Jonathan Lamothe reshared this.


So this whole # # experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #.


Reading a #Lua tutorial where they seem to be advocating for serializing data by writing it in Lua format and then just executing the contents of that file to read the data back.

Hiding file extensions is awesome also.
@Isaac Kuo Yeah, I see no way any of these things can go wrong.


Been reading up on #Lua, because I'm intrigued by the idea of writing my own #minetest mods, and I have to say, I'm simultaneously impressed and terrified by this language.

It has a lot of convenient features, but they present fun ways of shooting yourself in the foot.
I came to a similar conclusion about Ruby and it's also probably true of Python.
@glyn It at least seems more sane than JavaScript. I'm generally not a fan of dynamically-typed languages, though.
