Collaborative Web Programming

P: n/a
I'm working to create a standard for incorporating
foriegn Javascript "include files" into web pages.

Please see the following for more information:

Also, try looking at another rendition of the same
technology at:

http://metamind.us/metapage

or join the MetaMind at http://metamind.us/join

and you can transform virtually any normal web page
( except framesets ) into a MetaPage.

One might say that this technology should be included
in the Browser, or in the web site, but both of
these methods are inferior to including it in
the window.name property and implementing it
dynamically with JavaScript.

See how this is done at:

http://qualitychoices.us/om.js

Your comments and suggestions for how we can form a
standard for the window.name property and its application
to share the location of JavaScript include files with
web sites so that those files can be dynamically
incorporated into the site.

I have already created the technology to encode ANY
textual data into the window name. There is a 4k limit
but that's quite sufficient to have a complete user
profile available to every web site you visit. This
is already being done when you use the MetaMind.
You can go into the MetaMind with the free demo

I'm not sure how useful it would be -- but I'm willing to be convinced.

I actually worked on something similar about two years ago and then
abandoned it. In my case I used an asynchronous messaging scheme in the
status bar: you could pass data and even functions from one server to
another (as long, of course, as both were cooperating on the deal). I've
still got the code tucked away someplace...

It worked great in IE6, IE 5, Mozilla and others... but just would not work
at all in IE 5.5.

Still... in the end we found another way to do the task (in our case our
company was bought by a larger company and they wanted the two sites to
share script resources across the two domains).

Having a (standardized) browser-based ability to share code would could be
VERY nice in some situations. Something as simple as a "universal" scope
would do: anything placed, explicitly, in the the scope would be accessible
by script from any site. Adding in an ability to limit such access to
specific domains would be even better.
