Amber Travis CI Status

By Nicolas Petton petton.nicolas@gmail.com and Amber contributors

Amber is an implementation of the Smalltalk language that runs on top of the JavaScript runtime. It is designed to make client-side development faster and easier.

Overview

Amber is written in itself, including the parser and compiler. Amber compiles into efficient JavaScript, mapping one-to-one with the equivalent JavaScript. There is no interpretation at runtime.

Some highlights:

  • Amber features an IDE with a Class browser, Workspace, Transcript, a ReferencesBrowser supporting senders/implementors and class references, basic Inspector and even a beginning of a Debugger and a unit TestRunner.
  • Pharo Smalltalk is considered as the reference implementation.
  • Amber includes a canvas to generate HTML, like Seaside
  • Amber can use Javascript libraries and the current IDE is built on jQuery
  • You can inline Javascript code and there are many ways to interact between Amber and Javascript

Getting Amber

Amber is shipped as a npm package for its CLI tools and as a bower package for the client-side.

# Install the CLI tool `amber-cli`
npm install -g amber-cli

# Initialize your project (directory must be empty)
cd /path/to/myproject
amber init

# Serve amber on localhost:4000
amber serve

The Getting started page shows more details on ways to obtain Amber and start a project.
