[racket-users] Announcing something Kinda FRP-y

2020-01-26 Thread Sage Gerard
Announcing a new package: kinda-ferpy. Here's a [write-up](https://sagegerard.com/kinda-ferpy-intro.html). It implements the spreadsheet metaphor in an expressive way, based on MaiaVictor's excellent [PureState library](https://github.com/MaiaVictor/PureState). It's not a complete functional

Nice, I'll actually be competing with a flavor of MaiaVictor's library for reactive models. Time travel is a great add! Original Message On Jan 26, 2020, 3:07 PM, Christopher Lemmer Webber wrote: > Not the most interesting part of Spritely Goblins (that is in the >

Not the most interesting part of Spritely Goblins (that is in the async/distributed stuff, to-be-demo'ed), but something I wrote about recently and maybe I should link here too: https://dustycloud.org/blog/goblins-time-travel-micropreview/ Of course, as functional programmers, time-travel

If he is using React for a new project, I suggest using React Hooks. React Hooks were introduced in 2018 and "feels more functional" than their previous approach. https://reactjs.org/docs/hooks-intro.html /Jens Axel Den søn. 26. jan. 2020 kl. 18.12 skrev 'John Clements' via Racket Users <

I am unsure: this system is an Origin 350 with 8gb RAM and 4x700mhz MIPS. Does Racket expect more? Thanks! Eric On Jan 26, 2020, 9:00 AM -0500, Matthew Flatt , wrote: > And you have enough memory, and there's no system-imposed memory limit > --- as reported by `ulimit -a` in bash, for example? >

And you have enough memory, and there's no system-imposed memory limit --- as reported by `ulimit -a` in bash, for example? (Maybe a dumb question, but the last IRIX machine I used, decades ago, would not have had enough memory to build modern Racket.) At Sun, 26 Jan 2020 05:48:15 -0800 (PST),

That was (mostly) the problem. I hard-coded the paths in mzssl.rkt, and it proceeded. Next, it errors with "out of memory": raco setup: making: /deinprogramm-signature/deinprogramm/signature (DeinProgramm - Signatures) raco setup: in /deinprogramm-signature/deinprogramm/signature raco setup:

For learning JavaScript these two resources are very good: Eloquent JavaScript https://eloquentjavascript.net/ You Don't Know JS https://github.com/getify/You-Dont-Know-JS The tutorial on the React site itself is pretty good and provides a solid foundation in the framework -

Were you looking specifically for a video course that covers both? I can recommend some very good resources for JavaScript as a language and how to wield it (in book form). React gets dicier as its a constantly moving target. On Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 1:56:57 PM UTC-5, 'John Clements'

Hi Gustavo, Thanks for getting back to me. It is definitely a GhostBSD / TrueOS thing. My masochistic tendencies persuaded me to reinstall a FreeBSD desktop and lo and behold everything is OK. I was running it in DrRacket. cheers, greadey On Saturday, 25 January 2020 18:30:31 UTC, gustavo
