11:10 rns idiosyncrat: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2016-06-29#i_12757701 -- a good read, easy on eye and pretty much self-documenting as the structure of the tangled source code is made clear in the end (section main).
11:13 rns And looks easily expandable to other languages with ```C ... ``` or as in Github-flavored markdown https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown/ (Syntax highlighting section).
11:20 rns Altogether looks like a usable tool to keep code, doc and test together -- tests data and code can be specified per section and modularity/reuse can be added, e.g. by adding a from clause to insert statement, as in -- insert section <name> from <filespec>

12:30 Cheery Hi you all.
12:30 Cheery yesterday I've prepared lever to it's standalone compiler.
12:30 Cheery I changed the grammar format for what it understands.
12:31 Cheery https://github.com/cheery/lever/blob/master/lever-0.8.0.grammar
12:31 Cheery it used to look like this: https://github.com/cheery/lever/blob/master/lever.grammar
12:48 Cheery My strategy with lever is to make it into a VR-development platform
12:48 Cheery with its own development tools that can run in VR-mode
12:50 Cheery I intend to do that with lot of UI that relies on chart parsing.
14:11 Cheery to do that I have to make lever standalone. It can't expect python being installed somewhere it can reach it. To do that I had to implement chartparser in lever and have it compiled to bytecode.
14:12 rns left #marpa
14:12 Cheery when lever starts up, it loads the bytecode of its own parser&compiler suite and uses it to compile the rest.
14:14 Cheery they are normally stored in module scope though, so the whole stuff is available for the user apps.
