First GNUstep Renaissance Public Release. 13

Christopher "CJayC" Jenkins writes "Nicola Pero recently announced on the discuss-gnustep mailing list the public release of his GNUstep Renaissance software, which allows for user interfaces utilizing the GNUstep and Apple Cocoa APIs to be specified in XML. While still alpha-quality code, it can be used at the present to replace .nib (and .gorm and .gmodel) files with .gsmarkup files, which can be easily edited by hand. "

The source code can be checked out of the GNUstep CVS repo:
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gn ustep login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gn ustep co dev-libs/Renaissance

    Off the top of my head, we have:
    • Glade XML [gnome.org] for GTK+ apps
    • XUL [xulplanet.com] from the Mozilla [mozilla.org] project
    • and now Renaissance from the GNUStep/Cocoa folks

    plus dozens of non-portable, programmatic interfaces (Tk, Swing, Motif, Mac Toolbox, etc.) Is anybody looking at whether a portable superset XML spec is feasible? XSLT transforms ought to be able to derive a platform-specifc file. Imagine:

    ./configure --with-interface=cocoa

    User Interfaces are the final frontier of program portability.

      Not every software needs to be ./configure'd ;-)

      Take a look at THE [sourceforge.net].
