Status of 8th, pre launch

Currently waiting for @taiyab to cook up an 8th logo based on the artwork provided by Ron Aaron, the developer of 8th.

CD/CI code is needed too. I’ve got the bin/test code working but need to get my head around the flagging of failed tests in a regression test situation.

I don’t think the latter stops us launching. The icon is the barrier.

Oh by the way, there’s no highlight.js for 8th. We may be able to adapt the rules that are in the VSCode plugin for 8th. There are colouration files for other editors on the 8th site IIRC.

(cc @ajoshguy for the highlightjs bit :slightly_smiling_face:)

I just noticed today that the track icon has been created.

Re highlighting: the solution is to implement a plugin for highlight.js. Daunting, but I’m (eventually) going to tackle it for jq. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Also to keep in mind: the exercism lines of code counter uses XAMPPRocky/tokei. Read about how to add a language, although I don’t see that the maintainer is responding to PRs which is problematic.
