Metacello (Definition)

(was: https://code.google.com/p/metacello/wiki/FAQ)


Metacello is a package management system for Monticello (the version control system) that is consistent with the important features of Monticello:
It provides cross platform operation for platforms that support Monticello, currently Squeak, Pharo and GLASS, and provides conditional package loading for projects by allowing platform-specific loading of Monticello packages.

Torsten Bergmann presents a use case for Metacello at WhyAPackageManagementSystem https://code.google.com/p/metacello/wiki/WhyAPackageManagementSystem

A baseline describes the structure and dependencies (load order) of the packages. In Metacello this is done by defining a method on the projects configuration class.

Loading Metacello includes FileTree.
