[REBOL] Re: Independent /encap

From: maximo:meteorstudios at: 15-Aug-2003 12:56

what's the difference between encap and rebox... ? doesn't rebox make a binary that you can run without installing rebol, if so what does encap do more? IMHO, REBOL as a web browser plugin is the MOST NEEDED evangelisation tool right now.. would flash have taken off as it has if it weren't encapsulated as a web-plugin, I'm not sure... If we could just share our code and run it on a web browser, imagine how easy it is to brag, show and tell. just tell you friend to go to such and such web page (the installation is web based, just for the browser), and poof, the ui opens. Just the basic gels demo gets most people exited, especially when they see the code needed to do it. anything that needs to be "installed" just to try out, makes many people fearfull. a long time ago, I tried out core just because I new it wasn't going to play in the registry and If I didn't like it, nothing was going to be hanging around after... -max ----------- meteor Studios, T.D. ----------- Never Argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience
