Re: [Lift] Re: Lift - GAE Version

2010-01-14 Thread Wilson MacGyver
I just wanted to point out that clojure would be a nonstarter anyway on GAE.
Without threading, you can't use STM as well as some of the killer features of
clojure.

 Clojure is an elegant language but it is a Lisp and it is dynamic -
 and that but is very real and pragmatic to me. Scala on the other
 hand, is almost simply what we need - that's the best I can tell.
 Again but not because of it's power in concurrent computing, rather
 because of it's EXPRESSIVENESS and EXTENDABILITY and providing rich
 options for tailoring data structures in a static language - traits
 are a real joy to use.

Re: [Lift] Hosting problem, could PHP hosting front end the Liftweb? or is there cheap Liftweb hosting?

2009-11-16 Thread Wilson MacGyver
I would highly recommend you check to see if it's possible to find
java/tomcat hosting.

If you have decent amount of customers. You may also want to consider setting up
a EC2/S3 instance and run your own server that way.

using php front end to proxy like this, I don't think comet feature will work.

 Hi,

 I will explain my problem, generally it is easy and cheap to get a PHP
 hosting account, often my new customers for websites have a PHP
 hosting as they are on the cheaper end of websites.
 My real server is using dyndns and is located at home.

 Although I have one server, I cannot host many domains on it. So my
 thought is that if I could write a PHP script I could use that to
 mirror my real server, also conbined with a .htaccess. So a request
 going to the PHP server hosting the domain would be re-directed to my
 real server and the content sent back to the client.
 I guess a iframe would work, but thats ugly. There's a few ways to do
 this.

 What about the Javascript and Ajax, could that work cross-domain? For
 example, going directly to server rather than proxy by the PHP
 hosting?

 Well I'll try it out some time soon and put some followup info on
 here.

 This is all because its not so easy to get cheap Liftweb hosting! ...
 or does anyone have a solution for that?

 Thanks, Philip

[Lift] Re: Lift for a backend REST Server

2009-11-09 Thread Wilson MacGyver

there are several advantages.

1: you get to leverage type safety and the excellent XML support
of Scala, and lift-json.

2: assuming it's not a open for all public REST server, you'd have to
deal with security/auth. Lift will help here.

3: In the past, every time I've done a backend REST server project,
soon or later, you end up going you know, I wish I can throw together
a couple of simple backend admin pages. Lift makes that easy.

On Mon, Nov 9, 2009 at 4:04 PM, Alex Black a...@alexblack.ca wrote:

 Hi, I'm curious what your thoughts are on using LIFT to implement a

 Is this a good use of Lift? What are the advantages of doing this with
 Lift rather than just Jetty, or another library such as Restlets.
 Thanks!

 S == Stateful

 Back when I started doing Lift, there were no IDEs, no code completion, and

[Lift] Re: How much Scala knowledge is needed to start coding a simple blog with Lift?

2009-10-15 Thread Wilson MacGyver

Generally for people new to scala but with primary intention to
explore lift, I suggest
the following

Get David Pollak's Beginning Scala book, read ch 1-5. (I still think
it's a good idea to read ch 6 to know how actors work, but for using
lift, you can
put it in the back burner.)

Then start on lift tutorial. Since you already know java and rails. A bunch of
David's comparions to Ruby/Java will feel right at home for you.

Also with IntelliJ now have a opensource community edition with scala support.
I highly recommend that as a Scala IDE. But for the purpose of learning,
The Scala Repl will be enough for exploring.

Good luck and have fun.

no, if you are using the current milestone or snapshot, you'll see it's still

I don't think lift will switch to 2.8 anytime soon. too many changes

this point with 2.8 snapshot.

Or in short, let mvn take care of which scala to use.

[Lift] Re: Use Rails as front and Scala as end ?

The simplest way is to use scala to write web services and use rails
to make REST request to scala. I mean, you can go all out and
write the web service using scala lift, and use rails to write the front
end per se.

Having said that, unless you have legacy applications or some very
specific reasons, I don't think it's a good way to start out a new project.

I'm running Snow Leopard, Maven 2.2.1. And I use git pull to keep

I've been doing that for the past 3 month or so now. It's only broke

 To be honest, if you just want to use lift then you really don't need

[Lift] Re: Proper way to upgrade Lift and Scala libs?

Got it, thanks for the info. Staying with 2.7.5 then. Just finished
moving to 2.7.6
for non-lift stuff yesterday, reverting... :)

 can you expand on that? Do you mean 2.7.6 is a broken release for using it

 Both.
 EPFL took a single change off the 2.8 development branch and grafted it onto
 2.7.5 without testing beyond the standard Scala tests, without any beta
 period, without any discussion on scala-internals, and without any notes to
 the various stake-holders in the Scala community.  The change seems to break
 existential types.  Lift will not compile with the change.  Code compiled
 with the change will likely not work with 2.7.5 and code compiled under
 2.7.5 will have different pickling (serialization) of Scala-related metadata
 in the class files.
 So, stay as far away from 2.7.6 as you can.

[Lift] Re: Comet Chat

2009-08-24 Thread Wilson MacGyver

Hi Bjarte,

I am the one who wrote that post. It came out of a 1 hour presentation
that I did for my local java user group to show what lift can do. So it
was very minimal. Since most people attending are new to both
Scala and Lift.

I second David's suggestion. For a more full featured version
check out

http://demo.liftweb.net/chat

In fact http://demo.liftweb.net/ has quite a bit of example.
And I believe all the code are also available from David Pollak's
github repo.

Thanks,
Mac

 on how this can be fixed? Is it not possible to just update part of

[Lift] Re: Becoming a Scala/Lift Guru

2009-07-06 Thread Wilson MacGyver

I would echo David's comment. Scala is a powerful language with high
complexity budget. I think it's important to learn the fundamentals of
Scala first and build on top of it.

 Eric,

 It seems that you want to hike the Appalachain Trail at marathon speeds.
 I'm not sure it can be done.  It took me 18 months with Scala before I felt
 comfortable with it and my learning curve with new languages is pretty good
 (it took 2 weeks to get comfortable with Ruby and 3 months before I felt
 that I had mastered it.)  I do not yet consider myself a Scala guru,
 although I consider myself very skilled with it.

 All of us have different learning styles, but I'm not sure that your goal of
 understanding object hierarchies before sitting down to code is one that I'd
 recommend.

 I'd suggest playing with small pieces and getting them to work for you.
 Perhaps the following order might be a starting place:

 Install Scala 2.7.5 and just play with the REPL (the interactive
 interpreter.)  This will give you a good feeling of what can be done with
 Scala.  See how data can be manipulated. (3 or 4 days... perhaps assisted by
 Beginning Scala.)
 Install Maven on your machine and create the Lift hello world app:
 http://wiki.liftweb.net/index.php/HowTo_start_a_new_liftwebapp (1 to 2
 days... also use a normal text editor, not an IDE... installing IDEs can be
 a rats nest of problems... TextMate for the Mac is the best choice, but vi
 or emacs are also good if you already know them.)
 Run through the ToDo example in Lift (5 or 6 days)

 By this point, you should have a bucket full of questions.  Ask them.  Ask
 them as your going.  Ask them when you get to breaking points.

 As you're spending your two weeks touring through Scala and Lift, start
 thinking about what you want to build.  Think from the UI back (that tends
 to be the easiest for most people... then think about how to interact with
 something and then go backward from it.)  Scala allows for better
 composition of application (using smaller parts to make bigger
 functionality rather than thinking about gross level object abstractions).
 So, draw your UI on a piece of paper and then start writing down what pieces
 each UI component needs.  You should be able to build a simple, piece by
 piece screen that does what you want it to.  Once you've got it working,
 think about how to combine and normalize pieces of functionality.

 As always, we're here for you.  The Lift community will help you, but we ask
 that you document your learning (perhaps via blog or wiki or Twitter) so
 others have the benefit of the work you've done.

 Thanks,

 David

 Guys,
 Thank you very much for all your answers.
 Having a community like that, I know is half way there for anyone.
 I am very very very eager to learn, that's my number one priorite
 right now and the e-commerce is an example to work with some real
 application and apply logic and a database to learn how put the
 classes together.
 It's not a hobbie I found another passion in my life besides my wife,
 my dog, my music and it's web programming.
 I like it all since css,ajax to actionscript to back side languages
 and the logic behind it.That's why I quit Civil Engineering and move
 to Computer Science years ago, but some stuff happens yada,yada.yada,
 here I am several years later trying to learn again.
 I feel better and more prepared than before and without distractions.
 I said a month but I have all the time in my hands right now so it
 could be until 2010 if necessary, full time. I wish I could work doing
 something like this sometime.
 Before I even learn scala, I have to get the logic how to create an
 app first in my head, like which items would an object and they will
 related to each other then to a database,it's not about create a
 simple program only,abstract,it's about how to put all little
 programns together to create something, in this case could be an e-
 commerce.Then I could learn the advanced concepts of Scala, functional
 programming and stuff like that.
 Maybe an e-commerce has a lot of logic involved is a good start to get
 my head around programming web apps with that example.
 I don't know if you guys understand what I meant,what I need to learn
 first, but even a book that explains that would be good, I read some
 books about design patterns and stuff but none of them applied in a
 real application.
 It's not even regular regular programming logic, I need to learn like
 how a put a app in a modular way, one thing on top of eachother, I
 don't know it that's the way to think about that, how classes will
 interact with eachother,Interfaces.
 Anyway, keep your advices coming and in case you know a book that
 explains that would be awesome.
 Thanks again.

 Guys,

 I just want to say that I haven't started using Lift yet but I already
 love it.  This community is very supportive and responsive.  Keep up the
 awesome work!


 Grin!  This is the kind of message (and thread) that makes coming home from
 vacation a very good thing!

 My most recent Lift/Scala preso is the dpp_osb.odp file in
 http://github.com/dpp/lift-samples/tree/61c376dc9f0d99113229894d4a5b8b4de0041470/presentations/2009_dpp_qcon_tss

 Also, please see http://liftweb.blip.tv

 Basically, the preso is building the chat app in 40 lines of code in front
 of people, then discussing the Scala language features that make it
 possible.




 Jeremy

  OK, just ignore this message, it was a *Scala* presentation, not a
  *Lift* one - sorry, I read your post too quickly - and no, the fact
  that we were in Lift ml didn't make me find that strange :)

[Lift] lift presentation

2009-06-25 Thread Wilson MacGyver

Hi,

I'm doing a presentation on lift to my local java user group next month.

I'm wondering if any of you have slides on lift that I can borrow/leverage? :)

Thanks,
Mac
