Adding Useful Smalltalk Methods to QuickSilver
February 16, 2011
I have added several standard Smalltalk methods to QuickSilver and a few new ones:
<Number> range works like “range” in Python – it produces an array filled with numbers.
<Array> list is a convenience method – it lists an array to the Transcript.
Here is an example of how to list the squares of odd numbers between 1 and 100 in reverse order.
select:[:x | x odd])
collect: [:x | x squared])
QuickSilver is real Smalltalk:
— smaller footprint then jQuery
— faster than Squeak
— MIT license
— targets browsers, iPhones, iPads, Androids, etc
The project is now only 17 days old – it is just getting started…
