@CodingItWrong I'll be posting status updates here, or on my Discord (join via https://discord.gg/kvwAkba). I've not yet decided if the new version will be open source or not, so currently no code to see.
Will post a built version people can write scripts against once it's a bit farther along. What kind of help would you be able to offer?
@CodingItWrong Sort of, yeah. No Qt or anything like that, though I've abstracted away the platform-specific parts and am also working on a Windows port.
So https://stacksmith.org has now been sort of restored, and a hopefully not quite as broken build can be found on the Github releases page.
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: https://mastodon.cloud/media/xhbJDasjaVKURRLDQ0Y
(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). https://github.com/uliwitness/Forge
