08:01:13user0Hello. Is there any `iterable` concept/type in the standard?
08:02:00user0If not what conditions must an iterable type satisfy?
08:02:27user0ah nvm it's x.high() and x.low() is x
08:02:39user0typeof*()
08:02:45user0disregard me
08:03:10*gmpreussner_ quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)

08:04:17*gmpreussner_ joined #nim
08:05:17user0name
08:06:16*zahary joined #nim
08:11:30PMunchuser0, for something to be iterable you generally need an "iterator"
08:11:50PMunchAlthough some general purpose ones exists
08:13:56PMunchAnd what are you trying to do with decltype?
08:14:01PMunchWhat is your goal
08:16:38user0I'm just making a table for unionfind
08:16:40user0https://pastebin.com/gS54vxtr
08:17:48user0Basically when creating a concept, I need to check decltype high x is decltype x
08:18:09user0decltype((high x )+ 1) is decltype(x)
08:18:17user0low*
08:20:38*zahary quit (Quit: Leaving.)
08:20:39FromGitter<alehander42> yeah
08:20:41FromGitter<alehander42> what you want is
08:21:07FromGitter<alehander42> ```type ⏎ A = concept a, type T ⏎ a.high is T ⏎ a.low is T ⏎ # ..``` [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5b20d3f232618e705eb64d85]
08:21:25FromGitter<alehander42> but for iterators a better way would be to directly showcase the usage
08:23:10user0^can you elaborate?
08:24:06FromGitter<alehander42> ```type ⏎ Iterable[T] = concept x ⏎ for value in x: ⏎ type(value) is T``` ⏎ ⏎ (I found it on github by @Yardanico , credits to him) [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5b20d4a6cf3b245b2cfa5f69]
08:25:17FromGitter<alehander42> this is probably also more correct, as one doesn't require 'high' or 'low' for type to be Iterable
08:25:53FromGitter<alehander42> what you do to make a type iterable is define ⏎ ⏎ ```iterator items(t: MyType): ElementType = ⏎ ... yield stuff``` [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5b20d51182b1b355c953b038]
08:26:58user0Okay, this is really nice. I just hope that it doesn't increase compile time by checking each of type(value) is T
08:28:11FromGitter<alehander42> no, it works on compile time, so it just checks that the concept "expressions" typecheck correctly
08:28:49FromGitter<alehander42> so the length of x doesn't matter, just the once-computed type of a value yielded by it
08:29:38user0Thank you. It was very informative.
08:33:14FromGitter<alehander42> no problem, feel free to ask more if things are ucnlear :D

09:19:23FromGitter<tim-st> Does someone has an idea how much work would it be to extend nimscript to support full pure nim like the python interpreter?
09:19:47FromGitter<tim-st> I'm wondering if this would be better than incremental compilation
09:21:15FromGitter<tim-st> (with pure nim I define all modules from "pure" directory also `os`)
09:23:10krux02tim-st: that is a bit complicated, especially the interface to C functions
09:23:57FromGitter<alehander42> I've thought about that, but not because compilation: it would make a powerful repl easier
09:24:05FromGitter<tim-st> My idea was to compile one single binary "nimStdLib.exe" that has all procs from all modules exported. Can nimscript call it?
09:24:28krux02you cannot call from an interpreted language into C functions, when you don't know the declaration of the C function at compile time of the interpreter
09:24:34FromGitter<Vindaar> @narimiran nice! upvoted :)
09:26:03FromGitter<tim-st> krux02: do you have a very small example?
09:26:10krux02nope
09:26:20FromGitter<alehander42> well, I am not sure how the nimscript vm works, but this should be technically possible
09:26:28FromGitter<tim-st> yes, I think so too
09:26:37krux02you neet do know the calling convention in binary to understand this
09:28:00krux02so before you argue on how this could or should be done, pleas learn about all the different calling conventions of all targets of the C language
09:28:21FromGitter<narimiran> @Vindaar thanks :)
09:28:41FromGitter<tim-st> krux02: I assumed the user compiles this file on his own target architecture
09:28:44krux02including ARM, x86, powerpc, etc
09:29:10krux02the user compiles what?
09:29:20FromGitter<tim-st> the "nimStdLib" binary
09:30:11krux02well you could make interfaces for all functions in stdlib
09:30:27krux02but that would not enable you at all to call into other libraries
09:32:20FromGitter<tim-st> hm, ok, have a feeling though, that it works^^
09:32:32FromGitter<tim-st> *could work
09:34:30krux02well you can always make pull requests that allow more stuff from the stdlib to work in the VM
09:35:31FromGitter<tim-st> I just dont know how this goes on the low level like `os`. But python developers got it working to have all functions in an interpreted language. in nim some of these dont work
09:35:46krux02I would like to vent out my frustration again: the range type as first argument for the primitive array is a bad idea
09:58:05FromGitter<tim-st> I now found nimScript has `exec(command: string)` so that would work exactly like I assumed
10:00:08FromGitter<tim-st> (at least in a worst case that could be implemented this way)
10:01:20FromGitter<mratsim> @miran I still have to say that your tutorial is awesome
10:01:53FromGitter<mratsim> The presentation is top notch
10:02:21FromGitter<mratsim> I think the font should be larger, at least 16px or 18px.
10:15:54FromGitter<narimiran> @mratsim thank you very much for your kind words!
10:17:06FromGitter<narimiran> i'm a big fan of large font sizes, but i was afraid i might overdo it, so i have settled for the way it is now. but if other people want larger font, i will be very happy to provide it :)

10:27:06FromGitter<ephja> was it changed to 16px?
10:27:14FromGitter<narimiran> @dom96 my font size is set as 1em, which should be 16px. i guess i should increase it to 1.125em (18px)
10:27:30FromGitter<ephja> I guess. that looks alright
10:27:39FromGitter<narimiran> what do others think about increasing it?
10:28:20Yardanicowell, there's a lot of empty space on the left and on the right of the text

10:28:33Yardanicoof course that's good for reading
10:28:45Yardanicobut for me it's fine, maybe make it .5 pixels bigger
10:28:52FromGitter<narimiran> @Yardanico we had that discussion on/about nim forum - don't maximize your browser!! :D
10:28:55FromGitter<ephja> it depends on the window width
10:29:08Yardanico@narimiran why not? :P
10:29:24FromGitter<narimiran> waste of space :)
10:30:42FromGitter<ephja> for text at least
10:31:16FromGitter<narimiran> when i have my browser maximized, it is a 3-column setup: on the left are bookmarks, in the center is the content, and on the right are the currently open tabs (this is in vivaldi, which allows for these kinds of customization)
10:31:39dom96narimiran: yeah, I would increase it a bit
10:31:52dom96btw guys, $50 off 50 stickers on Sticker Mule: https://ctt.ac/9a7Mb+
10:32:01dom96So you can get 50 Nim stickers for $19
10:32:30FromGitter<narimiran> so the content once again is not 1920px wide, but maybe something like 1400px
10:33:12FromGitter<narimiran> @dom96 thanks, will increase it once i get home. btw, now you have my blessing to tweet about it :)
10:35:39FromGitter<narimiran> btw, i have no experience with html/css, so my style.css is basically copy-pasted some template and i changed/deleted some values. if any of you has an idea how to make it better - let me know, and/or submit a PR

10:50:34*user0 joined #nim
10:57:51FromGitter<tim-st> I now took a deeper look at nimscript and it should be possible to support complete? "pure" directory without too much work, especially because much of `os` is already implemented in system/nimscript and most problems are missing `when nimvm` checks e.g. parts of `strutils` doesnt work with nimscript, when I have more time I try to fix some parts, I think an interpreter based on nimscript for pure nim only would be
10:57:51FromGitter... enough for most modules and would evaluate very quickly like python
11:06:50FromGitter<dandevelo> Is there any slurp/staticRead alternative that will read the file into an array instead of a string?
11:07:59FromGitter<mratsim> you have to slurp it and then parse the string with a macro which accepts a static[string] input
11:08:28FromGitter<mratsim> or a template, just make sure to assign the result to a const if using a template
11:08:43FromGitter<ephja> compile time proc?
11:09:08FromGitter<dandevelo> Yes, need this at compile time
11:09:22FromGitter<dandevelo> This is a binary file that I am reading
11:09:25FromGitter<ephja> but you need to generate an array of the correct size
11:09:38FromGitter<dandevelo> Yes, that's also a concern

11:11:57FromGitter<mratsim> unless you meant you wanted to put the file in an array of chars?
11:12:19FromGitter<mratsim> I’m pretty sure static string are arrays of char and not heap-allocated.
11:12:43FromGitter<dandevelo> @mratsim that's right, I need to read a file into a uint8 array at compile time
11:13:10FromGitter<dandevelo> create a const array out of that file
11:13:12FromGitter<mratsim> anyway macro getSize(x: static[string]): static[int] = x.len will give you the size at compile-time

11:43:08krux02I try to completely ignore the existence of `high` and `..`
11:43:13krux02makes my life easier
11:43:38krux02question does anybody know how I get the two bounds of a range type?
11:44:22FromGitter<ephja> low/high?
11:46:33krux02hmm, seems that I can't just ignore high entirely
11:47:11Vindaarkrux02: why do you want to ignore high?
11:48:59FromGitter<mratsim> you need YourEnum.low .. YourEnum.high for enum as well
11:54:25FromGitter<ephja> there should also be a `..<`proc that creates a slice now that '<foo' is deprecated
11:56:43FromGitter<ephja> might as well just create a patch
11:59:29FromGitter<ephja> "template `..<`(a, b: untyped): untyped" "a shortcut for 'a .. (when b is BackwardsIndex: succ(b) else: pred(b))'. " 🤔
12:03:35FromGitter<ephja> perpetual confusion
12:07:41FromGitter<dandevelo> @mratsim how would r be accessed outside the macro?
12:08:14FromGitter<mratsim> result = r
12:09:15FromGitter<dandevelo> wouldn't result be a nimnode?
12:10:16FromGitter<dandevelo> r is a seq but result is a nimnode if I got this right
12:10:33FromGitter<mratsim> that should work
12:11:32FromGitter<mratsim> you might get away with {.compileTime.} proc instead of a macro now that I thing about it.

12:45:34dom96@narimiran: your post is doing well :D
12:46:06FromGitter<oskca> well, it works
12:46:36FromGitter<oskca> but how? why is `TPoint` is ok, and `TScalar` needs `bycopy`?
12:49:52*dom96 needs some help here: https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/8qk6w4/fo_an_experimental_language_which_adds_generics/e0lb4jc/
12:50:10dom96People have their own random definitions of what a "transpiler" is
12:51:03dom96oskca: AFAIK the Nim compiler decides whether to pass by copy or not. So for FFI you need to tell it to use bycopy. For TPoint we are just getting lucky, nowadays c2nim adds {.bycopy.} to everything (or maybe it's some other pragma that has the same effect)
12:51:09dom96In any case, the opencv wrapper is pretty old
12:51:13dom96PRs welcome
12:51:22FromGitter<mratsim> don’t argue on that >_>
12:52:25FromGitter<oskca> @dom96 I get it, thank you very much 😃
12:53:10FromGitter<oskca> I'm doing an opencv3 wrapper, when i'm done, i'll send the PR 😄
12:53:24FromGitter<dandevelo> @mratsim can't seem to make it work
12:53:41dom96mratsim: why?
12:53:49FromGitter<mratsim> it’s a lost cause
12:54:00dom96It's not
12:55:28FromGitter<mratsim> @dandevelo the easiest would be for the rest of our processing pipe to also accept string as if they were seq\[uint8\] seq\[byte\]
12:56:07FromGitter<mratsim> @dom96 then you have to try to find an argument by authority. From a well known dev (like LLVM dev …)
12:56:51dom96Wikipedia seems like a good authority
12:58:38FromGitter<mratsim> apparently Cython compiles to C as well: http://cython.org/
12:59:13FromGitter<mratsim> Ocaml too: https://github.com/bvaugon/ocamlcc
12:59:34FromGitter<mratsim> lots of example here - https://github.com/dbohdan/compilers-targeting-c
12:59:45shashbotoskca: have you considered nimgen for the opencv wrapper?
12:59:46Yardanico@mratsim cython compiles to C but uses Python's C API a lot
13:00:21dom96Apparently people don't consider C low-level
13:00:23dom96oh well
13:00:28FromGitter<mratsim> well the only point to demonstrate is that C is at a lower level of abstraction than Nim, Python or Ocaml
13:01:48FromGitter<ephja> didn't our BDFL dislike the term "transpilation"? :p
13:02:13dom96yes
13:02:16dom96I dislike it too
13:02:34*Vladar quit (Quit: Leaving)
13:02:40dom96Tempted to write a blog post about this now
13:02:54FromGitter<mratsim> maybe for once you’ll get first place of HN
13:03:05dom96lol yep
13:03:16FromGitter<oskca> @shashbot i'll give it a try, but currently I'm doing it using c2nim
13:03:40FromGitter<mratsim> just give a shout out to all those other langs so that they get ready for a nice flame war
13:04:39FromGitter<alehander42> yeah, this different abstraction level thing is very subjective
13:04:44*noonien joined #nim
13:04:50FromGitter<ephja> trying not to ping the BDFL too much, but maybe he has enabled pings for "BDFL" 😝
13:04:54FromGitter<narimiran> @kaushalmodi ok, will increase it. btw, have you seen that `case` is now unindented? :)
13:05:04FromGitter<narimiran> @oskca thank you!
13:05:30FromGitter<alehander42> e.g. if you compile C to Nim, what would that be according to the transpiler-people ? :D
13:05:56FromGitter<mratsim> conversion
13:06:35FromGitter<ephja> inverted transpilation!
13:07:09FromGitter<mratsim> computer + translation = compilation?
13:08:49shashbotoskca: nimgen simply automates c2nim, generates wrappers on the fly based on a config file
13:08:51FromGitter<alehander42> makes sense :D

13:09:04*xkapastel quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
13:09:31FromGitter<mratsim> apparently it comes from French and Latin (compilare) that means pillage/plunder.
13:09:38FromGitter<alehander42> hah, weird
13:10:19FromGitter<mratsim> As a French, compilation means collection for me (like “une compilation de documents” for a curated collection of documents)
13:10:47FromGitter<kaushalmodi> @narimiran Yes, no one might have, but I did notice that change in case statements :) Yay for consistency/adherence with the style in Nim source/manual! 👍
13:10:57FromGitter<alehander42> yeah, we kinda have that in bulgarian too, e.g. compilation of musical hits
13:11:28FromGitter<mratsim> oh yeah we use “compilation de CDs” for music collections as well
13:11:34*DarkArctic__ quit (Quit: Leaving)

13:11:48*DarkArctic joined #nim
13:12:49Araqthe transpiler people cannot explain why C is "compiled". after all, according to "common wisdom" (which is utter nonsense) C is close to assembler
13:12:51FromGitter<alehander42> yeah I wonder if one day we'll have CD stores with people browsing through very old school discs for their hipster cd players
13:14:12FromGitter<alehander42> on the other hand would you say that python, ruby etc are compiled? I would agree with such a classification
13:14:40Araqbut you never hear them say "C is transpiled to assembler" and so they don't believe their own fairy tales about different levels of abstractions
13:15:08AraqPython and Ruby are interpreted.
13:15:43FromGitter<alehander42> well, they are compiled and their bytecode is interpreted
13:15:53FromGitter<alehander42> hypothetically one could interpret the C code of Nim too
13:16:14FromGitter<alehander42> (which reminds me, cling is cooool)
13:16:41FromGitter<mratsim> anyway, I find arguing semantics a complete waste of time
13:18:29FromGitter<dandevelo> Sorry to interrupt the transpiled discussion. Should I open an issue for this bug? https://gist.github.com/dandevelo/7a742d06c74c46ba67a141db1905d990
13:19:18FromGitter<data-man> Is LuaJIT a transpiler? :)
13:19:28elroodthe distinction is pretty easy, actually. transpilation is commonly used to describe the process of transformation from one human-written language into another. compilation is from one language you'd write manually to machine-code
13:19:55Araqassembler is a human-written language.
13:20:12Araqdandevelop: yeah, report it
13:20:28elroodof course that's not a clear-cut distinction, and with cpus running more of a vm than directly executing machine-code it gets watered down even more
13:20:47elroodbut if you want to see the difference, you can. if you prefer to not see it, you can do that too
13:21:12Araqit's a deeply problematic distinction, GCC produces assembler as text files, at least it used to do that for years
13:21:32FromGitter<mratsim> wow: this feels like the reactions that could happen after “Gotos considered harmful” - https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/8qk6w4/fo_an_experimental_language_which_adds_generics/e0kv6p2/
13:21:44elroodnim transpiles to a language which needs a completely independent toolchain and which is widely used in programming independently. thus transpiler
13:21:48Araqthen you can change it so that it directly produces the machine code
13:22:25elroodit's fine if you want to dislike the distinction and call nim compiled. nobody will lynch you for that. but people beg to differ and have other opinions
13:22:31Araqnow what? Was C transpiled and then it got compiled? dubious.
13:23:08elroodif you insist, c is transpiled to assembly and then compiled, but there the point starts to become moot
13:23:38Araqis Nim's LLVM backend enough to make Nim a "compiled" language?
13:24:13elroodif you implement eg. a llvm-based to first generate llvm-ir, does it compile or transpile? you can lose yourself in that thought
13:24:26FromGitter<mratsim> LLVM has more features than C so LLVM is a higher-level language than C (think Tail Call Optimization) so C Uppile to LLVM IR

13:27:16*Vladar joined #nim
13:28:26FromGitter<ephja> how do you quantify the feature amount?
13:28:46FromGitter<mratsim> you don’t, that’s completely subjective
13:29:38FromGitter<mratsim> Funnily I posted that just 3 hours ago in #nim-offtopic: http://wiki.c2.com/?BlubParadox ⏎ ⏎ > As long as our hypothetical Blub programmer is looking down the power continuum, he knows he's looking down. Languages less powerful than Blub are obviously less powerful, because they're missing some feature he's used to. But when our hypothetical Blub programmer looks in the other direction, up the power continuum, he
13:29:38FromGitter... doesn't realize he's looking up. What he sees are merely weird languages. He probably considers them about equivalent in power to Blub, but with all this other hairy stuff thrown in as well.

13:30:32dom96Araq: Apparently C is actually high-level
13:30:51dom96btw compilation of hits is also an English thing
13:30:51FromGitter<mratsim> high-level == not machine code
13:31:24elroodyou know languages can be high-level and low-level at the same time? abstractions are not orthogonal to providing access to hardware features
13:31:25dom96elrood: That's not how it is defined on Wikipedia
13:31:45elroodof course it isn't, ask three people and you'll get five definitions
13:32:21elroodchoose your own one of them and live happily ever after. it's not as if this was an argument with a solution or a correct or incorrect answer
13:32:23shashbotWikipedia makes it even more fun - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Source-to-source_compiler
13:32:26shashbotSo a transpiler is a compiler
13:32:33user0I think having namespaces would be nice
13:32:45dom96mratsim: that's hilarious lol
13:33:10FromGitter<ephja> not even 2 definitions per person?
13:33:13FromGitter<mratsim> Blub or not machine code?
13:33:19FromGitter<ephja> not too bad then
13:33:21dom96mratsim: Blub
13:33:26FromGitter<mratsim> =)
13:33:30dom96We now need a programming language called Blub
13:33:45dom96for ultimate lolz
13:35:29FromGitter<mratsim> it can be a Nim DSL ;)

15:00:41federico3elrood: on which device? Usually it's a matter of using the right C compiler, disabling GC, adding the stacktrace shim...
15:01:14Yardanicodom96, ugh, now there's a link to discord from nim-basics tutorial
15:01:28YardanicoI really need to think how to solve this muli-line problem
15:01:37Yardanicobut I can't find a bridge which supports paste services
15:01:52miranYardanico: yeah, somebody has sent a PR. shouldn't i merge it?
15:02:07Yardanicomiran, it's okay
15:02:10miranbtw, font-size is now increased, as per the public opinion
15:12:56FromGitter<tim-st> I see nimscript is limited to iterations ("Error: interpretation requires too many iterations") can I increase the limit?
15:13:15Araqtim-st: if you use nimscript via the API, yes.
15:13:24Araqif you use it in the compiler, no.
15:13:33Araqthe compiler needs protection against endless loops
15:13:49Araqand making this a compiler switch would produce language dialects.
15:14:37FromGitter<tim-st> I use manually via nim e file.nims
15:22:25Araqoh that could be special cased to allow infinite loops indeed.
15:23:40FromGitter<tim-st> ok, I'm interested in extending this to support full pure nim, but have to read a bit into it to get `times` and network supported
15:24:02Araqmany tried ... :P
15:24:30FromGitter<tim-st> really? is there no way? how do python guys did this?
15:24:53FromGitter<tim-st> maybe even use javascript or something as a workaround
15:24:59Araqmisleading question.
15:25:12FromGitter<brentp> is there documentation on (new?) nimscript api? I assume this is to facilitate embedding nimscript?
15:25:19AraqPython's VM wasn't designed to run Python's AST to AST transformations at compiletime
15:25:23FromGitter<hoangphuoc25> I'm trying to use nim to interact with postgresql. From what i found db_postgres doesn't implement connection pool at all. Is there anyway to work around this?
15:25:30AraqNim's VM was.
15:25:46shashlick@brentp: https://nim-lang.org/docs/nimscript.html, https://nim-lang.org/docs/nims.html
15:25:49Araqyou can bold the FFI support onto Nim's VM, there is code for that
15:25:51FromGitter<tim-st> I have the guess that nimscript would skip long compile times, that's what I need
15:26:31shashlick@tim-st: i've been tracking this somewhat - https://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/issues/7383
15:26:44FromGitter<brentp> @shashlick, that doesn't look like an api.
15:27:43FromGitter<tim-st> @ shashlick thanks I saw it but some tests are wrong I think, e.g. `math` doesnt work in nimscript
15:28:20FromGitter<tim-st> oh, these are other test cases
15:28:23FromGitter<tim-st> will read this^^
15:28:29shashlickmath mostly works, there's a few calls that don't
15:28:52FromGitter<tim-st> all c calls dont work, there a quite a few
15:29:57*clyybber quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
15:30:05FromGitter<tim-st> I think the few procs in system.nim could easily be made quivalent using slower workarounds then e.g. `streams` and others and additionally all libs based on `streams` would work

15:32:04FromGitter<tim-st> it's a pitty that I cant test the kostya benchmark in ninmscript because of iteration limitation, otherwise I had a first guess on execution time
15:32:16mirandom96, Araq: should i add my beginners' tutorial to the nim-lang.org?
15:32:55FromGitter<mratsim> @tim-st the kostya bench are broken anyway >_>.
15:33:17FromGitter<tim-st> no, matmul works, but not in nimscript
15:33:29Yardanicodom96, I'll probably make a temporary limit to FromDiscord to handle only messages up to 500 chars and replace newlines by ⏎
15:33:41YardanicoAnd I'll create a discord-irc bridge in nim (it's not that hard because discord has web hooks)
15:33:47FromGitter<mratsim> well matmul benchmark allows Julia to use Fortran
15:33:47shashlick@tim-st: https://gist.github.com/genotrance/97aa4f2417165caa35779a9653b27111
15:34:19shashlickI was putting together test cases for all math functions in nimscript and found a few that didn't work
15:35:02FromGitter<mratsim> @tim-st this is as fast as Julia or D Mir GLAS in pure Nim - https://github.com/mratsim/Arraymancer/blob/master/benchmarks/integer_matmul.nim
15:35:03shashlickyardanico: why not make some PRs in matterbridge instead
15:35:11Yardanicoshashlick, I don't know Go
15:35:27shashlickif you know Nim, Go is easy
15:35:36FromGitter<tim-st> shashlick: nice, looks good, I think nimscript can be a big player for nim, compile times is the biggest downside of nim
15:36:01Yardanico@tim-st nim compile-times are still higher than a lot of other compiled-to-native languages
15:36:08FromGitter<mratsim> the matmul benchmark should use integers and not double to avoid library defaulting to BLAS.
15:36:09Yardanicoand they will get even better with incremental compilation
15:36:43FromGitter<tim-st> @mratsim ok thanks, I meant to get first guess on nimscript vs python and if work on nimscript would be sufficient because of this
15:37:13Yardanicooh look at that, we already have a discord library for nim!
15:37:13Yardanicohttps://github.com/Krognol/discordnim
15:37:26shashlick@tim-st: the lines commented out in test.nims are the procs that don't work
15:39:10FromGitter<tim-st> @ yardanico: incremental compilation is good, but I still think interpretion would be faster for testing your code, because if you change a small thing in your code it doesnt get patched but needs recompilation, unless the incremental compilation is very clever, more than one part of the code will be recompiled, and thus it will consume more time than interpretion from my first guess
15:39:24mirannow i see that somebody posted a link to the tutorial two hours ago on HN!
15:39:28FromGitter<tim-st> @ shashlick: ok, thanks!
15:39:51miranand it is on the 2nd place!? OMG WTF

15:47:24FromGitter<tim-st> @ Yardanico: maybe with an early version with incremental comp. support we could test some examples that work for inc. comp. and nimscript and then regard the pros and cons (for small code base, big codebase, different operation systems, compilers, etc); tbh I'm not sure which one is better, at least both are better than having it not ;)

15:56:07shashlickwhere does it say: "the compiler is in development and some important features are still missing" in our FAQ?
15:57:13Araqthe FAQ used to say that
15:57:20Araqno idea if it still does
15:57:30m712grep
15:57:37Yardanicodom96, it seems that I already can use discordnim for our bridge (it's trivial to implement paste services and things like that), but I don't know how stable it is
15:57:49dom96Yardanico: Ship it :D
15:57:59m712also, nim.vim doesn't really like it if you use threading code; is there a place i can set the compiler flags?
15:58:13shashlickhow come the faq isn't linked from any page? or am i missing it
15:58:16m712it yells about system.Channel and system.Thread not existing
15:58:33Yardanicom712, yes, create nim.cfg in your project's folder
15:58:39Yardanicoor in source folder (if you have that)
15:58:57Yardanicoand put "--threads:on" in there
15:59:32shashlickaraq: why do we say that important features are missing? you can build perfectly capable apps. is that really something a user needs to see? sounds like a Nim language designer opinion to me
16:00:09Araqremove it from the FAQ.
16:00:17Araqthis was written when Nim lacked closures.

17:45:10elroodfederico3, only just caught your reply. any device really. i'd bet nim and embedded system developers would appreciate a writeup about your experiences
17:45:11dom96yep
17:45:16FromGitter<kaushalmodi> would be nice to have an `update` switch though so that users looking for it know that it exists
17:45:30FromGitter<kaushalmodi> internally it can alias to install
17:45:36miran+1
17:46:24FromGitter<kaushalmodi> And the `install` help should also be updated..
17:46:36FromGitter<kaushalmodi> "Installs a list of packages." -> "Installs/updates a list of packages."

19:45:21FromGitter<mratsim> declared is to check that a variable exist
19:45:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> that part I understood.. defined gets confusing

19:45:51FromGitter<kaushalmodi> ah!
19:46:13FromGitter<mratsim> now the part I don’t understand is that within a function sometimes you have to use declared but you can’t use defined *shrugs*

21:06:09FromGitter<dandevelo> @mratsim so it is not possible today, only a feature request, right?
21:07:03FromGitter<dandevelo> If the C file contains this: const unsigned char resources[] = { ⏎ 0x53,0x41,0x72,0x00,0xcd,0x01,0x00,0x00 } how would this be imported as a Nim var?

21:08:21*find0x90_ quit (Quit: find0x90_)
21:08:37FromGitter<mratsim> var resources: array[8, cuchar] {.importc.} I think?
21:09:00FromGitter<mratsim> let me try
21:14:36FromDiscord<awr> does the "D" in D stand for "Disadvantages" /s
21:15:06FromGitter<mratsim> @dandevelo: ⏎ ⏎ ```code paste, see link``` [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5b21895a37a2df7bed3a7fa0]
21:15:28FromGitter<mratsim> importc_const.c is: ⏎ `const unsigned char resources[] = {0x53,0x41,0x72,0x00,0xcd,0x01,0x00,0x00};`
21:16:57FromGitter<mratsim> @awr C evolved from the B language, D evolved from the C language
21:20:01*miran quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
21:20:33FromGitter<zetashift> D is a nice language, I find Nim nicer
21:20:52FromGitter<zetashift> and I still am baffled how Go got so popular
21:20:54FromGitter<dandevelo> @mratsim thanks! that worked! The only thing that needs to be known here in advance is the size of the array
21:21:27FromDiscord<awr> Go intended to attract C++ people but instead attracted ruby people
21:21:54FromGitter<mratsim> @zetashift: money (as in marketing) + Google Clout (and not Google Cloud :D)
21:24:06FromGitter<dandevelo> @zetashift I can tell you why Go was attractive for me: for many years it was the only high level language that would let me build a cross-platform app as a single binary. Coming from a C/C++ background, Go felt so productive when writing web apps that don't need any runtime or other dependencies to be installed in order to run on a server
21:24:38shashlickGo amazes me too, it has so many interesting libs that have come up quite quickly
21:24:52FromDiscord<awr> i think I learned about Nim from the D forum
21:25:00shashlickthe syntax doesn't bother me since it is quite C like but i remember running into limitations all the time
21:25:23FromGitter<mratsim> When I look at Go and Javascript I am under impression that 90% of the devs are doing web stuff
21:26:38shashlicki built one tool in go and then immediately jumped ship to Nim when I discovered it, much more Pythonic which I prefer and of course much much more expressive
21:27:08FromGitter<dandevelo> And Go also has a great eco-system. Just an example: if you want to bundle all your html/css/imgs/js with the Go binary, there are plenty of options to do that easily: https://tech.townsourced.com/post/embedding-static-files-in-go/
21:27:15FromDiscord<awr> my first impressions of Nim were probably "ew, pythonic syntax" but then i got used to it
21:27:31FromGitter<dandevelo> It is still hard to do the same with Nim at this time as the ecosystem is not that developed
21:27:51FromGitter<mratsim> in Rust*
21:28:41shashlickwell, that's the thing, if you like Ruby, you will like Crystal, i didn't like ruby as much as I did Python, so Nim is much more appealing from that point of view
21:28:55shashlickand I never liked C++, Java, too verbose so I correspondingly don't like Rust
21:29:10shashlickif i'm not being forced, I will pick the language that *feels* comfortable
21:29:52FromDiscord<awr> you do C/C++ for such a long time, you start thinking its syntax is actually sensible and totally not verbose
21:30:08shashlick@dandevelo: the thing is that the C ecosystem is huge so Nim's not really that limited, it's why i've spent as much time as I have with nimgen wrappers
21:31:15shashlickand nim/nimble/c2nim makes it so easy
21:31:59FromGitter<mratsim> in the mean time in /r:/programming, java releases underwhelming features: https://able.bio/DavidLandup/new-features-in-java-10--21tl3ie ⏎ ⏎ 1) Local-variable type inference ⏎ 2) Change in Java garbage collecting ⏎ 3) Root Certifications ... [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5b218d4e82b1b355c955b19c]
21:32:06FromGitter<dandevelo> @shashlick: true, but there are still some rough edges for now: e.g: you can't import a C const into a Nim const. And when it comes to existing libraries Go still has an advantage today, you can find pretty much a library for anything you want today and that it is still not the case with Nim. It will take some time but it will get there.
21:32:32FromDiscord<awr> @dandevelo "It’s a command line application that you pass a directory path to and it generates a .go file with your assets embedded in it."
21:32:38FromGitter<mratsim> you can’t find a neural network library in Go, but there is one in Nim :D
21:32:42FromDiscord<awr> i think i'll take `staticRead()` instead...
21:32:58FromGitter<dandevelo> @awr try doing staticRead for a directory structure
21:33:54FromGitter<dandevelo> @mratsim luckily the Nim community has people like you so we can have that :D Thank you for your work!
21:34:09shashlickbut I disagree with that logic - i'd rather use an established C library and wrap it and get my work done than write whole new libs for my language
21:34:38shashlickno doubt there's many cool Go libs but there's tons more C code to leverage
21:34:52FromGitter<dandevelo> @shashlick - that's what I am saying for Go - you don't need to write new libs - they exist already
21:35:59shashlicksomeone did and I believe that was a waste of time if a corresponding C lib already existed
21:36:21FromGitter<dandevelo> That *if* is essential there :)
21:36:23shashlickcause you have to count all the effort in dev, test, maintenance, support, quality
21:36:50FromGitter<mratsim> Many C libraries are dead though
21:36:50shashlickno doubt and part of the reason is that few people used C to build web apps, so you see some good stuff there
21:37:08FromDiscord<awr> how do you work with directory structures for this go thing
21:37:26FromGitter<dandevelo> Go is an easier language to pick than C so you will find a lot more people contributing to Go projects than C projects
21:37:42shashlickanyway, long story short, I prefer leverage and reuse and Nim has a huge ecosystem to easily leverage
21:38:00shashlicki'd like to see more fixes/improvements in c2nim to handle C++ code
21:38:10FromDiscord<awr> does it just create an object or something with other objects representing folders and byte arrays representing files
21:38:10shashlickthen we have even more libs to pick
21:38:12FromGitter<mratsim> for example, when looking for a fast big int library at Status we first settled on ttmath - https://github.com/status-im/nim-ttmath, then after usage we had too many issues (mostly with C++ “non-trivial” destructors)
21:38:48FromGitter<mratsim> and after checking a bit more, I saw absolutely no test in the lib apart from “add” even though it’s recommended everywhere.
21:39:17FromGitter<mratsim> and it’s been there for more than 5 years.
21:39:46FromGitter<Vindaar> @dandevelo @mratsim I've been poking the VM in the last hour to figure out why the `quote do` produces `nkLitInt` instead of respecting the type of the sequence. By now at least I understand enough to inject the correct kind. But in a super hacky way :P
21:40:22FromDiscord<awr> or implement it as a tree or w/e
21:40:58FromGitter<dandevelo> @Vindaar sounds good!
21:41:01shashlicki'd work on improving c2nim but don't think I have the expertise
21:41:11FromGitter<zetashift> @dandevelo Oh Go has a lot of upsides, but for some projects I don't think it's the right fit yet people seem to come up with glorious ways to do it anyway because it's so easy to work with I guess
21:41:27FromGitter<mratsim> expertise in Nim is acquired. A year ago I knew nothing ...
21:41:32shashlickbut ya, there will be some dead libs in C world for sure
21:42:05shashlickit's a question of mindset, i don't do well in the world of compilers and parsers and too lazy to learn now
21:42:14FromGitter<dandevelo> @zetashift I like Go but I really want to replace it with Nim in the future for all my apps. Can't do that now but I am looking forward to the day I will be able to
21:42:30FromGitter<mratsim> I think Go will have troubles to just get a Tensor library working. The lack of generics is just killing it for any kind of numerical computing
21:42:50FromGitter<dandevelo> Yep, generics is a big win for Nim when compared to Go
21:43:20FromGitter<zetashift> isn't one of Go's biggest drawback except generics that it has a really iffy C ffi?
21:44:01FromGitter<mratsim> there is overhead but as far as I know it deos the job.
21:44:05FromGitter<mratsim> does*
21:44:36FromGitter<zetashift> probably if you want Nim to occupy the Go-space, you'd want to improve the "cloud" ecosystem
21:44:49FromGitter<dandevelo> true that
21:45:30*find0x90 joined #nim
21:45:31FromGitter<dandevelo> If Nim can dominate these: https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/ more people will start paying attention
21:46:42FromGitter<mratsim> I believe in dom96 and 2vg
21:47:01FromGitter<mratsim> Nim really has a community of performance magicians
21:47:17shashlickwe need a lib that can generate code out of web APIs
21:47:35shashlickopenapi / swagger
21:48:09shashlickwill bring a lot of the web into the nim ecosystem
21:49:36FromGitter<dandevelo> Yes, things like aws sdk for nim would definitely attract more people to the language
21:50:36shashlickOne other interesting idea is to wrap Go
21:50:38*find0x90 quit (Quit: find0x90)
21:50:48FromDiscord<treeform> aws and gcloud sdk are needed
21:51:31FromDiscord<treeform> i kind of use gcloud sdk in nim through process open shell calls.
21:54:04dom96:D
21:58:01FromGitter<dandevelo> For myself, I am trying to learn more about Nim (if it wasn't obvious yet from my questions here :P) so that I can also contribute to the ecosystem. I admire all people releasing libraries that make it easier to use Nim for various scenarios. At the same time I believe I should not wait only for others to improve the ecosystem, I should also put in the work myself.

22:03:09FromGitter<mratsim> Beware, there is no facility to help you away from it :P
22:06:02shashlick@dandevelo: it's funny you say that, cause I've spent almost two decades coding and haven't had to make a single library since most of the stuff I needed already existed. That's been different with Nim, have found some way to be useful beyond my own projects, working on a greater goal than my own.
22:07:51shashlickfrankly, it's annoying when I go on a tangent due to some Nim issue or limitation and have to get my hands dirty or whatever, but extremely rewarding and a great experience working with such talented people
22:08:22FromGitter<mratsim> haha ^ exactly how I felt when dealing with static
22:09:17FromGitter<Vindaar> @dandevelo I'm still pretty new to Nim's ecosystem, too. Before that I hadn't released any libraries etc. either. And at the beginning I was sort of scared of releasing a library with "ugly code". But I came to realize that's stupid. Yeah, my code may not be perfect, but hey, at least library xy exists now! :)
22:09:34FromGitter<dandevelo> @Vindaar that's the spirit!
22:09:59FromGitter<Vindaar> and the bonus: with that attitude learning is a lot quicker :D
22:10:11FromGitter<dandevelo> 100% agree
22:17:04shashlickAll hail the great Nim for giving us this little playground to play in
22:17:52FromGitter<mratsim> wow, Nim had +30 stars today
