Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Error when installing .deb
2 projects | reddit.com/r/pop_os | 25 Feb 2023
Ok, there is a missing dependency, libffi6, which cannot be installed, because it isn't at repos. You can either install it via downloading from other repos (there is a chance in the debian repo), or via compiling on your own (you can start with paying a visit to official site: https://sourceware.org/libffi/). Either way, move carefully and never forget when a dependency is missing, it may be a start of a "missing dependencies hell". And please, be caution, because you can break your system quite easily.
Your favorite binding?

I've been working in implementing libffi into Euphoria so we can call Raylib functions directly. Previously, Euphoria did not support passing structures by value and only occasionally could we get away with "faking" it by passing int type values directly (but not float types). Raylib is the first library I've run into that makes heavy use of passing structures by value, so it's been an interesting challenge. My original proof of concept worked well with libffi built as a shared library, so now I'm working on building libffi directly into the backend of Euphoria. Then we'll be off and running with full support for Raylib!
kivy-ios / initial build with toolchain keeps getting stuck here (checking for suffix of executables...) after updating macOS and xcode... any thoughts? Thanks!

The last line of output is from configure and appears to be during building of libffi recipe - apparently executing the generate-darwin-source-and-headers.py from libffi repository

If you have read my earlier posts you know I love multilingual programming. One important part of multilingual programming is how to interface one language with other. Typically this is called FFI or foreign function interface. At the lowest level often there are libraries (aka bindings) to talk across languages or across implementations of same language e.g. libffi. In my undergrad we did a group project where we created language bindings to separate algorithmic part written in python and opencv and X11 logic in c.

What parsing techniques do you use to support a good language server?

It must be a fairly large echo chamber since it has room for Clang, GCC, V8, OpenJDK, Roslyn, etc. (The Zend parser for PHP seems to use some flavor of YACC, but given PHP, I don't know if that strengthens or weakens my point.)

What you're describing is not really possible with JS. Your best bet would be to look at the "V8 engine" source code. It is the interpreter used in Node.js and Chrome (and I think Edge would be using it too as Edge is built on Chromium). But there is nothing forcing Node.js to use V8, there are other JS interpreters. https://github.com/v8/v82 projects | reddit.com/r/learnprogramming | 18 Oct 2021
