Lily – visual programming environment

February 13, 2008

Bill Orcutt recently announced the release of Lily. I can’t get into the demos at work so this is just a note to check this out later.

I’m happy to announce the first beta release of Lily, an open source, Mozilla based visual programming environment written in Javascript. Lily is a modular framework that allows you to wire together Javascript library components graphically. Currently there are Lily modules that wrap components from the YUI, JQuery & Scriptaculous libraries. There are also modules that provide access to the file system, browser storage, network & graphics. Lily programs can be
saved as standalone XULRunner applications or as Firefox addons.

Have a look at the demo applications below to get a feel for some of what Lily can do:
