I might not be an old Smalltalker, but I can certainly feel your concerns.
I come from a rich background in numerous development environments &
methodologies, and I KNOW that Smalltalk is a great way to develop programs.
It is the lack of tools, scaffolding, code generation and UI design that
diminishes its appeal. I'm not talking about the already-fantastic code
editing tools, but the fact that things haven't changed much, compared to
It seems to me that Smalltalk could benefit from a "Community Advisory
Board" where people from the community are involved in what's happening, and
have a vote for the future of things. This way we won't have to wait for
nobody, and we'll certainly make the system more alive.
On the Seaside point of view: I had the time to look into
NOLOH<http://www.noloh.com/>lately (Not One Line Of Html), and the
only thing that was in my mind was:
"Gee, Seaside can handle this better". Yet the tools for NOLOH, the use
cases, examples, documentation, and whatever are more appealing. Seaside IS
better, but it needs more tools that accompany it.
