    All Algorithms implemented in Python

    Project mention: Wikifunctions | | 2023-12-06

    Is it me or does it not seem very well thought out? Every example I've seen only has implementations in JavaScript and/or Python. I haven't seen any other languages nor a way to search by language. What a "string" means in one language can be completely different in another language. The primitive data types that the project assumes are not really supported across all programming languages.

    Also if anyone hasn't already seen them, similar projects already exist and are more complete. E.g.




    Not to mention LeetCode, CodeWars, Project Euler, Exercism can kinda serve the same role.

    Project mention: Steve Wozniak on PC board design | | 2023-07-05

    “Electronic products these days are based on chips with hundreds of connectors. Connecting them can involve hundreds of wires. A PC board is an inexpensive way to connect all the wires at once. When Steve Jobs and I started, with a blue box and then the Apple I and Apple II computers, I did the digital design, connecting hundreds of wires myself on the prototypes. Steve Jobs took the role of getting PC boards made so that we could manufacture sellable products.

    After a short while we had outside companies create the PC boards according to my designs. I was extremely proud of one design that far exceeded what had been done before. That was a floppy disk interface card so you could attach a disk and type “Run Checkbook” to run the Checkbook program, rather than finding a cassette tape labeled ‘Checkbook’ and then playing it on a cassette tape player into the computer. I was super proud of my floppy disk controller board, with 8 chips rather than the normal 50 chips.

    I wanted the PC board for this floppy disk controller to get done quickly but the company that made our PC boards was busy. So I set up a drafting table with mylar sheets and patterns that I could lay out myself, every night for a couple of weeks. I was in charge of the entire project, PC board and all. I was the last one to leave Apple every night for those weeks.

    At the end I had a very tiny number of holes connecting the top of my PC board layout to the bottom. It was a tiny number of holes because I’d planned the layout of where the 8 chips went in order to minimize single crossovers, which required holes. But I then realized that if I’d designed a part to shift bits the other way, like from right to left instead of left to right, everything would work but I’d have fewer holes.

    I stripped all my PC board layout and started over, for the next week or two, laying out my PC board according to my new, reversed, design. In the end I had only 5 holes in the PC board connecting from the top to the bottom sides. Nobody would ever know that I’d done that. It was my private perfection.

    I realized that, in my head, this PC board represented myself, and that’s how perfect (as can be) I was. When you care, it’s not about money. It’s about yourself and your ability and your desire to do as good a job as possible.

    I’m so glad that young people can create things like PC boards online. May your creativity have no limits!”

    I'm not sure I believe we understand our own learning/memory anything like enough for this not to be total pseudoscience? Reminds me of A Beautiful Mind.

  • CardStock

    CardStock is a cross-platform tool for quickly and easily building programs. It provides a drawing-program-like editor for visually laying out your programs' parts, and a code editor for adding event-driven python code.

    Project mention: Show HN: Lua Carousel, create little programs on desktop or mobile devices | | 2023-11-24

    Well, there is Cardstock, which is a Hypercard-like in progress written in Python (and which uses Python as its language rather than a Hypertalk-like). It seems a bit more modern in that it isn't going for the 1980s Mac aesthetic.
