Awesome! I've been without internet for an entire morning and I can't work on some projects since I don't have the source code checked out. My ultra hack was to use my phone (I'm posting from there) with mobile data, attach the keyboard then clone stuff from there and go back. Big thanks to my ISP for this
Nope, river requires Zig which requires LLVM 11 (Alpine has only 10) and building LLVM from scratch is too painful

2. For bragging rights.
3. When Maciej Cegłowski gave his talk about the website obesity crisis in 2015, the average web page weighed over 2MB. It's only gotten worse since then, and I don't want to be part of the problem.
4. Heavy web pages eat up mobile devices' battery and data plans.
5. Heavy web pages take longer to load, and are more likely to annoy visitors into leaving.
I'm going to try #Sourcehut static hosting and make a new base for the blog + gemini support.
There was a long time since I have written HTML and CSS 🙃
The current approach involves having a tiny set of functions (like print, exit, etc.) implemented in the target language and slapping them in front of the generated code.
We were thinking to replace this with an "inline" keyword that can be used to embed raw code snippets in the target language into antimony.
Is this really a good approach, or are there even better alternatives?
