An implementation of the Smalltalk language that runs on top of the JS runtime.
\o/ Call for contributors! \o/
The core project of Amber has enough resources, but:
- the Helios IDE (https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/helios), as well as
- examples (https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/amber-examples), and
- documentation (https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/amber-documentation)
would need some of your care.
Thank you very much!
(see CONTRIBUTING.md for further details)
