0:40 elarson: I was trying to give core.async a try and I get this error: reduce already refers to: #'clojure.core.async/reduce in namespace

0:40 yedi: does anyone know why the macro go isn't being recognized in cljs? (https://gist.github.com/yedi/42dad0640f57327b16ea)

0:41 whenever i uncomment that section, i get a cannot read property 'call' of undefined at line 22

0:41 go-loop seems to work fine however

0:42 nvm, looks like the error is within the go block and debugging it is just janky

0:55 J_Arcane: which JDK should I be running for Clojure on windows?

1:07 maxthoursie: elarson: there's a reduce function in core.async, which is also in core, if you import both, you'll get a clash

1:07 joshuafcole_: Is destructuring capable of taking a map and destructuring it into a vec with keys in the order given?

1:08 e.g. I'd want something like (bogus synax)

1:09 (let [[:keys [x y]] point]) ; -> [(:x point) (:y point)]

1:09 maxthoursie: elarson: I would recommend [:require [core.async :as async]] or similar

1:11 joshuafcole_: I guess I'm probably just trying to be too clever about it. There isnt' really a good way to get a symbol in there to name the list anyway.

1:12 maxthoursie: joshuafcole_: (let [{:keys [x y]} point] [x y]) ?

1:13 J_Arcane: dont think it matters much, what is your choices?

1:14 J_Arcane: I've used the latest JDK7

1:15 joshuafcole_: maxthoursie: yeah, I think that's the closest I can get. Thanks!

1:17 dorkmafia: let's say i created a library project for myself to use lein new mylib how do i reference mylib in another project? :)

1:17 maxthoursie: joshuafcole_: or something like ((juxt :x :y) point)

1:17 joshuafcole_: that's not destructing anymore though

1:19 J_Arcane: maxthoursie

1:19 dorkmafia: symlinks cool

1:19 J_Arcane: Well, it seems that I'm getting a pile of errors when I run lein repl on jdk 8, so I'm gonna try 7.

1:20 maxthoursie: J_Arcane: oh, that's surprising, but I haven't tried it

1:20 dorkmafia: or something like https://github.com/kumarshantanu/lein-localrepo maybe

1:21 dorkmafia: maxthoursie: i was going to try with the checkouts dir what should i symlink in there? and then what do i put in my lein project dependencies?

1:23 maxthoursie: dorkmafia: sorry, I don't know, havn't run into it yet, but I suspect I will

1:24 dorkmafia: :(

1:27 J_Arcane: huh, no, same page full of errors on 1.7 too. :P

1:30 Is this at all normal? http://pastebin.com/hTrThtys

1:34 Huh. Apparently a known issue: https://github.com/technomancy/leiningen/issues/1625

1:54 justin_smith: J_Arcane: is this inside a project directory?

1:54 joshuafcole: I'm looking to construct a 2 dimensional grid of values as a vec of vecs. The obvious way I can think of to do so is with nested maps (one per dimension). I feel like there's probably a cleaner way to do it (perhaps doseq?) that doesn't require the explicit nesting, but I can't think of what it would be

1:54 J_Arcane: Nay. Just running the bare repl from anywhere. I forget if I tried it in a project.

1:55 2.4.2 works fine from anywhere though, so I'm mollified.

1:55 joshuafcole: I know doseq can provide the values from N ranges the way I'd like it to, but I'm not sure how I'd neatly compose the actual result from it, since it's intended for side effects

1:55 And actually, come to think of it, it doesn't really need to be structured as a vec of vecs, it just needs to be addressable by coord

1:55 justin_smith: joshuafcole: for is like a lazy doseq that returns all the results

1:56 joshuafcole: ah derp, I didn't even think of that. Laziness should be fine in this case, since I'm going to be consuming the values directly.

1:56 Cheers

2:03 J_Arcane: Hrm. My Light Table docs functions don't seem to be working.

2:05 seancorfield: J_Arcane can you be a bit more specific?

2:05 Do you mean showing docs for LT, or for a specific symbol?

2:10 J_Arcane: seancorfield: the language docs. Neither in-line with the right click or the search seem to do anything at all.

2:14 OK, it seems it was missing some deps that the koan-runner was preventing it from acquiring, but now in attempting it I get a stream of console errors.

2:14 search works now, just not the right-clock option.

3:48 sveri: Hi, using stuarts tools.namespace is there a way to keep some namespaces from being refreshed when calling (refresh)?

5:05 ARM9: any idea why lein repl goes bonkers?

5:06 hyPiRion: ARM9: it's the dreaded technomancy/leiningen#1625

5:06 lazybot: nREPL barfing in non-project REPLs -- https://github.com/technomancy/leiningen/issues/1625 is open

5:06 ARM9: NoSuchMethodError clojure.tools.nrepl.StdOutBuffer.length() and then the classic wall of at namespace.xyz java errors

5:06 I'll have a look

5:06 hyPiRion: it's solved on master, we're working on a new release coming in a few days

5:06 in the meantime you can do `lein downgrade 2.4.2`

5:07 ARM9: cheers

5:20 clgv: hyPiRion: is there a short explanation why that happened all of a sudden with the last release?

5:21 hyPiRion: clgv: We still don't know really. https://github.com/technomancy/leiningen/issues/1629

5:21 Or at least I don't know

5:21 Aether magic

5:22 clgv: ok. not so "repeatable" it seems ;)

5:23 hyPiRion: oh, it's repeatable

5:23 But bumping version numbers somehow solved the issue

5:23 clgv: well I meant the dependency resolution which seems to differ as described in the ticket

5:24 but must be pretty weird since it did not seem to occur in other projects

5:24 hyPiRion: ~mystery

5:24 clojurebot: mystery is http://p.hagelb.org/mystery.gif

5:25 clgv: :P

5:25 ddellacosta: that is such a cute image

5:25 the bug itself is not cute

5:26 hyPiRion: It's not a funny bug, trust me

5:26 Esp. because Phil didn't manage to reproduce it at first

5:34 lvh: How do I use a leiningen checkout for a java dependency?

5:34 leiningen ignores it because there's no project.clj

5:37 wombawomba: I'm passing a really convoluted predicate (containing macros) to a macro. I would like to break this up into parts, e.g. turn (mymacro (or (= :something 2) (= :something-else 3))) into something like (mymacro (or something-equals-2 something-else-equals-3)). How would I do this?

5:43 dm3: wombawomba: what did you try already?

5:48 wombawomba: dm3: er, I tried (def some-equals-2 '(= :something 2)) and (defmacro some-equals-2 [] (= :something 2))

5:48 I don't really have any idea what I'm doing though

5:49 dm3: that's the problem :)

5:49 try macroexpanding the inner macros

5:49 I would strongly advice coming up with the function-based API first and then wrapping into macros

6:03 wombawomba: Hmm, so there's no easy way to just transplant (= :something 2) out of the predicate and just have the compiler paste it back in regardless of its contents? In (pseudo-)C I would just #define some-equals-2 (= :something 2).

6:03 I figure I should be able to do something similar

6:13 clgv: lvh: do you plan to compile the java project yourself?

6:15 lvh: clgv: Not manually, no. I contributed a feature to an upstream Java project. I want to test that my Clojure code works with it. The Java project has not yet done a release, and would like me to manually confirm that the code does what I think (because they made some additional changes) before activating the release machinery.

6:15 So maybe what I want to say is "pretend that you got this thing off of maven even though you're atually getting it off of github"

6:16 clgv: lvh: so you temporarily need to build it until you are sure it works and it ends up in an official release?

6:16 lvh: is it maven based?

6:17 lvh: clgv: Correct.

6:17 clgv: Yes. At least, it has a pom.xml. I think that means it's Maven-based?

6:18 clgv: lvh: if so, just dont use it as checkout - change the version number to something that marks it as you temporary snapshot and then build and install locally it via maven. you can then use it as a normal dependency in your clojure project

6:18 piranha: is there a way to check that data.json/read-str didn't read the whole string?

6:19 clgv: lvh: update after changes are only one maven commandline execution

6:19 lvh: clgv: Wait, to be clear: the *upstream Java thing* is Maven based. I'm just using lein.

6:19 piranha: ,(clojure.data.json/read-str "1[]")

6:20 clojurebot: #<ClassNotFoundException java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: clojure.data.json>

6:20 piranha: eh

6:20 anyway, it reads 1 from there and I would love to have exception

6:20 clgv: lvh: yeah, what I was saying is build your fork of the java project via maven (and install it locally) then get it in your clojure project as normal dependency

6:20 lvh: aha

6:22 clgv: lvh: probably "mvn package && mvn install" is what you need

6:23 lvh: clgv: Does "normal dependency" there mean I have to upload it to clojars/central?

6:23 clgv: lvh: depending on the pom.xml "mvn install" might suffice - I am no maven expert ;)

6:23 lvh: I'll try. Thanks :)

6:23 clgv: lvh: no you dont. it is locally installed on the maven folden on your current machine

6:23 lvh: Oh, cool.

6:31 clgv: lvh: probably someone should summarize those use cases in a blogpost or similar ^^

6:52 CookedGryphon: gah, does anyone else use prelude?

6:52 and is cider utterly borked for you?

7:03 noncom|2: clgv: ping

7:04 clgv: noncom|2: pong

7:04 noncom|2: CookedGryphon: i am learning emacs, so prelude is my current main setup.. cider kinda works :) but it si not included with prelude..

7:04 clgv: ah vectors in 1.7 will implement IReduce :D

7:04 CookedGryphon: noncom|2: it is if you enable the clojure module isn't it?

7:05 noncom|2: clgv: hi! did you try to use the latest ccw with java 8 + eclipse luna ? i get some stalls with lein->update deps in eclipse..

7:05 clgv: clgv: I switched back to kepler because of weird multiwindow issues with luna

7:06 noncom|2: what do you mean by "getting some stalls"?

7:06 noncom|2: clgv: well, eclipse just hangs when i call Leiningen->Update dependencies ..

7:06 and never comes back

7:06 clgv: noncom|2: my workspace shows errors that dependencies could not be retrieved which "lein deps" does not report

7:07 noncom|2: clgv: is it in luna or kepler ?

7:07 clgv: luckily it does not prevent a repl to start. this is in kepler with latest ccw

7:07 noncom|2: CookedGryphon: hmmm right.. still, working within emacs seems a bit complicated to me, i am in the process of learning..

7:09 clgv: well, kepler worked just fine for me.. all works at 100%.. i guess i'll go get back to it then :) luna will have to wait for some time i guess..

7:11 clgv: is your os linux or windows ?

7:14 clgv: noncom|2: linux

7:15 noncom|2: the multiwindow issue on luna is a showstopper for me as well

7:16 noncom|2: clgv: how do you reproduce the multiwindow issue ?

7:17 clgv: noncom|2: I can't immediatel. It occurs after some time working in the project

7:18 noncom|2: https://code.google.com/p/counterclockwise/issues/detail?id=650

7:20 noncom|2: clgv: hmmmm... i see.. well.. eclipse keeps going astray with their changes to the api i guess :)

7:21 clgv: noncom|2: well probably CCW needs to drop support for older eclipse versions and move to the new eclipse 4 API. that compatibility layer for eclipse 3 plugins is probably causing this issue

7:22 not sure though

7:23 noncom|2: clgc: what linux are you using ? are you installing eclipse from their website or via some linux app manager ?

7:23 Clgv: sorry for mistyping the nic .. :)

7:23 omg again..

7:23 :)

7:23 phew..

7:24 clgv: noncom|2: linux mint 17, I always install eclipse manually

7:24 noncom|2: if you dont know it just think "Ubuntu 14.04" ;)

7:27 noncom|2: clgv: yeah, tried mint several times :) but mainly use ubuntu 14.04 for it being less in size. not my main os, so no care for media and other comfort stuff provided by mint..

7:28 clgv: currently researching the usability of clojure programming on android device with linux deploy + ubuntu 14.04.. i bet you remember this one

7:31 clgv: ah right

7:32 noncom|2: I like mint because it has two usable window managers where ubuntu has none ;)

7:32 warning: highly opinionated :P

7:33 ah well lets say subjective ;)

7:33 noncom|2: haha.. well, i just put lxde on ubuntu for now :) less size, less memory.. less power consumption - that's vital for me now

7:35 clgv: I am running cinnamon on my workstations and mate on my laptop

7:37 I need usable shortcuts for those forward/backward slurp/barf commands

8:52 lavokad: every time evaluation in cider throws a error, the *cider-error* buffer gets focused? How can I avoid this?

8:53 apod: lavokad: (setq cider-auto-select-error-buffer nil)

8:54 lavokad: apod: thank you

9:09 mikker: How can I auto-run a command as soon as I start my lein repl?

9:10 arrdem: :injections or user.clj

9:10 mikker: Something like .irbrc (I'm a clojure beginner coming from ruby)

9:10 user.clj in proj root ?

9:10 arrdem: user.clj on the source path

9:11 Clojure will by default load the file "user.clj" from the classpath as part of its boot sequence. whether this is a feature has been debated.

9:12 alternatively if you want _global_ injections you could use the :injections key in your leiningen user profile

9:12 mikker: src/user.clj works, thanks

9:12 arrdem: those will be applied to any REPL you start with lein anywhere

9:12 kk

9:13 mikker: I just want to automatically boot my ring server, when I start a repl

9:13 jaju: mikker: http://thinkrelevance.com/blog/2013/06/04/clojure-workflow-reloaded may be helpful. Talks about user.clj and excluding it in production etc.

9:13 In addition, I mean, to this discussion.

9:14 mikker: I saw that, never actually read it

9:14 Will do now

9:14 This is my third, I think, stab at my first clojure project and this time I think I'm getting it

9:15 (enough to get somewhere useful at least)

9:16 jaju: Incidentally, I am using clojurescript for the JS in an RoR project. Still trying to figure out the integration...

9:16 mikker: mix-n-match :)

9:33 clgv: is :inline-arities metadata something that is checked by the compiler on inlining?

9:34 humm seems it should be https://github.com/clojure/clojure/blob/1a560c80fece9de8d5d2b1260c4e5dff8be63eca/src/jvm/clojure/lang/Compiler.java#L6561

9:35 but I get no error when using the wrong arity

9:35 well maybe it just does not inline then

9:37 ah ok that's it

9:57 thirdOrange: hi - if I have a default template leinigen project and add another file under source, how can i use that file in the lein repl? i get a could not locate...on classpath error

9:57 rweir: what did you call it, hwo did you try to load it

9:58 thirdOrange: first i tried sending it there using fim fireplace -> cpr hotekey, then i tried (load "mynamespace.second")

9:58 vim fireplace

9:58 lvh: how do I spell a transducer that merges elems into a map? I was hoping either merge, but that doesn't appear to be it, or conj, but that appears to conj to [].

9:59 arrdem: lvh: conj of two element vectors onto a map should work..

10:00 lvh: actually, lemme restart cider first, I'm still running .1.6

10:00 clgv: thirdOrange: you probably didn't place and/or name the namespace file right and thus the classloader is not able to find it

10:00 arrdem: that could be an issue

10:01 clgv: thirdOrange: for the namespace "a.b.c" you need the file "c.clj" in the folder "src/a/b/" (assuming the default source folder "src")

10:02 thirdOrange: clgv: that was it. i had a dash in my file name but not in the namespace name. wasn't aware of that restriction, thanks!

10:02 clgv: thirdOrange: dashes need to be converted to underscore

10:02 arrdem: thirdOrange: dashes in namespace names correspond to _ in file names

10:02 lvh: hm, in alpha1, (conj) is still [], not a transducer

10:02 arrdem: lvh: alpha2?

10:03 thirdOrange: arrdem: ah thanks!

10:03 arrdem: thirdOrange: it's a known pitfall that Rich has been unwilling to improve the handling of for some reason

10:04 lvh: arrdem: that's a thing? http://clojure.org/downloads still says -alpha1 :/

10:04 arrdem: I think the argument is that "everyone does it once and only once so why bother"

10:04 lvh: hum... I would have sworn there was an alpha2 [ann] on the mailing list.

10:04 lvh: arrdem: maven central agrees with you

10:04 arrdem: https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/clojure/clojure/1.7.0-alpha2/

10:04 lvh: so I guess the page just never got updated :)

10:04 arrdem: lol

10:05 * arrdem peaces out for class

10:08 lvh: arrdem: thanks :)

10:19 samflores: arrdem, alpha2 here: (type (conj)) ;; => clojure.lang.PersistentVector

10:19 shouldn't it be a fn?

10:20 like: (type (map identity)) ;; => clojure.core$map$fn__4341

10:21 clgv: ,(conj)

10:21 clojurebot: []

10:22 lvh: I guess async/into {} actually does what Iw ant

10:31 cbp: ,(type (map identity))

10:31 clojurebot: clojure.core$map$fn__4341

10:31 cbp: o snap

10:31 I've been away from clojure for too long it seems

10:32 TEttinger: ,(map identity)

10:34 hyPiRion: $google clojure transducers hickey

10:34 lazybot: [Transducers are Coming — Cognitect Blog] http://blog.cognitect.com/blog/2014/8/6/transducers-are-coming

10:36 clgv: clojurebot: transducers |are| explained here: http://blog.cognitect.com/blog/2014/8/6/transducers-are-coming

10:36 clojurebot: Ack. Ack.

10:36 clgv: transducers?

10:36 clojurebot: transducers are a thing

10:36 clgv: :(

10:36 ~transducers

10:36 clojurebot: transducers are explained here: http://blog.cognitect.com/blog/2014/8/6/transducers-are-coming

10:36 clgv: :D

10:36 mdrogalis: clgv: Emphasis on -are-.

10:36 Just to be sure.

10:36 rweir: they're the monads of the clojure world

10:36 clgv: mdrogalis: huh? what?

10:36 rweir: can someone explain them to me in terms of a burrito in a space suit?

10:37 mdrogalis: clgv: Heh, just a joke. Nothing.

10:37 clgv: :P

10:37 hyPiRion: rweir: they are not monads, but have roughly the same "wat"-factor

10:38 clgv: function compositions would be a pretty general description, I guess

10:38 TEttinger: but not the same as comp, I guess

10:40 danneu: does anyone else have a problem with their aot compilation hanging every few times they push to heroku?

10:40 clgv: yes, something that has to fulfill the contract of "map" needs to include some iteration specific code

10:41 rweir: hyPiRion, yeah, I know, I meant that they're an important abstraction that seems exceedingly hard for people to get

10:41 [me included]

10:42 clgv: I dont know if I am wrong there, but I am reminded of ring middleware definitions when looking at the single arity implementation of "map"

10:42 hyPiRion: I wouldn't say hard necessarily, but very foreign

10:43 I would guess I used more time to grok for loops the first time, compared to transducers

10:43 clgv: hyPiRion: the c/c++/java-things or the clojure "for"?

10:46 hyPiRion: clgv: java/c/c++/all-other-algol-like language style for

10:46 clgv: :O

10:47 justin_smith: I spent more time learning the word "bird" than the word "modem" - I think it may be related to the order I learned things

10:47 hyPiRion: huh? It was insanely hard to grok how it worked when I first started programming

10:49 clgv: "a function getting a function F as argument returning a function M that takes a function C as argument and recursively combining F and C" is pretty complicated compared to "iterate through all numbers between A and B" ;) maybe too much implementation details on 1-map

10:49 samflores: is the clojurebot source available?

10:49 rweir: c/c++ for is much harder than it looks, since it's for (arbitrary_expression ; arbitrary_expression ; arbitray_expression_interpreted_as_boolean)

10:49 justin_smith: samflores: yeah, it is findable on github

10:49 rweir: whereas e.g. python's is "hit the object with the 'next' stick until it is empty"

10:49 clgv: samflores: yes, look on github

10:50 samflores: thanks

11:13 gdeer81: arrdem, doing the clojurecup this year?

11:56 dorkmafia: #<CompilerException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No matching ctor found for class org.jivesoftware.smack.XMPPConnection, compiling

11:57 does that mean it can't find the jar?

11:57 gdeer81: dorkmafia, it could mean you're trying to call the constructor with the wrong number of arguments

11:57 bbloom: I dislike JIRA so much that the new HipChat redesign makes me dislike it too: https://twitter.com/bjburton/status/509369159697068033/photo/1

11:58 dorkmafia: it's an abstract class (defn stop [#^XMPPConnection conn] (when conn (.disconnect conn)))

11:58 that's the only place it's called :\

11:59 numberten: is there a good way to create new leaf values for prismatic's schema?

11:59 like a new primitive for non-zero ints or something

12:00 dorkmafia: or wait maybe here conn (XMPPConnection. connect-config)]

12:01 clgv: dorkmafia: Clojure does not find a constructor in the class that matches the constructor call in your code with respect to the number or arguments and maybe also the types of the arguments

12:01 gdeer81: dorkmafia, the constructor is marked as protected

12:01 dorkmafia: got ya

12:01 clgv: dorkmafia: yeah, that's very likely the spot it complains about - you should have a line number in the exception as well

12:02 gfredericks: numberten: the pred function would help with that, no?

12:03 numberten: gfredericks: aye I just found that, thank you :)

12:04 dorkmafia: clgv it was just telling me line 1 before where the import was

12:05 which was a bit frustrating :P

13:10 justin_smith: ,:ping

13:10 clojurebot: :ping

13:14 jtackett: hey does ring reload work if there is a long running process that needs to be returned to a web page?

13:16 justin_smith: by "long running process that nees to be returned to a web page" do you mean some result or statsu of a long running process needs to be used as input to render a page?

13:16 jtackett: yes

13:16 justin_smith: how do you bind that process for retrieval?

13:16 jtackett: the long running process would return the text that needs to be placed in a text area

13:16 justin_smith: is there an atom? something in the session?

13:16 jtackett: in a future

13:17 justin_smith: how is the future bound? in an atom? something in the session?

13:17 jtackett: write now the method is just called in the html view

13:17 justin_smith: a global var?

13:17 jtackett: not bound now

13:17 justin_smith: so, in the handler that renders the page, you have a local binding to a long running process

13:17 jtackett: yes

13:18 justin_smith: and the client just sits and waits for the long running process to complete before they get their response?

13:18 jtackett: yep

13:18 which ultimately leads to a time out error

13:18 justin_smith: as I would expect

13:19 jtackett: would like to avoid web sockets and polling if possible

13:19 justin_smith: you could attach a binding to the long running process to the session, so they could get the result with a future request. Or you could write some front end AJAX that polls for the result and fills it in later.

13:20 with no web sockets or polling, your best bet is to attach a binding to the process in the session, and on the following request, check if it is complete, returning the result if it is available

13:21 jtackett: how does AJAX work?

13:21 justin_smith: ,(realized? (future (Thread/sleep 300000)))

13:21 clojurebot: #<SecurityException java.lang.SecurityException: no threads please>

13:21 justin_smith: bleh

13:21 jtackett: AJAX is where the javascript on the rendered page sends a request back to the server

13:22 and then, usually, uses the data it gets to update the page without a full reload of the page

13:22 jtackett: so what is an easy way to wrap a method call in AJAX?

13:22 justin_smith: like the way gmail or facebook can tell you about events even though you have not reloaded the page

13:22 method call?

13:22 jtackett: so in the view

13:23 html page. …. <p> … blah blah (get-text “input”) … blah blah

13:23 justin_smith: jtackett: I don't know what you mean by view. In my professional experience the view is javascript / html / css that runs in the browser, but you use the word view to refer to things in clojure.

13:23 jtackett: yes think of the view as html

13:24 justin_smith: but there is an essential barrier here

13:24 things either execute on the client or server

13:24 jtackett: i am just using hiccup to render the html

13:24 justin_smith: the rendering that happens in clojure (in hiccup) is part of the server, so it is not part of the view

13:24 it is generating data for the view layer

13:25 jtackett: for me, the handler

13:25 justin_smith: in order to do AJAX you need javascript code that makes a request back to the server, with a callback that updates the DOM

13:25 jtackett: has routes, that call views (html code rendered by hiccup)

13:25 justin_smith: OK so in your model the browser doesn't even exist

13:26 jtackett: i don’t think so

13:27 Rhainur: jtackett: what are you trying to do again? why do you need to "wrap" a method call in AJAX?

13:27 justin_smith: You may need to adopt a different model of the architecture if you want a long running process to display results. With AJAX, the view is javascript running in the browser, and it polls for expected updates from the server (controller)

13:27 Rhainur: he has a long running process, and wants the results to show up to the browser, but the process takes so long the request times out

13:28 jtackett: I would like a long running process to return text thta would be displayed in the html

13:29 dgrnbrg: I want to give my library a name—it lets you use core.async with Ring: https://github.com/dgrnbrg/async-ring

13:29 however, Ring isn’t a name I can use

13:29 Rhainur: jtackett: do you know how long the process takes roughly?

13:29 jtackett: Rhainur: it varies based on the user input

13:30 more than 30 secs though because that’s all heroku allows

13:30 Rhainur: oh hmmm

13:30 that's a different issue entirely

13:31 maybe you want to shift this to a background task

13:31 jtackett: tricky isn’t it

13:31 Rhainur: and poll for results

13:31 jtackett: I could do that

13:31 how would I go about setting that up?

13:31 Rhainur: let's shift this to PM because this isn't really clojure related

13:31 justin_smith: if you are doing it all yourself, you may want to use clojurescript and core.async

13:33 dbasch: jtackett: what you’re trying to do it’s pretty standard, you just have to learn the tools. Have you checked out sente yet?

13:33 noonian: yeah, i was recommending chord for a slightly simpler introduction

13:34 jtackett: I have, but I am getting very confused since my project is set up with compojure and hiccup

13:34 aka a view and a handler

13:34 view for html

13:34 handler for routes

13:39 justin_smith: as I said before, to really use things like long runnint processes and polling, your "view" has to conceptually be in the browser, not on the server

13:40 jtackett: the view is in the browser, it is html

13:40 amalloy: dgrnbrg: i just read your readme for async-ring, and i didn't see any mention of what looks like the most important feature: that you can return a channel from your handler function

13:40 dgrnbrg: Well, you actually create one channel per handler, instead of per request

13:40 justin_smith: jtackett: let me try again: you need logic that runs in the browser

13:40 amalloy: the whole readme looked like "here's how you can make a small change to your existing ring server and it'll now work with async-ring"

13:41 noonian: jtackett: you will need to have some javascript code execute from the browser in order to talk to your handler and ask if the process is done, or the server will have to tell the browser the process is done using something like websockets

13:41 dgrnbrg: amalloy: I think that Beauty in the most compelling thing right no

13:41 now

13:41 amalloy: dgrnbrg: then say that! i have to read the source to figure out how i would write anything with async-ring, aside from wrapping existing apps, which presumably doesn't buy me as much as drinking the kool-aid and writing async-style

13:43 jtackett: alright

13:43 looks like i need to bite the bullet and learn clojure script

13:43 shit....

13:43 amalloy: anyway, i'm not really a prospective user, so feel free to ignore my advice: i was just providing feedback since you linked to your project

13:44 dbasch: jtackett: you don’t *need* to learn clojurescript, but you do need to think of the client side of your application and figure something out

13:44 gfredericks: amalloy: didn't he just ask for a name? In which case obviously ##(format "lib-%04d" (rand-int 10000))

13:44 lazybot: ⇒ "lib-8127"

13:45 jtackett: alright dbasch: will do

13:45 thank you guys for all the help

13:45 I’ll be back

13:45 justin_smith: gfredericks: well, it worked for wd-40 and 409

13:45 maybe the key is you need to have 40 as a substring

13:46 milos_cohagen: Y'all think it makes sense to keep hacking on this netty+core.async project I created? https://github.com/marsmining/nettyca

13:46 amalloy: gfredericks: he did, but i'm obstreperous and treat linked-to readmes as solicitations for any advice

13:47 milos_cohagen: Would be interested in if I'm just barking up the wrong tree

13:48 dgrnbrg: amalloy: I just rewrote the first few features—would you take a look?

13:48 Rhainur: jtackett: I need to point this out and everyone else will agree, if you don't know JS at all, learn that first before you learn clojurescript

13:49 you will really struggle to debug things if you don't understand JS

13:49 jtackett: got ya

13:49 thank you

13:49 i first learned java and then clojure

13:49 similar concept

13:49 hiredman: reiddraper: I've noticed in my (small) usage of test.check I tend to end up writing a little interpreter and have test.check generate programs for that interpreter, and then have a little function that checks each step of the execution

13:50 reiddraper: is that kind of thing common?

13:50 reiddraper: hiredman: maybe not 'common', but a great idea i think

13:50 amalloy: hiredman: that's what i did

13:51 in my (one) usage of t.c

13:51 reiddraper: i've succesfully used that technique several times

13:51 amalloy: dgrnbrg: it looks more interesting to me now, yes. i don't think you should capitalize "Core.async", though, even at the beginning of a sentence/title

13:51 hiredman: so I am not entirely out to lunch with this, which is good to know

13:52 dgrnbrg: amalloy: I’ll change that

13:52 amalloy: any ideas for a better name?

13:53 what do you think of “Rasync HTTP”

13:54 amalloy: (rand-nth (line-seq (clojure.java.io/reader "/usr/share/dict/words"))) ;; => "ricing"

13:54 as good a strategy as any

13:54 dbasch: amalloy: sic-granny

13:54 amalloy: wat

13:54 that word is not in my dictionary

13:55 TimMc: anagram

13:55 dbasch: (anagram-generator “async ring”)

13:55 milos_cohagen: > as good a strategy as any

13:55 oops! wierd drag / copy / paste. 'scuse me

13:57 amalloy: dgrnbrg: i think you kinda get three choices: (1) a bland, descriptive name like async-ring; (2) a dictionary word, which you can choose at random or think about for a long time to find something punny; (3) ##(format "lib-%04d" (rand-int 10000))

13:57 lazybot: ⇒ "lib-5842"

13:57 dgrnbrg: oi

13:57 TimMc: Dictionary word or in my case, taxonomic name of some organism.

13:57 amalloy: which one of those appeals to you is a matter of personal taste

13:57 TimMc: dgrnbrg: torus

13:57 technomancy: if you're working with ring, the obvious choice is a Wagnerian name

13:58 come on you guys

13:58 amalloy: you could name it after a famous character from literature, but that's technomancy's thing

13:58 dgrnbrg: TimMc: that is amazing

13:58 technomancy: do I have to spell everything out for you

13:58 TimMc: Where does ring's name come from?

13:58 dgrnbrg: I’m leaning heavily towards Torus, unless there’s a ring-like character in Flatland

13:58 amalloy: TimMc: actually someone asked that in here just a week or two ago, and there might have been a plausible answer but i don't remember

13:58 technomancy: TimMc: the request/response cycle -> the ring cycle -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Ring_des_Nibelungen

13:59 TimMc: really

13:59 TEttinger: dgrnbrg: maru is taken, but it's circle in japanese

13:59 amalloy: i remember mdeboard being involved in the discussion

13:59 TEttinger: also, Maru is the best cat.

14:00 http://imgur.com/gallery/vOZ3t

14:00 justin_smith: TEttinger: maru would be a good name for a library that gratuitously boxes data

14:00 dgrnbrg: perhaps Kol’tso, which is ring in russian

14:00 TEttinger: http://www.piumarta.com/software/maru/

14:01 TimMc: (ring -> torus -> taurus (bull) -> goats) + (http -> web) = spidergoat

14:01 TEttinger: (inc justin_smith)

14:01 lazybot: ⇒ 76

14:01 gfredericks: TimMc: waddabout async?

14:01 dgrnbrg: Actually, Nibelung is a pretty nice name—it’s a “cycle” that’s a “ring"

14:01 gfredericks: async -> sink -> plumber?

14:01 amalloy: [13:42:30] mdeboard: sdegutis: It is an homage to the black plague that rampaged through Europe in the dark ages. its hallmark was a rosey, ring-shaped rash.

14:01 [13:43:16] mdeboard: Rich Hickey lost many close friends & relatives in the Black Death and so he vowed that his programming language would have a network adapter library to stand as eternal testament to their memory

14:01 [13:43:34] mdeboard: And now you know... the rest of the story.

14:01 TEttinger: luigi

14:01 TimMc: gfredericks: You think a spidergoat can't handle async?

14:02 amalloy: so no, i guess not a plausible answer

14:02 gfredericks: TimMc: I think the name applies just as well to ring itself

14:02 dgrnbrg: and a cycle is like the async state machine

14:02 TimMc: ssshhhh

14:02 * gfredericks would never question the abilities of the spidergoat

14:02 hiredman: taurine (an incredient in many energy drinks) comes from taurus because it was first isolated in the bile of bulls

14:02 TEttinger: Oroboros is probably taken

14:02 hiredman: (favorite energy drink/taurus related fact)

14:03 TimMc: incredient, is that an ingerdient I am incredulous about?

14:03 TEttinger: hoop maybe?

14:03 amalloy: TimMc: "ingerdient" makes your sarcastic correction less credible

14:03 TimMc: Nothing like a good ol' timey naming party.

14:03 TEttinger: ballmer, since he's loopy

14:03 dgrnbrg: TEttinger: I don’t think oroboros is taken

14:03 TimMc: amalloy: Ha! Muphry's Law strikes again.

14:03 milos_cohagen: lol @ all these naming shenanigans

14:03 hiredman: TimMc: well you would have to be incredulous about something with a misspelling like that

14:03 justin_smith: speaking of goats http://www.goat-simulator.com/

14:04 amalloy: milos_cohagen: naming stuff is one of the two hard things in computer science

14:04 TimMc: amalloy: Not really a correction -- I think a word with that definition should exist. :-)

14:04 TEttinger: amalloy, the other being dealing with users/clients?

14:04 amalloy: TEttinger: caching and off-by-one errors

14:04 mikerod: cider is not displaying anything I print to *out*

14:05 justin_smith: the two hard cs problems: naming, caching, off by one errors

14:05 mikerod: is it doing something here

14:05 TEttinger: hahaha

14:05 TimMc: TEttinger: And if this were in-person, I would have yelled "concurrency" while amalloy was talking.

14:05 amalloy: hah

14:05 TEttinger: ha!

14:05 justin_smith: lol

14:05 TEttinger: (inc TimMc)

14:05 lazybot: ⇒ 67

14:05 TimMc: but that would make it an off-by-two error

14:05 TEttinger: (inc amalloy)

14:05 lazybot: ⇒ 166

14:06 amalloy: TimMc: i left the joke half-finished on purpose, so someone else could fill it in if they wanted, but then TEttinger asked me specifically, so i had to finish it myself

14:06 TEttinger: damn that's a lot of karma

14:06 amalloy: (inc TimMc)

14:06 lazybot: ⇒ 68

14:06 amalloy: i like the concurrency addendum

14:06 justin_smith: interrjectum?

14:06 milos_cohagen: amalloy: speaking of naming things this cracked me up recently https://twitter.com/SlexAxton/status/507748452349251584

14:06 justin_smith: yes, it is excellent

14:09 *orbital, ugh

14:09 dgrnbrg: I think that the winner has come in through the backchannel: Spirl - A Ring that doesn’t block

14:10 Spiral*

14:10 gfredericks: clojurebot: spirl is a rng that doesn't blck

14:10 clojurebot: c'est bon!

14:16 TEttinger: Bearhug would be Ring that blocks even more

14:16 or alternately Octagon

14:17 nullptr: orbit, saturn, hula ....

15:01 arohner: I have the strangest bug. My app works just fine if I 'lein run', but I get Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/stuartsierra/component/Lifecycle if I 'lein repl' then (require 'foo.main)

15:03 je: how come this: (map Integer. ["2" "5"]) throws "ClassNotFoundException: java.lang.Integer." when this (Integer. "2") gives me 2 ?

15:03 arohner: je Integer. isn't a function

15:03 ,(map #(Integer. %) ["2" "5"])

15:03 clojurebot: (2 5)

15:04 je: arohner: thanks makes sense :)

15:04 arohner: java interop uses special forms, so you have to wrap in fns to make map, etc work

15:04 dogonthehorizon: arohner: Is the constructor not considered a function in this context?

15:05 arohner: dogonthehorizon: when I say "isn't a fn", I mean "doesn't inherit from clojure.lang.IFn"

15:05 so by that definition, Integer. is never a fn

15:05 it's a special form

15:05 dogonthehorizon: Ah, that makes sense. Thanks!

15:09 amalloy: it's funny that Integer. is the example that *everyone* uses when asking this question. i don't quite know why

15:10 DaReaper5: Hey, I have a question: How do I get a value from a vector when I do not know the index AND the vector is a set of maps?

15:10 I was thinking a for with a :when. But I am not sure about the return.

15:11 Fare: what do you nkow?

15:12 DaReaper5: with a traditional language I would have a for loop, have an if, and when found use a break;

15:13 amalloy: like, someone asked http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25632613/cant-map-integer?lq=1 just a week ago: Integer. again

15:13 dbasch: DaReaper5: if you need to get a value and you don’t know the index, why is it a vector?

15:13 * Fare instead uses clojure.core/read-string or Double/parseDouble

15:13 DaReaper5: i dont want to use a loop (that uses recur) but it might be the only option i see

15:13 dbasch: due to data structure requirements

15:14 dogonthehorizon: (map String. ["why" "doesn't" "this" "work" "amalloy?"])

15:14 amalloy: DaReaper5: in general if you want the first item of a collection that satisfies a predicate, that's pretty easy to do in a number of ways, although you should usually consider a better data structure that doesn't require this looping

15:15 (first (filter what-i-want? thingies))

15:15 DaReaper5: amalloy: i agree,and thanks for the example. That is better than "loop" :)

15:16 dbasch: &(map str ["but" "this" "does" "dogonthehorizon"])

15:16 lazybot: ⇒ ("but" "this" "does" "dogonthehorizon")

15:16 amalloy: by the way. DaReaper5's suggestion of using a for-loop with a break reminds me of some pretty absurd code with a similar structure in the example code for kafka: check out "findNewLeader" in https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/0.8.0+SimpleConsumer+Example, in particular the if/else flow around goToSleep and return

15:17 rickhall2000: llasram: you around?

15:17 dogonthehorizon: dbasch: It was tongue-in-cheek to amalloy's question of why everyone users Integer. as an example of a Java constructor not working in map

15:19 milos_cohagen: Hey all, for learning purposes I wrote a small library of netty and core.async interop code. Do you think it might be useful to pursue further, or have any suggestions in general? https://github.com/marsmining/nettyca

15:32 dagda1: if I have an infinite range, what the hell is (drop 10 (range)) taking as its end?

15:32 AimHere: it doesn't.

15:32 ToxicFrog: dagda1: it's not? It drops the first 10 elements of range and returns the rest.

15:32 dagda1: AimHere: so it just spins

15:32 AimHere: The trick to laziness is that you never ever ask what the end of (range) is

15:33 dagda1, only if you evaluate it

15:33 ToxicFrog: It doesn't need to know what the end of range is to discard the first ten elements from it.

15:34 ,(take 10 (drop 10 (range)))

15:34 clojurebot: (10 11 12 13 14 ...)

15:35 dagda1: I'm trying to get my head round Lazyness, so if I have (take 5 (expensive-function)) how does lazyness work in this scenario

15:35 a lazy seq's next element is a function and not an actual element

15:35 AimHere: Well a lazy function is just a data structure that waits until you ask it for a value to give it

15:35 *lazy sequence

15:36 dagda1, there's a good treatment on Laziness in SICP if you're okay with learning a little light scheme

15:37 dagda1: AimHere: what is SICP, structure and interpetation of computer programs?

15:38 AimHere: Yeah

15:38 J_Arcane: Laziness is fun.

15:39 mdrogalis: Sick-P.

15:46 irctc: I'm looking a working example of core.logic in ClojureScript

15:47 anybody knows where I can find this?

15:55 dnolen_: irctc: in the core.logic repo there are tests/examples

16:14 arohner: oh fun, I have datomic + leiningen bug

16:14 I have a bug that only appears when doing 'lein repl', but not 'lein run', and only when datomic is required before stuartsierra.component

16:17 xeqi: that would be a strange bug

16:19 arohner: xeqi: tell me about it. It's taken a few hours to run down

16:19 I think something in the middle is mucking with my classloader

16:20 changing the order of requires definitely fixes it though

16:32 J_Arcane: OK, the clojure koans on recursion have completely broken my brain.

16:33 noonian: the first step towards self-actualization

16:34 J_Arcane: like, I get recursion in general fine, I'm not *that* new to Lisp, it's the sample problem (solving for even recursively) that I think I am too tired to make sense of.

16:37 noonian: if its the one i'm thinking of, the key is in what happens to an even (or odd) number when you decrement it

16:38 J_Arcane: right. Of course. I need a not.

16:39 (I should've read ahead to the bigint version)

16:40 noonian: then make it tail recursive :)

16:40 heh

16:50 amalloy: eh, if you make it tail-recursive you end up realizing you've just written a while loop

16:51 noonian: well, thats worth something right?

16:56 dbasch: recurvise even? is quite silly anyway

16:56 recursive

16:57 amalloy: dbasch: it's an okay introduction to thinking recursively, even if it's a terrible algorithm

16:58 dbasch: amalloy: at least it could be pow-2?

16:58 amalloy: dbasch: why would that be better?

16:59 SagiCZ1: is there a clojure way to list all available methods/fields on a java type<

16:59 ?

16:59 dbasch: amalloy: at least the obvious solution is not constant time

16:59 amalloy: SagiCZ1: clojure.java.reflect/reflect

16:59 SagiCZ1: amalloy: thank you

16:59 amalloy: or, and i'm sure this will be easier, just look at the javadocs

17:00 dagda1: is cons the only function that can return a lazy sequence

17:00 SagiCZ1: amalloy: okay then :(

17:00 amalloy: dagda1: cons is one function that cannot return a lazy sequence

17:01 you were asking the other day about your stack overflow in a recursive lazy seq with conj, right? and we told you to use cons

17:01 cons doesn't return a lazy seq (the thing that does that is called lazy-seq), but it is a good tool to use as *part* of building a lazy seq

17:02 dagda1: amalloy: yes, I got it workign but I'm trying to get a better understanding of lazy now https://gist.github.com/dagda1/9f6a503a8e35cb8006aa

17:02 J_Arcane: Well. I guess I have now learned that Clojure is indeed multithreaded ...

17:03 amalloy: dagda1: looks like a reasonable implementation of reductions

17:04 dagda1: amalloy: I'm trying to blog about lazyness now to make sure I understand this properly

17:05 amally: so there is no real connection between cons and lazyness

17:08 noprompt: dnolen_, bbloom: ping

17:09 dnolen_: noprompt: pong

17:09 noprompt: dnolen_: small question about resolving symbols with ana/resolve-var

17:09 gfredericks: dagda1: cons is compatible with laziness in that the second arg can be a lazy seq, and cons will not force it

17:09 amalloy: dagda1: your irc client will tab-complete usernames, so you don't have to spell them wrong

17:09 gfredericks: ,(take 3 (cons :haha (range)))

17:09 dnolen_: noprompt: what's up?

17:09 clojurebot: (:haha 0 1)

17:10 noprompt: dnolen_: why does (resolve-var &env 'reify) return user/reify (assuming i'm in the user ns)?

17:10 dagda1: amalloy: I am guilty of not using the autocomplete

17:10 noprompt: dnolen_: well, actually it returns {:ns user, :name user/reify}

17:10 dnolen_: noprompt: resolve var always returns fully qualified symbols

17:11 amalloy: dnolen_: i'm no expert here, but why wouldn't it return clojure.core/reify?

17:11 dagda1: gfredericks: so what gets returned is a structure that behaves like a sequence

17:11 noprompt: dnolen_: but in this case, user/reify would be incorrect. i guess the deeper question would be how could i get it to correctly resolve to clojure.core/reify?

17:12 dagda1: gfredericks: a bit like an iterator in java

17:12 dnolen_: noprompt: amalloy: oh hrm right

17:12 amalloy: dagda1: yes, a bit

17:13 noprompt: dnolen_: i'm sure there's a reason for having symbols that don't exist to resolve like that but i'm some what at a loss for why. for example, (ana/resolve-var &env 'lol) does this same thing even if lol does not exist in the ns.

17:13 amalloy: noprompt: well, backquote does the same thing

17:13 ,`lol

17:13 clojurebot: sandbox/lol

17:14 dnolen_: noprompt: yeah that's probably wrong but I guess most people haven't noticed since you can't use resolve-var really outside of macros

17:14 thesaskwatch: Hi .. I have a question about protocols. Why there are supposedly better than adapter pattern in oo? Let's say I have some external not modifiable object. I can wrap it with an adapter object which will have interface I like. Aren't protocols the same? Maybe with added benefit of not having to implement all interface methods.

17:15 noprompt: dnolen_: that's ok. what should the correct behavior be?

17:15 dnolen_: noprompt: I suppose unqualified core symbols should probably resolve to core - it's a special case

17:16 noprompt: as far as the 'lol case you need to use resolve-existing-var

17:16 noprompt: resolve-var, resolve-existing-var are both a bit strange as they were designed to serve the analyzer/compiler

17:17 amalloy: thesaskwatch: that doesn't sound like protocols at all

17:17 noprompt: dnolen_: not necessarily. suppose `(:refer-clojure :exclude [reify]) (:require-macros [schema.macros :refer [reify]])` resolving reify in that ns should resolve to schema.macros/reify, no?

17:17 amalloy: a protocol is, if you like, just an interface with the additional feature that you can add implementations for it to already-existing classes

17:17 noprompt: dnolen_: or is this simply beyond the scope of resolution for purposes of the analyzer?

17:17 thesaskwatch: amalloy: I can do the same with adapter to new interface

17:17 dnolen_: noprompt: yes but those kinds of cases should be handled if your analysis environment has that information

17:18 not env arg

17:18 but cljs.env/*compiler* dyn var

17:18 amalloy: thesaskwatch: no, you can't. say you want an interface like Printable, which should have an implementation for String. you can create a PrintableString wrapper, which works fine for the Printable interface, but you can't give that to other code and have it act like a string

17:19 noprompt: dnolen_: ok i can work with that.

17:19 amalloy: ie, instead of a string which is also printable, you end up with an opaque box which is printable but nothing else

17:20 thesaskwatch: amalloy: true .. string is a special case as it's final. But for extensible types it could be done.

17:20 noprompt: dnolen_: ugh, i'm just trying to make this tracing library accurate.

17:20 amalloy: thesaskwatch: the point is that you don't have to touch the classes you want to create implementations for. it's just a dispatch mechanism

17:20 dnolen_: noprompt: I take it you're trying to use the analyzer to do this?

17:21 noprompt: dnolen_: yes. for thing like protocols, i need it.

17:21 dnolen_: i need to be able to see om.core/IRender and not o/IRender, etc.

17:22 thesaskwatch: amalloy: ok, I'm starting to understand .. thank you

17:22 dnolen_: noprompt: right, I think there's probably a bug around that too at the moment - would love to see it get fixed up

17:22 noonian: thesaskwatch: imagine a library where all the api functions return a type Foo, and you want to release a library that allows Foos to do something. in clojure with protocols someone could include your library and the Foo library and all would be good, with adapters youd have to wrap each api fn or create an abstraction for wrapping the return values from that library

17:22 aside from the issues with extending protocols and types you dont own

17:23 noprompt: dnolen_: i could take a stab at it. i've been playing with that ns a lot more.

17:23 thesaskwatch: noonian: in addition wrapper and the thing it wraps is not the same thing, and in case of protocol it's always the original value, right?

17:23 noprompt: dnolen_: just need to know what the correct behaviour should be.

17:23 dnolen_: noprompt: you should always get back fully qualified names - no aliases

17:23 om/IRender -> {:ns 'om.core :name om.core/IRender}

17:23 noonian: thesaskwatch: right, so you could make a protocol and implement it for Foo's and I could make a different protocol and extend it to Foos and now a Foo would support both of our protocols without our code knowing about each other

17:24 thesaskwatch: noonian: ok, it makes sense

17:24 dnolen_: noprompt: the only special case for unqualified things is core

17:24 noprompt: though the last clause in resolve-var should have caught reify

17:25 J_Arcane: Ow. Well, that wasn't fun.

17:25 noprompt: dnolen_: so it should resolve macro symbols properly?

17:25 dnolen_: noprompt: yeah, I think that's what's broken - not handling macros

17:25 noprompt: dnolen_: which is why it's just falling through to the default case and returning {:ns user :name user/reify}?

17:26 dnolen_: noprompt: well part of the issue is that resolve-var generally doesn't get called until after macroexpansion

17:27 since macros aren't defined in ClojureScript there are no corresponding entries in the compilation environment

17:30 noprompt: definitely something to fix in parse 'ns - :refer should popluate :defs

17:31 noprompt: dnolen_: this oughta be a fun one.

17:31 dnolen_: noprompt: separate actionable tickets :)

17:31 noprompt: dnolen_: sure thing.

17:31 dnolen_: noprompt: by which I just mean, no need to come up w/ a monster patch

17:32 noprompt: there's small clean fixes to submit here

17:32 noprompt: dnolen_: tbaldridge has given me similar guidance on better errors in clojure.core

17:34 dnolen_: is the :rename {foo bar} still something that'd we'd wanna add too? i've been pining to get that in.

17:34 dnolen_: noprompt: sounds reasonable to me

17:34 noprompt: never use that in Clojure myself

17:35 but I can see why people want it

17:35 noprompt: dnolen_: i use on occasion. primarily this would be for consistency, unless there's a plan to deprecate that down the way.

17:36 amalloy: i used :rename recently, actually. i can't remember why at the moment

17:37 (:require [hiccup.util :refer [escape-html] :rename {escape-html escape}]). apparently i just felt escape-html was a bad name. i'm not really going to hold this one up as a paragon of brilliance

17:40 noprompt: dnolen_: this tracing lib, aside from the yak shaving and bugs, is pretty awesome. for 90% of the println use cases, this eliminates them.

17:40 J_Arcane: welp. Seeing as how I just managed to force a system reboot with that last function, I think it's time I call it a night. :P

17:41 amalloy: J_Arcane: did you just fork-bomb yourself for fun?

17:41 dnolen_: noprompt: it looks really neat from the images - looking forward to hearing more about it

17:41 noprompt: you're probably pretty far along by now but also this seems like a good use case for tools.analyzer.js as well

17:42 J_Arcane: amalloy: Apparently I don't yet understand how to safely make a list-eater in Clojure. My solution to the recursive-reverse koan caused a run-away process instead ...

17:42 noprompt: dnolen_: general concept => https://github.com/spellhouse/clairvoyant#design

17:42 dnolen_: i don't mind looking into the tools.analyzer.js lib. i was thinking about it this morning, in fact.

17:43 dnolen_: any suggestions design ideas would be helpful. the main goal is to separate transformation of source code and what to do with trace data.

17:45 Bronsa: noprompt: using tools.analyzer.js for doing code transformations might have some rough cases around protocols/deftypes

17:45 thesaskwatch: Another question. Is it possible to add additional methods in defrecord beyond interfaces/protocols it implements?

17:45 (and if possible to make them private) ?

17:46 dnolen_: noprompt: that sounds like a sound goal to me.

17:46 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: if they are private, why put them on the record? why not a function private to that ns that acts on that record type?

17:47 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: I don't see anything against it .. but was just wondering if some kind of encapsulation is possible

17:48 Bronsa: dnolen_: would you take a patch to change the deftype*/defrecord* special forms signature to take an additional body containing the inline-methods impl? the cljs analyzer uses an ugly hack to handle the deftype closed overs that I cannot use in t.a.js

17:49 what I'd like is to make deftype macroexpand into (deftype* type [args] (do inline-methods-impls)) rather than (do (deftype* type [args]) (do inline-methods-impls))

17:50 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: For the deepest level of encapsulation, you can create an anonymous function local to some other scope, and not expose it outside that scope. All you need for this is a let binding or an argument to a function. For something a little more visible you can create functions that are private to an ns.

17:50 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: ok, I know this way, it's how one does it in javascript

17:50 justin_smith: was just wondering if it's clojure idiomatic

17:50 noprompt: Bronsa: would the analyzer tools help me do tricky stuff like this? https://github.com/spellhouse/clairvoyant/blob/master/src/clairvoyant/core.clj#L213-L220

17:51 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: information hiding is not very idiomatic - with immutibility, it is often not needed

17:51 noprompt: Bronsa: tl;dr it's rewriting the function so i can see the inputs to the function when a precondition fails.

17:51 TimMc: Huh, I just saw (pst) drop the top-most exception, leaving a pretty inscrutable error message: https://gist.github.com/timmc/77dd67b6b4af7ab4afb7

17:52 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: unfortunately not all code can be pure, with i/o it's becoming more complex

17:52 TimMc: Can anyone explain this behavior?

17:52 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: if someone calls a helper function from my ns, they may see their code break because it isn't meant to be used that way, but they cannot break my code, because nothing in my ns is mutible enough for their access to be able to break it

17:52 i/o has nothing to do with this

17:53 and i/o effects should not be exposed on an ns level - it should be local to some inner block

17:53 hiredman: TimMc: check the class of *e

17:54 TimMc: likely it is some rx exception that does something on .printStackTrace that it doesn't do on getCause

17:55 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: ok, let's say I have irc client. It uses socket connection and data reader/writer. How would you encapsulate this using a set of pure functions?

17:57 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: the socket connection and reader/writer would be arguments passed in. They belong to the client / end user, not the library.

17:57 you provide a factory type function that initializes a connection, and then they pass that back to the relevant code

17:57 Bronsa: noprompt: ATM it won't work for extend-type/extend-protocol -- that's something that I will address in the next beta but I'll have time to do it only next week

17:58 justin_smith: nothing needs to be private, or even bound globally - just make sure it belongs to the right entity

17:58 Bronsa: noprompt: the issue is interaction between the runtime namespaces of t.a.js & cljs.analyzer, there's a cljs-env->env but not the other way around

17:59 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: but what I want the library to do is to manage those objects - to read and write messages, to close and reopen it when connection breaks, to notify about errors

17:59 justin_smith: I don't want to do that outside of the library .. that's what this library is supposed to do

18:00 amalloy: TimMc: or even just check (.getCause *e), and see if it returns something

18:01 i don't actually use pst, but it seems like it's attempting to find the "root cause" exception and just print that, instead of printing the actual exception in *e

18:03 TimMc: i suspect if you wrote instead (pst *e) you would get something a bit more palatable, and if you wrote (pst *e 1000) you would get the whole thing

18:04 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: you mentioned methods before. The only reason to hide the methods is if they are hard-coded to mutate a specific object. There can be good reason to isolate a state that you abstract over, but unless you are doing it wrong, there is little reason to hide the functions.

18:06 TimMc: amalloy: Wait, why would (pst) and (pst *e) be different? I thought that was just a shortcut. :-(

18:06 amalloy: TimMc: having just read the source of pst, the default behavior strikes me as reprehensible: find the innermost wrapped exception, and print the first 12 lines of its stacktrace, removing those that are obviously just noise from the clojure runtime

18:06 TimMc: Root cause it is. Ugh.

18:06 noprompt: Bronsa: yeah, i had to do some janky stuff to get extend-protocol to work with the same code i used for reify, extend-protocol, etc.

18:06 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: yes, I get that. However a different problem is that I need to manage some mutable references - readers and writers. I'd like to hide this from api users. That's why I was asking about encapsulation.

18:07 justin_smith: and the answer with closure variables seems like a solution

18:07 TimMc: hiredman: *e is just a java.lang.IllegalArgumentException. amalloy got it -- pst uses root cause for no apparent reason.

18:07 amalloy: TimMc: apparent reason: "to be friendly-looking"

18:08 everyone complains about the "huge" "useless" stacktraces you get from java

18:08 pst gets the right answer a lot of the time, and looks friendly to beginners; i wouldn't advocate experts using it

18:09 nullptr: http://imgur.com/jacoj

18:11 TimMc: The problem is that it (or something like it) is used to print the exception at the REPL.

18:11 like (pst 0) or similar

18:14 dnolen_: Bronsa: come up w/ a patch and I will take a look at it

18:15 amalloy: TimMc: use swank; problem solved?

18:17 anyway, what repl is this? does lein repl really use pst? i thought it just printed (.getMessage *e) or something, and you have to use pst or getStackTrace yourself for details

18:17 Bronsa: dnolen_: ok

18:24 technomancy: Problem: Clojure stack traces are useless and terrible. Solution: don't print them.

18:24 next!

18:25 noprompt: technomancy: are you trying to get my attention? :P

18:26 justin_smith: thesaskwatch: for your consideration: if you give the client a handle representing a connection, then some functions that act on said connection, you don't need to worry about how those details are stored in your lib, and your client can have as many connections as they like without having to jump through any weird hoops.

18:27 thesaskwatch: justin_smith: yes, it makes perfect sense

18:27 talios: technomancy - one of my pet hates is the compiler prints them, rather than just displaying the message - that change alone would make a lot of clojure tooling nicer to deal with.

18:27 Mind you - that may have changed - been so long since I've actually done any clojure.

18:28 technomancy: talios: yeah, I'm sure all my jokes are way out of date given that the only clojure I write is on lein.

18:28 talios: technomancy - yeh? whats your main language of the day then these days?

18:29 technomancy: talios: erlang at work, C and Forth on microcontrollers for fun.

18:29 talios: forth! you old schooler

18:29 TimMc: amalloy: Yeah, lein repl. I think I would prefer .getMeessage.

18:29 xemdetia: .getMassage

18:30 TimMc: The real problem here is that pst is nice and short to type... :-P

18:30 xemdetia: That too.

18:30 amalloy: TimMc: when i write (/ 100 0) in lein repl, i see just the one-line message

18:30 technomancy: talios: to escape the tedium of C

18:30 TimMc: same here

18:30 talios: technomancy - isn't that what Go is for?

18:30 technomancy: talios: bahahah

18:30 xemdetia: Go doesn't embed nicely

18:30 amalloy: so, sounds like the behavior you said you would prefer

18:30 xemdetia: as far as I've found out

18:32 TimMc: amalloy: Except in the case of this rx exception, the root cause is bring printed instead of the outermost one.

18:32 amalloy: oh, i see

18:32 TimMc: (Exception. "outer" (Exception. "inner")) doesn't replicate this...

18:32 amalloy: TimMc: i would guess that the async/whatever nature of rx causes the exceptions to be built in a weird order

18:33 TimMc: oh hmm

18:34 technomancy: talios: the only reason I'd use a language with as primitive of a type system, bad error system, and missing interactive development system is to do work on a microcontroller, but Google Go doesn't even support that.

18:34 TimMc: You're right, that inner exception *should* be the outer one. Shenenigans somewhere around here.

18:34 amalloy: because that stacktrace is upside-down compared to what we're used to, with what i'd expect to be the root cause (your attempt to call .map wrong) is allegedly caused by some other problem

18:34 danielcompton: technomancy: javascript's got you covered there

18:35 talios: danielcompton - js on a micro?

18:36 danielcompton: talios: yep, along with primitive type system and bad error system

18:36 talios: danielcompton - excellent!

18:36 technomancy: at least js has a repl

18:39 danielcompton: technomancy: yeah, that is a +

18:39 technomancy: not that I would use it by choice in any case

18:40 talios: danielcompton - stop currying your sentences, unless you want nann with that.

18:40 oh wait - thats not an expression. wheres your ; damnit,.

18:40 darn symbol heavy languages

18:41 justin_smith: technomancy: hell, even forth has an interactive mode

18:41 TimMc: Yet again I have found myself wishing for M-x paredit-reverse sexp

18:41 technomancy: justin_smith: that's exactly why I'm using it =)

18:41 TimMc: *paredit-reverse-sexp

18:41 technomancy: noninteractive development is the worst

18:42 amalloy: TimMc: whaaaaaat. like, you wrote (ys xs f map) accidentally?

18:42 TimMc: amalloy: ->

18:42 tadni_: technomancy: Don't most work wish non-interactive dev?

18:42 xemdetia: RPN-clojure-mode

18:42 * talios looks at TimMc - wonders, then thinks "mmm, I never replied to that last email...."

18:43 TimMc: although you'd also need some unnesting functions as well to turn (baz (bar (foo))) into (-> (foo) (bar) (baz))

18:44 amalloy: yeah, that's not really reverse-sexp at all anymore. someone wrote arrowize-sexp some time ago

18:45 TimMc: And let's be fair, any time I want to reverse a sexp it's because I really want to invert the -> transform. :-)

18:47 technomancy: Tell me of this refactorer for emacs...

18:48 technomancy: TimMc: it's called concatenative programming

18:48 TimMc: *squints skeptically*

18:49 technomancy: I have no idea what you're talking about, so I made something up?

18:49 microamp: technomancy: just curious, still digging ocaml?

18:50 TimMc: technomancy: http://logs.lazybot.org/irc.freenode.net/%23clojure/2011-10-03.txt grep arrowize

18:50 technomancy: microamp: I still like it, but I don't have any current projects that are a good fit for it

18:50 TimMc: This must be it: https://github.com/clojure-emacs/clj-refactor.el

18:51 microamp: technomancy: likely old news to some, but https://github.com/artagnon/rhine

18:51 technomancy: microamp: huh, interesting

18:51 mearnsh: that sounds neat

18:51 technomancy: I've seen a few attempts at clojure-on-llvm, but implementing in ocaml will undoubtedly give a good head start =)

18:53 hiredman: just looking at the rhine readme for a few moments reveals mistunderstandings of lexical scope

18:53 amalloy: TimMc: i've just discovered i can avoid having to back up my claims if i can imitate technomancy's style well enough to choose greppable words he would have used to say the same thing three years ago

18:54 TimMc: Naming consistency is fascinating.

18:54 "What would I have called this file I wrote 5 years ago? Ah, there it is..."

18:54 xemdetia: I name all my projects based on TV shows I binge watch

18:54 I use my log of those shows to crossrefrence

18:55 amalloy: xemdetia: technomancy does a classier version of the same thing

18:55 xemdetia: sorry I am devoid of class

18:55 :(

18:55 technomancy: amalloy: I am actually not familiar with Wagner despite allusions otherwise.

18:56 amalloy: well, i meant your names from literature in general

18:56 technomancy: ah, yes

18:56 I think of it more widely as fiction in general

18:56 amalloy: hiredman: wow, you're right. i was reading it and everything was making perfect sense, and then POW, what the heck is this dynamic scope

18:57 dorkmafia: how do you print to the console with clojure?

18:58 technomancy: I wonder if the reason no one paid attention to nrepl-discover is that I broke my theme of picking an interesting name.

18:58 hiredman: amalloy: I know, and you know what is wild, last I checked no one in the entire hackernews thread mentioned it

18:59 amalloy: which is how I know it won't go anywhere, no one has actually looked it, just used saw lisp and fired back whatever their knee jerk lisp response is

18:59 looked at it

19:04 dorkmafia: is there a console/log somewhere?

19:05 technomancy: dorkmafia: println

19:07 noonian: or js/console.log

19:07 turbofail: i certainly didn't look at rhine. even if it did use proper scope, it would take many years before it could even begin to approach the JVM clojure level of usefulness

19:08 amalloy: is it a bug or a feature that (js/console.log ...) works? i would expect (.log js/console ...) to be the thing you have to do

19:09 turbofail: also i'm just generally skeptical of LLVM stuff

19:10 technomancy: isn't LLVM a bit like ZeroMQ?

19:10 "Not actually a (virtual machine|message queue) but attracts people who assume it is."

19:11 turbofail: yeah that seems rather apt

19:11 dorkmafia: ty technomancy

19:11 Bronsa: amalloy: according to dnolen_ it's expected behaviour

19:12 tbaldrid_: technomancy: turbofail: it's really that LLVM uses VM in the literal sense of the word, not in the commonly used way. It really is a Virtual Machine, just a very low level one..

19:12 justin_smith: technomancy: you could add mongodb as a db to that list

19:13 technomancy: justin_smith: hehe

19:13 mearnsh: technomancy: do you ship atreus outside the us

19:13 technomancy: mearnsh: yeah, I get a lot of international orders. shipping isn't free, but I'll just factor it in.

19:13 "a lot" being relative of course =)

19:13 mearnsh: cool. neat project

19:13 technomancy: thanks

19:15 mearnsh: I took down the option for fully-assembled boards in favour of emphasizing kits, but if you open up the web inspector you can un-invisiblize the "additional comments" section and request a fully-assembled board.

19:16 mearnsh: haha. kit's fine by me

19:54 dorkmafia: http://paste.debian.net/120125/ can someone give me some pointers on how to figure this out

19:55 hiredman: you are passing 2 args to send-message on line 83, it takes more than 2

19:55 dorkmafia: it says I'm passing two args to the send-message function but I printed out the args and I only see one

19:55 or rather in the code it looks correct

19:55 hiredman: the def for send-message there takes 4 arguments

19:55 dorkmafia: hiredman: do you see the println of the args though?

19:56 amalloy: dorkmafia: look at line 10 of your paste. you call send-message with two args

19:56 conn, and (create-reply ...)

20:01 tadni_: So, it appears cider-scratch doesn't jack into a cider repl ... you'd think it'd do so automatically. :^P

20:01 Not a big deal, but still a minor thing I'd think would be automated.

20:01 dorkmafia: amalloy doesn't it depend on what the output of (create-reply .. ) is?

20:01 amalloy: no

20:01 tadni_: Well I guess a nrepl instance, not a "cider repl". :^P

20:02 amalloy: (create-reply ...) is exactly one object, no matter what. it can't be three objects. if you pass it, and one other object, to a function expecting four args, then you are passing only two args

20:02 dorkmafia: amalloy: https://github.com/dedeibel/xmpp-clj/blob/master/src/xmpp_clj/bot.clj#L70 this code works though all i did was upgrade the underlying jars

20:03 hiredman: dorkmafia: what makes you think it works?

20:03 amalloy: dorkmafia: the only way that code fails to throw an exception is if nobody runs it

20:03 hiredman: (that definitely doesn't)

20:04 dorkmafia: ok

20:04 which means it's all horribly out of date

20:04 thank you guys ;)

20:04 :)

20:05 hiredman: that would never have worked on any version of clojure

20:06 dorkmafia: ah i upgraded the underlying smack jar

20:06 hiredman: that wouldn't change anything

20:06 the clojure source code is plain incorrect

20:06 has nothing to do with smack

20:06 amalloy: the xmpp code you linked to is not self-consistent. it can't run ever. i'm guessing it was in the middle of a rewrite that didn't get finished

20:07 dorkmafia: yah i'm rewriting it now to also have the latest smack jar

20:07 i'm going to change the name instead of forking

20:07 my working name for it so far is smackulre

20:08 amalloy: yeah, the last commit on that file, https://github.com/dedeibel/xmpp-clj/commit/d089da15cfa76d344752d748d93781646ea768e7, looks like it changed from working code to non-working code, and is labeled "cleanup"

20:08 dorkmafia: but it's my first time writing clojure so it's a bit rough

20:16 hiredman: xmpp as a protocol is pretty terrible, so that is going to be rough too

20:17 streaming xml, not exchanging xml documents, but your entire interaction with the server is a single xml document

20:17 insane

20:51 celwell: I'm using a simple "lein ring server", and plaintext responses are sent quickly, but I'm now testing a more involved bootstrap theme and it takes about 15 seconds to load! I can load the page up also instantly off my WAMP server (I'm on Windows), but the ring server is way too slow to develop efficiently. Any ideas? Has anyone experienced this? (I feel a lot of friction with the Clojure workflow, the simplicity of

20:51 PHP page reloads is beckoning me back to the mire of imperativity and state.)

20:51 beamso: i'm developing off ring and not seeing those types of delays

20:52 but it really depends on how your application is structured

20:52 i'd look at the network tab of the dev tools in chrome to see what is taking so long

20:54 justin_smith: celwell: are you testing the transfer times from the server, or total page render time?

20:56 and yeah, 15 seconds is kind of absurd - I can do complex pages with content from a db, templated using arbitrary clojure code in my template bodies, using partial templates that get combined at runtime, and have a local transfer time under 100ms

20:56 (this is with smart caching on the db side etc. but still...)

20:57 celwell: justin_smith: transfer time, I'm looking at chrome dev tools. I took out enlive templating and it's just the static resources.

20:58 justin_smith: 15 seconds for static resources?

20:58 hiredman: lein ring server injects various bits of middleware, so who knows what is happening

20:58 amalloy: does your network stack use baling wire for the loopback interface?

20:58 akurilin: Can someone much smarter than me tell me how you folks deal with email abuse? E.g. I let our users share some stuff with random people on the Internet through email, how do I prevent them from trolling us and abusing the system? Do I just count the # of emails they send in a day?

20:58 celwell: amalloy: ha i'm running locally

20:59 amalloy: celwell: right, the loopback interface is localhost. thus the joke

20:59 justin_smith: celwell: that's what loopback means

20:59 maybe your fs is mounted on a tape drive, and it takes that long for the ring server plugin to check for file changes to reload?

21:00 nfs over an analog modem?

21:00 amalloy: justin_smith: better yet, sshfs

21:00 justin_smith: over analog modem

21:01 amalloy: back in my clueless youth i tried working remotely via sshfs, instead of sshing to my work machine. took like...minutes and minutes to start lein repl

21:04 celwell: I think if I uberjar every change I can upload to aws and run from there all within 13s, saving 2s.

21:06 justin_smith: celwell: if you use a tool like yourkit or even jvisualvm (which comes with the jdk) it shouldn't take long to figure out what is making your requests take that long

21:06 celwell: The weird thing is that the latency is spread out over the all the resources (it's not like it's a 15s wait and then everything dumps)

21:06 justin_smith: also try using lein run instead of lein ring server

21:08 celwell: the two times I recall that kind of performance drain with ring were 1) someone put multiple calls to eval in a template renderer and 2) someone tried to use bcrypt for basic auth for each request

21:09 celwell: justin_smith: I thought it might be enlive, but when I just pipe it statically through (route/resources "/") it's the same.

21:09 amalloy: you're probably doing one stupid thing at the top level of your handler, something you don't need to do at all like writing 10MB of debug output, and that happens for each request the client makes

21:10 justin_smith: celwell: profile it - there is a free profiler with the jvm, it's really the best way

21:10 (it's not an excellent profiler, but it works)

21:10 amalloy: justin_smith: guessing is more fun. if you're right, you look like a genius

21:10 justin_smith: lol

21:11 celwell: grep your code for calls to (Thread/sleep 15000)

21:12 jtackett: anyone know the regex for a double dash?

21:13 justin_smith: ,(re-matches #"--" "--") ; like this?

21:13 clojurebot: "--"

21:13 jtackett: ya but that woun’t match like the combined one

21:13

21:14 justin_smith: ,(re-matches #"—" "—")

21:14 clojurebot: "—"

21:14 jtackett: haha ya just realized it when I typed it

21:14 justin_smith: that's called EM DASH btw

21:15 https://img.4plebs.org/boards/pol/image/1403/06/1403061838700.png there is no easy regex for this

21:16 mearnsh: (dec justin_smith)

21:16 lazybot: ⇒ 75

21:16 mearnsh: bad joke penalty :)

21:16 justin_smith: heh, I earned it

21:17 mearnsh: wasn't sure if dec was implemented

21:17 justin_smith: $karma so

21:17 lazybot: so has karma -33.

21:17 justin_smith: heh

21:17 mearnsh: haha, i see

21:18 xeqi: $karma MaxErrmin

21:18 lazybot: MaxErrmin has karma -1000.0.

21:18 justin_smith: lol

21:18 (dec MaxErrmin)

21:18 lazybot: ⇒ -1001.0

21:19 justin_smith: it's still floating point, of course

21:20 mearnsh: wow what did MaxErrmin do

21:20 justin_smith: I think amalloy was messing around with the lazybot internals

21:21 mearnsh: oh yeah http://logs.lazybot.org/irc.freenode.net/%23clojure/2014-07-31.txt

21:22 amalloy: xeqi applied one of the many lazybot security holes he keeps in his back pocket to set it to 1000. i countered by setting it to -1000, but since i did it through the mongodb shell it turned into a float

21:23 justin_smith: thanks for nothing, javascript

21:23 mearnsh: that sounds like a lousy shell

21:23 justin_smith: mearnsh: so unlike the other marvelous properties of mongodb

21:23 amalloy: it's good practice for people who frequently forget how to type NumberLong

21:24 justin_smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjOZtWZ56lc

21:25 celwell: hmm... I killed all my java processes and then did "lein ring server", and the first load was sub-second; I pressed refresh and then back to 15s loads.

21:26 justin_smith: "it's time for wangernum, let's rotate the board"

21:30 * danielcompton puts paper bag over face

21:30 amalloy: the first mitchell & webb sketch i saw was "A bigger spoon". it's quite amusing, and i can claim it's on-topic for #clojure because it reminds me of spec/requirements discussions with users: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hu9nhExp5KI

21:31 justin_smith: danielcompton: the bag says "NO" on it, right?

21:32 danielcompton: justin_smith: lets rotate the bag!

21:32 * danielcompton spind 360 degrees

21:32 justin_smith: heh

21:32 danielcompton: justin_smith: yes it says NO

21:34 akurilin: Random question: say you need to send bulk email. Assuming you don't care about the result right there and then, do you just send them to an agent and have that take care of sending them off asynchronously?

21:34 The challenge there would be to make sure you're not suddenly failing everything without knowing about it

21:34 justin_smith: akurilin: you can set the error function for an agent

21:35 amalloy: akurilin: an agent doesn't make sense to me, unless you want to be careful to send exactly one email at a time, with no parallelism

21:35 akurilin: right, I'd have to make sure to log and track that

21:35 amalloy: what would you recommend I use?

21:36 amalloy: i mean, it depends on your requirements, but an executor with its own threadpool (stuff from java.util.concurrent) is rarely far wrong

21:36 justin_smith: akurilin: what about an array of futures, and then you don't return until all features are completed (and handle all the errors as need be)

21:36 amalloy: $google raek exectuors in clojure

21:36 lazybot: [raek: Executors in Clojure] http://blog.raek.se/2011/01/24/executors-in-clojure/

21:37 amalloy: wow, is that really 3 1/2 years old? i'm getting old

21:38 akurilin: oh cool, thanks for the link

21:41 nullptr: celwell: have you tried in multiple browsers? i've seen chrome get weird a few times when its cache is out of sync

21:43 celwell: nullptr: thanks, but no difference in firefox

21:46 nullptr: are you accessing your machine by ip address or hostname?

21:47 celwell: localhost:3000

21:47 nullptr: try 127.0.0.1 ... just for fun

21:48 localhost could map to ::1 and cause some kind of weird delay before reverting to ipv4 #speculation #reaching

21:48 arrdem: anyone worked with pattern expressions in Clojure?

21:49 I'm aware of core.match but I was wondering if there were other games in twon

21:49 *town

21:49 celwell: nullptr: no dice. i'm starting to think ring server is just actually that slow (at least on my machine)

21:50 nullptr: celwell: doubtful ... smells like networking ... you could try on a VM to confirm

21:50 justin_smith: celwell: have you tried profiling yet?

21:55 celwell: justin_smith: yes, but not able to discern much (might be my fault). here is the log dump if you care to import it: https://gist.github.com/celwell/eed6a902c26e4bbf36f8

21:55 kenrestivo: turn ipv6 off.

21:55 celwell: a lot of time is spent on "sun.rmi.transport.tcp.TCPTransport$ConnectionHandler.run()" but I'm assume the problem is merely nested in there, not that itself

21:56 seabre: Does anyone use midje/lein-midje and environ/lein-environ together? When I run lein midje, my tests use my dev environment variables, not my test ones.

21:56 The workaround is to just to put them in .lein-env, but seems like I shouldn't have to do that.

21:57 jtackett: dumb question, but what's the best way to convert a lazy seq to a string

21:58 amalloy: celwell: try turning off the auto-reload feature in lein-ring. there's a lot of stuff in there that looks like searching the classpath for clojure files and checking if they've been modified

21:58 holo: jtackett (apply str my-seq)

21:58 celwell: jtackett: (holo's answer) but if it's infinite you need to (take) some first

21:59 jtackett: that was inefective

21:59 can’t just apply str

21:59 cfleming: arrdem: depends what you're doing, have you seen seqex?

21:59 seabre: (str my-seq) doesn't work either?

21:59 jtackett: nope

21:59 cfleming: arrdem: for general matching AFAIK core.match is the only option

21:59 celwell: jtackett: (doall) first?

21:59 jtackett: haha tried that oo

22:00 too

22:00 arrdem: cfleming: mmkay. thanks.

22:00 cfleming: arrdem: seqex is really great for macro stuff, I use something similar internally in Cursive.

22:01 arrdem: cfleming: yeah I remember it from the illuminated macros talk

22:01 cfleming: arrdem: but it's not very general.

22:01 jtackett: nvm got it

22:02 amalloy: jtackett: (pr-str my-seq)

22:03 arrdem: cfleming: ah see what I've done is built essentially a database of decomposed maps and I'm playing with a querry language based on structural pattern matching over maps in the database.

22:03 cfleming: I was wondering if there was other prior art mod core.match which I need to play with anyway.

22:04 cfleming: arrdem: not that I know of - I think core.match is your option.

22:04 arrdem: if you wanted to do something tricky you could use automata, maybe? Depends how complex your matching language needs to be.

22:05 celwell: amalloy: wow, that was right on. {:auto-reload? false} is giving me sub-second loads consistently. hmm... but I would like to have auto-reload... does this mean I need to terminate the ring server every change?

22:05 amalloy: celwell: just run your server from inside nrepl/cider/swank or something, and reload it by hand when you change things

22:06 that's a much better dev setup than lein ring server anyway

22:08 beamso: by "reload it by hand when you change things", is there stuff that will automatically get picked up or does it always require that manual operation?

22:09 amalloy: beamso: if you make a change in foo.clj, then C-c C-k in that buffer (or whatever is equivalent for your editor tooling)

22:10 beamso: okay

22:10 i'm using cursive

22:11 justin_smith: celwell: you are spending a lot of time on file-seq

22:12 celwell: justin_smith: is ring's :auto-reload? doing that?

22:12 amalloy: justin_smith: already fixed that

22:12 justin_smith: OK, I didn't see all the scrollback

22:13 amalloy: justin_smith: i'm gonna take credit for guessing: "you're probably doing one stupid thing at the top level of your handler, something you don't need to do at all"

22:14 justin_smith: hah

22:14 amalloy: (as it turns out, scanning the entirety of your bootstrap resource files to see if any of them are clojure files that need to be reloaded)

22:14 justin_smith: ahh, that would probably have an effect, wouldn't it

22:16 celwell: amalloy: i see... makes sense. thanks for pinpointing the problem. i owe you a beer or coffee if you want it. i'm five minutes from santa monica

22:17 amalloy: celwell: hey, any time. i don't do this for the free coffee :)

22:27 cddr: Do clojure methods have anything like CLOS's eql specializer?

22:30 justin_smith: cddr: functions are only trivially equal, and methods aren't even first class

22:30 technomancy: cddr: multimethod dispatch uses isa? and associated hierarchies, so they can be customized with derive.

22:30 that said, this is very rarely used

22:30 justin_smith: technomancy: oh yeah, that is probably closer to what is meant here

22:31 technomancy: clojure gets equality right out of the box for the most part, so you don't have to override it much

22:31 justin_smith: technomancy: the ability to dispatch using an arbitrary function with defmethod is kind of a superset of that feature anyway

22:31 technomancy: indeed

22:32 cddr: Thanks for the food for thought
