Hi Tudor.

This is super impressive.
What's next? Do you plan to implement IDE for writing documents,
navigation, refactorings? (senders, renames should find all places in

> Hi,
> We are happy to announce a new leap of GToolkit Documenter, the tool for
> manipulating live documents directly in the development environment:
> https://github.com/feenkcom/gtoolkit-documenter
> Documenter is part of the second generation GToolkit project, it is based
> on Bloc and works with the latest Pillar. It is mainly developed by Juraj
> Kubelka.
> Attached you can see a preview of how documents look like:
> At its core it offers a live editor for manipulating Pillar documents. The
> interaction happens seamlessly directly in the text editor, and it can be
> combined with different types of previews to serve several classes of use
> cases:
> • code documentation
> • tutorials
> • interactive data notebook
> Code documentation
> ----
> Documenter complements the GToolkit Examples engine to redefine
> code documentation. When practicing example-driven development, examples
> get written as part of the typical development. Once examples exist, they
> can be quickly put together in a document to form documentation. For
> example, the linked picture shows the comment of a class containing a
> visual explanation:
> https://twitter.com/feenkcom/status/973899862482866176
> You can see a live example of documentation by inspecting the following
> snippet:
> GtDocumenter editorForText: BrToggleExamples comment.
> Tutorials:
> ----
> Documenter offers a new experience of writing tutorials for Pharo by
> enabling the creation and embedding of Epicea change sessions directly in
> the document. For example, take a look at the following animation:
> https://twitter.com/feenkcom/status/999975333972541440
> The document shows a method on top, and a change preview at the
> bottom showing both the code and the associated diff to the state from the
> image. Applying the change updates both the change view (no more diff), and
> method preview. This speeds up significantly the process of going through a
> tutorial. Furthermore, given that now the document shows the diff to the
> current image, the reader can safely explore alternative scenario and come
> back to the tutorial at any time without losing the overview.
> The size of the preview can also be adjusted live:
> https://twitter.com/feenkcom/status/1001152789874167808
> https://twitter.com/feenkcom/status/1001407762285375490
> You can see a live tutorial by inspecting:
> IceRepository repositoriesLocation / 'feenkcom'/ 'gtoolkit-examples' /
> 'doc' / 'tutorial' / 'examples-tutorial.pillar’.
> Interactive data notebook:
> ----
> A Documenter document can also be used as an interactive notebook.
> Internally it essentially acts as a playground:
> • it supports defining variables in code snippets, and
> • the execution of code shows an embedded inspector.
> For example:
> https://twitter.com/feenkcom/status/996310432225820672
> https://twitter.com/feenkcom/status/1002851190475026432
> An example, can be seen by inspecting:
> IceRepository repositoriesLocation / 'feenkcom'/ 'gtoolkit' / 'doc' /
> 'gtoolkit' / 'gtoolkit.pillar'.
> As always, please do let us know what you think.
> Enjoy,
