The Fluency program allows people with brilliant ideas and limited programming experience to develop and release working programs without having to look at code. It uses widgets, developed by enthusiastic volunteer programmers, that connect to each other and send data, creating a working program. Some examples of widgets would be buttons, text fields, calculators and other practical widgets. The amazing thing about this project is that it is a growing, open-source collaboration that has been in development since 2004 by the brilliant computer science students at Indiana University.
It can be used with windows, mac and linux operating systems.
The documentation can be found in the knownspace wiki here.
We offer tutorials for programmers and non-programmers on our resources page.
When Fluency starts up it contains a canvas with a new application. With this new application you can go from building a simple server for online chatting to developing a sophisticated web mailing system. In order to do that, you can use the many tools provided by Fluency to personalize your creations. For more information on Fluency you can visit our Wiki.
Fluency is at the point that widget creation is not yet allowed. You can, however take advantage of the many tools and widgets supplied by Fluency to develop your own programs. Please keep up with updates about widget creation in the future.
