As an ArgoUML contributor I'm going to blog my activities here, so that they may draw interest by other developers or help other developers when doing tasks similar to what I've done. AND(!) the grand vision that makes an Argonaut what he is, TO THRIVE IN THE BIG DANGEROUS WORLD, TAKING THE Argo TO A GOOD SHORE ;-))

Papyrus critics idea: what to port from ArgoUML into Papyrus

Although I've been involved with the development of ArgoUML, currently there is another UML editing open source tool which is getting enough track to gain my attention. This is Papyrus. It is RCP and EMF based from its conception, i think.

So, it should be less complex to proceed from it than to proceed from ArgoUML, which must progress in the painful way from an architecture oriented towards Java Swing and NetBeans MDR (the project was abandoned by NetBeans). As a user of ArgoUML, which would be the most interesting features to bring from ArgoUML into Papyrus?...

So, my basic idea is to try to introduce into Papyrus some of the features that ArgoUML has which could add value to Papyrus as a UML editing and visualization tool. At least i could start from there. This blog would continue to be called Argonaut's life, obviously :-)

But you must always start by using the tool and fix a simple bug before delving into some process like this. Guess what - i never used it!?!

Listening now kaya project, elixir.

Common Lisp libraries: Quicklisp

Quicklisp is the base solution for solving the lisp libraries problem, which therefore is now solved :-)

Thanks to Zach Beane for writing and maintaining it and to Peter Seibel for his continued effort in advocating Common Lisp as a industrial strength language. I know it is because I work at SISCOG which uses Common Lisp extensively.

hb2posts (previously htmled) port to Clojure

(meta '(idea htmled port clojure github open source learning argonauts-life blog))

[2011-05-06 Fri 22:46]
The initial org-meta-mode was bogus. I must learn Clojure instead of messing around with elisp and Common Lisp. The idea I'm having now is to publish htmled in GitHub tonight! Will I be capable of at least one such small hacking and big learning thing?

Here it is: Licensed under the EPL because I want to port it to Clojure.

I had to change the name from htmled to hb2posts because htmled was already taken.
