I’ve published two new packages for Emacs: - region-bindings.el and common-lisp-modes.el. Both are quite small and were a part of my configuration for a long time, but after small refactoring of my init.el I’ve decided to extract them. The first one, region-bindings is a from-scratch re-implementation of region-bindings-mode.
Another post in the not-so-series about Emacs configuration. Today I will describe my configuration for managing the compilation-error-regexp-alist variable in a way that is meaningful for the current project I’m working on. Some time ago I faced a problem that the compilation-error-regexp-alist variable contains far too many entries for different languages by default.
I’ve been into clojure.core.async lately, and I like the overall design of this library - it’s simple and easy to understand. However, at work, we use manifold in our projects, mainly because it is supported by the aleph server, which was chosen because it can asynchronously read data coming from the client.
Note: I’m not an expert in type systems, and my knowledge of compilers is limited. This is more of an actual random thought I had for some time, and I’ve just decided to capture it here, not to be used as an argument on static vs dynamic types.
Another year ends, so it’s time to gather my thoughts together and reflect on everything that happened this year. This was a decent year, despite all the bad things that have happened around the world. And it was a very loud year too - one event after another without any breaks, all of which are covered in all of the media.
This is a follow-up to my previous post regarding the bug in the clojure.core.async/pipeline-async function. As I’ve mentioned at the end of that post, I’ve submitted a patch to Ask Clojure that should fix the off by two error for the asynchronous pipeline.
Quite recently I’ve been working on my asynchronous programming library for Fennel, and fiddling with clojure.core.async at the same time for my other project. I’ve found an interesting function, called pipeline-async, which seemed to be a good fit for my task. Here’s the documentation for this function:
I have a somewhat weird tradition if it can be called like that - I’m revisiting job pre-interview tasks after a certain amount of time I’ve spent working in the company that gave the task. It’s an interesting thing to do, and I think more people should do it on a more regular basis.
When it comes to software I prefer things that are simple and small, even though I’m using Emacs. This is mainly the reason why my favorite languages are Clojure and Fennel. However, it doesn’t end on programming languages themselves, I like small tools in general.
In Emacs version 28 Emacs developers introduced so-called read symbol shorthands. If you’re interested in the rationale, feel free to search the Emacs developer mailing list for the discussion. However, it does seem that not everyone likes the idea of shorthands as a substitution for namespaces (or packages, if you’re coming from Common Lisp).
