hi; first time in 3 months anybody's piped up in here

Hi
David Alejandro
@davidalejandroaguilar
Wow guys, just want to say congratulations, this framework looks very promising! Loved the Todo app YouTube video
Colin Gunn
@balmoral
@davidalejandroaguilar sadly Volt is no longer active. Instead you might want to take a look at http://ruby-hyperloop.org/ or https://github.com/clearwater-rb.
David Alejandro
@davidalejandroaguilar
Oh damn, why is that?
Colin Gunn
@balmoral
the author (@ryanstout) was no longer able to devote time to it. Ruby-Hyperloop provides a lot of what Volt does on top of React and ActiveRecord and has an active and commited development team.
David Alejandro
@davidalejandroaguilar
Thanks for the clarification @balmoral , I actually came across Volt by searching for frameworks that used Opal, which I found via Hyperloop. I'll definitely give Hyperloop a try. Though Volt looked super nice
Colin Gunn
@balmoral
@davidalejandroaguilar Volt really got me into and hooked on client side Ruby. Inspired by Volt I’ve put together my own full stack framework RoBE (Ruby on Both Ends). I’m a bit reluctant to publicise as it’s still early days (though used in a beta prodution app). If you’re interested please take a look at https://github.com/balmoral/robe.
David Alejandro
@davidalejandroaguilar
Will definitely take a look, thanks!
Colin Gunn
@balmoral
caveat: Hyperloop is the real deal - RoBE is a working prototype :smile: . There’s also lots of really good stuff by @jgaskins in the Clearwater repos. Happy hunting.

@davidalejandroaguilar
Does Hyperloop/Clearwater support real time features via websockets? I see RoBE does
Nevermind, I couldn't find it on the documentation, but they do have a chat app example
Colin Gunn
@balmoral
Hyperloop does a lot of clever stuff including pushing of database changes to multiple clients, and has operations to perform server side tasks - not sure what the underlying mechnics are. RoBE uses web sockets for server side tasks and database ops .
Colin Gunn
@balmoral
btw, the Hyperloop team's on Gitter at https://gitter.im/ruby-hyperloop/chat.

@davidalejandroaguilar WebSockets are pretty fantastic with PowerStrip https://github.com/clearwater-rb/power_strip It's basically the Pusher API running inside your web server, but without the 10KB size limit per message.
Jamie Gaskins
@jgaskins
I've also had success using per-connection channels so that, instead of sending HTTP requests, you can send messages to the server via the WebSocket, which then get passed off to Sidekiq workers to be processed, and the Sidekiq worker can make the PowerStrip broadcast calls to send any messages in response to the client.
To clarify, it doesn't truly "broadcast" since there's only one client on that channel in that case. :-)
David Alejandro
@davidalejandroaguilar
Wow, will check it out @jgaskins , thanks!
Jamie Gaskins
@jgaskins
@davidalejandroaguilar I haven't documented the per-connection channel strategy yet, but I'd like to because it's really not an obvious way to do things, but if you have any questions about it I'd be happy to answer them over in the Clearwater channel https://gitter.im/clearwater-rb/clearwater

@/all Hey everyone. Two things. First, I still hope to come back to volt someday, but most likely it won't be anytime soon (sorry) For those of you who weren't in the loop, I had to abandon volt for something that could pay the bills. That project (witharsenal.com) is doing really well, which brings me to... We're looking for [remote] senior ruby developers. If anyone is interested in chatting, PM me on here. Thanks!
Alexandre Daoud
@alexandred
@parth22594 in what way is this question appropriate for this channel?
David E. Smyth
@David-Smyth
@ryanstout I'm interested in Arsenal
Ryan Stout
@ryanstout
@/all hey everyone. So it looks like I probably won't get much time to work on volt again anytime soon. (Sorry.. Maybe in a year or something) If anyone is looking for a senior ruby dev job, hit me up, my company is hiring: witharsenal.com Thanks!
Christian Käser
@dfyx
@ryanstout Hey, people are still talking about volt: https://blog.phusion.nl/2018/08/30/rails-still/ (scroll down)

Ryan Stout
@ryanstout
cool. I miss the days of working on volt :)
had to pay the bills unfortunately
LemonAndroid
@LemonAndroid
those bills!
i always wanted to try volt
Ryan Stout
@ryanstout
I think we had some good ideas. Getting a framework popular is a ton of work though. And I think takes a bit of luck
@LemonAndroid what are you working with currently?
LemonAndroid
@LemonAndroid
@ryanstout I like ember a lot for frontend, but I'd prefer pure ruby. I'm afraid of the opal bridge when thinking about adopting volt
I also did my fair share of php and a bit of python in the past few months
ruby is really superior
something like glitch.com for voltrb would really spike adoption i think
the convenience factor goes a long way
Ryan Stout
@ryanstout
interesting
yea
I've been out of web dev for a few years now. I keep hoping it will be better when I come back :-)
LemonAndroid
@LemonAndroid
:D
may I ask what you are doing if not web dev?
Ryan Stout
@ryanstout
will be interesting to see if any LLVM languages get popular thanks to webassembly
founder of witharsenal.com
probably going to be a while before I can work on any frameworks again
LemonAndroid
@LemonAndroid
ruby or python for the ai stuff?
Ryan Stout
@ryanstout
python for the machine learning (pretty much all ML is python now days), ruby for a lot of the rest of the device code
and the iOS app is rubymotion, the android app is react native
LemonAndroid
@LemonAndroid
i wonder why python is preferred for science / machine learning. maybe because it's more concise because of the identation syntax.
is rubymotion not good for android? i'm bugging them every few weeks to release rubymotion for windows/linux
