HTML,XML DOM is built as a tree structure from a document. In order
to get or set something you must search the
entire tree with each call to a tag. Before returning a single tag
it must first build a nodelist of all alike tags before
a method (function call) can be used.
You actually need a browser, editor or IDE, and code experience with
HTML5, and to move or share across networks, XSL, XSLT, Xpath, XQuery,
Ajax, a server, and server-side/backend with
access to client-side frontends, security, and administration. WWWOOOOOWWW!.
Rebol parse along with block searching is simpler, faster, easier
to code, send, or recieve and uses less memory.
The Rebol choir membors know how to do all that need-to-know in one
language, Rebol!, WWWOOOOWWW!....
The Rebol upjump (advantage) is a serious downfall. To spend the
time using others stuff (bloatware) is a big time
waister wich leaves Rebol all but alone, by itself and unused cause
that bloatware in its domain can do it better
when it's supported by more of the standard bloatware stuff. But
have you seen how many disparate languages
you need to use in a Web full stack process.
To get people to use Rebol it has to have modules, FFI, execute C
code, plug-ins, GPU'ed, data-based, IOS-Android
and media/browser access, embedable, AI, CLOUD-able, all wrapped
up with a pretty open source bow. Please.
Thats why i believe RED is the right direction for Rebol. But the
wrong direction. Because people only want stuff. Either
that suff has to do more stuff or be a part of the best known stuff
to make them feel better or a part of the best stuff
going on at that moment.
So i give in. I want Rebol to catch on, not catch up. The Rebol-DOM
is a way to load every body's stuff in, parse that stuff
up, change stuff, and send that stuff back out and let that other
bloatware stuff deal with it.
Rebol don't need no stuff. It needs to progressively replace it by
hiding the Rebol language and acting like a cloud
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) open source messenger through
the internet. Nothing needs to change. This is what
Rebol is and does already. Rebol just needs this kind of App to materialize
and offer itself up on a subscription base.
