Please move over to my new project: Safe Lua
Well well well. So much time has passed since the last post... then December 2010, now August 2011. What happened to Eye? Well. Eye fell into a deep slumber after a short but intense and beautiful life. Actually it's kinda just dead, simply.
Interestingly, there isn't really any pain in any of this. Eye came into existence in an instance, in one moment, out of the blue... like someone in a very high position snipped a finger and said "Let's do that". Then, when some period was over, the same person said "Ok, it's enough now". And the project just peacefully died. Simple as that.
It's really quite extraordinary being an enlightened person... :)
So. After numerous revolutionary events over the last months, I am now developing some software again. Actually, there are two projects. First, there was an audio player. It's nice, but maybe not totally groundbreaking for anyone (it kinda was for me though).
My current project, on the other hand, is definitely very interesting. Not only for me, but for pretty much any software developer out there.
I think I may actually be developing a new programming paradigm here. The project is called Safe Lua.
It's very simple really. I am taking Lua scripts and I put them into what you could call intelligent sandboxes. Sandboxes with flexible connection options, that is.
It sounds simple - and it is really. It's even really simple to implement, at least with a good foundation (Lua, in this case). But once you make this the default, that is, run all your programs in a sandbox, you will notice how many applications which were previously unthinkable - are suddenly possible. You will begin to see scripts in a completely new way. They will begin to live, in ways you probably never imagined possible. (Unless you're as visionary as I am :))
