(IronPython + Smalltalk + Lisp) + (Windows(Browser.IE, Browser.Fx), OSX(Browser.Fx, Browser.Safari)) + Silverlight ==
NOTE: Technically speaking, the title doesn’t perfectly match the above graphic, but as per below, it will soon enough…
Above is a test of IronPython running on a “Virtual Desktop” inside a browser.
I created the “Virtual Desktop” libraries to allow me to create a Smalltalk environment within a browser. As part of my porting Vista Smalltalk to Silverlight, I have modified the desktop to be compliant with any DLR (Dynamic Language Runtime) based language; so it is now possible to run IronPython in workspace windows with Smalltalk-like interaction (”DoIt”, “ShowIt”, etc). This, of course, will also apply to IronRuby, Vbx and JScript.
Once I have an initial Smalltalk compiler working, I will attempt to run everything in Silverlight.
Peter Fisk is not *a* Rock Star. Peter Fisk is *Elvis*! (AKA *THE* ROCK STAR :D) So much so that even Jim Hugunin stopped by to leave a few words of his own on the subject,
Wow, that looks cool! I’m stunned you were able to get this far already after we just released code on Monday.
Folks, when Jim Hugunin stops by your blog to tell you he’s impressed, you know you’ve made it to the top of the rock star hacker stack. ;-)
Nice, Peter! Can’t wait to see what you pull together next!
