I decided to use https://parceljs.org/ it's much saner solution than webpack for small projects
I've giving a #livecoding workshop in Sheffield next month for #algorave. I don't know that many people in the UK but I would like for this to be filled with people who can really use this as a stepping stone to get into music, programming or both! Please share :)
Great talk about browser's event loop
@faun oh you absolutely right. I'll probably be working as js dev pretty soon so I can tell it's used almost everywhere :) I mostly talk about my preferences for backed language - I woudn't be using JS/TS as back-end language for projects I manage
@faun Kotlin and other languages can transpile to js so that's not unique to TS. Yup, JS engines are crazy fast for dynamic languages (Luajit might be faster but it doesn't got much love recently)
New MASTER BOOT RECORD album? Heck yeah! 💚
@faun I'd ask what are advantages? Underlying JS is not advantage for sure, NPM ecosystem is huge but JVM, Python and Ruby also have mature set of libs. TS is nothing special in comparison to other back-end languages - not the fastest, not greatest support for concurrency, definitely not safest. It's probably decent option if you don't want learn new technology but personally I wouldn't use it.
@grainloom don't quote me on that, but I sync git repos and haven't had any issues so far...
@faun I heard about deno but I'm not really interested in js/ts as backend language. Plenty of better options available. I haven't worked with really big codebases yet. I love refactoring in statically typed languages tho: break stuff -> fix until compiler is happy -> usually everything works
#Kakoune is getting lazy loading support soon. Default installation with support for 70+ languages starts in 0.02 second. Niiice :D
