@smarter
what do you mean by special case for case classes ?
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
case classes are Product with Serializable, right?
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
it's not complicated to implement, it's just irregular
yes
but that's unconditional
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
I'm arguing Serializable should then be unconditional for enums
Product is slightly weirder, since not all cases need be products
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
what if I extend something which is impossible to serialize ?
Martijn Hoekstra
@martijnhoekstra
if all members of some sealed trait Foo extend Bar, then Foo extends Bar naively sounds like a reasonable rule that would solve all potential issues
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
don't you have the same problem with case classes?
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
@martijnhoekstra It's not completely crazy but it has the potential to break stuff
yes, you're not supposed to do that with case classes
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
so that's where my point of case classes are a special case came from
I was suggesting to make them less of a special case, or at least to make ADTs a special case, not just case classes
I do understand your point about breaking stuff though. I'm just not sure you'd break more stuff than currently
(I also understand that this kind of decision cannot be taken on a hunch)
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
no, you'll have to go to https://contributors.scala-lang.org/ and convince people to care :)
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
Ah. I thought this was the right avenue for that
ok then, thanks!
@smarter I think I'll end up crediting you for half of my slides at scaladays
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
haha
what's the topic of your talk ?
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
Best Practices I wish someone'd told me about
stuff like... extends Product with Serializable for ADTs
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
nice
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
or return Some when you can in extractors
there's a bit of a pattern :)
I'm trying to see how much of my deck is made irrelevant by dotty
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
One idea to get rid of Serializable showing up in type inference was to just add it as a parent of case clases after typechecking
since it's basically an implementation detail that no one cares about
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
people that work with Spark apparently care about it quite a bit
but yes, that'd work as well
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
they care about things extending Serializable
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
doesn't help with Product though
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
yeah I don't know what to do with Product
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
it's not a big deal, it's just very confusing for newcomers
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
might become irrelevant with the generic derivation stuff in dotty, or might not
agreed
hence why I think it's worth discussing on http://contributors.scala-lang.org/
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
and since I do a lot of work with beginners, it's something I have to explain again and agani, which is why I care
oh I absolutely intend to
(the generic derivation stuff in dotty is amazing to use, but looks absolutely nightmarish to write)
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
the idea so far is to have something really low-level in the compiler and higher-level shapeless-like things on top
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
that's what I've read, yes
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
Miles will be talking about that at scala days
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo
oh cool
be honest - you guys designed match types specifically for him, right?
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
hah, kind of I guess
Nicolas Rinaudo
@nrinaudo

regarding enum, is there a syntax to define sum types within sum types? I was expecting:

  enum Foo {
    case Bar
    enum Baz {
      case Baz1
      case Baz2
    }
  }

But then this does not compile:

  val t: Foo = Foo.Baz.Baz1
Guillaume Martres
@smarter
no, that doesn't exist so far
