@neauoire to be fair i still find your transition from webtech to assembly, hardware concerns and researching legacy technology absolutely wild; if someone can break free from the shackles of "modern" (i.e. exceedingly wasteful and lazy) software then i have hope more people will eventually follow
@dvicente I can also recommend to check out wikifs. It's great with acme and supports versioning and history. I use it for taking notes about my projects. It uses some markdown-like syntax but has not that many features.
Some deep diving in the man pages and Plan 9 papers in /sys/doc took me to to the troff/nroff macro system. Seems like Bell Labs made extensive use of this format and Plan 9 includes tools to compile it to PostScript, PDF and HTML.
I'll probably start taking notes my Plan 9 notes in it, just to get the hang of it - https://plan9.io/sys/doc/troff.pdf
Plan 9 is written more or less entirely in its own dialect of C
imo it’s a pleasant dialect with a few nice extensions and it’s an environment that makes writing in C feel less cumbersome than say, the Linux ecosystem
Less magic, everything being a file makes interacting with the system that much more intuitive and straightforward :)
@neauoire not necessarily draw(2), but finally displayed via draw(2). Audiovisual experiences in a small program etc, y'know, demoscene stuff etc.
bind -ac /dist/plan9front /
hg update -C
@neauoire btw there's some sam like sprite sheet editor (by aiju, I think) inside #9front called spred. And I wrote a supplementary sprite cat (sprat) for stacking them into a plan9 image spritesheet. So you could write a plan9image to nes converter (if nes uses no palette) or adjust sprat (if nes uses palettes)
