[REBOL] Re: Reference docs for View
From: cybarite:sympatico:ca at: 8-Jul-2001 19:51
I once offered to help RT expand on the base of easyvid.r which I think is
the best learning tool
available for View. What Carl S provided in easyvid.r is a visual way of
seeing code source
and then clicking to see what it will do. Then those $%#@#! image files
from html are
I did send off some update pages for easyvid but I think the RT workload
prevented them from being reviewed
and posted. Or maybe it was just a bad idea ... sometimes I follow those
threads too long ... like back to the spool.
If there is interest in re-gathering some updates and posting them, speak up.
I think it will cut down on the mailing list items and make it easier to
find an example that works.
Some of the challenges with easyvid.r that I remember were:
a. some of the colors were difficult to read on some of the different
screens where I displayed it. Or more
precisely some of text did not show up against the dark backgrounds.
b. the left side scroll does not move down
c. some important items not yet addressed
d. examples of data entry were too simple... not like the cross edits and
updates needed in a real application
e. a base knowledge was assumed. Things that are easy or obvious for RT
and the expert levels on the mailing list
are not necessarily easy for a JSP programmer (joe six pack).
Let me know your thoughts (..... or not)
If there are some positive responses, I would send out notes to some of the
experts asking them to
provide short examples ... like Brett's scrolling text list that I too needed.
