“This program is a powerhouse. Its vital statistics are impressive”
what is lacking in current implementation vs. the original Omnis 3 Plus is
the rapid application development aspect.
in Omnis 3 you literally could not make a syntax error – everything you
built your code with was picked from contextual selections.
following the outstanding example code and well written documentation, you
could quickly pick up the thread of writing powerful programs in Omnis 3
Plus and figure it all out, this in an era without stack exchange and
I created many Omnis 3 and Omnis 5 applications before I ever attended a
formal training session. When Omnis 7 came along, the training wheels were
off and I created some programs that ran for over ten years or more without
any modification, maintenance or even supervision on my part.
someone starting out with Studio from scratch today faces a daunting
learning curve. the world is a different place. I still use Omnis, to
autogenerate autoformatted structured web application code (LAMP) from
software design patterns.
for sure, doing cool stuff with Omnis on the Mac in the 80’s & 90’s blew a
lot of people’s minds and made a lot of people money….
