Re: Beagle plugins in scripting languages


I know that mono can handle multiple languages, but to my
understanding Beagle has to embed the Javascript/IronPython/...
compiler and compile and run all scripts it finds in its plugin
folder. Else a developer has to write a plugin and compile it before
feeding it to Beagle. Maybe someone should write and example
JavaScript plugin and put it on the wiki somewhere. If Beagle can
handle scripted plugins it needs some more marketing.
