[REBOL] Widgets

From: john_kenyon::mlc::com::au at: 16-Dec-2005 17:34

Hi all, OS X provides pop up user utilities called widgets which reside in a dashboard (see Yahoo! have recently released a similar widget system for both Windows and OS X (see Both of these products are rather slow, memory intensive and complex to develop for. It would be fairly trivial to write a similar tool in rebol which may open up the language to a number of new developers. Common widgets available perform lookups on web sites and present the information in a clean customised format. This type of "screen scraping" is already a strong area for rebol.
