For general news about / things happening in other languages.
Seems like an alternative to Rust in some cases:
from project’s github:
"WARNING! This is a research project … Don’t use it for anything important!"
Hard to imagine the use case
Yep, I guessed that somebody will come up with this one.
To me, research/evaluation is an use case on its own, plus such sentences are often written to protect the author from annoying issues.
In principle do I mean that it is an alternative due its “no GC” strategy, which is quite rare.
You might like to add “in the future” to my sentence.
What a combination
But I assume usage of this is similar to sql lite -> embeded database
- Datatomic is made for cloud
- Datascript is made to be embedded in web applications
That sounds very interesting. Makes sense given the scope of a desktop application. Would like to see some more examples of data modeling using it though. Has anyone here tried it?
Yes, they develop it to include it in Mozillas Firefox
This is a F# webframework, which is accordingly to its developer ‘heavily inspired by Phoenix’
Very fascinating, if you ask me:
ML like Rust which is embeddable
I guess we’ve now come full circle, kind of: Rust was originally made in OCaml (and actually was much more similar to OCaml than it is now) and now we have a very ML-like language made in Rust.
It does tickle the right nose hairs, I agree. They’ve made an impressive amount of work on this, so I guess it’s not just a toy either.
I hope they adopt it for Amethyst, the data oriented game engine in Rust.
This is by the way, from where I know the language.
One immutable map which makes a full database.
The MLton project pioneered the “monomorphizing” compiler.
Normally functions like map : (a -> b) -> List a -> List b produce generic code that can work on any list, but if you happen to know that it is used as map : (Int -> Int) -> List Int -> List Int you could use a denser memory representation for the List Int, leading to quite serious performance improvements. Less indirection and less garbage generated!
I think I’ve mentioned it before on this forum, but I think this crowd would appreciate Pony.
Yeah, I just read their homepage (again), inspired by one post here in the forum.
Its very interesting how they mix OO with FP, especially since it seems that obvious that I ask myself why nobody else has done it before so?
Weak… Real active text is turning the trix editor into a collaborative text editor backed by Operational Transformation or CRDT implemented in Elixir and which communicates with the frontend using Phoenix Channels.
JIT in Ruby sounds interesting.
Rails 6 coming soon…
Some nice additions there, Action Mailbox looks really handy:
Action Mailbox routes incoming emails to controller-like mailboxes for processing in Rails. It ships with ingresses for Amazon SES, Mailgun, Mandrill, Postmark, and SendGrid. You can also handle inbound mails directly via the built-in Exim, Postfix, and Qmail ingresses. The foundational work on Action Mailbox was done by George Claghorn and yours truly.
