i'm assuming @borkdude gets a metric ton of #gratitude around here, but holy heck #babashka is awesome and @borkdude is incredibly helpful and responsive. I just rebuilt a tool at [newjob] that i had built in kotlin at [oldjob] to do a simple command line timezone thingy, and it runs faster in babashka than it did in the jvm. we're making more and more use of babashka for small, quick tools on our team, and it's a godsend where lein has been used (super slowly) for almost everything. it's lovely to be able to use the same language for scripting that we use for servers, and easy to transition between them, instead of having a mix of gnarly make and sh scripts.

I just rewrote a polybar script to display weather information in my desktop, combining data from weather-cli and a thermometer sensor. From bash that I cobbled together and barely understood to Clojure using babashka. I feel that I can do anything now, it's amazing!

He's also reacting with a speed of light. And I'm not kidding here. Few days ago I submitted a very small PR and he managed to merge it before Github page got reloaded. He has some superpowers or I don't know what 😄
