00:12 <Radar> I have some supervisors setup in my application which are responsible for starting processes that fetch events. These events are typically noisy. How can I make it so that during the tests these supervisors are not started automatically?
00:15 <Radar> This is how I'm doing it currently: https://gist.github.com/radar/c4e281ead38d54e289650de72d769bf3

00:49 <Radar> mk[]: well, it works. I just don't know if this is considered "best practice" or not.
00:52 <Ankhers> Radar: What do you mean by noisy?
00:53 <Radar> Ankhers: The events generate a bunch of SQL statements (debug logging is turned on, could be turned off) and there's some other logging. I'm also trying to prevent them from modifying the database when I'm running IEx.

00:58 <Ankhers> Radar: You could do what the mongodb driver does. https://github.com/ericmj/mongodb/blob/master/test/test_helper.exs#L45-L49
00:58 <Ankhers> Not sure if it is going to be viable for what you are doing though.
00:58 <Radar> Ankhers: thank you.
01:00 <mk[]> is there any reason to choose an SQL DB over a combination of Mnesia and Riak?
01:01 <Ankhers> I'm going to go with, more people probably know and understand SQL than Mnesia and Riak. That may not matter if your usecase though.
01:04 <mk[]> learning inertia is the only argument I've heard so far
01:04 <mk[]> I wonder if there are any technical reasons
01:05 Cohedrin joined
01:05 <Ankhers> I think it largely depends on your application needs.
01:06 <Ankhers> It is like asking if Postgres or Mongo is the better database. Without knowing your needs, it is impossible to say.
01:06 <sorentwo> Most applications don't need(want) to start out with a cluster of 3 databases, which is the minimum for a production Riak setup IIRC.
01:07 <mk[]> sorentwo: I thought riak works with one node. why wouldn't it?
01:08 <mk[]> Ankhers: if the DB needs to be distributed, SQL has clear disadvantages, right?
01:09 <sorentwo> Riak is geared toward fault tolerance and clustering, for the cluster to work you need three instances.
01:09 <sorentwo> I'm sure it works with one node, but you lose most of the point of running Riak.
01:10 <Ankhers> I just read something from 2012 saying they suggest a minimum of 5 nodes for production.
01:10 <Ankhers> Not sure if that is still the case.
01:10 <sorentwo> Ankhers: Even better, that shows why there is so much resistance to starting new projects with Riak.
01:11 <Ankhers> As for distributed SQL, most applications won't need something like that. And if they do, I'm going to be honest, I don't know much about distributed SQL.
01:12 <mk[]> Ankhers: neither do I, but I thought the whole reason for the myriad of NoSQL DBs was SQL's inadequate distribution ability
01:13 <mk[]> sorentwo: clustering adds complexity, but it's a necessary evil
01:13 <sorentwo> mk[]: Perhaps for the companies/apps you're working with, but it hasn't been in most of my experiences.
01:13 <Ankhers> I'm not a huge database person, but I don't think there is anything inherint in SQL that prevents it from being distributed.
01:14 <sorentwo> I'm not against clustering btw, I was using that as an example of where non-sql tools get increased friction.
01:14 <arpunk> mk[]: If you need distributed SQL: https://github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach
01:14 <sorentwo> There are companies like citus that offer a good distributed postgres solution as well.
01:15 <tristan__> postgres has more features and can do complex queries. mnesia can be a pain in the ass. riak is a key/value store
01:17 wpcarro joined
01:17 <mk[]> tristan__: why can mnesia be a pain in the ass?
01:19 <tristan__> the whole schemas thing can get messed up and confusing. and that is when dealing with just 1 node. the default backend is also highly limited. but now you can use leveldb, but still have to deal with schemas and want to stay away from using it distributed
01:20 <mk[]> that sucks. ETS works well enough as a distributed RAM cache?
01:21 <tristan__> hm? it isn't distributed
01:21 <mk[]> oh
01:22 <Ankhers> You could build one on top of ETS.
01:23 <mk[]> isn't it what Mnesia supposed to be good for?
01:24 <Ankhers> You have to deal with split-brain yourself with Mnesia, don't you?
01:24 <mk[]> never used it, doing research
01:27 wpcarro joined
01:28 <tristan__> not really. it can work for distributed use cases, but not ones with heavy load or running in like the cloud
01:29 codestorm joined
01:32 <mk[]> tristan__: what about couchbase?
01:33 kronicdeth joined
01:35 <mk[]> I was turned off by the fact that couchbase has no official erlang client, though it's written (partly) in Erlang
01:36 <Ankhers> https://gist.github.com/ankhers/27c6fee6f4773eaf96b44de4e05e3180 -- Does anyone know if this is supposed to be valid Elixir? It just returns nil if it is supposed to go into the error branch.
01:38 <asonge> hrm, didn't know that the body of a clause could be empty
01:38 <asonge> but if it can, and it's not a parser error, nil would be expected.

01:43 cschneid_ joined
01:43 jhack joined
01:43 <Ankhers> It does return nil. And only the last body can be empty.
01:43 <Ankhers> I'm just wondering if that is expected behaviour, or if I should file a bug.
01:45 mika__ joined
01:48 <asonge> i'd ping back. it might be either a parser or compiler bug of some kind, but who knows. i'm leaning bug. can always file a ticket as well.

02:34 <asonge> laut: i wrote a few regular expressions for lifting warnings and errors into vscode problems area, i can dig them up.
02:34 Cohedrin joined
02:34 <asonge> laut: you could piece stuff together from what i've got here: https://asonge.github.io/2017/04/05/support-vscode-problems-with-mix-tasks/
02:35 <asonge> multiple patterns allow you to match multiple lines down, so if you need a single expression over a blob of text, it'll need some slight tweaking
02:36 Machete joined
02:36 <asonge> build and test are the ones you want to look at, dialyzer warnings are a bit more basic.

04:01 <iFire> sorentwo: hey
04:01 <iFire> are you still around?
04:02 <iFire> mk[]: hey
04:02 wpcarro joined
04:02 Cohedrin joined
04:02 <mk[]> iFire: yeah
04:02 <iFire> so I've been trying to write an elixir driver for snappydata
04:02 <iFire> it's a cluster sql database
04:03 wwwd joined
04:03 <iFire> it's faster than cockroachdb
04:03 <iFire> but cockroachdb has a easier deploy
04:03 <iFire> and ... cockroachdb is newer.. more modern
04:03 <iFire> but snappydata is more optimized. like literally 10-15 years of optimizations
04:03 <iFire> or more
04:04 <iFire> I saw your conversation about cluster sql database
04:04 <mk[]> iFire: I'd like to see something like distributed DETS with a Rust backend
04:04 <iFire> but I'm hitting a roadblock where I got parts of it working, like sql queries working
04:04 <mk[]> SQL just doesn't get me excited
04:04 <iFire> mk[]: what's your goal?
04:05 <iFire> I think one of my goal is to get something done with my project as I'm really not wanting to be a database vendor
04:05 <mk[]> no goal, just wanna be able to use data structures to model data
04:05 Cohedrin joined
04:05 <iFire> mk[]: well the relational model is legitimate
04:06 <iFire> straight database structures require complicated paxoes like syncronizations
04:06 <iFire> I mean straight data structures
04:06 <iFire> mk[]: are you familiar with riak ensemble
04:07 <iFire> it provides a consistent key value db
04:07 <mk[]> iFire: no, let me take a look
04:07 <iFire> while doing all the paxos stuf
04:07 <iFire> so you can rip out like most of riak's tooling
04:07 <iFire> and just concentrate on key value
04:07 <iFire> it still has the problem with requiring 3 nodes, but you can put 3 docker nodes on one computer
04:07 <iFire> so it's not impossible
04:08 <iFire> https://github.com/basho/riak_ensemble
04:08 <mk[]> yeah, riak is a DHT, I'd like to see other DSs like linked list, set, tree etc
04:08 <iFire> huh?
04:08 <mk[]> be able to distribute regular data structures
04:08 <iFire> I'm pretty sure you can do linked tables using a key value store
04:09 <mk[]> just a crazy idea
04:09 <iFire> linked lists
04:09 Tica2 joined
04:09 <iFire> oh I've been doing linked lists by doing gets from multiple computers and doing the only one person can modify thing
04:09 mika__ joined
04:09 <iFire> and sets
04:10 <wwwd> I'm following elixir-elm-tutorial. My tests all pass and the code is running fine on my local box but when I try and push it to heroku I am getting this error: "missing :adapter configuration in config :platform, Platform.Repo". Anyone have any idea what would cause this?
04:10 <iFire> mk[]: so the idea for sets is that there's basically a global lock. and you just modify the key value
04:10 <iFire> and just use elixir's hashset
04:11 <iFire> so obviously reading doesn't require locking
04:11 <mk[]> iFire: MapSet?
04:11 <iFire> https://hexdocs.pm/elixir/MapSet.html
04:11 <iFire> and I'm pretty sure there's a property of a set that you can do a map reduce like scheme. I'm hazy on it.
04:13 <mk[]> iFire: it can be converted to a list, and list functions can be applied to it
04:13 <iFire> it's called strong consistency when you do it via a paxos algorithm, but it's functionally equivilent to one person editing it even though you're on like 50 computers
04:14 <mk[]> I don't know paxos algo
04:14 <asonge> yeah, paxos and raft are consensus algorithms and don't scale up very well
04:14 <iFire> neither does most of the computer science world
04:14 <iFire> they get it wrong multiple times
04:14 <iFire> :S
04:14 <asonge> as far as a linked list, that's basically what the blockchain is, but a linked list is pretty impossible in a crdt or something like that.
04:14 <iFire> they get it wrong that a company actually writes articles about it jokingly
04:15 <iFire> get it so wrong*
04:15 <iFire> and reviewing many distributed databases mockly
04:15 Cohedrin joined
04:15 <asonge> btw, there are some good erlang crdts that are usable
04:15 <iFire> link
04:16 <asonge> https://hex.pm/packages/types
04:16 <asonge> this is an expansion of the riak crdts that Chris Meiklejohn uses in all his lasp-related projects.
04:16 <asonge> huge number of distributed types in there
04:16 <iFire> asonge: I looked at how riak did it, and ensemble takes the approach that you have 3-5-7 concensus groups, but it's spread over say 50 machines
04:16 <iFire> so the group is chunked out
04:16 <asonge> right, but that's doing something nontrivial on top of something nontrivial :)
04:17 <iFire> and I think that's how they get past the slow down
04:17 <asonge> you don't want to choose a number higher than 7, and 3 is good for speed with decent safety, 5 is good for most anything.
04:17 <iFire> asonge: well I was suggesting just taking their ensemble algo and import it
04:17 <iFire> if one doesn't want riak
04:17 <iFire> like a mix deps import
04:18 <iFire> also crdt is different from consensur algorithms
04:19 <iFire> I believe crdts are based on eventual consistency, and paxos / raft are based on leaders
04:19 <iFire> so they pick different tradeoffs
04:20 <asonge> it's not a consensus algorithm.
04:20 <asonge> yeah
04:20 <iFire> asonge: are you familiar with any of this? https://files.readme.io/ba9c077-Architecture_Diagram.png
04:20 <asonge> very roughly.
04:21 <asonge> i stopped following distributed stuff as closely about a year ago, but i still read a paper a month
04:21 elgenie joined
04:21 <iFire> asonge: yeah I was thinking of either going with a sql db or riak ensemble (maybe embedded or with riak)
04:21 nomicflux joined
04:21 <asonge> why are you going after distribution?
04:22 <mk[]> asonge: fault-tolerance, lower latency?
04:22 <asonge> postgresql can take you really far before you really have to pay that distribution complexity cost.
04:23 <iFire> because I want to be a cluster master. Gotta catch them all. Actually I just want the thing I'm working on to scale more than one super beefy machine.
04:23 <iFire> and postgresql doesn't actually scale
04:23 <asonge> postgresql 10 is going to be interesting. there's a consensus algorithm baked in that'll be available
04:23 <iFire> I mean there's a magical switch that turns it from 10000 ops to like 120,000 but that's just one computer.
04:25 <iFire> asonge: link?
04:25 skace joined
04:25 <asonge> iFire: i'd almost prefer to break functionality out by type before distributing a ton of homogenous nodes. it'd be fast and would be easy enough to buy you the time to switch the hottest part to something more complicated
04:26 <iFire> synchronous_commit = off <- it's this switch btw
04:26 <iFire> on postgresql
04:26 <iFire> https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.4/static/wal-async-commit.html
04:27 <asonge> hrm, i thought i read it was going to have node states and clustering on pg10, but it seems i can't find any info on it. i might've been wrong.
04:27 <iFire> asonge: you might be thinking about postgresql-xl
04:27 <asonge> most of my interests in distribution were about unreliably-networked apps
04:28 <iFire> but that's another complicated multi server stuff
04:28 <iFire> riak looks fairly simple
04:28 <asonge> oh it is, but it's also somewhat restrictive
04:28 <iFire> compared to postgresql-xl's one sync node + backup, one master + backup, n and its backup worker noders
04:29 <iFire> cockroach's deployment workflow looks better, where you just deploy n servers
04:30 <mk[]> iFire: thoughts on Couchbase?
04:30 <iFire> snappydata requires a sync node (also spark!), locators and n number of database nodes
04:30 <asonge> iFire: ah, some postgres-xl stuff is going to be merged back into postgres core, and there will be a node registry, as it's required to get logical replication to work well.
04:30 <iFire> mk[]: why not riak?
04:30 <iFire> I don't see much diference between them
04:31 <asonge> mk[]: i'm not a fan of couchdb, it violates a lot of formalisms, which makes its safety kinda...wrong.
04:31 <iFire> the better question is not syclladb (there's an ecto driver for it)
04:31 <iFire> http://www.scylladb.com/
04:31 <asonge> unless they changed the way they resolve write conflicts
04:32 <mk[]> iFire: RAM caching?
04:32 <iFire> mk[]: ?
04:32 <asonge> caches are just another word for distributed data.
04:32 <iFire> well computers are clusters in a single node anyways
04:33 <iFire> even with the 4 cores we have on desktops
04:33 <mk[]> iFire: Couchbase has a distributed RAM cache built-in
04:33 <asonge> ouch.
04:33 <iFire> mk[]: yeah I can also run my db in ram too
04:33 <mk[]> asonge: what do you mean by safety?
04:33 <* asonge> wouldn't want to run that.
04:33 <asonge> mk[]: that the data can become inconsistent even if you do everything right on your end.
04:33 <iFire> that's why I wrote the snappydata ecto, but I don't have enough help to get over the hump
04:34 <iFire> it just means async writing to disk
04:34 <asonge> like, there's no way to have master-master replication in couchdb and not lose data
04:34 <iFire> like that above postgresql option
04:34 <asonge> even if all writes are observed and there isn't a split-brain
04:35 <mk[]> asonge: Couchbase does have a smell. They claim both high availability and consistency
04:35 <iFire> :)
04:35 <asonge> yeah, that's also known as a lie :)
04:36 <asonge> basically, if you manage to write to the same key on 2 masters, the last write on the one with the most writes since they last saw each other wins. but if it's a tie even after that, the entry with the biggest checksum wins.
04:38 <mk[]> all of those algorithms give me heachaches :)
04:38 wpcarro joined
04:39 <asonge> i think you should decide on what properties you actually want, and then shop for the db based on that.
04:40 <iFire> asonge: I don't think he actually has an application
04:40 <asonge> :)
04:40 <asonge> architecture astronauting is fun
04:40 <iFire> asonge: can I pm you
04:40 <asonge> sure?
04:41 <mk[]> well, I wanna build an email server, and want a simple DB for it
04:41 <mk[]> no reason for it to be distributed, but it'd be nice for fault-tolerance
04:44 <iFire> I don't see how an email server is interesting, but people have other tastes
04:44 <asonge> for an email server, i'd personally consider using something like postgresql for all the metadata and storing object data in an object store like s3 or google's whatever or riak's large object thing
04:45 <mk[]> iFire: what do you find interesting then?
04:45 <iFire> I'm interested in multiplayer computer games
04:45 <asonge> advantage there is that metadata is lightweight, can be replicated quickly in read-replicas, and you can probably shove whatever data is really "hot" into some other kind of database (depending on access pattern)
04:46 Cohedrin joined
04:46 <iFire> also email has a property of write only
04:46 <mk[]> iFire: I see. I don't play games, haha. But I like communication systems, and view computers as fancy telephones
04:46 <iFire> immutable
04:46 <* asonge> is more on mk[]'s side.
04:46 <asonge> i think there are a few people interested in an elixir MTA
04:48 steffkes joined
04:48 steffkes joined
04:48 <mk[]> MTA?
04:49 <asonge> mail transfer agent...the whole suite of smtp/imap/spam-filter/etc
04:49 <mk[]> asonge: the access pattern will probably be websockets, so the client is immediately notified without long polling
04:50 <asonge> yeah, that's the easy part :)
04:51 <asonge> though you'd probably want to use websockets as a control channel and have the client pull data via web request
04:51 <asonge> for the email messages and images and downloads and such
04:51 <mk[]> asonge: I found gen_smtp, seems to work fine, though I haven't tested it much
04:51 akeating joined
04:51 <iFire> mk[]: phoenix has a channels implementation
04:52 <iFire> it's based on websocketw
04:52 <iFire> websockets*
04:52 <iFire> it's a pub sub thing
04:52 <iFire> probably better than using the erlang version of zeromq 4
04:53 <iFire> already has distribution over n nodes baked in
04:54 <mk[]> iFire: I may just use Plug without Phoenix https://hex.pm/packages/web_socket
04:54 <iFire> I'm saying phoenix + channels because in 2015 they wrote about how they can send 2 million messages
04:57 <mk[]> iFire: maybe so, I'm not interested in performance, but simplicity

10:16 <steffkes> hey guys, hopefuly easy question - while getting along with elixir and loving pattern matching, i'm finding myself often in a situation where my code looks like this:
10:16 <steffkes> defp handle(data = %{"type" => "event_callback", "event" => %{"type" => "message", "subtype" => "group_leave", "user" => user_id}}) do
10:16 <steffkes> how do you typically format this? because this line counts 137 and there are others which are probably even longer than this. but already at this length i find it hard to read
10:17 <steffkes> i did check christopheradams/elixir_style_guide but didn't see a section that would apply. or did i just miss it?
10:18 <ciawal> you could have that function call another one
10:18 <ciawal> passing only the event mpa
10:18 <ciawal> map
10:18 <ciawal> then you have less repeated and shorter matching
10:20 <steffkes> hm yeah .. you mean to pass along the matching of the event structure to another function? didn't think about that
10:21 <steffkes> still feels a bit quirky .. because not really needed. but actually makes the code more pretty, that is right
10:21 <ciawal> if you're handling multiple event types then it's better for sure
10:21 jkreeftmeijer joined
10:22 <steffkes> i do, or actually plan to. to me it feels more natural the way i've pasted above. because i have one function that either does match or doesn't. otherwise a catch-all is matched.
10:22 akeating joined
10:22 <steffkes> if i'd refactor the matching for event .. i'd have another level of indirection. and would need a catch-all for this as well
10:23 <ciawal> well I think this is better
10:23 <ciawal> now you differentiate between receiving a event_callback you don't match, or any other kind of message
10:23 <ciawal> with your current pattern you can't tell the difference
10:23 <ciawal> in terms of error handling
10:25 <steffkes> okay, i can go with that. at least for the events .. now i have another kind of command message, which doesn't have a nested struct .. just a few properties, like this:
10:25 <steffkes> defp handle(data = %{"command" => "/test-01", "user_id" => user_id, "text" => text, "response_url" => response_url}) do
10:25 <steffkes> the line is not that long (112 chars) but already is pretty long.
10:26 <steffkes> i probably can remove the "data = " part since i don't need it anymore. but the question still applies for me
10:26 <ciawal> I think I'd leave that as-is personally
10:26 <steffkes> or is the answer kinda always like "use another function to get a shorter pattern"? :D
10:27 <ciawal> well, you can format it as you like ofc, but I don't think there's any set style for it
10:27 <ciawal> to me that's not quite long enough to split yet I think, especially if you can remove the data
10:27 gvaughn joined
10:28 dimitarvp joined
10:29 <mika__> one thing you could do if you want to make it shorter is remove anything that isn't strictly used for switching
10:29 mbwe joined
10:29 <mika__> for example, (it's an assumption) you could remove `user_id`
10:29 <mika__> and in the function instead use `data.user_id`
10:30 <steffkes> yeah indeed, that is what i had in the beginning .. and then i switched to using that style, but i don't remember why ;o which is why those lines get that long
10:30 <ciawal> you could match on _ to do this also if you wanted
10:31 nd____ joined
10:31 <mika__> ^
10:31 <ciawal> defp handle(%{"command" => "/test-01", "user_id" => _, "text" => _, "response_url" => _}) do
10:31 <steffkes> hm .. okay, i'll play around with it a bit more and see how it goes along

12:37 <thurloat[m]> elixir newbie here, have a question about importing. cowboy has a urlencode function in its cow_uri module, but I can't for the life of me get it imported to use.
12:37 PaReeOhNos joined
12:37 <thurloat[m]> Is there anything special you have to do to import erlang stuff in elixir?
12:39 <Theophane> thurloat[m]: has `import :cow_uri` worked?
12:40 <thurloat[m]> ...
12:40 <thurloat[m]> thanks, lol. I was trying to namespace it
12:42 <Theophane> :)
12:43 <* nox> wonders which spec that follows.
12:43 <thurloat[m]> and it looks like I can just invoke cow_uri functions bare (urlencode(x)) vs. with the full path :cow_uri.urlencode ?
12:43 <thurloat[m]> at least that's what my linter is saying
12:44 <micmus> well, that's what importing a module does
12:45 <thurloat[m]> right! I'd `require` if I wanted to have the module name too, right?
12:45 <nox> Oh,
12:45 <nox> Cowboy uses W3C specs, ah ah ah ah
12:46 <micmus> thurloat[m]: no, you can "just" call any module as long as it is compiled.
12:47 <micmus> import is to enable calling "bare" functions from the module, require is to enable macros from the module
12:47 <Theophane> thurloat[m]: nah "require" imports macros
12:47 <thurloat[m]> flips desk
12:48 <thurloat[m]> thanks for the help, all. I'm at least moving down the road :)
12:48 <benwilson512> Theophane: when you say "require imports macros" what do you mean?
12:48 <benwilson512> if you do `require Foo` and Foo has a macro bar, you still need to do `Foo.bar`
12:48 <benwilson512> not just `bar`
12:49 <benwilson512> import imports macros, require merely permits you to call them
12:49 <Theophane> oops
12:49 <Theophane> sorry
12:49 <benwilson512> thurloat[m]: if the module is loaded in the VM, you can always just call functions on the module
12:49 <benwilson512> no requiring / importing / anything else is necessary
12:50 <thurloat[m]> benwilson512: thanks for the clarification.
12:50 <thurloat[m]> so without doing `import :cow_uri`, I should just be able to invoke `:cow_uri.urlencode` anywhere.

14:14 <hotpancakes> Hi, quick question. `0 < x < 10` when x = 5 seems to be valid syntactically, but unexpectedly returns false. Any idea why?
14:15 <Nicd-> it probably evaluates one side first into true and then compares true with a number
14:15 <hotpancakes> Ah, okay
14:15 <benwilson512> hotpancakes: you want `0 < x and x < 10`
14:16 <hotpancakes> benwilson512: yup, I was just curious as to why the former evaluated to false

16:06 <renl> alisdair: what do you think are the possible pitfalls of using elixir/erlang in a robotics project? thinking of using elixir in a robotics project for the concurrency and the supervision tree, but i was thinking it is not widely used and there is probably a reason
16:06 <icecreamcohen> benwilson512: It almost invariably means you’re not doing something you should be.
16:07 hotpancakes joined
16:07 <alisdair> i think it's not widely used because it's not widely known

16:08 steffkes joined
16:08 <icecreamcohen> benwilson512: We deployed an elixir spam system before, and it was like, 20x faster than the one it replaced. But we only changed the thrift server.

16:13 <benwilson512> indeed
16:14 <notriddle> Call me cynical, but I figure the more optimization passes the Erlang compiler and BEAM runtime grow, the more unpredictable the performance is going to get. I think it's already possible to get yourself into a situation where removing a function call makes your code slower...

16:33 cevado joined
16:33 <icecreamcohen> in my above story, we were omitting 90% of events. When we re-added them, perf was only 10% faster.
16:33 <micmus> notriddle: though, I understand your point - e.g. lately there's a lot of C programs broken because compiler took advantage of some undefined behaviour
16:35 <notriddle> That's good, because I'm not sure what point I was actually trying to make. 😄
16:37 <icecreamcohen> I *think* you were making the point that performance is hard enough, and becomes even harder when the whole environment makes choices you might not be aware of.
16:37 <icecreamcohen> which makes sense.

18:10 <MononcQc> josevalim, yeah I think handle_cast still has its place

18:11 <MononcQc> code_change and terminate being optional is okay with me though

18:12 <MononcQc> Difference between calls coming from the API and those from outside the API

18:18 <josevalim> my point of view between call and cast is that call is prefer most times and i would prefer to put the spotlight on call
18:18 <MononcQc> for me it's the difference between "I want a response" and "fire and forget"

18:22 <josevalim> MononcQc: i was going to propose to keep call and info around but if there is no consensus, i will just leave it be
18:23 milad joined
18:23 <MononcQc> yeah I don't quite get what it would yield
18:23 <MononcQc> I,m still confused as hell as to why people weren't just okay removing the -behaviour(gen_server) line if they hated the warnings so much
18:23 <asonge> MononcQc: it's why i hopped on elixir so fast, 0.12 days. i finally felt that someone smarter than me had set up tooling well, and i didn't get a handful of parts that i could assemble in all sorts of ways.
18:23 <MononcQc> it would have saved everyone a lot of time and given the same result for the most part
18:24 <asonge> it bothers me that people think it's a good thing that it can take a day to set up a project the way you want it. and it's always going to have downsides :/
18:24 <MononcQc> asonge, yeah. That stuff prompted me to sink a lot of time on rebar3, which hopefully leveled the playing field a bit
18:25 <josevalim> MononcQc: the other option is to ensure we emit proper warnings for missing handle_call, handle_info and handle_cast and if someone wants to skip those they can define a mini_gen_server with only the stuff we need
18:25 <asonge> i hope a lot of people benefit from it. some seem to have bought into using hex with rebar, so that's nice.
18:27 <MononcQc> josevalim, I would have kept the warning and made noops of them if we really really had to make them optional
18:28 <MononcQc> it all feels so wrong from a fail-fast perspective though
18:28 <MononcQc> handle_call with no impl should {noreply, State} to let the caller die, what the fuck is it doing anyway
18:28 <MononcQc> but letting the server explode kills more processes so thats good
18:28 <josevalim> shouldn't handle_call and handle_cast just fail?
18:28 <MononcQc> yes they should
18:28 <MononcQc> I'm saying if you had to provide a default impl
18:28 <josevalim> i think people were really insecure about making handle_info just fail though?
18:29 griffinbyatt joined
18:29 <MononcQc> like I'd just keep handle_info silent and make a very loud compile warning
18:29 <MononcQc> I find it stupid to remove the compile time warning to replace it with a run-time one that takes resources for the same reuslt
18:29 <MononcQc> it's bad
18:29 dch_ joined
18:29 hotpancakes joined
18:29 <josevalim> MononcQc: well, one is always triggered, the other only when needed :P
18:29 <MononcQc> like if you have to make it ignore shit, tell about it at compile time
18:29 <MononcQc> if you don't want a warning, fix your code
18:29 <MononcQc> otherwise deal with the warning
18:30 <MononcQc> I'd rather have it once at compile time than 50 times an hour in a log file that takes resources
18:30 <MononcQc> I don't give a shit if it looks prettier when it compiles without warning, it's a worse behaviour IMOP
18:30 <MononcQc> IMO*
18:31 <MononcQc> like as a user, what the hell can I do with a log that tells me to patch code?
18:31 <asonge> MononcQc: pretty sure you're the sane one here.
18:31 apotry joined
18:31 <josevalim> well, supposedly it is not mean to be called
18:31 <josevalim> i am not sure if the default that everyone uses is any better or worse
18:31 <josevalim> which is to just discard everything
18:32 <MononcQc> yeah that's my point there. If there is no good default then what the fuck are we doing providing one?
18:32 <MononcQc> now the default is "discard everything and warn at runtime"
18:33 <josevalim> is it better than discarding everything? because that's effectively what everyone uses?
18:34 <asonge> you guys have a link to the original argument about this, for context?
18:34 <josevalim> asonge: you don't want to go there
18:34 <josevalim> you are welcome

18:45 junsuiji1 joined
18:45 wpcarro joined
18:46 <jer> that moment when you can almost audibly hear when a coworker (a clojure programmer) "clicks" with what supervision trees are and why they're useful, and on how GenStage works... he's just now itching to go write more elixir code heh
18:47 <josevalim> MonononcQc: good points. but I still think you did not consider the argument that it is not supposed to warn at all
18:47 <josevalim> MonononcQc: I am not trying to be difficult btw, I don't have a horse on this race, I think. if I do it is a small one
18:47 <MonononcQc> "You could also argue that no warning is acceptable (I don't really agree either, but can begrudgingly concede if you instead mention it a lot in the docs and then point people to it)"
18:48 <MonononcQc> the usual path goes "you can send messages with !" and then you start using OTP and the messages vanish silently
18:48 <MonononcQc> so I prefer a warning
18:48 <MonononcQc> If you don't provide a warning in the code or compiler or run time, then maybe in the doc is fine
18:48 MotherFlojo joined
18:48 <MonononcQc> but I'd rather get compile-time warnings
18:50 rkazak joined
18:57 <asonge> josevalim: there is something nice about defoverridable (and also that it's superpowers are mostly hidden from most mortals) in letting you experiment with this stuff yourself.
18:58 m_m joined
18:59 wpcarro joined
19:04 <ejpcmac> MonononcQc: I’ve read some of your comments on GitHub, and I completely agree with you. When I started to learn Elixir a few weeks ago, one of the cool stuffs I found about the language is that this is a compiled language, so you can get compile-time warnings and errors. I think this helps you to write better and safer code, and making some warnings related to implementation to be at runtime rather than compile-time is a nonsense imo.
19:05 <MonononcQc> good to hear
19:07 cevado joined
19:07 <josevalim> MonononcQc: I am still not convinced because I think I value the trade-offs slightly different than you but I think your replies definitely covered all bases
19:08 <josevalim> I still think saying you have to imeplement handle_info, handle_call and handle_cast before you even get started is just too much
19:08 <josevalim> I think the fact people have to resort to templates is almost always a flaw somewhere
19:09 elgenie joined
19:09 <MonononcQc> I think that could be addressed by the nature of the callback warning
19:09 <MonononcQc> but the machinery may not be all in place for it
19:09 <MonononcQc> like having an optional callback could just warn with something like "the <X> callback is missing and a default option will be provided"
19:10 <MonononcQc> I figure the thing you see as problematic is that the warning looks a lot like an error to the newcomer
19:10 <asonge> MonononcQc: you could also just suppress the warning in the module using some module attribute.
19:10 <josevalim> yup, and most people should aim for the code to compile without warnings
19:10 <asonge> which is an acknowledgement that you know what the behavior is.
19:10 <MonononcQc> yeah but that doesn't fly well from the newcomer approach
19:10 <MonononcQc> (the attributes that is)
19:11 <asonge> i think it fulfills a requirement that writing code is a dialogue with the computer :)
19:11 <micmus> josevalim: I'm not entirely convinced to logging because of one thing - if I implement one case, now I loose all the logging, etc
19:11 craigp joined
19:11 <josevalim> micmus: a very good argument too
19:11 <micmus> asonge: I guess supressing warning with an attribute, wouldn't be much different from proving the default implementation
19:11 <MonononcQc> people should get acquainted with the 3rd/4th option of gen_server:start_link that gives you a possible trace of all the eevents going on :V
19:12 <MonononcQc> (that and the sys module, the wonder module)
19:12 OtherAllan joined
19:12 <ryanwinchester> can anybody confirm that using cast_assoc along with Repo.update _should_ insert a new associated model?
19:12 <micmus> It could make sense to have something like GenServer.default_handle_info/2 for cases where the default is provided, so it's easy to delagate to it
19:12 <josevalim> ryanwinchester: it should if there are no errors
19:13 <josevalim> micmus: yes
19:13 <josevalim> warn_unhandled_info rather
19:13 <micmus> right now with elixir that would be using super() for the pokemon clause, but I'm not a huge fan of that, and it's not used widely
19:15 <ryanwinchester> so I have Registration.complete_changeset here: http://s.ryanwinchester.ca/223t2C1J2a2C
19:15 <tristan__> I think it should keep the messages in the queue forever if you don't handle them
19:15 Machete joined
19:16 laut joined
19:16 <ryanwinchester> this should fail if a "user" map is not provided, and then i would assume if it succeeds, that i would have a new user
19:16 <tristan__> but would require conditionally compiling the gen_server code to only match on the functions you export :(
19:16 <Zarathu> is there a "standard" way for phoenix controllers to respond to different formats? json/html
19:16 <Zarathu> google is giving me a few different ways of doing this
19:16 <josevalim> tristan__: impossible with downs for example and then you may have a leak for unknown messages
19:17 <chrismccord> Zarathu : yes, but it depends if you need to perform different code paths or fetch different data
19:17 <tristan__> josevalim: right, as you'd expect from sending messages you don't match for
19:17 <josevalim> *memory leak
19:17 <chrismccord> if it's only data representation, you can pass a tuple to render, which will take care of rendering the corresponding template
19:17 <chrismccord> `render(conn, :index, ...)`
19:18 <chrismccord> will render index.html or index.json for example
19:18 <tristan__> if you want a catch all in a receive that does nothing you have to define it, why should gen_server have one by default
19:18 <Zarathu> chrismccord: the controller action *does* the same thing if it has the same name
19:18 <Zarathu> passing a tuple to render though... example?
19:20 <micmus> Zarathu: the main problem is that usually you need to do widely different things for regular http & json api endpoints
19:20 <chrismccord> Zarathu : sorry, passing an *atom to render
19:20 <chrismccord> example agove
19:20 <micmus> so it's not just about the format
19:20 <Zarathu> ahh!
19:20 <tristan__> weird, I completely disagree with the idea of not including cast by default. I almost think beginners should get the feeling they should always use cast, not call, hehe
19:20 <chrismccord> Zarathu : you could pass the get_format(conn) to your acdtions and match on it in different clauses
19:20 <micmus> e.g. for html you need to set flash messages, or redirect, which does not happen for REST APIs
19:20 <chrismccord> but typically as micmus said, they deviate enough that separate controllers is generally the way to go
19:20 <chrismccord> different pipelines and such
19:21 <tristan__> oh, hm, but I've not seen the overuse of cast that you have, josevalim , so I may be wrong
19:21 <Zarathu> ah, right
19:21 <Zarathu> separate controllers presents the problem of how to name them if they essentially do the same thing
19:21 <chrismccord> tristan__ : add me to the list of people that see beginners abuse cast to their detriment
19:21 <micmus> And separate controllers play nicely with 1.3 contexts where all your domain logic is out of the controller, so the controller only handles rendering
19:22 <Zarathu> in my particular case, i not only need to have an html index, but also a json api index, and also a csv download index
19:22 <tristan__> chrismccord: interesting
19:22 <josevalim> tristan__: why would you use cast? it doesn't fail if the process you are casting does not exist anymore
19:22 <micmus> json & csv or xml play nice together and atom render is great for this
19:22 <josevalim> it doesn't provide back-pressure
19:22 <chrismccord> tristan__ : I see folks treat it as async for rolfscale
19:22 <micmus> but html is a different beast in my experience
19:22 <tristan__> I'm used to running into code that overuses calls and ends up with a bunch of unncessary bottlenecks
19:22 <Zarathu> ah ok, so `render conn, :index, objects: objects` should do this automatically
19:23 <chrismccord> but there's no backpressure and I see apps with 100k's of messages for these servers in the msquee
19:23 <chrismccord> Zarathu yes exactly
19:23 <Zarathu> would I use pattern matching for this? e.g., `render("index.html"), do: ...; render("index.csv"), do...`
19:23 <Zarathu> err, def*
19:23 <josevalim> tristan__: right, then you measure, find those and improve it accordingly
19:23 <chrismccord> yes exactly
19:24 <Zarathu> gotcha! cool!
19:24 <tristan__> josevalim: when I don't care.
19:24 <chrismccord> Zarathu and your index.html can be an index.html.eex template if you'd like
19:24 <tristan__> if i can I'll do a call with spawn->gen_server:reply
19:24 <josevalim> sometimes you have bottlenecks and you still need replies
19:24 <Zarathu> yes, right
19:24 <Zarathu> I can't wait for phoenix 1.3 btw
19:24 <chrismccord> Zarathu : mostly baked if you arent' using channels
19:25 <Zarathu> what do you mean, baked
19:25 <chrismccord> channel api won't be changing, but I need to finalize some js bits for some internal changes
19:25 <ryanwinchester> i can't figure out why my cast_assoc isn't working :(
19:25 <chrismccord> Zarathu : baked as in "done", "ready", etc
19:25 <Zarathu> ah right. the context thing is pretty exciting
