Hi Lorenzo,
It's great to know that I am not alone :-)

Let's find out, from Robert, how far we can get with the current ST
implementation, and the possibility of incorporating Amber.

  Hi Andy,

I am in the same situation as you: I am very proficient in ST so, please
keep me informed about your projects and consider me as an other resource
for any kind of projects.

Wow! Robert that is absolutely fantastic.

I don't have anything against javascript, but being able to program in
Smalltalk makes me so happy :-)

OK, a couple of questions:

   1. Is ir feasible for me to develop using Smalltalk, i.e. can I save my
   code? If so, do I save the smalltalk, or the generated javascript
   2. Just in very broad terms, would it be possible to include Amber, or
   is it way too difficult?

We do not use it for main development. I implemented a very simple ST
compiler in 2009. It's by far not so advanced as Amber. You can use it by
loading the module lively.SmalltalkParser (module('lively.SmalltalkParser'
).load();). See this demo world for more info:

As I was digging around the code - trying to find SortedCollection - I
noticed references to a Smalltalk parser.  Does this work? If so, how do I
invoke it?
