ANN: Light Table alive and kicking. Just released 0.8.0 http://lighttable.com/2015/12/10/light-table-0-8-0/ . Next up the long overdue ClojureScript upgrade !

rantingbob00:12:22

@rundis: Interesting. Looks like its been a lot of building new foundations

seancorfield00:12:33

In order to workaround the nodewebkit problems (on Yosemite and later) LightTable was rebuilt on top of atom.

seancorfield00:12:57

And Atom got renamed to Electron during that process I see simple_smile

drakezhard13:12:42

@seancorfield: so does it support parinfer out of the box now?

borkdude14:12:38

I've heard from the original author of Light Table (Chris Granger) that he regretted it a bit to have written it in ClojureScript, because if he had chosen JS it's open source development would have been bigger/faster. But it seems to take off now?

cldwalker14:12:06

@drakezhard: Not yet. Since it’s a plugin, it’s just a matter of someone in the community picking it up. I know of at least one plugin author who’s eyeing it

cldwalker14:12:23

@borkdude: As one of the current maintainers, we definitely thing cljs is one of our biggest assets. We call that out at the end of the blog post

alexmiller14:12:00

congrats on the release! nice to see all the progress.

borkdude14:12:09

@cldwalker: cool, happy to hear that

cldwalker14:12:16

Thanks @alexmiller! Looking forward to reviving community interest and making LT a useful work tool

eggsyntax14:12:45

@seancorfield: what’s the deal w/ nodewebkit and Yosemite+? Is that the bug reported at https://github.com/nwjs/nw.js/issues/2723 ? I’d be interested in reading more about it if you happen to know of a useful article or discussion of it. Thanks!

Seeing all the different editors providing the same features I wonder if it wouldn't make sense to factor out that functionality into a common lib providing a usefule API for different frontends

alexmiller15:12:32

@cldwalker: I think it's great that we have a multitude of excellent Clojure environments

cldwalker15:12:41

@alexmiller Indeed! Any advice on engaging the Clojure(Script) community is welcome. I believe you know a thing or two about that simple_smile

alexmiller15:12:53

well the #C03S1L9DN channel is here :)

sventechie15:12:07

@sveri there is a bit of editor functionality abstraction going on lately — see recent parinfer developments.

sveri15:12:34

@sventechie: Yea, that's exactly what I mean, nice to see that

seancorfield17:12:37

@eggsyntax: could be that bug. Not sure. Been a long time since I was a LightTable user. The symptoms were hangs and lagginess particularly in code hints and in the file browser. I switched to building LT from source on the atom-shell branch but after a few months my team just went back to Emacs.
