Hello mastodon again. It's been a while.

Let's talk JS Symbols for a sec.

If you define a Symbol property on an object, it's enumerable, by default.

Except that when you try to enumerate it... you can't. It won't show up. Because EnumerateObjectProperties only iterates over String properties. ecma-international.org/ecma-26

The exception here appears to be Object.assign, which will copy any enumerable property.

I don't understand the logic here. Why does it work this way?

You may be able to infer what some of my hobbies are given that I originally thought the CW button was for Morse Code text entry.

Canada needs to join Schengen so I can move to Barcelona.

Life raft.
