Night website comparison
Hey guys, i am working with @DynamicSquid to create a new website for his programming language - Night.
we are both like at a standstill with which one is better:
you need a google account for this in order to prevent double surveys from the same person
I need you guys to compare https://night.lethdev2019.repl.co (incomplete and new) and https://night-web.dynamicsquid.repl.co/ (the old webpage) and write which one you think is actually better and provide pros and cons (pros being what you like and cons being what you think must be improved).
i also need you to take into account that https://night.lethdev2019.repl.co is not finished by a long shot.
When you have made your judgement, please fill out the form here so we cannot play with the results.
feedback for https://night.lethdev2019.repl.co
- Make it an interactive terminal so you can try out the language
- Create an ide for night
I have not created a terminal running in the browser before so i need help on learning how.
I need help upon building a server for running night using socket in nodejs and the client, using xterm.js (mostly done). if you want to help, create a comment saying that you want to help.
all is appreciated,
following a recent conversation on github: https://github.com/DynamicSquid/Night/issues/25
I do actually have experience creating a downloader using wget and command line apps.
Can i (Perhaps) help make it in python (since you only need a command line tool for the package manager)?
I think @DynamicSquid 's web page is better. Also, make the
N logo on the top right corner clickable so it can take you to the homepage because why not. Most websites do that!
Seems my comment here got deleted, so here it is again:
I would suggest switching to jquery.terminal. It's simple, easy, and doesn't have the odd side-effect of being able to move your cursor anywhere (like xterm.js). In short, it feels more like a real terminal than xterm.js to me. I've set up a demo repl here to show how easy it is to use: https://repl.it/@fuzzyastrocat/term-example
However, your text has been updated to say "mostly done", so I understand if you don't want to rebuild everything.
I think @DynamicSquid's Night website is cool.
But @Lethdev2019 is also good because it has cool fonts and themes etc.
The one thing that is not working is Terminal. LoL, you already told that. :/
I will say to you(@Lethdev2019) that complete your website fast and make it even better than Squid's one.
