Note: Most currently maintained and downloadable projects and applications within Squeak can now be found on SqueakMap. A wider variety of projects (and level of maintenance) appears below.
The following categories will jump you into the full listing:
Feel free to add entries, and try to keep them in alphabetical order. Please include the name of the project maintainer, a description, the most recent release of the system in which it has been tested, any other packages it requires, and where to get it. Go ahead and link the title of the package to any more detailed web page that exists for it.
This page combines the older VanIsleCampSmalltalk2015, Tools, and Packages pages.
If you are looking for something to do, you might also want to take a look at Code requests.
Question: what items should included in the templates? Potential items:
- Description: a brief description of the package;
- Author: the name and email of the author(s);
- RelatedSites: URL's other than the main one. eg, the original page for a port;
- Squeak Version: information about Squeak versions this project runs with;
- Required packages: names of packages that are also required, ideally hyperlinked to their web page.
- Description: MIDIFileWriter is a class that allows you to convert Squeak's MIDIScore data structure to a midi file. This midi file can then be loaded in other applications. With MIDIFileWriter, Squeak can now be used as a music editing tool. In the past, you could read in a midi file and change its orchestration and notes...but once you changed it, you had no way of getting the data back out. Now, you can make any modifications you want (or even make a new composition from the keyboard and piano roll) and export it using a common file format.
- Author: Lushi
- Download: MIDIFileWriter Version 1.01 (still beta though)
- Comment: Please beta test it and give feedback here! I need feedback about what to improve and change and how to integrate it into Squeak.
- Sound and music
- Description: links to audio codecs. The MP3 codec can handle MPEG video as well as audio.
- Description:Eddie's tool lets you place notes on staffs, right-click them to change duration, create multiple staffs, and then generate MIDI ScorePlayers to play the result. He's implemented his own font system to gain more control over the individual notes. There's a ReadMe that explains some of it.

- SSP - Squeak Server Pages (SSP)
- Description: This change set enables servlet style methods to be written in the class browser. I named it SSP because of it's likeness to JSP, PSP, etc. However, it's not exactly like those schemes, in that it has nothing (necessarily) to do with web serving and the like. SSP methods write the contents of their source onto a stream. Smalltalk code segments (delinieated with <% and %>) can be embedded into this text. Additionally, embedding Smalltalk code between <%= and %>, will force the compiler to send #sspStreamOn: to the result of evaluating the enclosed expression. SSP modifies the parser to allow SSP syntax to be written directly in the class browser.
