[Newbies] Is there something new coming after Morph?

Hey Marcus,

There are currently three things available for doing GUI, there is Morph,
Tweak, MVC and wxWidgets.  For the web there is seaside.

I can't tell you much about morph, I've played with it some and although
it's fun I don’t consider myself expert enough to help.  Take a look on the
list archives about morph tutorials for more info:

Tweak is a major rewrite of Morph http://tweak.impara.de/ but it's not ready
yet but it's worth looking at esp if it ends up being a major part of
croquet http://www.opencroquet.org/index.html .

Here's a nice piece about MVC


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model-view-controller is a nice explanation of

I'm sure others could help with MVC demos.

For wxSqueak see: http://www.wxsqueak.org/ 

And I suggest using http://wxglade.sourceforge.net/  for building the UI.

For seaside which is a web continuations framework and UI builder see:
http://www.seaside.st/ .  Seaside is really cool!

That's a lot of info so if you have questions feel free to ask.  It's
difficult to address the question what you should use.  I believe that most
Squeakers prefer Morph to MVC.  There doesn't seem to be a consensus about
if Tweak will replace Morph, Seaside is great for the web, and I like
wxWidgets for native look and feel.

Don't forget there are commercial products IBM's visualAge product, and
Cincom's VisualWorks.  The UI builder for VW is very nice I was very happy
with how flexible it is, the UI for visualAge is a bit funky with some
strange connectors but once you get it its very cool too.  Some people swear
by IBM's UI builder and the integration with Eclipse is a nice plus.  But
that's not Squeak so it's beyond your question.

I hope that helps!

Happy Coding,
