it's sort of fascinating to work in a perfectly fine if basic language which mostly nobody uses for historical reasons -- except for this one project which is building an entire distribution out of it

tbh i may like it because it feels like middle period javascript -- where people were realising "wait, there's some good parts buried in this" but it wasn't widely known


i think my worst instinct here is that i'm hacking on it because it's obscure, like i'm into some band you wouldn't have heard of

but more generously, i like it because it has this green fields feeling, like watching something grow from scratch

eh, no need to overthink it. it's a hobby

@mala Good luck! Are you looking at Racket or one of the many smaller ones?
