QuickSilver Tools in Development

QuickSilver Tools in Development

Above is an image of some of the QuickSilver tools in development.

Some of the tools now being developed are:

  • ClassBrowser
  • ClassHierarchyBrowser
  • Object Inspectors
  • Source Code Browser
  • GUI Designer
  • Peer-to-Peer Chat
  • Server Console
  • Account Manager
  • Database Record Designer
  • Database Browser

The source code browser should be ready today and will provide a convenient means of examining the latest Smalltalk libraries. You can also view both the Smalltalk and JavaScript sources in the online project repository at http://code.google.com/p/quicksilver-smalltalk/source/browse.

There are now a number of useful Smalltalk classes that completely encapsulate the underlying JavaScript.

For example, here is how you can open a SourceBrowserWindow and place some text in a panel:

W := SourceBrowserWindow open.
W content rightChild text: 'Hello World!'

Just plain Smalltalk code.

And it will be increasingly easy to build, deploy and maintain applications as the tools evolve.
