02:36 Exuma joined
02:37 <Exuma> Hey, can someone explain to me when I might use ETS? I'm struggling to figure out how this is different from just storing the state in a GenServer
02:38 nomicflux joined
02:38 claudevandort joined
02:39 duane_ joined
02:45 <alisdair> ets can support concurrent reads
02:45 <alisdair> genservers have to serialize reads
02:46 milad joined
02:46 <Exuma> ahhh
02:46 <Exuma> hmm
02:46 <Exuma> Ok here is a dumb question
02:47 <Exuma> I'm trying to build a fun side project to learn elixir (coming from ruby). I want to build a very basic A/B testing platform
02:47 <Exuma> so you would create an experiment, which each experiment would hold some state (settings about the experiment)
02:47 <Exuma> and then it would run x trials, say 500, where something will happen (a few http requests)
02:47 <Exuma> so... would it be normal to make a new genserver for each experiment?
02:48 <Exuma> Ive watched so many videos and tutorials, and now that it comes time to actually design it with all I know, I'm kind of like durrrrrr uhhhh
02:49 <Exuma> I'm basically going to ask people to rate a few choices, and i want to track their votes for each experiemnt. then output the data on another part of the app
02:52 <alisdair> so one thing that's important to remember is that a gen_server isn't the same as an object
02:53 <alisdair> typically you only use a genserver to atomically update state
02:53 <Exuma> hmm
02:54 <alisdair> or to control access to a limited resource like a tcp connection
02:54 <Exuma> can you give a brief example of an atomic update?
02:54 bionj joined
02:54 kronicdeth joined
02:55 tolerablyjake joined
02:55 <alisdair> sure, so if you wanted a counter for example
02:55 meandi_2 joined
02:56 <alisdair> and you wanted to make sure every read returned the same value or a higher value
02:56 <alisdair> you could put the counter in a gen server
02:56 <kronicdeth> Is there a default Poison encoder for Ecto.UUID columns? I'm getting no function clause matching in Poison.Encoder.BitString.chunk_size/3
02:56 <Exuma> Ohhh I see
02:56 <Exuma> Hmm I see
02:57 <Exuma> So is a Genserver ever used as just like a generic data store?
02:57 <Exuma> I am trying to "think in terms of processes"
02:57 <Exuma> obviously there are multiple experiments, and each experiment might have 500 trials. so that has to get stored somewhere
02:57 <Exuma> also there might be 50 variations, so thats stored somewehre too
02:58 <Exuma> As of right now, I'm kind of thinking of a GenServer as like a generic place to store state, but maybe that is wrong
02:58 <Exuma> (state that persists across web requests)
02:58 sevenseacat joined
02:59 <alisdair> you could use it for that
02:59 <alisdair> you could also use ets for that though
02:59 <alisdair> however, if your workload is write heavy it's probably better to use a gen server
03:00 <alisdair> (not for performance reasons, just because it's easier to write generally)
03:00 <Exuma> Oh, I see
03:01 <Exuma> What would I use workers for, hypothetically
03:01 <alisdair> doing things concurrently
03:01 <Exuma> Would 1 worker be per 1 trial (out of 500)
03:01 josevalim joined
03:01 <Exuma> ok, so basically saving things
03:01 <Exuma> to the experiment
03:01 <alisdair> maybe
03:01 <alisdair> a pretty common example is web servers
03:01 <alisdair> you'd have one process per client
03:02 <Exuma> Ok, I see. So a genServer is serial reads, and ETS is concurrent reads
03:02 <alisdair> or if you are writing a thing that makes a bunch of http requests, you'd probably have one process per connection
03:02 <Exuma> what about writes
03:02 <alisdair> writes are serial for both
03:02 <alisdair> basically a gen server can only process a single message at a time
03:02 <alisdair> any messages it receives during processing just sit and wait until it's free
03:03 <alisdair> while an ets table is special and can handle multiple readers at a time
03:03 <Exuma> aahh ok, so if were talking about a very simple operation then, like adding a few numbers, multiple workers wouldnt even be that useful then. its only really useful where an amount of time is involed, like a complicated calculation or http request
03:03 <alisdair> yeah
03:04 <alisdair> if you had a pipeline of tasks you want to perform on an incoming data stream you generally want to perform every task in each process, rather than each task in it's own process
03:05 <alisdair> so you only send a few messages per item in the data stream
03:05 <Exuma> Ok, lets say I use 1 genserver per experiment. Where would I store those names of genservers? do I just create them dynamically with a name based on some sort of unique key or something?
03:05 <Exuma> so that I can "find" it again
03:05 <alisdair> you usually register them with a name or id
03:05 <alisdair> since elixir 1.4 there's a built in registry you can use
03:05 <kronicdeth> You probably want to use the Registry in 1.4, you can have a key that's not an atom then
03:05 <kronicdeth> such as something unique about the experiment
03:05 racycle joined
03:06 <Exuma> I see. Can I also read from the regsitry and just increment to a next ID like a primary key?
03:07 <Exuma> I think I am seeing how this works a lot more now, I appreciate the help by the way
03:09 <Exuma> Also 1 more side question, how is a registry different from ETS? Arent they both key value stores
03:12 chrismccord joined
03:14 <alisdair> registry is just some nicer interfaces to ets, basically
03:14 <Exuma> Ok cool

15:37 <Exuma> Is there a way to make a phoenix project without all this extra support for channels? I don't use websockets hardly ever, and its so deeply intwined in all this code, I don't even know what to remove (particularly in endpoint file)
15:37 <gazler> bitwalker: I've just encountered something with distillery that may be of note. I have a plugin which generates an escript file, and am also using exrm_deb. Order is significant as my plugin needs to run before exrm_deb. Anyway, the plugins run in reverse order by the looks of things.
15:37 <gazler> Which makes sense because they are probably prepended.
15:39 <bitwalker> gazler: good catch, mind opening an issue? I'll try to get some fixes out today
15:39 steffkes joined
15:39 <gazler> bitwalker: Sure, no problem. Just wanted to check it was intentional first.
15:39 <jadlr> Exuma, in the endpoint file there is only line that is specific to the generated channel. Something like "socket "/socket", MyProject.Web.UserSocket"
15:40 <bitwalker> gazler: yeah definitely not intentional, just incidental :)
15:40 <gazler> bitwalker: Do they need reversing here? https://github.com/bitwalker/distillery/blob/master/lib/mix/lib/releases/plugins/plugin.ex#L166
15:40 <Exuma> Are: socket / pubsub / channel all basically different words for the same thing
15:40 jschneck joined
15:41 <Exuma> oh crap.... i was looking in the wrong endpoint file. damn
15:41 <Exuma> time to add ignore paths to vim ahhahaha
15:42 <bitwalker> gazler: I'd rather do it in the config handling
15:42 <jadlr> Exuma, i generated a phoenix 1.3 project and there is no pubsub stuff in the endpoint. Only a socket for there generated channel and a socket for the code reloading (you probably wanna keep that)
15:43 <jadlr> Exuma, delete the channel folder in lib/web and test and the channel_case.ex and you should be 'channel-free'
15:43 bionj joined
15:43 <Exuma> thanks! can i delete pubsub out of my mix.exs and deps, or is that used by livereload
15:43 <gazler> bitwalker: You want me to change https://github.com/bitwalker/distillery/blob/master/lib/mix/lib/releases/config/config.ex#L179 (and 186) to ++ []?
15:44 <gazler> bitwalker: If not then I'll just raise an issue!
15:44 <jadlr> Exuma, that I don't know
15:44 <Exuma> ok ill experiment
15:44 <adamkittelson> pubsub is used by channels but it isn't just another name for them, it can be used independently as a way to subscribe processes to messages that may be broadcast from any node in the cluster
15:45 <jadlr> Exuma, you could also delete the function "def channel do" in web.ex
15:45 <Exuma> what about priv/static/js/app.js and web/static/js/socket.js
15:47 milad joined
15:47 <iFire> bitwalker: what the state of distillery and windows services?
15:47 <iFire> what is*
15:49 <jadlr> Exuma, I'm looking at the 1.3 project layout where that stuff is in assets. You should be safe to delete the socket.js file. The app.js is your JS which will be processed by brunch
15:49 <Exuma> hmm i see
15:49 <Exuma> yeah, I'm looking at app.js and don't really see what this is for yet
15:49 squallstter joined
15:49 <bitwalker> iFire: there is support in master for windows, but it has not been released yet
15:49 <bitwalker> on hex that is
15:50 <Exuma> whats the difference between priv/static/css|js and web/static/css|js
15:50 <bitwalker> I'd love to get some feedback from other people though, so if you have time, please give it a shot
15:50 <jadlr> Exuma, priv is the output folder (processed JS) the other is where you write you JS
15:50 <Exuma> ah, I see. now this makes more sense
15:51 <Exuma> ah ha!
15:51 <Exuma> sweet
15:53 rschmukler joined
15:55 robinsjdotcom joined
15:56 <Exuma> what is all this stuff at the top of the compiled app.js? Inside the closure
15:56 amclain joined
15:57 <chrismccord> Exuma as jadlr said, delete the channels dir, then remove the `socket` mount from your endpoint
15:58 <chrismccord> it's not intwined as you implied
15:58 <Exuma> Ah, thanks Chris. Yeah I was accidentally looking at the wrong endpoint file (in dist)
15:59 <Exuma> So far all of this is great, the only part that I'm still wondering about is where all this js in app.js comes from and what its for. I see a few functions which probably come from phoenix_html to submit delete request forms (i'm guessing), but what is all this stuff above it?

16:05 <elixir1932> Quick question. What does the pipe character do in the following code: `new_results = [result|results]`?
16:06 <elixir1932> I can't seem to find it in the elixir getting started guide
16:06 <alisdair> on the right side of a match pattern it constructs a list by prepending `result` to the list `results`
16:06 <alisdair> on the left side it would match the first item in the list
16:06 <ciawal> http://elixir-lang.org/getting-started/basic-types.html#lists-or-tuples
16:07 <elixir1932> thanks!
16:07 <alisdair> that's a pretty idiomatic way to collect results in an iterative way in elixir (via prepending to a list of results)
16:07 cevado joined
16:08 mattyw joined
16:08 <elixir1932> alisdair: so if I want to sort the list in the order in which items were added, it would be most efficient to construct list this way, then reverse?
16:08 <alisdair> yeah, exactly
16:09 <elixir1932> alisdair: cool, got it.
16:09 <alisdair> it's not necessarily most efficient (body recursion can be more efficient for certain operations/meanings of efficient) but it's generally a good approach
16:09 mattyw joined
16:10 <elixir1932> alisdair: can you expand on how body recursion would be more efficient? (still learning! :))
16:11 <elixir1932> alisdair: wait, I think I asked another question not too long ago and someone (maybe you?) responded about efficiency of body recersion...

16:43 <benwilson512> nox: just the man I need
16:44 <benwilson512> (maybe)
16:44 <benwilson512> do you have a sense of what would suite a large tree structure in Elixir better, a tree of Records of a tree of maps? the tree is essentially AST, and processing the tree involves walking the vast majority of nodes in a pass to annotate it with various forms of metadata
16:45 greengriminal joined
16:45 <benwilson512> there are several dozen such passes
16:45 rschmukler joined
16:45 <nox> Does it matter if it's slow or not?
16:45 <nox> Is the AST quite formal, or are you experimenting and have no idea how it will look like in the end?
16:45 <benwilson512> the actual context is the graphql implementation I'm one of the co-authors of, and processing trees happens on every HTTP request
16:45 <benwilson512> so faster is better
16:46 <benwilson512> you can cache some of the work, but some of it is unavoidable to do each time
16:48 <wwwd> I'm trying to parse a list of colors from a "colors.json" file to be used in a Phoenix select tag. If I do "File.read("../static/resources/colors.json") in iex I get {:ok, "[\"apricot\"...\"]" which I can then parse with "Code.string_to_qoeted". On the other hand, if I try and use "File.read" in my controler I get an error. What am I doing wrong?
16:48 <ljarvis> what's the error?
16:48 <ciawal> you should use Poison.decode
16:48 <ciawal> not Code.string_to_qoeted!
16:49 <ciawal> but you probably just have the wrong file path?
16:49 <benwilson512> note that it's an `{:ok` tuple
16:49 <wwwd> {:error, :enoent}
16:49 <wwwd>
16:49 <ljarvis> that too, but presumably it's a wrong path issue?
16:49 <benwilson512> yea
16:49 <ciawal> yes, that means the file doesn't exist
16:49 <ciawal> you should use the application root helper
16:49 <ciawal> but I forget where it is
16:50 <ciawal> Mix.Project.app_path
16:50 <micmus> the simples solution would be to put it in priv and use Application.app_dir(app_name, "priv/path/to/file")
16:50 <micmus> always works
16:50 <ciawal> you could consider reading this at compile time also
16:51 <micmus> benwilson512: are the maps with fixed keys or are you adding new keys
16:51 <wwwd> If I open iex in the file my /controllers and past it the exact code it reads it.
16:51 <ljarvis> that's not the same app path
16:51 <ciawal> the working directory is not the controller script's directory

17:01 cevado joined
17:12 <benwilson512> micmus: fixed keys
17:12 <benwilson512> micmus: its' basically a question of records vs structs
17:13 <wwwd> micmus: "colors = get_colors(File.read(Application.app_dir(maize, "priv/resources/colors.json")))" is telling giving me "web/controllers/pet_controller.ex:16: undefined function maize/0" Did I miss understand what you were telling me?
17:14 <micmus> benwilson512: up to 32 keys, maps are basically two tuples - one for keys, one for values, so it should be pretty much the same compared to records.
17:14 <ciawal> wwwd: :maize
17:14 <ciawal> if that's your app name…
17:14 <micmus> ^
17:14 <benwilson512> micmus: right, I suppose what I'm wondering is if the records would be a lot more compact since the keys aren't really stored
17:15 <wwwd> Ah! Damn!!!
17:15 <micmus> benwilson512: it might be slightly slower, since you have to find the key instead of having the index right there, but I'm not sure it's significant
17:15 <benwilson512> micmus: I'm sure in isolation it isn't, but I'm wondering if with all the tree walking / pattern matching I'm doing if a tuple wouldn't be faster
17:15 <benwilson512> however rewriting the code to use records would be a massive undertaking
17:15 <micmus> benwilson512: yeah, it might be less memory - though the keys tuple can be reused between different maps
17:16 akeating joined
17:16 <micmus> the one in maps
17:16 <benwilson512> micmus: very good point on reusing the keys tuple w/ maps
17:16 <alisdair> i don't think they can be
17:16 dani0_ joined
17:16 <alisdair> unless your keys are heap binaries
17:17 <benwilson512> I could probably do a proof of concept and see how it goes
17:17 pesnk joined
17:17 <benwilson512> the structures are all 100% internal so I'm not super concerned from an API perspective
17:17 <micmus> alisdair: %{map | :key => new_value} won't allocate a new tuple for keys, it will only copy the values tuple
17:19 <benwilson512> right so that's an overall good question
17:19 <benwilson512> what's the relative memory cost of doing
17:19 <benwilson512> %{small_map | key: value} vs tuple |> set_elem(3, value) or whatever the tuple function is
17:20 <benwilson512> the whole tuple is copied as far as I understand it, how much of the map is copied?
17:24 <micmus> up to 32 keys a map is basically something like {keys, values}, where keys & values are a tuple. Keys are sorted and values are under the index of the appropriate key. The map update (unless adding new keys) will copy the values tuple & allocate a new map value. It's slightly more costly compared to a record - you first need to find the right index in the
17:24 <micmus> values tuple and allocate the additional wrapping structure of the map itself.

20:21 <Ilyes512> hey guys. why does deleting a row twice result in an error instead of returning an tuple {:error, ?}. https://hexdocs.pm/ecto/getting-started.html#deleting-records
20:22 <Ilyes512> I get this error instead of the expected tuple: (Ecto.StaleEntryError) attempted to delete a stale struct:
20:22 <Nicd-> did you use delete!() with exclamation mark?
20:22 m_m joined
20:23 <Ilyes512> no
20:24 <Nicd-> you're deleting from the same struct twice?
20:24 <Ilyes512> so I first got a struct by doing: user = Acme.Accounts.user |> Acme.Repo.get(1)
20:24 <Ilyes512> yes
20:25 <Ilyes512> I call this twice (with the first one succeeding) Acme.Repo.delete user
20:25 <Nicd-> there's an answer here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/elixir-ecto/Q3xTHVuRCeQ
20:25 <Nicd-> "The issue is that we don't really know if it was deleted. IIRC You could have something in your database that forbade the delete and we would get no results while the entry is still there. We don't know the reason (that's why it is an exception and not a changeset error)."
20:28 <Ilyes512> hmm
20:28 <Ilyes512> "could have something in your database that forbade" how?
20:29 <cmk_zzz> Ilyes512: foreign key constraint for example

21:43 <drewolson> benwilson512 have you considering exposing a batch API similar to https://github.com/Shopify/graphql-batch for absinthe? i think it works out quite nicely (in ruby)
21:47 Exuma joined
21:48 <sorentwo> drewolson: There has been discussion about it in the past, and it looks like there is some ecto specific work for it underway https://github.com/absinthe-graphql/absinthe_ecto/blob/master/lib/absinthe/ecto.ex
21:48 <drewolson> sorentwo ah, thanks. the current batching mechanism is fine, too, but i enjoyed working with graphql-batch, and it seems that's also similar to facebook's dataloader
21:49 <sorentwo> Within the app I've been working on I built up my own "preload" resolver, but it only works for one "resolution" at a time.
21:50 <drewolson> sorentwo in a ruby example i was working on, i built my own "has many" resolver that uses postgres window functions to efficiently load the first "page" of data for all parent objects. it was nice to work with graphql-batch while doing that.
21:50 Ilyes512 joined
21:51 <drewolson> i may do something similar in ecto and elixir
21:51 <sorentwo> drewolson: That sounds pretty great. Is that example public anywhere? I'm a fan big fan of window functions.
21:51 <drewolson> one sec, i'll gist it
21:52 <drewolson> https://gist.github.com/drewolson/12e08e8bb24bdce474b05dc2edcf1826
21:52 <drewolson> the `Page.new` at the end is my light weight "learn as i go" version of relay connections
21:53 <drewolson> purely for learning the concepts
21:53 <drewolson> but you could simply fulfill with the list of models rather than wrapping it in anything
21:53 <drewolson> basically i was trying to figure out how to efficiently load relay connections lazily in batch
21:53 <drewolson> and i think window functions are the answer if you're using postgres
21:53 <Exuma> is there a way i can redirect "/" to some other path, like i can in rails, ?
21:54 <drewolson> the most annoying part of the code is sanitizing the sql :)
21:54 <Exuma> using phoenix
21:54 <sorentwo> Something I've found especially useful in Ecto is that you can specify the preload query, which has helped for joins etc, and is marginally helpful in ordering and limiting.
21:55 <drewolson> would that allow you to limit the number of results per foreign key in a single query, though? i'd guess no?
21:56 m_m joined
21:56 <sorentwo> It lets you limit the number of results total, not per-key. You could use a window function for that, like you were doing though.
21:57 <drewolson> yep. i think i'd probably use the same approach in ecto.
22:02 jerel joined
22:03 <drewolson> Exuma: you'd just have an entry in your router like `get "/", PageController, :index`
22:03 <drewolson> just pick the controller and action you want
22:04 <drewolson> unless you want an actually HTTP redirect
22:04 <Exuma> what I mean is, how would I redirect so that I don't technically have "/"
22:04 <Exuma> so it would redirect
22:04 <Exuma> / to /experiments
22:04 <drewolson> i'd probably just redirect from a controller itself.
22:04 <Exuma> ok, i figured as much
22:04 <drewolson> i'm not sure if you can do that directly in the router
