Jason Scott just dumped the ZIL source code for every infocom game on github. Clone it before Activision's lawyers wake up. And now we see how long it takes for the internet to produce a compiler for a language that's been dead for 30+ years from a cache of production grade source code for said language. We've had compiled z-machine files, but never the original ZIL. github.com/historicalsource

@izaliamae @MadestMadness @xarph i mean it works but parsing json with grep sed and awk would get you shot in some neighborhoods

@MadestMadness @Xarph Here's a nifty Bash one-liner that will do exactly that. Run it in a fresh directory.

GHUSER=historicalsource; curl "api.github.com/users/$GHUSER/r" | grep -w clone_url | grep -o '[^"]\+://.\+.git' | xargs -L1 git clone
