The ActivePapers Pharo edition
The Pharo edition of ActivePapers focuses on the documentation and user interface aspects of communicating computational science. It is based on the Glamorous Toolkit, an innovative development environment for Pharo.
This package is work in progress. It is complete enough to produce computational documents, and it contains a realistic example (class
InfluenzaLikeIllnessInFrance). However, there is not much protection against messing up such a document using incorrectly used or incompletely implemented editing operations. Also, persistence of the datasets in an ActivePaper is not yet implemented.
You can install ActivePapers either into a plain Pharo 8 image, or into a pre-built GToolkit image. The latter is strongly recommended, as installation on top of plain Pharo requires downloading all of GToolkit first, and that can take a lot of time. In either case, install ActivePapers by running the following code snippet in a playground:
Metacello new baseline: 'ActivePapers'; repository: 'github://activepapers/activepapers-pharo/src'; onConflictUseLoaded; load.
After installation, there will be an "ActivePapers" entry in the world menu (in the Morphic universe). It gives access to the package's documentation and to a catalog of all the ActivePapers available in the image (initially the examples).
