Ho Ho Ho IntraWeb in Lazarus!!!
« on: December 24, 2023, 05:20:40 am »
Ho Ho Ho Free Pascal developers!!!!

After a long refactoring, I'm here to announce:

IntraWeb for Lazarus is a few days away!

The same kind of projects and applications that you can build today with IntraWeb, using Delphi, you will be able to do using Lazarus. Same features, same codebase, the same power and performance.

I've been working on the compatibility issues and code base conversion for a long time. The more I worked with Lazarus, the more I liked it (I'll be honest with you I didn't like it much at first). But after you learn some shortcuts and some workarounds - especially when coming from Delphi, it is really pleasant to work with.

FPC developers did a remarkable job. So did the guys that wrote the LCL classes. There are things to improve, yes definitely, but I feel confident that FPC/Lazarus is more than capable to support complex Web applications built with IntraWeb.

I'll keep you all informed.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to all Pascal developers (and the poor guys who work with other languages too) !

Happy new year to you. Regards. Slz.

Hi @all,

Any news on that?
Intraweb could be interesting for new project - so I'd really be interested in the current status of the Lazarus port :-)

Intraweb is really easy to hack so bring it on!
bitrate is always calculated like this:sample rate * bitdepth * number of channels.

If I search for OP's name, I get to the Intraweb site, so it seems he is involved with Intraweb. Maybe inquire there?

It is not special, just old... You don't need it.

Is it no longer suitable for anything? I'm asking because I once (in Delphi) used this library for my own needs.

Yes, I was a bit too harsh. It is still very suitable for Intra!-web appcications, but it is not very suitable for internet applications because of its inherent vulnerabilities that nobody has fixed yet.
So: it is a welcome port, but don't use it outside of a local network.

The latter can of course be mitigated by using a more modern front-end.
I also used it a lot in the past, but I also hacked it - legally, CEH - a lot in the past..
CVE-2017-17527
CVE-2007-0533

to name a few.
It is also very easy to force access violations at runtime in its codebase.
Which is basically also a means of getting control.
I won't get into much further detail, but a web application using Intraweb can be hacked in minutes, not months or years, and it is quite easy to detect if a web application has been written with Intraweb.

and <sigh> since my reports are not fixed properly since 2007, I would not use it.
Just google on the CVE's
What is more worrying is that NIST still has not approved a supposed fix from my - our - report in 2007. They are still waiting for it.....
AtoZ is responsible for a fix, not me, we simply reported it in mintute detail.
Both the issues I was involved in are NOT fixed..
