This is the first part in a series, the length of which is unknown. Since I have decided to resume working on AllTray again, it’s also become clear that in order to modernize it, I need to learn Wayland. It has also become clear, just in my cursory research and what I already know, that the methods that AllTray uses under X11 simply won’t work with Wayland.
The primary point of these posts is to provide personal reference material, as well as help to solidify what I’m learning. Hopefully it’s also useful to you.
This is a follow-up to my Minimal C++ article. It might be helpful to read that article first, in order to understand the context better.
Here, I present a relatively refined—and featherweight—method for using C++ in “micro” environments: think 16- or 32-bit microcontrollers with memory on the order of 64–256 KiB of storage, usually split between the program and runtime memory (RAM).
There are several popular choices when it comes to which protocol to use for Web service backend software. In this post, I take a look at the available options and—spoiler alert—come to the conclusion that HTTP is the winner. Yes, HTTP. The one and same protocol used to actually communicate with the Web browser, should also be the one used to communicate between the Web server and the application itself.
