Me trying to understand how clients work... by writing my code in ... At first I tried making the client directly in but in the end it was easier to start with C code and then move to Forth step by step. The exciting part is the fact that I may be writing the first ever Forth wayland-client. The bad part... well, there's no doc, ahah..

@normandc @Shufei@mastodon.social @Alonealastalovedalongthe @PINE64 Hello! I received my BraveHeart two weeks ago and I've been allocating all my free time to making it my daily driver by writing fast and minimalist apps based on / . A lot of great developer like @sir are also working on the phone. The linux revolution on smartphone is finally coming, cheers 🎉

Maybe this question has already been asked, but I wonder if petnames really solve the issue. One could easily find a popular public listing, add a suggested petname of "Arnazon.com" and then call people pretending to be amazon. The UTF-8 look-alike characters trickery would still work, maybe even better than before thanks to that system. One could also infiltrate the network of a victim by becoming a trusted contact of a distant friend of the victim. Am I right?

Thank you for coming this morning to the presentation at ! It was great 😀
Try writing poems online 👉 rilouw.eu/poem 👈
You can share your creations on the hashtag !
Thanks again @fosdem for having me this year 🙏

@lga @tykayn @ChatonsOrg @Framasoft
Salut à toi ! Nous sommes actuellement en train de créer un chaton dédié aux assos qui va proposer des alternatives à gdrive avec du installé sur des serveurs upcyclés dans la région Nord.
Ça s'appelle @raoull !
Tu peux trouver quelques infos sur raoull.org/.
On est pas encore opérationnels, mais je t'invite à nous suivre, ça va démarrer d'ici les mois qui viennent 😎

You can now code using poems!
The first version of is available on my blog at rilouw.eu/poem/
I'll be presenting that at this Sunday!
Have fun trying to use it, and please send me any issue or error message you get so that I can fix them before the prez' :)
(I'm currently catching all exceptions and showing them to you directly, YOLO)
It's made with , the awesome like language for making languages.
Please don't break it too hard 🤞 🙏

Hey, esoteric language programmers, I'll be at this weekend with an awesome new technology to reveal! More to come, but we'll be writing together some thanks to and . See you Sunday at 9:30AM in room AW1.125 fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event
PS: The website is getting ready for you to try (and obviously break it down) so stay tuned!

@cwebber People write the same software all the time, in different environments, in different languages. I don't think it's a problem to work on a somewhat "less popular" language. The benefit of writing it yourself is that you understand how it works, and suggest to the world one interpretation of the subject. By comparing interpretations, multiple projects can improve each other. My advice would be: stick to what you love, you should have fun working on that.

@cwebber I've been there... Most of the continuation stuff is not adapted to modern web and a bit experimental. That's why I took what was good old web dev from the web-server lib and made my own "batteries-included" web server lib: github.com/euhmeuh/web-galaxy
It has no doc yet, but the examples in the test folder are pretty straightforward. Feel free to try it and get some inspiration!

@cwebber
Just use Lisp languages and pretend the world is beautiful. It's only in your head after all...

Euh les copains, je veux pas dire, mais les dons stagnent… toujours à 68% de l'objectif de financement pour @LaQuadrature !

Alors cette semaine :

- on appelle son eurodéputé pour qu'il refuse le règlement #CensureTerro ,

- et on fouille dans ses poches pour trouver des pépètes !

Merged two racket-csexp merge requests from fellow fediverse racketeers @clacke and @euhmeuh

It's nice when you have projects that you feel like are fairly obscure but it turns out people are reading and contributing to them anyway

Matthew Butterick explains why making languages with improves productivity and result in cleaner and tighter code. I couldn't explain it better.

I am finally convinced to try out the Racket programming language after watching @cwebber 's #FOSDEM 2019 talk.

I have been looking for a Lispy replacement to #Python for a year now. #Racket is batteries-included like Python. You can also create executable binaries.
I'm not looking for efficiency here, since it's just for scripts I run on my desktop.

Though I prefer to use Emacs over DrRacket, I can see how it can bring down the barrier to entry significantly.

#Lisp

@cwebber
I usually prefer the one file approach because it's easy to scan through. A multiple file approach requires a tutorial in which you can have the reader create files on the go, otherwise you don't really know where to start, in which order to read them, and why they're here. Anyway your project looks really cool, I'm glad someone is picking up to make such an ambitious project. Good luck!

En deuxième partie de soirée, on passe à l'action : on ira coller des affiches dans Paris pour sensibiliser aux problèmes de la pub en ligne et les inciter à installer un bloqueur de pub !

I'll be talking about at in Bruxelles, in the Minimalistic Languages Devroom. It's my first time talking at a convention, so I'm a bit nervous. See you there! fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event
