@Merristasis about to link two tracks, is it ok if they’re already on Bandcamp?

@Merristasis what are you looking for for the zine? Visual art or text?

@Merristasis would maybe submit a stripped down version of this, if I find the time to do that mmm.s-ol.nu/articles/realities

@Merristasis aha, a good reason for me to finish a track before November ! :)
you need some help for the zine ?
Could it be easier if it's a website (with pdf/printable version) ? It would imply potentially a less creative layout, but it has a lot of advantages.

@Merristasis We must discuss further, so. I don't know anything about the zine initiative and what's planned / envisioned.

If there are strong expectations about the pdf design and layout, the "hybrid website possibility" can be risky (generating a pdf from a browser environment is still quite experimental). If so, you will have to use a desktop publishing program like Adobe Indesign, Scribus etc...

How can we discuss this thing further ? Who's involved ?

@electret @Merristasis

I initially planned to quickly brush up a sapper project (svelte/sapper are my weapons of choice), with support of markdown/MDX to ease the administration / contribution. No even need for Node on the server side, as the website should not be very dynamic.

@0gust1 @Merristasis looks good 😎 happy to help as much as needed. I would be keen to play on the print version

@electret @Merristasis
I quickly put up a *very crude and ugly* version of the engine here :
github.com/0gust1/merveilles-z

I documented a little in the readme.md and tried to put some example in the source files.

Try to clone the repo and run it on your machine, and tell me what you think.

@electret @Merristasis again, it's very very crude, but if you play a little with it you should get the idea.

@Merristasis In defense of the hybrid website/pdf scenario, with a "brutalist/minimalist" esthetic approach, it can be doable/interesting.

@0gust1 We might discuss it on the Slack server of Merveilles !

@Merristasis OMG... I hate slack 😅 😂

Can you give me the URL ? I don't promise anything, but I may try.

If it fits you, people could also discuss in github issues of github.com/0gust1/merveilles-z (we could even move the repo elsewhere, also)
