I updated the Pillar support in GTInspector. Some of the extensions already exist in the
default Pillar #development version. If you want to play with the full support, you can
load it like this:
smalltalkhubUser: 'Moose' project: 'PetitParser';
smalltalkhubUser: 'Moose' project: 'GToolkit';
Then you can just inspect a book folder and you get this:
I did not integrate this in the main Pillar yet because this is an older implementation
based on a limited island parser. As now Pillar has a full parser based on PetitParser,
the next step is to move the highlighting logic to use this parser instead of the island
parser. From my measurements, the speed of the two parsers is about the same, so from a
user perspective there will be not much changes.
It pains me that we are editing Pillar in outside tools, and now we should no longer have
to do that. Of course, this is not the most ideal tool support for Pillar but I think it
is a reasonable start.
To make things sadder: when I need to write some short “richish" I’m using markdown
instead for pillar because in ATOM I can open the rendered version of my document that
will update while i type (and will display images and so on). It could be nice to have the
same functionality in Pharo, but I’m really busy with improving other parts. Additionally
I’m not sure that it makes sense to reimplement rich text editor in Pharo.
