Experimental Web-based verison JavaScript online

All,
SBJavascript
We have put together a Web-enabled (Emscripten-based) version of SmartBody. This version can be run within a web browser, and nearly the entire codebase has been compiled to Javascript by the efforts of Zengrui Wang here at USC over the summer.

You can try out this demo (remember, this is just experimental…). Most of the functionality works (except for sound and some other features). We are still experimenting with best practices for such a web-based application. Here is the link:

http://smartbody.ict.usc.edu/Javascript/smartbodyJS/

The SmartBody/Javascript engine weighs in at about 20 mb, not including data. Performance is reasonable for a small number of characters, and we haven’t yet experimented with more lightweight character data.

SmartBody SVN repository functioning again.

All,

SourceForge has put the SmartBody SVN repositories back online, so they are one again accessible.

SmartBody SVN repository host SourceForge down.

All,

SourceForge.net currently hosts the SmartBody code base, and had some hardware/software failures resulting in the SmartBody SVN repository being inaccessible for the past week. The SmartBody SDK downloads are still accessible, however.

Hopefully, the SVN will be online again soon. If the problem isn’t rectified soon, I’ll make arrangements to move the repository to a different service.
