@onur-baran Same as it ever was.... When it's ready. And hopefully not before.
Sorry, just couldn't resist. 🤡
But dinnae fash yersel... some body more knowledgeable than I will be comin' along this trail. ☮
I'm currently writing a new little framework for plugin-settings in CoffeeScript.
Now my question to the devs:
When the time comes and I'm gonna create a pull-request what preparings do I have to do:
Of cause the points 4, 5 would require some additional work by my side o_O and it's definitely not the thought behind CoffeeScript
I could also add a gruntfile to automatically compile(+minify) all coffee-files found by just running
grunt (would require devs to
npm install [-g] grunt in order to edit those files of cause).
The con of the first point would be that errors cannot be found as easy any more... So maybe 2. would be a better option for that...
When creating a plugin I would both deliver source and a compiled version, so 2. would be what I would do (again, for a plugin, not core).
I don't use coffee script, but I blogged about it on jsnews, so I kinda know of it and have played with it.
@frissdiegurke While I'm all for coffeescript in plugins (and even dabbled in it at times with my really bad and untested PRs to emoji-extended!), I'm going to have to step in and say that we can't allow any coffeescript into the core code.
The main stopping points are that:
You guys should take a look at TypeScript
Don't let @baris hear you -- he's a fan of Typescript
Did I hear
It's a difficult decision (whether or not to jump to coffee), and right now, I'm not even sure it's the right one. It's a bit hypocritical of me to say "Coffeescript is too new", since NodeBB is built on Node.js, which didn't even exist a decade ago...
My two cents here,
The other thing is that it doesn't make sense for 5% of the core to be of one language and the other 95% to be something else. Unless you were to rewrite the whole codebase (then I guess you can fire us too, give us royalties plx :p) but that seems like an undertaking and a half yeah?
Anyways you're taking a lot of flak but I'm really glad to have you onboard, hope our statements don't discourage you from working with our community. There's quite a few people downloading your coffeescript stuff on npm and so that means there's a demand for it. So keep it up!

I agree, as long as the functionality is there and it's not broken, it can be written in
teawith2sugars for all the difference it makes.
@psychobunny you'll not be able to discourage me through such little issues I'll rework the settings-PR the next days therefor it's a mix of 3. and 5. in my original post

I prefer my tea black to be honest
