Sinasi is not a SproutCore IDE
This is hacked-up copy of the excellent Rinari minor mode for Emacs, modified to work with SproutCore instead of Ruby on Rails. Sinasi provides support for quickly switching between models, fixtures, tests, and other files in a SproutCore project. (This is especially necessary in Emacs, since SproutCore uses lots of duplicate filenames.)
For an idea of what Sinasi could become, please see the Rinari screencast. I eagerly welcome patches to help round-out Sinasi.
You need three things to use Sinasi:
jumpmodule. I got this by following the Rinari install instructions.
Some configuration in your
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/sinasi") (require 'sinasi)
With any luck, this might be enough to get you running. I eagerly welcome patches that make Sinasi eager to install!
m to get help for the current mode. You should see something like:

For more information on a specific command, you can run
command-name. You can use
sinasi-clean-tests to work
around stale unit tests in the Test Runner, and you can use
sinasi-bind-finders-with-prefix to map the find commands to
something a bit more convenient.

Note that this includes the full names of classes, which doesn't always work gracefully with M-. (for example, you can't look up "Record" directly, but must edit it to be "SC.Record"). If you have any advice on how to fine-tune this setup, please let me know.
