			   LLIST - LINK LIST

llist is a simple and stupid HN/lobste.rs clone, without voting, written
in [Golang]. It's published under a 2-clause BSD, see LICENSE.

1 Setup
=======

  After having downloaded the source, `cd' into the source directory and
  run
  ,----
  | go get
  | go build
  `----

  `go get' will download the [Go SQL driver for Sqlite] and the [Go
  Libravatar library]. After `go build' is run, a `llist' binary will
  appear in the working directory.

1.1 User file
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  The user file lists all users, their hashed password, their email
  address and a short description. Each entry is in it's own line, and
  each section is separated by semicolons (`:'). The hashed password is
  the result of applying sha256 to a string containing the username, a
  semicolon and the password (eg. `john:sEkr3t').

  To easily add new entires to the user file, use the `add_user.sh'
  shell script. `$USERF' (see below) has to be specified for this to
  work.


2 Use
=====

  llist can either be run as a standalone binary, as a cgi- or a fcgi
  executable. The latter two options are enabled by letting the binary
  file end with `.cgi' and `.fcgi' respectively.

  Users can now submit links and comment on them. To deactivate
  commenting, one has to change to `$users' variable from `true'
  (default) to `false' in `list.gtml'.

  It is generally recommended to tweak the templates to fit the specific
  needs of the situation, either in regards to styling or template
  variables.


2.1 Environmental variables
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  `PORT': Specified port to listen on when run as a standalone
          binary. Will fail if empty.
  `GTML': Sets template directory, defaults to `./gtml/'.
  `USERF': Tells llist where to look for user file, defaults to
           `/etc/llist_users'.
