@kartik_sharma07 Oh, this is just an example of the syntax. Not a real API or anything 🙃 @kartik_sharma07 Not sure what this means? @sjroot Right now the syntax is just a function call, which supports named parameters. @NavicsteinR It's a language I'm working on @lukeed05 that behavior is undefined atm, but there will likely be a way to configure the runtime representation @lukeed05 Oof, I was tinkering with stuff before I screenshot and forgot to revert. It should be method: MehtodThis all parses and type checks ✨ @sophiebits well how many teeth are you selling per year now? @sophiebits Have you simply tried genetically modifying your teeth to be resistant to the sticky crumbs?

Retweeted by Brandon DailThis also shows another small change I made recently: you can omit the parens for functions definitions that don't accept any arguments. @ericreisn What do you want to know? 🙃 @sjroot I'll think about it! I don't personally like it very much, but tbh I haven't used it a ton @zachrip_ No the enums work like Rust, they can hold arbitrary data.
