Wanted to do a 5 minute experiment with an unfamiliar API and was so absolutely and immediately beset by problems with codesigning, library compatibility with multiple architectures, auth tokens, and other environment setup things that I gave up before I even got to the first line of actual code.

Maybe I just got too old. None of this is fun any more.

@stevenf FWIW this is exactly what got me hooked on pico-8: not so much the retro/game stuff, as the fact it’s a zero-faff coding environment. It made programming feel fun again, instead of an endless slog of yak shaving.
