Developer's Corner / Advent of Code
« on: December 08, 2019, 05:41 AM »
I realize it is perhaps a bit late to post this, but I thought some of the programmers on here might still get some fun out of it this year. From the about page:

Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for a variety of skill sets and skill levels that can be solved in any programming language you like. People use them as a speed contest, interview prep, company training, university coursework, practice problems, or to challenge each other.

You don't need a computer science background to participate - just a little programming knowledge and some problem solving skills will get you pretty far. Nor do you need a fancy computer; every problem has a solution that completes in at most 15 seconds on ten-year-old hardware.

Personally, I am using it as a way to try out the Rust programming language this year :Thmbsup:.

Thanks for commenting :Thmbsup:.

Surfulater does not have any Export capability, so it isn't possible to Import it into our new app Clibu.

So, does Clibu have export functionality?

I am sorry to hear that app, I think this underlines the importance of having good export/import functionality so your data does not get locked in a proprietary format. I am a little surprised the Surfulater author apparently created a new app (Clibu) with no way to import from Surfulater?

For what it's worth, I moved from Evernote to CintaNotes, which is a lot more bare-bones, but works well for many of the type of notes I keep. Besides that I keep a development log in markdown in plain text files.

Thanks for giving that a try Deozaan, I reported some of it on their IRC channel.

It seems the clone thing is related to what version of mercurial you are using, it failed with an error on mercurial 4.6 here, but worked with mercurial 5.1.

There does not seem to be an issue tracker for that repo (they are at, so I guess IRC or sending the author an email are the only options.

There is much to like about sourcehut, the only thing that keeps me from using it at the moment is that patches are handled through email instead of having a web interface for pull requests.

I converted the remaining 5-6 mercurial repos I had on bitbucket to git yesterday.
