Go to his new website IroncladDev , go to Q & A and scroll down
Never thought I’d say this but Ironclad is very cool. Anyone who shuns Python is aight with me.
… me: a 7 year python dev
Never mind that my highest ran project is in python
so then what the frick is your preferred lang??? XD
My preferred lang is more complicated and horrific than you can comprehend…
Why would you want an experimental, beta, nonofficial, and hobby maintained project as your fav lang???
Because of the pure chaos which it brings. That and horrible documentation. In a nod to @CSharpIsGud, I’m a programming masochist.
… ok then but python is still good XD
W library frfr. JS is half decent with it.
I literally woke up at 12 PM today and wrote a C++ program while cussing out Python under my breath. Now I’m the leader of my friend group, spent 4 hours at the gym with no restoration period and am an official alpha male. L Python, W Kaboom. W² C++
The only reason JS exists is to provide a file extension for Kaboom.
kaboom isn’t really in beta, and it’s fun
BTW am I the only py dev you respect? XD
Kaboom W (this edit will make qwerty look weird)
It’s a library created by Replit, not a language.
Statistically speaking, I am wrong 99.9999919% of the time
If you’re wrong 99.9999919% of the time, I’m wrong 101% XD
I quickly test and debug stuff in Python, then transfer the performance-expensive code to Rust extensions—Python would be unbearably slow for many large projects without its extensibility, with many libraries written smoothly in C, C++, Rust etc. It’s a glue for lower-level language code.
I tried moving a discord bot to Rust entirely, but I gave up because of its compile times and how much storage the
target folder grabbed—“Python → Python+Rust” was a better workflow.
Python is cool for its quick powerful one-liners where you don’t even need indents, what Ironclad hates. Recently that’s been the only thing I use it for.
I remember back when replit community was still barely average before they replaced talk with the quality project smashing format they have now. Back then posted worse junk than what usually gets to the top these days, mainly just ai or games that can be churned out in a day or two.
What got more upvotes in the end was a python interpreter.
