    If you've ever inquired about MessagePack before, you probably know the phrase from its official website, "It's like JSON, but fast and small." In fact, if you compare how much memory space the same data occupies in JSON and MessagePack, you'll see why the latter is a much more compact format. For example, the number 100 takes 3 bytes in JSON and only 1 in MessagePack. The difference becomes more significant as the number's order of magnitude grows. For the maximum value of int64 (9223372036854775807), the size of the stored data differs by as much as 10 bytes (19 against 9)! The same is true for boolean values---4 or 5 bytes in JSON against 1 byte in MessagePack. It is also true for arrays because many syntactic symbols---such as commas separating the elements, semicolons separating the key-value pairs, and brackets marking the array limits---don't exist in binary format. Obviously, the larger the array is, the more syntactic litter accumulates along with the payload. String values, however, are a little more complicated. If your strings don't consist entirely of quotation marks, line feeds, and other special symbols that require escaping, then you won't see a difference between their sizes in JSON and in MessagePack. For example, "foobar" has a length of 8 bytes in JSON and 7 in MessagePack. Note that the above only applies to UTF-8 strings. For binary strings, JSON's disadvantage against MessagePack is obvious.

    For saving the game, I went with MessagePack, which is a binary serialization format. This makes creating the save files much easier: each struct is simply encoded and decoded as-is, except of course for pointers, which have to be restored while deserializing.

  • Roadmap for building a highly customizable neovim UI
    1 project | | 3 Mar 2021
    Neovim communicates with GUIs by sending and receiving messages encoded as messagepack-rpc (this is a representation similar to JSON but in binary instead of plain text). The messages Neovim sends are described in :help ui-events. There are a lot of libraries, named "api clients", that can take care of starting neovim and decoding the messagepack messages for you. I find that most of the time their documentation isn't the best at conveying how to use them, so a thing I like to do to understand what needs to be done is read the code of the existing GUIs.
  • What I wish I had known about single page applications
    1 project | | 2 Mar 2021
    Like instead of DTO sending to razor I send them to vue? DTO are binary and scattered throughout memory on the server. Then the razor view collects all the stuff and serializes it into an html file. With single page, the data is collected and serialized into This becomes an advantage when the client renders a big dashboard with logs (old messages in WhatsApp Web) and states (IQueryVisiC is online) and the server only needs to send the changes. Blazor-Server-Side also works like this.
