"It's Hot, It's Hot." WardAndKent
repeated to each other. It was the GroupSelect
and drag that was hot. It was flicker-free. They had carefully CachedBitmaps?
, minimized their RefreshRectangles
-ed the display. The test case was an offset stack of rectangles with every other one selected. The smooth motion made the 2-1/2D jump to life. RobDuesberg?
took one version up to UniversityOfWashington
where Bjorn Freeman-Benson put it in front of a constraint system he was building for AlanBorning?
. Bjorn now has an editor called CoolDraw
. Must be cool.
The first ever CrcCard
s described HotDraw
made sure the labs goodie library got packaged up with the last version of TekSmalltalk?
ever shipped. I guess that's how HotDraw
made it to Europe where a lot of enhancement and conversion got done.
Ralph on the tool at one point or another.
This latter effort led to Ralph's paper on DocumentingFrameworksWithPatterns
Where are they now? Here are links to various implementations that trace their roots, at least in part, to HotDraw
It is instructive to compare Ken's and Erich's philosophies through their code.
has built-in support for HotDraw
Work on the Java Hotdraw implementation of ErichGamma
is now being continued as an open source project:
and others on his team at RoleModelSoftware
have applied the principles of HotDraw
to a project they are working on for The Friday Institute for Educational Innovation (http://www.fi.ncsu.edu/
in a test driven fashion using Jasmine. He is speaking on it on February 15, 2011 at the Raleigh Ruby Brigade meetup.
