> Developer friendly environment
> ------------------------------
>                 Key: SQ-290
>                 URL: http://tracker.squeakland.org/browse/SQ-290
>             Project: squeakland
>          Issue Type: Feature Set
>          Components: etoys
>            Reporter: Hilaire
>             Fix For: etoys 4.1
> What about making Etoys more developers friendly, especially when we want them to stick to Etoys.
> More likely we will attract developers interested by the Etoys concepts but without prior knowledge to Smalltalk. Giving a good felling to the developer when they first try to look underneath is important.
> A few possible improvement I see:
> - better choice for the font, or even a better font rendering, the existing rendering is fuzzy and very far from today standard (better solution are already existing)
> - better coloring in the source code, the current coloring scheme is unusable, and I suspect nobody use it, numbers are rendered with a clear color on a clear background (better solution are already existing).
> - the _ assignment (I can imagine how weird it can look for developers)
> - make Etoys usable to develop and to deploy on top of it extension to experiment with new ICT paradigm for education 
> - a few refactoring tools will not hurt (better solution are already existing)
> Comments?
