[PowerPack] discussions about RP
OK, who will translate.... Right now I am leaning towards including RSP by Laurent Chevalier.
Translation: we will do. There is also RUn (Rebol Unit) from Christophe Coussement (RebolTof). Java Unit, Rebol made.
Magic doc is yet translated and available on Gram Chiu Comkarori
So the question is: RSP or Magic!
+1 for Magic!
I just know RSP by its name. If you know it, just compare to Magic! http://www.compkarori.com/vanilla/display/Magic!
Just did. Magic has a nice set of HTML functions but the drawback is that you need a daemon for session management, which won't work in a shared hosting env and is harder to keep alive. But is seems a bit more complete, so provided that you'll do the 3.5 translation as well I'd be happy to include it.
I need graphics support for the REBOL Powerpack reb site! If you have a backdrop, image, folder icon, .... please send them to me. See contact details here for the mail address.
The session deamon is not necessary at all AFAIK. 3.5 is not released yet, so the doc. But French community will translate ASAP as it does last time, I hope.
is there a site for PowerPack..where I can have a look at what it encompasses?
I change the name to 'PowerPack' instead of 'Rebol powerpack' .. it makes it easier to see the name of this group ... hope no one objects
What's happening with the PowerPack?
I'm looking for a bunch of "certified" software that can be used for setting up webservers, cgi, blogs, mail, pop etc.
pinging for update. if work has stopped for Powerpack, I would be glad to pick up part of the job here.
You just became one-man project-lead/implementer ;-) I never got to it.
But a lot of us like the idea. Maybe we can sneak some info out of the R3 team about how best to go about it, WRT modules and such.
not sure if this was mentioned earlier, but someone said that Uniserve is GPL.. it's not.. it's BSD
I will look into getting the Powerpack going. I will need to spend some time reading through the archives to ensure that the original objective remains clear. That should help serve as the guidelines for making decisions down the road.
Is anyone in this group still interested in a more serious REBOL repository? May be adjunct to REBOL.org, or something else, but targeted at a more consistent model for libraries and modules, so things are easier to INCLUDE and reuse.
I haven't followed the group too closely, but are the rules and the model for libraries and modules made?
we are converging all prior efforts and their originators into a single concerted effort.
There's a new private chat group. I'll add you to it.
I'm interested, but I am afraid that I will disagree with other people who have different ideas about what is the best way to implement a library/module system - therefore I am cautious before spending too much time here.
I am working on a "starterpack" when I find some time. It simply downloads the scripts I found useful or very interesting but they are not really managed/organised but for I put them in different directories depending on their main purpose
If someone is interested please let me know
I would be interested in the list of scripts you use, where you place them, and how you use them. I probably wouldn't just download and install your entire config as I have established my own ways of working. I would inspect each piece and see if it has value to me.
Anton: if you are interested in "my" collection it is just one script with a data file and I plan to make it available via rebol.it
The script loads the data file that contains info on the files and how to download handle them. Archives are usually downloaded and unpacked. You just have to put both files in a directory and run the script.
Ok, I'll wait for that, then. :)
maybe we can repurpose this group for Power Mezz? the ideas are probably similar.
or, someone with permissions please make a Power Mezz group.
So to use the power pack, we have to load the module system first ....
I was just looking to see what I needed to use the html-filter function, and it seems I have to load the module system, and then import all stuff needed to run the html-filter ...
To use this you need to download a bzip decompression utility, and then you need to download something that will untar ....
Do you really need the GNU make to generate all the .r scripts ??
Graham, Gabriele uploaded a prebuilt version http://sourceforge.net/projects/rebol-power-mez/files/power-mezz-built-1.0.0.zip/download
That's the Power Mezz package - this is a different group.
Did someone make a web site for the Power Pack, or is it a dead project?
Ah, we can switch groups then.
rather ... still born
Looking back at the discussions, it looks like it was a similar idea to what the R3 group has been calling R3/Plus.
A place for community-provided library code that isn't included in the standard REBOL distribution.
Similar ideas seem to get brought up again and again with different names.
