Hi, I’m lthms.

I didn’t like syntax highlighting, but I like types and functional programming languages. He/him.

Monthly Retrospective: October and November 2022

It is November 19 today, and I’m one month and 4 days late for the October Retrospective! Truth is, $WORK has been intense lately, to a point where I have not made much progress on my side projects. Anyway.

I have implemented the last feature I was really missing in my daily use of Spatial Sway: moving windows to adjacent workspaces. As a result, I think I can say that Spatial Sway has really reached the “Minimum Viable Product” stage, with a convenient UX, and a nice enough UI. It is still lacking when it comes to configurability, though. It is the next item of my TODO list, but I have no idea when I will implement the support for a configuration file.

Another highlight of the past two months was the NaNoWriMo. I took the last week of October and the first week of November off to plan and start writing a fiction project for it. Writing again was really nice, and I even gave writing fiction in English a shot. That made me uncover a bug in the English support of ogam, my markup language for fiction writers, which led me to publish a fix on Crates.io. However, as soon as I came back to $WORK, my writing spree ended. That’s Okay, though. It gave me plenty of ideas for future sessions. Thanks, NaNoWriMo! Sorry to quit so soon, and see you next year, maybe.

Finally, a nice surprise of the past month is that someone has started working on adding proper support for coqffi to dune, the build system for OCaml and Coq! I’m thrilled by this. Thanks, @Alizter!

This wraps-up this retrospective. I hope I will have more interesting, concrete news to share next month.
