@lunchgirl I got tired of paying $10/mo to host nyquist.space. Especially since I hadn't used it in like, five months or more. At least if I become inactive here again I won't be paying for it
@anw Hm, does mastodon not use a standard regex?
I tested it on regex101.com instead of the ruby one at rubular.com
@kurisu I mean yea I just don’t want another service to maintain basically. I’m probably gonna get a dedi at some point soon though
@kurisu yeh I thought about hosting an instance but the local timeline would be a wasteland and then I’d actually have to maintain it. Maybe in the future
@kurisu v surprising. specs?
@kurisu what’re you hosting it on
@rx14 Is there a reason you went with Pleroma over Mastodon?
@Wraptile Yep. PUBG/LoL/Overwatch were huge in most pc bangs. I only went to one pc bang that actually had TF2 available.
Busan is a big city but I think it's reasonable enough. Korea in general is a lot cheaper when it comes to food/eating out. Fresh fruits were more expensive though, compared to the US.
@circsarlatan Yeah, Rails has a nasty problem of "Magic" things like ActiveRecord, etc, doing a lot of stuff under the hood.
What helped is watching a RailsConf talk about how things like ActiveRecord, etc, really work. After that it's not so bad, although I think Rails is overkill for a lot of applications. Sinatra + a basic ORM is pretty sufficient, but I digress.
I've looked at Phoenix/Elm/Elixir, and they look promising. Coming from Clojure I really like languages that make FP first class.
@circsarlatan To clarify, I started out with Ruby (and Rails). So I'm gonna be biased but I think Ruby's style of syntax is really nice. I dislike Python's style.
Crystal has *almost* the same syntax but it's 1) safe, 2) compiled and 3) fast. Handling threads is nice as well, it uses CSP similar to Go. Crystal just gets a lot less press than #Rust.
Crystal's API documentation is phenomenal: https://crystal-lang.org/api/0.24.2/HTTP/WebSocket.html
So in general it's really pleasant to work with, fast, and not so verbose.
@circsarlatan I like Crystal for personal projects only atm. It hasn’t reached version 1 yet, and frameworks like Amber aren’t mature and tested yet.
Amaranth is my main project atm, which uses Crystal for the backend (Lexing / Parsing, Plugin Handling, a nice command DSL): https://github.com/azah/amaranth
I like it because it’s a statically compiled, strongly typed language so it makes me think hard about my data and structuring. And it has elegant syntax like Ruby.
