LLIST - A 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.
After having downloaded the source, `cd' into the source directory and
`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.
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. `$USERF' (see below) has to be specified for this to
llist can either be run as a standalone binary, as a cgi- or a fcgi
executable. The latter two options are enabled by letting the binary
file end with `.cgi' and `.fcgi' respectively.
Users can now submit links and comment on them. To deactivate
commenting, one has to change to `$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
- `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
