Guys, can you please comment my rant.
I’ve several points that burn me inside and I still can’t find good enough approaches to resolve them.
I call one of these points - “You live in a house, not in a city” - you can name it “bad scope all the time”.
Every time I try to solve something I feel the world (tools) is trying to ruin my solution.
For instance, I’ve never developed a whole lib at once. At any moment my attention is focused on a very particular task/function. And I switch between tasks all the time. Go up and down on ladder of abstraction.
I mean I can’t have 20KLOC in my head, but filesystem and cheap/easy scrolling made all these endless lists of defs/implementations (aka source files).
My dream workflow will have a tool than will show me at any moment just a little chunk of “a project” and dim/hide everything else.
Lighttable was a revelation, withEve was a new hope.
Guys, how do force your tools to support neocortex based development?
