Folks I don't know how many of you know Greg @G_Dog1985 he has been a essential part of LR since the beginning and is still the person who does all the maintenance to the server to keep us updated and secure.
He has unfortunately fell on some difficult times. He has had cancer for sometime and his grandpa is also ill and cannot work leaving it all on the shoulders of his mother to support the house. If you have any pocket change to share here is a good cause
git-o-matic, a tool to monitor git repositories and automatically pull & push changes:
This is great to keep your notes folder or temporary workspaces synced (if I may say so myself).
My #markup language syntax is becoming quite advanced. Let's see if the core part of it remains easy to use once finished.
Only really working on the app during weekends, so the first public release is still some months away.
While my super advanced yet supposedly simple to use #notetaking app project doesn't produce any real output yet, I can actually already use it for it's core notetaking purpose, since the syntax is an extension of #markdown (not a superset though, as indented code interferes with the design)
The typical use case seems to produce #hashtags on steroids
but the plain text files are still surprsingly readable, so basing it on markdown was definitely a good design choice
The solution isn't that complex though, just needs some more #python overhead instead of directly matching with a large regex, though the debugging was frustrating, since the regex without backreference matched correctly
One little non-obvious detail about regular expression backreferences invalidates my whole #regex design so far 😩
starting to feel the downsides of having a physics instead of computer science degree
Funny how docstrings in #python are counted as single lines of code (by github at least).
It makes sense regarding that they are actually used by the interpreter, but intuitively they just feel like comments
wrote a #readme file for the first time ever and it took the better part of a day 😅
but I guess you can expect more regular development updates from me now
what I learned writing my #parser
