[REBOL] Re: No framework library for rebol ?

From: ammon:rcslv at: 22-May-2002 19:08

Hi, Frameworks, frameworks.... That is what a lot of ppl are saying, but what framework do you want? REBOL is extremely powerful and for most things it would be better to build what you need as you need it. With REBOL development time is greatly reduced, not because of frameworks, but because os the simplicity of the system. The one framework that seems to be lacking is better GUI controls. What is available is powerful, there is a lot of potential for the View engine, but I think that VID could use a lot of work. As for that, there are several different projects going on that are attempting to fix that trouble, one of which I might mention is REBOL Integrated Development Environment (RIDE) The RIDE project is coming back to life after having set dormant for a few months. I am working on setting up an IOS Server which will be designed to help developers work together on their own projects. The client to the server will include the tools of RIDE. Currently there is a powerful Face editing tool almost complete and an object browser/editor which will be the main script editing environment. The Object Browser will also have a built in debugger (work in progress) One of the things that will be available is some more advanced styles and a skinning system. The whole idea of the server is to provide a SorceForge type comunity for REBOL developers. I am looking at some version control systems as well.... The features go on, but for now let that suffice. ;-) HTH Ammon A short time ago, laplace, sent an email stating:
