All MVC All The Time

9 July, 2012

Smalltalk-80 started out using a graphics system called MVC (model view controller) and evolved to use a system from the Self language called Morphic. For those interested in using a Squeak image a little closer to the original Smalltalk-80, two images have appeared. Both are a little closer to the Smalltalk system described in Adele Goldberg’s blue book, which is more formally called Smalltalk: The Language And Its Implementation. Sungjin Chun has created an all MVC image that is 5.7M and can be used for web development with Seaside. Stefan Marr has an even smaller all MVC image at 1.7M. Both are fun to play with and make an educational contrast to contemporary Squeak images.

    Squeak 1.1 was my first introduction to Smalltalk and “Inside Smalltalk, Vol 1&2” helped me learn the basics.

    Having the opportunity to work in a Smalltalk-80 image is a great way to develop an understanding of the expressiveness and power of Smalltalk and to develop an appreciation of the tremendous advancements that Smalltalk continues to pioneer.

    Thanks for making these images available. I look forward to working in them.
