[REBOL] IOS (was: Browser gripe)

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 17-Mar-2002 14:11

Hi Jason, RT has some info on their site, and you can sign up to try an eval of IOS. Experiencing it is much better than trying to explain it. << why great? >> I can publish things via IOS to a server. I can then go anywhere in the world and fire up the IOS/Link client on a clean machine, and everything I've published (or that anyone else has published on the server) is automatically sync'd. Now, lots of people on this list will undoubtedly think "Yeah, so what. I know of n other systems that do that too." The thing that makes IOS great, to me, is how simply, easily, and reliably it all works. IOS doesn't provide everything you might ever want, but it's easy to extend. For one project I'm working on, we're using a remote Rugby server along with IOS to provide facilities that I don't yet know how to provide via IOS. I built the original app under /View, we installed IOS, published the scripts, and it ran under IOS without any changes. IOS becomes a simple deployment mechanism. I can have the Conference reblet fired up, and have people looking at the app. As they make suggestions, I can tweak it on the fly, re-publish it, and they can run it again to see the changes. If I need to roll back to a previous version, IOS maintains a history of published versions for me automatically. Just a few thoughts anyway... --Gregg
