JavaScript is just a hobbled language - no match for the elegance of Ruby IMO

@mistergibson yes, I never think those thoughts about Ruby

its not javascripts fault. Really. The problem is that JS had to freeze much faster than ruby so had no chance to evolve. In a perfect world instead of JS we would have gone directly to a WASM like VM, with a JS on top letting alternative languages flow from day 1.

true enough
maybe it will evolve into a WASM world at some point
I'd dig that - then we could do any language on top of that.

hi guys
so back to my opal-d3 library, I use opal-rspec for testing it, but that doesn't support opal 0.11
what are my other testing options?

@taw I'm sure you will get some help about that in this Chat room, but I will ask also in the ruby-hyperloop chat room.
