    Hello everyone!
    Amazing project, I'm keeping my noob fingers crossed
    Does anyone here seen if someone made guix channel for emacs-ng? I'm part of System Crafters youtube channel crowd, and there seem to be a lot of traction going with exwm and guix, but no love for emacs-ng so far, I want to try to change it

    @DavidDeSimone Could you checkout the CI build error? I don't know why it can fetch deno dependency. I can't reproduce it in my local machine.

    @smallstepman I like the idea, but I'm not sure the project is already interesting for users. We are currently trying to make the project more appealing for potential contributors by adding more docs. IMO emacs-ng has great potential for all kind of new features or improving existing ones. If we can show the community those possibilities in a video/blog post, it certainly could help the project.

    EmacsConf 2021 is about to start the engine.

    Just saying, if anyone would like to bring something to the upcoming Request For Proposals ... ;-)

    I think I also would do a terrible disservice if I go on stage and show emacs-ng :-))
    But perhaps someone with more knowledge and able to showcase some of the cool things that will be possible once it's ready for general usage :-)

    Anyone else noticing issues with webrenders ability to render org notes ? In particular TODO's and unordered lists don't look right (symbol bleeding). I'm planning on creating an issue but will take some time as I can't share my work notes (where it is most apparent) and its most obvious in examples with longer lists so I'll have to create a long example note to share what I'm seeing.

    I'm the user of org notes too. I will debug it once you update more information.

    Hello everyone! I'm discovering emacs-ng and trying to understand its goals from a practical point of view. I hope you don't mind me asking a few questions:

    I understand that emacs-ng brings the possibility to run TS/JS and that this brings a great performance improvement.

    However, I'm not quite certain if the project aims at replacing emacs implementation parts written in Elisp. I read that the aim is not to replace Elisp entirely, but does this mean that we don't touch Elisp stuff at all, or does it just mean that emacs-ng will always support Elisp, but that "under the hood", stuff may run on TS/JS instead?

    In addition - assuming that the emacs plugin ecosystem is still dominated by Elisp - where can we expect actual performance improvements (as long as plugins are not being migrated to TS/JS)?

    assuming that the emacs plugin ecosystem is still dominated by Elisp

    (adding my .2 cents) one of the non-goals of emacs-ng is encouraging a rewrite of the existing ecosystem of Elisp code. Elisp and the existing packages are here to stay.

    The new async Deno runtime will enable writing new modules that should overcome the limitations of the current fundamentally single-threaded Emacs we have today
    (and making writing modules more accessible leveraging the existing widespread knowledge of JavaScript, TypeScript, Rust)

    native build?
    brotzeit
    @brotzeit
    this looks like missing deno bindings, how did you run configure ?
    we had this before but I hoped it's fixed by now
    it's always worth a try to run git clean -xfd and compile again
    Wojciech Niedźwiedź
    @Niedzwiedzw
    umm
    ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make -j 8
    that's the command I'm running @brotzeit
    (breadtime :))

    @gtrunsec:matrix.org can I build using docker somehow?

    [m]
    yes, @Niedzwiedzw try having a look here:
    https://emacs-ng.github.io/emacs-ng/build/docker/
    I'm not super sure it works, I was having some annoyances couple of days ago, couldnt yet circle back on this
    Wojciech Niedźwiedź
    @Niedzwiedzw
    hmmm I'm on manjaro though
    so .deb won't help
    ok but I'll try @brotzeit suggestion first

    👋 folks, do you think it's possible or someone tried to create a major mode in JS/TS ?
    brotzeit
    @brotzeit
    @wolf4ood:matrix.org good question
    @DavidDeSimone is that possible ?
