@belmarca
What are you working on? Is this for work?
amirouche
@amirouche
somewhat, I am tryingto build a search engine + platform for sharing datasets
I am on my own full time on this project
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
ok
do you even need JS for this?
amirouche
@amirouche
yes for the frontend, why?
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
not sure, there's a lot you can do with templating
anyway most of what I would think of involve the backend, not really the js frontend library
I guess for a PoC you can take a feature from a known library and reproduce it
amirouche
@amirouche
yes, templating works great, I want to show everything scheme has to offer.
that's why I want to try the javascript backend
amirouche
@amirouche
What is the purpose of g_poll and g_pollcount?
never mind. I found the bug I was looking for. Actually, the javascript backend doesn't error if a variable is used but undefined.
it doesn't error at compile time.
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@amirouche just add -warnings to the gsc -link command line to get the list of undefined global variables
@amirouche for an app, how about a multiplayer card game? for card images, check out the SVG at http://codeboot.org/cards
amirouche
@amirouche
tx
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
Or a virtual DOM
amirouche
@amirouche
@belmarca I am relying on reactjs
Randall Gray
@snarkypenguin
I'm trying to make an interface to the Proj library for handling geographic coordinates, but I am having trouble with "const" parameters ... usually things like constant character strings, but sometimes more exotic. Is there a "const" indicator I can use when defining C types?
I plan on a netCDF interface too, but proj seemed easier to start with ;-)
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@snarkypenguin unfortunately const is not supported by the C interface... it has been on my todo for a while. most C compilers have a switch to not treat the absence of const as an error, so this might be a workable temporary measure
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@amirouche yes I'll reboot the server later today (actually turned it off yesterday due to overheating and forgot to turn it back on)
Randall Gray
@snarkypenguin
Thankyou, I didn't even think of that (randall smack his forehead foolishly). When it is working and tested, I'd like to contribute it to the dumping ground.
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@snarkypenguin I'm sure a better place than the dumping ground can be found for your module. more on this later...
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
@feeley Are you going to release a package manager?
:)
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@belmarca would you use it if there was one?
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
yes if that means more code sharing :)
Marc Feeley
@feeley
more on this will be presented at the "Gambit at 30" meeting... for details see https://mailman.iro.umontreal.ca/pipermail/gambit-list/2019-July/009117.html
amirouche
@amirouche
yeah! Eager to read more about all those new stuff!
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
are there any presentations scheduled for Gambit at 30?
Marc Feeley
@feeley
yes... and maybe one of them is from you!
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
I suppose that could make the other presentations that much more interesting :laughing:
you can contact me if you are looking for presenters
Marc Feeley
@feeley
I am looking for presenters... you have been contacted... your move...
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
Ok then
Marc Feeley
@feeley
there will be 20-ish participants, so it is possible (and it would be nice) if everyone has something to present
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
OK, if you have some place to register the subject that could eliminate possible duplicates.
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
something related that could help is publishing a roadmap or to-do list, other than the current github issues.
amirouche
@amirouche
the issues are good enough, maybe add some issues for the existing task with a help needed flag
I started working on the JavaScript backend, and keep updating the issue 404
The roadmap could be announced on the mailling list tho
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
well for example I see there is issue #408
That one mentions the missing syntax-rules, however I wouldn't necessarily go looking for that information inside the r7rs issue
there is one project but it is dated 2017
amirouche
@amirouche
well that is true
maybe we should go through the whole R7RS and create table and flag features that are done and those that are missing
Marc-André Bélanger
@belmarca
from what I understand there should be discussion about this in october
