Nice, that looks indeed useful for Javascript. I'm planning on checking out ReScript (former buckleScript) and may rewrite some projects over the years end. Let's see!
Does ReScript also replace ReasonML? I'm kind of confused by how they play together with OCaml. Looks cool nonetheless.
Did you find a solution for runtime type checks in your node project?
Hey! Thanks for following up. I ended up going with github.com/userpix... for it's tiny size and minimalism. it was also pretty easy to wrap a "validator" function around its methods
Finally dark mode in Github! About damn time! github.com/setting...
Finally, I can retire my custom Sylus CSS
No recommendations for a runtime package from my side except that I would personally prefer compile time checks instead of putting the load onto the client.
Thanks. Likewise, I wouldn't wanna do that client-side either. This is a server-side Node app wherein I'm trying to keep the tooling to a minimum. :) I may adopt TypeScript in the future since it seems that's where the JS-world is headed...
I'm honestly not sure there are any except using a cross-compiled language. Almost everything is nowadays compiling to WASM. But there are other languages that compile directly to Javascript as well. For example dart.dev
Thanks, I think Haxe is also another option. However, I guess I'm looking for run-time type-checking modules, but doing a cursory search on npm pulls up tons of em, -- so I I'm wondering if anyone on Subreply has any recommendations there. :P
pnpm can also save space, but yeah the dep hell is a very real thing in the JS landscape. (first comment!)
Tell me about it! As someone who starts a bunch of pet projects, the `node_modules` bloat on my harddrive gets out of hand quickly. I've started to use packagephobia.com more for my node.js projects and am always looking for smaller alternatives to large popular libraries.
250kb.club is now server-side rendered thanks to svelte-kit and my naive trust in highly experimental software.
Curious; how large is the node_modules folder for a svelte-kit project? It looks awesome, but I've become more and more mindful of my harddrive space.
Replaced Fira Sans (311 KB) with Route 159 (55 KB). Even if it's not the perfect typeface, I'll keep looking for lightweight replacements.
looks good on my Windows machine!
Am i the only one who's not excited about this M1 chip? Ram is inside the chip, everything is hard soldered, you can't replace any component. I know it has been this way with macs lately but this time it's even worse. It seems to me that the sole purpose of those new chips is to make them more like iphones and ipads so that the only way to upgrade is to keep buying the newer models.
I'm also not excited, because I purposefully do not use Apple products since I don't enjoy walled gardens or highly proprietary systems. :)
Everything Microsoft touches turns to dust. Nokia, Minecraft, Skype, Yammer, LinkedIn, GitHub and list will go on.
I looked into Zig today but even the HelloWorld changes in each version because they can't decide on the naming. Sorry, I have to wait for the 1.0 then.
I'd like to get into systems programming, but all the options seem so daunting to a JavaScript user such as myself. :(
After 2 days running Miniflux 2.0.23 on my Raspberry 2 Model B, I can say it's running pretty nice ! Sometimes when trying to display the original content of an RSS entry it take 2-3 seconds, not really an issue !
Thanks for the update!! I'm going to by a Pi sometime this month to start testing my projects. :) Thank you so much.
Kakoune. It's like Vim but the other way around.
This looks awesome. But can you enlighten me by what you mean by "Vim the other way around"?
it was running on a beefey host at OVH, but it will soon run on my Raspberry Pi, I will be able to tell you how it runs (:
Awesome. Do keep me posted! ...Or just post an update on Subreply when you do. :)
Big fan of Miniflux but I was using Inoreader before (:
Miniflux looks awesome. How do you host it? I keep running into great self-hostable software, but then get stuck wondering if it'd be cheaper to run it from a Raspberry Pi or just paying for a VPS.
I've never been a big RSS Reader user but Fraidycat looks just too good.
Your post inspired my question! :)
