why would you be pulling from Heroku?
 
@Downgoat No, Heroku is pulling from GitHub. Except they're not pulling, only cloning the files.
oh no I need a namespace and phase is taken
 
so why does it matter if .git and/or git data is deleted?
 
@phase phasesaber?
jadon420?
 
@Downgoat I need to pull the git submodules because Heroku doesn't pull them with the automatic deploys like it does with the manual pushing.
@AlexA. It's <project>-<namespace>.rhcloud.com, so that'd be o-phasesaber.rhcloud.com, and that's super long.
 
o-shit.rhcloud.com
 
12:05 AM
I don't want to do that as I might ant to create other applications on OpenShift in the future, and they'd go under the shit namespace.
 
@phase oh, ok. Couldn't you store all your submodules in a different folder/file and then have a script to setup git and install submodules?
 
@Downgoat The folder/file is the git submodule, and the script is git submodule update --init. If Heroku doesn't support it, then I can't use them.
 
Have the script install git submodule?
 
@Downgoat It has git on the server, it just doesn't have the git data for my repo. I'd have to clone the repo in a subdirectory, move the git data to the main directory, and then issue the command.
 
All right, back
@Downgoat Can I see your code for Cheesecloth? I'm pretty concerned about the potential for a code injection if you're doing anything significant in bash
 
12:09 AM
think we should close this
oops
 
wrong copy pasta
 
oh never mind
 
dennis already closed it
 
12:10 AM
this guy is a fraud
he copy/pastes challenges to outsource the solution to codegolf
 
@Downgoat Oh, all right. That's fine
also you really should use JSON
 
@quartata json won't work very well
json sucks
 
Why? JS has built in support for it
 
TOML please
 
@quartata that is not a good reason to use JSON...
 
12:13 AM
JS has support for everything since that's the only thing people code in.
 
@orlp We deleted both
 
JS has a built-in for shitty type casting, that doesn't mean it's good
 
@Downgoat In this case it is.
Who gives a shit about what the config format looks like as long as it's easy to use
 
@QPaysTaxes They were in the comments
 
@quartata we're using INI because I spent time to make it O^O
 
12:14 AM
FWIW INI is fugly
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ok but still
 
Feature request: Get some PPCG rep :P
 
the second one is trivial sorting by char codes and checking for equality :P
 
12:17 AM
@quartata ಠ_ಠ
ini is beautiful
JSON is ugly af
 
@Downgoat Uh, it's true?
@Downgoat Dude, you know JSON is literally what happens when you stringify an object right
 
@quartata yeah?
 
but we're using ini
 
@Downgoat So.... you're basically saying that dictionaries in JS are ugly
 
12:18 AM
pretty much
 
so you're admitting that JS is trash
which means I win
 
no?
 
they're worse in python
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ they're exactly the same in Python
 
and I love js dictionaries
@quartata nope.
 
12:19 AM
Saying the object literal syntax in JS (which you should almost never use) does not mean JS is bad.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Uhh?
 
"asdf": prop versus asdf: prop
 
You should be using Map for dictionaries anyway
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Oh, ffs.
 
@quartata what? something wrong?
 
12:19 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ basically same difference
 
does anynone here know SVN?
 
but it's much less convenient
 
@Downgoat quartata does
 
@quartata halp with SVN pls
 
ok what do you need help with
 
12:20 AM
svn
 
so I have some git stuff I need to download
 
ok
 
so right now I am doing:
svn export path/to/file
how would I download that to a specific file?
 
@Downgoat what do you mean?
 
12:22 AM
I want to download and rename basically
 
svn export takes a remote or local repo and basically puts all the files in it in a new directory
So you do svn export repo new-path
 
oh
so like git
 
I'm bored. have a few more example programs. feel free to question/criticize as this is a work in progress
∇/∩∂         gcd (takes array)

÷-^φa^⁻Φa√5  golden ratio fibonacci

?<a2a+fàfà   recursive fibonacci

:„1+         recurrence relation fibonacci

∏            factorial, because array(n) = [1..n]
 
What is
 
12:28 AM
@QPaysTaxes he's using the golden ratio to calculate the fibonacci
@Cyoce I really like this language
 
What is the language
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ thanks! :D
 
@Quill do you know node? If you do can you help me with it :3
 
@AlexA. pretzel
@Cyoce no problem
 
@AlexA. pretzel, my prefix golfing language.
 
12:29 AM
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
 
Quill has been summoned
 
Strange, I thought I was still in this room...
Monring
@Downgoat maybe enough to help you out, what's up?
 
@Quill ok, so I am trying to run some commands in node
 
Fun fact: the : in the recurrence relation fibonacci :„1+ means subscript, so just „1+ will create an infinite fibonacci sequence generator object (which will infinitely print the next term if this is the last expression in the main function)
 
I need to get STDOUT which will be a file, it might be big but it's not really a file
 
12:31 AM
@Cyoce whoa
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ lazy evaluation FTW
 
how should I do htis?
 
@DJMcMayhem Sorry about that. Feel free to ask me. The documentation is admittedly a little too long. Knowing some Matlab helps
 
Can't you just do a normal terminal stdout to file
 
@Quill and then read that file?
seems inefficient
 
12:32 AM
Haskell does the same thing. Open GHCI and type [1..] and it will brutally murder your output stream.
 
@Cyoce you need to make a pretzel-to-(La)TeX converter
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I don't know (La)TeX, but sure I'll get on that once I make my unicode<->pretzel converters.
 
Soft pretzels are taste
 
@AlexA. I love soft pretzels
 
12:34 AM
Quill$ npm update node -v >> meow.txt
Quill$ cat meow.txt
1.4.28
Can't you just do that @Downgoat
 
@Quill but my command is already outputting to stdout
@QPaysTaxes what do you mean by that
I need the file in memory
 
You're trying to rename/copy a file?

can we not lenny chain pls?

Put a moderator hat on it and it can be @AlexA.

Q: Rainbowlify An Image

Helka HombaThis challenge is about gradually shifting hues in an image to make pretty pictures like this: (original) Challenge Write a program or function that takes in two non-negative integers and an image in any common image file format of your choosing (you can take a path to the image or the raw im...

 
that's pretty cool
 
@HelkaHomba think you have a mistake
step = cycles / (image width * image height)
 
@orlp Where?
 
should be
step = cycles / image height
 
WHAT
TOO MANY BACKSLASHES
 
12:51 AM
@HelkaHomba unless you intend for the rainbow to not be in rows
 
@QPaysTaxes I was testing and it failed
 
but that will look weird as cycles increases
 
say if two objects have a scale factor of n : m (n < m). Given distance K of the smaller object,what is the distance K' on the larger object?
 
@HelkaHomba either way you should add a testcase with a really high cycles, to sniff this out
 
@orlp No that's right. The rainbows aren't in rows, it's just tricky to tell
@orlp Good idea
 
12:53 AM
also
you didn't specify how you define hue
by what color space
@HelkaHomba ^
 
@orlp Fixed both issues
 
@ArtOfCode Can I just post.title?
 
@QPaysTaxes just a picture of a bird

Q: Tips for golfing in Swift

addisonWhat are some tips for code-golfing in Swift? It seems like a difficult language to golf in because of it's focus on safety, but I was wondering if there's any tips to help? Are there any features in Swift that may help it excel in code-golf in certain applications?

 
@Quill do you know what Error: write EPIPE means?
 
oops post.title doesn't work
I'm trying to understand Answer here and my head hurts
i very stupid
 
haha, svn is so bad it segmentation faults instead of throwing an error
 
Ohhh, I get it now
@Downgoat broken pipe
 
ohh
 
1:20 AM
which is a perfectly valid reason for a segfault
 
duh
 
@quartata no, segfault happens on a different script
 
what are you doing to poor svn anyways
 
Sending it to hell where it belongs
 
1:22 AM
@quartata there are files on github which I need to download with svn.
 
@ArtOfCode I went ahead and deployed the fix for rep notifications that shows the title
 
That issue was weird
 
now I just need to do comments
 
@Quill do you know what execFile does?
 
1:25 AM
No
 
and done
 
No: looks like it executed a file
 
nvm figured it out
 
@LuisMendo Haha, no problem. I actually learned a fair bit. Although there are still a couple things that aren't clear. I'd love some help on it! I'll ping you about it later.
 
2 issues down 5 to go
 
1:34 AM
Hi @NewMainPosts
 
@ANerd-I new main posts isn't in here...
 
@Downgoat Just how I greet the chatroom as a whole. :P
 
step = cycles / (image width * image height
@HelkaHomba missing a 360 * there
 
?a*afà1 recursive factorial
@orlp Unmatched parenthesis. I... aaaa... bzzzt... kkssshhh shutting down
) oh thank god
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ಠ_ಠ for using var and not let
 
1:50 AM
@ArtOfCode debating how to handle IRC logins. The easiest way is to run IRC over ssl and have users message the bot their qpixel logins
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ your INI parser fails for arrays/objects: D:
goat[]=downgoat
goat[]=upgoat
that would output "goat[]": "upgoat" rather than "goat": ["downgoat", "upgoat"]
 
Isn't that what it should do?
 
@Geobits no, [] denotes an array
[something] denotes an object
 
Yea, but what ugly syntax uses = to add to an array?
 
@Geobits this is an INI config file, not a fancy programming language
 
1:55 AM
Either way I'd expect to see something sensible. Intuitively, it looks like you're assigning values to a variable (overwriting the first), not adding items to a list.
 
@Geobits ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I didn't make INI
