  • My mental model of Clojure transducers
    2 projects | | 10 Sep 2023
    It seems folks want a working example. Here's one in prod:

    Metabase is a BI tool, backend written mostly in Clojure. Like basically all BI tools they have this intermediate representation language thing so you write the same thing in "MBQL (metabase query language)" and it theoretically becomes same query in like, Postgres and Mongo and whatever. End user does not usually write MBQL, it's a service for the frontend querybuilding UI thing and lots of other frontend UI stuff mainly in usage.

    Whole processing from MBQL -> your SQL or whatever is done via a buncha big-ass transducers. Metabase is not materially faster than other BI tools (because all the other BI tools do something vaguely similar in their langs) but it's pretty comparable speed and the whole thing was materially written by like 5 peeps

    (nb: I used to work for Metabase but currently do not. but open core is open core)

    They backported it to v0.45x and those changes don't seem to be included:

    aka, It isn't checked in to source control publicly yet. Interesting.

    I tried to "decompile" the jars and loop over the files but it didn't yield much/wasn't clean enough to be of help.

    They haven't released the source, and the compiled versions are non-trivial to diff (e.g. there are nondeterministic numbers from the clojure compiler that seem to have changed from one to the other, and .clj files have been removed from the jar).

    The old version has `hash=1bb88f5`, which is a public commit:

    We are unsure about the right license to use, so this is a great feedback. We had a MIT license one week ago that we know that we cannot hold on long term and we felt we were lying to the community by keeping an MIT license and changing it in one year.

    By using AGPL, we feel it's the right level of restriction. It's the license used by Metabase for example ( that many companies use internally.

  • Ask HN: Open-Source Self-Hosted No-Code Platforms?
    3 projects | | 13 May 2023
    The solution really depends on what sort of problems you are trying to solve and who your customers are.

    There are a fair few low-code solutions out there for reporting and data visualisation that are great for finance and marketing teams for example. e.g. ,

    For multipurpose SMB workflows and organisational processes, I have used n8n in the recent past and found it was quite good and incredibly easy to maintain.

    For enterprise processes I'd go with Camunda (solely based on recommendations and not first hand experience). Although only parts of their platform are OSS

    Bear in mind that some of these are not suitable if you want to build something that competes with them while taking their OSS code. But are perfectly fine otherwise.

    Anyway, I have a collection of scripts that merge ActivityWatch data from all my machines and WakaTime exports to a PostgreSQL database which I then query with a project called Metabase. If you're curious, the scripts are in a repository called sqrt-data. I've been playing with this for ~4-5 years already I think.
