Hey!
I wanted to let you know that I've been updating my blog on Mars with the latest news, I've just posted some videos showing how different kinds of layouts and widgets are working together on both Cocoa and GTK.


For the ones that are interested in some implementation challenges that I had while building layouts that could work for both Cocoa and GTK, I recommend reading this post: http://marsonpharo.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/the-challenges-behind-building-mars-cross-platform-layouts-on-top-of-cocoa-and-gtk/

Cheers!
Carla.

Native widgets opens really new horizons :)

I think it's possible to program that window with Mars :) But I also guess that from each row of the tree you can open a pop-up menu with options, right? That is not yet done, although there's some work on it already, and it was among my next steps.

Now, a further step would be to "hide" the Pharo image so the Mars application can be launched as a normal native application, but we haven't discussed about it yet :P

Esteban, your idea was to do a describe a spec of that window to build the corresponding Mars application? I think that at least the "skeleton" (plain UI) of the Pharo Launcher is simple enough for a new Mars user to do, the MarsClassesAndComments example is a very very simple application that uses a MarsTree list, so maybe he can base the Pharo Launcher application on that one and then see how to use a MarsButton also by just looking for references of that class in other examples.
Anyway, by the end of this week I should have more documentation on how to use each widget.

ha! that's exactly what I demanded to the student of "abstract platform spec" as a proof of concept of his work :)

(is a good way to match two of the projects I'm mentoring: giving them a common denominator :P)
