Tweak programming environment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Tweak, written by Andreas Raab, a German computer scientist, is a graphical user interface (GUI) layer for the Squeak development environment, which in turn is an integrated development environment based on the Smalltalk-80 computer programming language. Tweak is an alternative to an earlier graphic user interface layer called Morphic. Development began in 2001.[1]

Applications that use the Tweak software include Sophie (version 1), a multimedia and e-book authoring system, and a family of virtual world systems: Open Cobalt, Teleplace, OpenQwaq, 3d ICC's Immersive Terf and the Croquet Project.

Influences[edit]

An experimental version of Etoys, a programming environment for children, used Tweak instead of Morphic.[2] Etoys was a major influence on a similar Squeak-based programming environment known as Scratch.
