[REBOL] Re: REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha)

From: martin:middleton:speechworks at: 8-Jun-2001 12:01

I'm no browser expert, but I had to share this 'cause it's too cool! RT has done another excellent job. I primarily use Opera as my browser. I installed the Netscape plug-in via Netscape. I then copied the plug-in to the Opera plug-in directory, told Opera to rescan it's plug-ins and viola! it works! I can now launch REBOL scripts directly from my browser. Wicked cool! A few data points to note, though, if you want to do this: 1) Make sure you restart the browser prior to trying to use the plug-in. 2) After you close a REBOL app, you have to use the back button of the browser. Otherwise, the browser just sits there waiting to complete some instruction. It looks like it's hung, but it's not. 3) Ocasionally, it's necessary to minimize and then maximize the browser window, if redraws don't appear to happen after closing a REBOL script. - martin
