@email@example.com really I just want to kill automake because ugh
@catonano @firstname.lastname@example.org make has guile support but I've never used it
@catonano @email@example.com I've heard that sadly it's not quite as powerful as it should be.
Honestly I'd still like to have a build DSL written in Guile that can either run as scheme or write out portable shell
Of course you'd prefer guile. Those m4 macros are a huge techical debt
Integrating java and clojure is way easier !
I made a Guile wrapper around Freexl. I used some m4 macros
But then Guile-git, g-golf and all those use different macros to do the same thing, I don't undertsand and that frustrates me
@catonano @firstname.lastname@example.org yeah autotools overwhelms me
Now, for example, there' s no way that I can get Haunt to work on my Fedora workstation.
The Guix provided Haunt cant fins some scheme modules
If I check it out and build it it misses some other modules
And of course the macros in Haunt config.am are different than the ones I found in guile-git, guile-crypt, g-golf... 😞
