Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-290) Bigtop installation wiki page needs improvements
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 17:58:41 GMT


bikramjit ganguly commented on BIGTOP-290:

HI Roman,
On the specific issue of making the downloads page automatically show the closest mirror,
i can take a shot.
We could have a basic form on the home page, that either lets the browser obtain a location
fix or alternatively lets them input a location ('san jose, ca'). We would still need the
server side to have an in memory-map that translates coordinates to mirror-urls, and the response
from the server can be JSON, so that the front end form can do an ajax.
Please advise if this is feasible. if the server side is java, i can take a shot at both server
side and front-end fixes. if the server side is something else, i can either pick it up, or
someone else can provide me an api that will either take a coordinate pair or a location-string,
and return a JSON object.

thanks, bikram
