Hey folks, what do you think about allowing the Unicode right arrow → as a alternative to -> to define functions? (Both being valid)
Julien Ponge
@jponge
@yloiseau I don't think it would be a good idea to allow such characters
Especially since you have fonts with ligature that turn -> to an arrow
(Hasklig, Fira Code, etc)

Hey guys, I was wondering something, what are your priorities right now?

Just asked Eclipse to enable HTTPS on our GitHub pages.
Yannick Loiseau
@yloiseau
👍
Not done as of yet
Julien Ponge
@jponge
It took a while but we have HTTPS

hey there
how one can port a java project to golo?
aolko
@aolko
porting minecraft forge would be amazing
aolko
@aolko
btw, wildcard imports support when?
Julien Ponge
@jponge
Hi
You can rewrite Java code in Golo, but there is no automated tooling for that. Also note that there are differences in the language concepts (Golo doesn't have classes, etc)
aolko
@aolko
yes, that's why i eye it
ideally, how hard it is to move https://github.com/PaperMC/Paper this java project to golo? @jponge
Julien Ponge
@jponge
@aolko hard to tell :-)
aolko
@aolko
well, i need an estimate
Julien Ponge
@jponge
I’m afraid I can’t help there
aolko
@aolko
also how fast will the end result run
and who can out of all the golo community (which is surprisingly small)?
Julien Ponge
@jponge
If you know a method for estimating converting code from lang X to Y then I’m interested ;-)
aolko
@aolko
estimating the time and effort
and btw, you need to push golo more, look at crystal, they are pushing and expanding their community
Julien Ponge
@jponge
Sorry we can’t help here.
There are obvious exceptions when languages have roughly the same semantics, like if you want to convert Java to Kotlin, Jetbrains has tooling to do straight conversions.
aolko
@aolko
Java -> Kotlin breaks horribly in some contexts
Julien Ponge
@jponge

and btw, you need to push golo more, look at crystal, they are pushing and expanding their community

We do what we can with the time constraints that we have ;-) Nobody is being paid for working on Golo. This is a best effort.

aolko
@aolko
6 years...
well, iirc most of crystal community does not get paid as well
Julien Ponge
@jponge
Again, we do what we can do. If people want to help they are always welcome.
aolko
@aolko
Word is not being spread as hard
Julien Ponge
@jponge
Going to work on a release :-)
Yannick Loiseau
@yloiseau
:+1:
I fear there is not that much since the previous one..
Julien Ponge
@jponge
There are some changes actually
That is a JDK 8 release. Clearly with JDK 11 there are 1 or 2 minor tests failing, plus the myriad of reflection warnings.
Julien Ponge
@jponge
I’ll make the release on Friday
Just read a funny thing that reminded me of @aolko’s messages in October about how we do things, or how he thinks we are not doing our job right. Here’s to you ;-) https://gist.github.com/richhickey/1563cddea1002958f96e7ba9519972d9
If you have expectations (of others) that aren't being met, those expectations are your own responsibility. You are responsible for your own needs. If you want things, make them.

Website PR ready at golo-lang/golo-lang.github.com#16 to launch the website tomorrow
The artefacts have been already published to Bintray, Maven Central and Eclipse.org

btw, can i convert a java project to golo?
