Why? you may ask.
Well, my current project (i’m semi-retired) involves a bunch of machines talking to each other, using a framework built on PetriNet , which is grand fun. And some of those machines are cheap.
So out of curiosity I wondered if my dev environment would work on those.
The answer is Yes; on the pi w0, which is arm6, cheap and very competent for the price.
Not that you’d use it for dev if you could avoid it; I just wanted the familiar key sequences wherever.
I had to compile neovim; it took an age of course and I had to grab a couple of things like libtool and gettext. Compiling the correct version of node for CoC was not on - anyway waiting for CoC to do anything would be a paint drying experience.
But treesitter works, pop-up windows, lots of good stuff. Slowish, but quite usable - and this is V0.6 with debug on.
I’m impressed, with linux itself, all the tools around it, and with the neovim project
