As an active Python developer, what would you add to or
change about the following:
I like this article very much. IMO python's generators and
list comprehensions are the two things that are the most
difficult to replace when switching to another language. Hence
I would explicitely make a link with list comprehensions in
the UFCS paragraph because it is not obvious. I would also add
a little paragraph about ranges to make the link from
generators (but maybe not with an example as it may be scarier
than it really is).
In the same way of making the parallel with python, many
developers seem to use python for web serveurs nowadays. It
would be great to include a link to vibe.d in the article.
Something simple like "or web server developments with vibe.d"
thrown in a sentence.
Also, but this one would be a sensible addition, I'm sorry to
see that nothing is said about purity or safety. I definitely
think that it can be a good selling argument, even if it goes
beyond the goal "Writting Python in D".
Otherwise, I find the article very good. It emphasis the good
points, even those that are often forgotten like dub (because
pypi is so important in python).
I'll try giving it to some friends to see what they think
about it :)
should we add a link to the wiki and ask author if we could
mirror there ?
This section on wiki looks like it could with a bit of fleshing
I just seen what you did in the wiki, that's great! I don't have
much time to invest tonight but I'll definitely do my part of the
job in a day or two.
