    Project mention: Any tips for how to make moddable games? | /r/gamedev | 2023-05-20

    As someone said, make the game data-driven is a good first step but I will say, also have some sort of way to add additional game logic. For C++ games, lua is really easy to embed the interpreter in your C++ binary, read in the files from a directory (like /mods) with the C++ filesystem api new in C++17, and it's very easy to use SoL to write an API for lua specific to your game. Many games use lua in this way and it's probably the most common mod path setup.

    Sorry, I don't know about an Emacs plugin. All the plugins/extensions I'm aware of are listed in the Readme.md: https://github.com/andreasfertig/cppinsights/#c-insights--vi...

    I'm happy to add an entry for Emacs once somebody develops a plugin for that editor.

  • pfr

    std::tuple like methods for user defined types without any macro or boilerplate code

    Project mention: Rooting for P1061 "Structured Bindings can introduce a Pack" | /r/cpp | 2023-10-19

    This single feature opens a world of new possiblities. For example, it makes implementing "getting the number of fields" trivial. Furthrmore, and much more importantly, it enables turning a struct into a tuple. Currently, this can only be done by enumerating cases (therefore it's not fully generic), as with Boost PFR. By the way, PFR greatly simplifies our codebases, especially for parts with serialization and/or reflection.

    Project mention: Print(“lol”) doubled the speed of my Go function | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-23

    Most languages target C or LLVM, and C and LLVM have a fundamentally lossy compilation processes.

    To get around this, you'd need a hodge podge of pre compiler directives, or take a completely different approach.

    I found a cool project that uses a "Tower of IRs" that can restablish source to binary provenance, which, seems to me, to be on the right track:


    I'd definitely like to see the compilation processes be more transparent and easy to work with.
