I was fairly proficient in it and had a fairly medium size hobby project in Inform 7 a long time ago back when Inform 7 was new. I stopped working in Inform because I lost faith it was ever going to be floss. For lengthy background on the history of Inform and it’s licensing dillemas see https://zork.net
Graham Nelson has however announced that he is in the final stages of cleaning up his code for release under the Artistic 2.0 license. In fact it looks like it might be coming this fall. See: A New Hope | Inform 7
I adore interactive fiction and really admired the hell out of Inform 7. Ive kinda been waiting on this for a long time. For many years if you searched the net for Inform 7’s floss status several of my own screennames would be the first results.
I wanna relearn it and hit the ground running when the floss release lands.
Read enough of the creative commons “Inform 7 Handbook” to get started.
Get the IDE running in Mageia. This has challenges see:
- GNOME Inform 7 6M62 on Fedora 29 (& other recent distros?) - Inform 6 and 7 - The Interactive Fiction Community Forum
- 0001997: Gnome IDE should use a newer webkit - MantisBT
