I didn’t read the whole thing. I used ChatGPT to summarize it haha.

The article discusses the author’s decision to stop using Rust for game development after three years, highlighting several challenges faced with the language in this context. Rust’s strict borrow checker and the requirement for frequent refactoring are noted as barriers to rapid prototyping and iteration, which are crucial in game development. The author also critiques the Rust game development ecosystem for being too tech-centric, which often sidelines the “game” aspect of development. They advocate for a development approach that prioritizes quick testing and iteration over strict code quality, which they find Rust does not support well.

Great! When I have more time I’ll give it a read… just might be a few days.

That’s probably a better use of my time to grasp the article and what people think of it. Thanks a lot! I’ll check that out.

It will work with Voyager. I also use that app and will make sure. All apps that work with Lemmy should work with Sublinks.

Open source e reader (lemmy.ml)

I recently got a Sony prs 600 e reader from 2009. The battery is at the end of its life (It lasts about 3 days with heavy reading, and a couple weeks without reading). No backlight, no Wi-Fi, just an SD card that I can load epub files and small PDFs. The screen is slow and the contrast isn’t the best. The “touch screen” is...

Lemmy.World isn’t developing it. Some of their team members are contributing but they didn’t start it. I did. I’m the admin of discuss.online

Regarding sublinks and feeling concerned about what is going on with it (lemmy.world)

Right now, I’m feeling concerned and wondering what is going on in regards to Sublinks here, since I have created a community for discussion on koalas about a week ago on here and have started and been doing work on it recently. But now I’m hearing about Sublinks and feeling concerned if I created it on the wrong instance or...

Java isn’t my preferred language. I did learn Rust to try to contribute but found the code base in less than ideal state and the process of contributing to risky. They don’t always accept all PRs. I also have low faith in the success of Lemmy due to it’s poor QA process and it’s major lack of features.

I believe Java is the best option for this type of application, I almost did it in PHP. My goal was to attract as many people as possible to want to contribute. It’s worked, I have a ton of people contributing in some way, Sublinks roadmap is clear and organized, and we have a super-motivated and driven team.

We won’t fail.

I tried that the but API lacked a lot of features that they were too busy to add, like proper pagination to find the latest changes, etc. I started a project like that first called socialcare.cloud but have since shut it down in favor of Sublinks.

That’s not true, I wrote a blog post about it: jasongr.im/blog/why-i-started-sublinks/

Easier but not what I thought was needed. We need more choice!

Great summary!

It’s a reputable web development language and Spring Framework is very robust. I knew it would make development very quick and easy. Also, everyone learns Java just a little so I feel like it’s easy for the average person to contribute. Rust is certainly fun but Java is tried and true. The organization of the Lemmy project’s code vs Sublinks is night and day. It’s so easy to extend and grow Sublinks.

I was hoping not to have to host it myself. I won’t need it often. I was mostly curious about a Saas. Thanks though!

I setup github.com/deck9/input on polls.sublinks.org. We’ll use this next time.

It’s actually extremely buggy. Not sure if we’ll fix it or find something else. Perhaps something you suggested.
