Coral Scripting

September 27, 2011 9:03:15.898

Pharo based scripting is coming along:

Coral makes it possible to write shell scripts with Pharo. It’s actually several parts:

  • A wrapper shell script
    • To seamlessly invoke the VM from the command line.
  • A tiny syntax extension
    • Smalltalk has no syntax to declare classes and methods outside of the code browser. Coral’s syntax extension allows to declare classes, methods, and to evaluate code, all in a simple text file.
  • A lighter, prepared image
    • The Coral image is configured to launch quickly, without a graphical interface, and is preloaded with packages useful for scripting, like access to the system’s filesystem and processes.
