Local Server or Remote Server
Will Sencha Architect work on a remote server, if there is no local server installed?
You can certainly publish to a remote server via a mapped drive/mounted end point.
OK - but can I have JSON data loaded from a php file that is at a remote server?
I am running windows 7 without IIS.
Yes. Typically the way this would be setup.
Go to your Project Settings and set your url prefix to where the project lives on the remote server.
Can you map a drive to your server? There are 2 workflows that work pretty well for our users.
The first is to have your Architect project actually reside on the remote server through the mapped drive. For example, Z:\somelocation\ you then wouldn't have to worry about deploying at all.
The other workflow is to just deploy to that location each time you want.
I can't find a way to give an FTP site a drive letter in Windows 7, which seems to be required by Sencha Architect 2.
Is there a utility that will act as a work around?
Never worked with one in particular but googling "windows mount ftp drive" came up with quite a few results.
