[REBOL] Re: No Don`t Leave Re: Re licence.key for SDK

From: idsrini::gmail::com at: 30-May-2008 11:34

Hi MAx, Thank for the info....... --rich clients-- --Rebol has a rich client version for embeding into web pages. --basically its the whole of rebol/view (non pro, can't remember exactly --what version) which resides within a embed/object tag, like you'd do --with flash. Are you referring to the Rebol Plugin ? If so, I suppose development is fairly straightforward.... --web-- --People keep forgetting about REMARK, and I find this really annoying. --Its one of my tools and has been in production use for a few years. --It is based on a html/rebol hybrid markup language, where you define --custom HTML tags which are defined as dialects. I visited the remark site, and did not see any downloadables there. However, the custom tags - RTAGS - are quite good. I quote from the site documentation "They are the core api of the remark engine. All custom tags are implented within the engine as RTAGS. Adding new tags is trivial, coding smart tags is a great deal of fun. There is theoretically no limit to what an rtag can do, as it evaluates REBOL code when a tag is found. You could even do inserts WITHIN a database whenever a page is parsed, or do queries FROM a database to get data from it." In such a case, surely intelligent tags can be easily written to make development of web pages a breeze, rather than the current painful approach generally. Could you throw more light on this.... Remark, as I understand it, is a tool to create and maintain web sites - A web site management and admin tool. However there is need for integration with CGI/FASTCGI to make it a tool for developing web sites with access to databases, etc. I may be completely wrong here.... please feel free to correct me.....Possibly need access to CGI thru Custom Tags to ensure that the data sent to the user is dynamic and latest.....OR Possibly use it in conjuncton with regular CGI and throw HTML code using Custom Tags by preparsing the tags ....... Regarding database access, I had mentioned with reference to Sqlite, beacuse of it size. I had not, at that point, investigated MySql. And while we're at it.... Are there any charting tools available for Rebol (commercial and/or free) ? ...In today's world, presentation and visualization of information and data are increasingly playing an important role and such tools go a long way in enabling businesses take decisions quickly or at least help them identify problem areas..... And MAx - what's the latest on STEEL and the SLIM library.........., if I may ask...... --Srini On 30/05/2008, Maxim Olivier-Adlhoch <> wrote:
