Mini editor (Part 6)

This is part six of a seven part series on how to make a WYSIWYG structure editor using javascript, jquery, erlang and couchDB.

Storing the results forever

In javascript you cannot store anything locally (apart from cookies). So to store the results of editing we need a backend-server that can store the results.

To implement this I have made a simple back-end web server in Erlang, the code can be found at git://github.com/joearms/contentEditableDemo.git

If you are running a live system you should be able to click on the links in the sidebar to fetch a bog entry than use the store button to save the blog. If you are not serving this from an Erlang server then the save operation will fail.
