How to run MovableType with Plack B!


typester


Hello, this is typester. I'm now creating kamakura.pm website with MTOS, but I'm using nginx as web server that doesn't support CGI. But no worry about that. Now we have Plack!

This article shows you how to setup MovableType with Plack. Let's get started.

Requirements

  • Plack 0.9952+
  • Starlet or Starman
  • MovableType or MTOS (MTOS-5.04, I confirmed)

At first, make sure your Plack version is higher than 0.9952, otherwise some MT scripts will cause pipe dead lock.

Write mt.psgi

Then write psgi script like following:

#!/usr/bin/env perl

use strict;
use warnings;
use File::Basename;

use Plack::Builder;
use Plack::App::URLMap;
use Plack::App::WrapCGI;
use Plack::App::Directory;

my $basedir = dirname(__FILE__);

my $map = Plack::App::URLMap->new;
$map->map('/mt-static', Plack::App::Directory->new({ root => "$basedir/mt-static" }));

my @scripts = qw(
    mt.cgi
    mt-atom.cgi
    mt-upgrade.cgi
    mt-add-notify.cgi
    mt-check.cgi
    mt-comments.cgi
    mt-feed.cgi
    mt-tb.cgi
    mt-xmlrpc.cgi
    mt-wizard.cgi
);

for my $script (@scripts) {
    $map->map("/${script}", Plack::App::WrapCGI->new( script => "$basedir/${script}", execute => 1 )->to_app);
}

my $app = $map->to_app;

Save this psgi file as mt.psgi to same directory for mt.cgi.

UPDATE

@fujiwara wrote more simple .psgi script using Plack::App::CGIBin.

Run it!

$ plackup -s Starlet -a mt.psgi

(or "-s Starman")

Then you can access MT setup wizard at http://127.0.0.1:5000/mt.cgi !

More clean URLs

I dislike URLs contains .cgi like "mt.cgi" or "mt-comments.cgi". Let's make more clean URL!

Fix mt.psgi like following:

#!/usr/bin/env perl

use strict;
use warnings;
use File::Basename;

use Plack::Builder;
use Plack::App::URLMap;
use Plack::App::WrapCGI;
use Plack::App::Directory;

my $basedir = dirname(__FILE__);

my $map = Plack::App::URLMap->new;
$map->map('/mt-static', Plack::App::Directory->new({ root => "$basedir/mt-static" }));

my %apps = (
    app        => 'mt.cgi',
    atom       => 'mt-atom.cgi',
    upgrade    => 'mt-upgrade.cgi',
    'add-notify' => 'mt-add-notify.cgi',
    check      => 'mt-check.cgi',
    comments   => 'mt-comments.cgi',
    feed       => 'mt-feed.cgi',
    search     => 'mt-search.cgi',
    tb         => 'mt-tb.cgi',
    xmlrpc     => 'mt-xmlrpc.cgi',
    wizard     => 'mt-wizard.cgi',
);

while (my ($path, $script) = each %apps) {
    $map->map("/mt/${path}", Plack::App::WrapCGI->new( script => "$basedir/${script}", execute => 1 )->to_app);
}

my $app = $map->to_app;

And also add following configs to mt-config.cgi:

ActivityFeedScript feed
AdminScript app
AtomScript atom
CheckScript check
CommentScript comments
NotifyScript add-notify
SearchScript search
TrackbackScript tb
UpgradeScript upgrade
XMLRPCScript xmlrpc

Then you can access http://127.0.0.1/mt/app instead of http://127.0.0.1/mt.cgi .

That's it!

Thanks for reading.
