Hi Mariano,
could easily be done, use CodeMirror which is supporting also Smalltalk

I already updated WABrowser to support it, see my post a few days ago on
If you browse the diff in Seaside of my MCZ version you will find
anything you require. Basically it is just a file library with the codemirror
javascript files (reduced to the minimum) and the syntax definition file for

Betreff: [Pharo-dev] Web-based smalltalk editor with syntax highlighting?

Hi guys,
I have a Seaside app running in Pharo/Gemstone and I want to provide a simple "code editor" which would basically be a Smalltalk closure. The user should be able to edit this. Then a button to save it and either display a message or get the compiled method so that I can then do what I want.  I would also like this editor to provide Syntax highlighting.
I know Seaside has WABrowse but this is much more than what I need and has no Syntax highlighting. 
Is there some tool around? Maybe Amber?
