MultiWindow Desktop

Julien Delplanque provided this week a goodie to switch between 
"desktops" - but his initial solution was more or less hiding windows
and not really switching between real Pharo worlds/desktops.

I gave him some tips what could be done on the pharo-user list. Havent heard
from him afterwards.

Now I was able to spend a few hours on this topic myself and implemented 
a full multiple desktop solution myself.

This works in Pharo 5 only (currently) and requires latest VM (at least on Windows)
from files.pharo.org to get the keyboard shortcuts right.

To try:

  Gofer new
    smalltalkhubUser: 'TorstenBergmann' project: 'DesktopManager';
    configuration;
    loadDevelopment.

The goodie has some nice features like keyboard navigation, world menu
integration and even a custom spotter with preview of the desktops.

Quick start:
===========
 - evaluate the above expression in a Pharo 5 image
 - check the world menu "Desktop"
 - you can press CTRL + D and then CTRL + A (= Desktop Add) to add a new desktop 
 - you can press CTRL + D and then CTRL + D (= Desktop Desktop) to open the overview
 - you can press CTRL + D and then CTRL + P (= Desktop Previous) to navigate to the previous desktop
 - you can press CTRL + D and then CTRL + N (= Desktop Next) to navigate to the next desktop

The code is hopefully a good example on how to build a custom spotter, shortcuts, inspector extensions, ...
Additionally all this is described in a new article including screenshots
and a guide on how to use this new goodie:

   https://medium.com/@astares/multiple-desktops-for-pharo-5cbc46f3179f

Actually the article took more time to write than coding but I hope 
it helps explaining Pharo and why it is a power tool. 

Project is on http://www.smalltalkhub.com/#!/~TorstenBergmann/DesktopManager
Article and code is still subject to change.

Have fun
T.

Brick Preview

Hi,
We are happy to announce the first preview version of Brick, a new widget set created from scratch on top of Bloc.
Brick is being developed primarily by Alex Syrel (together with Alain Plantec, Andrei Chis and myself), and the work is sponsored by ESUG. Brick is part of the Glamorous Toolkit effort and will provide the basis for the new versions of the development tools.
Brick’s goal is to provide a beautiful looking widget set, and the default look is based on material design. The widgets are theme-able.
Right now, there exists:
– Label
– Simple button
– Toggle button
– Checkbox
– Radio button
– Window with or without an active title bar that can include various visual actions and info
– Menu
– Beautiful scrollbars that are thin by default and enlarge when the mouse hovers over it
– Scalable list for huge amounts of items with various heights
(The list also allows one for embedding text widgets with in place editing)
The next immediate target is the creation of a new Pager widget (the widget that is behind the current GTInspector).
You can see some screenshots on the official site:
To play with it, you can download a ready-made image:
and, in a Bloc space, you can browse the examples:

We would be happy to hear your feedback.
Cheers,
Doru

WAV parser available

Hi,

I made a WAV parser, so now we can play music in Pharo 🙂

I made an example using OpenAL’s binding from Ronnie.

You can try it with this piece of code :

Gofer new
smalltalkhubUser: ‘MerwanOuddane’ project: ‘WAVParser’;
package: ‘ConfigurationOfWAVParser’;
load.
(Smalltalk at: #ConfigurationOfWAVParser) loadBleedingEdge.

1,2 Million of Scientific Names

Hello there,
This might be useful to others, I wrote a small blog post of FastTable usage with more than 1,2 million of scientific names in one of the most useful bioinformatics curated databases, the NCBI Taxonomy Database.

New Smacc version

Hi All,

I have released SmaCC 2.0.5, aligned on the main SmaCC[1] with a small fix on the Java parser, a few additional parsers (Cucumber), the addition of the Javascript parser, and continuous improvements on the performance and source code coverage of SmaCC generated parsers (with many thanks to John Brant and Don Roberts). The project is available on github[2]
This release is targeted at Pharo4. All parsers should work on Pharo 5, but the GUI doesn’t work. Most parsers come with full AST generation and a dedicated visitor for each, and support for native language refactoring.
To retrieve a specific parser, please use Metacello with the following script:
Metacello new
  baseline: ‘SmaCC’;
  repository: ‘github://ThierryGoubier/SmaCC:v2.0.5’;
  load: ‘SmaCC-Javascript’
(SmaCC-Python, SmaCC-Java, SmaCC-Cucumber, etc…)
On Pharo4 only, to retrieve the full set (gui and tests), please use Metacello with the following expressions:
Metacello new
  baseline: ‘SmaCC’;
  repository: ‘github://ThierryGoubier/SmaCC:v2.0.5’;
  load
Regards,
Thierry

ISO 3166-1

Dear all,
I developed a Pharo ISO 3166-1 wrapper to access objects into a ISO3166-1 model. See the following post for details on installation and usage:
http://80738163270632.blogspot.com.ar/2015/08/new-iso-3166-1-implementation-for-pharo.html

I also wrote some documentation about it: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/103833630/ISO3166.pdf

Hope you find it useful.

Cheers,

Hernán

Lightning JSON-RPC

LtJsonRpc is a lightweight JSON-RPC implementation. It only depends on Zinc and JSON packages.

You can quickly create JSON-RPC services in a few lines of code.

LtJsonRpc provides a handy way for controlling your pharo.image from a command-line tool (curl).
