In case anyone finds this useful, this is the DoIt that has worked for me to load (& start) Seaside in Squeak 5.2:

Installer ensureRecentMetacello.

(Smalltalk at: #Metacello) new
 repository: 'github://SeasideSt/Seaside:master/repository';

(Installer ss3 project: 'WebClient')
	install: 'WebClient-Seaside-Adaptor'.
"Optionally use the control panel to add adaptor, start and to set encoding"
"WAControlPanel open."

"do the above but without using the GUI"
((Smalltalk at: #WAWebServerAdaptor) port: 8080) 
	codec: ((Smalltalk at: #GRCodec) forEncoding: 'utf-8'); 

The codec is optional – but the above allows me to put emojis into my components, like:

	^ WideString fromPacked: 128397

renderContentOn: html
	html text: self crayon.

Thanks to everybody whose hard work has kept this going!
