[16:55:01] aScottishBoat: what's going on havenwood?
[16:55:58] aScottishBoat: "They're being very careful to avoid a Python 2/3 situation."
[16:56:44] aScottishBoat: ah, we're talking about BC
[16:56:49] aScottishBoat: yeah, don't do it.
[17:09:32] aScottishBoat: do we know anything about what ruby 3 is bringing? is it expected to break BC?
[17:09:48] aScottishBoat: (fingers crossed that it doesn't)
[17:10:13] aScottishBoat: I got into ruby right when 1.9 was phasing out, so I never really used it. I never read about how the transition went
[17:11:11] aScottishBoat: clemens3, making strings immutable by default? wtf?
[17:12:18] aScottishBoat: hmm I'm not against the idea if there's a switch that can be turned on, but by default it sounds a bit mad to me.
[17:13:33] aScottishBoat: require 'fp' # functional programming; fp = FP.new.immutable.immutable? # => true
[17:13:51] aScottishBoat: clemens3, I'm very interested in what ruby 3 is bringing. It's coming out in 2020 right? Ugh, far too long
[17:16:10] aScottishBoat: Just learned about this bad boy. https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2018/02/24/ruby-2-6-0-preview1-released/

[15:54:37] aScottishBoat: why not a stout? Stout with eggs, toast, sausages, that's a great breakfast, too

[18:06:47] aScottishBoat: I'm looking to write a program that utilizes curses _and_ make *potentially* heavy use of executing shell commands directly from the program. Would this be considered bad practice? My instinct tells me 'yes'
[18:07:13] aScottishBoat: But I want to understand why if so, and why not if no
[18:19:47] aScottishBoat: I remember that I used to write some ruby programs backticking cmds along the way, manipulating I/O, etc. and I got heavily criticized for it. That was a while ago, but I never really shook off that I was doing smth bad
[18:20:29] aScottishBoat: I think it may have been the amount of of executing I was doing. Or maybe they didn't know what they were talking about. Irregardless it styaed with me. Thanks for your input eam

[19:58:13] aScottishBoat: I've been wanting to get into a form of martial arts for a number of years now. I will at some point soonish
[19:58:50] aScottishBoat: jeet kune do fascinates me, though. But I'm aware that it's more of an applicable standard/set of techniques to any particular form than just a whole form in unto itself

[13:17:53] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, could you explain that a bit more?
[13:22:14] aScottishBoat: If you're talking like a 'stand-alone' package that can be passed around, you could turn your Ruby app into a container and just pass that container around. Inside that container you just need to add whichever Ruby libraries you use + whatever else, like a database. Then containerize it and ship it
[13:22:35] aScottishBoat: Of course, whoever uses it would need to be familiar with containers.
[13:23:18] aScottishBoat: Well, you could write brief documentation on how to get a something a la Docker up and running quickly
[13:23:21] aScottishBoat: It's not terribly hard
[13:23:40] aScottishBoat: As for something more like a fully-standalone app that can just ship as one executable and 'work', that I am unaware of.
[13:23:45] aScottishBoat: I thought you could... Sec
[13:24:36] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, yes you can.
[13:24:42] aScottishBoat: https://www.docker.com/community-edition#/download
[13:25:20] aScottishBoat: yeah me too lol
[13:25:55] aScottishBoat: honestly using containers may be your best bet. What sort of app are you writing?
[13:27:40] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, naa it sounds cool. I'm sure you'll make a great version.
[13:31:25] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, fantastic news.
[13:32:09] aScottishBoat: havenwood, that looks awesome.
[13:33:42] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, you may want to try havenwood's link first
[13:33:55] aScottishBoat: be back in a few mins
[14:28:59] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, so what's up? what new revelations have been made?
[14:30:19] aScottishBoat: Man, traveling ruby does look cool. So hanetzer what do you do?
[14:35:27] aScottishBoat: you're not JAPH are you
[14:35:35] aScottishBoat: you love the $$$''ssss
[14:36:35] aScottishBoat: in fact, this weekend I started my foray into the perl world. It's quite quirky, but I want to add it to my toolkit for text processing.
[14:48:13] aScottishBoat: Just Another Perl Hacker
[14:48:29] aScottishBoat: maybe you're also a PHP guy :P?
[14:57:16] aScottishBoat: I love C. But I'm not quite JACH yet
[14:57:39] aScottishBoat: how's the shelter you work at? You work with good people?
[15:06:10] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, do you have any public repos or github?
[17:03:19] aScottishBoat: mikhael_k33hl, no sorry.
[18:15:56] aScottishBoat: I love PHP personally simply because I can get an app out and in beta very quickly. I don't have to work with any frameworks, etc.
[18:16:32] aScottishBoat: And the API is very extensive. Anything I could want is already there in PHP. Is the language ugly? Jaysus it's atrocious. But no more atrocious than JS, imho.
[18:16:58] aScottishBoat: Therefore I just settle on PHP. I used to use Sinatra but it's been ages. I do plan to get back into it, at some point.
[18:17:49] aScottishBoat: dminuoso, I've never used it. I should check it out. Likewise, I've never used the HHVM.
[18:18:04] aScottishBoat: Hack and PHP interoperate together, correct?
[18:18:15] aScottishBoat: well that sounds nice
[18:19:43] aScottishBoat: hmm says Hack isn't embedded into HTML. I quite like that of PHP. But maybe that's where I would use Hack in pure .php files
[18:19:49] aScottishBoat: to replace pure .php files*
[18:20:21] aScottishBoat: Fair criticism. My favourite aspect of PHP is that I can *embed* directly into HTML.
[18:22:04] aScottishBoat: it obscures the abstraction between the various processes involved with routing and handling url parameters, and <--> to/from the DB
[18:22:14] aScottishBoat: err I worded that oddly but you get it
[18:22:23] aScottishBoat: ^^ what he said
[18:55:57] aScottishBoat: hanetzer and I were discussing using Docker earlier today. I recommended it too (Glad to see others find containers so great!). If I recall, his main concern with using a container is that it adds an extra layer of technology overhead to his users of whom he'd prefer to only run executables.
[18:56:17] aScottishBoat: Actually, I never really asked, hanetzer: why are you insisting on Rails and Ruby? What's making this project so Ruby-oriented?
[18:57:06] aScottishBoat: building on the first thing I said, I think he fears some of his users are going to be quite technically unsavvy. Therefore, executables
[18:57:27] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, oh sweet. Didn't know that.
[18:58:40] aScottishBoat: do I hear... a potential FOSS project in the works requiring collaboration? Hmmm.
[18:59:01] aScottishBoat: #ruby's your friend. So keep coming back for Q's
[19:01:02] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, man I never knew about TR before. I would have loved to use it . Maybe a fork can be made and maintained?
[19:01:25] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, if you find out that you're just a traveling ruby fanatic by the end of this, let me know haha
[19:29:15] aScottishBoat: I would imagine
[19:29:41] aScottishBoat: I guess at that point if you really want to be fancy you could make a site specific browser, but that may be taking this project too far lmao
[19:30:38] aScottishBoat: man this project gets more exciting by the hour
[19:51:04] aScottishBoat: hanetzer, what do you mean by marshal'd data?

[17:20:31] aScottishBoat: cheeky Spaniards
[17:20:54] aScottishBoat: doubtful no one can type upside down ! that fast without a Spanish keyboard layout
[17:22:30] aScottishBoat: you're from Ireland aren't you
[17:22:32] aScottishBoat: I figured it out
[17:32:57] aScottishBoat: there was a famous American, can't remember his name
[17:33:21] aScottishBoat: in the 1800s he didn't approve of a war the US was in and he didn't pay his taxes knowing they were going to the military
[17:34:03] aScottishBoat: his friends eventually paid the taxes and he was free

[21:40:10] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, I asked that same question earlier a la "Am I evil if I use perl?"
[21:40:18] aScottishBoat: mate do you use it?
[21:40:46] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, awesome. Want to meet me in #ruby-offtopic and explain to me why? I'd really like to get my hands dirty with it
[21:41:04] aScottishBoat: >> puts "perl's not dead!"
[21:41:21] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, welcome mate
[21:41:27] aScottishBoat: so yeah man tell me all about why you like perl
[21:43:36] aScottishBoat: interesting didn't know it did that
[21:44:09] aScottishBoat: I'm thinking of making a Dancer2 app
[21:44:49] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, man I'd love that. You could show me some of the perl ropes, yeah?
[21:45:14] aScottishBoat: aw man I was under the impression that the perl community was like Ruby's :/
[21:45:27] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, still you're lightyears ahead of me
[21:45:55] aScottishBoat: because you said you enjoy writing perl
[21:48:52] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, I'd love that. Yeah, I was a system developer before now, but I'm currently in DevOps lol
[21:50:06] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, yes, the fact that the linux specification makes an explicit statement on perl makes me want to use it more. I love linux up and down, so C plus Perl would be ideal for me.
[21:50:16] aScottishBoat: maintaining a server/php stack
[21:51:15] aScottishBoat: what sort of project would you want to make?
[21:52:07] aScottishBoat: that's okay, I love man pages, as long as they are *well* written ;) :)
[21:52:14] aScottishBoat: good documentation makes me so happy
[21:52:59] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, do you use linux? which distro if so?
[21:53:12] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, well we can spearhead some smallscale devops project if you'd like
[21:54:01] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, awesome man I'm actually excited
[21:54:12] aScottishBoat: We should find a better place to talk so we don't spam #ruby-offtopic lol
[21:55:13] aScottishBoat: apeiros, too late although I'm sure we'll stuff banter in here irregardless
[21:56:10] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, yeah it deserves to be there
[21:56:48] aScottishBoat: miah: how come?
[21:58:33] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, seriously? I never meet SUSE users
[21:58:59] aScottishBoat: btw i use arch
[21:59:29] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser I think it is lol
[22:00:52] aScottishBoat: _sfiguser, just dive straight into it, or check out Antergos. It's unlike Manjaro that has a set 'update' period (not like Arch), but it's basically a glorified frontend for installing Arch. Also, it adds *one* database to the package manager with Antergos binaries
[22:00:55] aScottishBoat: and yes, it all rocks
[22:02:43] aScottishBoat: but it's all source compiling, right?
[22:03:06] aScottishBoat: I do hear glorious things about *BSD, but... I like my package managers (apt is okay though)
