TeamWave

TeamWave developed a variety of collaboration tools, using Tcl and Tk extensively.

The standalone product, TeamWave Workplace, featured a Tk-based desktop application offering whiteboard, chat, and a variety of other collaborative tools.

The later web based versions didn't require users to download client software. Though Tk was not used for the GUI (it was Java-applet based, again so that no download is required), Tcl and a Tk-like API were used on the server to drive the user interface.

The various products were written in a mix of Tcl and C, and relied on MetaKit for storage. The web versions also used AOLserver.

The company was acquired in late 2000. The original web site [2 ] has since been shut down, but Mark maintains a retrospective site [1 ] with some additional links and information.
