Recurse Center lab notes 2015-07-08
Yesterday’s tinkering with Bazel and Kythe seeped into today. I attempted to run Kythe’s indexers on its own code base. This was a multi-stage process that took something like 15 hours of CPU time and generated 90+ GB of intermediate data. The end result was disappointing: I get a 500 error in the provided web service.
It was definitely fun to use Blaze / Bazel again though! While Kythe didn’t work out, I’m vaguely tempted to use Bazel on some personal stuff, but it needs more build rules before that becomes non-painful. I need to take a slightly closer look at what is available already. It looked like someone was adding build rules for Rust…
The rest of the day was taken up by being non-productive, followed by doing some more ES6, followed by napping for too long. We’ll try again tomorrow!
