Limiting the Browser View and Projects

January 8, 2010 10:40:25.851

After doing today's screencast, I got to thinking about the older idea of Smalltalk projects. Squeak still has them, I think - you could create a "project" and get a set of tools that opened in a pre-defined way. Taking the idea of a limited browser view and projects together though, and I think you could build a lightweight project browser. Consider the idea:

Instead of just "select some packages and limit the view", what if you could select some packages, give that selection set a name, and then save that name? Then, instead of having to recreate a selection set as you worked in an image, you could bounce between named "projects". Sound like a reasonable idea?
