Giulio does all his programming on his phone.  And maybe runs a web server on this phone :(
Arnold
And his phone is as big as a refridgerator? Big enough to even run Java? Still impressive work!
GrahamC
No, one of his criteria for a computing device is that it fits in his pocket.

A little script that controls a Tello drone.  The problem we had with this is that the drone replies to the first UDP port it gets commands from. So, we need to fix the port we open rather than leaving it to the OS to allocate the port.  We have local-id now for that.
Before that Rebol had no way of specifying which port to open, except when opening a server port.

Gregg
Cool Graham.
GrahamC
It's like controlling a logo turtle in the sky :)
Gregg
In that case, VERY cool. :^)

We now have the empscripten builds available for download http://metaeducation.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html
Of course there's no documentation, and it's pretty fragile. But it's a starting point.
I wanted to use the emscripten builds to have a web page to control my Tello drone but alas Javascript doesn't have UDP support built in.

Bo
What are some examples of what can be done with a Rebol3 emscripten build?

GrahamC
It's there as a R3 interpreter for people to easily try out.
I imagine in time we will have complete control of the DOM so that you'll be able control the browser and JS. But initially it's JS calling Rebol.

Bo
I'd be excited to be able to control the DOM from R3...

There's no spoon (R3)
Bo
Spoon?

Pekr
"There is no spoon" is famous saying from The Matrix movie. What I mean is - there is (mostly) no R3. There is Ren-C though. The question is, if we should regard it being a direct continuation of an R3 effort, as there does not seem to be any other active effort ...

GrahamC
Current focus is now on getting Dom manipulation using the Emscripten build.  And this apparently involves running a JS emulator in JS!  How twisted is that?
