should try also to have a holiday ;)
You have definitely made me interested in looking again at Orbiter, if
only to document it more carefully. But first I think I need to push
out a new LDoc....
I still believe in the original vision - Orbiter is meant to be a
little app server that only depends on LuaSocket, and is also meant to
present a component-based interface that abstracts away from the
such as myself. However, I am not very good at styling.
Of course, it's worth looking again at old GUI patterns and trying to
re-imagine them on a higher level as more declarative - Lua is very
good for working on those levels.
I've used it successfully to prototype web apps but I would think
twice about using this little boat on the open sea of the Web ;) It
would be interesting to know what needs to be done to make it a
candidate for embedded servers (such as on routers) but this step
should be taken by someone who actually has a clue.
