Create, modify, debug cgi files like log.dat


Out of curiosity: how do you create and debug any cgi files that make up the WebIF of IPFire?

Just enter the plain code and see if it runs OK in WebIF, or is there sbdy. who uses an IDE for that task?

For example, I’ve added some lines in log.dat in Notepadd++ and uploaded the file to IPFire again, opening the WebIF and see if my modifications runs well.

While I can image this is perfectly well for single line changes it’s not for new developments or some big modifications in source code.
