02:05:02  <Raynos>evbogue: it depends
02:05:16  <Raynos>for p2p social
02:05:21  <Raynos>you need users to be able to store their own shit
02:07:23  <evbogue>Raynos: exactly. I've been having trouble sleeping trying to figure out how to liberate the entire world from living in siloed centralized social platforms. I figured you guys might have an idea of how to do that.
02:07:35  <Raynos>First go look for p2p social protocols
02:08:00  <evbogue>Like Activitystreams?
02:08:23  * gwenbellquit (Remote host closed the connection)
02:08:48  <Raynos>evbogue: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4418904
02:09:14  <evbogue>Raynos: I used tent, it doesn't work as advertised.
02:09:45  * shuaibjoined
02:09:50  <evbogue>They have a centralized closed-sourced version that works, the open sourced servers don't communicate with each other.
02:10:04  <Raynos>lol
02:10:26  <evbogue>So, problem not-solved.
02:10:31  <evbogue>But I still have hope!
02:11:10  <evbogue>Is this the kind of thing that has to wait to be solved until the new node stream APIs get finalized?
02:11:47  <evbogue>Tent is also Ruby/rails, so gets really slow once you load it up with users.
02:12:11  <evbogue>Hence why I rest my hopes on Node.
02:14:34  * shuaibquit (Client Quit)
02:14:55  <evbogue>Is Scuttlebutt + Append-only the kind of thing + a front-end UI that could make distributed social work? Or am I not right about that?
02:17:42  <Raynos>the important thing is that it has to be p2p
02:17:46  <Raynos>which means no centralized database
02:17:51  <Raynos>scuttlebutt can work but thats a tradeoff
02:18:31  <evbogue>what's the tradeoff?
02:20:50  <Raynos>its eventually consistent
02:20:54  <Raynos>so you have no consistency
02:21:10  <Raynos>also the current implementation is memory heavy
02:23:20  <Raynos>evbogue: but you have to be eventually consistent
02:23:31  <Raynos>because a distributed p2p system is under a lot of partition faults
02:23:38  <Raynos>and you have to have high availability
02:23:46  <Raynos>although I guess thats optional
02:25:55  <evbogue>so if I had 150 nodes up micropublishing 140 character messages to each other, using scuttlebutt and leveldb as the backend, it might never reach eventual consistency across all nodes?
02:26:20  <evbogue>(this is in theory, because I have not coded this yet, because I do not know how)
02:26:50  <Raynos>it will reach eventual consistency eventually
02:26:58  <Raynos>assuming a) no network splits
02:27:04  <Raynos>b) no network saturation
02:30:38  * gwenbelljoined
02:33:13  <evbogue>I guess I'm trying to figure out if these projects, like Append-only/Scuttlebutt are intented to lead towards my distributed peer 2 peer social utopian dream, or if they are intented for another purpose.
02:33:55  <evbogue>and if I should be learning the coding chops to build on them, or if I should be learning to build on something else.
02:34:11  <evbogue>like Go or something.
02:42:46  <Raynos>well you can learn from scuttlebutt
02:42:50  <Raynos>and reimplement something similar
02:42:57  <Raynos>scuttlebutt feels to wasteful on memory
02:43:11  <Raynos>so Im highly tempted to write something similar but more based on storage
02:44:02  * gwenbellquit (Remote host closed the connection)
02:44:46  <Raynos>evbogue: the next things you need for distributed & p2p is Webrtc
02:44:56  <Raynos>Look at https://github.com/Raynos/painter/tree/master/examples/chat
02:45:06  <Raynos>Provide feedback if it needs improvement
02:45:29  <evbogue>Raynos: I like WebRTC. I used the apprtc demo to do an interview the other day, and it worked well.
02:45:51  <evbogue>For a video call, that is.

02:51:11  <evbogue>Raynos: is WebRTC something that would be useful for a peer to peer distributed micropublishing app. Where every peer is a client/server?
02:51:29  <Raynos>yes
02:51:35  <Raynos>because its the only p2p protocol in browsers
02:51:40  <Raynos>assuming you want to do p2p in browsers
02:51:46  <evbogue>I like browsers.
02:51:49  <evbogue>Everyone has them.
02:56:15  <evbogue>Raynos: I've only seen video calls, chat apps, and your example of a paint app using webRTC. have you seen anything with multi-node publishing?
02:56:29  <Raynos>the paint app does multi-node publishing
02:56:32  <Raynos>open multiple clients
02:56:35  <Raynos>draw on multiple clients
02:56:51  <evbogue>Raynos: ah ha.
02:58:12  <Raynos>you should help build out the p2p foundations
02:58:18  <Raynos>and then build your social thing on top :D
03:00:13  <evbogue>Raynos: I guess I'm trying to figure out what needs to be built out, what's here already, and where to focus my attention.
03:00:38  <Raynos>your going to have to build your protocol and storage mechanism,
03:00:43  <Raynos>and then the app
03:00:47  <Raynos>you could use existing ones
03:00:54  <Raynos>but they probably aren't right for your use case
03:04:50  <evbogue>So you're saying what I'm looking for probably doesn't exist and I need to build from the ground up?
03:06:54  <Raynos>if you want to target node, browsers & webrtc yes
03:07:06  <Raynos>if you want to target desktop apps over UDP then there's probably a solution
03:09:20  <evbogue>Raynos: thanks for chatting. Signing off for the night. I appreciate your input!

04:02:17  <defunctzombie>substack: https://github.com/shtylman/node-required/tree/resolve
04:03:11  <defunctzombie>and the basic thing I hacked on while testing it: https://gist.github.com/shtylman/4760150
04:03:23  <defunctzombie>which provides the browser field support (but is kinda ghetto still)
04:04:02  * substackat SFO
04:04:18  <substack>defunctzombie: excellent
04:04:38  <substack>defunctzombie: I have a synchronous require implementation in http://github.com/substack/node-resolve
04:04:46  <substack>could be made to be async much more easily than any core apis
04:04:57  <defunctzombie>substack: yea, that is what I used in the gist
04:05:44  <defunctzombie>substack: basically, extending required at the resolve point will do everything we talked about wrt replacing code/requires
04:05:53  <defunctzombie>it was actually quite painless a change and is pretty cool
04:11:17  * fotoveritejoined
04:12:42  <substack>sounds pretty good
04:12:57  <substack>oh another thing I realized on the train
04:13:30  <substack>required should have an option to send the package.json contents in the results
04:13:47  <substack>I need that data for browserify plugins
04:14:07  <defunctzombie>in what sense?
04:14:25  <defunctzombie>I've only ever gotten that data when actually doing a require('package.json');
04:15:48  <substack>I'd like a way for modules to define source filters
04:16:19  <defunctzombie>source filters?
04:16:41  <defunctzombie>why would a module specify that?
04:17:02  <substack>so modules can do things like asset packing
04:17:21  <substack>without compiling to intermediary js files
04:17:28  <substack>I want to write an fs.readFileSync() plugin for instance
04:17:41  <substack>that will inline source files
04:18:18  <defunctzombie>my current experience with asset packing css is to just use npm-css
04:18:28  <defunctzombie>css is better loaded upfront anyway for rendering reasons
04:18:35  <defunctzombie>html templates is a different story
04:19:41  <defunctzombie>fs.readFileSync() is tricker since you have to find it in the code, and start replacing their code
04:20:02  <defunctzombie>versus a require, which could be used to load arbitrary text files
04:20:08  <substack>not necessarily
04:20:10  <defunctzombie>but I think that gets much more involved
04:20:25  <substack>using require to load text is a bad idea
04:20:29  <defunctzombie>I agree
04:20:43  <substack>require() is for loading javascript and json, a subset of javascript
04:21:16  <defunctzombie>I am not sold on the asset packing case :/
04:21:22  <defunctzombie>people will want to pack images
04:21:24  <defunctzombie>or other crap
04:21:33  <defunctzombie>I think those must be solved in different ways
04:21:45  <substack>possibly
04:22:17  <defunctzombie>you should add node 0.8 and 0.9 to travis for resolve module
04:22:26  <substack>I'd like to figure out how to build modules that you can just require() that handle a bunch of shadow dom / scoped css automatically
04:22:50  <defunctzombie>substack: I currently do it with a combination of bundling js for js
04:22:57  <defunctzombie>and npm-css for a single widgets.css file
04:23:00  <defunctzombie>which scopes the css
04:23:23  <defunctzombie>it also has be benefit that you can override css if you want or selectively use any widget css or not
04:23:27  <defunctzombie>and it can be deployed today
04:23:38  <defunctzombie>I am not sold on shadow dom yet
04:23:45  <dominictarr>Raynos: scuttlebutt is only memory heavy if you abuse it's assumption that your application is split into documents
04:24:15  <substack>defunctzombie: I think the <x-tag> stuff is silly but scoped css is really great
04:24:15  <dominictarr>like in regular document database
04:24:30  <substack>there are apis to control whether the css inherits from the document or not
04:24:42  <defunctzombie>substack: you can do scoped css now just by putting it in a class
04:24:58  <defunctzombie>the problem is that I want css to inherit from document
04:25:04  <defunctzombie>because I want to style things
04:25:12  <substack>not quite cleanly though
04:25:24  <substack>you can't turn off outside influence from the rest of the dom
04:25:26  <dominictarr>if you have an potentially 'infinite' document (like a news feed), you'd have to split that into many documents in mongo - same with scuttlebutt.
04:25:39  <dominictarr>level-scuttlebutt allows you to handle that.
04:25:44  <defunctzombie>substack: correct, and I think that is a feature more than a bug (at least currently)
04:25:59  * CoverSlidequit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds)
04:26:02  <defunctzombie>I want outside influence to leak in, but inside css to not leak out
04:26:30  <defunctzombie>having a widget that you can't outside style is kinda boring
04:26:38  <substack>another issue is that query selectors could be picking off your internal elements

17:30:30  <defunctzombie>whcih in typical cases works as expected
17:30:41  <isaacs>jesusabdullah: how is it "inflating his downloads"??
17:30:42  <defunctzombie>fails to install what the package.json says for the dependencies
17:30:58  <isaacs>jesusabdullah: does he think that people are actually installing hoarders?
17:31:13  <isaacs>defunctzombie: agreed. patch welcome, please.
17:31:19  <defunctzombie>has anyone actually tried to npm install hoarders?
17:31:24  <defunctzombie>that would be a nightmare I imagine haha
17:31:49  <defunctzombie>isaacs: I will try to dig into it, some of the code is a bit confusing to me atm :)

18:05:12  <chrisdickinson>isaacs: is anyone directly involved with node.js on TC39?
18:06:36  <isaacs>chrisdickinson: i don't think so.
18:06:41  <chrisdickinson>hmm
18:06:45  <isaacs>we all have jobs, and also node.
18:06:57  * chrisdickinsonunderstands
18:07:31  <isaacs>domenic seems to follow es-discuss pretty closely
18:07:41  <isaacs>there are discussing participants that use node, for sure
18:08:45  <chrisdickinson>i was just wondering, since (and i might be totally mistaken) there seems to be an attitude from TC39 that node.js is a "vocal minority"
18:09:07  <chrisdickinson>or at least, that it's okay to brush off comments from node.js devs because we're perceived as being the minority.
18:11:18  <chrisdickinson>(this is at odds with the fact that frontend devs will have to wait for universal browser support to really start using ES6; so for a long while the only folks that might be able to use the new features are extension developers and the node.js community.)

18:13:07  <mikolalysenko>In npm, is it possible to have cyclic devDependencies?
18:13:19  <mikolalysenko>For example, I have this library rle-core and another library rle-sample
18:13:35  <mikolalysenko>I want to use rle-sample to generate test data for rle-core, but rle-sample depends on rle-core
18:14:04  <mikolalysenko>I could fuse the libraries, but rle-sample is really separate from rle-core
18:16:32  <CoverSlide>run-length encoding?
18:23:59  <defunctzombie>mikolalysenko: sure, but I wouldn't do that
18:24:11  <defunctzombie>I would make rle-core not depend on anything it doesn't need to
18:24:21  <defunctzombie>or maybe depend on rle-sample via devDependencies
18:24:31  <defunctzombie>if it isn't needed at regular runtime, don't put it in dependencies

21:44:35  <defunctzombie>isaacs: npm is too complex :(
21:44:41  <isaacs>defunctzombie: agreed.
21:45:05  <defunctzombie>I am not sure I even understand what the install code is trying to do :|
21:45:47  <defunctzombie>I believe what I want to replace is the "readDependencies" call with readInstalled
21:46:11  <defunctzombie>but then read-installed returns some sort of 'data' which I don't really see documented what form that takes
21:46:27  <defunctzombie>or which of the installMany* calls I would use
21:48:46  <defunctzombie>isaacs: alternatively, can I just recurse on each dependency and run install on it?
21:49:00  <defunctzombie>maybe like what install does during the first time you run it with an empty tree
21:49:21  <isaacs>defunctzombie: definitely read the code and understand it before making changes.
21:49:25  <isaacs>it's not trivial.
21:49:48  <isaacs>it's doing some fancy pants recursive tree walking stuff, and making decisions based on the info it has at each level.
21:49:57  <defunctzombie>I feel like it evolved out of control and has taken on some sort of form
21:50:19  <isaacs>defunctzombie: it's not that complicated, really
21:50:27  <defunctzombie>the install algo itself shouldn't be complex, just a recursive walk
21:50:34  <isaacs>defunctzombie: "just" a recursive walk.
21:50:36  <isaacs>that's cute.
21:50:43  <isaacs>it's a recursive walk over a tree that it's building while it walks.
21:50:49  <isaacs>so... yeah. it's going to get a *bit* hairy
21:51:05  <defunctzombie>I don't see why, the tree builds but children can reference parents
21:51:06  <isaacs>also, we want to default to being relatively deduped (though not entirely, since we can't plan)
21:51:15  <defunctzombie>it isn't like it builds in some unpredictable way
21:51:15  <isaacs>children can reference parents or uncles
21:51:19  <isaacs>or siblings
21:51:34  <isaacs>but not cousin
21:51:35  <isaacs>s
