A second demo!

Posted by Chris Granger (Creator)

Hey Folks,

I've released a second demo showing how Light Table can create domain specific tools that enable a host of experiences we haven't even thought of yet :)

      Would the domain specific functionality in Light Table also enable us to add support for visual programming tools, like ?

      Really nice. I would really like to see the webpart work with node.js

      @Alexander, Kristian:
      at update #5 it says December for early beta. However, there is a slight chance that dates are a bit earlier now that the project is on YC. Lets see.

      Fantastic demo. I cant wait to see (or create) a mode that supports noir, css & cljs-binding.
      We could have web crud apps in 5 minutes & real apps in 15 :)

      I upped my pledge because of this. I'm so excited about this tool!

      I agree 100% with the idea of turning Light Table into a workbench for creating domain specific tools. In fact, I'd love to reimplement my little markdown/latex editor called Qute as a domain specific mode for Light Table.

      I'd love to have a way to get Puppet code working. Gepetto (eclipse module) currently does some nifty stuff, but if it's possible to add languages, this would work nicely for the SA's that are out there :)

      Chris, along the lines of some previous unanswered questions - will the playground be sufficient to allow us to start developing language support plugins? It sounds like Thom (below) is ready to build Scala support. I'd sure be happy to build out some PHP support. And I'm sure countless people would jump on a Ruby plugin. If not the playground, then are there plans to at least release the specs for the plugins at some point before beta? Thanks!
