@cwebber @ng0@toot.cat I remember reading about one of the autotools embedding guile in a coming version

I don't remember if it was automake or some other tool

I can't find the toot anymore, of course

@cwebber @ng0@toot.cat

I see

How is it supposed to be used ?

Can it spare me the ugly m4 macros in my config.ac files ?

How ?

The manual has an exampel but it's not very expressive

@catonano @ng0 I've heard that sadly it's not quite as powerful as it should be.

Honestly I'd still like to have a build DSL written in Guile that can either run as scheme or write out portable shell

Follow

@cwebber @ng0@toot.cat

Of course you'd prefer guile. Those m4 macros are a huge techical debt

Integrating java and clojure is way easier !

I made a Guile wrapper around Freexl. I used some m4 macros

But then Guile-git, g-golf and all those use different macros to do the same thing, I don't undertsand and that frustrates me

@catonano @cwebber @ng0@toot.cat No you are not!

Autotools group hug?

@sajith @cwebber @ng0@toot.cat

Now, for example, there' s no way that I can get Haunt to work on my Fedora workstation.

The Guix provided Haunt cant fins some scheme modules

If I check it out and build it it misses some other modules

And of course the macros in Haunt config.am are different than the ones I found in guile-git, guile-crypt, g-golf... 😞

@sajith @cwebber @ng0@toot.cat

Ok I solve dit

I was somewhat an idiot 🙄

@catonano @cwebber @ng0@toot.cat You're not alone in that either! I feel like an idiot all the time. :-)
