[REBOL] Re: Idea for

From: robert:muench:robertmuench at: 25-Mar-2004 8:10

Hi, I want to give a follow-up input to our peer review discussion. IMO this topic is still an important one, because it can make it easier for new people to get started quickly with Rebol. Further it should help us all to implement our ideas much faster if we have a good library. There is so much good code out there, that it's a pity if it's not used just because there is no place to look for, no support from an active community, you name it. I decided to give this idea a test after Max jumped in and gave an example WRT his efforts. He mentioned his slim library manager and that the feedback was mostly none. I'm currently assembling a framework for IOS development and thought, well, let's try it out and see what's behind this stuff. I took me around half a day to read thru the docs, create some tests and finally make most of the code I wanted to put into the framework compatible to the slim library manager. To be honest, I didn't expected this! Well done Max! This makes my life a lot easier now. I don't want to start a discussion about slim here, but it's a good example. We have a nice tool, we have a library but what's missing is the integration step. If slim doesn't fit our needs, or can be optimized or whatever, I'm sure Max is open for suggestions. Even more, I think people interested in how to handle library and modules, should jump in and peer-review what we have with slim. It might not be the best solution, but it's a very good start that works out easy. I would like to test, a peer-reviewing of slim. It's a good test candidate. And I'm sure within a very short time, we have 90%+ of the library manager we all want, that everyone can use, and that is optimized thru the Rebol gurus here. Who is interested? -- Robert M.
