Q: French animal generator

dogspeedI'm learning Python. I'm making a random animal generator, from 5 txt files. Each file is a list of words for respectively the specie of the animal, an adjective, an origin, and a bodypart with a color. Not all may appear in the description. I also wanted it to be arithmogrammatic. Here is my cod...

 
@Mat'sMug You use CI, if I remember correctly, right?
 
yeah, sort of
AppVeyor CI
 
At what stage does peer code review come in when you use CI?
before you merge to master? before you push upstream? after you push upstream? before commits? etc
 
2:06 PM
@Mat'sMug that's good :-)
it's amazing how impactful stupid stuff like that really is
 
@enderland IKR :)
@DanPantry merge to master would be way too late. I review PR's and there's a comment-feedback loop there; contributor can sync their PR with changes
 
@Mat'sMug FML
 
basically CI has nothing to do with it
 
I definitely benefit from it, well I think
 
I'm trying to sort out workflows w/ git and CI
someone is linking a Martin Fowler article to justify PRs being bad (because PRs = feature branches = bad according to MF)
 
2:08 PM
...the ONLY way ANYTHING can get into our [next] branch is via a PR
perhaps our workflow is F'd up though
 
That's what I'm trying to work out, right now anything I work with only gets into master is through PR
 
only? dem fighting words!
 
Because PRs facilitate Code Reviews
And give more visibility to code and changes
My colleague's argument (which is fair) is that feature branches (and ergo PRs) prevent discovering integration issues and that you should always commit direct to master (ie., The SVN Way)
 
nuts
 
My perspective is that really... CI should discover integration issues using PRs
 
2:11 PM
even with SVN I'll give you $#!t for committing directly to the trunk
 
But that's cmoing from an OSS perspective rather than "work on this for hours a day as a job" perspective
So I'm interested in other perspectives, if anyone has any..
 
really you should be making commits into master and then rebasing all of master into a single commit
 
@enderland Ewwwwwwww
 
this way you have total obfuscation of everything!
 
Oh, thank god that was a joke
from what I've heard today it's hard to tell who is/isn't being serious
 
2:12 PM
you can't always tell, but the smiley has a wink on sometimes

My POV is use PRs, test integration on CI and rebase your work on origin/master if you have a long lived branch
 
if your code works, forget SO, I suggest you post it at: codereview.stackexchange.comJordi Castilla 45 secs ago
 
Feature branches do not have to last weeks, they only have to last one. any more than that and you haven't broken down your task very well or you have an epic, in which case merging is probably gonna be painful anyway
and to prove this, I'm going to merge my branch now (which would have been a PR) into master and push it to remote and see if they think it's a good idea to not have gating on changes
 
@Mat'sMug not sure what you mean.
@DanPantry who says you commit to trunk in SVN?
 
@Gareth that seems to be the way he says they approached it in his old place
 
2:17 PM
@DanPantry when there's an important PR on something that can break the way things integrate, then I pull that PR into an "integration/review" branch, build it, and then F5-run-the-damn-thing-and-see-how-it-integrates-with-my-own-eyes. if I have comments I'll make them on the PR, and then the feedback loop loops. if all is good then I merge my review branch (and that merges the PR when I push), or discard my branch and merge the PR. systematically doing that would be insane.
 
@Mat'sMug I don't mean to imply that the CI would be the only test, but that CI would be a decent smoke test
CI passing doesn't mean it's good, but CR not passing means something is definitely up
 
@Gareth I mean the way our "next" is really a "master" and then our "master" is really just a tag
 
@Mat'sMug yes, but you documented that. I checked when I joined.
@DanPantry source control strategies are varied. You can basically do what you like, as long as you document it.
where I work for instance, we all work in trunk. Commit to trunk whenever we like, and CI out of trunk, and deploy from trunk.
Don't ask where I work! and it's only the one small group
 
And... when does CR come in there?
That's the main question, I'm not asking about A vs B, I'm just wondering how do you find time to do CR when you're always commiting direct to master
 
@Gareth damn, so you took my place after I left that crap VB6 job???
 
2:20 PM
And then there's CR and PR and PP... Yes, these are concepts.
 
from my POV even if you're always committing to trunk, with Git you could still do a PR from master to master and CR then
 
I suggest you migrate your question to codereview as @JordiCastilla said :) — niceman 48 secs ago
 
@Mat'sMug I actually did a really great VB6 project at another bank. awesome stuff. Converted VBA to VB6 to C++ so we could move a spreadsheet serverside system to c++ serverside. It was a lot of work
 
youch
 
so basically CR from your POV comes in the PR stage, which I agree with @Mat'sMug... where did it (if at all) happen with you, @Gareth?
 
2:22 PM
It doesn't matter what you do so long as you document how you do it. You can tag any revision at any time, so you could PR against any revision!
 
Yeah, I mean, that works, but my main concern is that the CI approach seems to suggest doing a CR after something is in master
 
If you'd like your code reviewed, I suggest you post it on codereview.stackexchange.commartineau 11 secs ago
 
Which... basically defeats the purpose
If only there were some place you could store non-peer-reviewed work. Maybe Il'l call it a leaf.. no... a branch?
 
I see two screens of CI / PR discussion.
 
so outside of my current environment. PR happens BEFORE committing to Master, but CI is just a function of URL. So you could do CI anywhere
 
2:23 PM
@Vogel612 Nothing else going on
 
and it seems like there's a lot to talk about. may I suggest you grab a room?
 
I'm off!
 
The main question isn't about CI or PR, but when do you review code when you are using CI?
 
which is still not related to the site :)
 
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because probably best suited for Code Review. — MethodMan 57 secs ago
 
2:25 PM
> when do you review code when you are using CI
> review code
> code review
wat
 
@Duga Exactly
 
@DanPantry you do CR when you're ready to PR - well just before making your PR. Put your code up on CR, then PR. That's how life should be.
 
I agree. I'll end the discussion about that here though because it's basically an echo chamber @Mat'sMug. programmers.SE seems to also agree - use a tool like Gerrit before comitting to mainline
 
@Gareth VBA... I'm glad to not have to do either VBA OR C++ anymore
 
@enderland ME too. Though the VBA is a business enabler, so it's one of those T skills that are useful to have.
 
2:28 PM
Depends on where you work, my previous job absolutely it was but now on linux/osx? not as much :-)

@Hosch250 Funny story, I'd already uninstalled it.

ask them or review it anyways
or both
 
@enderland Can you be a bit less vague? I don't think there is really a rule set for things like that
 
codereview.stackexchange.com/q/133482/20932 this guy is doing some random stuff but it's not really clear how to make it better

Thanks for the comment. The culprit here is the loop over the cells -- executed in Python, it takes a while to complete.

Wait... How does using PHP affect the cPanel the hosting provider offers?
 
@Zak they're drunk, I said
 
@skiwi I think it has to do with elevation of privileges and improper scoping.

A: C try/catch macros

William MorrisOne problem with this is resource leaks. It is not that your macros leak, but that when you use them, you'll leak.

I think that's a valid review point for it

6:12 PM
 
@Mat'sMug You are right that Visual Studio is very aggressive on fixing the parentheses, I guess I'll put up with it
 
@Phrancis That denotes a generator function
Basically it allows the use of yield and yield* within the function and indicates that that function will return an Iterable<T> and not just T.

I'm tempted to sidetrack this project to create a project that creates an UI, and then the project that creates the UI could create the UI for the project that creates the UI
 
Isn't there an attribute that does the implementation of RaisePropertyChanged, @Mat'sMug? I remember seeing somewhere there was one..
also, why does pastebin have so much line spacing??
 
@DanPantry possibly in C# 6... not sure
 
@DanPantry The bigger issue is my code having so many lines :p
 
I just make a ViewModelBase abstract class and put the INotifyPropertyChanged implementation there. And then I just call OnPropertyChanged() in the VM setters. hmm wait that does involve some attribute magic
@skiwi the VM would have properties for the view to bind to, and commands... which can be implemented in their own class.

WPF is a cool concept and a cool system, but compared to Windows Forms, it is pretty incomplete.
I'd like to do half the stuff I'm doing on WPF without importing external DLLs or using Windows.Forms.
 
WinForms is a dinosaur. It renders its stuff with User32.dll, which was inherited from User.dll, which was responsible for drawing controls in.... Windows 3.11
WPF wraps DirectX for the rendering, which enables things WinForms can't even dream of, like a circular window =)

Q: Can I put my code on a third party site and link to the site in my question?

Simon ForsbergIs it OK if I write a question and include a link to GitHub/Pastebin/other similar site instead of putting the code here on Code Review?

 
Oh, that. As long as the code is included. Just a link is never enough.
 
Yeah I just don't want to start to argue here : codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/133504/…
 
If your code is too long, consider breaking it up into smaller chunks for review instead. It is the rules of the site to have all the code included in the question, and if there is too much code to be contained within the question, it's unlikely you're going to get a review of that same code on Github anyway. — Dan Pantry 8 secs ago

Something worth thinking about for the Stack Exchange moderators, fix the SEO. I Googled, "code review" and your site came up first saying come here to review your code. I'm all reviewing code and assisting other developers but that means you have to make it known that the site is for methodological code review, not Code Review as it's typical implied. — throck95 1 min ago

It's quite clear what the rules of this site are, due to our help center. If you googled "help me fix my code problem", SO might come up, but you wouldn't literally type that in the question box, would you? The rules are clear, take it or leave it. There's no other constructive discussion to be had here. If you'd like to discuss our rules or why we have them you're welcome to discuss with the regulars in the 2nd monitor, as we've been discussing this question. — Dan Pantry 41 secs ago
If he does come here, don't brow-beat him too hard.. :-)
 
Just don't let it turn into a comment war.
 
Actually, he won't be able to talk unless a RO gives him permission.

Everything that has to be said has been said.
 
Nah it's ok. I can understand that someone would want to have a simple review of an entire project.
 
Yeah, that's why I invited him to chat in case he had further discussion - to prevent that. Chat is for chat.
 
Hello @throck95, you need 20 rep to talk here.
 
Welcome, @throck95. I don't think you have the rep to speak yet.. paging @Mat'sMug.
 
So you invited someone who can't talk?

It just does not fit our current Q&A style
 
Yeah, I just realised my mistake. :(
 
@Marc-Andre Current or future. We simply can't do it on CR.
It would open the door for a giant mess.
 
Either way, I'm sure @throck95 can scroll up to read the transcript and see our discussion on the chat so far.
RIP @Mast
 
@Mast Well, I would not rule out the future. Maybe some integration with popular provider could be done, and everything. But would we want to go there mostly not.
 
I don't think that will ever happen unless there is fully fledged integration (think Github PR-style)

Any way got to go! I hope he could provide small block to review !
 
Weird things happening today...

kidding. @throck95 you have been granted explicit write access to this chatroom, feel free to say "Hi!" ...or "Monking!"
how can we help you today?
 
@ScottHoltzman I think Code Review has forever tinted the way I'm answering on SE =) — Mat's Mug 46 secs ago
