Hi folks - I'm excited to say the first issue of the Opalist newsletter just went out today, and also the new website at http://opalist.co. Many thanks to Vais Salikhov for posting a link on Reddit a few days ago...I had no idea until I was getting ready to send out the newsletter today and saw there had been an influx of subscribers! If anyone has any cool links or tips for the next issue, let me know: hello@whitefusion.io

@jaredcwhite awesome stuff! just received it. I was hoping to write a few blogs about the structure of a large opal app I have (about 1.8mb of minimized javascript - very large!). its a very mature app, so I think a lot of the structure could be useful for other people thinking about large opal apps - handling routes, controllers, caching json etc

hello all, sorry for asking such a question, but anyone ever thought of a ruby vm based on opal?

@brauliobo opal (more specifically javascript) makes it difficult to support everything in ruby
a big problem would be Threads
so there are some things which we could never support

@adambeynon threads is not supported by webworkers or something on node.js?
what more would be difficult?
webworkers on node.js

@adambeynon if you have a second, any ideas on the cause of this? opal/opal#500 (I keep running into this one, and I might take a shot at fixing it for 0.8 if you can point me in the right direction)

@jaredcwhite great job on the first opalist :-)
@adambeynon one other question, maybe there's an issue for it. But the default inspect in irb shows instance variables, would you take a PR for that?
