On-line Amber development environment

tfleig
Hi Amber-group,

As many others have said, I find Amber Smalltalk really exciting.

I was looking for a way to incorporate Amber in my current activities. I wanted an on-line Amber environment that would work without a local node.js server -- on my iPad for example. The result is ScrewtopDb Amberstore.

ScrewtopDb Amberstore is a free service that allows you to work online and persist your Amber categories in the cloud and have them be there the next time you bring Amber up.  (ScrewtopbDb is a product in development that seemed to be a good fit for Amber persistence.)

The ScrewtopDb Amberstore service is really just a substitute for the commit code currently available to save categories to a local node.js server. It commits to the ScrewtopDb Amberstore service and automatically loads your new and changed categories the next time you visit your Amber URL. (Just don't forget to commit your categories before you close your browser!)

When you first visit the ScrewtopDb Amberstore website, you will be presented with an online Amber IDE. The first time you try to commit a category, you will be presented with a login dialog from which you can register for a free ScrewtopDb Amberstore account (no email verification or anything -- it all happens online). After a brief wait while your account is set up you will be re-directed to your own ScrewtopDb Amberstore URL into which your committed category will have been inserted. Thereafter, you can use that URL to access your personal Amber IDE in which your committed categories will always be available. (When you delete a category by removing all its classes, the category is removed from your environment as well.)

There are instructions for how to access a stored category's files directly via a ScrewtopDb URL in the introductory text presented in the IDE.

ScrewtopDb is intended to facilitate sharing of information and it should be an easy enhancement to Amberstore to allow users to access each others environments in a read-only fashion and copy other users' categories into their own environment should that be desirable.

I have tested it with Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. It might not work in IE, but as Rhett Butler said in Gone With the Wind: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."

No guarantees, but it has been working well for me.

All feedback is welcome.

Cheers,
TF

very cool, for one just to have your categories come back as God intended is great. Would be cool if "unloading" was supported i.e. not deleting or perhaps as an alternative incorporating into an SCM.

I agree. This is sort of a first step I guess.

Oops.

I discovered a problem in Amberstore registration. Anyone who registered an account before receiving this email should
  1. click on the Edit HTML button at the top of the IDE,
  2. change all instances of the string "tfleig" to the username you chose when you registered,
  3. click on the Save button, and 
  4. refresh the page.
If you find no instances of tfleig in the HTML, then you registered after the problem was corrected and no action is required.

I apologize for the oversight.

Cheers,
TF

Is it possible to have persistable objects in class variables?
So we will have full smalltalk image illusion

Yeah, we were crazy after ESUG :) Things needed to calm down a bit!

But with packages, documentation tools (more later) and bug fixes, I
think we'll get a good 0.9.1 release!
