I also run an server, with free ZNC accounts, which is -only and focused on privacy and security. Ask for an invite!

Haskell syntax highlighting broken in VSCodium 1.66.2. HLS 1.7.0.0. ghcup 0.1.17.7. ghc 8.10.7. Downgrading (in VSCOdium) Haskell Syntax Highlighting extension to v3.3.0 (dependency of the Haskell extension) fixed the issue.

@alcinnz Hello, it's been a while since I signed on to fosstodon and I just wanted to reach out to you. How are things?

I'm still here! Not dead. I've actually been working on various projects in secret and taking some time to grow some of my other pursuits/hobbies.

The builder I made is actually pretty advanced and I should document all its wonderful features and show it off... maybe I'll start a wiki soon.

Just look at what you can do with the frontmatter, for instance.

This has inspired me to probably take a look at for formal verification. I have a project I might use it for!

I'm playing with the idea of trying to get together a group of Haskell people to be advocates. The idea would be to select the most practical Haskell libraries, especially for webdev, enhance their documentation, maybe make some PRs of other sorts for them, highlight tutorials related to them, make our own tutorials for those libraries, things of that nature. I think Haskell just needs to be easier to get people's foot in the door with practical projects.

I love and is nice, but I think I'm obligated to help out with their documentation. Though, that feels like a big undertaking and is a little intimidating.

Oh my god I love ! I just found out about it today. I'm going to try using it for maintaining my phlog posts and server notes.

Going to redo my server install. Starting with backing everything up and documenting how I'm doing the backup. Using to plan the installation, to be more careful and minimal and easy when it comes to setting things up this time. I may write a phlog post about it!

It's really interesting and wonderful that somehow most of the tooted images I see have alt text/are annotated. That's great accessibility I think. Something about mastodon just seems to encourage people to do that and they do.

If people actually like I'd be obliged to clean it up, make it more stable, and create a .deb package for it.

Using as primary key in and other related tips. Helpful article since I'm working on something that uses UUIDs in .

Does anyone use for in production? I feel like if you break the mould even a little bit it becomes very difficult to work with. Talk some sense into me!

I have to learn sometime. I read it took inspiration from and I wanted to learn Rust anyway.

"Generics" and generic deriving in is some magic I have to learn about soon. `DeriveGeneric` just made implementing ToJSON and FromJSON very easy.

I really needed to hear this talk.

It's about deciding how fancy and novel to let your Haskell code with relation to maintenance. Haskell has a lot of novel tools at its disposal. Each time you choose to use a novel tool you increase the learning curve not only for beginners, but also for your future self. Sometimes that trade odd is worth it.

I also learned about some cool libraries.
