Proposal #1
Name Mark Tarver
Title GUI to Shen
Description A graphics interface initially based on TCL/tk to CL. The project would allow type secure communication to TCL/tk in Shen notation (no low level string passing). We would expand this GUI to other platforms. This project would serve as a template for Shenturions interested in connecting different graphical language (e.g Swing, JFX) to Shen. This is one of the extended Shen projects.
