System Browser feature request

Louis LaBrunda
Hi All,

In the System Browser with a category selected it would be nice to see not only the classes
defined as in the category but classes with methods added for the category.  This would allow
one to see classes extended by the category.  Different colors or highlighting to distinguish
them would also be nice.

Sorry if I'm not using the correct terms for the browser and category.

I have no idea how the Squeak browsers work nor how much effort this feature might take, so I
hope I'm not asking for too much.  It goes without saying, I don't think I know Squeak well
enough to tackle this myself.

Lou

I've wanted to see that before, too.  There is a work-around by
browsing the package from the Monticello browser.  In there, you can
see all the method extensions by class.

Re: System Browser feature request

this Monticello trick is very nice to know

Dolphin Smalltalk has this in all the Class browsers and it is very nice
and you can use it in your programming to make
system wide cross package groupings or changes

it is probably easy to do in Squeak Pharo

just using a script 

it would be cool to know what that script is

just getting a sequence of Methods or method names would be good

self systemNavigation alImplementorsOf: #foo

answers a sequence of MethodReference which respond to #actualClass.  So...

(self systemNavigation alImplementorsOf: #foo) do:

     mr actualClass organization
        classify: mr selector
        under: '*MyPackage-daylight robbery']

A hint is to inspect tool buttons that do things you'd like to do by script and trace through their implementation, ideally in the debugger.  Remember that in a self-implemented system everything will be accessible at the language level.  Just practice exploring a bit.

Another hint is to use MethodFinder or Message Names.  I use the latter to program/browse across package and class boundaries.  Message Names takes s semicolon separated list of patterns so you can type things like
    *senders*;*implementors*
to find all selectors and methods in the system that match either of those.

The system is so large now that this exploration is much more difficult than when it had 2,200 methods; it now has that number of classes and metaclasses.  But it is still possible and fruitful.  And looking at the core classes like Behavior, ClassDescription and CompiledMethod will provide you with tools you can use.

System Browser feature request

Louis LaBrunda
Hi Marcel,

Thanks for the change set.  Unfortunately when I try to file it in the method below gets a DNU
sending: self environment.  It seems Browser is missing the #environment method.

I'm using a Squeak 5.1 image.  I'm willing to upgrade it and played around trying to do that
but no luck.

What am I missing?

Lou

hierarchicalClassList
        "classNames are an arbitrary collection of classNames of the system.
        Reorder those class names so that they are sorted and indended by inheritance"
       
        | classes flatTree |
       
        self flag: #performance. "mt: Creating the hierarchy is *really slow* for the full class
list. Skip it for now."
        self selectedSystemCategory = SystemOrganizer allCategory
                ifTrue: [^ self defaultClassList].
               
        classes := self defaultClassList collect: [:sym | self environment classNamed: sym].
        flatTree := OrderedCollection new.
       
        self
                flattenHierarchyTree: (self createHierarchyTreeOf: classes)
                on: flatTree
                indent: ''.
       
        Browser showExtensionClasses ifTrue: [
                | extensionClasses extensionFlatTree |
                extensionClasses := self extensionClasses collect: [:ea | ea theNonMetaClass].
                extensionFlatTree := OrderedCollection new.
                self
                        flattenHierarchyTree: (self createHierarchyTreeOf: extensionClasses)
                        on: extensionFlatTree
                        indent: ''.
                extensionFlatTree := extensionFlatTree collect: [:ea |
                        ea asText
                                addAttribute: (TextColor color: (self userInterfaceTheme extensionClassColor ifNil:
[Color gray: 0.75]));
                                yourself].
                flatTree addAll: extensionFlatTree].
               
        ^ flatTree

Hi Marcel,

    it's a tangent I know but I'm proud of it ;-). This method:

!Browser class methodsFor: 'preferences' stamp: 'mt 1/20/2018 09:36'!

showExtensionClasses: aBoolean


ShowExtensionClasses := aBoolean.! !


is unnecessary.  Delete it and try to change the preference.

Hi,

there have been extensions to environments-related interfaces in the
trunk since 5.1. You can replace "self environment" by "self
selectedEnvironment" (in Browser and its subclasses), which should
make it work in 5.1.

Kind regards,
Jakob

I like the idea but Wholly Khao does it slow things down horribly!

A Spyon of PackageInfo>>extensionClasses is a bit scary.  3% of time just to hash ISO88597ClipboardInterpreter class ? Another 7+% for other hashing? Using ProtoObject>>withAllSubclassesDo: interactively seems a bit crazy too.

A little code improvement in a few places ought to make it usable though

But if you use the preferences browser it doesn't need the setter.  It can access the variable by analyzing the getter method.

Cool. No really :D
But how do I set that during image provisioning without the setter?

Hi Eliot,

I do need the setter to update all existing browsers. Yet, that side effect is not in the change set at the moment. :-)

Hi Louis,

here is a change set for Squeak 5.1.

Best,
Marcel

Am 20.01.2018 19:40:55 schrieb Jakob Reschke <[hidden email]>:

Hi,

there have been extensions to environments-related interfaces in the
trunk since 5.1. You can replace "self environment" by "self
selectedEnvironment" (in Browser and its subclasses), which should
make it work in 5.1.

Kind regards,
Jakob
