We are conducting an experiment on how developers use the Pharo IDE. We need to collect interaction histories from developers in their normal working conditions thus we kindly ask you to install our DFlow tool and use it on daily basis. DFlow runs on both Pharo 3.x and Pharo 4.x.
To download and install DFlow choose one of the two methods below:
- Run this script in a Pharo image (both 3.x and 4.x are supported)
smalltalkhubUser: 'RobertoMinelli' project: 'DevFlow';
(Smalltalk at: #ConfigurationOfDevFlow) perform: #loadAsUser.
- Put this startup script in your Pharo preferences folder.
We suggest to use the second method so that every time you open a new image it will download DFlow automatically. To discover where is the Pharo preferences folder evaluate the following code in a workspace:
Using DFlow requires zero effort from the developer, once installed. It is automatically enabled and shares your interaction data with us. If you want to disable it, go to the settings.
If you have any question contact us and if you discover a bug please file an entry in our bug-tracking system.
