What is this devlog?


Since this summer I have been doing a lot more coding again, after possibly a few years. I had been learning Rust a bit before, but I didn't really have any real projects to work. Until I came across these videos about writing an emulator for the 6502 microprocessor, in C++, though. I thought that it would be a good idea to try to translate that over to Rust as a project.

Fast forward a few months and I've already made good progress with it. Most instructions are functioning and I even have built a simple TUI. But I've also been creating some other projects. I really love how TUI apps look, so I'm also making a sort of a desktop widget tool and an interface to ChatGPT.

Anyway, I've been wanting to document some of my learning and I've been feeling inspired by other devlogs, both in blog form and on YouTube. So I thought I'd just pull the trigger and do it.

I wanted to keep it simple, so this website is just built using plain HTML and CSS. I do not have the time to research whatever JS framework/library everybody is using these days, and there really is no reason to make it that complicated.

It might happen that I stop coding for months at a time again, but who cares, no one is probably reading this anyway. I just like to have an outlet that I can post these random thoughts and my progression to.
