I'm leaving Clojure for now to transition into arts 😉 here's a 45min presentation of my portfolio if you're interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0_ZC-7PCoE (unlisted, but feel free to share, there are enought backups)

I've been thinking about opening a pull-request on https://github.com/github/linguist to change the color associated with Clojure on Github (currently: #db5855) Of course, according to their https://github.com/github/linguist/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#changing-the-color-associated-with-a-language that should only happen after the Clojure community at large reach a consensus about the matter. So what do you think? Any ideas / advice / opinions ? • where to even start • how / if to ultimately put this to vote • whether it's a non-issue and a waste of time to care about

Maybe post a print of the current and the suggested new one?

I really don't care but the home of Clojure (Nubank) is quite strongly allied with purple #8600C9 :)

Alex Miller (Clojure team)04:05:30

I guess the logo colors would be natural too

I'd love a cat! But 2 problems, 1. I'm VERY allergic 2. I'd be mad if they scratched everything.

Stuart13:05:49

But if i could get a hypoallergenic cat that understands that nice things cost money, I'd be happy.

Martynas M13:05:00

I think cats don't scratch too much. But they can pee....

Cora (she/her)13:05:06

I'm allergic and have had allergy shots for years and years to comfortably live with cats (we have 3)

Cora (she/her)13:05:03

they do scratch, though, but it varies from cat to cat. some will just use scratching posts while others will demolish your furniture with gusto

Cora (she/her)13:05:26

they naturally prefer litterboxes, though. our kitten is 10 weeks old and we didn't need to show her how to use it or encourage it. they naturally like to bury their waste and I guess sandy substances just make sense to them

Cora (she/her)12:05:33

we just got a new kitten

after it grows up, you may find your keyboard piped through cat, like it happens to m'colleague from time to time... https://twitter.com/nid90/status/1523320805718855682

and I'm sure at least two of them think they are bigger and badder than they are

dgb2322:05:52

Cats are awesome, but there is nothing as relaxing as a sleeping, happy dog.

Cora (she/her)14:05:51

oh I know that pain already. one inches ever closer to the keyboard like I can't see him if he moves slowly then does a full plop onto my hands

was there not a tool where I say input and output examples and it says the function? Would also be interested in some generic thing that gives me the alg in python or javascript or anything

Bart Kleijngeld15:05:43

Not sure if this is what you're referring to, but it reminds me of this talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyfBQmvr2Hc

Hello dear Clojurians! Is there somebody who play Go?

emccue22:05:32

I watched 3 episodes of Hikaru No Go when I was in elementary school and kept insisting people play it with me at summer camp and then stopped the next year.

emccue22:05:38

I would be delighted to play

rbuchmann11:05:05

I’m a Go player 🙂 Always happy to play as well https://online-go.com/player/1023373/ (Handicap or not, but I prefer correspondence games)

mauricio.szabo22:05:46

On the same page, is there someone who play Shogi? 🙂 I play go but I'm awfully bad at it. As for Shogi, I'm marginally better (and I also find more interesting 😄)

mauricio.szabo22:05:09

Go is too hard for me :thinking_face:. I admire a lot people who play it, because usually when I play is something like "wow, I'm winning, and hey, now I'm losing and have no hope of winning ever again"...

I only recently discovered how great RSS is. And not even for actual reading, but for personal curation (I like visiting websites). I'm completely in control and it's way more ubiquitous than I imagined. Learning about it sent me down a seemingly infinite rabbit hole of awesome stuff. I was always a fan of the web, because it is empowering, but I see it in a different light now. (edit: found a spelling mistake)

p-himik23:05:28

Could you elaborate a bit more? How exactly are you using it?

dgb2323:05:02

I'm not even using it yet. I've been learning about it and now writing a personalized RSS client in Clojure. The initial plan is to hand-pick feeds and categorize them into roughly three buckets. One for reading/visiting blogs I like (with a read/visited flag), one for browsing and discovery from feeds that aggregate and news feeds and one for updates about things I want to keep track of. All of the above are now spread across social media silos, email notifications and so on. I want a curated personal view of these things that are completely opt-in and controlled by me, which RSS gives me. Secondly this has finally motivated me to start a blog, to give back and to communicate on the web in a more delibarate fashion.

p-himik23:05:10

Thanks!

dgb2323:05:21

Also there is a whole world around this. There is the indieweb, semantic web, wikidata, activitypub... All things that I never really appreciated or even learned about.

emccue00:05:20

This thread is reminding me i should set up rss for my blog

emccue00:05:28

and also maybe check out what you are talking about

emccue00:05:13

@U01EFUL1A8M > Secondly this has finally motivated me to start a blog, to give back and to communicate on the web in a more delibarate fashion. If you want i can send you the bb script i use for this. http://mccue.dev

dgb2300:05:19

@U3JH98J4R I like to write something of my own. Your site looks great though, if you provide RSS/atom I will definitely subscribe 😄

emccue00:05:27

what rss reader do you use?

emccue00:05:38

(I don't use one)

dgb2300:05:24

I writing my own currently - probably naive but it seems simple enough. There are OSS libraries for parsing atom/rss and displaying and keeping track of things seems basic enough.

dgb2300:05:46

There are plenty of good ones it seems though.

dgb2300:05:19

Also I care specifically more about the curation/feed aspect than the reading aspect. Some sources I can imagine just reading directly from the feed, but I don't typically mind visiting websites.

emccue00:05:28

and I used pandoc for the site - even converts my grandma's recipie word docs https://mccue.dev/recipes/mary_mathews/english%20muffins

pandoc is quite amazing

@U3JH98J4R The feed parser I use (ROME) doesn't recognise your feed correctly. You might miss some important headers, like content type.

teodorlu09:05:17

@U3JH98J4R if you don't mind me popping in - might I ask how you're building your website? Is it open source? The output looked a lot like pandoc, but I'm curious if you're just assembling the site "by hand" with CLI commands, or if you're using something higher level.

emccue19:05:30

@U01EFUL1A8M okay I'll get to it tonight or tommorow and ask you to check after

emccue19:05:20

@U3X7174KS pandoc with a bb script. I don't mind sharing it, but 90% of my commits are "..." So the repo isn't public
