Stuchlik: Fair, I can type } *over* a paren that I’ve just added ,I guess it could cause a slip though
Stuchlik: Is atom fully open source? I’ve hears yes and nos on this
January: Not sure why anyone would say it’s not
Stuchlik: Sweet ,hope it does well
Koy: Every piece of it is from chromium to the editor plugins
Stuchlik: There was a thread on the GitHub atoms, I think. page with someone saying that it was going to be mainly open source. Oh actually – It might have been the licence that isn’t permissive
Stuchlik: Like – you can see the code but you can’t roll your own or whatever
Bolinder: Standard permissive open source license
Caflisch: Hmm im still not quite getting there.gonna get some food and stare at it afterwards :p
Stuchlik: Schaetzle: have you written any plugins / extensions / functions for it yet?
Stuchlik: Be interesting to hear what it’s like to write for and stuff I guess, I only used it very briefly, all i did was copy a code block to enable one to set a proper esc sequence for vim keys
Stuchlik: Liquidmetal: I’ve not used it – seems like it’d be weird though
Brimmer: Why’s that? The bracket-free syntax seems kind of nice
Stuchlik: Writing in one language with the syntax of another or whatever, seems like it’d make more sense to just learn JS syntax
Stuchlik: You’ll have *all* the resources etc open to you then
Stuchlik: Liquidmetal: yeah python syntax is neat
Grosser: Baxx, that’s what I was getting at – the python like syntax
Herne: Wait, are there two conversations happening ?
Immen: Liquidmetal, it don’t solve any problem of js, and introduces new the first is that you have already a lot of good tools for js, that don’t support coffeescript
Swaringen: That’s a really bad compromise.
Stuchlik: I’m saying that I like python, I like it’s syntax, but sometimes it makes sense to use something the way it was made to be made imo
Koscinski: Just use ES6 Babel and live with the extra curly braces that JS has.
Moore: Hannibal_Smith, I’ve felt that when using coffeescript – so many tools don’t use it
Dais: Many tools don’t use Babel either.
Brumm: Sure. but since Babel is ES6 which is the future of JS, it should get better soon.
Stuchlik: Whats an alternative to babel? I’m not sure if I use anything like it or not.
Stuchlik: Hmm, i think not – google tells me it’s a compiler
Stuchlik: I’m not sure what that means – it creates a binary out of the JS?
Depaola: Baxx: It creates ES5 code from ES6 code.
Gillooly: Baxx, yeah it’s js – older js
Riska: Yeah the terminology is a bit mixed occasionally = Compiler, transpiler, converter, whatever
Stuchlik: Riiight, OK cool – so people use this to support older browsers or something?
Immordino: Transpiler – haha! that’s a funny name
Ohotnicky: Baxx, no browsers have full es6 support yet
Dehler: Baxx, Babel got right the use of “compiler” when other similar tools prefered the term “transpiler”
Disanti: So it’s used to support browsers, node.js, etc.
Muratore: Liquidmetal: technically, CoffeeScript has broken scoping rules, which makes every variable in your program “global,” and a not-well-defined grammar, with lots of visual ambiguity
Dugar: Es6 is coming – just going to take a while
Stuchlik: Schaetzle: does it act on the code *then* one loads that code into the browser / whereever, or does it happen on the fly?
Kluender: Dekok, oh – I wasn’t aware of that. Will look that up
Pizira: Yeah, ES6 was published in July
