Status Update, May 2022

It has been quite some time since I have written a blog post, but going forward I will try to be better about doing these on a regular basis.

Over the past couple months I have been working on some libraries (scfg, Atom, RSS) for the recently released Hare programming language. Ultimately the goal is to create all the libraries I would need to rewrite beagles using Hare. Currently the hare-scfg library is functional to read and parse configuration files. Both the hare-atom and hare-rss libraries are able to read and parse their respective files, but they do not currently support the entirety of their respective specifications.

That is all for today! Thanks for reading and see y'all next month.
