Vorple for Inform 7 has just been released. It’s a customized Parchment interpreter and a set of extensions for Inform 7 that let the story file and the browser communicate between each other, which in turn lets us do all kinds of cool stuff with the user interface. Some of that is demonstrated in the example story.
The web site hasn’t been updated yet, but the relevant links are in the announcement: vorple-if.com/outgribe/2012/vorp … 7-out-now/
There’s been a couple of posts here lately asking for the kind of features Vorple provides, so I decided it’s time to release even though there’s an embarassing list of things not quite there yet. The extensions are also just a small set of what’s planned for the future. Bug reports and feature suggestions are always welcome.
