[Pharo-project] Scamper revival

Just checking :)

In that case however, I would like to see a nice(r) way to construct Polymorph interfaces.  Dolphin's MVP framework is very powerful.  One thing that it does not seem to do well is allow domain objects to insert themselves into a GUI; Seaside and Magritte have an advantage there.  I find Magritte a little too helpful, and #description *much* too helpful, meaning that it does so much for me that I forget how things work.

There is probably nothing to stop us from taking a little more control over Magritte descriptions and containers, and IIRC, there is a Polymorph version of Magritte (or is that just wishful thinking??).  Rather than write HTML to feed into what we all agree is a sub-optimal browser, I suggest putting the energy into refining Smalltalk idioms to turn data into a GUI using Polymorph.  The end result should be better user interfaces all around.

The goal is to use it for the new HelpSystem, to display images, layout easily, some colors.
For browsing the web it's crap.

I would much rather see a robust interface to an external browser, for two reasons: (1) scamper was never terribly impressive; (2) Seaside testing.

It's not stable, but it loads google :)

Gofer new
squeaksource: 'LaurentLSandbox';

Scamper openOnUrl: 'http://www.google.com'.

I suppose there's a technique to replace all   _  by  :=
