<< are there any known efforts for developing an integrated
fullfeatured email, todo-list and calendar application (like MS Outlook)
with REBOL? >>
There is a Yahoo group working on a mail client tentatively called
RebMail, though things have stalled a bit since the terrorist attack
in the U.S.
Etienne Alaurent(?) has developed a Virtual Office workspace where
all the components are plug-ins, though I'm not sure what his
release plans are.
<< What would you view as the main REBOL-spesific obstacles for
the development of such thing? >>
Compared to any other language? Very few. There are example scripts
already out there, including InLook and Phil Bevan's complete GUI mail
reader that do the mail part. Carl himself wrote the to-do list app
that's on the main REBOL desktop demo page. I think there are some
examples of calendars as well. Looking at what the new IOS reblets
have to offer (see the REBOL web site), it may also be practical to
go that route if you're building a custom solution.
