The startup of CGIKit is carried out by startup-program as cgi program. The startup-program is different from components. Normally, it is not neccessary to require components directly in startup-program.
The startup-program does three things.
<番号リスト-1->Creates a CKApplication object.番号リスト-1->
CKApplication is the central class in CGIKit. This class has the parameters, for example, CGI program's path, MainPage and component path. You can create a CKApplication object by calling CKApplication.new simply.
app = CKApplication.new
CKApplication has many attributes. Here, two of them are introduced. The detail is explained in CKApplication's RDoc document.
||Component name which CGIKit shows.|
||Component name which CGIKit shows if target is not set. The default value is "
Finally, you call CKApplication#run. By this method, CKApplication loads a component and initializes it.
When CKApplication#run is called, CKApplication decides what component is shown. CKApplication has two ways to decide the name of the top-level component to be shown. One way is CKApplication#element_id and another is query data. If CKApplication#element_id is set as CKElementID object in startup-program, CKApplication loads the component whose name is CKApplication#element_id. If CKApplication#element_id is not set, CKApplication tries to decide the component's name from query data. For example, when a client accesses "
http://localhost/hello.cgi?element_id=FooBar" CKApplication loads
FooBarcomponent. If both of ways fails, CKApplication load the component specified by CKApplication#main.
This is one of the simplest startup-program.
#!/usr/local/bin/ruby require 'cgikit' app = CKApplication.new app.run
