Does anyone use Lua predominantly? I'm currently learning it (along with Love2D) and admit I actually really like the syntax and the everything-is-a-table design. Admittedly it has its quirks. I'm wondering why the Lua ecosystem and community is so small compared to other dynamically typed programming languages? I tried installing LuaRocks and installing packages via it on my Windows machine and surprised how it just does not work, and how little support their is.
I learned about it while having fun with PICO-8. It's a lovely language, good design and simple.
Hello world, so clean!
hello there! Welcome :)
Going to bed early is an act of self-care, isn't it? Good night!
It definitely. I'll do the same actually! Good night to you :)
What is the best time of day? For me it is 11pm-3am. There' s something special about those hours.
To me, things get in another dimension at midnight :)
Do you play any TTRPGs or board games? What do you play?
I used to do role-playing games with my friends. It was loads of fun.
Here you go friend!
This is absolutely awesome!
Hello ! I come back from some holidays and now I'm wondering if it would be worth it to learn vi/vim keybindings (maybe change my IDE when possible with some vim/neovim, install keybinding in other editors) ? If yes, what method would you recommend to me to learn them ?
I used to watch destroyallsoftware... - he uses vim in a very nice way, and it gives an overview of how an advanced vim user writes code.
I'm doing good. But I have a problem. I need to leave but the cat on my lap is sleep-purring.
now i want to have a cat as well! Are you still using twtxt by the way? I still haven't gotten to the point where I'm hosting my file.
Pretty good despite the amount of cheese I've been heaping onto my food this week. I should be banned from buying more but instead I just went shopping and found a bunch of applewood, brie, and spicy stuff on clearance..
haha cheese is life, like we say in France. ;) What's your favorite?
anyone use mastodon or pleroma or a fediverse equivalent? the more i use Subreply, the more I realize I like Subreply better. probably because the community is so tiny and the posts aren't as low effort as the ones twitter/mastodon seems to encourage.
I'm more happy on subreply than on the fediverse side. I think people in here are more happy to engage and discuss with one another, but it feels like people on fediverse are more there to broadcast.
are you using twtxt now?
Not yet actually. I still need to host my file... Will get to that soon :)
what's your favorite tiny framework? i recently used polka (node.js) for a project and enjoyed it. also i gave a whirl a couple weeks ago and found it pleasant. loved that it included its own templating engine.
I remember, a GUI framework in ruby that's very simple to use. Brings lots of nostalgia!
I think it's the most elegant thing I've seen in a while.
You got me curious and I've installed it :) What's your URL?
What an happy day ! How will you setup it ? Which OS ?
I went with Fedora :)
Are there any twtxt users here? (
It's on my list of things to try, but haven't had the chance yet. What do you think about it so far?
So today I spent a few hours creating a web app that shows you how basic your taste in music is: niklasbuehler.gith...
Haha that's an awesome idea. Somehow, I'm only listening to the same 10 tracks on Spotify.
