[REBOL] Script Library: Script tagging improvements
From: dhsunanda:gma:il at: 26-Jun-2008 8:29
It's been quiet in the Library recently, but we have just released
the change that was at the top of most people's request list:
EASIER SCRIPT CONTRIBUTION
Scripts contributed to the Library no longer need a horribly
Previously, we've required a quite detailed set of entries on a
header. Anyone (including me) who has tried to upload a new script
will remember the several rejections each requiring yet another
No more! The Library will accept scripts with minimal headers.
Here's an example, just three entries needed:
All other previous header options are now optional.
And that leads to ....
FREE FORMAT TAGGING
Previously, you could search the Library for scripts which had
certain Header values (eg [type: game] or [level: beginner]
But if scripts no longer have mandatory header entries, how do
they acquire such values?
The answer is that any script can now have tags added to it using
the new tag editor. No need to upload a new version of a script
simply to retag it.
The tag index is here:
(the initial values were built from the Library headers).
If you want to add or edit tags for any script, please feel free:
-- log on to the Library
-- view the script
-- notice it now has an [Edit Tags] link
For help in editing tags
To summarise: it's easier to contribute scripts. And it's easier
for anyone to chip in and help categorise them.
Have fun if you want to play with this!
