11 - Conclusion
Tclkit and Starkits are all about deployment - they lower the barriers to building easy to download, install and upgrade cross-platform applications
And they are an ideal way to deliver both open source and commercial applications implemented in Tcl/Tk. Using Starkits there need no longer be a distinction between source, packaged, deployed or installed applications.
Starkits fit in naturally with Tcl/Tk development practices - allowing developers to work with familiar tools and paradigms. And they make deployment “safer” because it becomes part of the development process - not an afterthought with its own hassles and testing requirements.
So the Starkit story is that deployment has been solved.
And because of this Tcl/Tk has the potential to realise the elusive goal of "write once, simple deployment everywhere", perhaps more so than any other language platform currently available.
