I moved the demo project
teamReact from the react repo to the book. But
teamReact was not a good name because
nobody (except the core team) can guess that “team” actually means “noi”.
camelCaps names are not PEP 8 compliant.
also partly because it was always so much to type in a command line (okay that’s not a good reason because we should fix that part of the problem by adding auto-completion to the
noi1r uses the same database as
noi1e but has its own test
suite. So it is listed in
tests/test_demo.py but not in
lino.modlib.chat from noi1r’s
Which causes this plugin to no longer being tested at all. Yes,
lino.modlib.chat is in standby now, we have abandoned our dream of
writing an instant messenger client in Lino. We rather hope that sooner or later
some free IM client will emerge, and that Lino would rather integrate with it
than replace it.
Difference between a comment and a blog entry: In a blog entry I have –ideally– been thinking about how to explain a series of interconnected thoughts. The formulation of each though may vary as long as the whole blog entry isn’t published. A comment should rather be atomic, I publish one thought at a time. In a comment I say something while in a blog entry I write something.
Where should we write documentation about the React front end? In the book, or in the react repository?
