There is something about LISPs that just makes me happy. And its getting better with plugins such as parinfer. Perhaps there's a certain element of joy due to the simplicity and expressiveness it offers.

I'm reading Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Historical fiction has become go-to genre for bed time reads.

May I know why you picked Rust over Haskell for this project? Coz the pain-points you've experienced with dynamic Racket, could have also been solved with Haskell. I actually want to try writing this in Haskell since I'm already implementing a Scheme interpreter in the same.

Advantage with a branch is that, readers can go through the merged PRs which include all the code changes made at each step. As you said, commits are descriptive, so that helps :)

Teeny-tiny request: Could you make a branch for each step of inc project. It would be helpful for others who are watching the repo. Ofc, this is completely a personal wish :)

This is nice. For somebody like me who's a fresher and less sure of everything, this was helpful. Thanks for writing😊

I actually like higher order functions. I am interested in getting to know your viewpoint and understand your reasoning behind it.

I have already looked into the project, and it's great you are rewriting in Rust. I'd be delighted to pair up with you. Although I am not very familiar with Rust but I'll be able to follow. Will sit down today to read the white paper and go through existing racket codebase.

Yeah I would love to do something of a similar sort. An idea that's stuck in my head from past few days has been doing code walkthroughs after a coding session. Doing this will help me rectify knowledge gaps and clarify the question "Do I really understand?" this thing

for compiler and Rust stuff for building useful things for daily use for tinkering with system-related projects and haskell

Haskell world: explain a thing without using the M-word This is how it goes: M***ds are one way of dealing with IO in pure language😂

I agree. The in-line result in LT is magical. I must confess that when I started with Clojure, I had great difficulty in setting up dev environment. I wasn't familiar with Emacs too. LT came to rescue.

My PR to JSON parsing library Aeson got merged. This is a decent start as a Haskell beginner. ()
