Launching trephine.org project blog
Welcome to the trephine.org project blog - the best place to find information on the project status, release announcements, bug fixes, and technical development updates. Hopefully this will engender the kinds of discussions which have already begun on the shell commands and file browser demo pages.
I have a long backlog of articles to write about a variety of trephine related topics, as well as many more demos to write and publish. Here's a short list of some of the more immediate project goals:
- Broadening language support
Create demos for most or all of the high-profile JVM languages, especially JRuby, Jython, Groovy and Scala.
Create an XMLHttpRequest() clone which uses trephine (and probably HttpClient) as its transport mechanism. This would allow user opt-in unrestrained cross-domain requests, something the web has needed for quite some time.
- Real applications
Although demos are really great at pointing out individual features, to really illustrate the capabilities of a trephine based web application it will be necessary to generate a few full-featured applications.
This list is just the beginning, so please post your suggestions as to what you'd like to see out of trephine. I look forward to hearing from you!
