.. and I just learned about anaphora.el[1] (adding that to my "to-understand and start using" elisp library list).

TIL about Anaphoric macros and what "it" means in the `--map` and other functions in Emacs-Lisp dash.el[1] library, and the `mapIt` function in .

For more, see Ch.14. Anaphoric Macros from On Lisp book by Paul Graham (free PDF/HTML[2]).

Watched the PG-13 movie "Alpha" with my 4-yr old son. He enjoyed the movie with legit questions like "Is he alone now?", "Where is his papa?", "Are those the bad guys? (People hunting the bisons)".

I think that showing him Planet Earth, etc. helped him deal with about a minute of bison hunting "PG-13 violence" in the movie.

Thanks! I think "Static Site Generators" should be a nice broad enough category.

@codesections might also join that.

rel-me decentralised verification now works for mastodon - yay! Shame Google Plus broke it, and twitter needs a hack.

@aminb @kensanata

.. and Linux and Technology too?

I am interested in Hugo and Static site generation too. What's a good category for that?

There may not be a whole lot of areas where JavaScript edges out Python, but this is one. Behold:

Array(16).join('Theme song' - 1) + ' Batman!'
// -> "NaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaNNaN Batman!"

@trevdev I went through a progression of:
- ack looks awesome, forget grep.
- Ooh! Forget ack, ag is the best.
- Nah! ripgrep (rg) is THE best. Forget ag, ack, grep ;-)

@zge @rms I would think that he would have baked "his config" into core emacs by now :)
