[jdev] Simple JavaScript XMPP client example

Yes, file:// and same origin policy is really a  PITA and caused a lot of gray hair so far.

My preferred toolbox for this:
Node: nws (npm install –g nws ) : nws –o will also spawn a browser
Python: python –m SimpleHttpServer
Or (preferred) use an html editor with live preview, such as brackets – spawns up a server and live-linked browser with a mouseclick.

I didn’t know of tape, but seems useful as well.

Yep, I meant file:///<file:///\\>. Just saw tape as well, will use that for now! Thanks

Ok, so I have experimented a bit more, and as Steven said, if I host the code on a server, the code works, but if I just access it locally, the code does not work. I still don't quite understand why. If I access the code locally from my machine, and then try to connect to a server on the web, the domain where the code is hosted (my local machine) and the server domain are different, but this is also the case if I host the code on a server and try to connect to a server in another domain, which does work. So I don't quite understand what is the problem then when I access the code locally

By "locally", do you mean file://<file:///\\>? I reckon the browser folk broke file:// completely for almost anything useful.

Jack Moffit wrote a thing called Tape years back to handle problems like this - a microserver for development you can run quickly out of any directory. There's Node based stuff for this kind of thing too.
