    Project mention: Hugo via npm? | | 2023-02-20

    When run from a package.json script, Hugo Installer checks for the presence of a Hugo binary — by default, in the project’s bin/ folder, although you can pick a different location — and, only if it doesn’t find the binary, downloads and installs a version, which you must specify. The check goes very quickly and, thus, I suggest you make a package.json script that does only the Hugo Installer part, and use it with your other Hugo-related scripts. Here are some examples, some of which use Müller’s exec-bin package so the installed Hugo binary will run as you would expect:

  • Basenumber.js

  • binary-experiments

    Project mention: Jevko: a minimal general-purpose syntax | | 2022-10-25

    Yes, S-expressions come in many flavors, some more minimal than others, some binary. They are all truly wonderful.

    The most wonderful to me are the simplest ones, and Jevko grows out of the same spirit as them.

    However, it does not attempt to be a new flavor of S-expressions and diverges in ways which to me are worth looking at. I hope it can appeal and be useful not only to minimalist syntax enthusiasts.

    BTW Some time ago I've been also experimenting with binary versions of Jevko, certainly with inspiration from both netstrings and Rivest's csexps:

    Since then I had some more ideas which I hope to get around to implementing at some point.
