Hello! Thanks for sharing it. Yes, things are finally getting to the point where I’m ready to start making more noise about it publicly… I’ve been mostly quiet about Spritely while I did the research on the fundamentals. The research, at this point, is mostly done: we’re now at the building stage, with the most foundational layer (Goblins) becoming quite usable.

Happy to talk more if people have questions.


Dang I’m super interested, where can I follow along and maybe contribute?
I wanted to see if there was interest in the idea of sharing functions and libraries via AP

Hi @wooster! Conversation has happened in the IRC channel and on the social media accounts linked at the top of the Spritely website, as well as on the GitLab repo

I haven’t added more yet because that’s already a lot to keep on top of, but maybe in the long run another more asynchronous forum with long-running messages would be nice… especially if dogfood’ed on top of Spritely itself…!

My my… Lucky You   :partying_face:

Look at this beauty:

@cwebber has some very good news news about the Spritely project:

Jessica Tallon joins with a grant from NLNet/NGI Zero! Plus an interview!

Jessica Tallon will start to work on the project, and specifically on the implementation of Petnames with an implementation in Goblin Chat.
