Exyus is an HTTP/REST engine written for the Windows/ASP.NET platform. this blog lists code changes and other important updates to the code base.


installed cmd applet on my server

more fun w/ exyus today.

last night i built a simple command-line app (tasklist-cmd that can "talk" to the TaskList server. that was fun. a simple desktop app that does clean HTTP work (including handling headers for etags, cache-control, user-agent, etc.) without a lot of fuss and bother. nice. you can download the source and a windows executable from the exyus code site.

today i installed this applet on a server as a tool for clearing out old tasks from the demo site as well as poking some "fun" tasks in myself. it was also really easy. after copying the exe (and dlls) to the server, i whipped up the following set-task.cmd file:

@echo off

tasklist-cmd -clear
tasklist-cmd -add "read tutorials" 1
tasklist-cmd -add "download exyus"
tasklist-cmd -add "check out newsgroup" 1
tasklist-cmd -add "start writing my own cool apps!"
schedule it up and we're cookin'!
