Background: COIL is a configuration system for Twisted, allowing you to
manage and configure your server via the web, developed by glyph. To test it
$ mktap coil
$ twistd -n -f coil.tap
And point your browser at http://localhost:9080
In CVS, the coil system has been refactored, and now resides in
twisted.coil. I feel that at this point it is now usable for configuring
real apps. Real world use will help us find missing requirements and find
issues and bugs. Examples of how to use it can be found in twisted.coil.plugins.
Things that should really be coiled include cred, to the point that you can
use coil to administrate users for manhole. t.mail is another candidate, and
of course any servers based on twisted.
If you are not using CVS Twisted, do not use coil - the interfaces have all
been changed. You can still play around with it however, since it does work
in the released code as well.
