I’ve been working off-and-on with Shock, my “programming language IDE/shell” in Rust, but I feel too slow when working in Rust. The productivity and working pace is just very slow.
But when I work in Python, I feel a lot more productive. For example, I was able to pick this back up and submit changes to revamp the editing experience in the Python mock-up here.
I think I’ll stick with Python for future prototyping work in Python for Shock. It also helps that I’ve been practicing Python as my primary language for coding interviews 🙂
Until the design of Shock is more fleshed out and better tested, I’ll continue to chug along.
