STicky is a pluggable real-time evaluator and/or translator workspace
aimed to learn languages. For a quick overview please take a look at
the presentation video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9uUIEaGyoU

The Smalltalk evaluator could be useful in learning courses or for
newbies typing expressions, but other translators/evaluators may help
with more advanced usage, it all depends of the source and target
languages you're using. Some default external translators, which does
the real job, were included :

Smalltalk to JavaScript (ST2JS by Diego Gomez Deck)
Smalltlak to Java (Smalltalk2Java by Alexandre Bergel)
Smalltalk to SQL (ROE by Avi Bryant)
Smalltalk to AST nodes (Marcus Denker et al)
HTML validator (Todd Blanchard)
JSON to Smalltalk (Tony Garnock-Jones et al)
(...contact me if you want to add your translator in the release, a
facility to automatic installation of translators is provided)

You can easily plug translators and the workspace will update the
current contents dynamically inside a sticky-like dialog or a fixed
pane, the updater interface was decoupled to make possible other kinds
of widgets too, but this is a bit experimental.
