View Full Version : Is it possible to load jsondata from a flat file w/out having a localhost server?

We are evaluating the Designer tool. So far, our team has express very positive and much interests. We are playing around and creating some prototypes as prove of concepts. I was wondering if it was possible to load json data read from a flat file, which gets fed into the jsonStore url?!

Is this possible without having to install and setup a localhost?

The JSON data must be served by some webserver. This could be on your localhost or could be on a remote server. You can set the Url Prefix by going into Edit Preferences for a particular project.

Sorry, this may sound a bit stupid from my side, but why can one not simply bypass the server and simply load from a flat file? Why must one go through the server for this operation?

I haven't tested it, but you might be able to use a file:// URI. However, as mentioned on a different thread, we will be adding the ability to load local data into stores in a future release.

You might want to look into using the BaseX extension. You can find it by searching the forums. This will be added as a capabity in ExtJS in a future version.

Please note that this can only be used and included in your exported xds html file.

@jarrednicholls, I've tried this out. Don't think it works (unless that file is stood up behind a server).
