Exactly. The old one was so much sharper / more interesting. I don't hate the new one, I just hate that people changed to it.

In case you didn't know, Rich is probably my favorite person on here, and one of the top 5 in real life. I'm really really rooting for Svelte here. I'm waiting impatiently for the aha moment I've been missing.

I've tried my best to say clearly that "I'm learning this stuff as I go, please show me (and everyone seeing this) if I'm missing something / doing something wrong.

lol - I have so much imposter syndrome I try to be *extra* nice, to compensate. Riot has intensified this! (in real life, that is - you'd be shocked how little my Twitter shit-posting reflects real life 😂)

But I *don't* know the tradeoffs. Rich keeps telling me it's as simple as React, and I keep trying to see that. If it's not as simple, and state management is indeed more complex / less spreadsheet-like, then that's a huge tradeoff that hasn't really been acknowledged.

Agree! Energy I've used already was in trying to figure out *how best to use* Svelte. Once I can grok that, I can explore how best to use its state management to do cool shit I still seem to be missing some things, tho, which is unsurprising given how little I've tried it so far

This is a key point that’s under-appreciated: the ability to manage complex, derived state is *the* most important feature for any JS framework.

This view sparks joy. I’ll keep it.

It’s probably easier training on it if you’re not used to anything else.

I’ve tried Clojure about three times out interest before just giving up.

I do! It’s a pity I read your book so long ago - that metaphor was vivid and on point. Would have helped me explain the point of those gists better

Exactly. I have a sneaking suspicion / sinking feeling that AOT compilation, ie Svelte, would either limit, or make extremely difficult the kind of "spreadsheet" state propagation you talk about. Hope to be proven wrong, though.

You've articulated well what I've been struggling to: managing complex, derived state in a spreadsheet-like manner. I've tried, and failed, to achieve that a few times now; overall the time I've spent is minimal, so I'm hoping I'm just missing something

Afraid I don’t know enough to give you specifics, ie which kinds of games need C++ and why. can do better if he has a moment.
