[REBOL] Re: Documentation: Let's do it NOW!

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 8-Aug-2003 9:27

Hi Robert, et al RMM> Hi, just a note to all that might not follow Rebol from the beginning. RMM> There is/was once a Rebol word dictonary Reblet that allowed to add your RMM> own notes to each entry. You had a filter to select the words of some RMM> category (like GUI, control, logic). I still use it here. There are still times where the extended notes contain useful tidbits not in the HELP for a function. I agree it would be a great central piece, and that it would fit well with the library project in some way. For the Library project, we talked about various ways the submission and collaboration could work and--at least for now--we're going with something relatively simple. Sunanda has been working on the new submission pieces (you can submit scripts now, but we have to do things manually, and the goal is to automate everything so there's no delay waiting for us to get involved). RMM> Further I think such a Reblet would perfectly fit into the library RMM> project (this doesn't mean that the Library people should do it). The RMM> dictonary Reblet could be extended with a library Reblet. With such a RMM> tool, we have 80%+ of all required infos in one place. Next thing would RMM> be to add tutorials etc. Being able to launch other scripts is a good thing. LAUNCH is the necessary piece, though there are still security risks of course. The Librarian reblet has an option that lets us DO scripts directly, but we need LAUNCH to keep from having scripts that use VIEW eat its main window. Details like that. I'm all for the project, but I need to focus my free time on the Library project first. I'll be happy to comment and work on the Library side of things. Whether the Library becomes the hub, or the other way around, a central doc station would be a terrific thing IMO. -- Gregg
