whaack: diana_coman: I've fallen a bit out of focus, but I'm still around and will return to working on the block explorer shortly
whaack: jfw: I'd be happy to do this when I have some time
sonofawitch: 2020-07-31 22:17:46 (#ossasepia) jfw: whaack: would you be interested in taking on taming the boost build system, i.e. replacing bjam with a plain makefile that builds only the necessary parts?
diana_coman: whaack: cool then & good to know it.
jfw: whaack: alright, no particular rush. I should add - what I proposed there isn't necessarily the only way the boost situation could be improved, though seems the most straightforward from a distance. Can discuss further when the time comes.
diana_coman: jfw - from even more distance, it sounds to me like an accessible starting/entry point at least, so worth looking at anyway.
jfw: yep. the whole "here are some source files, run a compiler on them then link" doesn't have to be nearly as complicated as it always seems to end up in the wild
diana_coman: heh, one can define civilization whole by that "doesn't have to nearly as complicated as it always seems to end up in the wild"!
diana_coman: but yeah, certainly true for compile+link
jfw: hah, thought you might go for the generalization. also I don't mean it in a sense that "omg here's some suboptimal code, must fix it" but rather "here's an intolerable barrier to making sense of this mess, and relatively tractable beginner project"
diana_coman: exactly so. (And yes, I took that was what you meant, it was quite clearly stated as such, indeed.)
jfw: otherwise: cmake (ptui!) and gdb ports have come to Gales, and mysql 5.6.38 well underway with the dubious honor of being the thing to finally force the first two. I expect to publish these through another tarball release in the same style as the first (as there's no V based option ready to go and JWRD can't have a LAMP stack blocked on that right now).
diana_coman: oh hey, that sounds quite useful actually, esp having mysql as option in there; (and huh, I hadn't realised cmake was mandatory for it, ugh)
