Nothing you can't do that I can't do with raw machine code, that doesn't make it a good idea.

And I'm a big fan of FP, but when you're working in PHP OOP is what you've got, FP support is poor without really bending over backwards. Yes you can do it but it doesn't really make sense.

And besides, this was in the context of namespaces, which are _still_ a good feature even if you never write a single class.

>>52681256
Well it's more I'm designing it now and that is what the client is looking for. It is just a list but it has to fit into the bootstrap html accordion structure. I'm not really concerned about rendering the html after the list is parsed. I'm just not sure the best way to store the data so that I can query it as a string and parse it. I explained to him that the best approach would be to store each part in the list as it's own table entry and then map those entries to the parts that they are associated with, but he said he would rather copy and paste then enter each part in the list. I could theoretically parse the string that I get from the textarea and then put each part into a table, but it would take a lot of time to set up, and I don't know how I would update the parts listings if changes needed to be made. Storing the info as an array seems like a good approach, but since the "array" would just be a string anyway until I parsed it, I figured why not make the string easier to parse than a string that is written like an array. That approach still seems weird to me though.

I'm under an NDA so I can't, as much as I'd like to outsource

>>52682997
lol, I was a contrib on the project that preceded this one. There are a number of problems with frankenstiening django into an async framework. The most pressing is it's easy to subtly invoke something synchronous and end up absolutely crucifying your perf (you lock you singular server thread until the call returns). It doesn't help that Python's C interop means monkeypatching ala gevent will silently fail to patch libs that are totally opaque to you. Mind you, the same thing can happen with node but it's not as common and node has been dealing seriously with the issues async execution poses for stack traces/debugging for a lot longer and has better tooling around it.

Also uWSGI's websockets performance has been pretty poor relative to gunicorn (or pretty much anything) for years.

I do at my dayjob. Frankly I hate it, but I've had a grudge against java for a long time. It would help if I used STS or something to get the static analysis everyone always talks about but I do like an 80/20 front/backend work so I've never felt the motivation to wait out the 30~60 seconds it takes to open the project with a god damned 6 month old i7 and SSD.

Also every time someone references a "web application context" a pure function dies.

>>52683200
>I just don' think Node will actually be usable in a serous environment until it coalesces a bit. The node ecosystem is so fractured at this point it's ridiculous.
I'm split really. On the one hand there's a lot of junk in NPM, and a number of things don't interop well but as the years go on I'm increasingly questioning the wisdom of the "big framework" approach. I like working with Django, but swapping out a component is always a maintenance liability. If you look at clojure's webdev situation there is no real single framework, every project is the amalgamation of a lot of generally small parts and it actually works really well. Even Holovaty has repeatedly said he wished people would stop asking "how do I do X in Django" when they should be asking "how do I do X in python" which I think is symptomatic of the monolithic web framework approach.

When I look at the node ecosystem I see the potential for that "lot of small, independent parts" setup, express doesn't really restrict your choice in pretty much anything else, npm would seem to support all the necessary things to make it work. I agree it's not there yet, maybe it never will be, but I think at least the potential for that nice composability is there.

>>52683218
The former I guess so at least there won't be the temptation to try to eval it but I think something like JSON would give you both the structure and safety while sparing you the exercise in parsing a custom string format.

triple equals is almost always correct, it you're actually depending on type coercion then you're probably doing something wrong and if you're not you can save yourself some bugs by avoiding it. This is like the most commonly used linter option.

ehh, it's not as big of a deal as people make it out to be but it's worth learning the difference. Type coercion will bite you in the ass one day, as it does to us all, plus knowing the difference is a kind of shibboleth in the community. People have made a sport of trying to abuse it and other JS quirks to form the most counterintuitive expressions and thing taking them to people to see if they can figure it out by squinting at them. It's kinda fun actually.

Imagine making a pretty word document. That's frontend. You use divs (formerly tables) to sort everything and make a nice page out of lego blocks with it. You use html/css/javascript for that.

Backend is excel. You put stuff into tables and get them out of it and paste them into your word document to get dynamic content. You can use any language for that, but php is the most common thanks to prebuild CMS systems.

I don't think anyone who needs to use CSS to make a living actually enjoys it. The best you get is a weird sort of comfortable where it's all you know. Like when you've been with your girlfriend for a long time and kinda hate her but don't really know what else you'd do with your time and money. Plus it there will always be CSS N+1 to cuck you with features you can't use yet.

It's interesting that every proposed solution to the CSS problem is a preprocessor that basically extends plain old CSS syntax, no one has tried to replace or build on top of the classical box model as far as I know, despite us all knowing how bad it is.

Most languages start out as "science languages" for political reasons within academia and industry. It almost always fades away as soon as the language starts getting mainstream appeal because the simple fact that scientific commuting is the vast minority of all computing, at least by community representation. You can see this with python. Django has like 30% more commits than numpy despite existing for considerably less time. Of course that's a rough gauge on community use but look at almost any community metric and you'll see something similar.

If you're not already on a Linux environment get on one. OSX doesn't really count because some of the C libraries you'll want to use won't be on there. K&R is the classic and obvious choice, but the Learn C the Hard Way tutorial is really good too. Some good projects to aim for would be to make your own shell and your own compiler. Make sure you really drill down the C fundamentals because you need to be a little more careful than other languages.

>>52687900
>So I feel like I know HTML and CSS pretty well, is there like a checklist of things I should know to make sure I actually know it?
You probably know it. "I know HTML and CSS" is roughly equivalent to "I know how to write a make file" in the C world. Something you need to know how to do (or find something else to do it for you) but it's hard to say "what do I need to do to make sure I know make". Well you've got to make something, which means you've got to learn C. Likewise to have a firm grip on frontend you really do need to know JS, every "test project" I can think of requires at least some JS. Something like being able to program a simple carousel from scratch (a terrible design, but something that touches most the key things a dev needs to do) would be a good interview question and a good way to tell if you're fluent or not.
>>
>>52688058
Take that with a grain of salt. There's some good stuff in there but a lot of it isn't really conducive to learning. It's one of those things to keep in your back pocket and look at later after you've gotten a lot of C down. Then worry about it.

best practices are the hardest part because there isn't a single resource that lists them all, you just have to learn from reading code, also conference talks are a great resource for that. But yeah thats the main distinguishing factors between a good developer and a shit one; if you're going to be doing it for a living you're expected to know best practices and the more advanced topics like architecture and the logic of the code.

I'm not sure, I haven't seen a lot of great learning resources. Codeacademy is really hand holdy and teaches some questionable stuff.

I dont have much experience in that regard but I don't think you'll have much trouble, especially since you know a much lower level language like C. Just learn some basic javascript (or even advanced since you already know most of the concepts behind the code) and you'll should be fine

It usage numbers have been going down for awhile.

You can have a grid system in more lightweight frameworks. The responsive grid that just werks is the main reason for its popularity.

The components it comes with are only useful for product landing pages or shit like that. For web apps, most of them are worthless. You end up writing so much own CSS that you begin to wonder why you don't just use a simple grid framework and make EVERYTHING yourself.

Well, that or you use something that comes with more suitable components.

And the third alternative, which is what an unfortunately large number of developers do, is to just use bootstraps components, no matter how unfitting they are for the task at hand
>>
>>52688811

Bootstrap is a framework with a grid and predefined classes, that's why its hated. It's for lazy developers, literally the dev equivalent of going to web.com or whatever its called and making one of those "create your own website using drag and drop"

its web development for kids

but it's the arguments that you were giving me that deserve replies like that

"oh but it's for LAZY people" is a failure of understanding why the tool exists in the first place. I'm not saying "popular = good", but if something's popular then there has to be doing at least *something* right to warrant the attention

and there's this sort of obsession in some sections of programming to completely shun anything popular or time-saving. i know it because i've been part of it, too -- especially when i was younger and getting into programming more, so sometimes i feel like that sort of response is that same kind of knee-jerk reaction to anything popular

i understand now though that there are other grid frameworks that come with less baggage and manage to solve the same issues -- that's a better argument.

So instead of taking the arguments AS THEY ARE, you had to inject your own view into them so they fit into your narrow worldview? I already stated, BS bogs down web design by encouraging developers to be extremely lazy. Instead you take this as "U JUS DUN WANA USE IT BECUZ ITS POPULARS"

Teams create their own frameworks all the time, others utilize better frameworks that aren't BS. Don't know where you're going with this.
>>
>>52689073
>especially when i was younger and getting into programming more
That's the sad reality of it. Some actual devs have some fairly minor gripes with bootstrap (not very semantic unless you use it with a preprocessor and mixins which no one does, carousel is a stupid feature to put in a CSS framework) and suddenly it becomes a way for insecure people to try and fit in with the cool kids. But like you see on /g/, it just gets drawn out into the extreme parody of itself. Cargo culting at its worst.
>>
>>52689157
>BS bogs down web design by encouraging developers to be extremely lazy

that right there is A SHITTY ARGUMENT, you FUCKING IMBECILE

that's exactly the argument that's been used, time and time again throughout the history of programming, to shun anything new because it prevented them from building their special snowflake libraries that did the same basic shit, but buggy and unreliable. i know it now because i've had to use libraries from people who actually believed the apache java libs are bloated and full of cruft

explain to me why bootstrap is bad and what alternatives there are to solve THE SAME PROBLEMS without resorting to "because it makes people lazy, boo hoo, I better spent hours writing my shitty bug-ridden framework that no one on my team knows how to use and has to waste hours fixing"

>No anon, developers don't generate any turnover when they learn new things, you will continue to write web applications like it's 2007. 1.7% of all people still use the now abandoned IE 8, so everything must be compatible with it. And now write a new bootstrap theme by editing the css file directly (no, seriously. We do that. You have no idea how inconsistent and buggy most of our applications look because of that).

(Actually, it's worse, because we are including our bootstrap-themes into the document like this: First import bootstrap, then import our companies default theme, then import the theme you want to use for the application and then import a css file that contains styles exclusive for the current application. And of course the theme must be changeable by administrators of the website, so your application specific CSS must look good with any kind of theme - even though that's impossible due to the lack of variables. And let's not forget how the margins and paddings get totally fucked up)

Somebody asked when you would use prototyping and what the point of it was in the previous thread but I never got around to responding.

Prototyping makes for fasting loading objects. They have the same result of adding the functionality in the object itself except that they're not loaded with every new instance, only when they're called.

So for example

function Car() {
this.color = "red";
this.make = "ford";
}

Car.prototype = {
drive: function() {...}
park: function() {...}
turnLeft: function() {...}
turnRight: function() {...}
}

car1 = new Car();



instantiating car1 only loads the properties and makes a link with the prototype
>>
>>52690437

...adding them inside the object itself would mean that every single instance has the functions in memory, even ones that are never going to use them. So if you have an object with functionality that's always going to be used, feel free to just include them inside the object itself; prototyping is only an optimization.

I have a few different resources and I'm considering throwing them all right on the root domain so it would be something like example.com/username and example.com/resource_title instead of example.com/user/username and example.com/resource/title. I'm worried about name clashes though.

Thoughts?

Here's my shitty hack: Add
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3">

to the header to refresh every 3 seconds.
>>
>>52690772
Is there any reason not to structure them like /user/username? It seems like the sane approach. It's probably not a security risk for a clash to happen but resolution order should be deterministic so someone's eventually going to get their thing made unaccessible.

Thanks. How about filtering with numbers? For ages 15+ I got this..

age = params.age.rstrip('-').rstrip('+')
if not age.isnumeric():
return
age = int(age)
if params.age.endswith('-'):
filter = User.age < age
elif params.age.endswith('+')
filter = User.age > age
else:
filter = User.age == age
users = users.filter(filter)


It works but it's a bit verbose.
>>
>>52690822
...and then you would call the url with ?age=15+
>>
>>52690808
Users can create reviews of the resources, so it'd be cool to have something like example.com/username/super-long-title-of-a-resource-here for reviews.

Clashes could be worked around by appending a number to the duplicate.
>>
>>52689747

Brackets works brilliantly for me, the only problem I've found is that they read url's in a fucking up way but just preface them all with /./ or /../

>>52690785

that actually pretty cool, didn't even know that was possible.

setting up live-reload in a gulp/grunt watch task takes 5 minutes and then it just runs in the background

if you use gulp on bigger projects then you already have everything installed globally that you need anyway

>Our front-end guy refuses to use frameworks and just builds his own based on what the project calls for.

a guy after my own heart, I do this too, not for performance reasons, but because I don't enjoy spending most of the project overriding default bootstrap crap to fit a design that doesn't adhere to bootstraps conventions, I'd rather just do it myself

With a shopping cart? Is it responsive?
I'm afraid it's the future.

I see a ton of local businesses using that kind of thing and it's ugly.

Is there a list of classes you should use when making your own framework for a project? I know its usually based on what you actually need but is there like a common list of classes? So for example a class that targets buttons, input fields, ...

What text editor do you guys recommend on OSX?

I currently use just the built in TextEdit program, which is nice since it saves everything instantly. But I want something with syntax highlighting and the ability to collapse html elements/js functions or whatever. I don't really care about any other features.

Is Atom any good?
>>
>>52691139
I know only of shopify but it has a monthly fee.

Damn this cellphone keeps coming up as banned for some reason. Some local dick was apparently posting bad porns from dozens of phone ips.

Atom is slow, use Sublime
>>
>>52691245
sublime isn't designed for front end or even web dev in general, use brackets.
>>
>>52691256
Why isn't it designed for frontend?
>>
>>52691285

It doesn't have live preview and if you use it its obvious that its geared toward compiled lower level languages

How would I go about replacing an asp.net system with JavaScript/node/Json? I know I'm being pretty vague but I know a company who's using really old technology for their MVC and want to catch up to modern stuff.
>>
>>52691022
The obvious answer for that is
>well my usual rate is $100/hour but I guess I can make an exception and drop it to 80 for you.

>>52691370
If live preview is that important to you isn't there plugins for that in sublime. And as already discussed in the thread making your own watcher script isn't that hard.

As to the original question evil emacs.
>>
>>52687040
>>52687156

look into sass, and then gulp to process the files on save

variables, mixins and nesting is much easier/efficient

couldnt imagine working without it now
>>
>>52691509

It isn't as good as the one that comes with brackets. The brackets native one opens a new window, automatically edits it without refresh (at least for css where its most useful) and not only that but it has a live highlighting feature where whatever selector/element you click in the code gets a highlight around it so you don't have to remember every name, you can just click anywhere in .btn-small-content and it will highlight it in the preview. It doesn't seem like much but holy shit its incredibly useful.

I actually prefer sublime and spent a lot of time trying to set it up with some of the brackets features but realized that the opposite was easier. Just install a minimap extension and the spacegray theme and you're better off in every single regard.
>>
>>52690822
Yeah, that looks good. There's some syntactic sugar you could use to pack it into fewer lines but it would come at the cost of readability IMO so that's perfectly acceptable. If you have multiple numeric fields the obvious move would be to abstract that logic into a function or validator class or something, whatever makes sense in the context of the code you already have.
>>
>>52691717
Thanks anon. I was really unsure if that was the best way of doing it.

react, no contest

>>52690437
that's true, but it's better to move away from "this", "new" and "prototype" in js completely, towards simple objects and functions. there's no reason to complect functions with data

>>52691954
These are necessary for a library I use.

Thanks for the suggestions. I downloaded Brackets, since I prefer something with a GUI, and Sublime is $

It's working pretty well so far

it's been trendy to hate since wordpress came out

>>52689880
replace it with what? the other mature scripting language designed for the specific purpose of running web applications, with native interfaces to almost every API you'd need?

not saying it's great, major php projects like phpbb and wordpress tend toward redundant code logic with lots of vulns

on the other hand, a better designed language like python/ruby seems to need a whole framework to put it on the web

Is there some website that lists other peoples projects they made before they got their first junior front end job? I'd like to compare myself against something else to see if my projects are any good.

If you need to ask that the answer is no you're stuff isn't as good

>>52692132
Make pretty parking pages of you're a designer.

Make Twitter/okcupid clones with bootstrap themes if you're a dev.

You will know if you're good if you get a job. Don't bother freelancing unless you want to make 3.50 an hour.

I don't even into wat. I didn't even close the browser when I left. It's been sitting here open the whole time and now the code that was working perfectly before is suddenly broken (in every browser I've tried too).

Is .one a viable domain name? It's owned by one.com and used fairly often for a new gtld (almost 50k domains registered already).

I registered a cool three letter domain with my name. But I don't want a domain that could be discontinued in 10 years. So I'm doubting if I should use it or not.

I've got the same problem with .nu. As that's from an Island with 1500 people. It's backed by the registry of .SE so they should be fine, unless the Island loses it's independence.

>specific purpose of running web applications
strike that and I can name three off the bat. Why do you need your language to be expressly for a singular domain again?
>>
>>52687045
>>52685870
That's great. I'm mostly focused on enterprise development and learn Java/groovy + Spring because I really love the language, but I'm the kind of guy who can't stop when achieved something, so I moved to php but... that's pure shit. Seriously, even the php frameworks are weird as fuck. After trying python I loved its syntax and the contrast with Java is huge (I love both languages though). I'm like 5 hours away from finishing my core python studies, so I'd move to django since I feel it's gonna be fun and useful.

Powershell is as good as bash/bash alternative. The only issue is the verbosity, but can't help it since it just follows .net convention

Use ConEmu, and configure it to your liking.

Want some company? ;)
>>
>>52693918
When I was in internships, the only reason they hired me was because I knew Java. The company payed for a Java + Spring development training and the guy teaching us was a very distinguished professor from a top college in my country and he recommended me to further develop my Java skills. The guy who was in charge of me while in internships (now my senior) has IBM Java certifications (he knows lots of shit) and he also recommended me the same.

So yeah, I'm a masochist because actual bright and successful people (who I respect much) tried to set a good path for my future based on their experiences.

For the record, I'm into sadism, so you were close with that one.

>>52694364
It could be worse, anon. Like doing your website in java
>>
>>52694364
PHP is fine. It works well enough with jQuery if you ever want to improve things.

Also if it takes off then you can just hire people to do it for you.
>>
>>52694187
Anon, that's extremely basic, you take code inside a textarea and render it elsewhere on the page. I did that when I tried to learn webdev by myself back when I was 16, I'm pretty sure you can do it too.

>>52694330
Luckily for you, the language itself is improving. Java 8 was a step toward the good path.

>>52694364
Don't worry, you will hate PHP soon enough, just when you'll start looking at saner alternatives.
>>
>>52694624
Ok, I think I was just overestimating it. I'll do it!
>>
>>52694412
There is none. Read SICP and transliterate into JS. This is how you learn any programming language.
>>
New thread needed.

How about a competition to help build portfolios? Logo, design and server-side.

Did it in C#, the code is smooth, it works quickly (less than a millisecond) most of the time and the only questionable thing is the mass of ajax and repeated code in my JavaScript.

>>52694364
Ask yourself why you chose PHP in the first place. You can choose any language you like to replace it, only html, css and JavaScript are essential no matter how you choose to manage your project.
