Replugging this here for visibility:

Some projects i worked on in the last year, that you might find interesting:

Koios - a universal database-free file tagger
(gitlab.com/finnoleary/koios)

Zhmenu - a robust featureful dmenu-like replacement and input method
(gitlab.com/finnoleary/zhmenu)

Wisp - A fast, smart, lispy HTML output language
(gitlab.com/finnoleary/wisp-new)

SpotifyC (WIP) - C Interface to the Spotify Web API and Spotify command line client
(gitlab.com/finnoleary/spotifyc)

Boosts would be deeply appreciated as more users = less bugs.

@alexandria Can you make a magically convert an old website in to something modern and responsive using machine learning? That would be really useful. Otherwise I am going to have to do yet another responsive design course..... 😉

@asjmcguire @alexandria There are ways to generate websites from photoshop design files, I dunno if that fits your needs c:

@alexandria @alexandria Nah, I'm only half serious. This is a mammoth site from 2006 - I keep watching to modernise and turn into a PWA, but you know... life and stuff 😛

@alexandria Wow so much amazing code! The FLOSS community is such an incredible evergreen gift. It's a great time to be alive and a techie, isn't it ? :) Wisp looks really neat. It reminds me of a much more elegant version of the now dead Water programming language (Which is dead because it was proprietary and nobody cared :) informit.com/articles/article.

@alexandria Heh! yeah. There were some neat ideas their but choosing XML as their syntax? Whuf. Not fun. S-expressions feel like a much more elegant and expressive choice!

@alexandria I mean, there are some contexts where it's actually the right tool (specifically contexts where you need to be able to create arbitrarily complex yet deeply validate-able schema for your data) but that's an AWFULLY big hammer and 99% of the time you're driving a framing nail :)

@alexandria A lot of neat projects. There's another Lisp project called wisp (small world):
