[REBOL] Re: REBOL : Pure OOP project ?

From: anton:lexicon at: 9-Apr-2002 16:25

Hear hear! Better VID libraries. But sharing content is not so simple. Effectively sharing your work means documenting it well, making it clearly available and visible on your site, and dealing with version conflicts. All of this requires a lot of effort. To do all this with an experimental project sometimes seems like it could be a pointless waste of time. IOS is better at all this than rebol/view, so we need to build tools to help us document and share files. But to make good tools, um, we need good VID libraries. It's a circular dependency. In my view, the single most needed tool for app development is a good list style. I plan to make one after I fix up my grid some more. (I saw Robert M. Muench's interesting problem and I will keep that in mind). Then we can make file-listers, directory selectors etc. much easier. With well-working gadgets everything will open up, as good apps depend on good gadgets. Anton.
