I've probably asked this before, but I didn't make a note and google isn't helping...

otfrom13:05:55

If I wanted to use lumo for the kind of scripting things I do w/ bash/awk/sed is there something I should read? Is it lumo or a node tutorial I need to be looking at?

otfrom14:05:44

which makes me think that I need to be looking at a node tutorial and think a lot about interop (which is fine, but then I'm wondering which node things I should be reading)

otfrom14:05:03

npm install of lumo 1.5.0 went very well. Nice experience. :slightly_smiling_face:

otfrom15:05:42

and found the node api docs here: https://nodejs.org/api/

otfrom15:05:49

(I know this is all numpty stuff)

otfrom15:05:23

ah, and this little example will get me going https://dzone.com/articles/execute-unix-command-nodejs

anmonteiro15:05:39

Glad it went well

otfrom15:05:05

@anmonteiro thx for making it really smooth

anmonteiro15:05:06

Yeah, most stuff you wanna look at for now is Node.js

anmonteiro15:05:41

Eventually we'll have CLJS idiomatic wrappers for that stuff

otfrom15:05:05

a lot of my scripting is dealing w/dates, talking to aws, calling unix commands and processing text (from files or stdin). So as long as I can do that, then I can start to use lumo on a daily basis and that is where I'd like to be

otfrom15:05:09

@anmonteiro even just knowing that you expect that I should use node things via interop is a really good steer. Knowing that you want to move towards idiomatic cljs stuff is even better. :smile:

anmonteiro15:05:45

We do have some CLJS namespaces already though

anmonteiro15:05:01

Problem is they're not documented anywhere... yet

otfrom15:05:08

where would I find out about those? I'd like to follow your example :smile:

otfrom15:05:20

and where are you starting to document. Happy to wikignome as I go along

anmonteiro15:05:40

Entire CLJS & Closure is there, Transit, Fipp, and more

anmonteiro15:05:06

They'll eventually be documented in a website to which people can send PRs

anmonteiro15:05:41

Bear with me for now, I'll have something to show soonish

anmonteiro15:05:54

The website is definitely a priority

otfrom15:05:24

@anmonteiro not hassling at all just offering to help

otfrom15:05:30

:slightly_smiling_face:

anmonteiro15:05:16

Totally, I didn't think you were

anmonteiro15:05:50

Very recursive ^

anmonteiro15:05:11

One of goals of making a website is also including something like: https://twitter.com/kommen/status/867374036006952961

anmonteiro15:05:42

I wonder if I can make people try Lumo out entirely online, hoping it's not more trouble than it's worth

anmonteiro15:05:13

Gonna play with it a little bit since it's a long weekend here
