In a little detour from our regular programming, I just made Forge (a command line tool to run HyperTalk scripts that contains the core of Stacksmith) run on Windows.

That doesn't mean there will be a Stacksmith for Windows, but it is a fun test of how portable that part of Stacksmith is.

Just added another way to add objects to a project (using the Stack Canvas). This for the first time includes a non-script way to create menus!

Did some icons yesterday for the script editor's handler suggestions:

So stacksmith.org has now been sort of restored, and a hopefully not quite as broken build can be found on the Github releases page.

Apologies for the state Stacksmith is currently in. The web site died as the result of a server issue, and I haven't had time to work on it recently, so I'm not sure if you can build it with the current Xcode.

Forge can now be used in a "web site mode" not unlike PHP: Scripts can be enclosed in <? and ?> and in between web page content can be left: mastodon.cloud/media/xhbJDasja

(Now keep in mind, lacking built-in file access in that tool or ability to launch other shell scripts, it's at best useful for simple text processing)

I just updated the Forge command line tool so it will work as a Unix scripting language (in that it will ignore the shebang). github.com/uliwitness/Forge

Wrote some blog posts on things that happen in Stacksmith. First one can be found here: orangejuiceliberationfront.com more on the next few weekends.
