  • Ask HN: What do you think about literate programming for handover/legacy code?
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 6 Dec 2022
    What are your experiences with literate programming for handover of code?

    I am thinking of tools like noweb (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noweb), LEO (http://leoeditor.com/) org-mode (http://cachestocaches.com/2018/6/org-literate-programming/), scribble/lp2 (https://docs.racket-lang.org/scribble/lp.html#%28part._scribble_lp2_.Language%29),

    My experience so far is that it can be a fantastic tool for documenting and handing over complex algorithms to successor developers. I use extensively use ersonal wikis (sometimes MoinMoin, sometimes Zim Wiki, in the last time often a combination of github with reStructuredText) for work. That might also be sufficient when handing over boring code.

  • How to hoist the current method/function?
    3 projects | /r/vim | 13 Aug 2022
    I know what folding is, that's just not what I want. I want to completely hide everything that is not related to the current function. For a while, I used http://leoeditor.com/ where I could have every function/method as a node in a tree, with the node body containing just that. Looking for a way to achieve the same in vim if possible.
  • Organice: An implementation of Org mode without the dependency of Emacs
    9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 26 May 2022
    The lack of good node/graph based APIs for Org Mode is my beef as well. When you compare it with the APIs of the Leo Editor[1], Org pales in comparison. Manipulation that is trivial in the Leo Editor can be quite a pain in Org mode.

  • Obsidian Dataview: Turn Obsidian Vault into a database which you can query from

    > What outliners do you know which allow end-users to feed their data into formulas for processing it without using general-purpose programming languages?

    Bit of a pointless constraint, the talk is about outliners, not no-code-datamangment. Which tool today does this even offer on a useful level?

    But you can look at leo editor (https://leoeditor.com), which is active for 20+ years, fully scriptable and extendable. Though, it's a hot piece of garbage for laymen. It's offers a bunch of features and plugins even for non-coders, but I'm not sure it would satisfy you for this area, if you can't code.

    But I'm not sure if there ever is a tool which will satisfy everyone with just a no-code-approach.

    Hmm maybe you mean:

    - Programming based on fragments, not documents (e.g. LEO https://leoeditor.com/)

    - Live programming (e.g. smalltalk environments)

    - ... where certain actions are not available, e.g. a PL geared towards speech recognition may not support "hover"

  • Is it bad practice to start with Jupyter Notebooks?

    There's also https://leoeditor.com/ where you can have a tree of nodes and execute any of them.
  • The project with a single 11,000-line code file
    15 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Apr 2022
    I had this problem until I found an editor that had outlining as it's core design paradigm. Now, with the outline always visible, it's _really_ easy to navigate any length file.

    Unfortunately, at one point I got so used to navigating with the outline that I ended up making a 1500 line function in C (I was an even worse C programmer then than I am now). Because of the outline, I could read and follow it easily, but anyone with a different editor was royally screwed :-(

    If you're interested, the editor is LEO (http://leoeditor.com/) it's been mentioned on HN a few times
