Have you tried enso, darklang, wasp-lang, glamorous toolkit, mu, imp, simoji.pub, operon, cuttle, flowrunner, gadget, meemoo, MockMechanics, adacraft, WhiteBox, MAudio, TypeCell, Ratio, natto.dev, Hazel, Lambdu?
Why not? 😉
Maybe you didn't know you could? where to start? what to do? what kind of feedback to give? in which format? where to submit it?
Here's an idea: Review Jam! A Week of Constructive Feedback and Conversations
An opportunity to share and get real usage feedback on your project
An opportunity to experience, review and get inspired by other projects
- A deadline
- Projects propose a tool and a set of tasks
- Reviewers pick projects
Reviewers submit recordings of themselves trying to solve one or more tasks talking through the process
- A transcription / post can be submitted if preferred
The newsletter will only be used for Review Jam announcements
- Tell what's your thinking process
- Explain when / where you get stuck, confused or frustrated
- Explain when something surprises you
- Explain if a thing reminds you of something else (for better or worse)
- Keep it positive and constructive
- Say things you wouldn't say face to face
- Tell how it should be fixed
- Propose features or changes
- Tell them to Rewrite it in Rust
Highlight superfluous details that don't affect the task at hand
- Unless requested by the project
- Go to the project's page
- Create a Celcius to Fahrenheit converter
Tentative Date: Last Week of November
- Task Description: Create a BMI calculator using a FormTask node, an ExpressionTask and DebugTask nodes (BMI formula : weight/height*height)
- Note: The project is still in a very experimental stage, a lot of of basic UI elements and interactions needed for visual flow editing are not there yet. But I do wonder how you like the editing of node properties directly on the canvas in comparison with editing node properties via a property editor in a sidebar.
- A simple domain specific language for developing full-stack web apps with less code.
- Task Description
- Mu shrinks all the software in a computer until it can (in principle) fit in a single head. Sensible error messages with as little code as possible, starting all the way from your (x86) processor's instruction set. Everything easy to change to your needs (habitable), everything easy to check up on (auditable).
- By the time you solve the tasks below, I hope you'll be able to program your processor to run some small graphical programs. The programs will only use a small subset of your computer's capabilities; there's still a lot I don't know and therefore cannot teach. However, the programs will run on a real processor without needing any other intermediary software.

A way for projects to share solution outlines that can be expanded when needed to get more details to get unstuck
Reviewers try with the high level description and only get more details when needed
