Let me add one more question. (two now ^^)

As I said, I am doing this (using Orbiter's html and jquery library in Orbit App) because I want to write a jquery embedded html and the jquery contains interaction with a lua function on server side.

This was easy with Orbiter because it has convenient jquery lua library. But with Orbit, I don't know how. Especially with htmlification method doesn't seemed to be easy to mix jquery in html.

Orbit Page looked proper to do my task.

#1. Is there any known method to embed jquery in html using and without using orbit pages in orbit apps (other than my approach above)?
#2. Is there any good material which describes how to write orbit pages (Not the one in orbit homepage I've read it already)

Thank you very much

Hi Steve Donovan and people on lua mailing list,

I've got a question about using 'orbiter jquery library' in 'orbit app'.
I am now implementing a web site for embedded system now using of orbit.
From my orbit app, I import jquery library like below.

local jq = require 'orbiter.libs.jquery'

But this inclusion produces error messages on a browser screen like below. (I invoked my web-site using 'wsapi --op')

(lua install prefix)/share/lua/5.1/wsapi/ringer.lua:116: (lua install prefix)/share/lua/5.1/orbiter/bridge.lua:26: attempt to index upvalue 'app' (a nil value)

FYI, let me copy the content of 'bridge.lua' below.

  1 -- Orbiter, a personal web application framework
  2 -- orbiter.orbit acts as a bridge for registering static dispatches
  3 -- that works with both Orbiter and Orbit
  5 local _M = {}
  7 local app
  9 function
 10     app = app_
 11 end
 13 function _M.dispatch_static(...)
 14     -- remember to strip off the starting @
 15     local path = debug.getinfo(2, "S").source:sub(2):gsub('\\','/')
 16     if path:find '/' then
 17         path = path:gsub('/[%w_]+%.lua$','')
 18     else -- invoked just as script name
 19         path = '.'
 20     end
 21     if orbit then
 22         local function static_handler(web)
 23             local fpath = path..web.path_info
 24             return app:serve_static(web,fpath)
 25         end
 26         app:dispatch_get(static_handler,...)    -------> This is the it.
 27         return app
 28     else
 29         local obj = require 'orbiter'. new()
 30         obj.root = path
 31         obj:dispatch_static(...)
 32         return obj
 33     end
 34 end
 36 return _M

I placed orbiter under the place shown below.

(lua install prefix)/share/lua/5.1/orbiter

#1. Is using 'orbiter jquery library' in making 'orbit web site' impossible?
#2. If it is impossible, is there any other jquery lua library I can use in making orbit web site?

Thank you very much in advance.
