A description of the default Context workflow.

Well, it took a while to evolve into clarity, but here it is…

You get Context by downloading a ZIP file from the net. You install Context by unzipping the ZIP file and putting the resulting all-in-one app folder where you want it to be. You start Context with a simple platform-dependent gesture (on Mac, you double-click the app).

This starts a history memory. This memory can…

  • …speak with web browsers. It presents a simple control interface for starting and stopping the other memories in the app (called “subject memories”), and discovering other memories on the net.
  • …speak with FTEs (Favorite Text Editors). It presents itself as a filesystem via a WebDAV server, so that a person can use their Favorite Text Editor to control the subject memories, edit classes and methods, and evaluate expressions.
  • …speak with the subject memories, to keep track of their development changes.
  • …speak with remote memories, to obtain their modules.

This is available in Context 3 alpha 5, which I plan to release in time for the Camp Smalltalk event in Gent, Belgium on 24 August 2012, ahead of the European Smalltalk Users Group conference the next week.

  2. Starting Spoon gives you kind of Smalltalk system you can interact with using web browsers and text editors?
