"modern" audio programming 

@paul maybe it's just survival bias on my part, that those things *weren't* the stumbling blocks for me

"modern" audio programming 

@paul it really seems like a tactic for getting more people into audio programming

which i get, and maybe it makes me a curmudgeon, but the programming language isn't the hard part of the shit

everybody on some "oh i want to do it in javascript", like... that's not the hard part. that's not the stumbling block

"modern" audio programming 

@paul honestly i'm still not sold on the concept

"modern" audio programming 

@paul i mostly see talk about it on theaudioprogrammer's discord

"modern" audio programming 

@paul it's "alive" and "well"

@socksy nobody who i've added to any repo recently has received emails about it. i think github's fucking up.

check your GH notifications

@socksy added a KEYS file so now it makes more sense lol

@socksy oh yeah and one of the windswept keybinds that's not in tasklist is tapping / to zoom in to the selected task, shift-/ to zoom out one level, ctrl-/ to zoom out to root, and \ to switch between list and kanban view of the current (focused/zoomed) root

@socksy still, probably good to have for accounting/bookkeeping purposes.

@socksy i realised that i don't even have "date created" or "date updated" in the data model right now lol

@socksy i'll add you to this repo. the keybindings are undocumented so just read the `bindings` dict in TaskList.svelte sorry

@socksy yeah workflowy is similar but i have some ideas further down the pike that diverge

it seems like "pretend that everything else isn't there" wouldn't be a super cool feature but the psychological impact of just... ignoring the larger context and focusing on a tiny part of the work is hard to overstate

also i put a kanban mode in there too, because why not

also it has almost no UI and vi keybindings

i get frustrated because when i'm sketching/planning out a project, i draw up these sprawling, fanciful plans covering as much ground in as deep detail as i can

but when it comes time to actually do the work, it's overwhelming and hard to know where to start

so what i've built is a hierarchical task manager that lets me arbitrarily zoom in to any part of the tree and block out the whole rest of the context

so, after spending large portions of my life going through every single task/todo management app i could find and managing maybe 3-6 months per tool, last week i finally got fed up with it all and started writing my own.

svelte/js on the frontend, rust on the backend. i will probably AGPL it.

why the fuck isnt the computer doing what i tell it to do *it turns out the computer is doing exactly what i tell it to do* well i'll be danged
