Dolphin Smalltalk, or "Dolphin" for short, is an implementation of the Smalltalk programming language for Microsoft Windows platform.

The Dolphin 7 version release coincided with the project going open-source using the MIT License.[1]

Dolphin is notable for its integrated development environment. The toolset of this Smalltalk dialect include an integrated refactoring browser, a package browser and a WYSIWYG "view composer". Dolphin deviates from the convention of the Smalltalk MVC framework with the choice of a Model–view–presenter framework.

Code refactoring[edit]

Full integration of the Refactoring Browser tools from Refactory Inc.

System browser[edit]

Provides a package-based browsing environment as an alternative to a conventional Smalltalk class hierarchy browser.


A "tabbed" container for managing Dolphin browsers and tools and associating them together with a particular idea or workflow. The idea is to save screen space and clutter and to help developers focus on their train of thought.

Version control[edit]

Source code management very similar to the ENVY source code manager that was available for some other commercial Smalltalk dialects.
