I wrote a new functional reactive-y interface for Racket to help manage state. https://sagegerard.com/kinda-ferpy-intro.html
It's not the first of it's kind, but it's one of the more convenient.
Email is good and nice and you should use it.
I've been excited to share one of my FOSS projects but haven't had a chance to slow down enough to talk about it until now.
Polyglot is a website construction tool that lets you use any language for humans or computers, between or within pages. It is more powerful than Webpack, and leverages the powers of the Racket language.
some malaphors I think about:
-we'll burn that bridge when we get to it
-if you can't stand the bull, get out of the china shop
-where there's smoke, there's mirrors
-fool me once, shame on you; teach a man to fool me, and I'll be fooled for the rest of my life
-come back to haunt you in the ass
-lets not beat around the dead horse
-beauty is in the eye of the tiger
-burning daylight at both ends
-apples to apples, dust to dust
-a stone in the hand is worth two birds in the bush
@cwebber Congrats on TerminalPhase getting its GIF featured in the Racket newsletter!! https://racket-news.com/2019/12/racket-news-issue-21.html
Between DrRacket and Scribble, I am quite transfigured. The yak is clean shaved. This is everything I’ve ever wanted in a programming language but never known. It’s a little like love. 💕
Here's how to debug code you don't understand using only Git. https://sagegerard.com/git-debugging.html
FOSS has been my repentance for years of writing amoral software for companies. I wondered if I would feel better about my career if it was at risk the whole time. I wrote a little bit about that here: https://sagegerard.com/regulate-me.html
Someone used my web authoring tool to make their blog! So excited! https://xy2.dev/racket-blog.html
I found two tools that replaced Evernote, MyFitnessPal and Google Calendar: A journal and a pen.
I know, I know, there's no cloud sync. But a journal covers every situation I care about. I don't need a bunch of accounts, it's as secure as its hiding place, no corporate entity is trying to track it, and you just can't beat that open-and-shut UX.
A 70s-era hacker born too late. I am an advocate for individual privacy, right to repair, and all things FOSS. I am also a contributor to #racket.
