(btw whoever runs the Twitter should totally tweet about this and ping @FlatpakApps)
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Should we link it from the docs as well?
Ryan Gonzalez
@refi64
Yeah that's the next thing I want to do, just something related I want to finish up first
Nils Nordman
@nilnor
well whoever runs the Twitter is doing a rather bad job of it, so if any of you guys @refi64 @shalabhc would like to have access to the account and help out then I'd be more than willing to share it
I practically insist
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
I'll take it!
Happy to help.

Not sure how shared accounts works in Twitter.
Nils Nordman
@nilnor
yeah, not sure there is something special for it, but I'll have a look at setting up a shared email we can use for login
Ryan Gonzalez
@refi64
@nilnor the Howl site is down :eyes: https://howl.io
Nils Nordman
@nilnor
@refi64 thanks for the heads-up, fixed
Ryan Gonzalez
@refi64
Great, I was introducing someone on Discord to Howl and they were just like "btw the website's down"
👀
Nils Nordman
@nilnor
Yeah, it's a rare thing since it's cloudflare + s3. I was changing some dns stuff in order to get some mail going for the shared Twitter account and apparently managed to mess things up
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Any objection to me adding up monitoring (via uptime-robot or something)?
Nils Nordman
@nilnor
not at all, feel free

Hi, is howl multi-threaded/async? emacs bugs me how it locks up sometimes and I'm looking for alternative editor
Ryan Gonzalez
@refi64
@mattmeldrum It's async but not multithreaded, IME freezes are incredibly rare

also just in case anyone finds it useful, I did an editorconfig bundle https://github.com/refi64/howl-editorconfig

Hi all. I am using the Pinebook recently a lot which uses a ARM aarch64 SBC. So far my attempts to install Howl cid not work. Some problems with LuaJIT ? Do you know if there is a plan or timeline to have Howl available for aarch64?
Ryan Gonzalez
@refi64
@MarcusE1W afaik yeah LuaJIT has quite a few issues on arm64, you can maybe try out this fork of it https://github.com/siddhesh/LuaJIT/tree/v2.1

Sent PR to fix.

So ages later, I think I might have found out what it was that was causing process spawn issues on Windows https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/glib/issues/1014
Workaround is basically "spawn processes ourself there"
Now that finally found out what happened I might toy with working on that again...
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
ok nice
Got some time again going to try and finish up the command-interaction-refactor... finally!

Struggling a bit to get a simple site built locally. First middleman didn't work but I think I solved it by bundle install --path vendor/bundle. Had to add xmlrpc to the Gemfile. Now middleman can't find the layout for some reason. Lots of errors Error: Could not locate layout: blog_layout
Any ideas?
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Why is therubyracer in the Gemfile anyway?
what do we need v8 for?
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
update - have it working now.
I think we're on really old versions of middleman and stuff, FWIW
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Wonder if we should switch to https://leafo.net/sitegen/ for the site generation. Mainly because it's configured in moonscript :D

If you pull from master, this might break your code. I've tried my best to document the changes here: https://github.com/howl-editor/howl/blob/command-interaction-refactor/site/source/doc/upgrading.md. But please file bugs and/or ping me here if you have issues.
all done
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Pushing new version of the site right now (from master)
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Pushing another version with some styling changes - take a look howl.io
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
More website tweaks: added the dracula theme thumbnail to the home page. Also changed screenshots page so keyboard navigation works for next/back.
going to post to HN again, it's been a while.
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
I think we should highlight some features of Howl on the website. Right now we just have some high level philosophy at howl.io/about.html. WDYT?
Fork of luajit

@bananav
Hi, is it possible to do mark selection + forward-search in howl text editor like emacs?
Shalabh Chaturvedi
@shalabhc
Can you describe the behaviour a bit more?
