15:09 goehle I would use the xmlrpc pathway
15:09 goehle checkout the develop branch
15:09 goehle and look in webwork2/clients
15:10 goehle in particular create a non dist version of Test.html with your server specific infomration in it
15:10 goehle that is an example of how you can render a problem using just an html request with some parameters
15:10 goehle poke hotdogs
16:21 hotdogs hmm, I'll look at it
16:55 goehle http://michaelgage.blogspot.com/2015/06/whether-writing-full-text-book-or-just.html
16:56 goehle you can also look at the library browser and the code it uses to "re-randomize" a problem
16:56 goehle that uses an ajax call to get a rendered version of the problem via javascript
17:11 hotdogs I'm trying to render them without a webserver
17:12 hotdogs so I can render all the problems in the library individually and gather any warning output from them (this might remind you of a recent github issue :) )
17:14 goehle ah
17:14 goehle there are scripts in the clients directory that do that
17:15 goehle more specifically checkProblem.pl
17:15 goehle and renderProblem.pl
17:15 hotdogs sweet, I'll check it out
17:15 goehle read through the perl looking at the comments
17:15 goehle it will tell you what you need to set to get it to run
17:15 goehle the webserver still needs to be running
17:15 goehle but you dont need a browser
17:15 goehle it will create a file with all of the problems that have rendering errors
17:16 goehle Its been recently revived in the develop branch
17:16 goehle but not fully tested
17:16 goehle so let us know if there are problems
19:52 hotdogs joined #webwork
22:44 rbeezer joined #webwork
