Feel like I'm at a good place to start cobalt's transition to Azure Pipelines.

Great!

As travis' free plan has reached its limit, I think it's needed

Seems to be building successfully!
https://dev.azure.com/cobalt-org/cobalt-org/_build?definitionId=2&_a=summary

I went to the extreme on testing combinations. I need to consider where to scale back

Geobert Quach
@Geobert
Indeed x) Great stuff!

Hi there, I'm going to be the elephant in the room and ask a "rude" question: Where is cobalt heading? Obviously, Ed don't have the bandwidth to work on it :( In the meantime, I see Zola flourishing and we're even seeing people migrating to it and I have to admit it begins to annoy me a little bit :-/
I love working with you Ed, though, you teach me a bunch of stuff on Rust and even in computer engineering (even it's my fulltime job for 17 years now)
So I would be sad to give up on this
Ed Page
@epage
I ask myself the same question from time to time
liquid has potential that despite it not being the most ideal template language, it is one of the few Rust runtime template engines that lets you fully customize it which I know at least cargo-generate has appreciated
As for cobalt, I have project ideas that zola can't handle and I'm thinking tuning cobalt to be able to handle. I can't remember off my head what those features are for my "private, family focused facebook" but I remember coming across them
Ed Page
@epage
While family changes have limited my time quite a bit, another challenge is the number of projects I'm involved in. I am trying to identify pause points for those projects and work towards them.
  • committed: conventional 1.0 support before pausing
  • typos: benchmarks ran and formal announcement
  • assert-rs: effectively at a pause point
  • cargo-release: reduce the number of commits and improve "is a release needed?" detection
  • stager / cargo-tarball: This is the area of most work needed
Whats not listed are some ideas I have around improving the licensing landscape. Those will also be a relatively big distraction if I move forward with them.
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
Yeah, I've seen that you're involved in many many stuff ^^ And they all are great :D
Ed Page
@epage
workspace support in cargo-release has been a big help for me
and I hope people are more excited by typos than they were for committed
(typos is a source code spell checker targeted at being run in CIs)
Funny enough, typos was originally going to be my second Rust project for learning the language until Cobalt took over all my time
So that ideas has been sitting around for years
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
I like commited idea a lot!
Ed Page
@epage
Yay! For the most part, I got crickets when releasing it
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
I don't get it, ppl like rustc for being a nitpicker, why hostilities on commit msg?
Especially when the goal it to automate Changelogs Oo
which is super duper great
Ed Page
@epage
Some people are against auto-generated changelogs. Sometimes it is because people are unfamiliar with how conventional helps. Other times, its because they aren't considering the size of the project, how thinly spread maintainers are, and that sometimes something is better than nothing (looking at you, all those Rust crates that broke compat without any changelog for me to reference to know how to update).
For the people anti-changelog generation, I'm tempted to add a feature to committed that will error if a fix, feat, or BREAKING CHANGE commit does not include a change in the changelog.
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
Pardon them, they don't see the handyness of conventional
Ed Page
@epage
Glad you found it useful rather than annoying that I forced it on you :)
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
I didn't see the point before generation of changelogs ;)
apart from having a standardised format that ease the reading
To go back to cobalt, what do you think will happen to it? For a blog, shall I move to Zola as well?
Ed Page
@epage
I hate saying this but the answer is probably "yes"
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
I'm so sad to hear this, I wanted to catch up with Zola ^^ But yeah, I feel that cobalt pace is not suiting me anymore :'(
Geobert Quach
@Geobert
Going to bed, thank you for your honesty and good luck for the future! We'll catch up on some other project one day, I'm sure :D
Ed Page
@epage
Look forward to it :)
