    @hhzl needs to be reviewed, I'm into other thigns
    Manfred Kröhnert
    @mkroehnert
    @hhzl you are quite funny :-) first you put new stuff on the wiki, then I remark that it was agreed to add new stuff only to the docs repo and not the wiki, and afterwards you tell me that FAQ entries should go to the docs repo instead of the wiki

    sebastianconcept: Can we please use only Slack, and not gitter?
    Manfred Kröhnert
    @mkroehnert
    @ccrraaiigg what do you mean with only? do some Amber people use Slack, too?
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    Slack is for flow
    Ok, I've installed everything fresh.
    People we need to have amber repl answer 0.14.3 when typing in Smalltalk version.
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    We need to remove version command ;-)
    ah, repl.

    [philippeback@CENTOSDEV Amber014x]$ amber repl
    Welcome to Amber version 0.14.0 (NodeJS 0.10.26).
    Type :q to exit.

    amber >> Smalltalk version
    res1: String = 0.14.0

    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    we need repl with -d dir_to_load_amber option
    As I already wrote in tracker somewhere.
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    In the Workspace, I get: Smalltalk version '0.14.3'
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    (or with --local meaning '-d .')
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    sucky
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    Not at all. Logical.
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    Logical??!!
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    Yes. amber repl is tied to cli.
    amber repl is one of the commands of the cli.
    Philippe Back

    "dependencies": {
    "amber": "^0.14.0",
    "grunt-init-amber": "^0.14.0",

    "amber-dev": "^0.3.0",
    "grunt-cli": "^0.1.13"
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    (and no, there is no point to change cli for every release of amber itself. They are partly independent, same as grunt and grunt-cli)
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    shouldn't ^0.14.0 be a ^0.14 ?
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    no
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    well, what if I want amber latest for my repl?
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    T - 3min
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    Ah, yes, something: is there a way to get larger fonts for Helios? It sucks with super tiny fonts for demos
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    For me it sucks with monospace, as I am used to proportional for Smalltalk.
    Ctrl + does not help?
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    yeah, it works up to a point
    I am now working on my core i5 machine and not my i7 tower. Looks like Helios quite slow (I am in a VM but still, I gave it 4 cores)
    Sorry, I just saw that I in amber-documentation, back to the /amber thing
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    I work on i5 all the time. Well, it depends, It starts a few secs, but until you want to run tests while having other tabs open, it works fine.
    But that test runner (in fact, design of Helios and speed of announcements) is something which should be tackled.
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    Thing is that I do not want my FOSDEM demo to look sluggish
    Manfred Kröhnert
    @mkroehnert
    @philippeback Smalltalk version in Amber repl responds the version of Amber which was used to compile the NodeJS program
    so in essence, you can create your own local version compiled with Amber 0.14.3
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    Ok
    Manfred Kröhnert
    @mkroehnert
    but be aware that the repl is very limited and does only accept a small subset of valid Smalltalk
    if I remember correctly, then it does not accept a statement where a block contains an inner block
    Philippe Back
    @philippeback
    Ok, didn't knew that
    Herbert Vojčík
    @herby
    @mkroehnert really? I thought it just uses existing parser and compiler, just as workspace does.
    Manfred Kröhnert
    @mkroehnert
    @herby not that I remember
    I took a note which says it has problems with nested assignments
    I guess I'd have to try it out again to check
    the problematic part is apparently Repl>>parseAssignment: according to my notes
