Subject: mhttpd.js split into midas.js, mhttpd.js and obsolete.js 
As discussed before, the midas omnibus javascript file mhttpd.js has been split into three pieces:

midas.js - midas "public api" for building web pages that interact with midas
mhttpd.js - javascript functions used by mhttpd web pages
obsolete.js - functions still in use, but not recommended for new designs, mostly because of the deprecated "Synchronous XMLHttpRequest" business.

Consider these use cases:

a) completely standalone web pages served from some other web server (not mhttpd): loading midas.js, set the mhttpd location (base URL) via mjsonrpc_set_url(url) and issue 
midas json-rpc requests as normal. (mhttpd fully supports the cross-site scripting (CORS) function).

b) custom pages loaded from mhttpd without midas styling: same as above, but no need to set the mhttpd base url.

c) custom pages loaded from mhttpd with midas styling: load midas.js, load mhttpd.js, load midas.css or mhttpd.css, see aaa_template.html or example.html to see how it all fits 

d) custom replacement for mhttpd standard web pages: to replace (for example) the standard "alarms" page, copy (or create a new one) alarms.html into the experiment directory 
($MIDAS_DIR, same place as .ODB.SHM) and hack away. You can start from alarms.html, from aaa_template.html or from example.html.


P.S. I am also reviewing mhttpd.css - the existing css file severely changes standard html formatting making it difficult to create custom web pages (all online tutorials and examples 
look nothing like that are supposed to look like). The new CSS file midas.css fixes this by only changing formatting of html elements that explicitly ask for "midas styling", without 
contaminating the standard html formatting. midas.css only works for example.html and aaa_template.html for now.

P.P.S. Here is the complete list of javascript functions in all 3 files:
