Jason Scott just dumped the ZIL source code for every infocom game on github. Clone it before Activision's lawyers wake up. And now we see how long it takes for the internet to produce a compiler for a language that's been dead for 30+ years from a cache of production grade source code for said language. We've had compiled z-machine files, but never the original ZIL. github.com/historicalsource

@Xarph rather than parsing the JSON with grep/sed/awk I used jq:

mastodon.social/@gnomon/101934

for repo in $(curl -sL --get -d per_page=200 api.github.com/users/historica | jq -r '.[].clone_url') ; do git clone --mirror "$repo" ; done
