bought the book Crafting Interpreters the book you can read it free online, but I bought the book anyways so I can write note on pages.

talking about talking notes, I highly recommend Pentel Orenz Nero 0.3mm pencil it is thin enough to write lots in a tiny area and very smooth I have many pencils but this is the best.

the language made in the book is called lox and implemented in java I don't have issue with java but I don't want to just follow the example so I wrote it in clojure, just use atom for states

emacs to highlight trailing spaces

(setq whitespace-style '(trailing tabs big-indent))

I also have to add this:

 '(show-trailing-whitespace t))

found some good vim config at Torbet/Vim-It-Up

set scrolloff=10

nnoremap Y y$

nnoremap <leader><leader> <C-^>

nnoremap <Left> :bp<CR>
nnoremap <Right> :bn<CR>

did a tiny project using this way: React without webpack: fast path to a working app from scratch

I like how simple and fast it is, all you need is esbuild

a minimal custom event module, copy from Talk to your React components with custom events

export const on = (eventType, listener) => {
  document.addEventListener(eventType, listener)

export const off = (eventType, listener) => {
  document.removeEventListener(eventType, listener)

export const once = (eventType, listener) => {
  const handleEventOnce = event => {
    off(eventType, handleEventOnce)
  on(eventType, handleEventOnce)

export const trigger = (eventType, data) => {
  const event = new CustomEvent(eventType, { detail: data })

for react remember wrap the handler with useCallback

read Mastering TypeScript - Fourth Edition

there's some good stuffs in typescript, I particularly like the never type.

after tried react without webpack using esbuild, I also tried it with deno

deno already has a built-in bundler just create this import maps

  "imports": {
    "react": "https://esm.sh/react@17",
    "react-dom": "https://esm.sh/react-dom@17"

then run deno bundle --import-map importmap.json app.jsx bundle.js

that is client side, for server side and ssr, can check this article: Guide to server-side rendering with Deno and React Deno.emit looks interesting

some new Manning books show up on safari, I picked a few to my reading list:

just needs to revisit colabs recently, found it's now much easier to access drive content now (if it don't auto-mount, call this)

from google.colab import drive

I can keep secrets (api keys etc..) in my google drive and hide it from the notebook:

secrets = "/content/drive/MyDrive/secrets/config.json"

with open(secrets, 'r') as f:
  config = json.load(f)

for importing modules from google drive, I tried this but it doesn't work ...
