00:47:30  <substack>and/or replicated hash ring peers
00:47:43  <dominictarr>that is on the TODO list too.
00:47:47  <substack>where you just mash the "more peers" button
00:47:51  <substack>and you get more cloud
00:48:33  <dominictarr>what about you pass a function to a function...
00:49:34  <dominictarr>spinup(function (stream) { var doc = new (require('crdt').Doc); stream.pipe(doc.createStream()).pipe(stream) })
00:49:58  <dominictarr>and it starts the server on a node somewhere and you can stream to it.
00:50:09  <substack>stream serialization as a service?
00:50:29  <substack>stream bucket
00:50:35  <dominictarr>this would be a tiny PaaS

00:50:55  <substack>if only there were a distribution platform for tiny services...
00:51:27  <dominictarr>and maybe it could pick servers that are nearby the client requesting the service...
00:52:03  <substack>distributed computing as a service
00:52:11  <substack>but not a single service, lots of tiny services
00:52:25  <ralphtheninja>aye, I've thought about that as well

00:52:51  <substack>yes
00:53:00  <ralphtheninja>like a distributed unix

01:07:36  <dominictarr>really, I don't think that street crime is a huge threat to society
01:08:03  <dominictarr>it's white collar corruption that is the threat to the future of humanity.
01:08:20  <ralphtheninja>white collar corruption?
01:08:32  <st_luke>dominictarr: street crime is a threat to communities
01:08:34  <dominictarr>yeah, government & corporations.
01:09:08  <ralphtheninja>agree
01:09:17  <dominictarr>yeah, but people don't get into street crime because it's fun, but because they are hungry.
01:09:36  <dominictarr>I'm not saying it's not a problem.
01:09:48  <dominictarr>I'm saying that it's a small problem in the scheme of things
01:09:52  <st_luke>dominictarr: or because of drug addiction, or boredom
01:10:01  <Raynos>jjjjohnnny: it would be stupid if it didnt work on both node & browsers
01:10:07  * _sorensenquit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
01:10:33  <dominictarr>and that it's a problem that is exaggerated for political reasons (such as to distract from white collar corruption)
01:10:43  <jjjjohnnny>Raynos: so it streams webcam and mix to the server peer then?
01:11:00  <Raynos>jjjjohnnny: it doesnt emulate mediastreams. Only peer connection & data channel
01:11:24  <jjjjohnnny>dominictarr: all levels of crime can be fought through positive interventions like education and opportunity-making
01:11:25  <dominictarr>st_luke, that is another problem. there is a suplus of creative talent and energy, and it's really hard to find someplace to direct that.
01:11:30  <Raynos>chrisdickinson: Hell yes! Preferably one in the browser as well
01:11:58  <dominictarr>jjjjohnnny, agree
01:12:00  <st_luke>A couple of years ago a couple dumb kids pulled a knife on me in upstate NY and jacked my cell phone and sold it for < $100, anyway it got recovered and the kid got sentenced to 4-6 years for armed robbery. I don't think he did it due to hunger or drug addiction, most likely boredom.
01:12:36  <jjjjohnnny>i would put all my money on educating people so we had 10 millions coders, 10 million microbioloists, 10 million every scientist
01:12:36  <substack>we need to get these kids building robots
01:12:42  <substack>exactly
01:12:46  <dominictarr>yeah agree
01:13:03  <substack>I mean if you are going to rob people at least do it with a robot
01:13:06  <dominictarr>st_luke, that is a really really expensive way for the state to deal with that problem
01:13:12  <st_luke>I could relate, because I committed crimes as a teenager due to boredom also. boredom is the same reason I never finished high school and college.
01:13:40  <ralphtheninja>st_luke: same here
01:14:02  <jjjjohnnny>st_luke: idleness happens in absence
01:14:09  <st_luke>dominictarr: I agree, especially when by convicting a kid of a felony the state is sentencing him for life, even if he only spends a year in jail.
01:14:12  <dominictarr>like it probably cost hundreds of thousands to send that guy to prison for 4 years
01:14:38  <dominictarr>would be cheaper to send him to college
01:15:08  <jjjjohnnny>yeah saving people from crimes and punishments would effectively redistribute wealth
01:15:20  <ralphtheninja>and politicians respond by increasing the penalties instead of trying to find the root cause
01:15:49  <st_luke>I'm not personally for wealth distribution, I'm for wealth redefinition if anything.
01:16:13  <dominictarr>in most western countries, they basically pay people not to steal, to some degree.
01:16:18  <dominictarr>(except US obv.)

01:16:39  <substack>dominictarr: the US still has welfare and many indirect forms of benefits
01:17:04  <dominictarr>yes. It just doens't seem as comprehensive.
01:17:54  <dominictarr>jjjjohnnny, when you say it like that is sounds like you are gonna take wealth from some people and give it to other people
01:17:56  <st_luke>US culture, finance, justice and education are based on classism derived from the tribal nature of humans
01:17:58  <ralphtheninja>that's why we need to work on developing more p2p stuff, it's essential for many things, p2p = freedom
01:19:00  <jjjjohnnny>dominictarr: SIR I SAID NO SUCH THING /RAEGAN
01:19:20  <jjjjohnnny>i demand a takeback
01:19:29  <dominictarr>but what I'm wanting really, is to run the govt more efficently, making better decisions, so that you achive better results for less.

02:39:06  <dominictarr>rvagg, this is where the cool people hang out.
02:39:14  <rvagg>dominictarr, Raynos: btw, have you looked at writeStream() ? it converts writes into batch operations where they are within the same tick.. probably not exactly what you're after tho I spoze
02:39:24  <rvagg>this is the substack cult eh?
02:39:29  <Raynos>yes
02:39:36  <Raynos>write stream wont do what we need for hooks
02:39:43  * rvagglooks for the streaming-altar
02:39:43  <Raynos>I think hooks and before / after events should go into levelup
02:39:49  <dominictarr>well, it just happens to be substack's channel.
02:40:01  <dominictarr>that is incidental
02:40:43  <dominictarr>so, rvagg Raynos and I have been working on a map-reduce extension for levelup
02:41:19  <rvagg>yes, I've had a look at your code but it's too dense to take in in 5 mins
02:41:28  <dominictarr>yeah, it's ugly
02:41:32  <dominictarr>I'm tidying it up
02:41:37  <dominictarr>and refactoring it now
02:41:42  <dominictarr>spliting the parts, etc.
02:41:51  * rvaggwill wait for a readme
02:42:00  <dominictarr>haha. good decision.
02:42:05  <Raynos>rvagg: I think keyStream and valueStream are too much
02:42:08  <rvagg>so what do you need?
02:42:08  <Raynos>it bloats the API
02:42:24  <Raynos>the same way I think createReadStream and createWriteStream are too much in mux-demux
02:42:37  * ralphtheninjaquit (Read error: Operation timed out)
02:42:41  <rvagg>Raynos: the reason they are in there is so that you can avoid passing too much from the C layer to V8, if you just abstract around a complete readStream() then you pass too much
02:42:46  <dominictarr>they are just aliases, who cares.
02:43:21  <dominictarr>I guess you could have an readstream option {keys: true}
02:43:32  <dominictarr>if that is what Raynos is thinking
02:43:46  <rvagg>https://github.com/rvagg/node-levelup/blob/master/src/iterator.cc#L52-L55
02:43:53  <dominictarr>anyway Raynos, this isn't important.
02:43:54  <rvagg>yes, those options are there, that's how valueStream and keyStream work
02:44:10  <Raynos>rvagg: keyStream and valueStream just call readStream({ keys: })
02:44:16  <Raynos>oh your right
02:44:19  <Raynos>its not important
02:44:22  <Raynos>its pure bikeshedding :D
02:44:28  <dominictarr>okay, so what IS important
02:44:29  <Raynos>hooks!
02:44:32  <Raynos>hooks are important
02:44:33  * rvagglikes the bikeshed
02:44:38  <dominictarr>sush! I'm getting to that!
02:44:56  <dominictarr>so, the thing that is soooooo great about level db
02:45:05  <dominictarr>is that it's only the HARD part of a data base
02:45:05  <Raynos>dominictarr: https://github.com/rvagg/node-levelup/issues/29
02:45:31  <dominictarr>& we get to build all the soft parts in js.
02:45:52  <dominictarr>this is the javascript way: polyfills all the way down.
02:46:22  <dominictarr>we just get given a crappy, but basically there API from the browser, or whatever
02:46:29  <dominictarr>and then we polyfill it in JS
02:46:49  <dominictarr>when you think about it, node.js is really just a polyfill.
02:47:25  <dominictarr>rvagg, so basically, we are building the other features that a database normally has
02:47:42  <rvagg>re hooks, can't you just mess with __proto__ ?
02:47:42  <dominictarr>but since we are doing it in JS we can make it really flexible and modular.
02:47:55  <dominictarr>rvagg, so, you COULD
02:48:31  <dominictarr>but we'd probably get better compatibility if we figured out a more disiplined way to do it.
02:48:50  <dominictarr>so, one thing you need is a queue system
02:49:15  <dominictarr>I'm using this already to make map-reduce reliable
02:49:37  <dominictarr>so, like, if the process crashes, we need to restart unfinished map-reduce jobs
02:50:10  <dominictarr>so, we need a reliable job queue for that.
02:50:18  <dominictarr>but if we expose that feature,
02:50:26  <dominictarr>then we get a DB with a job queue too!
02:50:53  <dominictarr>and in some applications, maybe you don't care about M-R
02:51:02  <dominictarr>but you want job queues
02:51:32  <dominictarr>with levelup, you can have that.
02:52:26  <Raynos>Im thinking that before and after events might be the same as hooks
02:53:04  <Raynos>whats the performance penalty between put and batch with a single value?
02:53:08  <dominictarr>Raynos, well, for the queue to work right, we need to turn a PUT into a BATCH
02:53:22  <rvagg>Raynos: we can test that now!
02:53:32  <Raynos>i mean you can implement before and after as hooks not the other way around
02:53:38  <dominictarr>you could also implement a scuttlebutt style replication with that method.
02:53:48  <dominictarr>Raynos, yes.
02:54:05  <dominictarr>even SQL has triggers.
02:54:15  <dominictarr>it's the same thing, but more flexible
02:54:43  <substack>https://github.com/substack/shell-stream/blob/master/server.js
02:54:48  <substack>ssh over http, pretty much
02:55:06  <substack>now I just need to figure out how to make the stream seem like a real tty
02:55:12  <jjjjohnnny>can you set outgoing port on a net.connect?
02:55:17  <dominictarr>substack, you should call "secure-peer" "secure-stream"
02:55:24  <substack>and https://github.com/substack/shell-stream/blob/master/client.js
02:55:37  <dominictarr>because that is like "ssh" is "secure shell"
02:55:52  <dominictarr>or maybe "sst"?
02:56:47  <dominictarr>substack, now we just need the jQuery of the fs
02:57:20  <substack>the cool thing about this ssh is that you don't need root to run it
02:57:23  <dominictarr>and then we can do everything from a node repl instead of ever using sh.
02:57:24  <substack>and you can drop it into any application
02:57:30  <substack>tcp, http, whatevs
02:57:54  <dominictarr>ABSOLUTELY

03:01:11  <rvagg>Raynos: benchmarks for single-put batch() in master now.. it's kind of expensive but I don't know how much of that is because of the JS overhead, there's a fair bit of preprocessing going on before it gets passed to leveldb
03:01:30  <Raynos>#winning
03:01:39  <substack>Raynos: it also gives you a single stream instead of having to care that the xhr requests are all separate
03:01:51  <Raynos>oh I see
03:02:04  <Raynos>it sends multiple writes as single xhr's
03:02:04  <substack>and it does timeouts if it hasn't heard any data from a request id in a while
03:02:08  <substack>yes
03:02:19  <substack>since xhr can't keep requests open
03:02:25  <Raynos>it can :p
03:02:29  <Raynos>but it cant send more data
03:02:30  <substack>for writing?
03:02:32  <substack>yes

03:09:02  <Raynos>I think it might be useful
03:09:08  <ik>jjjjohnnny: and you bind to a socket on your local network interface
03:09:12  <Raynos>maybe we should have before & after events

03:19:52  <rvagg>Raynos: comma-first but I don't like my commas squishing up against the previous indent level so they get indented
03:20:10  <Raynos>rvagg: I also have comma first. it works way better with 4 spaces
03:20:14  <rvagg>like isaacs's style but extra indent for nested commas
03:20:49  <rvagg>Raynos: I like my var names to line up so 2 char indenting works perfectly with the width of 'var'
03:21:14  <Raynos>ok I'm writing in 4 spaces because my text editor can't auto indent to your style
03:21:19  <rvagg>I'm no format-nazi tho., but I appreciate consistency

03:30:11  <substack>haha node 2.4 is still on nexus
03:32:20  <rvagg>Raynos: beautifully integrated Sinon for mocks/stubs/spies, excellent assertion framework, none of the pollution that Mocha does (leaves your env completely alone), plus it's great for browser-side testing too.
03:32:35  <Raynos>I see
03:32:42  <Raynos>well i hate its assertion framework already
03:32:42  <rvagg>Raynos: unfortunately they haven't released a buster-node yet so you get a ton of browser deps even when you want it just for node testing
03:32:46  <Raynos>its not backwards compatible with node assert

04:05:51  <dominictarr>yeah, I'm not sure that the part he's made consistent really needs to work like that.

04:06:28  <dominictarr>Raynos, rvagg it's not actually centralized. I think
04:06:48  <Raynos>Hmm
04:06:53  <Raynos>I dont think its centralized actually

08:26:01  * niftylettucequit (Max SendQ exceeded)
08:26:02  <dominictarr>Raynos, no
08:26:15  <dominictarr>scuttlebutt is a vector clock already
08:28:05  <dominictarr>if you want to do something useful, we need a synchronized auto adjusting clock
08:28:54  * niftylettucejoined
08:28:58  * niftylettucequit (Max SendQ exceeded)
08:29:44  <Raynos>how is scuttlebutt a vector clock?
08:31:41  <Raynos>i want a vector clock myself because I cant trust clients the have a correct timestamp
08:31:59  <Raynos>Does the synchronized auto adjusting clock handle the "some client has his local PC time 3 weeks in the future" problem?
08:37:17  * niftylettucejoined
08:39:08  <dominictarr>well, what you would do, it just tell him to change his clock.
08:39:32  <dominictarr>or rather, use a "virtual clock" that is set to a reasonable time.
08:39:47  <Raynos>how do you create a virtual clock
08:39:56  <Raynos>without asking a central service for what the current time is
08:40:10  <dominictarr>the problem with normal vector clocks in SB is that currently it's using a clock to decide which writer wins.
08:40:55  <dominictarr>a vector clock tells you what update is concurrent, but it doesn't help you decide who should win.
08:41:23  <dominictarr>Raynos, I think you could do a distributed p2p synchronization
08:41:33  <Raynos>maybe
08:41:41  <Raynos>the problem is its a pain in the fuckign ass to bootstrap
08:41:58  <Raynos>because I need it for peer nodes which I use to bootstrap the list of nodes to create the network topology
08:41:58  <dominictarr>you'd just ping back and forth between a number of clients, and average that out.
08:42:08  <Raynos>i see
08:42:48  <dominictarr>thats okay, it doesn't matter if the clocks are correct, just that they show approximately the same value on their face.
08:43:35  * captain_morganquit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
08:43:39  <dominictarr>if a clock joins that is too far ahead, just bump the other clocks forward.
08:43:49  <dominictarr>or set it's clock back, so that it's even.
08:43:50  <Raynos>I see
08:44:04  <dominictarr>or, maybe you could note that it's jumped

08:51:51  <dominictarr>the pope realized that the roman calendar had slightly the wrong length of the year,

09:04:44  <dominictarr>model only keeps the latest update for a key
09:05:01  <dominictarr>so the document only gets as big as the number of keys.

09:10:03  <Raynos>I'm writing expiry for Model
09:10:11  <Raynos>because I have a lot of keys
09:10:49  <Raynos>dominictarr: Would you like a PR for an expired model or is that userland?
09:11:27  <dominictarr>why do you have so many keys?
09:11:58  <Raynos>its the peer nodes set
09:12:02  <dominictarr>the problem with expiry is it's no longer consistent.
09:12:04  <Raynos>its the set of all peers connected to the network
09:12:15  <Raynos>thats ok
09:12:22  <Raynos>the peers auto update themself
09:12:26  <Raynos>every 5 seconds as a heartbeat
09:12:33  <Raynos>if the value expires it means the peer is no longer in the network
09:12:36  <dominictarr>right, expiry is okay for keys that are deleted.
09:12:53  <Raynos>expiry is also ok for keys that auto update at high frequency
09:13:19  <dominictarr>well, here I think you don't even want scuttlebutt.
09:13:30  <Raynos>hmm
09:13:32  <Raynos>maybe true.
09:13:42  <Raynos>how would I do it without scuttlebutt
09:13:42  <dominictarr>there is no point doing the hand shake, because you are gonna update all the keys anyway
09:13:46  <dominictarr>use repred
09:14:04  <dominictarr>it already has a example for peer to peer.
09:14:12  <dominictarr>with heart beats.
09:14:38  <Raynos>oh I see
09:17:08  <Raynos>repred is too confusing >_<
09:18:08  <dominictarr>what is confusing?
09:19:18  <Raynos>i dont understand what that map function does

09:21:57  * jden|zzzchanged nick to jden
09:26:20  <dominictarr>map turns the repred.update(X) into the TypeX that reduce uses.
09:27:32  <Raynos>and update(X) is called internally based on the changes object returned from reduce?
09:40:59  <dominictarr>no, you are meant to mutate the state object inside the reduce function.
09:41:29  <dominictarr>it's stateful, but the user is expected to use self disipline
09:44:46  <dominictarr>Raynos, much updated queue and map-reduce

23:01:02  <Raynos>#winnign
23:01:20  <dominictarr>investigating ways to set up keys to get ranges
23:01:26  <dominictarr>this will be useful for map reduce
23:01:31  <dominictarr>like you can go
23:02:02  <dominictarr>~BUCKET~2,"KEY1","KEY2" - ~BUCKET~2,"KEY1","KEY2"~
23:02:03  <LOUDBOT>OH MAN BTW WE SAW RON PAUL DECONSTRUCTS POSTMODERNISM AS A NON PRESIDENT
23:02:23  <dominictarr>to get everything in [key1, key2] group
23:02:28  <dominictarr>but also,
23:02:46  <dominictarr>the 2 at the start specifies the depth you want
23:02:52  <dominictarr>but you can ALSO do it like this
23:03:07  <dominictarr>~BUCKET~2,"KEY1" - ~BUCKET~2,"KEY1"~
23:03:07  <LOUDBOT>MAYBE I CAN FINALLY GET SOME READING DONE THERE
23:03:24  <dominictarr>and you get every sub group under key1
23:03:48  <dominictarr>this will be super awesome for spatial queries
23:04:02  <Raynos>yes!
23:04:37  <dominictarr>because you can just go, give me the line level detail of everything in tenderloin
23:04:40  <dominictarr>or whatever
23:05:09  <dominictarr>but also, you could do: give me the summary in the tenderloin
23:05:13  <dominictarr>the first is
23:05:29  <dominictarr>~SF~2,"tenderloin" ...
23:05:34  <dominictarr>but the second is
23:05:44  <dominictarr>~SF~1~"tenderloin"
23:05:58  <dominictarr>the N specifies the depth you want to go to.
23:07:50  <dominictarr>can you do this is couchdb?
23:09:51  <dominictarr>I think you might, not sure.
23:10:14  <dominictarr>I'm writing some stuff to make these ranges easy to specify

23:10:50  <dominictarr>b = bucket('bucname') ; b.range([big, true])
23:11:40  <dominictarr>returns a range that will return everything inside big, at level 2
23:11:48  <dominictarr>b.range([big])
23:12:28  <dominictarr>will just give the summary for the [big] group.
23:13:00  <dominictarr>you'll also be able to select through mutiple groups b.range([bigA, true], [bigB, true])
23:14:26  <ralphtheninja>dominictarr: what are you working on?
23:14:57  <dominictarr>map-reduce for levelup.

23:30:36  <Raynos>So that if you replicate from leveldb a to b they should have the same version

23:31:03  <dominictarr>I got "and a rejected handshake..."

23:31:14  <Raynos>to close sockets that try to replicate old / stale data into my db
23:31:23  <Raynos>although actually
23:31:28  <Raynos>that can just be done at the network level

23:31:43  <dominictarr>maybe we want a migration plugin
23:32:06  <dominictarr>so you specify a function to migrate 0.0.1 -> 0.0.2
23:32:20  <dominictarr>and a function to tell you what version a data is
23:32:23  * Krinklejoined
23:32:40  <dominictarr>and then whenever you read, that migration happens, if it needs to.
23:32:51  <Raynos>level.fn.migrate = function () { /* do it! */ }
23:33:30  <dominictarr>I think you'd need to specify a bit more detail
23:33:38  <dominictarr>like what ranges should be migrated
23:34:02  <Raynos>well
23:34:05  <dominictarr>if this is data that is replicated, you'd need to be able to distribute the migration too
23:34:07  <Raynos>migration is just a map reduce!
23:34:15  <Raynos>if someone writes data in the old format
23:34:17  * mikealquit (Quit: Leaving.)
23:34:21  <Raynos>map reduce it to the new format
23:34:24  <Raynos>PROBLEMS SOLVED
23:34:24  <LOUDBOT>I BELIEVE THAT ABBEY SHUTO WOULD BE MORE FUN IN BED THAN ZIVA DAVID. ZIVA WOULD WANT TO BE THE MAN.
23:34:31  <Raynos>your just forced to change key names
23:34:35  <Raynos>each time you make a db change
23:35:06  <dominictarr>not sure if key changes are what you want.
23:36:04  <Raynos>maybe
23:36:05  <dominictarr>also, it would be a particular type of MR, probably just a map
23:36:06  <Raynos>but its simple
23:36:14  <Raynos>probably
23:36:21  <Raynos>destructive map
23:36:22  <dominictarr>the implications arn't
23:36:25  <Raynos>one that cleans up after itself
23:36:36  <dominictarr>yeah, cos you are writing back into source
23:36:36  <Raynos>well if you dont want any db versioning hell
23:36:47  <Raynos>ensure you never use the same key to mean two different things
23:36:59  <Raynos>the only problem your left with is a shit ton of denormalization
23:37:04  <Raynos>but thats ok MR it
23:37:16  <dominictarr>you could do it that way, but then you'd have to build awareness of versions thoughout your whole application.
23:38:16  <dominictarr>so here is a crazy idea
23:38:31  <dominictarr>build a offline personalized npm index
23:38:37  <dominictarr>using level db
23:39:04  <Raynos>what would it index on
23:39:11  <rvagg>! DO IT !
23:39:17  <Raynos>would it just map reduce npm to valuable stuff
23:39:18  <ralphtheninja>is leveldb a mvcc db?
23:39:23  <dominictarr>rank everything like page rank,
23:39:27  <dominictarr>but personalized
23:39:38  <dominictarr>starting from the modules that you use
23:39:54  <Raynos>npmRank(function rank(module) { if (module.name === 'hoarders') { return 9999 } else { return 0 } })
23:40:07  <dominictarr>flowing into the modules that the authors of the modules you use use, and so on.
23:40:19  <Raynos>ralphtheninja: nope. but you can make it a mvcc db!
23:40:22  <Raynos>implement it in js
23:40:51  <dominictarr>what is MVCC?
23:41:07  <ralphtheninja>dominictarr: multi version concurrency control
23:41:16  <ralphtheninja>save everything, don't update in place
23:41:17  <dominictarr>ralphtheninja, ah
23:41:22  <Raynos>did substack write an npm module to go back in time?
23:41:52  <dominictarr>no. it's just put, del, get, range, and batch (deletes + puts in a single trx)
23:41:58  <dominictarr>but you can build anything with that.
23:41:59  <ralphtheninja>I'm looking for a db that's similar to Datomic (Rich Hickey the clojure dude)
23:42:04  <dominictarr>you could build MVCC
23:43:18  <dominictarr>rvagg, would it be possible to add a feature like a range query, but tell it to only return N results starting or ending from a particular value?
23:43:28  <dominictarr>like the first value after "A"?
23:43:46  <Raynos>ralphtheninja: were you at the datomic thing a few weeks ago?
23:43:46  <ralphtheninja>imagine it like git, you can have snap shots of the db .. and when you have bugs you can save the snapshot id .. makes it super easy to reproduce bugs etc
23:43:55  <ralphtheninja>Raynos: nope
23:43:57  <rvagg>you could just write a wrapper around a readStream() cause that's what it'd be doing anyway--an iterator ending prematurely
23:44:30  <dominictarr>rvagg, you just destroy the stream after the first data?
23:45:07  <rvagg>ya, destroy() and it'll clean up for you
23:45:13  <dominictarr>cool!
23:45:24  <rvagg>internally it'll make 1 more fetch than you need but that's done async anyway
23:45:25  <dominictarr>ralphtheninja, ^ you could use that to implement MVCC
23:46:06  <dominictarr>rvagg, you could make an option that was {start: x, n: number} though, right?
23:46:29  <dominictarr>(as long as it's possible, then can defer that :)
23:46:32  <Raynos>dominictarr: just use take
23:46:36  <Raynos>take(stream, n)
23:46:45  <Raynos>composition!
23:46:56  <rvagg>dominictarr: yes, a number/count option would probably be neat
23:46:58  <dominictarr>Raynos, this is a low level performance issue
23:46:59  <rvagg>make an issue for it
23:47:10  <dominictarr>oh, this reminds me
23:47:11  <Raynos>true
23:47:35  <dominictarr>do the levelup streams respect .pause()?
23:47:45  <rvagg>yes
23:48:01  <dominictarr>SWEETNESS
23:48:15  <rvagg>dominictarr: but because it prefetches 1 entry ahead on the iterators then it'll buffer and discard if you don't read it
23:48:41  <Raynos>doesnt look like it
23:48:42  <dominictarr>that is reasonable behavior for pause.
23:49:12  <Raynos>oh wait
23:49:14  <Raynos>I see.
23:49:56  <Raynos>rvagg: https://github.com/rvagg/node-levelup/blob/master/lib/read-stream.js#L123
23:50:06  <Raynos>you seem to just _read() without checking for whether your paused
23:50:07  <rvagg>actually.... it may not be buffering...
23:50:30  <Raynos>:D
23:50:34  <Raynos>thats ok
23:50:37  <Raynos>just wrap it into streams2
23:50:41  <Raynos>or in pause stream
23:50:56  <rvagg>needs more tests on stream behaviour I suppose
23:51:30  <rvagg>actually, maybe I'm wrong!
23:51:40  <dominictarr>to be fast we need it to stop reading the database when you pause.
23:51:42  <rvagg>Raynos: check out the _read implementaiton, it only goes ahead if you're "ready"
23:52:04  <Raynos>oh true
23:52:09  <Raynos>and you change status to ready+paused
23:52:11  <Raynos>so its cool
23:52:19  <Raynos>yeah it respects pause
23:52:22  <rvagg>I have a slow-stream test in there to make sure it follows the correct stream backpressue semantics, it should be all good
23:52:48  <rvagg>I put a lot of sweat into that darn stream implementation... made me hate implementing streams even more
23:52:58  <Raynos>use an abstraction
23:53:15  <Raynos>https://github.com/Raynos/levelidb/blob/master/index.js#L109
23:53:20  <rvagg>use streams2
23:53:30  <dominictarr>rvagg, stream2 arn't stable yet
23:53:35  <rvagg>ya, I know
23:53:37  <rvagg>getting there..
23:54:06  <dominictarr>we can test the streams with stream-spec
23:54:49  <Raynos>yeah I use streams2 through read-stream
23:55:06  <Raynos>but thats probably suboptimum
23:55:22  <Raynos>best to jsut wait for 0.10
23:58:03  <ralphtheninja>is there any quick way to go to a corresponding github-repo for a npm module?
23:58:45  <dominictarr>ralphtheninja, there should be a link from npm.im/the_module
