Syllable Desktop Gets REBOL 3 Development Collaboration

The latest version of the REBOL 3 open host kit, alpha 110, enables Syllable Desktop for the first time to run the REBOL 3 client/server RebDev collaboration application for chat and development files sharing (screenshot).

It already worked in the Linux version for Syllable Server. The client is not an application that was ported and needs to be installed, but is a small REBOL script that is downloaded in its newest version every time the program is started – much like a web page. Currently, it runs unmodified on various platforms, including Syllable Desktop, Syllable Server, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Amiga OS (PPC), OS X (Intel & PPC) and Windows.

The source code of the REBOL3 open host environment is now hosted in a public Git version management repository. To compile REBOL3 on Syllable Desktop, you need to have the following software packs installed:

To compile REBOL3 and start the RebDev application, enter the following commands:

build update<br />
build log<br />
build get REBOL-Core--current<br />
build patch REBOL-Core--current<br />
build REBOL-Core--current<br />
build install REBOL-Core--current<br />
r3<br />
chat<br />
new-user<br />

Compiling the REBOL3 host kit on Syllable Server is very similar, but a little different due to accounting for filesystem security. Enter the following commands:

s build update<br />
build log<br />
build REBOL-Core--current<br />
s build install REBOL-Core--current<br />
r3<br />
chat<br />
new-user<br />
