@ng0 really I just want to kill automake because ugh
@cwebber @email@example.com 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
How is it supposed to be used ?
Can it spare me the ugly m4 macros in my config.ac files ?
The manual has an exampel but it's not very expressive
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
sorry for the rant 🙁
at least I'm not alone in this
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... 😞
