Discussion:
[ANN] Styled Text Editor for Cuis 4.0 Smalltalk
(too old to reply)

Dear Smalltalkers,

I am very happy to announce that the Styled Text Editor for the brand new Cuis 4.0 is now available on GitHub [1]. The Styled Text Editor was first presented by me at last year's ESUG in Edinburgh [2]. Thanks to ESUG the presentation was recorded [3].

The Styled Text Editor is a framework for rich text editing using styles as known from popular word processors like Apple Pages or Microsoft Word. It features paragraph and character styles, allowing easy text formatting using styles only. It is intended for applications where users need to work with good looking rich text in a simple and fast way.

Rich text commonly refers to text with formatting information like different fonts, sizes, alignments, and emphasis. To make editing as simple as possible instead of individual formatting information end users apply styles to parts of the text. Editing is made fast by keyboard shortcuts for text navigation, selection, and styles selection. Where possible the feel of widely used rich text editors is supported.

It includes many features like
- numbered and bulleted list paragraph styles
- support for images
- multiple level undo and redo
- text completion using various glossaries including a dictionary of English with about 166.000 words
- RTF clipboard (on OS X VMs with the ClipboardExtendedPlugin)

The Styled Text Editor is developed in Cuis with the plan to eventually port it to Squeak and Pharo. The development of the Styled Text Editor inspired many changes to Cuis itself, and It is the first package to use the brand new DVCS based development process for external packages for Cuis 4.0.

The idea and funding was provided by me, Bernhard Pieber and my company Software Generation. The implementation was done by Juan Vuletich, the mastermind behind Cuis. Thanks Juan for the close cooperation. It was and still is great fun to work with you.

We are looking forward to feedback from you. Fork it on GitHub [1], create issues and send us pull requests. ;-)

Cheers,
Bernhard Pieber

Hey all!
It doesn't really matter who started it. We all like to come over this. It can happen and the only thing making it worse is to talk about the fact that it happened.
Yeah, I don't care either about who started it - I am just tired of it :).
May be other people are tired by other aspects?
No? I guess so.
I don't follow. What do you mean?
We have a vision and people can help making it true or not. :)
But our goal is to support business emerge (with our little mean) but we try hard.
I know and I am all behind it, 100%. The thing is, this "history" behind
the Squeak/Pharo divide is still lurking between the lines and I
(personally) am tired of it.

For example, I often get the feeling that my posts to this list raise
replies as if I am some kind of "outsider", just because I was heavily
involved in Squeak earlier or something.

I am a Pharoer too. I may be more of a bystander these days than a
contributor (since I don't have a lot of time to spend) - but I am only
using *Pharo* these days, not Squeak. Yup, sorry Squeak, but it is just
the reality. I *still* wish the best for Squeak though, and all other
open source or commercial efforts in the Smalltalk arena.

I think it would be nice if we all could be a little bit more positive
and inclusive, especially the people who are prominent in our
(overlapping) communities - you set the example. :)

I really don't see any gain in Pharo spewing negatives over Squeak,
Squeak is still the inheritage of Pharo and I for one am proud of the
friendliness of the Smalltalk community. Nor of course see I any gain in
spewing in the other direction, it goes both ways.

Now, I suspect this light criticism wrapped up in smileys and all, and
with all the good intentions, will still lead to negative replies. But I
hope not. Perhaps time to simply move on? ;)

regards, G?ran

PS. I love all the momentum in Pharo right now, it all looks very good,
and I am itching digging into 1.4! Superb work.

I stop reacting to these things long ago. It just a waste of time.
I don't care if people prefer A over B or C over D, as long as they
are not evangelizing me make same choice.


I never spew on Squeak or people, since i am part of community.. and
its like spewing on myself at the end...

Apart from it, lying the facts about quality of some smelly Squeak
code (and consequently Pharo as well, since it inherits from it).
There is no need to divide on camps. Bad code is bad code, no matter
if it is in Squeak or Pharo.
As i told before, i prefer to call 'crap' what is crap. And it is
completely neutral towards fork(s), and based only on quality of code
in question and my bias towards better solutions :)
And i expect that pointing out to this should not provoke negative
emotions, but an efforts to fix it (or discussion how to fix it).

And i DO respect an effort of people who implemented things we using..
Even if implementation not perfect.
But hey, we are here to fix it! And pointing out to flaw is a first step.

Beautiful work Bernhard and Juan!

I just discovered the greatest feature I never knew I was missing, word
completion for text! This is so much better than battling with a
spellchecker until one of us figures out what I was trying to say. :)

I think Spoon could be very useful. I'm waiting for some tutorial or
howto on how to use Spoon for this.
Craig ?

Several of us wait a tutorial of how you got from Spoon to Cuis ....

Yeah VM works on iOS.
Cool!
My use case is private, nothing fancy. I just value having decent
TextEditor and friends.
For an OO thing like Smalltalk Pharo, it would be a shame to now have a
top notch UI kit for editing text.
I totally agree. That's one reason why I started the Styled Text Editor
project. ;-)
Great effort!
Are there screen shots of the implementation available somewhere?

In which format does it save the files? RTF? HTML? Something else?

Bernhard
I hope to be able to provide several decent samples so that newcomers
don't have to go through the same pain as I go through now.
Phil
Thanks for the encouragement!
The necessary funding depends on the effort of course, and this in turn
depends on the approach one uses for porting. We have an idea how to do
the port to Pharo as an external package. Do you have a concrete use case
in mind?
Cheers,
Bernhard
P.S. Did you succeed building the Mac VM on Xcode 4.3 yet?
Great news!
I am currently busy looking after Text, TextAttributes, TextConstants,
Paragraph... and god, it went through the grinder and it shows.
I understand the reasons that led to such things but Collections-Text is
in need of improvement for sure.
How much funding would be necessary to get this port done?

Native format is SmartRefStream. The export to RTF is done and used
for ExtendedClipboard (currently only supported on the 4 series Mac
VM). It would be trivial to add support for saving RTF files, but RTF
can not hold all the features StyledTextEditor supports, so it is
better to use own format.

Top post: Is there a market for a pure ST RTF implementation?

My first thought is "it can't be that hard to do" which is of course probably quite wrong, given that I don't know much about how RTF works:)

I'm curious about why RTF would live in a plugin, given that it's so common a format. Is that because the plugin wraps some convenient native libraries?

No, you got me wrong! Maybe you'd check the code, but anyway... The
RTF for StyledTextEditor is pure Smalltalk. The export was done by me,
and was quite easy to do. The parser for import is based on Sophie's.

The extended clipboard plugin is used to bring RTF (and any other
supported format, like bmp/jpeg/tiff) from / to the OS clipboard.

That's why I say that supporting RTF file format is no big deal.

Juan Vuletich

Aha! Yes I understood quite improperly. Now I get it though.

As far as reading the actual code (you're quite right, I should have) it's just rather a challenge from a DRM phone:(

I mean to fix this, but first I need to get Celeste (or some such) working in Cuis, and then get Cuis working on my phone again!

Hi Casey,
Post by Casey Ransberger
Top post: Is there a market for a pure ST RTF implementation?
My first thought is "it can't be that hard to do" which is of course probably quite wrong, given that I don't know much about how RTF works:)
I'm curious about why RTF would live in a plugin, given that it's so common a format. Is that because the plugin wraps some convenient native libraries?
No, you got me wrong! Maybe you'd check the code, but anyway... The RTF for StyledTextEditor is pure Smalltalk. The export was done by me, and was quite easy to do. The parser for import is based on Sophie's.
The extended clipboard plugin is used to bring RTF (and any other supported format, like bmp/jpeg/tiff) from / to the OS clipboard.
That's why I say that supporting RTF file format is no big deal.
Cheers,
Juan Vuletich

Yeah VM works on iOS.
Cool!
My use case is private, nothing fancy. I just value having decent
TextEditor and friends.
For an OO thing like Smalltalk Pharo, it would be a shame to now have a
top notch UI kit for editing text.
I totally agree. That's one reason why I started the Styled Text Editor
project. ;-)
Great effort!
Are there screen shots of the implementation available somewhere?
We haven?t published any. I can do it in case you?re not able to run it...
Post by H. Hirzel
In which format does it save the files? RTF? HTML? Something else?
Native format is SmartRefStream. The export to RTF is done and used for ExtendedClipboard (currently only supported on the 4 series Mac VM). It would be trivial to add support for saving RTF files, but RTF can not hold all the features StyledTextEditor supports, so it is better to use own format.

I hope to be able to provide several decent samples so that newcomers
don't have to go through the same pain as I go through now.
Phil
Thanks for the encouragement!
The necessary funding depends on the effort of course, and this in turn
depends on the approach one uses for porting. We have an idea how to do
the port to Pharo as an external package. Do you have a concrete use case
in mind?
Cheers,
Bernhard
P.S. Did you succeed building the Mac VM on Xcode 4.3 yet?
Great news!
I am currently busy looking after Text, TextAttributes, TextConstants,
Paragraph... and god, it went through the grinder and it shows.
I understand the reasons that led to such things but Collections-Text is
in need of improvement for sure.
How much funding would be necessary to get this port done?

Dear Smalltalkers,
I am very happy to announce that the Styled Text Editor for the brand new
Cuis 4.0 is now available on GitHub [1]. The Styled Text Editor was first
presented by me at last year's ESUG in Edinburgh [2]. Thanks to ESUG the
presentation was recorded [3].
The Styled Text Editor is a framework for rich text editing using styles
as known from popular word processors like Apple Pages or Microsoft Word.
It features paragraph and character styles, allowing easy text formatting
using styles only. It is intended for applications where users need to
work with good looking rich text in a simple and fast way.
Rich text commonly refers to text with formatting information like
different fonts, sizes, alignments, and emphasis. To make editing as
simple as possible instead of individual formatting information end users
apply styles to parts of the text. Editing is made fast by keyboard
shortcuts for text navigation, selection, and styles selection. Where
possible the feel of widely used rich text editors is supported.
It includes many features like
- numbered and bulleted list paragraph styles
- support for images
- multiple level undo and redo
- text completion using various glossaries including a dictionary of
English with about 166.000 words
- RTF clipboard (on OS X VMs with the ClipboardExtendedPlugin)
The Styled Text Editor is developed in Cuis with the plan to eventually
port it to Squeak and Pharo. The development of the Styled Text Editor
inspired many changes to Cuis itself, and It is the first package to use
the brand new DVCS based development process for external packages for
Cuis 4.0.
The idea and funding was provided by me, Bernhard Pieber and my company
Software Generation. The implementation was done by Juan Vuletich, the
mastermind behind Cuis. Thanks Juan for the close cooperation. It was and
still is great fun to work with you.
We are looking forward to feedback from you. Fork it on GitHub [1],
create issues and send us pull requests. ;-)
Cheers,
Bernhard Pieber

I remember that there disucssions on the mailing list about not beeing
able to use Sophie code because it is a different license. I assume
now with the github version control system this is a different issue
as the Sophie file is separated, right?

I read here
https://github.com/bpieber/Cuis-StyledTextEditor/blob/master/LICENSE
that the RTF import is BSD, the rest is MIT.

Exactly. What would be a problem is to include this code in the
official image of a Squeak variant.

Dear Smalltalkers,
I am very happy to announce that the Styled Text Editor for the brand new Cuis 4.0 is now available on GitHub [1]. The Styled Text Editor was first presented by me at last year's ESUG in Edinburgh [2]. Thanks to ESUG the presentation was recorded [3].
The Styled Text Editor is a framework for rich text editing using styles as known from popular word processors like Apple Pages or Microsoft Word. It features paragraph and character styles, allowing easy text formatting using styles only. It is intended for applications where users need to work with good looking rich text in a simple and fast way.
Rich text commonly refers to text with formatting information like different fonts, sizes, alignments, and emphasis. To make editing as simple as possible instead of individual formatting information end users apply styles to parts of the text. Editing is made fast by keyboard shortcuts for text navigation, selection, and styles selection. Where possible the feel of widely used rich text editors is supported.
It includes many features like
- numbered and bulleted list paragraph styles
- support for images
- multiple level undo and redo
- text completion using various glossaries including a dictionary of English with about 166.000 words
- RTF clipboard (on OS X VMs with the ClipboardExtendedPlugin)
The Styled Text Editor is developed in Cuis with the plan to eventually port it to Squeak and Pharo. The development of the Styled Text Editor inspired many changes to Cuis itself, and It is the first package to use the brand new DVCS based development process for external packages for Cuis 4.0.
The idea and funding was provided by me, Bernhard Pieber and my company Software Generation. The implementation was done by Juan Vuletich, the mastermind behind Cuis. Thanks Juan for the close cooperation. It was and still is great fun to work with you.
We are looking forward to feedback from you. Fork it on GitHub [1], create issues and send us pull requests. ;-)
Cheers,
Bernhard Pieber

Found the bug. It didn't happen always, only if there was a $. in some part of the path. It is fixed now on GitHub.

Thanks, Bob!

Cheers,

Hi Bob,
Evaluating 'StyledTextInstaller new openStyledTextEditorDocumentation' works for me... Does it fail for you?
Cheers,
Juan Vuletich
I encountered a small glitch installing this - the example files had a .object suffix, but the code to open them did not.
Cheers,
Bob

Please load the very latest updates to Cuis from http://www.jvuletich.org/Cuis/CuisUpdates1261-1268.zip before installing Styled Text Editor.
