Has taken me three months to do this (obviously not full-time) and all I’ve really done is cobble together other people’s hard work. It’s just so hard to find the time to do stuff, even when some of this I could almost semi-legitimately count as “work”.
Not much to say about it because it’s not wonderful, but:
- I’m really struggling to wrap my head around tree-sitter. I think I need to work through a really basic example so it begins to make sense to me, but… finding time.
- And similarly, the
highlights.scm. I don’t quite get that yet either, but in writing this post I’ve just discovered the Syntax Inspector which should help me a lot (I guess in general I just need more time to read docs).
- Groovy itself I don’t mind just because it’s something different from Go and Python.
- Jenkins I hated (say compared to Tekton) until I learnt about JobDSL and that is pretty cool.
Github and not Fossil because Nova has built-in Git support so it just makes life easier… hmmm… maybe I should build a Fossil extension?!
