[REBOL] Re: plugin question

From: jasonic::nomadics::org at: 1-Sep-2004 16:02

Sunanda Thanks for your comments.. -- Security -- My understanding was that the Rebol plug-in already sandboxes Rebol scripts in the browser from doing damage, just as flash does - i.e. locks one out of the file system. Please can anyone clarify this? -- Catch-22:Chicken-Egg -- Yes I appreciate your 'If they come, we will play' approach. I'll bet though that there are many small View scripts already on which would run as is. must be all kinds of small demos and technique how-to examples. I suppose a script could parse though looking for 'show view layout' etc and try to run them in the browser. A fast hack to explore scope of the existing possibilities and hope to encourage future ones. -- Platform -- Re: Tom's comment about needing XP: IE and Firefox installation caveats.. Yes true. But that should not be an obstacle. XP and IE are incredibly popular, like them or not. Firefox improves thinking people's attitude/experience of XP. More exposure for rebol is a good thing (tm) RT and community spent a lot of precious effort [at the expense partly of new View] to get Plug-in released. Therefore build upon that investment by making it as easy as possible to use. Does anyone have stats on browser platform access to for example? How many people are in fact using XP : IE Firefox ? I see transparent access to rebol plug-in at working like a nice intro to Easy-Vid. You know --> Display code snippets --> click text to run/view --> Smile and go wow/aha :-) -- Evangels-- My background argument as always is that Rebol needs better web exposure. has increased the Google/Division visibility significantly. There is a new generation of potential Rebolers who could be about to discover Rebol. Flash Actionscript programming while much more powerful, has also gotten considerably more complicated and expensive for newbie's. Rebol in the browser is a great mini-laboratory for kids to learn and play with. Jason
