@plexus awesome job on the consuming JS libs episode

anmonteiro11:10:30

one addition I would do in the part about consuming modules with :module-type is that :refer will work great then

plexus11:10:27

Good point! Maybe you can leave a comment on the video?

anmonteiro11:10:13

@plexus do comments support Markdown?

anmonteiro11:10:19

or is it just plain text?

anmonteiro11:10:52

or rather, is there a way I can link to the above in a nice way?

plexus11:10:52

To be honest comments are only text at the moment. I haven't gotten to making it markdown yet because then I have to sanitize to prevent xss...

plexus11:10:42

Let me see how quickly I can set that up

anmonteiro11:10:44

Doesn’t seem like a very urgent addition anyway :slightly_smiling_face:

anmonteiro11:10:03

I’ll just leave the link there no problem

plexus11:10:20

@anmonteiro deploying markdown support as we speak :slightly_smiling_face:

plexus12:10:14

just had to add whitelist based filtering of tags and attributes: https://gist.github.com/plexus/3a91e7cb399d22f6dcabcb35dd1e4204

@plexus: The re-frame intro was very good, looking forward to the next ones!

plexus13:10:29

@shaun-mahood thanks! I'll probably cover subscriptions and events more in depth in the next two episodes

shaun-mahood13:10:35

Great - my conj talk on re-frame got accepted, so if you can make about 40 minutes of re-frame videos before it's due then I can just go up to the front and hit play! ;)

plexus13:10:09

haha nice, sure I'll get on it straight away :wink:

plexus13:10:15

one thing I'm curious about, I've tried to keep a "show don't tell" style for this episode, simply demonstrating how to make things work, without diving too much into how that works under the hood

plexus13:10:30

this is a big contrast from the re-frame docs, which start with reaction, and build up from there

plexus13:10:25

you notice towards the end of the episode that it gets especially hand-wavy when talking about cofx and effect maps, I can imagine that part wasn't too enlightening for people not already familiar with re-frame

plexus13:10:18

but for most of the video I had the feeling this approach worked well. I think this approach aligns well with how people learn, at first you need patterns that you can apply, once you need to get beyond those basic recipes you already have a better mental framework and motivation to study what lies beneath

plexus13:10:08

but so I'm curious how people liked that... was it easy enough to follow? Or did you have the feeling I wasn't telling you the whole story?

shaun-mahood16:10:22

I liked the style, but I have a pretty good idea of the material so I'm probably not a great test case. The general pacing and production quality was excellent, too!
