[REBOL] Laccio Framework
From: ale870::gmail::com at: 22-Aug-2007 0:04
I wish to highlight a new project I started, and currently in beta-test.
It is called Laccio Framework.
I just published some information, Laccio source code, and three examples
(I'm completing the quickstart tutorial).
*Laccio* is a framework, very small, for Rebol, composed by two objects. It
includes several important functionalities:
- Introduces (and standardize) the concept of "components" in Rebol.
Basically, a component is a reusable piece of code, composed by several
methods, variables, etc… used to create simple or complex components.
- A component is a "template" that you can use to make other component
instances (it works even with visual components, like Rebol View!).
- Every component uses a MVC-like model. In fact, every component is
divided in two parts: *View *(that manages user interaction) and *
Controller-Model* (grouped in a single object, that manages either the
business logic or the data).
- Laccio framework efficiently implements *messages *notification (the
so-called events). The concept is similar to the listeners: a component can
send a message, under specific conditions, to every other component or Rebol
application that requested to be notified when such condition is verified
(an application can "*listen*" a specific message). I wish to
highlight this feature: in many languages, only a single method (function)
can receive a message, and such method has to "spread" the message by
calling other functions; in Laccio, you can directly register as many
functions as you want, using a simple syntax!
- Creating and/or using components is a *very simple task*, and a *very
small amount of work *must be done.
Every comment, information, opinions, suggestions are welcome.
I think it is a great help for Rebol developers, and it will help us to
increase the collaboration, cooperation to create better and more complex
