EDIT: devRant April Fools joke (2017)
@trogus and I have had an absolute blast working on devRant over the last year. However, we're strong believers in only working on a project if you're passionate about it, and over the last few months, we've sadly lost some of that passion so we've to announce, with heavy hearts, that we will both be moving on. We've decided to focus 100% of our energies on our next product, one which we are confident has billion dollar potential: Semicolon JS (http://semicolonjs.com).
So comes the obvious question. What will happen to devRant? We wanted to make the announcement today because we will be officially shutting down the product in 30 days. So that gives everyone a full month to take in the last memories, look at those rants they really loved, and hopefully take some time to chat with @trogus and I about Semicolon JS and what we have planned.
With so many thanks and looking towards the future,
- @dfox and @trogus164
Our live stream announcement and Q&A will be going live in less than 30 mins (9pm EDT)!
The event is here: https://youtu.be/Vk7TIKadYHk
We will be taking questions on the YouTube chat, feel free to ask whatever you want!
Thanks to all who tune in, hope you enjoy!
EDIT: big thanks to everyone who joined us and participated! The replay is available at the YouTube link above, and you can check out devDucks in the devRant swag store (https://swag.devrant.io) or the page we set up at http://devducks.com20
This post is a random, but who cares?
So about a year ago, I got a message from (at the time) a random guy with more ++ than me. This guy was @linuxxx. The message went something like this:
L: Do you want to join our little privacy chat?
L: Ok. send me your email.
.. And that was my gateway drug to the coolest group of people I have ever met.
Eventually riot.im got boring, then we moved over to signal and I met even more cool people.
So. After a year and a few weeks, I would like to say Thank You to this group, and to devRant for being an amazing place where like-minded people can meet eachother and learn from eachother.
Im going to inevitably forget some people, but the groups members are mentioned in the comments.47

Hello devRanters! A little while ago some ranters and I who are all passionate about FOSS/Linux decided to get together in a chatroom. Slowly more people are coming in but just wanted to post this in case any foss/linux liking people would like to join! I am not even sure if this is allowed on devRant (posting something like this) so if not, my apologies and I will remove the rant!
Keep in mind that the chat exists for people who are very keen on FOSS/Linux/security/privacy so no offense but it probably isn't the best place for people who don't like/care about that stuff :).53
Hey Guys :)
I'm new to devRant and I already read a lot of interesting stories and jokes and now I would like to post the first thing myself. :D
I would like to present you my new Android app "WhatsBirthday", which I made in order to solve a big problem of mine, friends (and probably the whole world xD). I have (as a Google User) all my contacts (with their birthdays) in the cloud and from there on my calendar. Sadly the Google calendar doesn't allow notifications for the contacts birthdays (I mean whyyy?!). And even if I take a look at my calendar, I always have to write these annoying birthday WhatsApp message to the people ... and these both were the problems I wanted to solve with my app.
So if you join the app, it will start a service (an Alarm / Alarmmanager for the professionals) which will take a look at the contacts every day at 6 am (can be set in the app). For each contact whose birthday is today, the application will send a push notification which if clicked will directly open the contacts WhatsApp chat and prepare a standard message with the name filled in, which could (in theory) directly send. For sure the app won't sends any messages by itself, but it gives you a template you can start working with.
And for sure, you can edit the template in the app & specify the messages for family and friends, which you can choose to use with the notification buttons.
So yeah, that's is and I hope I've aroused your interest ;) if you would like to download it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/...
I would be super happy if you could give me some feedback, it's one of my first apps and I would definitely like to improve it! Tanks in previous! :D
And I would like to say sorry for my bad English skills, I'm a German student :O if the translations in the app are not good, please tell me! ;)28
Just joined devRant! Can't wait to get more involved!
Bored in the lockdown, I built an app which lets you chat with people around you.
Its called Cyrcl!
Built in over ~40 days, I was the sole developer.
Here is the tech stack - React native for the android and ios apps, mongodb and redis for the database, nodejs for the server and aws ec2 for the hosting!
I'd love to get some feedback, or discuss some of the hacks!
Dutchies and some other peoples who want to join the Dutch devRant meeting!
Since nothing is being decided or whatsoever, this is the plan as for what I think would work best and based on feedback/comments/the chat.
We'll meet up at the The Hague train station around 2PM. From there on it really depends on what everyone wants to do but my idea would be (depending on the weather) to go to a park or get a coffee or something like that.
So, what do you guys/gals think?27
Well, devRant has turned me from a bigot arse into quite the humble and decent person, and on top of that, introduced me to some new series (well more so the users than the platform, but you know what I mean).
Binge watched Silicon Valley (season one, I just started) and learnt about dick to floor ratio.
Prior to that binge watched Mr Robot. Cannot remember who suggested that, so I cannot attribute the appropriate gratitude to the appropriate person here.
Add to that that I no longer claim one language to be holy amongst others. Yeah. I was that dick before, we all have a bad side. I'm just admitting it.
I sat down and started utilising other languages, and even found quite a few that did what I wanted more efficiently. Plus I have gotten to meet some sharp people and broaden my own mind.
Fuck I hate my job, but I see a fucking brilliant future for myself thanks to coding and the open mind that I have attained. I attribute this to devRant (perhaps it was lying dormant, but you guys awoke it.).
Enough chitty chat, I'm off to sleep and then code my balls off.2
Hello devRant, this is going to be my first time posting on the site.
I work for a gaming community on the side, and today one of the managers asked me to implement a blacklist system into the chat and reactivate the previously existing one temporarily. This shouldn't have had any issues and should've been implemented within minutes. Once it was done and tested, I pushed it to the main server. This is the moment I found out the previous developer apparently decided it would be the best idea to use the internal function that verifies that the sender isn't blacklisted or using any blacklisted words as a logger for the server/panel, even though there is another internal function that does all the logging plus it's more detailed than the verification one he used. But the panel he designed to access and log all of this, always expects the response to be true, so if it returns false it would break the addon used to send details to the panel which would break the server. The only way to get around it is by removing the entire panel, but then they lose access to the details not logged to the server.
May not have explained this the best, but the way it is designed is just completely screwed up and just really needs a full redo, but the managers don't want to redo do it since apparently, this is the best way it can be done.7
Jst a suggestion...
If u devRant devs can, how about a tab in the app to jst chat with the people online? I guess that cud b nice?12
DEVRANT INDIA MEETUP
@GDD Bangalore, Dec 1 and 2
It will be awesome to meet all the devs who are attending the GDD at Bangalore. So lets make a group chat and plan a way to spot each other 🤓
Group Link in comments 😊4
if you're gonna shitpost in devrant, make sure to tag as shitpost.
I like shitposts as long as they are acknowledged as such. The problem ones are unironical shitposts.
These lazy ass posts that seem to be written by someone bored in a commute are liquefying my shit.
I'm referring to 2 line posts like "it's hot in here" or "x broke today" with no development whatsoever.
Like people think this is Shitter or something and they can just spam shit about every mundane detail of their day to day.
That's chit chat, nothing wrong with that, but you don't chit chat in a forum, you dm your buddies.5
We need a pm system for devrant so we can chat and talk about ideas. Or it would be cool if you could mail to [username]@devrant.com10
How did you come to know about devRant?
I was shopping stickers online, and the owner of that site referred me to devRant (personaly, we were having a chat via that contact us chatbox).
Share your stories, because I don't see any ads of devRant, so everything must be organic here...19
Hey DevRant, I'd like you to meet "Marketing Brandon", his favorite daily activities include:
- asking me when that landing page is going to be ready
- asking how to support a customer on live chat even though he chose to assign the ticket to himself in the first place
- explaining how important social media is
- telling me he's working as fast as he can on some website copy I need and then sitting and composing tweets for 40 minutes
- asking if I can "just real quickly when I get the chance" implement a huge new feature for our users
- announcing to the entire office that he "has to leave early today" because the pet store closes at 5 and his ferret ran out of food yesterday
Does your office have a Marketing Brandon or similar?3
Am i the only one who really wants a chat and follow option on DevRant?
I find it very uncomfortable to maintain long comment threads of 20+ comments especially when you're discussing with a single other ranter on a certain issue :/12
What is the social networking programmers use to communicate.
So what program do you guys use to communicate? Something that I can drop here and not behing spammed. Time to start creating my own network arround you guys... You know, smart people.11
I've seen a few posts about group chats. Just so you guys know, there's already a Telegram group with about 10 devRanters. Fell free to join us. Actually, it's encouraged you do!
I wonder what would happen if someone trains a chat-bot based on Posts and Comments on Devrant? a Psychopathic Chatbot?5
Who here remembers dateprog.com? If you don't, it was a dating site for devs and those who like devs. I'm tempted to ressurect the damn thing, although not as a dating site but more of a social network (think GitHub + Tumblr). Anyone else think that'd be a good idea? I'm also thinking this'll be more than just my weekend sorted, haha. It'd have to have chat, code repos, GitHub login, etc... what do you guys think?
Also not planning to invade the territory of devRant I was just wondering if anyone was interested. Maybe even some kind of extension to devRant, as a social coding platform? I'm not sure aha. Welp, anyway if anybody's interested drop a comment! :)5
Devrant bug report:
Every 5th or so time I open the app it opens on this one rant from last week. Really strange.
(if it helps: this rant: https://devrant.com/rants/960649/...)3
I was going to rant today about lack of self-awareness and emotional intelligence in some developers, this rant was based on the interviews I have seen flop over the years.
But then, as I am typing it, people in my office start having this exact conversation. We get together and discuss it and in the end we come to the same conclusion as my rant.
Now it feels like a waste to rant about something on the internet when I got to have a real in-person discussion about it.
It’s like devRant in real life!
The outcome of the offline chat...
- Have a cultural policy that is strictly NO ASSHOLES
- Watch for people who are nasty on the internet, especially LinkedIn
- Be careful with people who have a lot of questions for you but answer your questions with “we are in stealth mode” or something similar
- There is no point in wasting your time on these folks in an interview, just politely conclude it as fast as you can and move on
During the time I've been part of the DevRant community, I've noticed that users (including myself) sometimes contribute posts that are not quite rants. These are sometimes posts about the DevRant itself, reaching out to the community for assistance on a project, etc.
This inspired me to create an unofficial Slack chat for the DevRant community. I call it MetaRant.
If you'd like to join then please send an email to:

Was thinking why don't we organize a giant devrant meet up online via video chat or somethong where everyone socializes and meet other users face to face3
I have a question about how to set up TensorFlow and use Node.JS for MongoDB CRUD. Help!
Cool, have that question on StackOverflow, because this isn't. If you have nothing to rant about you probably are still missing uncountable hours in training to get on a level where you can rant. Fuck off. Choke on a horse dildo. Get it through your thick idiot skull that devRant isn't your beginners bingo bongo chit chat.6
I'm new to devrant. I want to develop some short code snippets (any language any code) on my Android phone in some spare time. I want to have someone to talk about them, maybe even with chat or video over the internet.
Who wants to be my buddy and join in?3
question / idea.
I do not know if it already exists or if others have already mentioned this idea.
a devRant live communication channel / chat where you can quickly get help with a issues you are sitting with here and now (of course, it requires others to be on) and I'm thinking of something built into devRant.3
Oh boy, long time no see, devRant. Can't believe that my account is almost 4 years old now. Also can't believe how much this app has impacted my life. Found friends, lost friends, went on many adventures because of it, ...no time for life stories, maybe some other day.
Anyone here still remember me?
I've recently started programming again after a long time of indecisiveness, self-doubt and the like. (Rust, if anyone wants to know) and I'm really hoping that I'll stick to it this time, with the ultimate goal being at least some kind of income (try finding a job while having no real education *while* there's a certain virus going around).
Definitely feeling more motivated than at other attempts.
Anyways, I'll try to be more active again on this beautiful website. Talk to y'all soon ;)
Also, if anyone wants to have a chat, i'm fl#8910 on discord.5
