[REBOL] Re: Rugby XPi : The next generation

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 23-Jan-2002 15:17

Hi Maarten, I'll have to think about the items you proposed a bit, but I can give you some off-the-cuff thoughts right now. :) First, one of the things I *really* like about Rugby is its simplicity. If things can be implemented outside the core functionality, I would vote for that. Of course, this needs to be balanced with the desire for a simple installation. If we end up with too many components, that wouldn't be a good thing either. Other feature ideas: A couple small test/diagnosis scripts. As you know, our setup was a little odd when I started using Rugby. A little auto-test tool that could tell you if the connections worked, whether stubs could be imported correctly, etc. would be great. A 'restart function for servers? For example, let's say I have a Rugby server running, and it talks to hardware, only the hardware might get wacky and not let me know when things have gone wrong, or maybe I know my app will consume memory over time for some reason. Maybe I can run for a while in these states, but restarting occasionally gives me a clean slate to work from. I'll try to make some time to cook up a couple more sample scripts to go with it. Real life has kicked in with a vengance recently, but I'll try my best. :) Would it also be helpful to have an "architectural overview" or design document for Rugby? --Gregg
