\o/ Call for contributors! \o/
The core project of Amber has enough resources, but:
- the Helios IDE (https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/helios), as well as
- examples (https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/amber-examples), and
- documentation (https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/amber-documentation)
would need some of your care.
Thank you very much!
(see CONTRIBUTING.md for further details)
- Amber features an IDE with a Class browser, Workspace, Transcript, a ReferencesBrowser supporting senders/implementors and class references, basic Inspector and even a beginning of a Debugger and a unit TestRunner.
- Pharo Smalltalk is considered as the reference implementation.
- Amber includes a canvas to generate HTML, like Seaside
For the installation to work, you need to have installed
git (in Windows, use Git for Windows and select "Run Git from Windows Command Prompt" and "Checkout Windows-style, commit Unix-style" installation options).
For UNIX-based OS (Linux distibutions, FreeBSD, ...) do
npm config set prefix=~/npm export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/npm/bin"
to have the installation in a local subdirectory in order to avoid the otherwise necessary
sudo installation of Amber. The export line needs to be added to the ~/.profile file as well so that after a new login the path is set.
