Do all dependency management systems trend toward lock files?
Working on an update for Effective Django, I spent a little time looking at Pollen and Racket this week trying to understand how it’s different/better than Sphinx. I have a problem (obsession) with “programmable documentation” tools. Came to the conclusion that it solves a problem similar to Sphinx: Python extensions are Racket functions,
.. is spelled
doctree is X-expressions, etc. Also, MB’s templates are gorgeous.
If I had something in the works that I felt I could label an “essay”, I think I’d feel pressure. And that’s at least part of the reason for a three year hiatus on the blog.
