[etoys-dev] [ANN] SqueakJS 0.2 released, now runs Etoys

Bert Freudenberg
Hi all,

my SqueakJS VM has reached a major milestone. It is now sufficiently complete to run a full Etoys image (and possibly other non-closure images, too). It has support for most BitBlt modes, WarpBlt, even some Balloon2D rendering (for TTF fonts), a virtual file system, image saving etc.

Try it: http://bertfreudenberg.github.io/SqueakJS/etoys/
(Safari and IE are significantly faster than Firefox and Chrome, best is Safari Webkit nightly, works on iPad too, hopefully Android)

For more details, see my blogpost:
http://croquetweak.blogspot.de/2014/07/squeakjs-runs-etoys-now.html

Feedback and contributions welcome :)

Bert,

This is an incredibly exciting leap forward!

I can test this on some of the following devices this weekend:

- iPad Air
- iPhone 5s (VM crashes after showing Etoys home screen for a second)
- XO-4 running Android 4.3.1
- Original Chromebook
- OLPC XO Walmart Tablet
- Mac OS X
- Maybe Google Glass???

Well at least some good news after first the US was eliminated and now Colombia.

Great work Bert.

To some of us, writing computer programs is a fascinating game. A program is a building of thought. It is costless to build, weightless, growing easily under our typing hands. If we get carried away, its size and complexity will grow out of control, confusing even the one who created it. This is the main problem of programming. It is why so much of today's software tends to crash, fail, screw up.

When a program works, it is beautiful. The art of programming is the skill of controlling complexity. The great program is subdued, made simple in its complexity.
