Giving AppHarbor a go

To demo my (poor) attempt at WebGL, I decided to host it on AppHarbor.  This is the first time that I have used this service, so I was initially confused when my html files were not made available.  A little bt of reading and I discovered that AppHarbor will deploy and host the Web Application within the Solution file it finds, so the fact that my html files were ‘loose’ within my git repository meant that they did not exist as far as the service was concerned.

A small change was made; the html files added to the solution and a dummy controller added to send requests by default to the index.html file, a commit and a push later and the files were hosted – nice!  Take a look at a spinning cube displaying album images from the 7digital public api 🙂 .  For querystring options refer to the GitHub repository.
