wow, joker is written in Go

j0ni17:07:22

I mean, fair enough, but oof

j0ni17:07:06

anyone else being offered hundreds of package updates by melpa after the new server got spun up?

colliderwriter20:07:10

@j0ni yes, and confirmed by others

j0ni20:07:25

@colliderwriter yeah, I made https://github.com/melpa/melpa/issues/5644 and milkypostman confirmed my suspicion

lilactown22:07:18

i've been toying with an idea for a build tool/task runner and am thinking of using either common lisp or go

nenadalm05:07:22

You can try compiling Clojure into native binary using GraalVM if startup is your only concern. It's way faster than Clojure on JVM or ClojureScript on NodeJS (https://github.com/nenadalm/hours-counter#graalvm-recommended).

lilactown05:07:28

I did that, but got uneasy about distribution

lilactown05:07:21

I don’t think I’d be able to distribute binaries myself and asking people to install graal to compile it might not be okay either, and doesn’t feel right

lilactown05:07:42

maybe if the free version had macos native-image support

benedek14:07:34

what about the above mentioned cljs on nodejs?

lilactown15:07:30

for completely arbitrary personal reasons I want it to be a native executable 😉

lilactown15:07:43

faster startup, no dependencies on runtime versions

lilactown22:07:26

Clojure startup is just too painful
