Growing Helma

Thoughts on the future of Helma, inspired by Guy Steele's paper Growing A Language. Work in progress.

  1. Gap between Helma core (Java) and Helma app (JS)
  2. Rails lesson: Extract Framework from application, don't masterplan the framework
  3. Helma 1: JS libraries neglected, added as afterthought
  4. Helma 1: Simple things are difficult, hard to start an app from zero
