The goal of this project is to provide Vision with a Carbon backend to make it truly native on the mac. We have some basic controls working at the moment and we hope to be able get a full native build of EiffelStudio in the coming months. For more information please refer to the discussion page. See also OSX_release_infrastructure.

15.05.2007: There are quite a few updates since I posted the last time: We have been working on a layout inspector that can be easily included in any vision application and it allows us to see the structure of the layout of the current application which is a great help for debugging. Ueli is working on the layout right now. I have also made some more native functions accessible which resulted in the implementation of the File Open Dialogue and the Color Picker Dialogue. Here's a screenshot where you can see the layout inspector and the color picker. (D)
20.04.2007: We have started to do some work again in the last weeks and are now using the Vision2 Demo application as our main testing playground. Check out the screenshots. (D)
I collected a few Documents with introductions to carbon widgets and the carbon event Loop and also a part of the API Refference .
Here is some more information we have collected while working on our implementation.
Task / Bug Tracker
- EWG (with EWG environment variable set)
You need a folder x with a subfolder "library". cd into the library folder and checkout the code with the following command
svn co https://svn.eiffel.com/eiffelstudio/branches/eth/soft-arch/Src/library/vision2
Now point the environment variable ISE_LIBRARY_CARBON to the folder x.
Before you can compile a project you need to compile the EWG glue library. You can do this by running
geant c_build_library_isein the $ISE_LIBRARY_CARBON/library/vision2/implementation/carbon/wrapper directory.
You should then be able to compile and run a simple EV application like our example project which you can get here: http://n.ethz.ch/student/dfurrer/files/vision4mac/simple_demo_app.zip
