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!
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.
Racket support for MaxMind’s geolocation databases.
Racket support for working with IP addresses and networks.
Dependency injection for Racket.
I’ve been playing around with Racket
every chance I got since early
September of this year. This post is going to serve as a sort of
experience report of my foray into Racket so far.
