Heagle: He doesn’t like things running on top of things it seems
Florentine: It would be interesting to write a babel that outputs to asm. hmmm yes.
Tumulty: Soteros: you can’t do that really. asm is a strict subset of JS
Bosco: No i mean literal ***embly code
Tumulty: Sure you can, but what would be the point?
Tumulty: So you can run your JS programs on your trusty MIPS board in the closet?
Tumulty: You jump to that register all you like then
Nored: Tumulty: where you cant run your code is a pretty severe limitation. For instance a binary library written in C can run pretty much anywhere. JS code is still stuck to whereever there is a JS run time environment.
Tumulty: Nored: that binary can be ported with emscripten to JS
Tumulty: Nored: and, “places arbitrary C can run” are *dwarfed* by “places arbitrary JS can run” at this point
Nored: It can, but I still need emscripten and JS run time
Tumulty: Not “need”. “get to have”
Nored: Another way to think about it is that you can write a fast C compiler in C, but you cannot write a fast enough JS compiler in JS. This is due to environmental limitations on where the code can run more than anything else.
Slot: I have a for loop inside a function. Does calling return inside a for loop behave as break in this case?
Emperor: It will also return the function
Nored: Hackal: return breaks both the loop and the function
Azure: Alright thanks for help.
Nored: Hackal: np, it becomes more complex when you have nested functions and you want to break the outer function from the inner
Crout: Nothing complex in my case https://jsfiddle.net/rpf5pbsc/
Wyche: Nored: that’s why we have nodejs ;
Nored: Soteros: node is just a different API
Tumulty: Nored: yes but why would you need to do that
Bidle: Hackal: that would be much neater using an iterator of some kind
Bidle: Do we have Array#every in es5?
Konopacki: Tumulty: function every
Bidle: There you go then hackal!
Nored: Tumulty: what if I wanted to write stand alone applications in a JS like language that have nothing to do with the web
Tumulty: Nored: then you use node, or node-webkit. it’s done all the time.
Bidle: Yep, clojurescript can run on node
Tumulty: Nored: github’s Atom editor, and Microsoft’s new one i forget the name are both built with node-webkit / bw.js
Bidle: Isn’t the ms one just visual studio still?
Holderby: Tumulty, atom is built with electron, not nw
Nored: Tumulty: node-webkit is a viable solution, but I would still prefer a static compile state for an application that can be installed to the client directly without a helper environment
Tumulty: Biddlecome: isn’t electron nw under the hook?
Tumulty: Nored: that’s what node-webkit is
Ohm: Tumulty, nope, it’s their own, uses chromium
Tumulty: Bidle: https://code.visualstudio.com but it’s a new thing
Broadnay: In what order Array.prototype.every go? Because I know that my streams array will have streams ordered by views from highest to lowest
Tumulty: Hackal: arrays are always ordered the same.
Tumulty: Hackal: “stream” and “array” are two unrelated types.
Nored: So far Atom is the only editor I have running my app in directly. I need to figure out how to make editor plugins for my app
Tumulty: Ugh, the plugin model
Bidle: Tumulty: yep, that’s the one
Bidle: Tumulty: i believe hackal is talking about streams as the name of their array of objects
Cromley: I have a string of x/y point data
Tumulty: Hackal: if it’s an array, then it’s indexed, and literally everything will iterate it from 0 to .length – 1
