Q: Alternative approach to migration

nhgrifBefore I make this suggestion, I'm going to lay out some guidelines for what should and should not be migrated between sites. The method for migration I'm about to suggest only makes sense if we can all agree to the same set of guidelines for migration, I think. Feel free to disagree with this ...

@SimonAndréForsberg @rolfl @sᴉɔuɐɹɥԀ @Duga and anyone else interested in the crappy state of the "migration" mechanic currently... ^^^
 
5:09 PM
@nhgrif Yeah, reading.... BTW, one thing of technical nature.
closed-as-duplicate on target site is OK.
> 3. A post should not be migrated if, for any reason, it would be closed on the destination site.
 
Migrate then close as duplicate?
Perhaps "Migrate and close as duplicate" should be added in the third section about the review queue.
I gotta get back to work... I may amend that this afternoon.
 
@nhgrif - also some typos/wrong-sense in here:
> Members of the source site are not going to be the best judges of what is on-topic on the source site (and whether or not, for any reason, it'd be closed on the source site).
those last two "source" should be "target"?
@nhgrif - I really like the suggestion though. There's some technical issues in there, but the concept is sound
 
Good thing my professors are so blind.
I just realized that for the entire semester, I was forgetting to change the pages I was citing from the textbook because I was just copy/pasting the reference.
It appears they never noticed as I never got lower than 14/15.
Windows Store for Business!
Business/schools can highlight apps they want their employees/students to find.
 
are you using LaTeX @Hosch250?
 
No.
Just Word.
 
5:20 PM
If you want to impress your professor go for LaTeX :D
seems I also have image upload issues in the chat.
 
@DJanssens Redirect Notice The page you were on is trying to send you to xyz... If you do not want to visit that page, you can return to the previous page.

Yes, @rolfl
 
Damn, so much chat!
 
Alright, just downloaded VS Code. It feels really good to use
Takes less than a second to load a solution
 
No spamming in chat, please.... ^^^^
;-)
Is it just me, or is the big announcement that MicroSoft has finally produced a decent text editor?
 
5:26 PM
@rolfl That would be refreshing!
 
@rolfl what's wrong with Notepad?
2
 
It's a whole lot more than just a text editor though
 
Yeah, it does syntax highlighting...?
And code cross-referencing...?
And runs on multiple OS's?
 
Are you talking about M$ Word, or a new thing?
 
And facilitates debugging.. And ASP.NET applications..
 
5:27 PM
And has a tree-like organizatonal system.....
 
@JeroenVannevel So, ASP.net is maybe novel, but, consider this:
> Eclipse began as a Smart Canada project. Object Technology International (OTI), which had previously marketed the Smalltalk-based VisualAge family of integrated development environment (IDE) products,[2] developed the new product as a Java-based replacement.[4] In November 2001, a consortium was formed with a board of stewards to further the development of Eclipse as open-source software.

Q: Forming a dictionary where all values are only conditionally set

Mr_SpockI have lots of dictionary keys with conditional values, ternary in this case: # cover page data_coverPage.append({'reportCalendarOrQuarter': coverPage.reportcalendarorquarter.string if coverPage.reportcalendarorquarter else "N/A", 'filingManager_name': coverPage.filingmanager.find_a...

 
So, what VS Code is advertised as doing for .Net ecosystem, Eclipse was basically doing in 2001.
 
Huh, Microsoft, Text Editor?
 
5:30 PM
but... Eclipse, IntelliJ, Vim, Emacs and other editors have existed for years, what's all the big buzz about?
 
4 mins ago, by rolfl
Is it just me, or is the big announcement that MicroSoft has finally produced a decent text editor?
 
Doesn't really matter to me when someone did something. Obviously there's a market to be filled
Right. But Code VS provides debugging for C# and ASP.NET applications across all platforms. Which editor does that?
 
so basically, Microsoft have caught up with the new decade? About time.
4
 
@JeroenVannevel For C# and ASP.net? Only VS Code. But, you have to ask yourself: Why?
 
So, you can do C# on Mac and Linux now, basically?
 
5:31 PM
cough
 
@rolfl So they filled a market which none of the others did yet
 
No, they segmented a market they had intentionally excluded themselves from before.
 
The one thing people complained the most about was the lack of crossplatform support
Now there is
@rolfl Also called "competition"
 
Can I use this tool to code C# without having to download and install a gazillion other Microsoft products? (MS SQL Server etc.)
 
So, instead of making it cross-platform, and integrating with the tools already out there, they create an incompatible tool that does not open up the platform at all, but closes it down.
 
5:33 PM
I think you're a little afraid Microsoft is going to boot away Java!
@SimonAndréForsberg When have you ever had to install SQL Server to write C#?
 
No, I am not as fixated on things like that as you may think.
 
@rolfl What is being closed down?
 
@JeroenVannevel - to me, I see this as an admission of "defeat".
 
@JeroenVannevel When I installed Visual Studio Express, a whole bunch of crap that I didn't needed were installed as well. Despite me trying to make the installation as minimum as possible.
 
@nhgrif: Visual Studio on Windows now supports Objective-C
 
5:35 PM
So? You don't have the frameworks, do you?
 
Photoshop/Premiere Elements coming to the Windows Store...
 
@rolfl Catering to requests is a defeat?
 
Windows-based ObjC compilers and editors aren't even remotely new.
 
MS can no longer attract enough developers on to the MS platform, so they have to get market-share, app-share, product share by getting people on other "competing platforms" like Linux, and Mac, to write applications for them...... The question is....
 
Microsoft is late to the game on that unless they have all of the OS X/iOS framework somehow.
 
5:36 PM
Will people who use multiple platforms use the new-to-their-platform CRT, or use their existing tool chains which are already functional.
 
@rolfl Meh, they are more going to the Open Source side, not sure if that's a defeat or a genuine direction change of the CEO
 
There is certainly some value in what MS is doing, but it says as much about their failures as it does about their future.
 
@rolfl If existing tools were already fully functional then why was the biggest complaint that .NET isn't cross platform?
 
@JeroenVannevel Who was complaining that?
certainly not the C, C++, Java, Obj-C people.
Nor the JavaScript, PHP, and others.
 
Windows devs were complaining about that
 
5:38 PM
Nor the pyhon....
 
And here I'm just hoping that Windows will ever see the power of a decent command-line and apt-get
 
Exactly, it was the people who MS had already trapped on their single platform that were complaing about their captivity.
And, @skiwi - you calling it "Open Source" is very disappointing :(
 
And I already have a library for talking to SQL server via objective-c and swift, so I don't even need a .NET language to do that...
 
You can port Obj-C apps to Windows easily.
 
@rolfl I mean they did open source C# stuff, etc. Right?
 
5:40 PM
Not according to what Open Source actually means, no
 
Well, you feel about it how you want to. Personally I don't see anything wrong with expanding to other platforms
 
Like...? I haven't checked it too much
 
You can read the source, but you can't change it...... or reuse it.
@JeroenVannevel I think it is great.
> Well, you feel about it how you want to. Personally I don't see anything wrong with expanding to other platforms
I applaud MS for doing it.
But, calling it innovative, etc. is a stretch
 
@Hosch250 can you? Does windows somehow have the iOS/OS X frameworks?
 
It is 30 years overdue, and they have not yet gone far enough
 
5:41 PM
@rolfl Hmm, does it differ much from OpenJDK? Are those things in there allowed? Sure, I can make a good PR and that might be used, but can you really change something? I personally just don't know
 
> As of April 3, 2014, Roslyn is under the Apache License 2.0
 
I don't know, but it is apparently actually being used to port advanced apps.
 
No one actually writes ObjC code. We write Foundation code. Just like no one actually writes C# or VB code--they write .NET code.
 
If you make a PR to Roslyn, then it could also get accepted methinks
 
Latest Mono version straight up copied parts of the .NET framework
 
5:42 PM
And now everyone is moving on to Swift anyway...
 
They just covered it, and apparently the guy who wrote Candy Crush Saga (whatever that is) wrote it on iOS and ported it with the tool.
 
.NET, Roslyn and other tools are absolutely open source
 
@rolfl I'm not so sure about the C# language itself, but I recently read a post explaining how they wanted to use Roslyn's model for .Net core.
 
ported and writing as-I-know-it are different.
 
And I know you can submit PRs to Roslyn.
 
5:44 PM
It doesn't sound like you know to know anything but Obj-C.
 
@RubberDuck and get a Mug<T> for it, with a "thank you" note :)
 
@Hosch250 You don't know what Candy Crush Saga is? Thank God! There is hope!
2
 
Can two devs on different OSes check in to the same ObjC source control?
 
I don't know, if it is hosted through Git, probably.
 
@nhgrif that could frak up the encodings, ..but what do I know ;)
 
5:45 PM
Unless Apple is announcing that they've open-sourced their frameworks at wwdc, the answer is no...
You can't write Foundation, Cocoa, or Cocoa Touch on anything but OSX.
 
AFAIK, you can write anything anywhere, but you can't compile it.
 
Well then what's the point?
 
I don't know how it works, but it ports the app automatically and lets it run on Windows.
 
@RubberDuck I just looked.... and am a little surprised.
2
 
I'm sure it doesn't always work perfectly, but it appears to be pretty good.
 
5:47 PM
The code is licensed under the MIT licences, which are, indeed, Open.
 
Yes, it ports it, but it's no longer using the same frameworks.
 
In order to build the code, you need to have Visual Studio 2013, though, which is a barrier to entry.
 
No, but as long as your tests pass, why not just release it?
 
And again, basically everyone has moved in to Swift... So who cares sort of.
 
@Hosch250 I'd say that's a bad idea
 
5:49 PM
@skiwi Well, I'm not an iOS guy, so I won't be doing it.
 
@Hosch250 you can't just swap out all of the frameworks an app uses back and forth and be okay.
 
So, with this new MS Code thingy, can I code and run C# Console applications with it? Like my C# Sudoku Solver?
 
Like I said, I don't know how it works, but they demoed porting one, and said the Candy Crush Saga was ported using it.
 
I expect a whole wealth of really annoying questions to come from this because "candy crush bro did it"
 
@SimonAndréForsberg possibly, but there is a lot of unexplained machinery about how the VS code actually dispatches the code to be compiled and run.
 
5:51 PM
I made a javascript class system, available from github.com/JakarCo/JDOM that you could try. I have a couple example usages in my question on codereview at codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/87983/…Jakar 41 secs ago
 
@skiwi Why? Are you saying there can still be bugz even when all the tests pass? Impossible! Blasphemy!
 
@rolfl Any new language often comes with a difference in IDE though
 
at first glance, it looks like MS Code can only do ASP.NET and Node.JS applications...
 
How much of candy crush is actually c++ though? Probably quite a bit. It also doesn't have any native iOS/OSX UI in it
 
@SimonAndréForsberg I'm not too sure about that. I'm only seeing ASP.NET and node
 
5:52 PM
I am disappointed.
2
 
Though I would imagine that other kinds of apps are a next step
 
I saw them port an iOS Obj-C app write in the conference with a native iOS UI.
 
Yeah, I expected at least console apps as well
 
I surely hope so.
 
As I say, I see this as progress, and good thing, but not enough

I gotta say though, I was positively surprised about how easy it was to download and install.
 
5:53 PM
Doesn't make up for the disappointment at how feature-lacking it seems to be though...
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to come with an "Uninstall" button...
 
@SimonAndréForsberg A Uninstall on a OS?
 
Why would you even want to write a ObjC for Windows anyway?
 
@Mast Windows applications tend to have uninstall features/buttons.
Can ASP.NET applications run under Linux/Mac?
 
@nhgrif If it is as great as you say it is, why wouldn't you?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg yes
 
5:58 PM
@SimonAndréForsberg Oh, you were talking about Code? Thought you were talking about Win10
 
They showed the docker integration at the start of the keynote
ASP.NET on Linux baby
 
@Hosch250 you lose all of the actual OS X/iOS frameworks...
 
You gain all the Windows frameworks...
 
but you already had that with the .net languages...
So... Why would you write ObjC for windows vs VB or c#?
 
I think the idea is you don't have to learn another language.
So all the Morts can write apps (isn't that the guy?)
 
6:00 PM
You have to learn new frameworks which is the entire hard part about learning a new language.
 
Swift is simple for ObjC users to learn because it's the exact same frameworks.
 
@JeroenVannevel How? With what server?
 
Are there any technical specifications available over this new hype? So far I've only found marketing crap.
 
Same for VB to C#
 
6:01 PM
I think I'm an Elvis now.
 
@Mast Code or Win10?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg You'll have to re-watch the start of the keynote. Apparently docker is some sort of environment abstraction and he demonstrated running an ASP.NET app on his linux server
 
Why on earth did they name it "Code" by the way?
@JeroenVannevel s/re-watch/watch/
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Preferably both, but I was referring to Code

@skiwi They currently have a globe.

Btw, @Hosch250... ObjC is as great as a say.... But more important than ObjC's greatness is this: Right tool for the right job

@Mast It's more about Django, they have a feature called "makemigration", but their indexing seems to be iterative, let's say the last migration was id 5, if you create a migration in two distinct feature branches, then you coudl create id 6 twice
 
@skiwi What happens when you merge both id 6?
 
@Mast I'm not sure if that gives sensible output, but it might, mainly thinking through it in theory now
What I ultimately want is that via Continuous Integration I get a "live" staging environment of the develop branch

Welcome to Code Review! Are DoFoo and DoBar supposed to stand for anything? As we can't review unimplemented code, this post might be better off without them. On the other hand, if they're real methods in your real code, throwing a real NotImplementedException, then I'd say that you're misusing that exception type... but I can't be sure because it looks like these methods are just stubs that stand for something else. This is why "stub/hypothetical code" is off-topic on this site. I'd just remove them if they're irrelevant. — Mat's Mug 1 min ago

Q: How can I enforce a compiler warning or error for namespace conflicts?

nhgrifConsider I have the following: FrameworkA, which defines class Foo FrameworkB, which also defines class Foo A file in FrameworkA which imports FrameworkB How can I get Xcode to generate either a warning or error on any line that makes references to Foo without using the namespace qualifier? ...

And those are both Swift specific issues. Swift is less than a year old.
 
@nhgrif I'm looking forward to an answer on your question.

Return retval
that code is wrong, ...in so many ways...
 
Ew
That can't even possibly work.

@SimonAndréForsberg Ah sorry for the bad link, it wasn't important so never mind.
 
@Mat'sMug retval = False ---> Dead code?
 
@Mat'sMug What's retval by default?
 
The exception gets rethrown before
 
@SimonAndréForsberg yup
 
What @Simon said.

@DJanssens What link?
 
What if there's no exception?
 
and unless I'm mistaken, the original stack trace is lost
 
the image a few hours ago, haha :D
 
@skiwi Then it never enters the catch block.
@Mat'sMug You're not.
 
@Mat'sMug It's the same exception object that is thrown, isn't it? Or is a new one automatically created on throw ?

@RubberDuck But then it would hit the return statement?
 
Can someone with more rep see what that last comment was on the question, and if it was in response to mine?
