    Toolips Remote allows you to connect to your server from the Julia REPL. Simply load the Remote extension into your server, and then use the connect function to connect to it. You will then be prompted to login!

quick start

First, inside of your toolips project's source file, add Remote to your Vector{ServerExtension}.

routes = [route("/", home), fourofour]
extensions = Vector{ServerExtension}([Logger(), Remote(Dict{Int64, Function}(1 => home))])
start(IP::String, PORT::Integer, ) -> ::ToolipsServer
The start function starts the WebServer.
function start(IP::String = "", PORT::Integer = 8000)
     ws = WebServer(IP, PORT, routes = routes, extensions = extensions)
     ws.start(); ws

Functions can be changed by providing to the first postional argument a Dict{Int64, Function} with a different function for each user group, represented by an Int64. Users can be changed by modifying the users Vector right after it, passwords can promptly and easily be changed using the set_pwd method. Of course, this can also be provided via an environmental variable. When writing a Remote function, make sure that there is a method for a single positional argument either of type AbstractConnnection or RemoteConnection. If your function is annotated as an AbstractConnection, you could even use the same exact route that serves your website.

function home(c::AbstractConnection)
    mydivider = div("mydivider")
    push!(mydivider, h("helloworld", 1, text = "hello world!"))
    push!(mydivider, a("toolips-link", text = "toolips :)",
    href = ""))
    write!(c, mydivider)

Once our ToolipsServer is started, we can use the connect method in order to connect to our server.
