 #UI
 
I whined about current web UI tools being what state-of-the-art in designing desktop application was in the 70s.

But now I see there's this thing https://www.polymer-project.org/tools/designer/  (seems to work only on chromium). That looks like it might bring the current state all the way to mid 90s!

Not bad. Anyone know of other similar tools? If something like this was integrated into the Dart Editor, that would definitely be a killer application.

Many shell users, and certainly most of the people working in computer forensics or other fields of information security, have a habit of running /usr/bin/strings on binary files originating from the Internet. Their understanding is that the tool simply scans the file for runs of printable ...

I whined about Yesod not being buildable a few months ago.

Tried it again just now, and can happily report that with the new Getting Started Guide that recommends using Stackage (ghc-7.8 exclusive), I was able to eventually build it all just fine, even the so-called Fay+PostgreSQL. On Arch Linux, obviously.

So hooray for progress and the vanishment of silly problems!

Would have gladly paid for the Coursera Scala / Functional programming course to get an official statement, but there's absolutely no way I'm getting a web camera hooked up for that.

Sometimes I wish that there'd be a Web UI maker thingie that would even try to reach the usability levels of what Visual Basic or Delphi offered in the freaking 90s. How can anyone be proud of any of this current javascript crap?

Could Dart offer any hope here?

Follow-up on Yesod: I finally completed the Blog tutorial, i.e. this thing http://yannesposito.com/Scratch/en/blog/Yesod-tutorial-for-newbies/

Went pretty well, just two small surprises:

1. Once I indented my code wrong, and got this pretty thing in response: http://lpaste.net/113211


2. Didn't realize hamlet also works by indentation (although I was wondering why they never bothered to close their html tags). Found this out by looking at the output html code, which is not too bad.

Overall positive experience. Might want to do something serious with this thing! #yesod  
Its efficiency (see Snap Benchmark & Warp Benchmark1). Haskell is an order of magnitude faster than interpreted languages like Ruby and Python2. Haskell is a high level language that makes it harder to shoot yourself in the foot than C , C++ or Java , for example. One of the best properties of ...
