[REBOL] Re: Shared Library Returns...

From: carl:rebol at: 18-May-2001 8:37

Thanks for the comments. Yes, this is a beta. I hope new users see it that way... but I agree with you (and other comments on this thread too). On those missing folders... I added a few categories that have no scripts, so the folders were not created. Probably should add the folder, even tho it is empty. That would prevent the popup. I also want to add a text file to every folder to explain what types of scripts it contains. On the problem with core scripts... we should discuss this. The script library contains more than just runable scripts. It also has: 1) Examples - that show users something, but don't do much useful. 2) Function Includes - that define functions, but do nothing else. 3) CGI or server script - that need to be run on a server. 4) Pro or Command scripts - that require more than Core or View It looks like we will need to add another field to headers to indicate the above. That info could be used by add-script to use different icons for different scripts. Users can then see what icons are worth clicking on. There might be some way to indicate that the script needs to keep the console open when it has finished. Otherwise, you just see a flash on the screen for Core scripts, and wonder what happened. I think we can manually fix some of the scripts that require images by adding a read-thru or request-download to them. Eventually this will be added to the needs field... making it even easier to include. Finally, I would like a browser for the library. It would appear in the top level folder and allow users to easily browse the library by topic. I've got a prototype for that here somewhere... I can post it, and you can enhance it. -Carl
