I loaded Pier into a pristine Squeak 3.10.2 image using the "Universe" - Install
"Pier version current". The installation was smooth.

And I found your two examples on the class side of PRPpierFrame

They are very helpful.

And on 
there is a pier wiki with some useful information and links. If I toggle the
halos I see how the page is composed of widgets.

For the time being I think I will just browse the code and experiment with
creating "structures" as in 

PRPpierFrame class>>
    "Pier can be easily used as a component within any Seaside application, this
is just an example of a dumb wiki. To see this example browse to
/seaside/examples/examplebrowser and select the receiver class."

    ^ self on: (PRContext kernel: (PRKernel new
        name: 'Pier';
        root: (PRPage new
            title: 'Pier Example';
            contents: 'Pier can be easily used as a component within any Seaside
application (maybe you should adapt the style-sheets), this is just an example
of a dumb and non-persistent wiki.';

As there is a Pier mailing list I will ask further questions on that list if
they arise.

Kind regards
