How did you build this, and how well does it actually work? I tried forking the
fasterthanlime fork it myself, but it looked to me like it was left in a broken
state; I fixed a few things on my own fork, but when running tsc
there are still a couple errors:
packages/capnpc-ts/lib/generators.ts:931:9 - error TS2345: Argument of type 'undefined' is not assignable to parameter of type 'readonly Expression'.
931 __ // arguments
packages/capnpc-ts/lib/generators.ts:985:17 - error TS2345: Argument of type 'undefined' is not assignable to parameter of type 'readonly Expression'.
985 __ // parameters
I assume those had been placeholders. Did you just plow ahead using the
generated code anyway (in which case I assume your schema didn't trigger
that case), or are you doing something that I'm missing when building?
I had a heck of a time trying to get the gulpfile to work, and ended up
just giving up, since running tsc from the top level seemed to work with
some tweaking, modulo the obviously legitimate errors above.
