***karswell` is now known as karswell
<davexunit>what a nice twitter account
<nalaginrut>morning guilers~
***Guest87471 is now known as Cork
<ArneBab>moin nalaginrut
***koz__ is now known as koz_
<lloda>dummii, I just do x = scm_t_subr(your-function-pointer-type), explicit conversion
<lloda>I'd recommend that over casting
<dsmith-work>Morning Greetings, Guilers
<dsmith-work>sneek: seen lloda ?
<sneek>lloda was here Apr 27 at 09:33 am UTC, saying: I'd recommend that over casting.
<dsmith-work>sneek: botsnack
<dsmith-work>lloda: Sorry to bother you. I just grabbed a random recent nick to see if the bots time was bogus
***michel_mno is now known as michel_mno_afk
<ijp>so, good news on the gsoc front
<taylanub>sneek: seen taylanub
<sneek>taylanub was here Apr 27 at 07:10 pm UTC, saying: sneek: seen taylanub.
<taylanub>dsmith-work: seems one can use one's own nick
<davexunit>ijp: yeah?
<ijp>davexunit: either that, or someone has done a really elaborate hoax email
<davexunit>ijp: so you'll be working on the guile js stuff?
<davexunit>I read your proposal. it was very good.
<ijp>yeah, backend, not ,language ecmascript
<dsmith-work>taylanub: True
<davexunit>ijp: yeah, a javascript backend is more exciting than implementing ecmascript on the guile vm.
<davexunit>ijp: with the JS backend, would it be possible to interoperate with other JS libs?
<davexunit>I'm not sure what the limitations will be
<ijp>I certainly hope so
<davexunit>I'm curious how that would even work
<davexunit>maybe I should rephrase: the interoperability I am thinking of is using JS libs like jQuery in Guilejs programs
<davexunit>rather than using guilejs libraries in JS programs, which would obviously work.
<ijp>davexunit: as long as you have enough stack space, you should just be able to call them normally, modulo some type marshalling
<davexunit>ijp: do you have an idea of what that would look like in guile code? I can't picture it. sorry if this is bothersome, btw.
<ijp>sorry, the other direction
<paroneayea>ijp: CONGRATS on !
<ijp>an ffi-type module shouldn't be too tricky to write, but that obviously is not ideal
<paroneayea>I'm VERY excited about it! :)
<paroneayea>as you can tell by the ALLCAPS!
<davexunit>ijp: oh okay.
<davexunit>I was hoping that I'd be able to write all my client-side code for a web app in Guile.
<davexunit>and have interoperability with JS libs somehow.
<davexunit>perhaps that's something that could be looked into post-GSoC?
<davexunit>I have interest in poking at it
<mark_weaver>ijp: hey, congrats on gsoc! that's great news :)
<mark_weaver>I'm really excited about this project.
<ArneBab>ijp: do I understand it correctly that your project would allow me to run Guile programs in Firefox?
<ArneBab>ijp: (regardless of the answer: congrats to getting the project!)
<ArneBab>(sorry, wrong buffer)
