AlexDaniel Xliff: “The pieces are there to make some really nice games in Raku.” 00:17
did you mean “some really basic games”? :P
rypervenche Rosettacode has 2048, if you want to play that :D >< 00:18
guifa rypervenche: ha, you actually have an even MORE updated Exceptions file than I do lol. I found one or two more that I didn’t take care in the AST 00:19
rypervenche Yeah, I updated it today. Although it's the same as your es.rakumod, minus the ! to . changes that I made. 00:20
AlexDaniel just because something is technically possible with a lot of effort doesn't make the tool suitable for the task
guifa rypervenche: tbh, what I do is just try to compile and keep fixing the errors as I went ha. That literally dictated the first translations I did in Asturian, and those are the ones that have notes already created for them 00:21
moon-child I made a little thing in raku and c/opengl, using c for most of the graphics bits 00:25
that's probably not what you're talking about, though :)
AlexDaniel I've heard a lot of far-fetched things on this channel but Raku for game development probably takes the cake 00:27
moon-child I mean, there are the SDL&cairo bindings, and github.com/timo/gtk_cairo_shooter 00:29
AlexDaniel and you do what with it?
guifa Define game though. I’ve been working on a port of some classic text adventure games, seems to work well lol 00:30
moon-child AlexDaniel: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I also originally made github.com/moon-chilled/libport to call the other way, and see if I could make a game engine scripted by raku
AlexDaniel I like this comment: www.reddit.com/r/rakulang/comments...e/g6d75ld/ 00:33
it's about using words that others don't understand the same way
guifa rypervenche: use Intl::X ‘zh-TW’; sub ($a) { EVAL $a }; foo ‘say 42’; 00:34
EVAL 是很危險的函式!!! (use the MONKEY-SEE-NO-EVAL pragma to override this error but only if you're VERY sure your data contains no injection attacks).
timotimo AlexDaniel: i don't actually have the free time to do it, but godot with gdnative could be use to embed a moarvm + rakudo inside godot 00:36
00:39 xinming left, xinming joined
AlexDaniel timotimo: I mean, come on, everything is technically possible. But we can't be saying things without any honest connection with the reality. No JIT on ARM means mobile games are out, browser games via webassembly are not realistic at this moment. Even using Raku for backend of multiplayer games would be a terrible choice for performance reasons. You're left with open-source native games that don't demand performance. That's an extremely 00:56
small niche, and even there Raku would be a terrible choice because all other goddamn languages exists and work well.
moon-child isn't mvm js backend still a thing? 00:57
AlexDaniel still a thing? Was it a thing? :)
s/exists/exist/ 00:59
timotimo not mvm js 01:00
nqp js

AlexDaniel there are a lot of things that *can* be done in this world but it doesn't mean they should be done. I use Raku for real time camera motion control. Wow, Raku used for a practical real world application, right. And you know what? I regret every single line of it. Having to deal with performance and memory issues (on a system that needs to do video encoding, you know!) and not being able to increase iteration frequencies because of a 01:16
constant fear that raku itself will ruin my work (sometimes intermittently), when I could've used literally any other programming language and would've been so much happier with that particular use case. Don't tell people to write games in Raku, please.

AlexDaniel jmerelo: is it? For example, rakubrew rolls over to newer versions without the need to reinstall packages 07:03
I don't know the specifics of binary releases but shouldn't it also be possible?
moreover, even if it's not possible, you can still use zef to install modules into a specific directory which you can then add to PERL6LIB 07:04
jmerelo AlexDaniel: not too familiar with rakubrew, just started using it. Anyway, frot-lab was asking about binary packages.
AlexDaniel yes, you'll need to just wait for precompilation when you update rakudo, but no need to issue install commands from scratch
but frankly I have never used binary releases so I'm talking out of my ass x) 07:05

tbrowder hi, my new blog site is on line at <zola-blogs.us> as a WIP. i will be fleshing it out during the next couple of days. it is not restricted to Raku but any programmer/dev type is welcome. suggestions always welcome. 12:21
it is hosted on github with markdown source so it should be easy use and update. 12:22
it is supposed to be https but cert gen is still incomplete on github side 12:25

[Coke] I have some repos that I prefaced with "p6-" to avoid confusion with their p5 counterparts. best practice going forward? no prefix? switch to raku? 12:57
e.g.: github.com/coke/p6-unicode-mangler (also regretting the name mangler now. :) 12:58
elcaro [Coke]: I use `raku-`. I previously used `p6`, but not just to avoid p5 confusion, but maybe one day I might want to publish a python library of the same name, who knows
lizmat I guess if you still also have Perl repoes, prefix with raku
