Maybe just scalap for platform?
I still see 0 technical benefit to having a platform package, and several technical liabilities. The few arguments in favor of the proposal are social, and there are equally problematic social arguments compensating them (library in 2 platforms, or what happens when a library is removed from a platform).
I don’t understand why this proposal is still considered to be on track and virtually accepted.
Agreed – it seems like an overall bad idea, and I’m a bit mystified as to why everyone seems to be steaming ahead full speed towards it…
This is part of my plan to conquer the world
Yes, I agree, I think you’re all right on this one. The technical disabilities were planned to be fixed with a
package alias language feature and automatic rewrites. But it’s too soon to talk about them, and it’s better to avoid this problem upfront by not having a common namespace for the Scala Platform.
Thank you all for your insights, it’s been interesting to get familiar with your good points.
