jdk11, 2020.3 community edition, scala plugin version 2020.3.17, on linux... not sure what else could be relevant
hmm, im using jdk8_241 2020.1 ultimate with scala plugin 2020.1.41 on OSX. I can try updating scala plugin, jdk... Wondering if there is something special when importing the project. Happy to edit and then compile separate, its just terribly annoying to not have proper referencing and such in IDE (makes much less sense to use over smtg like vim then)
Hi! I'd like to play around mapping Project Loom's fiber to Akka actors. Any clue on where to look at in the Akka source code? I suppose you maybe already started looking at it?
@nicobao we have had some internal discussions but while there can likely be benefits I don’t think we are clear on exactly how/where any specific changes to Akka would make sense yet.
That makes sense, Project Loom is not released yet. Btw, do we have some tools for monitoring the processes, like with Erlang's :observer or visualixir ? Is it something that the JVM makes possible to do at the moment? (Introspect live systems) If not, is project loom working towards that direction?
As far as I know Loom has the ambition to make things currently possible with regular threads on the JVM more or less possible with the fibers, but to dig into that I’d recommend digging into the Loom wiki/docs etc rather than asking here ;)
Thanks for your time Johan!
Something off with travis, or something I have missed? I have a PR that passed validation 12-15 minutes ago, but two recent external PRs has been waiting for progress update from travis for a long while.
@nicobao I think the best thing is we can do blocking thing inside an actor and yield the actor without blocking the carring thread.
@eyalfa: hmm it seems your account may have been flagged by travis. this might sound crazy, but could you try logging into https://travis-ci.com/ with your github account? if I understand correctly that might lift such a flag. if not we'll contact travis about it :/
@raboof:matrix.org , trying
Sent a mail to travis support asking them if they can un-block somehow
