[REBOL] Re: REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha)

From: dmurrill:mindspring at: 13-Jun-2001 18:36

Could someone tell me what's expected from the browser plug-in and i'll share what i know. Java plug-in is for IE & NS but it's 8mb, but it is a solution, i have the docs. IE plug-in solution is the best, but it only work if you have IE in your computer, or you must download 2 small files. Hey, the barebones size is Rebols style, 1kb but it's only for windows & unix. I allso made Rebol plug-in with DHTML, applet, and activeX control with the ability to start %.r with out browser leaving page. Windows can execute %.r all ready directly from the page, the trick is putting all %.r files in tdc control or <iframe> and the page will stay there. If RT really like to solve there VID issue for browser world (replace html with easy rebol dialect would get browser Joe excited, much easier and smaller than Curl) it can easily be done. Consider the EMBED tag for the mBED runtime. It is small enough to run along side Rebol/View, and with it you can make true Reblets. It's open technology but not open source yet, maybe we can get things moving if we make a parser for there runtime. We are alloud to do that. The interactor 1.1 is a developement invorenment that could easily make VIDs automatically. Think about it please. I have no association with mBED, i just believe it needs Rebol and Rebol should consider it.
