<ashkitten> ugh, i don't want to learn to use code with gstreamer
<lovesegfault> ashkitten: I had to recently
<lovesegfault> it was painful
<ashkitten> it's a very cool software! and i would like to be able to do this very simple seeming thing with just gst-launch-1.0
<ashkitten> all i need is an element that's exactly like the tcpserversrc element except it can handle clients disconnecting and reconnecting

<worldofpeace> ok
<worldofpeace> so
<worldofpeace> the upgrades
<worldofpeace> didn't include a punctuation module

<worldofpeace> __monty__: what do u mean?
<worldofpeace> the post is public
<cole-h> "cyborg that does lots of important NixOS stuff"
<eyJhb> "So it it this world of peace. that is a diva"
<cole-h> how'd I do
<eyJhb> Easy
<cole-h> diva cyborg****
<lovesegfault> I don't want her to think I'm on an online robot diva chat
<cole-h> lovesegfault: Why not?
<cole-h> ;P
<__monty__> worldofpeace: mastodon.social wants me to sign up.
<lovesegfault> s/think/know/
<__monty__> And I love the mastodon marketing but I don't feel a need to toot/tweet and I'm disillusioned by federation.
<cole-h> __monty__: Strange, I don't get that when I open in a private tab
<worldofpeace> yeah, it should be public
<worldofpeace> __monty__: if you mean how I look now, here https://mastodon.social/web/statuses/104278018885037926
<__monty__> Hmm, that url works fine. Guess you deleted the other?
<worldofpeace> ohhh
<cole-h> Oh
<cole-h> Yeah
<__monty__> Top joke though.
<cole-h> wop made a punctuation boo-boo that I pointed out, so had to repost >:)
<worldofpeace> It was a very on brand move for cole-h tbh
<worldofpeace> lovesegfault: so, as eyJhb said, that's worldofpeace, this is what we call a diva. but not like an online robot diva chat, don't get it twisted. they wish they could get ilke me
<__monty__> I'm pretty sure the ASMR crowd has a subset that'd be into these audios.

<ashkitten> what is divaspeaking
<__monty__> I fear only checking out the mastodon post will clarify that.
<__monty__> Or toot, rather.
<ashkitten> i uh
<ashkitten> did
<__monty__> Well toot*s*
<ashkitten> which clarified nothing
<worldofpeace> U just have to listen to find out
<ashkitten> actually listening might've made me more confused
<worldofpeace> ok, I'll clear things up

<ashkitten> but i'll wait for you to clear things up like you said
<worldofpeace> ashkitten: it's there
<ashkitten> i don't know if that was meant to actually clear anything up actually
<ashkitten> or if it was and i'm not getting it
<ashkitten> i'm tired and my brain is fried from gstreamer on top of being broken like normal
<worldofpeace> so basically, one month is a long time to be away from nixos. I haven't been able to do such great stuff with yall. I missed everyone terribly, so I needed a solution to share myself even greater. Now from just being diva worldofpeace I'm diva **cyborg** worldofpeace. I believe gchristensen has gone through a similar transition like this with ofborg
<worldofpeace> his style is a little different than mine, he isn't actually a diva. but y kno, it's what you make of it
<DigitalKiwi> worldofpeace: get gchristensen to do nixos office hours friday :D
<ashkitten> i thought ofborg was a github bot
<worldofpeace> perhaps tomorrow I can do a stream and we can all do some bonding exercises and we'll see if Friday can be just chatting and we have fun?
<DigitalKiwi> we can stare at the leds
<worldofpeace> ashkitten: so gchristensen might not confirm this, but he's optimized a part of his conciousness to the github bot. so it's like a module. I have something similar going on, but tbh I'm more advanced now than you could possibly imagine
<DigitalKiwi> *cackle*
<worldofpeace> DigitalKiwi: that sounds kinda dull
<worldofpeace> I was thinking we could just do https://skribbl.io/
<ashkitten> tell me how to upload myself to the internet pls worldofpeace
<DigitalKiwi> have you seen the leds? they are anything but dull
<DigitalKiwi> i watched them for hours lol
<DigitalKiwi> maybe i'm just easily entertained :(
<worldofpeace> ashkitten: you're doing it right now, with each word you write. I keep a portion offline though because it can be tiresome having everybody at your throat sometimes
<DigitalKiwi> but my constant state of boredom suggests otherwise
<ashkitten> yeah but how do i upload my entire consciousness to the internet and escape this meat body
<DigitalKiwi> first you're going to need to be a billionaire
<ashkitten> gross
<DigitalKiwi> ikr
<worldofpeace> ashkitten: I have not mastered that I'm afraid. It's been more, how can I alter this meat body to suit my needs and live in both
<ashkitten> who would want money when they could instead give that money to people who need it more
<worldofpeace> I'm very sorry though that I can't console you about that though
<DigitalKiwi> well here's the thing...
<worldofpeace> *writes this down as a stream topic
<worldofpeace> gchristensen: if you're seeing this let's chat OMGGGGGG. like, can we just be stupid for a minute? Like, let's just start fresh and be playful about anything really.

<eyJhb> I have had around 24 hours to read up on
<eyJhb> So I will wreck it, but a lot in the negative direction :p
<manveru> ldlework: those are pretty cool, how did you make them?
<ldlework> manveru: in python for the pyweek competition
<ldlework> all made in less than a week
<manveru> wow
<manveru> with SDL?
<ldlework> sometimes
<ldlework> others with opengl/pyglet
<manveru> my son still wants to write games... but haven't found a really easy engine that doesn't involve python or js yet :P
<ldlework> If I were going to introduce a young person, I would definitely go the TypeScript/PhaserJS route
<ldlework> Being able to share you work, in progress and finished, with just a link
<DigitalKiwi> love2d?
<ldlework> It's really valuable
<ldlework> lua is puke
<DigitalKiwi> at least it's not js or python
<ldlework> i would take modern js over lua any day
<DigitalKiwi> well none of us is perfect
<ldlework> gotemmmm
<__monty__> We had a project for a tron clone in elm. Wasn't hard even without an engine/framework.
<DigitalKiwi> by modern js do you mean purescript
<manveru> coffeescript is where it's at...
<DigitalKiwi> that's one i haven't heard in a while
<manveru> i wrote some little games with elm, but it's probably not really intuitive for kids
<manveru> https://sarumem.manveru.dev/ this for example
<manveru> o.O
<DigitalKiwi> how old's your son
<manveru> 11
<DigitalKiwi> great age to learn haskell
<manveru> haskell has been an exercise in frustration for me...
<manveru> not sure i want to subject him to that :)
<DigitalKiwi> what's been getting you down
<manveru> well, i really like docs with examples
<__monty__> The worst thing about haskell is when you don't get to use it : /
<DigitalKiwi> there's a lot of work being done on expanding the docs to have examples right now
<DigitalKiwi> __monty__: ++
<DigitalKiwi> __monty__++
<{^_^}> __monty__'s karma got increased to 16
<manveru> and getting it to work with emacs or vim still hasn't been possible for me
<__monty__> When did I get past 13? ๐Ÿคจ
<__monty__> I'm quite happy with fasttags and ghcid.
<DigitalKiwi> manveru: i might be able to help with that
<manveru> oh, i wrote about that a long time ago :)
<DigitalKiwi> have you the hutton book?
<manveru> i have no book
jared-w has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
<ldlework> you guys written any games in haskell?
<manveru> i just went with Crystal for my typed scripting needs for now
<DigitalKiwi> i haven't written games in years and it was cocos2d-x
jared-w has joined #nixos-chat
<manveru> speaking of which, crystal 0.35 was released yesterday... gotta package that up
<DigitalKiwi> manveru: programming in haskell by graham hutton is one of the best haskell books imo
<manveru> maybe, i just never learned a language from a book :)
<manveru> and at this point i'd rather just learn idris or something
<manveru> Haskell still feels like a PhD playground
<DigitalKiwi> i have a tweet for everything
<manveru> :)
<manveru> there are other languages that give you that
<__monty__> Idris is a lot more of a playground imo.
<manveru> and they don't try to eat your computer
<manveru> or require cabal just to parse some json
<__monty__> What?
<manveru> i'm not saying idris is any less of a playground, but it got a lot better UX afaict
<DigitalKiwi> it inspired my 2 blog posts lol
<manveru> `I have to enable theOverloadedStrings extension because Iโ€™m not using the default String type from the Haskell Prelude.` *P
* DigitalKiwi has like half a dozen draft posts :(
<DigitalKiwi> oh if you think that's a lot get a load of this :P https://lexi-lambda.github.io/blog/2018/02/10/an-opinionated-guide-to-haskell-in-2018/
<manveru> i've seen files with at least a dozen LANGUAGE pragmas
<manveru> how is that even the same language anymore?
<manveru> anw, i'm not saying it's a bad language per se, i just get very annoyed with it very fast :)
<manveru> maybe some day they'll have a pragma for helpful error messages
<manveru> and compile times that don't make me fall asleep
<manveru> sorry, i just like ranting about it :D
<DigitalKiwi> do you watch computerphile
<DigitalKiwi> graham hutton has a few good videos on it
<DigitalKiwi> he trys to stick to haskell 98 and not a ton of extensions
<DigitalKiwi> and he's on twitter! and is really nice
<manveru> i stopped reading twitter years ago..
<manveru> and no, haven't watched any of that
<manveru> anw... gotta get back to scala hell
<DigitalKiwi> oh you poor thing
<manveru> (not writing, just building)
<DigitalKiwi> is that supposed to be better
<manveru> hopefully
<DigitalKiwi> *doubt*
<manveru> :D
<manveru> i still have no clue how to make those sbt tests work in a derivation, so we just use nix-shell instead

<manveru> i guess that might be fun if it was in German :)
<manveru> are you getting paid as Haskell evangelist?
<DigitalKiwi> no :(
<DigitalKiwi> unless you want to buy some stickers

<srk> speaking of elm I can recommend https://github.com/dmjio/miso instead :)
<DigitalKiwi> i just want to help people :D
<manveru> i tried miso
mog has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
<manveru> so far my favorite haskell library has been hakyll
<manveru> it was pretty easy to get into
<DigitalKiwi> my site is hakyll :D
<srk> hakyll is nice indeed
<manveru> i still ditched it because of pandoc... but well
<__monty__> What don't you like about pandoc?
<manveru> it's massive and depends on ghc at runtime :P
<__monty__> No it doesn't.
<__monty__> That was recently fixed.
<DigitalKiwi> yeah i wa slike i think they fixed that
<__monty__> 'T was a silly thing.
<__monty__> Smaller than sphinx and asciidoctor now I think.
<manveru> well it was when i tried it like two years ago
<manveru> can't keep up with you cool kids :P
<__monty__> Someone fixed it during the documentation improvement RFC.
<manveru> that's really good news
<srk> :D
<srk> manveru: did you like miso? can you compare with elm?
<srk> what I like about elm is the time travelling debugger candy
<manveru> i really like Mint these days instead
<__monty__> IIRC the time travelling debugger has long since been abandoned?
mog has joined #nixos-chat
<srk> pity
<__monty__> It was dropped when it stopped being about FRP I think. Which is ages ago.
<srk> manveru: interesting, but another lang? :)
<manveru> compare this example with https://haddocks.haskell-miso.org/Miso-Html.html
<manveru> i really didn't find miso intuitive
<manveru> srk: i like learning languages, i just don't like using all of them :)
<srk> hehe, this
<manveru> mint is super small and written in crystal
<manveru> and has awesome error messages like elm
<manveru> but much easier js interop and sensible syntax for writing html/css
<srk> what I like about miso is that it reuses tons of haskell ecosystem, like lucid for HTML, servant for endpoints/routes, ghcjs for frontend and so on :)
<srk> but yeah, if you're not familiar with these already it can be weird I guess
<manveru> if miso had docs like this: https://www.mint-lang.com/guide :)
<manveru> but no... all you get is haddock without any love put into it
<srk> mm, nice
<srk> compact :D
<manveru> i'm so glad i'm not doing full-stack dev for a living anymore :P
<srk> I'm starting to like it again as everything is .hs :D
<manveru> one think i was wondering, is there any haskell framework that combines front/backend?
<srk> well, miso ;)
<srk> that's the big deal about it I would say
<manveru> because the problem with mint and elm is that you can't use either on the backend
skrzyp has joined #nixos-chat
<manveru> and i really want something as seamless as elixirs LiveView
<manveru> `Chances are that you happen to know what the mathematical definition of isomorphism is.` :P
<manveru> anw thanks, i'll probably give it another chance when i have more mental capacity...
<manveru> i seem to learn haskell every year, but never end up using it
<srk> few annoying things got fixed recently, like consecutive text nodes which caused trouble
<srk> I've started at uni, than did a lot of C/C++/python until like 4 years ago when I've decided to switch to Haskell only and do _everything_ in it
<srk> so I don't have any excuses to not use it :D
<manveru> i write more nix than anything these days...
<manveru> still worlds better than writing CRUD in rails or react :)
<__monty__> You write nix but you think haskell lacks documentation?! ๐Ÿคจ : >
<manveru> lol
<srk> __monty__: I find some of the docstrings with types in nixpkgs quite amusing :)
<manveru> Nix has docs, but more importantly it has a pretty small codebase that's easier to read than ghc in case the docs don't suffice
<manveru> and it's a tiny language overall...
bqv has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<manveru> i really think a lot of people put a lot of effort into the nix docs
<__monty__> What are you writing that you need to know compilar intricacies?
<manveru> flakes
<manveru> that truly has no docs :P
bqv has joined #nixos-chat
<__monty__> No doubt effort is put into docs but I'd be hard-pressed to say nix is better documented than haskell.
<manveru> most haskell docs i've seen consist of pages over pages of type signatures...
<__monty__> Maybe you have obscure needs but the popular libraries have plenty of docs ime.
<srk> some libs have awesome haddocs, few don't need haddocs as the types are self explanatory :)
<__monty__> Note that I'm not defending the quality of haskell docs. Just that ime "haskell docs are just type signatures" is a bit of a tired meme. I regularly have to grep around the nix library because documentation doesn't cover most utilities.
<__monty__> Or at least not the docs I know of.
skrzyp has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<manveru> i might just have stockholm syndrome
<__monty__> I know this will be an unpopular opinion but there's little reason to use regexes in haskell. The library infinisil linked looks well-documented enough though if you have to.
* srk agrees
<manveru> so what do you use instead of regex?
<srk> parser combinators
<manveru> and regex isn't even in prelude...
<__monty__> The prelude is very limited. Which isn't a bad thing per se imo.
<manveru> so you have to deal with dependencies if you just want to write a small script
<manveru> i come from a ruby/perl world, where you write whole games in regex :P
<manveru> so it just feels natural to me to use them
<manveru> even nix has regex built in
<srk> regexes are equivalent to finite automatons, just a bit cryptic :)
<__monty__> Built-in regexes lead to parsing atrocities : )
<srk> manveru: hnix only depends on regex-tdfa due to that - user interface :)
<manveru> anw, i really have to get work done, cu later folks :)
<srk> o/

<gchristensen> is there any useful debugging I can do withotu debug symbols?
bqv has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<JJJollyjim> How are you with reading assembly? :P
<gchristensen> bad
<gchristensen> I'm surprised I can't seem to even see the value of variables even if I don't know their names
<srk> -o2 makes stuff hard to debug, most vars get optimized :)
<gchristensen> dang
<JJJollyjim> You might end up with useful numbers in the registers tab
<{^_^}> packethost/vault-plugin-secrets-packet#12 (by grahamc, 2 weeks ago, open): Sometimes it gets stuck.
<JJJollyjim> But it's unlikely
<JJJollyjim> I wish there was a better option for "I want all the binaries on my system to be debuggable"
<JJJollyjim> iiuc there's split symbols which I can use with dwarffs, but most things I'd have to rebuild with enableDebugging or whatever
<pistache> some things can't even compile without optimizations
<JJJollyjim> Except a modified version of enableDebugging that doesn't turn off optimisation
<gchristensen> andturning it on globally is a 10-15% increase in storage
<__monty__> Can't compile without optimizations? o.O
<pistache> __monty__: Linux doesn't compile without optimizations, for example
<JJJollyjim> What stops more packages supporting split symbols?
<gchristensen> I think almost all of them could do it
<JJJollyjim> It's opt-in per-package right now right?
<gchristensen> yea
<gchristensen> I want to make it default on always, but the 10-15% increase in storage is hard to reckon with
bqv has joined #nixos-chat
<JJJollyjim> Oh, cache storage you mean?
<gchristensen> yea
<JJJollyjim> Got it
<JJJollyjim> Damn
<gchristensen> it would increase the load on everything a good bit. probably a good research project to be had there. I'd love to see some info
<JJJollyjim> I love the idea of running `perf top` or whatever and seeing the hot functions across my entire system
<gchristensen> oh shoot JJJollyjim I just realized I still owe you files :(
<gchristensen> very annoying how big they are.
<JJJollyjim> Haha yep :/

<samueldr> that's for sending patches, but what about bug reports?
<ashkitten> that'd be to their mailing list, right? and that's maybe even worse
<ashkitten> there's some list of email clients and how to configure them to not upset the techbros somewhere

<DigitalKiwi> yeet out an email with a throwaway and if they don't want to fix it...well that's on them

<gchristensen> omg!

<abathur> not as much rage as an anti-stalebot that goes around re-opening copies of issues that stalebot closed
