    I may do bug fix or two, and I can definitely help if someone wants to implement something
    yeah, I really love that project

    @aalex675
    Can you help me understand what the specific issues are moving forward? perhaps there is something I could work on
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    for Ammy to become mainstream it needs to be cross platform
    so it has to target .NET Standard
    but Nemerle is compiled against .NET 4.6
    and I doubt it can be compiled with Standard
    aalex675
    @aalex675
    What is Nemerle?
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    the language which Ammy was developed with
    also, Ammy can't import .NET Standard references
    so it needs a new backend
    aalex675
    @aalex675
    Looks like Nemerle is dead?
    How does Nemerle work, does it compile to IL?
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    yes, it's a compiler
    same as C#
    here is what backend looks like
    it loads type information from the assembly and converts them into Nitra symbols
    aalex675
    @aalex675
    How difficult to just convert this code to C#?
    How much of Ammy is written in this language?
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    basically impossible
    whole language part is written in Nemerle using Nitra language framework
    and it's a lot of code
    there needs to be a more realistic goal
    if it's just supporting .NET Standard references, then it's more or less doable
    just a lot of work still
    complete rewrite would take a lot of time
    by this point I'm more or less convinced that it's easier to migrate to coded UI than to alternative XAML language
    something like this https://github.com/ionoy/Ammy2

    Purchased your superb Live Xaml yesterday and trying to capture info for expenses - are you based in the EU?
    Chris
    @furesoft
    could you make it available for avaloniaui?
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    @rsuk yes
    @furesoft doesn't it already work with Avalonia? I remember doing something about that
    Chris
    @furesoft
    hmm could you port it to vs2019?

    Another XAML basded framework https://platform.uno/ :)

    @ionoy
    @furesoft I'm very deep into LiveSharp development at the moment. Can you try building Ammy at your end?
    Chris
    @furesoft
    hi, is ammy dead?
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    hey @furesoft
    mosty, yes
    Chris
    @furesoft
    but why, i think ammy is a great project
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    I'm not planning on continuing development any time soon
    it's a very time-consuming project with a very few users
    Chris
    @furesoft
    do you know a similar project? i like the json like syntax and it could be workable with avalonia ui
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    not that I know of...
    I've made a prototype for C#-based Ammy a year ago https://github.com/ionoy/ammy2
    it can be ported to any XAML platform as well
    and it's much easier to develop since you don't need to do compilers job
    Chris
    @furesoft
    but it has no json like syntax, its bad that i have my own big projects, if i hadnt i would make my own compiler
    Mihhail Maslakov
    @ionoy
    it gets complicated once you add strong typing
    Chris
    @furesoft
    thats true
