Oh, was it? I'm sorry. I don't read that site, so I didn't know that.

I think it's a good idea to keep all of the arc related stuff on one site, if possible. It limits the barriers to entry.

No problem, I'm sure the forum code has:

This would be quite awesome. Then any of us could email patches to pg with git patch-format and he could use git am to integrate them into a test branch and if he liked the effect he could keep it. It would be very easy and slick.

I can't decide if that's a typo or not. Hopefully yes :)

It's obvius he was being ironic to emphasize that care must be taken in language desingn.

It's just a typeo.

With arc0 there was some issue with the server not responding to the first request properly, because of some Date Bug. I don't know if that continued in arc1. What happens on request 3?

-----

1 point by kennytilton 4485 days ago | link

It varies. Req3 can be a second, then Req4 another twenty, or Req4 and Req5 can be a second and then a killer.

And now I have a meta-concern: Arc's poster boy is the web thingy and in going on a day yours (thx!) is the only response on it being effectively unusable. Whassup with that? I was looking forward to doing a kickass integration of Cells and Arc's webbery. :(

I gave up (temporarily) on running Arc's web server under Windows, due to various problems (http://arclanguage.org/item?id=1531). My impression is that Windows support is "immature", based on the (system "some Unix command") scattered through the code.

I feel like if we have a canonical web repos for docstrings people will be able to find and use it. It works with Java's and Ruby's documentation. Most people probably don't care if the documentation is in the src or not. I don't know how to do it better than put it in the src though.

If you've got arc-wiki and the arc server running, try http://localhost:8080/help

HAML's indentation syntax is transferable to s-exps I believe.

-----

5 points by nex3 4486 days ago | link

As the primary developer of Haml, I'm playing with the idea of porting it to Arc at some point (likely not via sexprs, though, because a large portion of Haml's coolness comes from other aspects of its terser syntax).

Then again,

  (div #id .class = content)
isn't so bad...

-----

1 point by almkglor 4486 days ago | link

I think you'll find that s-exprs can be surprisingly terse - remember the lesson of pg's 'if function ^^.
