  • Project mention: How to optimise React Apps? | | 2024-04-21

    React has introduced measures like batching state updates, background concurrent rendering and memoization to tackle this. My opinion is that the best way to solve the problem is by improving their reactivity model. The app needs to be able to track the code that should be re-run on updating a given state variable and specifically update the UI corresponding to this update. Tools like solid.js and svelte work in this manner. It also eliminates the need for a virtual DOM and diffing.

  • SurveyJS

  • ohm

    A library and language for building parsers, interpreters, compilers, etc.

  • Project mention: Ohm: A library and language for building parsers, interpreters, compilers, etc. | | 2023-10-31

    Building an interpreter or a compiler from a grammar is an interesting idea. I can't immediately see how to go about it - the grammar would need to match on SSA or similar.

    The examples have a lisp-like interpreter at which definitely uses a grammar for parsing and might use a generic AST representation.

    Will have to think more - a grammar might be a worthwhile way to specify a nanopass style compiler pipeline.

  • walt

  • Project mention: Guile Hoot v0.1.0 Released | | 2023-10-16

    This is so cool!

    > Self-contained toolchain: No emscripten, binaryen, wabt, etc.

    Tangent: I am sincerely surprised by how few languages seem to do this. I know of Walt and... that's it (although I am sure there are more). I'd expect there to be more experimental small languages targeting WASM directly at least.
