i think i'm going to work tonight a bit on the new hoplon brand, does anyone have logo ideas?

onetom00:09:59

alandipert: what does hoplon mean? a shield like mentioned in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspis ? why?

alandipert00:09:47

@onetom: well, we made javelin first and named it after the 80s spreadsheet

alandipert00:09:13

as it is an ancient greek weapon we stayed with the theme, finding other good names

alandipert00:09:34

hoplon seemed distinctive and memorable

alandipert00:09:53

also hoplites, the warriors that used them, were kind of crafty and scrappy

alandipert00:09:15

but yeah, the logos i've been considering have been aspis designs

alandipert00:09:15

there is the spartan uppercase lambda shield also http://www.timetrips.co.uk/gw-reenact-rank.jpg

alandipert00:09:54

appropriate because of lambda calculus, but would not have been used by hoplites

alandipert00:09:10

oh wait, spartans were also hoplites

onetom01:09:31

yeah, that lambda shield came up a couple of times on google image search... it's also simple to draw...

onetom01:09:17

not by hand though because u dont have a white pen so u have to draw a negative..

micha01:09:41

i like the legs

onetom01:09:54

those are creepy, no? :simple_smile:

onetom01:09:01

especially the 3 legs

onetom01:09:14

looks like a battlefield aaafter the fact :simple_smile:

onetom01:09:41

if i have:

(defn somefun []
  (with-init!
    (js* "console.log('a'); console.log('b');")))
the generated code is:
some.namespace.somefun = (function some$namespace$somefun(){
return hoplon.core.add_initfn_BANG_.call(null,(function (){
return console.log('a'); console.log('b');;
}));
});
now guess what happens to console.log('b'); ... it won't get executed :simple_smile:

onetom01:09:04

thats why my google analytics script didn't kick in...

alandipert01:09:23

interesting but also lame!

onetom01:09:30

@onetom: thanks for flexbox. It is quite new though, so browser support isn't the best

onetom14:09:47

@xifi: http://caniuse.com/#search=flexbox if u hover over some of the rectangles u can see usage percentages per browser versions

onetom14:09:34

if u r developing for an audience who is restricted to use some ancient shit browsers, then indeed it might not be an option. but in practice those users are probably a rounding error. btw, r u hungarian too?

xifi15:09:40

@onetom: thanks I'll take a look at it. I had another suggestion from @martinklepsch on http://basscss.com so now I have 2 things to think about

xifi15:09:11

@onetom: yes and no, I am from the hungarian minority in Slovakia

onetom15:09:34

close enough. im from the hungarian minority of south east asia. at least since 2007 :wink:

onetom15:09:58

we are using http://semantic-ui.com/ at the company i work for, but i guess it's time to extend my horizon a bit, so i will look into this basscss too.

martinklepsch16:09:36

basscss is awesome guys!

I'm still pretty much a beginner w/ build tools and related topics. I'm trying to use clj-firmata in a project that has both project.clj and .boot files and things work fine with "lein repl", "boot repl", or "lein deps"... But when I try "boot development" or "boot deps", I get: "? Caused by: Could not find artifact com.sparetimelabs:purejavacomm:jar:0.0.22 in http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/ (http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/)" Any suggestions?

martinklepsch19:09:15

@john_tollison: is this a hoplon project?

martinklepsch19:09:03

There’s a designated #C053K90BR channel (just fyi).

john_tollison19:09:40

started as a hoplon project... then started testing it other ways.

john_tollison19:09:46

Oh, ok, I'll try the boot channel
