Helios: Integrated documentation

Nicolas Petton
Hey guys,

Yet another screenshot to show the brand new integrated documentation of Helios.
There's still room for improvements, but I think it's a great step forward!

Cheers,
nico

Nice

Just something that has been bugging me, from a UX point of view I don't understand why the Instance/Class toggle - at least its not a radio button anymore :) - sits under the class pane, when it actually changes the view of the protocol and method panes.  Wouldn't something like this make more sense?

I kept it as it traditionally is in Smalltalk browsers :)
Now IMHO you are right, but somehow, because I'm used to see it this way, it feels weird to me.

I noticed :)  I know that the Smalltalk browser hasn't really changed since the 70's or 80's and it doesn't help to get young blood on board.   Out of scope here but Nautilus hasn't made it much better from a UX pov either

May be Somebody is too "Squeak" =)

If I am not mistaken, some Smalltalk implementation in the past had a
radio button.
I would not mind seeing a radio button.

Re: Helios: Integrated documentation

state should be provided

for example radio buttons or tabs

visually grouping categories and methods is what makes sense the most (visual disambiguation)

I'd prefer no switch or button at all.

Just have the class method categories listed below the instance method categories in the same panel. Maybe color code them as different, bold them, and/or have a strong visual divider bar between the two. 

This follows Jef Raskin's UI design principle of "minimal number of modes".  
"The Humane Interface".

It also makes it more "flickable" for touch devices.

I wouldn't do that. The confusion would be huge.

I think I can understand why it was choosen to be under the class list, because in fact it is a separate hierarchy.

However, I would take a VisualWorks or even a Dolphin Smalltalk approach with this.

Dolphin uses the radio button proposed.

Hello Nico

I just realized (11 months later while I actually start using Helios)
that Helios understands Markdown

*italic*
**bold*

       code expression

in the class documentations.

Amazing how neat the documentation looks. Congratulations to this feature.

+1, I endorse Esteban about this. Dolphin's productivity was unparalleled.

I'm not a fan of radio buttons but they are okay for this one.

Here, in the screenshot below, I've used tabs because they disambiguate both, the class/instance side on methods and categories (an obvious one that I've never saw in any smalltalk IDE yet)
