I also apologize for it looking like a promotion of sorts. I did copy this from my Birdsite account and forgot to account for that 😅

For those wondering why I decided to make this a Swift package and not a Python module:

- While Python is available on a lot of platforms, I was a bit worried about performance. Additionally, I wasn't sure about Markdown parsing.
- I also considered writing the scripts in C#, but felt that it was a bit clunky to do.
- Furthermore, I thought about Kotlin, but it takes a while to run a Kotlin script for some reason. Probably has to do with passing stuff to the JVM.

Not that Swift would be the best language for the job, but I think it suffices. It also made Markdown parsing easier thanks to the swift-markdown package. I will eventually need to migrate over my older Python scripts.

Finished writing a basic implementation of a Rightwards arrow utility! Should make porting scripts easier. Now to figure out character names to their files… 🤔

Fun fact: The Marteau package is named after the hammer figure in the game, which is also French for "hammer".
