Very interesting Giulio! I works although altervista at first redirected me and wants me to download a file. Could you spare some time for writing a short demo, what one can expect from this please?

Ok, no way write right markdown :-(
Copy and paste this: http://giuliolunati.altervista.org/r3.html

This is great! If we could get Cyphre to dedicate some time to the WebGL renderer, we'd have a full Rebol web development stack :)

Zipped archive of all required files is only 460k :) Runs on all the servers I've tried so far, with my desktop and phone browsers. Really cool!!

Now Emscripten build can execute remote script -- add it in url: http://giuliolunati.altervista.org/r3.html?http://www.rebol.org/download-a-script.r?script-name=factorial.r

Fantastic work! Is it possible to provide some method(s) for data storage - local storage and/or data sent to a server script?

Thanks! :-) I'll work on it...

Thanks for the effort.
    
May I ask? What can be accomplished by this development, in a sort of practical sense? Just curious. Don't want to miss out.

Danie, my hope is that Cyphre will port Rebol's rendering engine to WebGL, along with View, Draw, and GUI dialects (+ sound, i/o, etc.). That would allow us to build full web apps (including graphics, GUI, etc.), which run on basically any operating system (mobile, etc.), and without installation, using nothing but Rebol code (no HTML, Javascript, CSS, etc.). As bad as the web model is, it is the most ubiquitous platform, and this would allow Rebol developers to deploy apps to that important platform.

Thanks Nick. I really appreciate being able to talk to someone who is also excited about Rebol as I am. As always a prompt answer.
    
It feels like there is so much potential with it. Wish I could help with the low level stuff. No experience, just a endless desire to see all things coming into place. Maybe its time to put more effort into getting a grasp on it.
    
You seemed excited about Emscripten and the progress. Can you please explain why?

A full Rebol web stack would likely grow the community in a big way, which tends to lead to more tools and support. Whether or not that happens, I'd certainly like to be able to deploy Rebol apps to the browser.
    
Doc has a Javascript target planned for Red, so we'll get it ... some day.
