Rewrite into Haxe #918
I am not excited. I have already tried to port some libs from python to haxe without spoiling code structure but have failed. And where it compiles, the resulting code looks ugly, non-idiomatic and makes impression of unneeded overhead. In fact it seems that one cannot just take and port apps to haxe without redesigning. It's the price of fitting into Procrustean bed of intersection of all the supported languages.
Problem of dependence on JS ecosystem, like Node and the most importantly npm and its packages. In particular, I wanna use python to write my bot and I wanna do it without any NPM and JS libs. And later rewrite it into C++ for lower footprint.
Thank you for the explanation @KOLANICH
This is super interesting, but I don't think that Probot is the right project for this purpose. It's not a wildly complicated codebase, with only a few core operations - receiving webhook payloads and authenticating API requests. For that reason, I think its more viable to just build Probot in another language - see #401 for a previous discussion.
I'm going to close this issue for the above reasons - @gr2m feel free to reopen if you feel differently!
