I hate using the mouse when typing at great speed
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 00:00 UTC
Why are you using Atom, then?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:01 UTC
because I can type with great speed
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 00:01 UTC
Hmm. Ok.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:02 UTC
Why wouldn't I be able to type with speed in Atom? Where is your bottleneck?
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 00:02 UTC
You should be able to type with great speed with Atom. But if you type at great speed, you could also mouse/edit with great speed if you used vim.

I even have keyboard shortcut to wrap hightlight text in a tag that I can quickly make anything I want (both open and close at the same time) and then continue to add attributes without any extra keystrokes (i.e. attributes don't go into the close tag).
keyboard MUCH > than any mouse edit if you type fast enough.
even keyboard shortcuts for git commands, and so many others.
eslint, etc etc

Aug 03 2016 00:05 UTC
Ok. Do you use Emmet?
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 00:07 UTC
Cool.
Lily Romano

vim can do a few things atom can not. atom packages can do a lot of things that vim can not. Both are good tools to use for different things, but for a majority of the coding, atom works better for me.

You will receive no criticism from me. I’d been using IntelliJ IDEA for a few years before my pair suggested we share vim.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:13 UTC
https://atom.io/packages/atom-pair that lets you see my open docs and we can both make changes to it after exchanging pair-codes (or whatever they call it)

i type with great speed with my keyboard… :P
SimplyPhy @SimplyPhy leaving xD
Lilyheart @Lilyheart drags Phy back.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 03 2016 00:14 UTC
also: i have to refactor my entire object
sigh
shouldn’t be too bad though (I HOPE)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:15 UTC
At some point you should learn some basic bash scripting and regex. Makes things like that a bit easier.

@Lilyheart +<lots of points> for that observation!
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:16 UTC
heh. @dcpking knows my choice of reading material xD
Mike
@dcpking
Aug 03 2016 00:17 UTC
Hahaha!! @Lilyheart reads or she doesn't - there's no three ways about it!
(just hope you don't start coding in c - then it'll really be write-only-code :)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:19 UTC
Montco is a Java school, so I don't think there is any fear of that any time soon.
Mike
@dcpking
Aug 03 2016 00:20 UTC
BTW, I'm not going to be able to make the library again tomorrow night. <so bummed>
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:20 UTC
Ouch. Hopefully works gets better soon!
I really need to do something to get more people at the meetups.
Someday I'll get that IR transmitter from you xD
Mike
@dcpking
Aug 03 2016 00:24 UTC
yeah!
Mike
@dcpking
Aug 03 2016 00:30 UTC
(you need any serial cabling?)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:31 UTC
I think we might actually have all our serial cabling needs covered.
Mike
@dcpking
Aug 03 2016 00:31 UTC
ok
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 03 2016 00:37 UTC
refactor complete (yay)
my super object is now a super array
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 00:38 UTC
That didn’t take long at all.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 03 2016 00:38 UTC
yeah i figured out a reasonably quick way to get through it
though i spent the whole afternoon basically creating that object
*array xD

As my mom used to say, “So what you lost everything because you forgot to save and the power went out? The rewrite will be better."
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 03 2016 00:39 UTC
now no need for jsonPATH (though it is cool, thanks @Lilyheart )
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 00:40 UTC
Save early save often
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 00:41 UTC
So many power outages… So many refactors…

welcoming to coding. refactor is life.
Lily Romano

Aug 03 2016 01:14 UTC
hmmm septa API has current lat/long on the buses. I can grab that into OpenHAB and then display them on the map on the wallmount tablet
Owen Winkler

Elixir has no loop commands. No for, no while. So I’ve been trying to do the algorithm challenges without them. I think I did all but one so far… My Javascript is too rusty.
This one, though, looks like it’s going to be too hard to do without a loop.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 01:25 UTC
ouch
Owen Winkler
@ringmaster
Aug 03 2016 01:25 UTC
.reduce() is your friend. :smile:
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 02:10 UTC
Because I feel like it. Now I'm going to see if I can pull the printer ink levels and put them in the home automation hub for display on the wall mount. cuz I can (or probably can, we shall see)

SNMP is…. interesting.

did you take the picture of the Dell keyboard for that?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 12:00 UTC
Ha no. I just set up that whole thing yesterday and grabbed super random photots from http://photosforclass.com/
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 03 2016 14:09 UTC
if i come tonight, i’ll be ~30 mins late
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Aug 03 2016 14:13 UTC
o ok, I just saw the picture and I was like that's a really dirty dell keyboard lol
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Aug 03 2016 19:13 UTC
So if I show up tonight between 5:30 and 6:00, is it likely that there will still be a reasonable amount of session remaining?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 19:15 UTC
No time is late. Except maybe 8 xD since that’s when we start getting kicked out. It’s just coding and chatting around a table. With Mike busy, I’m not sure how many people will even show tho.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Aug 03 2016 20:56 UTC
@SimplyPhy If you come, when you come in the building, go in both sets of doors. Once you are in the library proper, make a left and shortly you will see a staircase up.

Meetup is small today. Just me, @kevincauto and @ckear165 but we figured out why some code wasn’t working and that’s a good thing!
