  • sol2

    Sol3 (sol2 v3.0) - a C++ <-> Lua API wrapper with advanced features and top notch performance - is here, and it's great! Documentation:

    I mean, if you could tell from my original post, I like C++ templates. The point is not to constantly write templates in your calling code, the point is to architect a library with templates that affords flexibility and dynamism so that the calling code is easy to write, read, and reason about. Consider, for example, the sol2[0] example usage code vs the actual source code itself[1].


  • pyshim

    An experiment; can i make an LD_PRELOADable shim with Cython?

    I think python is probably the more pragmatic choice of ultimate programming language - certainly easier to hire python talent than lisp talent.

    I agree with all 4 of those points in that tweet.

    You can do some pretty twisted things from the comfort of python, e.g. years ago i was able to create an LD PRELOADable shim in python:

  • zig

    General-purpose programming language and toolchain for maintaining robust, optimal, and reusable software.
