Let’s stop copying C / fuzzy notepad

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/07

Ah, C. The best lingua franca we have… because we have no other lingua francas. Linguae franca. Surgeons general? C is fairly old — 44 years, now! — and comes from a time when there were possibly more architectures than programming languages. It works well for what it is, and what it is is a relatively simple layer of indirection atop assembly. Alas, the popularity of C has led to a number of programming languages’ taking significant cues from its design, and parts of its design are… slightly questionable. I’ve gone through some common features that probably should’ve stayed in C and my justification for saying so. The features are listed in rough order from (I hope) least to most controversial. The idea is that C fans will give up when I call it “weakly typed” and not even get to the part where I rag on braces. Wait, crap, I gave it away.

Issues are disabled at tohosokawa/rst-preview-pandoc: reStructuredText preview in Atom using Pandoc

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/08

No more issue reporting: tohosokawa/rst-preview-pandoc: reStructuredText preview in Atom using Pandoc

This is a very useful Atom.io package, but it has one big issue: when you close a preview window then re-opening it, the settings are restored to the default -frst -thtml --webtex ones.

As I’m an Atom.io n00b, I need to dig into this another time.

Notes:

I want the defaults to include --standalone --toc --toc-depth=5 or at least --standalone --toc.

For now I’ve hardcoded them.
