New #emacs #blog post: "State of Emacs Lisp on Guile": https://emacsninja.com/posts/state-of-emacs-lisp-on-guile.html
#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 https://test.nqsb.io -- code is at https://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
They don't mention our names (@NLnetFDN), yet they recognise and write about the importance of our #bootstrapping
work! [Auf Deutsch]
14K commits by 201 people since the last release! It’s been a lot of work but I think it’s a beautiful release. :-)
Another day, another #GNU #Guix release candidate: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2020-04/msg00224.html Feedback welcome!
Today, we discover the beauty of hyperlinks: https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Using-the-Configuration-System.html . Yup, you can click on the #Guix symbols in code snippets to jump to their doc!
#Guix + #Hurd in a box: we did it! :-) https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/a-hello-world-virtual-machine-running-the-hurd/ @janneke
#GNU #Guix to deprecate support for the Linux kernel: https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/deprecating-support-for-the-linux-kernel/ This is becoming possible thanks to the hard work put into supporting the #Hurd in Guix over the years!
Guix is getting Hurd support and hopes to make it the first-class option https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/deprecating-support-for-the-linux-kernel/
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.

Good progress installing #GNU #Guix on the #pinebook pro -- https://joyofsource.com/guix-system-on-the-pinebook-pro.html
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?
Now landed on master!
So much wonderful stuff yesterday at #apconf 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!
