MorphIDE for Amber

When you play with Amber (the Smalltalk on top of JavaScript) you typically need to set up a webdav with Apache. Wouldnt it be better to directly connect this with a server Smalltalk serving the files?

Now there is a new project on Squeaksource3 available that provides a static file HTTP server. It serves the Javascript files that make up the Amber IDE. MorphIDE accepts HTTP PUTs from the Amber IDE, whereupon it will (over)write the .js and .st files being PUT to filesystem. It will also regenerate the MorphIDE HTML file to load the new code that you've written in Amber.
