I haven't begun work on the Tor integration yet but it will work much
like the current Website hosting infrastructure works. Presently when
you create a new website on arkOS, you choose the type of site you
want to run then fill out a quick list of options such as site name,
access credentials, and hostname + port for advanced users. Then you
click OK and it installs + configures the site for you.
So ideally there will be an option on the Websites page that allows
the user to check off a box "Run as hidden service", then the software
does the work of enabling that service in torrc and applying necessary
settings in the background. There will also be a connection manager
(probably bundled with the Network pane for efficiency's sake) that
allows you to adjust other Tor settings as you might expect.
You are correct - as I understand it a user would be able to host a
service that is only accessible via Tor, if that is what they wany. As
with everything else involved in setting up a website or service with
arkOS, configuration will be minimal and intuitive, taking care of
most configuration options by itself where possible, but still
allowing advanced users to fine-tune.
I'm not sure what you mean off the top of my head by if "cables" will
be included as a service - could you elaborate?
