Weekly Roundup 2019-07-02

By Max Woerner Chase

Next week, I'm going to take it easier because we're traveling again. I've been thinking about where I want to take some projects.

Like, it's conceivable that Seed and pip could end up in a state where the negative space of the two of them working together could be filled by some other PEP 517/518 build system than Poetry. It's not that I'm in a hurry to replace Poetry, but I have been noticing ways in which it's not a precise fit for my workflow. And if Seed and pip are eventually going to implement some of the same features anyway... Note that Seed isn't well-placed to compete with most Python packaging solutions, since it's a general-purpose tool for project lifecycle management, built on top of a specific revision control system.

I was also thinking about MonFree, and the role that grind should play in game design.
