Basic AIR native extension to Red language

What is Red

Red is a computer programming language. ... Introduced in 2011 by Nenad Rakocevic, Red is both an imperative and functional programming language. Its syntax and general usage overlaps that of the interpreted Rebol language (which was introduced in 1997). More info available at: http://red-lang.org

What is AIR

Adobe AIR is a cross-operating-system runtime that lets developers combine HTML, JavaScript, Adobe Flash® and Flex technologies,and ActionScript® to deploy rich Internet applications (RIAs) on a broad range of devices including desktop computers, netbooks, tablets, smartphones, and TVs.

What is ANERed

ANERed is experiment with embedding Red library into AIR context using AIR Native extension.

This repository contains sources and script for building the ANERed extension and also example test AIR app which contains very simple console for testing Red commands directly from AIR. Here is how it can look like:

Screenshot

It is still having some issues.. like the values returned from Red are always just a string and also as the output from Red's print is passed using async call, which is the only way probably.. so the output may be out off sync with input. There may be problems with Red ask function, View blocking and similar cases, but that is probably ok.. I don't expect someone would be using the library as real console in AIR.

To build ANERed and the test app, you must download AIR SDK and modify the setup.bat script.

Using Red directly is imho more fun! Follow Red development at GitHub: https://github.com/red/red and or discuss it at Gitter: https://gitter.im/red/red
