snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-27 13:27:15 mircea_popescu: add to that the FUCKING INSANE tlp being annoying as fuck, i'm having a blogging crisis over here
asciilifeform: trinque: basic desired scheme is http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-27#1931395
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-27 11:35:18 asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-27#1931353 << phf yer missing the point , i need so that http://btcbase.org/log/2014-07-16#758070 AND http://btcbase.org/log/1945-07-16#758070 go to same thing !
asciilifeform: i.e. errything oughta work just as presently, BUT with the index being the actual determinator of where link goes.
asciilifeform: ( incl. the page scroll to anchor and highlight must remain working just as now )
trinque: what on the backend determines URL routing?
asciilifeform: ( the reason for this itch is that i have found it to be impossible to guarantee that all dates agree )
asciilifeform: trinque: i dun think i understand the q
asciilifeform: trinque: see linked mircea_popescu thread. it appears to be the case that anchors in fact are not transmitted to the remote end, at all.
trinque: from the other end, why not / instead of #
asciilifeform: cuz how to make it scroll to pos ?
trinque: yep, they are not. they're an in-page link from ye olde times
trinque: willing to use a minimal amount of JS?
asciilifeform: trinque: no js ugh
asciilifeform: right nao my proggy is 100% js-free
asciilifeform: currently closest thing i had to a workable idea is /chan/idx#x ( where #x is simply a fixed string ) and generated page contains #x in the right pos, and coloured line there.
trinque: heh, I can go hankier. you could instead have a server-side rewrite rule that 301 redirects from / to #
trinque: then referrer contains the ID
asciilifeform: trinque: dun seem like any standard-compliant www end ( front or back ) ever sees # or any text after.
trinque: this is the batshit and denuding coad diana_coman wanted !
asciilifeform: ( my notion above, /chan/optionaldate/index#x , is cribbed from mircea_popescu's selection colourer )
trinque: asciilifeform: considered just giving every line a UUID instead of int identifier?
asciilifeform: trinque: all historical logs must remain valid
asciilifeform: but i'm curious, how does 'uuid' differ from integer ?
asciilifeform: i mean, in practical terms
trinque: lemme go back and try and figure out what exactly is the problem you're trying to solve, unless you'd endulge me with a restatement, because I don't think I'm following.
asciilifeform: trinque: visit the linked thread, it is short.
trinque: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-27#1931397 << yes, I don't understand what it means to both be decorative and work correctly
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-27 11:35:50 asciilifeform: dates gotta be decorative and work correctly while being so, or oughta go entirely.
asciilifeform: it means that the lookup must be by idx, not by date
asciilifeform: but at the same time all links are displayed on www from within a calendarized page just as now , with date in the base url ( the date my logger believes they occurred on )
trinque: I wouldn't even consider it a sin if you just went back and fixed all the links to point to present logger, and in so doing, fixed the format.
trinque: isn't the former already contemplated?
asciilifeform: trinque: this would simply throw the problem into the lap of people trying to make own loggers that sync with mine.
asciilifeform: clocks are basically rubbish on pc.
trinque: how? you'd have /log/$channel/$date/$canonicalId and use the latter for line lookup, and the penultimate for paging
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-10#1927171 << see also
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-10 10:25:59 asciilifeform: when wrote 1st draft of logotron, i made mistake of sorting ~by time~, ended up with soup displayed
trinque: yep, so I retract the UUID proposal.
asciilifeform: trinque: above seems to be exactly what i suggested. but as i understand will also need #x or such, to scroll to line
asciilifeform: it's headache, but as i understand the shitsoup standard offers no clean knob for it
trinque: yeah, can 301 redirec them to a URL which includes the anchor for the line they requested
trinque: *redirect
asciilifeform: hmm
asciilifeform: so #'s can be sent ~to~ client ? that's possibly working pill
asciilifeform: tho still ugh cuz what if i'm pasting from browser into irc
trinque: I believe so, yes
asciilifeform: nao cannot paste from url bar , only log line mouse ? ugh
asciilifeform: seems like there is no clean pill, only decision of where we can move the dirt.
trinque: sounds about right for wwwtronix
trinque: actually my first proposal gets you clean URLs
asciilifeform: i'ma wait for mircea_popescu to wake up and see what he thinks before changing proggy. and whoknows, maybe we both missed sumthing.
asciilifeform: hm?
trinque: so to start from scratch:
trinque: turns out I'm quite tired. I think the above is probably the cleanest solution. will think moar and rejoin thread
asciilifeform: ty trinque
asciilifeform: i've been puzzling over this item but made 0 useful fwd motion yet.
asciilifeform: ( ftr '301' dun strictly require apache kludging, it could be done in my proggy per se )
asciilifeform wrote proggy to be reasonably agnostic of frontend
asciilifeform: so seems like best formulation so far is http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-08-28#1931788 plus the proggy feeds client always 301 to the above with #x appended .
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-28 21:30:38 trinque: how? you'd have /log/$channel/$date/$canonicalId and use the latter for line lookup, and the penultimate for paging
asciilifeform: $date would be unused by the parser, while still being correct in all newly-emitted links
asciilifeform: ( should we even have it in the links..? not as if quoting bot doesn't spew the date when quoting )
trinque: if it hasn't been historically meaningful, honesty says kill it
asciilifeform: my present take on all of this : it ~is~ possible for loggers to agree on ~order~ of lines ( albeit in corner cases, difficult ). however it is not possible for them to properly agree re absolute time. ( and in fact the timestamps in the imported logs are all over the place )
asciilifeform: i suggested in orig thrd, to throw out the date from url. lessee what mircea_popescu thinks.
trinque: kk
asciilifeform: ( note, they can still be displayed in calendarized pages , as now )
asciilifeform: trinque: re clocks, at one time mircea_popescu suggested to use trb block as clock. but imho is of very limited use as clock, cuz not guaranteed to advance in any given interval.
asciilifeform: ( wedge -- clock stops easily for days )
asciilifeform: i.e. how deedbot.
asciilifeform: but deedbot dun need to go in realtime, unlike logotron.
asciilifeform: ( for folx not following in depth -- fleanode does not emit timestamps; they come from local machine where a given logotron ran when it logged a line )
asciilifeform: btw note, my logotron already knows how to generate colouration on serv end

mircea_popescu: so in practical, male, power-constructed terms, however you wish to call this : if you fail to make good because you spent all your resources hailing twennysomethings, that's a failure of education (ie, blame the parents, shoulda told you better), but if you fail to make it because couldn't find support in the old guard, well, that's the plain failure to thrive (blame self).

asciilifeform: no one yet asked how asciilifeform ended up on 2.7. answr: it's where gentoo stopped when died and i put it in waxworks.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: if you decide to fiddle with the proggy so it goes on 2.6, prolly can be done ; but keep in mind that i will not be able to run yours anywhere, there's no 2.6 on any known gentoo of past decade or so.

asciilifeform: diana_coman: rly it oughta be in tmsr-adalisp (tm)(r) but this apparently dun exist yet.
asciilifeform: ( recall thread, where 'simple script lang where can sockets etc' )
asciilifeform: when i 1st sat down to write it, thought 'ada', then realized that simply to make the necessary glue would take a year, and that's if did nuffin else.
asciilifeform: then thought 'cl', then noticed that will need 9000 unexplored (by asciilifeform) lib liquishits for pg, http, etc.; then 'fuck it, i'ma cut up phuctor and sew from its still-twitching living pieces'
asciilifeform: result was the item nao running.
diana_coman: asciilifeform: and I think it was the best option available, yes.
diana_coman: for clarity re python 2.6 it's quite clear that it's not worth it - all sorts of breakings in flask & co really.
asciilifeform: i considered even exotics but realized it aint happening in reasonable time frame (and fuck knows what would look like) if did so. so went like so.
diana_coman: to cite from flask's description, for full allergy-triggers: A micro-framework for Python based on Werkzeug, Jinja 2 and good intentions
asciilifeform: diana_coman: for 2.6 need whole set of vintage liquishits that went with that specific py
diana_coman: I think I got a boatload of the good intentions part.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: 'flask' , 'psycopg', etc. are erry bit as rubbish as the docs suggest. with the twist that the assemblage actually worx ( phuctor's been running, incl. under various abuses , for yrs , on same ) .
asciilifeform: if i had to pick it up all now for 1st time, dunno if could bring myself to -- it has absolutely atrocious feel to it (esp. given the 'modern' docs)
asciilifeform: and i'll be the 1st to burn it all when there's a realistic alternative.
asciilifeform: earlier thrd where mp popped the cover on these and fulled 3 buckets with barf
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-14 02:58:26 mp_en_viaje: Flask is a lightweight WSGI web application framework. It is designed to make getting started quick and easy, with the ability to scale up to complex applications. It began as a simple wrapper around Werkzeug and Jinja and has become one of the most popular Python web application frameworks." << really makes me want to be sober, reading that thing.
asciilifeform: iirc lobbes actually wrote a vintage-php frontend . but bot is still py and uses same spittoon
diana_coman: myeah, I quietly barfed in my notes re flask before but this time it just spilled in here.
asciilifeform: saddest thing is, i'm not even certain it's more retarded than e.g. hunchentoot
asciilifeform: ( considering, it is in py , interpreted lang, and my pages are generated approx on par with speed of phf's , at the immediate shitting arse end (discounting pipe delay ) )
asciilifeform: worse, not even certain that it is possible to write a clean/light www shitter , considering what http , tcp , are like to begin with
asciilifeform: ( mp is fond of old php , but it suffers from 100% of same headaches , and in fact even slower , esp. if the job is even slightly moar complicated than wp ; he arrived at it same way i did at 'flask' -- picked up decade ago and 'it worx, i'ma pour cement on this' )
asciilifeform: imho the Right Thing for this problem domain would be a tmsr-baked script lang built from ground, like-this . but so far no one has the free hands.
asciilifeform: ( would also be Right Thing for e.g. bootstrapping gnat, and related battlefield )
asciilifeform: i demonstrated, in 'm', how to write nontrivial proggies w/out libc or any c glue whatsoever, or any compiler dependency whatsoever.
asciilifeform: nao all needs , is someone with hands.
asciilifeform: the sword -- is in the stone!111 nao who wants to pull.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: in re pythonisms -- for that matter i'm to ~this day~ ! using my orig v.py (w / phf's 'vdiff' , and your fixup patch.) also because never found in what to rewrite it.
asciilifeform: there's imho a ~huge~ chunk of problem domain that is begging for a simple, well-specified, ~frozen~ scripting lang.
asciilifeform: with implementation weighing a few dozen kB.
asciilifeform: (imho entirely doable, i emulated an entire fucking comp, with mmu, uart, clock, in <13kB proggy)
diana_coman: well, I have at least fully explored the 1-strand spittoon: psycopg2 on python 2.7 wants postgresql 9 or greater and so it goes.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: my test bed fwiw used pg 9.4.5 .
asciilifeform: ( on dulap, where deployed -- 10.3 )
asciilifeform: diana_coman: you'll want a front end thing for it to live under (prolly apache) also .
diana_coman: asciilifeform: apache so far is working, what can I say
diana_coman: maybe that's also the "wrong" version...
diana_coman: asciilifeform: what's the easiest coupling if they run on same machine anywya?
asciilifeform: diana_coman: if it runs, will run, all that's asked of it is to forward a tcp pipe to port x (whichever yer py is on)
diana_coman: ah, shall see; *if* the bot runs at all, that is.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i at one pt blamed that coupling for the slow, and measured (plain rev.proxy vs 'wsgi' (equiv of php's fastcgi) , found 0 diff
asciilifeform: diana_coman: bot is own program and doesn't have any deps (aside from py per se and psycopg)
diana_coman: aha, initially I though it required wsgi
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i never posted that variant, imho it is useless moving part
diana_coman: well, and postgres
asciilifeform: the log viewer represented in the vtree simply serves itself on given local port when it runs. which you can then fwd to wherever.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: naturally and postgres. i was speaking of the py glues.
asciilifeform: to be utterly pedantic : the log sys consists of 2 separate py proggies that share a db (normally expected on same box, but can in principle be elsewhere). bot.py and reader.py
asciilifeform: the former sits in irc and records lines, answers cmds, etc. ; the latter serves up the httpized logism.
asciilifeform: it is in fact possib. to use 1 w/out the other ( e.g. asciilifeform's adhoc mirrors have only reader.py ; one could sit a bot using solely bot.py and then write yer own viewer at leisure ; and so on )
asciilifeform: the only knob in bot that actually gives a shit re the reader is the search knob ( see where it expects to find the # of results ) .
asciilifeform: if running bot w/out a public www viewer, it prolly has no business answering commands in chan anyway
asciilifeform bbl:meat
diana_coman: asciilifeform: mind giving the exact versions for flask, werkzeug and whatever other shit is used in there?
diana_coman: I have python 2.7.16 flask 1.1.1 and werkzeug 0.15.5 from what I see and the reader.py fails complaining that there is no flask.ext.cache , which seems to be again some version-shenanigans
diana_coman: postgresql is 9.6
