351: Riding the Rails
1 April 2019
Mike explores the state of Xamarin.Android development on Linux, and we talk frameworks versus libraries and what Rails got right.
- Feedback from Eric — I like Python as well but since I spend most of my day in .Net Framework/Core I tend to prefer dotnet-script.
- dotnet-script — Run C# scripts from the .NET CLI.
- Feedback from Tom — I haven’t tried Rust yet, but it seems to have a lof of momentum. Maybe there are issues with it, but I’m not going to take advice from someone who “really doesn’t care” that Rust produces safer and more secure code.
- Mike’s fork of stl-thumb — Stl-thumb is a fast lightweight thumbnail generator for STL files.
- Why I miss Rails — In the transition to the modern web stack we’ve unsolved some of what tools like Rails made easy 10 years ago. I don’t think it needs to be that way.
- Luminus — Luminus is a Clojure micro-framework based on a set of lightweight libraries. It aims to provide a robust, scalable, and easy to use platform. With Luminus you can focus on developing your app the way you want without any distractions.
- Phoenix — A productive web framework that does not compromise speed or maintainability. Phoenix leverages the Erlang VM ability to handle millions of connections alongside Elixir’s beautiful syntax and productive tooling for building fault-tolerant systems.
- How to develop Xamarin.Android applications on Linux with Rider – JetBrains Rider Support — Please note that Xamarin.Android on Linux is officially unsupported. However, it is possible to manually install Xamarin.Android and configure Rider so that it can build and run Xamarin.Android apps on Linux.
