What is a REDS file?

A REDS file is a source code file written in the Red/System programming language, which is a low-level dialect of the Red programming language. It stores code in the Red/System syntax, which is similar to the Rebol programming language and human-readable.

Nenad Rakočević developed the Red programming language to improve upon the Rebol programming language. The language was introduced in 2011 and with the intention of it being a full-stack language where a developer could create the front-end and back-end of software.

NOTE: REDS files store the Red/System language, whereas .RED files contain source code in the Red syntax, which is a high-level programming language

How do I open a REDS file?

You can open and edit a REDS file with various source code editors, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code with the Red extension (multiplatform) and GitHub Atom (multiplatform).

You can also open and edit REDS files with a plain text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (bundled with Windows) or Apple TextEdit (bundled with macOS), but they do not provide helpful source code editing features.

You can compile the source code in REDS files with the Red console by selecting File → Run....
