I'm currently trying the text editor helix [1], so far it's super cool! It's inspired from kakoune, but it has saner defaults that I like :flan_thumbs:

I have a cycle with emacs where I tweak it furiously for a few days and then leave it as-is for a year or more. I think I'm approaching the tweak phase again.

In the past few weeks I have bought The Little Schemer, The Seasoned Schemer, The Little MLer, the Little Typer, and copies of the OCaml tutorial books.

I completely blame @cwebber for these additions to my library. 😁

I'm going to brush off some old Common Lisp code and give it a bit of an update for the intervening decade.

Are people still using quicklisp, or is there anything newer, or more open?

guile-prescheme's prescheme emulation mode now works! I gave the example in the README a try! gitlab.com/flatwhatson/guile-p

Nice work! Can't believe just how fast Andrew Whatson is going!

The emulation mode means that live REPL hacking of prescheme is now working (simulating writing to memory the same way C would).

Once the "compile to C" port is there, we'll have a pretty exciting thing to use! Low-level, high-speed programs, developed live at the Guile REPL!

(service . "demo-client")
(state . "ok")
(tags . ("demo-client" "riemann-disguile"))
(attributes . ((x-client . "riemann-disguile")))))

(query "true"))

I think I'm liking this.
