[REBOL] Re: No Don`t Leave Re: Re licence.key for SDK

From: moliad:gmai:l at: 29-May-2008 23:01

Hi Srini, --rich clients-- Rebol has a rich client version for embeding into web pages. basically its the whole of rebol/view (non pro, can't remember exactly what version) which resides within a embed/object tag, like you'd do with flash. I've used it sucessfully in commercial apps, even doing 4-way async tcp/http xfers to several servers at a time, doing altme-style synching of multiple live clients. got to be carefull though as it has full access to your disk, so its <possible> for a malicious user to fill the disk, that's the main security flaw. so I'd only recommend it for apps where the clients are within a well secured/controled environment. but its a very easy way to distribute rebol apps, and with VID's stylesheet mechanism, its pretty easy to match your web page's look. --databases-- Rebol has a very proficient interface to mysql. I've used it many times and it supports v5 of mysql. might want to look into it: --web-- People keep forgetting about REMARK, and I find this really annoying. Its one of my tools and has been in production use for a few years. It is based on a html/rebol hybrid markup language, where you define custom HTML tags which are defined as dialects. Remark is fully documented. Creating custom tags is VERY easy, and requires no advanced Rebol knowledge. Altough using it through CGI is not supported AS-IS it would require little work for one to change the main application into accepting a single page and running the engine against it. I use it to preparse all of my html stuff into ready to run html. Separation of layout/style and data is genuine, unlike most other technologies which promise this. Some people even use it to preparse their css and javascript files using custom tags which get replaced. a good feature of remark, is that you can leverage dynamic tags within each other without dependency. this means that you can actually create recursive tags, which I have done just for fun. remark engine development is still ongoing (current target is a full php replacement plus all the benefits of remark itself), but latest prototypes are not usefull to anyone, and progress is slow (cause its a hobby project). have fun reboling, and welcome to the familly :-) -MAx On Wed, May 28, 2008 at 2:21 PM, Srini Iyengar <> wrote:
