I am wondering has anybody tried to do it with D?
By looking on the processing chain for rendering a web page,
based on mysql data,
I thought it would be very efficient, to let mysql deliver the
datasets already rendered as html using a template engine like
vibe.d diet templates.
1. I don't see, why moving HTML rendering task from vibe.d
thread to MySQL thread will give CPU benefit.
2. HTML usually bigger then data used to construct it
(sometimes much more bigger) so it will be more traffic in
pipe/socket between MySQL and vibe.d
3. MySQL database more hard to scale than WEB frontend so
moving more work to MySQL makes application less scalable.
4. This will add complexity to maintain changes
So my resume: this is bad case for UDF. Really good case is
then we have a lot of initial data to consider but relatively
small result. For example, ForceAtlas2 UDF, I think, is more
Thank you for your thoughts!
My thought was that the main benefit of using the DB engine to do
the layout rendering, would be that you do not need to convert db
values to serialized data, and than convert them to values before
you convert them to stings again.
My first idea was to make a not compiled stored procedure and
just concat() the output together with some html, but I was told,
that concat usually is quite ineffective, I tested it and the
result was: It is really slow.
The second thought is: When you get the power of vibe.d inside
mysql, than everyone who is using mysql could use vibe to do the
dataset rendering and by this you may speedup every system using
mysql without having to change the complete front end to vibe
allowing a smooth migration. (?)
Now I will try to use vibe.d as a service layer between rails and
to do some time consuming rendering of partials.
