aah .. Sorry Maarten I had forgotten about erebol.
I gather the best place to get it now is: http://www.rebolforces.com/~erebol/
as part of the mighty handy 'Rebol Standard Library 1.000' ?
For the new 'build-markup' - Where are there any docs on it ?
Magic! is designed to be used with Apache. Pages containing <REBOL></REBOL> tags
are thus named .rhtml and Apache config picks them up and passes the page for
I like this .rhtml scheme as its easy to know what pages are what.
Magic! adds some features: passing values from HTML forms, security settings to
control which folders are accessible, named library path function, cookie
control, and MIME header redefinition.
For comparison, I'd be interested to learn more precisely about erebol
installation and your thoughts about various approaches/pros/cons for rebol
server side scripting.
I am a big fan of Vanilla, so I am interested to integrate this functionality
there. Vanilla already does all sorts of clever server side scripting, but the
current version defers to use call its own 'dynasnips' which require full FTP
access to install as modular library. Regular Vanilla users thus can call
dynasnips, but not create them. Direct tagged scripting like this in Vanilla
would be very helpful for through-the-web scripting, provided one can manage
permissions in a suitable fashion to match user and system status.
