Today I accessed DevRant and once again I've only seen posts that were unrelated to development. Politics, anti-activism, american stuff that only americans know, and so on. Since I think the community enjoys this content now, I think it's time for me to leave, after 6+ years here.
It's been a pleasure!15
How to perfectly manage a reactive server with 4 frameworks blindfolded
THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD BE SCARED OF AI
AI WILL KILL US AND RAPE OUR WIVES
YOU ARE USING CHATGPT WRONG!!
DON'T WAIT AI TO STEAL YOUR JOB, KILL YOURSELF NOW5
git isn't as solid as people believe.
Yes, it's used by million of companies. But it's not so solid35
The worst part about working for a big company is that whatever is the problem that you google the solution is always like "try changing this global parameter that only the CEO has the privileges to change" or "the only solution is to raze to the ground your 1 year old technology and use this state-of-the-art edge solution".
And it looks like I'm the only one that complains about this.
I mean, really do people have no constraints when they work?1
In Microsoft Teams, once you paste a text with a link you can't remove it anymore. I'm trying it in all the ways7
Cordova is the perfect example of the importance of managing a state.
You have 100 plugins in your config and one of them fails? Well, now you are in an inconsistent state. You can't delete the plugin because it doesn't exist but you can't add it because it already exists. If you search any question about cordova on StackOverflow literally ANY answer is like "delete the platform and install it again".
In average I find myself in an inconsistent state more than once a day. No error is handled so I find myself debugging their code and it's horrible, looks like written by someone that had no idea of what he was doing. I know it's legacy and capacitor should be preferred, but what the hell? Really?
I started studying JUnit and Mockito and I really don't understand. All the docs and the tutorials around are like "if call this method, then return this object. If the object returned is the one that I expected then test passed". But isn't it obvious that the returned object is the one that I expected? I fucking told it to return that object4
- Use docker so it works on any machine
- The server only starts on Linux
How the heck is that possible13
How did Postman go from being one of the most loved developer tools to one of the worst crap I've ever used?11
I often read rants, and I can see how everyone gives for granted that we have to overwork, work until night, work on weekend, work when the boss asks us, read the email, work until you fixed that bug, and so on. I mean, I don't see anyone ranting about this, I just see that this became the background of other rants, something that's so normal and we are so accustomed that we don't even consider it a problem anymore. I was wondering, is it just me that gives value to his own free time? That would rather read a book, watch tv or stay with friends? Or at least being able to tell a friend "we'll meet for dinner" without the fear of a problem blocking you at your job. Why should I be paid less than average in my country and work more, making the benefits still less concrete? I think I have a good brain and I chose this career because I love it, but if I could born again I'd be a doctor or a teacher3
They ask me, why do you hate Python? Well, maybe because I prefer fucking warnings and no fucking exit the program after 2 hours of computation if the parameter is unexpected. Fuck off7
I had mistakenly added a large file to a commit, and I'm now spending 3 hours of my life just to remove it and being able to push.
I've deleted the file from tracking, but it remained in history so when I try to push, github rejects to continue.
And, still worse, trying various solutions on StackOverflow I've done a mess on the history which now looks unrelated to the remote one, and I think it's a never-end catastrophe.
It's absurd how badly designed is git, and how hard it is to use besides the 3 commands that you learnt by heart16
I loved Python from when I wrote my first program up to I googled "how to import a module from a parent directory".
My love lasted 30 seconds16
I'm following this electron tutorial. I tried esporta and npm installa, but they are not working. Someone knows why?7
I can't connect the fucking safari debugger to the fucking iPad.
It opens the window and closes it after a few seconds, or sometimes (1 time out of 20) it just works, without no fucking reason.
And you should wonder "why are you asking for help here, that's not the fucking StackOverflow" the problem is that I don't know where else to ask. The next step will be resurrect Steve Jobs and just ask him why10
Programming for iOS is pure pain.
Programming with ionic on a Safari debugger is still worse. It's a crime against humankind.
I regret the IE 6 debugger. Yes, I know what I'm saying
I just noticed that MomentJS discourages the use of its own library in the docs homepage.
I think it must have been hard, so honor to them1
So I've to take a Google Developers Certificate because it's required by my company, and the deadline is in a few months. The Google website for taking the exam is broken. I mean, the website for a web development certificate is broken, am I supposed to fix it to pass the exam?
Oh, I was forgetting. There isn't any "contact us" button. Nice job for a 150$ worth certificate3
Is docker even suitable for anything that isn't deployment?
So much time, so much effort, so much trial and error, and I still feel like I don't know what Docker is for.
I had a development VirtualBox machine, which I used just to compile my code and test my application. So I said "why don't I just use Docker? It would be way simpler". Also because that fucking Virtualbox image was like 10GB, and it was slow af.
The VirtualBox machine wasn't created by me, but it was just given to me by a previous developer, so I just had to imagine what I needed and pick up the pieces. In few hours I was ready with my Dockerfile.
So I tried it, and....... obviously it didn't work. I entered inside my container and I tried to manually execute commands in order to see where it breaks, and I tried to fix each of them. They were just the usual Linux dependencies problems, incompatibility among libraries, and so on.
Putting everything in order, I started over again with a virgin Ubuntu image, and I tried to fix every single error that appeared, I typed something like 1 hundred commands just to have my development machine up and running.
Now I have a running container that works, I don't know how to reproduce it with a Dockerfile, and I don't know what I'm supposed to do with it, because I'm afraid that any wrong command could destroy the container and lose all the job I did. I can't even bind folders because start/exec doesn't support bindings, so I've to copy files.
Furthermore, the documentation about start/exec is very limited, and every question on StackOverflow just talks about deployment. So am I wrong? Did I use containers for something that wasn't their main purpose? What am I supposed to do now? I'm lost, I feel so much stupid.
Just tell me what to do or call a psychologist8
I'm still wondering what is wrong on my question, or more in general in all my StackOverflow questions, that 95% of the time just receive 14 views and 0 answers. I spend so much time answering and I just do it for the sake of helping other users, but when it's about receiving help back it's just tears12
Take the laziest person in the world and ask him/her to write an API documentation. He/she would do a better job than Apple2
I got notified that tomorrow I'm gonna start a porting project from a FileNet ecosystem.
Well, I don't know what is FileNet, but at least I've enough time to study its architecture. Let's start from the official IBM page:
The FileNet® P8 platform offers enterprise-level scalability and flexibility to handle the most demanding content challenges, the most complex business processes, and integration to all your existing systems. FileNet P8 is a reliable, scalable, and highly available enterprise platform that enables you to capture, store, manage, secure, and process information to increase operational efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.
Thank you IBM, now I surely know how to use FileNet. Well, I hope that wikipedia explains me what it is:
FileNet is a company acquired by IBM, developed software to help enterprises manage their content and business processes.
Oh my god. I tried searching half an hour so far and everything I found was just advertisements and not a clue about what it is.
Then they wonder why I hate IBM so much4
3 -+- "2" // 5
"2.1" -+- "4" // 6.1
"-1.1" -+- "" // -1.1
So, from now, you won't have to wonder anymore what type is that variable.
