The Future!

Post by Roberto Lopez »

Hi All,

Some weeks ago, we discussed here about the Harbour future.

Considering that WindowsAPI-based desktop apps development, is diminishing in favor other platforms (specially web-based technologies) this is a really important topic for us.

"mod_harbour" is a new, great alternative for those Harbour programmers considering developing for the web.

Moreover (as I've noted) it lacked of an easy-to-write GUI, to be 'inline' with the xBase spirit and then, succeed on the web, as xBase do it in the DOS-era.

Now, there is GREAT NEWS from Antonio Linares: A visual form designer for mod_harbour is in development!

This is the thread on Harbour users group:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic ... 65YieWtJ9k

The future for Harbour developers has arrived!
Regards/Saludos,

Roberto

Hello Roberto, I'm waiting for the source code of "IDE", and this is fantastic we will be able to create client / server web applications and still interact with our windows applications.

For the time being I see no end in WindowsAPI-based desktop apps development (POS, hospitals, doctors, banking, insurances...)
Most secure way is still desktop apps, at least in Belgium.

Visit link for more info
https://github.com/FiveTechSoft/mod_harbour
https://fivetechsoft.github.io/mod_harbour/

Quick setup
Download link for Apache
http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

copy mod_harbour.so into c:\Apache24\modules\

copy libharbour.dll into c:\Apache24\htdocs\

Add these into c:\Apache24\conf\httpd.conf

LoadModule harbour_module modules/mod_harbour.so

<FilesMatch "\.(prg|hrb)$">
SetHandler harbour
</FilesMatch>
Start c:\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe

For easy of testing, create a folder "c:\Apache24\htdocs\modharbour_samples" and copy all mod_harbour samples *.prg there

From your web browser go to: localhost/modharbour_samples
You have not mentioned your OS, however following link for Win-32
you will find installation info
https://github.com/FiveTechSoft/mod_har ... er/windows

Another development in progress is mod_harbour + fastCGI
mod_harbour + fastCGI offer the fastest mod_harbour performance

mod_harbour acts as a server, always running, interacting with fastCGI

requests per seconds reach values around 95 or even higher. You can test it this way from Windows:

c:\Apache24\bin\ab.exe -n 100 -c 20 localhost/modharbour_samples/test.prg
XAMPP stands for Cross-Platform (X), Apache (A), MariaDB (M), PHP (P) and Perl (P). It is a simple, lightweight Apache distribution that makes it extremely easy for developers to create a local web server for testing and deployment purposes.
