WWW2009 EPrints

Will an easy to use language attract content experts?

This item is a Paper in the Developers track.

Full text not available from this repository.


We propose a new web plugin, enabling content creators to step easily to the next level of producing compelling web applications from scratch without needing to learn obscure syntax and concepts. The plugin is based on the well established Revolution desktop development system, an English-like scripting language descended from the HyperCard tradition. The same language will run on the server side and on the client side directly embedded in HTML and executed as the page is sent or loaded. We will demonstrate how to build a web application using a simple simulation complete with multimedia, integrated information and embedded Revolution tags. We will include details of the public beta program.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
