SDL2, Cairo & Headless for realtime native applications

An SDL2 based game in Pharo.

 

Smalltalkware

Hardware gets cheaper each day. It also gets faster and faster to run dynamic object oriented systems like Smalltalks even on tiny single board computers. In this tweet Chris Thorgrimsson runs VisualWorks and Pharo side by side on Lattepanda, a cheap palm sized Windows 10 computer which costs around 100$. Nice!

SmallPOS Status

SmallPOS is a POS and accounting system for small business written using Seaside web application framework for Smalltalk. Pharo is used as platform and the Code is on SqueakSource. The license of SmallPOS is MIT.

SmallPOS itself is a framework that can be used to build POS management applications.

Looks like there are some activity now to update the framework code and there are some screenshots of a russian SmallPOS-based management system that was built with the SmallPOS framework (click to enlarge):






 

Modtalk

In 2014 there was a presentation about Modtalk - an MIT licensed modular compiled Smalltalk.

There is a nice webpage on https://www.modtalk.org with a copyright of 2016. So there seems to be some activity behind the scenes. But the GitHub repo is still empty. I wonder about the status of the project...
