About 4-5 hours ago I wanted to make simple websocket to get input from textarea and parse it on server and somehow got myself into developing in asyncio -> aiohttp -> graphql-core -> graphql-ws -> aioredis
and svelte-> typescript
I still didn’t make the stuff I wanted but I’m very close on backend at least.
I have some frontend part somewhere in my old prototypes so it will be faster if I figure out svelte.

Still don’t understand what the fuck just happened.
Maybe it’s because I wanted try those frameworks for a long time.

All ‘simple’ examples I found have around 20-30 files for backend and same amount for frontend so more then 50 files to get this shit working.
They’re called oh irony “simple chat”.
Now I see why no one fucking understands this shit.

I’m trying to cut mine to 5 files.

I thought developers are lazy bastards who don’t like write code.
But now after this they’re all looking like adhd coders.

Looks like Monday won’t be my best day.

    You could just take a raw request and write a simple middleware/socket server to implement a single websocket endpoint.

    @SortOfTested yeah but what struggle that would be ?

    About the same as implementing a massive application. Which seems to be where you're at. 😸

    @SortOfTested yeah but when I cut this to ~5 files and leave the imports I’m interested in I can easily plug some additional stuff from the ecosystem, don’t want to cut the road at this point.

    Yeah well I think I’ll just switch to javascript apollo server or implement subscriptions and graphql by myself on top of asyncio cause this python graphql-server version 3 california style is to fancy schmancy for me.
    To much shit, not much value.

    Well fuck that I just took aiohttp websockets.
    It’s enough enterprise bullshit for today.

    Why do you need graphql on top of websocket? Graphql uses a strict req/res pattern, and the main point of websocket is to break that.

    @Lor-inc graphql subscription spec use websockets under the hood for web

    @vane Oh right forgot about sub.
