://cvshome.org/).

So my point is, if TWiki is extended to use CVS for it's versionning TWikiWithCVS, it will be very easy to adapt to Subversion too, and hence have DAV for free

see also RCS


I don't think RCS is particularly relevant here - it doesn't have any client/server features and is most unlikely to add WebDAV support. TWiki is moving towards independence from the storage backend (see RcsLite), so RCS may not be used in the future.

I might not catch the point but: why should we make TWiki a WebDAV server? Most webservers today (Apache, IIS, ...) implements WebDAV. Why don't we just simply use the underlying server's functionality?

I'd like to see that you could edit the attached files with web_dav and still have the versioning available from within the twiki ui, so that for example, if i click on a M$-Word file, i already get word within my browser and i can edit the document, but instead of saving it locally and then going through the procedure of uploading it, just click on the "Save" button and have word upload it via web_dav directly to twiki... i don't know how you would enter the meta-data about the document when having uploaded it, but that must be solvable...

Windows XP allows you to save directly to an ftp location. If TWiki were to expose the attachment directories as ftp locations this could provide very neat integration.

A more advanced step would be to have TWiki watch for changes in those directories and do a check-in of the latest version.

Sounds like a plugin.

This might help: CPAN:HTTP::DAVServer
