  • Simple reddit-like CRUD website written in C
    I don't have much in depth knowledge, but it's the aproach node.js uses for handling asynchronous io. Instead of spawning a new thread for each client, the event loop can be notified when certain events happen on a file descriptor (a packet comens in to a socket) and then execute some code. You could look at epoll or libuv if you want something a bit higher level.
  • Managing Multiple Threads In Node.JS | 2021-03-31
    There is a layer of Node that's already multithreaded and that is the libuv thread-pool. I/O tasks such as files and folder management, TCP/UDP transactions, compression and encryption are handed off to libuv, and if not asynchronous by nature, get handled in the libuv's thread-pool.
  • What is the benefit of writing plugins in Lua rather than any other language? | 2021-03-29
    No you can't. The event loops in Vim and Neovim are different. Neovim uses with So the event loop itself is lua. And it is not exposed to vimscript (as far as I know)
  • Clio: A functional, distributed programming language that compiles to JavaScript
    It’s more complicated than “single threaded”. Javascript uses a thread pool. Otherwise asynchronous tasks would not be possible. Really when people say it’s single threaded, they mean the end user cannot spawn new threads manually, but the language uses many threads under the hood. Check out libuv which is the thread pool implementation used in Node

  • Beej's Guide to Network Programming | 2021-02-11
    Dr.Dobbs has had at least 2 articles on it. (Also covers select and /dev/poll but lacks epoll,kqueue)

    I remember chatting in the fringes when nodeJS was doing their proper win32 porting and they did have some issues getting things stable due to lack of documentation but iirc got some help from MS so the libuv code should be usable as a reference for behaviours (As well as being fairly battle tested by now).

  • GitHub Stale Bots – A False Economy | 2021-01-18
    I submitted a PR to make a small improvement the libuv documentation... [0] and the stale bot wants to close it on me.

    I think closing PRs as stale is particularly annoying.


  • Any opinions on GoLand IDE by JetBrains? | 2020-12-25
    Good point(s). I am working for a company which predominantly develops in Java (including me). All Java developers want to use the Ultimate Edition without even trying the Community Edition first. (I am using CE – went back to it after also giving a try to Ultimate.) The same goes for Mac over Linux laptops. Almost everybody wants to have Mac despite the increasing frequency of issues after almost every OS update (with the most recent being
