Well technically the python part works fine, BUT I also always wanted it to
be friendly to begineers . So nope , its same project. And you are correct
its still focused in coding 3d graphics but I came to realisation that if I
want some people to use it, obviously i dont expect the massive majority to
give up the comforts of python but for those that are curious I have to
provide an enviroment thats is even easier to code in than python is
currently for Blender.
My goal is to provide a development enviroment for Blender addons that is
simple, and easy to use and learn.
So providing a minimal pharo image that is self documented has always being
a dream for Ephestos.
By the way whats the news on the matter of modular pharo image ? Is there
any work done to provide a minimal pharo image ?
I would hate to replicate what is already done.
