Glorp is the Object-Relational-Mapper for Smalltalk. More on glorp will be added in the future.
Current glorp's version is version 1.10, for Pharo 3.0 and 4.0. You can load glorp using its metacello configuration. For that, execute the following script.
As glorp works with many different database drivers, this configuration does not include a database driver. Database drivers are loadable separately from glorp. We explain how to load the existent glorp drivers in following subsections.
1. Garage Glorp driver
Version 0.1 of GarageGlorp requires version 0.2 of garage or superior.
The GarageGlorp package includes a Glorp driver using Garage. Current version of GarageGlorp driver is 0.1, and is available as a metacello configuration that can be loaded with the following script.
This configuration will take care of loading the correct version of glorp. That is, there is no need to load Glorp separately. You will have however to load the particular garage driver of your choice. For example, you can load Glorp and Garage's postgresV2 driver using the following script:
To configure glorp to use this driver, you should execute the following expression:
