What services should the initial Context filesystem provide?

Posted in Context, Naiad, Smalltalk, Spoon with tags , , , , , , , , on 19 December 2013 by Craig Latta

The Context¬†app is now mountable as a virtual (WebDAV) filesystem. What should it do? It has a file at the top level called “README.html”, which is obvious enough. What should the README describe? What would you want a newcomer to be able to do from their favorite text editor (or their favorite file-aware programming language)? Browse classes and methods? Resume and suspend object memories? Add and remove code modules? Please share your thoughts, keeping in mind that this is meant to be a minimal system (one can always add code modules to it later).
