  • Looking for help with transpiling TypeScript to Golang and Python using LLMs
    4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 May 2024
    For a auth product, you probably should go with traditional code generation, not LLMs (re: all the unsolvable problems they have (hallucinations, incomplete code answers). For an auth product, you want something definite and reproducible, or you are asking for trouble.

    If you are interested in a flexible code gen framework, I built one that had this very use case in mind. (https://github.com/hofstadter-io/hof)

    I'd be happy to think / talk this through with you

  • Ask HN: Interesting TUIs (text user interfaces), maybe forgotten ones?
    57 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 May 2024
    I recently built a TUI for exploring and developing CUE, JSON, Yaml.

    Large inspiration for the overall UX comes from the Bloomberg terminal, where every function is reachable with four letter shortcut from the command box. It was really the command box that I liked. I've also built a sort of "flex" panel component for the layout so you can create as many panels as you like.



  • Ask HN: Are SQL developers generally familiar with JSON, VSCode and Docker?
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 14 Mar 2024
    Many business analysts use SQL, have for a long time. They are probably not your target audience. With the problem being JAVA specific, you'd likely want to start there

    This sounds similar to the goals of my hof tool (https://github.com/hofstadter-io/hof), lift type definitions out of code so they can be defined in one place, then generate the code for all the places. Is that sounding like what you are after?

  • Show HN: Open SaaS – An open-source alternative to paid boilerplate starters
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Jan 2024
    Having built something similar, the biggest challenge for users is that they have to use a bespoke language, like WASP here. I suspect that it is also your biggest challenge as well.

    Mine is built on CUE, which at least has the potential to become a more widely used language. CUE hasn't reached sufficient maturity for broader adoption yet, so I continue to face this same problem.


  • OpenAI: Prompt Engineering
    5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 15 Dec 2023
    Here's a big one I needed to get ChatGPT to do something more sophisticated with a JSON object response (predates functions and all that)


    It no longer worked after a model update some time ago, haven't tried recently.

    I found codellama to be much better for this and require fewer instructions, an anecdotal validation for smaller, focussed models

  • Ask HN: What's the most compelling AI prompt result you've seen?
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Nov 2023
    I was surprised out how you can define arbitrary grammars using arbitrary formulation and it would follow it. Of course you have to redo the prompt every time there is an update... such a pain


  • HTTPie Desktop: cross-platform API testing client for humans
    18 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 8 Oct 2023
    CUE is indeed a beautiful language, will get those mind juices flowing for sure!

    There is more work to be done on the codec implementation, but if you just want to split yaml/json across files, CUE is a great option

    You might also like my project, built on CUE: https://github.com/hofstadter-io/hof We have a TUI where you can explore and work with CUE, JSON, Yaml

  • Show HN: A tool to Convert JSON schemas into TypeScript classes
    7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Oct 2023
    You can pretty much make up any pseudo grammar like this one, which is a reduced JSON object that is close to CUE: https://github.com/hofstadter-io/hof/blob/_dev/flow/chat/pro...

    No need to be formal or use a standard format

  • Guidance: A guidance language for controlling large language models

    Yea, in particular for this project, they have created a bespoke templating system.

    You can get the same thing with Go text/templates by adding chat function(s) as custom a helper: https://github.com/hofstadter-io/hof/blob/_dev/lib/templates...

  • Textual Web: TUIs for the Web
    9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Sep 2023
    100% one of the best things about building a TUI is not having the pain of modern web development. I do think there is a way to have a CLI & TUI come from the same code, so you can get the best of both, or pick the best for the task at hand.

    experiments in progress here: https://github.com/hofstadter-io/hof/tree/_dev/lib/tui
