Playing with the master branch

For daily use, I use Nyxt 2.2.4, but from time to time I check out the master branch to see what’s hot. Today, I noticed I can’t really use master with my Nyxt configuration. I get error messages during processing init.lisp, and even if I completely remove it, there are lots of errors, probably due to my history, bookmark, and other auto-generated files.

Is there some way to be able to use both in parallel? Managing history/configuration by version, for example?

Oh yes, we removed define-configuration carelessly :sweat_smile:

We’ll get it back soon, though, so it all should work just fine, just wait a bit.

The history and bookmarks part sounds strange — we changed nothing here. Are you sure it’s not auto-config or something else configuration-related?

OK, missing define-configuration explains a lot…

No, I am not sure about anything at all. Maybe my problem us auto-config, I was just guessing!

I’ll wait a bit before trying again, hoping that define-configuration will be back :slight_smile:

I believe this should be fixed now, right @aartaka?

Yes! Hopefully :-D, only one way to find out!

Right. Let’s do it :slight_smile:

Here’s what happens when I start Nyxt, compiled from the current state of master using a very recent Guix, with an empty init.lisp:

  1. Nothing at all for 35 seconds.
  2. Console output:

Fine so far, except for those 35 seconds. What’s happening?

Now let’s put stuff back into init.lisp.

(define-configuration browser
  ((session-restore-prompt :always-restore)))

works fine (after 35 seconds).

(define-configuration buffer
  ((default-modes (append '(nyxt::emacs-mode) %slot-default%))))

35 seconds again, then:

and no browser window.

I’ll stop here, adding just that every define-command-global cases an error message that I don’t understand - it just says that the symbol I am defining is not defined.

every define-command-global causes an error message

I can confirm that. A leaky macro, perhaps?
