Clojure Weekly newsletter
There were a few Clojure themed newsletters launched over the years. But none of them seem active now. So I'm launching this. If nothing else, at least my friends will subscribe :)
Let's see how long I can keep it going.
Emacs has a chart library built-in! Plus, it works in a terminal!
I must say I'm impressed.
Just came back from #clojureD.
Great conf. Lots of little things that just add to the whole Clojure experience. So glad I went.
I need start using jet instead of jq on command line!
Nice write up on how to react-native in #clojurescript
@bzg hi, what's the reason ox-rss.el hasn't been made a standalone package that can be installed vi package-install? Thanks
If you haven't had the joy of contributing to #emacs yet, one of the obstacles is their poorly specified commit message style (which is somewhere between regular commit messages and changelog entries). Turns out there is a tool to help you with getting the formatting right.
There's a http-client in #clojure from Cognitect.
There's no repo for it, but you can get the sources from the JAR:
forked and updated a verbal regex library for #Clojure, I find this approach makes regexes much easier to maintain:
(def tester (verex/compile
[:anything-but " "]
(def test-url "https://mastodon.social")
(if (match tester test-url)
(println "Valid URL"))
“Information has been dying at least since 2003.”
‘I often refuse to release even the most humble library without code comments, examples, tests, invariant definitions, a logo, and an “official website”.’ —Michael #Fogus in 2011, http://blog.fogus.me/2011/01/05/the-marginalia-manifesto/
“there isn’t one thing called documentation, there are four. They are:
2. how-to guides,
3. explanation and
4. technical reference.”
—Daniele Procida, 2017?, https://www.divio.com/blog/documentation/
Fogus went on to recant his intensive approach http://blog.fogus.me/2015/11/04/the-100101-method-my-approach-to-open-source/ but it stuck with me.
Tootle, like the fact that it allows you to save search terms and use them as lists. But super sensitive to touch. Opens random URLs & hashtags while you scroll through toots.
Mast just crashes. Search UI takes a good 1/5 off the screen. Can’t save searches.
Amaroq, nice simple UI. But the search UI is too basic.
Toot! has a nice UI, but search is clunky. The fonts are too small.
What do you use?
@tootleapp also the app tends to crash a lot more.
Sorry. But figured you’d want to know...
