Seaside's Object-Oriented View Source #

by why in inspect

So the world is in upheaval over their previous web frameworks and we can all cite examples of vocal folks who are hastily denouncing their five to ten year careers in favor of newer razzle-dazzle. I have considered pulling just such a maneuvre to align myself with Seaside, the continuations-based framework for Smalltalk, but I know it would be an act of pure sensationalism and not of real pressing need.

But I might be wrong. And I intend to watch Ian Prince’s Learning Seaside blog, which follows his construction of various small projects and wiki hackings for Seaside. You might find interesting his recent post concerning Seaside halos, a toolbar for viewing and editing the source and CSS for application components through your browser.

Which saves you the time of hunting through directories and possibly fiddling with the wrong code. There the source is, paperclipped to its product.

Tried Borges? It’s Eric’s port of Seaside to Ruby (or, at least, based on Seaside).

Does this mean that RedHanded will again change names in the near future?

SmallHanded? ShortHanded? AllHandsOnDeck?

Hmm… I wonder whether Borges can be used with ActiveRecord and possibly other Rails bits?

Men: it should be able to, no worries, though I think Wee is probably more solid than borges—borges is a direct port, Wee is a conceptual port, iirc.

OTOH —I think “denouncing … careers” is a bit absurd. If you have a career around a single piece of software, sure, but most people don’t =)
