1. What are reTools ?
** ReTools are a collection of applications and utilities written in the REBOL language. These are actuall programs or scripts to run and use. The reTools use the libraries on this site, so they can also act as a testament to the STEEL library's capabilities. **
Within the next weeks, I will be releasing and documenting, in this centralised space, the REBOL applications and utilities which I have created throughout the years.
Some are small, some are quite big, some are VERY usefull, others more like a demo... All where a labor of love. <cough!> ;-) .
2. The list of currently available reTools
status: production ready
reMark is finally available online!.
A dialected markup language, specifically meant to be unobstrubtive to web HTML
Includes a gui for multiple-site management and remote FTP dumping.
This whole site is built using only reMark technology and was rebuilt in a few hours.
Obviously the actual content, needs a bit of time to be implemented, but the markup and site update becomes trivial.
Using its advanced persistent functional-type parsing, you can do things which go FAR beyond what CSS alone can give you. (remark uses css extensively by default).
ststus: Released, fully functional
This is the package downloader which is live on rebol.org for a while already.
It was recently updated to make it REBOL 1.3.2 compatible and uses a more recent version of GLayout.
you can start it by doing the following:
Here is a link to the rebol.org site documentation on packages
reGraph is available as a technological demo of liquid's capabilities.
Graphic editing application built using liquid within GLayout.
Has graphic primitives and on-screen interactive editing.
3. The list of forthcomming reTools
status: incomplete but stable and usable
Retask is a simple task tracker.
Less concerned with what will be done than what HAS been done.
Its still quite simple, but sometimes, that all we really need no?
status: design prototype.
Powerfull gui application development made easy. This tool will allow you to interactively create GLayout driven applications.
Support for groups, resizing, custom glatyout style creation, and special hidden GUI application development will make this the most fluid engine around.
Note - I am using reLayout as a test bed for liquid development.
status: command line prototype
still only a set of command-line tools, reZip will eventually become a graphically driven zip file packer and extractor.
I already have a full zip file handling module which handles packing, extracting, empty dirs and relative paths, all it now needs is a front-end to make it easy to drive for anyone.
3.4 and more!
I'm just tempting all of you aren't I ;-).
Actually, the reason I put this online, is to have the complete site layout in place, in order for me to concentrate solely on content.
And having all of this online means I have to get to it... really this time I am!
