[REBOL] Re: Idea for rebol.org...

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
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?
