Announcing deta

I just released the first version of deta, a Racket library for mapping between database tables and structs. A bit like Elixir’s Ecto.

You can install it from the package server with:

raco pkg install deta

Check it out!

Announcing racket-sentry

I just released the first version of sentry, a Racket library that lets you capture exceptions using the Sentry API.

Announcing marionette

I just released the first version of marionette (named after the protocol it implements), a Racket library that lets you remotely control the Firefox web browser. Think “puppeteer”, but for Firefox.

Announcing north

A database migration tool written in Racket.

Announcing forms

Today marks the first public release of forms, a Racket library for web form validation. Racket’s formlets module from the standard library already does something similar, but, unfortunately, it lacks any facilities for easily showing validation errors to end users which is a big part of what I want from this kind of library. Another nice thing about this new library is it’ll be able to validate things other than forms – like JSON – soon!

Advent of Racket 2018

I decided to do this year’s Advent of Code in Racket and stream the whole thing. We’ll see how far I make it (getting up this early is rough!), but so far I finished day one. The code is here and the playlist for the recordings is here.

If you want to get notified as soon as I jump on to start streaming, you can follow me on Twitch.

Announcing geoip

Announcing net-ip

Announcing component

Announcing cursive_re

I released cursive_re today. It’s a tiny Python library made up of combinators that help you write regular expressions you can read and modify six months down the line.
