Hello Guilers & Emacsers!
I’m pleased to announce that there will be two Guile-related projects
going on as part of GSoC this year:
• Guile-Emacs, by BT Templeton
BT will continue the excellent work that has been done on Guile and
Emacs integration. Previous GSoCs focused on providing a
full-fledged Emacs Lisp front-end to Guile’s compiler and VM. This
project focuses on the missing piece: replacing the Emacs Lisp
interpreter in Emacs by Guile.
• Emacsy, by Shane Celis
This is another approach to the Emacs/Guile vision: Shane will work
on a framework, Emacsy, that will allow application developers to
easily “emacsify” them–i.e., by providing the mechanisms for a
“key-lookup-execute-command loop” similar to that of Emacs, with
(Shane and BT: feel free to introduce yourself and your project.)
I’m the mentor for these two projects, but I really hope they will
develop with good interaction with the Guile and Emacs folk. In
particular, I would like development issues and road maps to be
discussed primarily on the relevant project mailing lists.
I’m very excited about these two projects. I think they will help
promote a vision where users are in control and can readily exert their
freedom to study and adapt the software to their needs.
Thanks a lot to José and Giuseppe who have wonderfully handled GNU’s
participation in GSoC, and happy hacking!
