I'm trying jetbrains.com/lp/mono/ Overall I like it, but the ligatures feature is something I'm not used to it.

Also, everytime I read about fonts I have a hard time believing all the advantages they proclaim to have.

I do agree with Nick here.
In *general* I endup using var for struct because it gives me the convenience without the drawbacks. Even when my brain tells me to start with `let` I quickly endup changing it.
But read the thread, the nuances are important ;)

RT @nicklockwood@twitter.com

Interesting post from Brent Simmons here about use of let vs var by default.

I generally disagree, and I think most structs should have var properties by default, but there is some nuance to the decision about which to use: (thread) twitter.com/brentsimmons/statu

Somebody made the mistake of asking me "what's the frontend and backend of a compiler"
ohhh boyzzzz. buckle up!

Remember everyone: toss a coin to your witcher!

"Thoughtless commits are bad commits" YES, TOTALLY AGREE. but those commits shouldn't make it into your master branch.

No wonder you have problems if your repo looks like this. SQUASH AN MERGE!

This doesn't mean that the PR system doesn't have issues. It has. The more PRs you produce and the slower they're reviewed, the more you suffer. No way of arguing against that.

This is basically what the "stacked diff" approach does (but amending commits instead, which a lot of people also fights against).
I think that the "don't rewitte history" dogma hurts a lot. You should rewrite history IF it's your own history and is NOT shared yet.

Ex: people suffering cause they rebase from master on their branch. But why not just merge? "cause the PR is ugly" does it matter? as long as the diff is understandable who cares about the commits. then just "squash and merge" and everything is fine. your repo will very nice.

I'm reading a bunch of stuff lately about alternatives to the PR system, and altought I think some stuff there is really good, I have a felling that people fights a lot the "PR way".

Is the first time I see Brandon Sanderson and I’m amazed. Now I want to read his stuff even more than before! Great talk about Magic Systems youtu.be/jXAcA_y3l6M

There are many Swift frameworks to make nice CLI tools out there, and with property wrappers they are nicer than ever before. I haven't tried github.com/jakeheis/SwiftCLI but the fact that generates zsh completions is really cool! I wish it was a default on many tools!

Yesterday evening I had some time to cleanup a bit my plugin for Publish github.com/alexito4/ReadingTim and to make some PRs to the publish repo that I had on my todo. Kudos to @johnsundell@twitter.com for being so nice! it's a pleasure to contribute to OS when people is nice.

When you buy a game and the following week shows up on your Humble Choice.

What you think about the usage of private global variables to magically add storage to a type? Is this abusing ? I think it gives a super nice API so is totally worth it ^^

@johnsundell@twitter.com Here is the video from yesterday's stream youtu.be/8uELlWDCYqM how to make a plugin for Publish.

Not understanding what swift evo talks about doesn’t imply they’re not focusing and solving real problems.
