@200_success Thanks for adding on my question; I wasn't sure if it would be duplicative so I left it off.

@DanPantry MySQL? Where do I begin?
 
monking @Mast
 
How about a feature comparison?

See the column of "No" under MySQL.
Then there are MySQL Gotchas, which are significantly weirder than PostgreSQL's gotchas.
In my experience, MySQL's query optimizer sucks at handling complex joins, and has some pathological performance problems.
Then there are the different storage engines, each with their own quirks.
Just an arbitrarily selected excerpt from the 5.6.20 release notes:
> The mysqlhotcopy utility is now deprecated and will be removed in a future version of MySQL. Among the reasons for this: It works only for the MyISAM and ARCHIVE storage engines; it works on Unix but not Windows. Alternatives include mysqldump and MySQL Enterprise Backup.
MyISAM tables ignore foreign key constraints! That is, it allows you to write those constraints when defining the table with no complaints, but then there is no enforcement. You have to use a workaround based on triggers.
Their features don't seem very well thought out. For example, 5.7.8 reverts a bunch of changes made in 5.7.4.
Those changes (which are too complicated to quote here) deal with Strict SQL Mode. Why is there a Strict SQL Mode in the first place? Because their default mode is to accept a whole bunch of nonsense queries, including GROUP BY queries where some columns are neither part of the group nor aggregated.
Considering the way PostgreSQL is solidly engineered and keeps getting faster and better, and the doubts about Oracle's intentions for MySQL, I wouldn't bother with MySQL if I had any choice in the matter.
 
9:23 AM
Thanks for the info. I've never really looked into "why no MySQL" other than blindly following dogma.
It feels good to be educated. :)
 
You're welcome. It feels good to let it all out!
 
now you know how I feel about Angular!
and jQuery
 
Oh? Now it's my turn to be educated. Enlighten me.
 
It's all crap
(ATM I don't have the time to go into it)
Suffice to say I just spent.. an hour tracking down an issue due to interop between jQuery/Angular
Though they say a poor workman blames his tools
To TLDR it, Angular has a fair share of problems (Most of it is due to the fact all errors are detected at runtime/string typing/made in an error without module bundlers). jquery is just used too often by people who don't know why to use it other than SO told them to do so
these are much less quantifiable than a checklist of feature comparisons, though
"I don't have time to go into it" goes into it Nice one, Dan.
 
To be fair, that doesn't sound like a problem with jQuery, but rather a problem with noobs.
 
9:32 AM
Ah, no, jquery also has the issue of caching every element you pass to it.
Without telling you.
memory leaks 101
But that is my only issue with jQuery. I don't particularly see much point in it in day to day, but you're right - 99% of my issue is with noobs
Well, not noobs. Everyone was a noob at some point; just people who stubbornly refuse to be anything other than a noob.

So what do you recommend?
 
VanillaJS in place of jQuery unless you need to support <IE9.
jQuery's main place now is as a compatibility layer (and, honestly, Zepto is better at that due to being more lightweight).
Unless you absolutely need the jQuery plugin support (like we do) - then you want to use a custom build of jQuery and not the entire thing.
 
Interesting. Basically, jQuery without the historical baggage? But isn't that also what jQuery 2 aims for?
 
Yes, jQuery 2 does offer custom builds (which is why I mentioned it)
However, the way I see it is that, again, unless you need the plugin support, there's really no reason to use jQuery over vanilla
Vanilla itself is very concise
Certainly, any project that is at the stage of using ES6 with webpack or whatever really doesn't need jQuery
If you're not at that stage and just plunking together files inside a git repo without a build process, sure, jQuery might work for you
 
What about higher level frameworks? Your preferred alternative to Angular…?
 
9:41 AM
React
No question about it
Angular works and that's fine, but in my opinion it's too heavy weight and has its fair share of issues with a very large, non-transferrable learning curve
React is "just" JavaScript. If you know how JavaScript works, you know how React works, no questions asked
Whereas with Angular you have to learn all the propretiary directives, transclusion, compile, link, prelink, postlink, scopes...
Additionally React fails loudly at compile time if you make a mistake
 
I'll look into it more then. My first impression was that I was weirded out by JSX.
 
Angular will fail at runtime and it may even fail at runtime in production and not in test environments with the same code, just minified
JSX takes getting used to but it is really just function calls
<h1>Foo</h1> === React.createElement('h1', 'Foo')
You could even use createElement if you want, but that gets messy after a few nested calls, so some users prefer JSX
@200_success Just noticed that Postgres doesn't support stored procedures, but T-SQL does. Why is that, do you think? There's a push from one of our T-SQL DBAs to move some code from C# into T-SQL, but we're pushing back on that because it is significantly easier to develop non-performance critical code in C# using LINQ.
 
Sure it does. They're just called functions rather than "procedures".
 
Well, T-SQL supports functions too (I read the footnote). Aren't functions more in the mathematical sense than the generic, imperative "function" sense?
 
in the "procedure" sense.
 
9:47 AM
Oh, right
 
Not the Haskell sense.
 
That's what T-SQL functions are like, which is why I was confused
 
@DanPantry there's a few things you can do wrong there
first and foremost is using a Function / SProc where other tools would be better
I've seen too many functions that were actually views ...
also just because it's not performance-critical that doesn't mean you shouldn't get it into the Database
 
I agree there, but the scenario is being that it is a lot more... awkward, and difficult, to link sprocs up to EF
on the other hand, the rationale is that we want all sql developers to be able to modify the way the "db logic" works in our product - and not just the c# ones
even if adding a new column makes it all fall down like a house of cards
 
adding a new column usually doesn't impact a well-written SProc all that much
 
9:52 AM
it breaks EF
 
only exception would be adding a new mandatory column where the procedure inserts things
 
EF gets pretty angry when you modify the schema of anything without it knowing
Unless it's an optional parameter
 
EF is a pain, especially when you use it for more than dumbed down DB-First model generation
 
It is, but the only alternative is NHibernate
and we're already knee-deep in EF
 
I've worked with EF-frameworks a bit, however doesn't writing optimized queries completelyd efeat their purpose?
 
9:56 AM
entity framework frameworks? :p
The whole idea behind EF is that you can rapidly develop things by not having two worry too much about schema
It has two parts... migrations and an ORM
You kinda need an ORM in most cases anyway, and that's the part we use
 
@DanPantry Eh, meant ORM frameworks then ^^
I can't deny that I like it for developing (used it mainly in Grails), but once you get a query that's a little bit complex you're going to have a hard time
 
@skiwi reminds me of when my friend would say DPS per seconds ^^
Yeah, it's a no-brainer to put complex, or performance critical, queries in the DB - and we have done that

Q: Best way to build a JSON API coupled with HTML views in a Rails project

LaurentI've got a Rails eCommerce project communicating with an iOS app. The iOS app receives JSON data from the Rails back-end, but there's also HTML rendering when a user comes to the project from his browser. They basically call the same actions (create, destroy, update, etc.) from both sides. /webs...

 
But there are simple ones that don't necessarily need to be in the DB and / or some sprocs that are simply doing far too much
 
@DanPantry So React is the way to go?
 
10:00 AM
@DanPantry That's the increase of DPS every second :p
 
@Mast As far as my opinion goes, yes.
So far React seems like a safe choice, it is very stable, it's used by one of the most valuable tech companies in the world..
And yes, Angular was developed by Google, but it recently underwent a massive overhaul and still has kept a lot of the bad stuff while trying to simultaneously catch up to React
For example their way of solving their use of inline html strings is... to introduce more complexity to the inline html strings
<input (change)='$ctrl.onChange' [value]='$ctrl.value' /> as an example
 
To JSX or not to JSX?
 
I am firmly in the JSX camp because after 2-3 levels of nesting it gets hard to read with React.createElement everywhere
I also think that <h1>Hello, World</h1> is much clearer than React.createElement('h1', 'hello, world').
With the first one you can easily see what's going on
Write code for programmers BrainRE, not compilers :-)
 
Agreed.

for c++, do you guys use a full IDE or just an editor?
I've tried a bunch of IDEs, but I am tending to find using them to be just a little confusing. So I'm leaning back toward just using an editor and compiling/debugging with the terminal.

anyone here have experience creating chrome extensions?
 
yeah, a little. what's up?
 
I think Jeroen has as well.
 
It appears you're asking for a code review, which would be appropriate on Code Review. Please review How to Ask, as this appears to be a highly opinionated question. — zzzzBov 59 secs ago

it's pretty similar to a userscript, you just have the userscript headers in a json file
 
I am going to create the review queue notifier into a chrome extension, I haven't created one before, so I need to know who to bounce stuff off of...lol
 
awesome. so to start with I can just create a JS file with the userscript that I already have and then tweak it? add what I need? etc?
 
I just started from this and slapped my stuff on it
 
you have to have a manifest.json file, which holds all your script info like what urls to match, the name, the author, the icon file names

anyone know of a Stack Exchange API that lists the names and icons of all the stack sites? I can only find outdated API currently
 
I'm still doing it manually ;-;
 
there used to be an API, I think there still is, but it isn't in the same place it was in 2010
 
 
if I can get a hold of the API I should be able to make the Review Queue Notifier work on ALL TEH SITEZ

in VBA Rubberducking, 1 hour ago, by bvukas
Hey guys, how's it going? I got the 2.0.1a.pre build compiled via VS2013 on my 32-bit virtualbox dev machine just fine (great!). However, when I'm about to load up VBE, I'm getting: "Rubberduck Add-In could not be loaded." I followed the instructions in:

@Walfrat: No, it is not "the same piece of code" (though it is very similar). And code that doesn't work certainly doesn't belong on CodeReview. Please if you're going to be abusive to people at least get your facts right. :) — Lightness Races in Orbit 48 secs ago
