Write Ruby, Python & XAML in HTML Pages with Gestalt

Posted · Category: Framework

Gestalt is a library released by MIX Online Labs that allows you to write Ruby, Python & XAML code in your (X)HTML pages. It enables you to build richer and more powerful web applications by marrying the benefits of expressive languages, modern compilers, AJAX & RIAs with the write » save » refresh development model of the web.

For people to use the pages you write, they will need to have Silverlight installed on their machines. They harness the power of the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) to transparently compile any Ruby, Python & XAML blobs before running the scripts.


Requirements: Silverlight

    My wow quickly turned to grief when I read this:

    “For people to use the pages you write, they will need to have Silverlight installed on their machines”

    People still use ie5.5 on their pcs nevermind using Silverlight. With this restriction in effect ALOT more effort is needed to create for older as well as newer browsers.

    My thumbsup went thumbsdown with this one so quickly unfortunately :'(

    I think it would make much more sense to use a templating system like Tenjin: http://www.kuwata-lab.com/tenjin/

    It’s implemented in a lot of programming languages, among them Ruby, Python, PHP, Perl, Java, JavaScript, etc. and enables embedding code in your (X)HTML pages. And also, it’s very, very fast.

    And it only needs itself.

    Now that should be the better Webappers addition not this Gestalt crap.
