(01 Aug) Welcome to curlr
Thank you for visiting curl.org. This is intended to become a resource for Curl programmers interested in building applications with the various web apis, starting with Flickr.
This is the companion site for the open source curlr code development, currently residing in the curlr Google repository and the curlr Yahoo group. Here you'll find my blog articles decribing the use and availability of the libraries as I develop them, some example applets and toys and the code to go with them. Hopefully there'll be something of sufficient interest to encourage you to write some applications using the Curl language.
Latest Applets10 August: Here's an older experiment I tried for an aquarium using some of Craig Reynolds rules for flocking. →
06 August: The first applet based on the Curlr api is a simple viewer of the Flickr interestingness list. You'll need the Curl runtime, of course, and then you need to grant this site privilege to run the applet. →
Site News12 September: I'm changing embedded Curl applets into links ... →
03 September: The Code page has (finally) been updated with downloads
31 August: All Curl applets on this site now require v5.0 of the Curl RTE.
04 August: I've created curlr an open source project at Google. →
01 August: curlr.org has an ironic new coat of paint. →
(14 Sep) CurlrObject - Curl RTE detection
Once you've taken the trouble to write a Curl applet, there's a good chance you'll want to include it in a web page; at that point you'll need some way to detect the Curl RTE and check its version on different platforms and browsers.
If you've ever included a Flash movie on a page this will be a familiar issue to you. The question of how best to embed the Flash plugin has a long history - the various browsers have made plugin detection notoriously awkward, but over the years a standard practice of sorts, has developed to the point where you can find numerous helpful scripts, and Adobe now provide a Flash Player Detection kit along with guidelines for detection.
