Quick Note : I just had a revolution in my thinking, triggered by Enso but influenced by several other recent trends. You write Enso “extensions” as XML-RPC servers sitting on your local machine, register them with Enso and it calls them using XML-RPC. I tried the example from the tutorial and it’s very cute and […]
