Cookbook for Scheme Jakub T. Jankiewicz 25 May 2021 19:08 UTC

It would be nice to have cookbook for common solutions to different

I was looking at old cookbook at WayBack machine:

I think that we can do better than that. Scheme use to be (without SRFI and
latest R7RS spec) very basic language where you need to do everything

It would be nice to have big list of examples that will show how to do common
things in Scheme.

We can create better structure for recipes (Than old cookbook) and give credit
to each recipe author.

Another good example for similar project is Rosetta Code:

It's Wiki with solution to common problems in various languages.

I think that if we write about this in Reddit lot of folks will create
recipes for different things. Maybe just get their own code that they have on
hard drive and share it, so they can showcase their code.

If you want to see similar project you can look at python:

It's like a social project, where users write recipe and others comment on
them. I think that it would be great place to learn Scheme. If this would be
a project that that would be self sustained it would be something that could
be posted to Hacker News independently to posting about website

The project can be started as github repo where users will be creating issues
with recipes. We can even use GitHub API to create website based on GitHub
repo so we don't need to write lot of code.

We can use this project as inspiration:

It's comments for static file hosting like GitHub pages using GitHub issues.

We can start collecting recipes and later work on some code that will
showcase them on website. And we can start by integrating by hand.

From start we should state that all solutions will be released under Creative
Commons license so they could be reused. I would pick CC-BY attribution only
license or CC-0 Public Domain.

And to be clear, I can work on this if I get domain, I
will probably need access to the server. But first we can start with GitHub
repo and publish announcement on Reddit and see if we will have something to
get started with.
