A Squeak/Smalltalk VM and Polyglot Programming Environment for the GraalVM.

Getting Started

  1. Download the latest GraalVM distribution for your platform.

  2. Use the GraalVM Updater to install the TruffleSqueak component for your platform:

    $GRAALVM_HOME/bin/gu \
      -C https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hpi-swa/trufflesqueak/main/gu-catalog.properties \
      install smalltalk
  3. You should now be able to run TruffleSqueak:

    $GRAALVM_HOME/bin/trufflesqueak
