Monticello Guide by John Meyer
CoWeb Assignment 2, Monticello Use Description
To use the Monticello repository system, first you must install it. In Windows, left-click from within Squeak to call up the World Menu. Then click "open...", then "Package loader". Highlight "Monticello" in the left-hand pane, right-click and select "install". Voila!
To open up Monticello to use it, in Windows, first left-click to invoke the World Menu. Then select "open...", and then choose "Monticello Browser" from the list of available choices. It should look something like this:
Then, select the particular package you are working on in the left-hand pane. In the right-hand pane, select the address of the repository. Yours will look something like this, though the left-hand pane will vary depending on what packages you have installed, and the right-hand pane will vary depending on the particular repository addresses.
After highlighting, click "Open" near the top right-hand corner of the Monticello browser. This will call up a Repository browser window as illustrated below. Note that, here, I chose the "cs2340-Playwriting" package, and the www.squeaksource.com/andrewco repository.
Then, highlight the particular version you would like to use, such as AC.103.mcz in the example below. Click "Load" near the top of the Monticello browser, and you're in business. This version will be loaded into your current Squeak image. You can load any version you want (to allow you to revert if you screw up).
That's it! Be sure to load version for all the packages you are using – updating "cs2340-Playwriting" does not, for example, update any of the other packages such as, in this example, "cs2340-Animation".
Saving is identical to loading, except select "Save" at the top of the Monticello browser. Your version will be automatically named and numbered.
