I'm working on a web-based interface for bash scripts used to rip DVDs and CDs. The goal is to package it as an app for the Amahi
project. The bash scripts and web server are running on the same box.
I've run into a tough technical hurdle - I need bash to push a popup dialog box to open in the web page interface with <OK> <CANCEL> buttons that get returned to the script.
My web coding kung-fu is not up to the challenge. Mootools looks promising but I don't know how to implement it.
I've tried writing a loop checker in php but it just locks the page. Any suggestions?
