    i am always torn between which language to code in
    although I love python.. it seems everyone wants to use javscript
    so i dont know.
    python code looks easier to code
    i read that python code takes 1/4th the code of other languages.
    Then i read that powershell might take half the code of python.. but powershell is built specifically for windows which might be why it takes less code.
    then i thought well if u learn javascript u can do front and backend.. with nose.js
    node.js
    and one lady is was formully in college said her teachers said u must learn all the langauges.. and the teach was warning to stay away from javascript.. since it is non traditional procedures in some areas.
    while others say javascript is eating all the other langugages
    with it's functional programming and prototype.
    So I supoose theres an opinion for every programmer and non programmer.
    and you really just gotta make something

    Well, to be frank, I know very little about web dev, and next to nothing about Javascript. But I have confidence in picking it up relatively fast if there is a need to use it.

    I do think it be better for a professional to be familiar with all existing paradigms of programming languages. But I don't think many, if any, would have been familiar with all languages. There is no reason for them to. For beginners, you can just start somewhere and then gradually expand your knowledge and experience. When you starts to get curious, you can watch some online courses or read some books/articles about different paradigms. And then you might get some better sense at this subject.
    I hate batch, and am hostile to anything Windows in general. So I can't comment anything about powerscript, which I only assume to be some cheap knock-off of (sh/bash) shell script.

    okay - sounds good
    a lot of the languages are similar
    i was reading what the differences were on javascript... i posted some of the articles i read about it on my site ... https://zack263.neocities.org/coding.html . basically Eric Elliot a javascript programmer talks about "functional programming" and javascript "prototype" instead of using classes. Another article claims javascript is eating all the other languages..but i'm not sure how much hype that is cause theres many languages.
    a lot of the traditional programers hate javascript and say it does things all wrong... but then Eric Elliot seems to think the traditional way of coding with classes is obsolete

    i think what Microsoft did in the 90s and what there doing now.. is to make everything work on windows.. so they can lure the people off linux.
    so the developers go work on there system
    i most did python.. id id the coarsera astroid free game programming class... it was very hard for me cause i didnt raelize it wasn't a beginner class.. i barely kept up
    mostly
    and i dable in javascript on my own
    i wouldn't recommend that particular python class
    basically there moving so fast that if u dont know how to code already.. you will have a hard time keeping up
    most of the basics looks the same in javascript and python to me
    lol
    python code looks a lot cleaner
    and easier to write
    but javascript has node.js
    but u would think u would use go language on the server side
    youwould think python could work on the server as well?
    cause it has a lot of administration procedures
    not sure if it does tho

    hmm, I never did code for server, so I wouldn't say I can offer my opinion on your question... I have friends claiming node-js is for everything. But then, so is Python. Frankly, if there is a project need me to use javascript, I will. But for now, Python is good enough for my need. Ultimately, language is just a tool to express whatever that is needed to be expressed. So at some point, we need to shift our attention from the language we use to what exactly do we want to do, I think...
    Good afternoon, oh, nope, it's mid-night here, lol

    I had an idea... i'm not sure why.. or if it is any good... is there a pluggin to make vim work as a tab in say a firefox browser? I'm not sure why this idea popped to my head... I suppose i saw a room called codemirror on gitterim.. that advertised a text editor in the browser... so i automatically thought why not vim in the browser, LOL
    i will duckduckgo search the topic
    omg - theres a vimb or vim file browser and a few other links i'll have to look at
    woah the design vimb webpage almost looks like it used word from microsoft

    OK, I think it is the time I should remind you, this is a Gitter group for thesaurus_query.vim related discussion.

    Please don't treat it like some random discussion group...

    Guys, I want to announce here that this plugin will no longer support thesaurus.com because it has taken legal action against its upstream Python project "thesaurus". Here is the email the author of that project sent to me few weeks ago.


    The fated day has arrived. Earlier today as I was enjoying a lecture on undecidability, I got an email: “Infringement of Dictionary.com’s Intellectual Property Rights”. Thought you should know.
    They want me to cease-and-desist by May 3rd. I don’t really know what happens to the forks at that point… I’m going to first try purging the master branch and replacing it with a README that explains the situation. This way, users can still click on the forks and find one to use. If the old code is still accessible somehow from my root url, I’ll probably have to delete the whole thing and then recreate the project at the same url, again with just a README.

    I recommend this guy’s fork: https://github.com/ryh95/thesaurus . He’s added asyncio support and logging. Probably doesn’t work on Python 2.

    Sigh. The world needs more Piratpartiets. One good thing might come of this— this lawyer’s going to get the best damn response imaginable. He’s going to think he accidentally emailed a crackhead poet.

    Thanks for your support,
