Coding 2022-01-28

By Max Woerner Chase

The stuff I was talking about coding for the sake of the worldbuilding book/site yesterday? It turns out that it's not as easy as I thought, because apparently nothing is allowed to be easy?

Basically, I wanted to improve ALE's support of rstcheck so I can have rstcheck pick up on the config file and have proper checking of files that use custom directives. Per a comment on a previous PR attempting to add similar functionality, all I need to do is conditionally pass the relevant command-line argument when the version of rstcheck is greater than, um...


So, this is a problem.

I think the path of least resistance is to fork rstcheck, cut a local release, and point the checkout of ALE that neovim uses to my fork. I don't want to do that right now, so I'm just going to pause to take stock, and prioritize the various things I can work on.

This is a somewhat intimidating tower of tasks, but just start peeling stuff off the bottom, I guess. For now, I'm going to take things easy. I'll see what I'm up for in the next few days.

Good night.
