02:14:21FromGitter<zetashift> Why isn't this printing `c` instead of `b`? https://pastebin.com/fKLUkmgv
02:17:08FromGitter<kayabaNerve> @zetashift What is it printing?
02:17:41FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Also, you set the initial value to 1 and only increment it on the second time, yet you return it when it finds 1
02:17:52FromGitter<kayabaNerve> L11 should be == 0
02:18:15FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Or you should move the increment out of the else
02:18:24FromGitter<kayabaNerve> *set the intial value to 0
02:18:34FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Or you should have the initial value set to 1
02:20:56FromGitter<zetashift> @kayabaNerve thanks! it's printing all together `{'a': 3, 'b': 1, 'c': 0, 'd': 0} ⏎ b ⏎ `
02:21:39FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Got it. So did I solve it? :P
02:23:03FromGitter<zetashift> I need to increment it everytime it stumbles on that char again
02:23:12FromGitter<zetashift> but the initial value had to be set to 1 yeah
02:25:49FromGitter<zetashift> this is my code currently and it correctly prints the table with it's values but still the wrong value: https://pastebin.com/WCvGqy3Z
02:28:00FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Why are you using a table btw
02:28:16FromGitter<kayabaNerve> And it's because you don't break out of your for loop
02:28:58FromGitter<zetashift> thought it would be the best structure to handle this.
02:29:05FromGitter<zetashift> maybe a Seq would be faster
02:29:15FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Generally a double for is using
02:29:15FromGitter<zetashift> A Seq containing a Seq*
02:29:57FromGitter<zetashift> thanks that solved it :P

02:37:48FromGitter<kayabaNerve> ... are you supposed to be able to break out of if statements?
02:39:00FromGitter<kayabaNerve> I would've never guessed yes except that's what's happening right now.
02:39:17*cyraxjoe quit (Quit: I'm out!)
02:39:42FromGitter<zetashift> you can do an early return yea that's what I did, not sure if that's good practice though
02:39:55FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Docs say `break` breaks out of its block statement. An if statement is... possibly technically a block statement? Except I'm trying to use the if to decide if I want to break out of the for loop. Because it's breaking out of an if an if statement, the loop still runs
02:40:09FromGitter<zetashift> I just did `return k`
02:40:12FromGitter<kayabaNerve> I can't name a loop so I'd have to put the loop in a named block statement to do this if this is intended
02:40:18FromGitter<kayabaNerve> @zetashift I'm not talking about your code
02:40:31FromGitter<zetashift> ah sorry

02:48:17FromGitter<kayabaNerve> There's the two loop version, and the generic answer to your problem.
02:49:37FromGitter<kayabaNerve> A seq + checking if the seq contains it effectively does the same thing

09:00:52PMunchmartin1_, just merged your PR for nimlsp
09:01:07PMunchHow's the stability by the way? I've been getting some random freezes
09:01:33PMunchI can see in the Sublime console window that it is trying to send requests, but nimlsp seems to be hanging on something
09:02:34PMunchI'm assuming it's either nimsuggest output it's waiting for, or it's something around its input/output streams that locks up
09:26:07Araqthe joys of interprocess communication
09:47:59FromGitter<survivorm> Oh yeah. Freezes in random places, sometimes interwined with something low-level. Joy of debugging interprocess communications is something that couldn't be underestimated :)
10:03:56FromGitter<alehander42> can we add `isEmpty` to the stdlib
10:04:15FromGitter<alehander42> I am sure somebody else suggested it before, but I can't remember if people liked the idea or hated it
10:10:03FromGitter<alehander42> maybe `not isEmpty` looks strange ? I think I prefer it compared to `len > 0` still
10:11:20FromGitter<Varriount> @PMunch How's the language server?
10:12:37FromGitter<alehander42> when do we usually get `len(a) == L` seq modified while iterating over it [AssertionError] ?

11:08:34*floppydh joined #nim
11:09:20FromGitter<alehander42> Araq, that's true, some types can overload `isEmpty` with more optimal checks
11:09:45*Vladar quit (Remote host closed the connection)
11:09:48FromGitter<alehander42> well the use of TR macros is impl detail
11:14:44Araqhmm thinking the unthinkable here
11:15:09Araqmaybe every string should really be an Option[string not empty]
11:16:16FromGitter<mratsim> as long as options are”cost-free” abstractions in most cases
11:16:55Araqwell I don't want to write if not x.isEmpty: for y in x.unwrap():
11:17:03FromGitter<mratsim> everytime I see string processing I’m always think “so where will this allocate and how can I avoid this” and the common answer is avoid strings :D
11:17:46Araqavoiding strings is generally a good thing, not only for performance, but also for correctness
11:18:40martin1_I'm pretty much a newcomer to the language so maybe this was already discussed but, given that nim is style insesitive it would be nice if nimsuggest could be configured to enforce a style on the suggestions, wouldn't it?
11:19:02Araqwe're getting 'nim --styleCheck:error' for that
11:19:04FromGitter<mratsim> there is a -nep1 flag to warn
11:19:10FromGitter<alehander42> thankfully, strings are unavoidable in real world
11:19:23Araqmratsim: already renamed to --styleCheck
11:19:26FromGitter<mratsim> the real world is a matrix, and you don’t need strings there :D
11:19:50FromGitter<alehander42> Araq, why is it so important if a string is empty on a type level ?
11:20:13Araqbecause it's usually invalid.
11:20:20Araqempty filename? that's special.
11:20:23FromGitter<alehander42> eh nope
11:20:25Araqempty Nim identifier? special.
11:20:32FromGitter<alehander42> well that's why filenames and idents have their own types
11:20:50Araqan empty SQL query? likely something special.
11:20:57FromGitter<alehander42> it's the same as saying "empty lists are usually invalid"
11:21:11FromGitter<alehander42> sql: again it needs its own type in good code
11:21:15Araqand that would be equally true
11:21:38Araqkeep in mind that you're talking to the only person left who dislikes Option[T]
11:22:25FromGitter<alehander42> :D I see this and still here I think the lesson is different
11:22:32FromGitter<alehander42> if your data is probably invalid for len == 0
11:22:44FromGitter<alehander42> probably you need to `distinct` or wrap it somehow
11:23:29Araqtype SqlQuery = distinct Option[string not empty] ?
11:23:53FromGitter<alehander42> yeah maybe
11:23:56FromGitter<alehander42> but still
11:24:00FromGitter<alehander42> if you think about it
11:24:07FromGitter<alehander42> it just needs a full blown validation assert
11:24:14FromGitter<alehander42> abs paths need to start with `/`
11:24:22FromGitter<alehander42> sql queries need to be valid
11:24:32FromGitter<alehander42> idents need to be \w
11:24:44Araqyeah and what does the validator return?
11:24:44FromGitter<alehander42> the len check is a lot of work for just one edge case
11:25:20FromGitter<alehander42> well, hopefully something that can optionally contain an error message :D
11:25:25Araqit returns an (string not empty) | Error
11:25:45Araq(or it raises an exception, yadda yadda)
11:26:00FromGitter<alehander42> well ok, string not empty seems fine
11:26:51FromGitter<alehander42> but my point is that you can also have domains where string len>=4 or string [a-zA-Z] makes perfect sense
11:27:14Araqsure and also empty lines are usually perfectly fine and valid
11:27:27Araqso it's really lines(): seq[string]
11:27:34Araqnot lines(): seq[string not empty]
11:27:38FromGitter<alehander42> no, what I mean is that in the same vein people might say "I want type string len >= A"
11:27:56FromGitter<alehander42> and know you want dependent types :D
11:28:23AraqI think you don't want dependent types.
11:28:57FromGitter<alehander42> yeah, but string not empty is a hardcoded instance of a dependent type
11:29:22FromGitter<alehander42> I hope that one day somebody will make them magic/ergonomic enough to use in normal langs :D
11:29:28Araqit's a useful hardcoding
11:29:41Araqthere is always the more general solution lurking everywhere
11:30:01Araqso everything ends up in sophistry.
11:30:04FromGitter<alehander42> yeah which reminds me
11:31:06Araqand while we are talking about type thery some javascript kiddie implements Bomberman for the iPhone and becomes a millionaire
11:32:25FromGitter<alehander42> the sink type in destructors, is it basically an affine type or a linear type? does it have to be always consumed?
11:32:49Araqit's affine.
11:33:08AraqI started with "always has to be consumed" and gave up rather quickly
11:33:23FromGitter<alehander42> well good for the kiddie, games are useful too
11:33:29Araqit's a much harder problem, and in addition to that, also annoying
11:33:50FromGitter<alehander42> yeah , so the wiki is a bit older
11:34:06Araqproc put(t: Table; key, val: sink U) # overwrite t[key] if it exists, otherwise create the entry
11:34:10FromGitter<alehander42> yeah it doesn't seem too useful too
11:34:27Araqnote that you want 'key' to be 'sink' but whether it really is consumed varies at runtime
11:35:10Araqwell I suppose you could swap() the key then
11:35:32FromGitter<alehander42> yeah iirc this was the problem: with branched code often you have a case where a var is not consumed
11:35:59Araqneither Rust nor C++ are after linear types, that's telling us something
11:36:03FromGitter<alehander42> yes
11:36:54Araqon the other hand "AST substructure is not added to tree" is a bug linear types would find
11:37:38FromGitter<alehander42> so this affine check mechanism would be general enough to be used for various resources , e.g. modelling that a network message is always consumed max once etc ?
11:37:54FromGitter<alehander42> in the beginning I thought this is something deeply tied to memory ptr types
11:38:26Araqdepending on how you structure the code, 'sink' will find this problem.
11:40:03FromGitter<alehander42> good. and the linear types: what is so hard about checking them, if you have the ability to prove that a value is used in a branch (which you do? if you have affine types?) can't you just check if its provable in all branches?
11:40:44FromGitter<alehander42> actually you just prove that is not used after consumption
11:40:49FromGitter<alehander42> I have to take a look at it
11:41:42Araqevery function call can 'raise', that's why.
11:42:21Araqand before you say "aha, exceptions bad!!!!!", the 'if error: return/goto errHandler' has exactly the same problem
11:42:41FromGitter<alehander42> so if a function calls only functions with checked side effects? is it easier then?
11:42:54FromGitter<alehander42> no, I like exceptions
11:44:00Araqif we map overflows to exceptions (and what would be the alternative anyway?) every function can raise
11:44:01FromGitter<alehander42> yeah you wrote Furthermore the compiler should probably get even smarter in its inference of raises: [].
11:44:25AraqI changed my mind a bit, raises: [] is a myth
11:44:41Araqit's programming, programs run on physical machines, you can always have
11:44:44Araqoverflows
11:44:49Araqout of heap memory
11:44:49FromGitter<alehander42> and if we map overflow, we get exceptions everywhere?
11:44:53Araqout of stack space.
11:45:58FromGitter<alehander42> well, some of those errors are probably "fatal", so one shouldn't guarantee correctness after them
11:47:48Araqthat works but then you cannot recover from non-critical component failures
11:48:00Araqunless you assume an OS with process management
11:49:43Araqand libraries that willy-nilly call exit because "exceptions are bad, mmkay?" are not that convincing
11:50:24Araqthat remains true when it was the Nim compiler that inserted these trap instructions
11:56:06FromGitter<alehander42> hm true
11:56:14FromGitter<alehander42> I have to read more about that
11:56:38FromGitter<alehander42> ok, how do languages with linear types deal with this

13:40:46AraqPMunch, how do you call nimsuggest? as a process or do you use it as a library?
13:41:45PMunchAs a process
13:41:55PMunchIs it available as a library?
13:42:18Araqwell kind of, you would need to replicate the program driver
13:42:51PMunchHuh?
13:43:12*Vladar joined #nim
13:43:25PMunchBasically right now I open nimsuggest in stdin mode and ready and write to the process
13:43:32PMunchOne process for each project file
13:43:44*endragor joined #nim
13:43:59Araqnimsuggest.nim uses the compiler as a library
13:44:05Araqyour program could do the same
13:44:16Araqyes, it uses undocumented hooks
13:44:45Araqwe can document these and ensure they are reasonably stable now that the compiler's hardest refactorings are behind us
13:45:31Araqbtw communication over stdin/stdout is much more fragile than sockets IME
13:45:36PMunchSo basically reverse engineer nimsuggest?
13:46:05PMunchYeah I know, but with sockets I would need to find an unused port for each of the nimsuggest procedures I need to have running
13:46:56Araq"revese engineer" 600 lines of code, yes
13:46:59PMunchBut making a library out of nimsuggest would definitely be the best
13:47:34Araqand most of its complexity is the multi-threading that it does
13:47:48PMunchYeah it's not huge, but still there's some work to be done to make it work
13:47:50Araqand that you can hopefully avoid, but I'm not sure

14:27:07FromGitter<Varriount> PMunch: ^
14:30:20PMunchHmm I guess
14:30:28PMunchStill think a library is the way to go thoug
14:32:11FromGitter<Varriount> A library is harder to integrate with.
14:32:47PMunchHow so?
14:33:46PMunchA library with "var nimsuggest = initNimSuggest(projectfile = "somefile.nim"); nimsuggest.sug("somefile.nim", "dirtyfile.nim", 10,4)" syntax should be much easier than socket or stdin communication
14:33:55FromGitter<Varriount> Not all languages have easy C interoperability.
14:34:14FromGitter<Varriount> How would we load this library in JS, or Python?
14:34:42PMunchOh yeah, I'm not saying that nimsuggest should be turned into library, just that it should also be available as a library.
14:35:11Araqthe LSP server would use nimsuggest as a library, the editors use the LSP protocol
14:35:20Araqno language integration woes
14:35:32PMunchI imagine the nimsuggest program should just be read from socket/stdin -> Call corresponding library function -> write out over socket/stdout
14:37:18PMunchI think we should maintain the capability of writing direct nimsuggest plugins
14:37:43PMunchJust add the possibility to interact with nimsuggest from Nim without having to go through a socket/stdin

15:17:21FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I get this error: ⏎ ⏎ ```code paste, see link``` [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5be45381bb8878747499174b]
15:19:18FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> Simon Peyton has a video illustrating Haskell with an extension for linear typing through function restrictions and mentions Rust as being one of the few with a linear type system (using borrowing and ownership) https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=linear+haskell+&&view=detail&mid=8999700116D3709B94838999700116D3709B9483&&FORM=VRDGAR
15:19:59PMunchkaushalmodi, yes + only works between sets
15:20:29FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> In Rust they try to leave out exceptions and prefer the Result type which includes the error and leaving "panic" for exceptional cases.
15:20:31PMunchSee this: https://nim-lang.org/docs/manual.html#types-set-type
15:20:45PMunchSo if you want to add a unit to a set you need to use incl
15:21:05PMunchWhich is the same as adding a set only containing that one unit
15:21:09FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so it would be ``` {'b' .. 'z'} + {'a'} ``` basically
15:21:33PMunchSo either {'b'..'z'} + {'a'} or {'b'..'z'}.incl 'a'
15:21:56PMunchpr-yemibedu, sounds like Midori
15:22:54FromGitter<kaushalmodi> PMunch: Thanks. I was just confirming
15:23:08FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Was porting that set of Nim by Examples to my notes which I found that issue
15:23:25FromGitter<kaushalmodi> may be `+` was overloaded for `set[T],T` at some point
15:24:03FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> it could be overloaded. but the explicit nature as it stands makes better sense
15:24:14FromGitter<kaushalmodi> @pr-yemibedu I agree :)
15:24:29FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Wanted to check if anyone knew the history of deprecating that older syntax
15:25:02FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> I don't but it makes the algebra more concrete.
15:25:15AraqI don't recall any changes for + on sets
15:26:12FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Araq: I stumbled upon this when reading https://nim-by-example.github.io/bitsets/
15:26:38FromGitter<kaushalmodi> the table there seems a bit outdated compared to one in https://nim-lang.github.io/Nim/manual.html#types-set-type

15:30:29FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> or do you want to add the convenience to the language?
15:34:04FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> speaking of, does a person do a type check on a value or variable for conditional processing? ```

15:38:32FromGitter<alehander42> @pr-yemibedu ok, but isn't Rust using affine types: it checks if a value is borrowed

16:24:01*Vladar quit (Remote host closed the connection)
16:28:00FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> Just realize that Simon gave credit to Rust team and contributors for being first for having a *practical implementation* of a useful constraint to reason about correctness.
16:31:01FromGitter<Varriount> Meh, depends on your definition of practical.
16:33:58FromGitter<mratsim> I thought formal language like Coq or even Idris had that?
16:35:10FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> practical means the implementation can be used for real world applications where the average effort is not more than the total understanding of the concept involved. Since the language uses this all throughout *safe* code, it is simplified its meaning and it also enables the compiler to help you fine straightforward cases to maintain the constraint.
16:35:28FromGitter<alehander42> I agree, not many people use idris
16:35:35FromGitter<alehander42> btw idris is adding uniqueness types iirc
16:35:41FromGitter<alehander42> this should be interesting
16:35:47FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> Idris does not have it just yet
16:35:52FromGitter<mratsim> I’m sure Ada has that stuff and it powers aerospace
16:37:33FromGitter<alehander42> uniqueness types are like an alt of monads
16:37:35FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> Idris does not guarantee that the use of a ref is limited. It may tell you that you type have a structural constraint.
16:37:57FromGitter<mratsim> ref can escape in Idris?
16:38:22FromGitter<alehander42> for side effects: they seem inspired by Clean, I read some criticism of Clean's uniqueness types practicity tho
16:38:48FromGitter<alehander42> @pr-yemibedu http://docs.idris-lang.org/en/latest/reference/uniqueness-types.html
16:38:58FromGitter<alehander42> > A value with a unique type is guaranteed to have at most one reference to it at run-tim
16:39:16FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> oh so nice. thank you.
16:39:17FromGitter<alehander42> but it does seem newer ⏎ ⏎ > They are inspired by linear types, Uniqueness Types in the Clean programming language, and ownership types and borrowed pointers in the Rust programming language.
16:39:25FromGitter<alehander42> so in a way, you're still correct
16:40:29FromGitter<alehander42> unique types in clean seem fun: ftp://ftp.cs.ru.nl/pub/Clean/papers/2008/vrie08-IFL07-UniquenessTypingSimplified.pdf
16:40:57FromGitter<alehander42> in their example e.g. file operation returns a "new" file handler which is a "different type"
16:41:11FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> pdf not found on server.
16:41:13FromGitter<alehander42> which makes the usage "referentially transparent"
16:41:27FromGitter<alehander42> did this mean that it's always the same if called several times?
16:41:43FromGitter<alehander42> ugh gitter breaks it
16:41:44FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so the Pony programming language does a lot of work to help to allow some of this. Reference capabilities.
16:41:48FromGitter<alehander42> you have to copy the ftp://
16:41:49FromGitter<alehander42> too
16:41:55FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> okay. got it.
16:43:27FromGitter<alehander42> hm I was thinking of idempotent
16:43:50FromGitter<alehander42> this definition of "pure" seems strange to me, the side effect only applies to the input which is never used again
16:43:56FromGitter<alehander42> but it still changes the actual "world"
16:44:29FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> So this allows Pony to compile to nice little binaries and have all kinds of nice features. https://tutorial.ponylang.io/capabilities/reference-capabilities.html
16:44:48FromGitter<alehander42> I haven't analyzed Pony a lot, how are capabilities different than e.g. a ownership checker
16:45:48FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so when Simon talks about effecting, He mentions as getting new tokens for channels over getting a sequenced token for transitioning to a *new world*.
16:46:02*mrwonko joined #nim
16:48:42FromGitter<alehander42> seems interesting, I have to play with it to make sense of it
16:48:52xaceI have tried variatons of this, but cant I define a proc in a similiar fashion?: proc isSrt(extension:string): bool = if extension == ".srt": return true else: return false
16:48:57FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> So the Rep Cap of Pony has more transitive states for the data than you see with Rust.
16:49:06FromGitter<alehander42> I don't understand very well how the tag cap helps with sharing data
16:49:49FromGitter<alehander42> so I usually work with ref and val in my actor and then write to iso or val and send this other actors?
16:50:15FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> @alehander42 have you seen the little matrix of read and write of the caps? https://soyyomakesgames.wordpress.com/2016/10/10/ponys-capabilities-made-simple/
16:52:41FromGitter<alehander42> I see, this makes more sense
16:52:49FromGitter<alehander42> so basically they have something like erlang
16:52:57FromGitter<alehander42> but instead of sending copies of data around
16:53:16FromGitter<alehander42> they share it internally most of the time but they protect it using the caps
16:53:21FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> as you notice *tag* sounds like a way to identify something
16:54:11FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so they can gain performance by not having to copy all the data.
16:54:22FromGitter<alehander42> yes exactly
16:54:32FromGitter<alehander42> sounds cool
16:55:05FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> they also help you to have more control over lifetimes of data so each actor can collect garbage without global state checks.
16:55:43*martin1__ quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
16:55:46FromGitter<alehander42> of course, now I wonder if any of the nim actor libs can somehow have similar type-based impl
16:56:02FromGitter<alehander42> hm, that's also nice
16:56:07FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> the beauty comes at a price.
16:56:53FromGitter<alehander42> what are the cons
16:58:27FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> Pony and Rust and Idris have these semantics all the way down.
16:59:44FromGitter<alehander42> well, that's true. but still I can imagine that in languages like Nim you can at least limit some kind of subset in which you can simulate something similar
17:00:06FromGitter<alehander42> like , how C has subset impl-s with very strong static checkers
17:01:03FromGitter<alehander42> I read that the rust guys had a more pony-like design in the beginning https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/34rszb/pony_type_and_memory_safe_language/cqxkmm8/
17:02:09FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so the love of Nim having options means that many things needs lots of checking over what is implementing which set of features.
17:02:35FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> you can do many of these things in Nim.
17:03:36FromGitter<alehander42> yeah, I agree, I still find it interesting to experiment with
17:03:47FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so the limits are that you would need type to be able to describe use constraints (of that the functions can give guarantees they will use the data as prescribed).
17:04:05FromGitter<alehander42> maybe the biggest problem with languages like Pony/Erlang is: they seem very cool for their domain, but I wouldn't want to use them for everything

17:05:27FromGitter<mratsim> I think you can subvert the effect system to do capabilities ;)
17:05:42FromGitter<mratsim> or “hasCustomPragma” annotations :P
17:05:47FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> I agree. I like the notion of subsets of the language being Rust like or Pony like to help reason and to get Python like quickness of prototyping an idea.
17:06:52FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> that would attach the capabilities to the function site and not guarantee transition with the data.
17:07:14FromGitter<alehander42> you can attach pragmas to variables
17:07:24FromGitter<alehander42> but I have no idea what they can do
17:07:32FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> a new assignment would loose a capability implicitly. Pony forces you to be explicit about this.
17:08:37*martin1__ joined #nim

17:09:11FromGitter<alehander42> wow I was just writing the same syntax
17:09:28FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> that makes sense, but the compiler needs more machinery if those caps were to be reversed.
17:09:37FromGitter<alehander42> oh yeah
17:09:52FromGitter<alehander42> but I can still imagine hacks
17:10:00FromGitter<alehander42> e.g. you can have an actor pragma
17:10:11FromGitter<mratsim> pragmas, pragmas everywhere
17:10:28FromGitter<alehander42> for a function and analyze all the var usage inside.. but then you need to invoke only other actor functions
17:10:39FromGitter<alehander42> and you basically reimplement effect checking
17:10:46FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> that is just for locals. so when a val is passed into the procedure, the price has to be paid in a lot of spots beyond simple macro transforms.
17:10:51FromGitter<mratsim> I wonder how far monster went with his Actor library https://forum.nim-lang.org/t/3291
17:12:22FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> his last reply literally mentions Pony as a base for further analysis :) :-) .
17:15:16FromGitter<alehander42> I wonder if somebody did a compiled-to-erlang research typed lang
17:15:25FromGitter<alehander42> also possible to find cool ideas there
17:15:50FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> so does Nim have support for traits? That would allow for other provisions on data.
17:17:13FromGitter<alehander42> btw session types seem like something that could be also very cool
17:17:32FromGitter<alehander42> for an actor-based lang , somehow encoding protocol validity
17:18:37FromGitter<alehander42> found the idea here http://ohad.space/blog/Quartz:%20Towards%20a%20statically%20typed%20Erlang.html

17:19:20FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> and the Simon Peyton video touches on this.
17:19:25FromGitter<mratsim> traits like Rust? imho concepts are more powerful
17:20:15FromGitter<mratsim> what’s the difference between session types and Generics?
17:20:33FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> the too new for prime time language Hackett has many videos. Some engage this talk about them. author Alexis King.
17:21:06FromGitter<mratsim> actually session types can probably be implemented as concepts: ⏎ ⏎ > Session types are a type discipline for communication-centric programming, where programs can be checked to see if they conform to protocols.

17:24:07FromGitter<pr-yemibedu> the code contracts vs the data contracts involves a lot of extra typing. Very good in its ability to exist but then starts to make have a ref cap palatable.

18:44:54FromGitter<Vindaar> @mrwonko Indeed, the NN demo requires to manually compile and start the JS and C programs independently. Both could be done via `nimble` though. I can try to implement that later, if you like. ⏎ I'm not sure what you mean by "statically embedding" the JS program though.
18:45:10FromGitter<Vindaar> (the compiling, not the starting of course)
18:46:15FromGitter<mrwonko> I mean once the nim frontend has been compiled to JS, that can be read by the backend at compile time and included directly in the binary, so the web server can serve it to the client from memory.
18:47:12FromGitter<Vindaar> Oh, well in principle that should be "easy"
18:47:24FromGitter<mrwonko> I'll probably just add a task that does `nim js` for building the frontend
18:47:44FromGitter<Vindaar> yes, and then just `staticRead` the build `.js` from the server
18:47:57FromGitter<Vindaar> *built
18:48:08FromGitter<mrwonko> yeah, that will be the easy part

19:12:13FromGitter<mrwonko> in asynchttpserver.server, how do I define the listen address? It seems to use 0.0.0.0 by default (which gives me a firewall warning), I only want to listen on 127.0.0.1 instead.
19:13:02FromGitter<mrwonko> ah, serve seems to have an optional address argument
19:13:51FromGitter<mrwonko> yeah, that did the trick
19:14:20Araqxace, it's built into the compiler but there are docs for what it does
19:33:48miranwhen i use `asyncdispatch.runForever()` i get "Error: unhandled exception: No handles or timers registered in dispatcher. [ValueError]", what should i do?
19:45:19FromGitter<mrwonko> I'm using xmlgen for some simple html generation (is that the right tool for that, if I want to keep things simple and stick to the stdlib?), how can I prevent injections?
19:45:29FromGitter<mrwonko> sorry, it's called htmlgen
19:46:55FromGitter<mrwonko> xmldom.escapeXml sounds good
19:53:45FromGitter<mrwonko> I'm looking for the os.getEnv documentation. https://nim-lang.org/docs/os.html lists it in the exports, but clicking on it sends me to https://nim-lang.org/docs/ospaths.html#getEnv which is an anchor that does not exist
20:06:10Araqmiran, before you register any handler, runForever would be an endless loop
20:06:23Araqthe ValueError tells you you're using it wrong
20:06:45FromGitter<mrwonko> if I use strformat.& in my asynchttpserver callback, I get some kind of effect that makes the function signature not match, I think it's something about `{.locks: <unknown>.}`

20:49:32FromGitter<tim-st> I think the case together with async proc is the problem, the crash on gcc windows
20:49:58FromGitter<tim-st> 1) same crash
20:51:23FromGitter<mrwonko> Okay, I'll leave it at that for today, see you later.

23:19:54FromGitter<zacharycarter> This is slightly off topic - but has anyone done any 3d work with Godot? I'm not very much concerned with whether or not you've used Nim, but the complete lack of 3d examples beyond the platformer demo for Godot, leave me scratching my head in regards to how to do a lot of things with the engine
23:19:59FromGitter<zacharycarter> I'm thinking about just using Unity
23:20:15*chemist69 quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
23:23:53*btbytes joined #nim
23:24:25Araqzacharycarter: 3D is fine with Godot
23:24:39Araqno need to switch to Unity for this reason
23:24:59Araqbut well ... I only know so much, not any details
23:28:47FromGitter<zacharycarter> Araq: it's the capabilities, it's the lack of examples / learning resources
23:28:56*btbytes quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
23:28:57FromGitter<zacharycarter> I can look at a unity project and totally understand how to do something with the engine
23:29:06FromGitter<zacharycarter> but finding a comparable example for godot is not such a trivial task
23:29:55FromGitter<zacharycarter> also - godot does this funky node / component bullshit where the nodes themselves are components instead of individual components being added to nodes
23:30:11FromGitter<zacharycarter> so it's not like you can look at a unity project and immediately understand how to port it to godot
23:33:43Araq"fuky node / component bullshit" is pretty standard, Urho used something like this too.
23:33:54Araqand yeah, I dislike it too
23:34:28FromGitter<zacharycarter> well
23:34:45FromGitter<zacharycarter> with unity - you have a hierarchy of nodes and then each node you add components too
23:34:55FromGitter<zacharycarter> with godot, each node in of itself is a component it seems
23:35:11FromGitter<zacharycarter> so a node in unity can have ten different components doing different things
23:35:18FromGitter<zacharycarter> optimally - working together to achieve something
23:35:32FromGitter<zacharycarter> in godot - you have like, a 3d mesh node / component
23:35:37FromGitter<zacharycarter> it's just fundamentally different / weird
23:36:06FromGitter<zacharycarter> the whole scene graph thing is definitely overused - not every game needs it
23:36:14FromGitter<zacharycarter> but now engines bake it in
23:39:10FromGitter<zacharycarter> https://armory3d.org/manual/#/code/wasm - we might have a new option for game engines with Nim
23:39:27FromGitter<zacharycarter> although I have a feeling without a true LLVM backend - this won't work out so well
23:40:06Araqwe have a true LLVM backend, it's called nlvm
23:40:44FromGitter<zacharycarter> I know of it's existence - I just didn't know what it's status was
23:41:11FromGitter<zacharycarter> Araq: do you know if anyone has played with wasm yet via nlvm?
23:41:42FromGitter<zacharycarter> I guess it might be a better question for the maintainer
23:45:14AraqI know people played with it
