@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <lunik1> Is there a julia library for creating world maps like this https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1f/Democracy_Index_2020.svg ? Assigning each nation a value and mapping that to a colour.

@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <clausen> Is there a way to save a session (just like in R)? I'd especially like all compiled code to be cached, but I don't want to trigger any extra compilation.
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <clausen> Is there a reason --output-ji is undocumented? (Is it going to change?)
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <clausen> Maybe gdb checkpoints can do this?
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <clausen> gdb checkpoints / core dumps don't work, because they don't save kernel resources like file descriptors
[irc] <clausen> also, julia core files are enormous... Hello World is about 700M!

@GitterIRCbot
[slack] <simeondavidschaub99> Try --help-hidden
[irc] <clausen> Thanks simeondavidschaub99!
[irc] <clausen> Why is this hidden?
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[slack] <simeondavidschaub99> It's not something regular users should really care about, so to avoid spamming your prompt these more advanced options are not always printed.
[slack] <simeondavidschaub99> Didn't --help point you to --help-hidden? Perhaps that could be made more prominent.
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <clausen> simeondavidschaub99: It is displayed fairly prominently, but it's easy to miss since there is so much text.
[irc] <clausen> So I didn't notice it.
[irc] <clausen> " -h, --help Print this message (--help-hidden for more)"
[irc] <clausen> I think "git --help" is a good guide to how this ought to work...
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[slack] <simeondavidschaub99> Feel free to open an issue about this or even make a PR if you have any ideas on how to improve this.
[slack] <simeondavidschaub99> The problem with these kinds of things is that the people writing the documentation are usually the ones who already understand it, so any input is always welcome!

@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <dostoyevsky> I used Pluto to execute some code that uses @animate -- now I see the result of the cell as `Animation("dir", ["frame1", ...])' -- I would have expected to see the animation as an animation, not just merely as a data structure...

@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <Andriamanitra> TIL filter keeps elements for which the function returns true and not the other way around
[irc] <Andriamanitra> that was fun 15 minutes of wondering what the fuck is going on
[irc] <Andriamanitra> i wish julia had select / reject like ruby, no chance to get confused by semantics

@meff:sunadokei.party
[m]
Hm most FPs I've used have always implemented filter that way so I never felt it to be unergonomic

@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <perdent> Anyone here used this/familiar with this toolkit? https://github.com/Riscure/Jlsca

@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <devJet> Hi all, I'm new to Julia and working with Symbolics.jl. I have a string equation such as "x = 2y + z" and trying to convert this into a Symbolics.jl representation
[irc] <devJet> is there a built-in way to parse from a string?

@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <vxvshnuj> howdy. So #julia just got 75 peers. Is there another communication channel with more people?
[irc] <vxvshnuj> or it's just because the language isn't much adopted
[irc] <vxvshnuj> ?
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[slack] <pfitzseb> most people are on slack or zulip
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <vxvshnuj> hmm, ok, gonna check which one has best irc-client bridge :)
[irc] <vxvshnuj> I have slack already setup, never tried zulip
[irc] <vxvshnuj> thx
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[zulip] <Brenhin Keller> AFAICT the symbolic community is most active on Zulip, FWIW
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <deimos_> doesn't zulip/slack/irc/matrix/whatever all bridge together?
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <Andriamanitra> judging by how inactive the irc channel is, probably not
[irc] <Andriamanitra> i'm guessing there's more channels on slack/whatever and only part of it is bridged here
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[slack] <cbkeller> Yep, only one channel is bridged here
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[slack] <cbkeller> For context, the Slack burns through its 10,000 message cap about every two weeks, compared to the like fifteen posts a day in this bridged channel.
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <deimos_> there are free/self-hosted solutions
[irc] <deimos_> hey, https://opencollective.com/julialang it exists
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[zulip] <Brenhin Keller> Oh for sure -- the Zulip is also in that category (open source, allows self-hosting, free hosted instances for OSS projects), and has nice support for LaTeX, which is important for the mathematically inclined. But a lot of people in the Julia community either like Slack for some reason, or (like me) are on it a lot because our workplaces use Slack, so that's the single largest forum. Zulip is probably the second larges.
[zulip] <Brenhin Keller> Oh, and the discourse is large too -- but that's not chat
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[zulip] <Andrés Riedemann> Also, not everybody is subscribed to general-bridged
meff
@meff:sunadokei.party
[m]
hm does the Matrix channel not bridge into Slack? I didn't know this at all
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <lunik1> is there a matrix bridge?
meff
@meff:sunadokei.party
[m]
yeah, I'm on Matrix
like, I'm viewing this natively from Matrix at #julialang_Julia:gitter.im
BridgingBot
@GitterIRCbot
[irc] <deimos_> it appears freenode is imploding, again
[slack] <oliver> yeah there is a gitter as well I think
