Scripting in Haskell and PureScript. Because why not?! The joy of FPs at the command-line…
My Lisp Experiences and the Development of GNU Emacs. Whether you like the guy (or what his public interventions have become) or not, this is an interesting read for those interested in the road to Lisp.
Nice account of Kimura’s contribution to molecular population genetics (via Vince Buffalo).
Thanks to John Cook, I ended up re-reading programming in the twenty-first century, and a few other articles written by James Hague.
Yet another blog full of nice code and great explanations. Check the associated Gihub repo as well.
First blog I found where the author is interested both in R and Racket.
Text-only version of R5RS. Very handy for browsing right into your preferred text editor.
(N)vim annoys me too. WTF with the working directory and the way we twist ourselves to close a single buffer?! Time to go back to Morden i Sandhamn, or I guess so.
I stopped posting a while ago but Twitter starts to annoy me beyond the limit. It’s probably time to take a break.
Last week I discovered an interesting side-effect, or bug to put it simply, in Emacs/LSP (I’m using Doom Emacs but I don’t think it is relevant here). The LSP package has a nice utility to show code outline in a sidebar (much like the goold old
imenu-sidebar that was once available in Doom Emacs). Together with NerdTree (or Treemacs if it suits you better), you get the same look’n feel as what’s available in VS Code or Atom. Now, what if I tell you that once I activate the LSP package, you get code outline for free in all other modes, including Lisp or Racket?
Those who follow me know that I’m not a tidyverse’s addict. This may help others to mitigate the issues, or simply to transition to an efficient framework for processing data frames in R: A data.table and dplyr tour.
