In recent few weeks, I worked to implement a programming language I talked about years before in 由汉语编程所想到的 and 我的一种关于lisp方言式的汉语编程语言的构思，it is called Ming(名 in Chinese). The core spirit of this language has alrady been explained in Chinese at the preface chapter of its doc. In this post, I’ll try to explain it in English.
Cast my mind back to the first time I learn programming, around that time I was struggling to figure out all the ingredients about programming through reading books, back then I remember the boring feeling so clearly. Eventally I was obliged to give up the reading and tried to learn programming through directly writing code to resovle tiny problems I’d confronted.
Most recently, I’m very passionate about chinese classical culture. If we take a deep look at the core of chinese culture, we are going to notice all of them include Traditional Chinese Medicine and 24 solar terms and even the way how ancient chinese recording time as their calendar, which is a mix of solar calendar and lunar calendar, are derived from Yijing. In a way, we can say that almost all the chinese things are built on the top of ideas of Yijing, although to this day the importance of it has been diminished by the developing of modern western science.
Recently I have been in the project to develop Wechat Mini programs, and when it comes to the part of decrypting data, I find out there does not exist a Ruby Gem for this although the Wechat official provides code sample but it is only for Python/PHP/C++. So I decided to resemble the Python source code and write a Ruby Gem based on it.
Recently I received an email of a github comment on a Racket Package of mine named http-client, which was announced to release by my post of Announcing the release of http-client. Until then, I realized there really exist someone using my packages except me. This also make me realize I already came to the point to fathom out the design of Racket’s package version that I tried before and abandoned because of being short on time, and I should commit to add versions to my packages.
I’m writing this post to announce the release of a new Racket package called Qweather, the source code of it is at: https://www.github.com/yanyingwang/qweather.
