do => rebol3
do/2 => rebol2

REPL.it runs client side in JavaScript, so no dice
DocKimbel
Forgot about that. Anyway most of mainstream scripting languages have a web-based console available.
Kaj
And a remote API?
GrahamC
I'm waiting for do/red ...
DocKimbel
Most don't have an API, but usually, you can hook to their JS API.
JS API: I mean their server-side API used by JS.
do/red: me too. :)
Kaj
Easy, easy, spent all week setting up an environment for fixing the exising networking examples on Windows

Kaj: what feature is missing to make a TryRed?
Kaj
48 hours in a day?
GrahamC
that's 2 days
Kaj
Yes, that's the problem :-)
If you want a missing feature in Red, that would be the lexer, currently without paths and refinements
GrahamC
ok, what is missing from red what would prevent this being implemented
Kaj
See, still ahead of you ;-)
GrahamC
yeah .. I was sipping hot tea!
DocKimbel
I plan to work on it tomorrow. The Unicode version is far from being ready, but I should be able to hack the current one to add refinements and paths support.
GrahamC
I think this is a fantastic way to teach things ... a shared multiline repl
Kaj
While I sleep you could implement Boron, or play with the Red browser
GrahamC
well, boron is what .. do/3 ?
