This is the wiki for triplescripts.org — committed to software tooling for the out-crowd. To learn more about triple scripts and the triple scripts ecosystem, check the existing material on triplescripts.org, have a look at the why and how of triple scripts, or read on.

Applications

What triple scripts are well-suited for:

  • portable, no-fuss build scripts
  • auditable, offline software security fobs
  • file format decompressors, explorers, manipulators, etc
  • ... and other utilities that perform limited file IO (particularly suited for one or more file inputs with zero or one file outputs, in the vein of programming language compilers)

What triple scripts are not suited for:

  • networked applications
  • ... and many, many other classes of traditional applications
