11:58 plicease wold love it if libffi would cut a new release after all of these years.
12:03 plicease noticed this yesterday
12:03 plicease https://metacpan.org/pod/Alien::Web
12:03 plicease useful for bundling static files
15:36 sivoais it would be nice to have something that works with bower/npm for that
15:36 sivoais it would have to be able to request a specific version
15:38 sivoais it would be hilarious but awesome to do something like that for any other dynamic language ecosystem... pip + Inline::Python, maven + Inline::Java
17:03 plicease sivoais: agree
17:03 plicease would be great if someone with better know-how on the bower/npm ecosystem than me could write a Alien::Build plugin
17:04 plicease Alien::Web is obviously for much simpler stuff
17:07 plicease awwaiid is a proponent of this approach in the Perl 6 sphere
17:07 plicease I think you can go a bit crazy with languages, but some cross over has utility.
17:16 plicease it surpsising me how often the .pc files distirbuted with packages are borked.
18:44 plicease I have Aliens with Aliens as dependencies working
18:44 plicease https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/issues/95#issuecomment-289108186
18:44 plicease mostly
18:46 plicease now it just needs to be easy.
18:46 plicease (well it is easier than it was at last)
18:47 plicease s/last/least/
