Seco Scripting Environment for JRuby

Hi all,

I’d like to introduce a new, unique JVM scripting tool called Seco,
version
0.3 just released (don’t get distracted by the < 1.0 version, it’s
pretty
stable). There’s JRuby support with code assistance etc. The official
press
release follows, but here are the main pointers:

Note: JRuby is not pre-bundled to reduce download size, you need to drop
a
jar (http://seco.googlecode.com/files/seco-ruby.jar) in seco/lib after
untar-ing.

This is LGPL software, and we’d very much like to hear what you think of
it.


Kobrix Software is pleased to announce the release of Seco 0.3 Seco,
formerly known as Scriba, is a scripting development environment for
JVM-based dynamic languages. Seco has been in active development and use
for
the past several years and it is a perfect companion to the serious Java
developer.

Key features include:

  • Support of many popular JVM languages with syntax highlighting and
    code
    completion for most.
  • Advanced script editing interface based on structured notebooks as
    popularized by the Mathematica system.
  • A WYSIWYG HTML editor for documentation.
  • An infinite, zoomable 2D canvas for arbitrary layout of components,
    container nesting and more.
  • Full workspace automatically persisted in an embedded HyperGraphDB
    (http://www.kobrix.com/hgdb.jsp) database.
  • Support for importing 3d party libraries in multiple evaluation
    contexts.
  • Based on the JSR 223 standard for language interoperability - all
    languages share the same runtime context.
  • Real-time collaboration and exchange of components and notebooks via a
    P2P
    network.

Seco is perfect not only for prototyping, testing and experimentation,
but
it is also the ideal tool for learning a given JVM language or a new
Java
library. It can be used to build complete interactive applications
embedded
within the environment itself similarly to a life system like Squeak!

Seco is free, open-source, LGPL licensed software.

To download and for more information, please visit the Seco home page at

Best,
Boris
