CrawLogo: empowering end-users to program the Web
2004 (English)In: IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing,2004, 2004, 134-136 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In order to create
applications that programmatically use the Web as an expressive
medium, the current choice is largely between conventional
programming languages that are difficult to learn and use -- and
less expressive alternatives. In order to address this issue, we
have been developing CrawLogo, a Logo-inspired programming
environment in which Web-elements are programmable, body-syntonic
"Crawltures" that exist within a 5-dimensional Crawlture Geometry.
In this paper we briefly summarize related work, describe the
CrawLogo environment, some sample applications, and the initial
response of end-user programmers who have successfully used it to
build Web-enabled applications. We conclude with a discussion of
some insights into the larger question of empowering end-user
programming of the Web, the development of a Crawlture Geometry,
and future research challenges.
