New #emacs #blog post: "State of Emacs Lisp on Guile": emacsninja.com/posts/state-of-

#Guile is a #Scheme that gets a disproportionate amount of attention when mentioned with Emacs in a sentence. I'm sick of the occasional r/emacs or emacs-devel thread with little facts and much speculation, so here's some original research of what you can and can not do with Guile's Emacs Lisp implementation.

today I developed a #MirageOS unikernel which serves the contents of a git remote via HTTP(S), including let's encrypt certificate provisioning. A test instance is setup at test.nqsb.io -- code is at github.com/hannesm/unipi (includes various protocols: git, ssh, tls, http, acme). it is < 300 lines of application code :D and even provides HTTP cache headers (last-modified / etag) :D A webhook is available that fetches the git remote (to update the contents) :D

Today, we discover the beauty of hyperlinks: guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/h . Yup, you can click on the #Guix symbols in code snippets to jump to their doc!

lmao Guix is THE SHIT

did a new pull and reconfigure from this older generation and the whole thing is fixed now. This is the best user experience I've ever had with an operating system.

The discussion around GNU's governance and the point of view of people involved in Guix and Guile gives me enough hope to not give up on projects in GNU. GNU in general is a mess. I dissociated myself from GNU mostly. But people in those two projects are very consistent and very positive, at least Guix.

It seems there's a lot of interest in continuing work on Guile Emacs, since it keeps coming up on Reddit and Hacker News and everyone is lamenting the fact that there are too few Scheme hackers and they don't seem to be interested in the project. (Someone even offered to fund it.)

Right now I'm seriously considering starting a revival project. Is anyone here interested in such a venture?

I'm writing up a big ol' blogpost about Terminal Phase and the things I've learned about game development in Racket and also how this relates to the future of Spritely and I'm suddenly doubting anyone cares :X

reduces bootstrap seed by 50%! In other words, the size of
at the root of its package graph has been halved to ~250MB

Now landed on master!

So much wonderful stuff yesterday at between Mark Miller's keynote and the really truly wonderful unconference sessions.

It'll take a while for me to unpack it all, but I'll write it up soon!
