New Tool: krpano Testing Server

Hi,

there is a new krpano tool out - the krpano Testing Server!

The krpano Testing Server should help when testing Flash or HTML5 locally / offline.
When using local files (this means files with file:// paths), then there several Flashplayer and browser related (security-)restrictions that prevent the full working.

Some of these local-usage restrictions:
  • Flashplayer
    • No Javascript interface.
    • No correct mouse-wheel handling in many cases.
    • No openurl() action.
    • No Bing / Google maps.
  • HTML5
    • No xml file loading in Chrome and IE10.

The krpano Testing Server is a small and simple localhost server. It allows accessing the files via (http://) server addresses and so to bypass these local restrictions. The tool serves only static files - that means there is no support for server-side scripting like PHP.

Usage

To use it, just start it, select a folder and then access the folder via the server-address from any computer or device in the local network. And to stop the server, simply close the tool.

Features

  • Easy to use:
    • Just select a local folder and ready.
    • Or simply drag and drop local folders or html files.
    • Automatic restart with the previously selected local folder.
    • Can run minimized-to-tray in background (Windows-only).
  • Download-speed simulation for testing slower Internet-connections (with several typical presets).
  • Optionally send No-Caching headers to avoid browser-side caching. This can be very helpfully during testing when constantly changing some files.
  • Server requests logging.
  • Nice looking and mobile/tablet-friendly directory listing.

Download

The krpano Testing Server is available for Windows and Mac as separate download here:
krpano Testing Server - Download

It will be also included in the download packages of the next krpano versions.

Best regards,
Klaus

Hi klaus,

Krpano 1.16.2
Mac osx the latest.
I can't see any reason why yes or no.
I use my own structure all the time, sort of, and some tours give the error.

Structure with sub directories

Index.html
Code/actions.xml. Etc
Viewer/virtualtuur.swf and js
Skin/ buttons.png etc
Plugins/ textfield.swf etc.

I can send you one that gives an error..?

Hi,

have you set some domain limitations?
If yes - they will not work with the ip address domain of course.

Best regards,
Klaus
