    @belmarca yes I saw that. But the only links I saw are to old google code repos

    @salotz search for the Gambit @ 30 meeting slides and videos
    some work was presented in october

    @salotz
    @belmarca awesome thanks. searching "gambit" wasn't doing it
    Marc-André Bélanger
    @belmarca
    wait a sec
    that's what you want
    salotz
    @salotz
    ya I found that
    I like how git repos are just web pages now
    Marc-André Bélanger
    @belmarca
    and lots of sites are now git repos ;)
    with netlify and others
    makes rollback and previews so much easier...

    The original Web Browser (on NeXT FFS) had every single thing as what we now call ContentEditable.
    The entire web as a Wiki!
    We're moving back that way.

    @salotz
    and that content was postscript lolol

    web page + .git + tranform to org + edit + browse = my dream. The browser is the editor (which is Gleo's main UI).

    well I'm rebuilding my employers website using gerbil to generate a static html site
    salotz
    @salotz
    now we need the fun stuff like graphics
    Marc-André Bélanger
    @belmarca
    it's a far cry from the level of integration you are talking about
    but sxml + some functions works like a charm
    I'd rather invest in Gerbil than learning a fancy CMS
    which I don't need
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    I've used CL to generate a static site (CHTML or CXML or some such thing), so both totally get it and would do the same thing.

    the hard part is the design, always, imo
    html without CSS isn't very appealing to most people
    I like plain text but try to sell that to most users
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    Yup, agreed. I'm quite skilled at that (and bootstrap helps lol), but at the same time any commercial app I've worked on has a graphic designer involved.

    @salotz
    thats why you need a good meta system for doing CSSish stuff

    I have not used photoshop in over 20 years, but they know how to present me with shiny images!
    Marc-André Bélanger
    @belmarca
    @drewc doing something original is hard. custom, from scratch CSS takes time and skill
    salotz
    @salotz
    it took don knuth and leslie lamport to make latex, so yes layout is incredibly hard
    Marc-André Bélanger
    @belmarca
    :laughing:
    "How long do you think it would take you to build this thing?"
    "On a scale of 1 to Lamport, I would say one Lamport."
    "What does that mean?"
    "I won't do it."
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    @belmarca agreed. That's another one of the big reasons clients like me on their team. Give me a photo, and I'll have it working from lynx through WebApp though Safari and Chrome
    But ask me to design such a thing? nononononono, not going to happen.
    salotz
    @salotz
    well if gerbil gets a minKanren implementation and some constraint solvers...

    @vyzo
    we can add something like that
    re: actors, check out the :std/actor library
    there are some examples in the tutorial and the guide
    but documentation is missing from the reference
    need to write that at some point

    @salotz
    also I though the adapton project was pretty cool too https://github.com/fisherdj/miniAdapton

    hi folks I hope I'm in the right place to ask a question. A few days ago I created an issue regarding compilation problems in a debian sid based container. It works well now, but the container-based executable has a dependency on libgambit.so.4 that doesn't happen when I compile the same code on my host machine.

    Compile on container -> only runnable on container itself
    Compile on host -> can run on host and on container (which I suppose is the correct behavior)

    Now I'm not sure if my expectations are wrong, my container environment is messed up or if I'm missing something else altogether. Last time I dealt with shared libraries was on college, a solid 8 years ago, so it might be that I just forgot to tweak something... can someone help me understand this?

    I've put the steps here, it just tries to compile hello.ss from the documentation: https://gist.github.com/lsmag/aeb520908cc16d475072741bcc9d21e6

    thanks in advance :pray:

    @vyzo
    this has to do with how gambit is compiled
    if it is with --enabled-shared, then there is a dependency on libgambit
    otherwise there is no dependency
    Lucas Sampaio
    @lsmag
    oh, that explains why your own Dockerfile compiled gambit itself. Thanks for the help :)
    Lucas Sampaio
    @lsmag
    this actually fixed the previous Dockerfile I had with alpine, too. It's fairly small now, if anyone happens to be interested
