  • Patterns for consuming a throttled/rate limited external APIs?
    2 projects | /r/dotnet | 20 Jun 2023
    https://github.com/dotnet/reactive has a lot of different time related extensions for "events". Maybe you'll find something for yourself, if you google for rate limiting with reactive.

  • MVVM Question: How do you manage the interaction between Model and ViewModel?

    I'd use a dedicated event bus based on Reactive Extensions or MediatR to publish domain events from your domain services. This probably doesn't solve all your ViewModel update problems as is, maybe you need to revise the granularity (maybe you can have smaller ViewModels that refresh single property that exposes the Model) and lifespan (sometimes you can create a ViewModel, make it perform it's task and then discard it completely) of your ViewModels.

    Typically if you want to notify interested parties (ViewModels in case of WPF) of Model changes you'd use some kind of pub-sub mechanism like Reactive Extensions or MediatR. Your ViewModel can subscribe to an event bus of some kind (either standalone or maybe exposed by an Aggregate if you follow DDD), your domain logic (which should be located in Model layer, not in ViewModel layer: Service, Repository, DDD Aggregate or whatever you'd like to call it) will then do something useful with your Model and publish the corresponding event to the event bus.
  • Async Methods after setting a property.
    2 projects | /r/csharp | 16 Mar 2023
    If you're finding yourself in a situation where you need to turn this behavior into a pattern because there are a lot of View Models that need to execute async business logic in response to some changes, I'd go with something like MediatR or Reactive Extensions. The idea is, again, that some other, probably business-level, component listens to changes in a decoupled way (that means it doesn't subscribe directly to your View Model, but to an event bus instead). View Model publishes change events to the event bus, and business-component reacts to these events by executing the business logic.

  • Brett Slatkin: Why am I building a new functional programming language?

    The thing that really irks me is that the generator pattern doesn't have to be an OO-first feature. Observable streams[1] work with the same basic foundation and those are awesome for FP.

    > I’m not sure what you mean by "Rx" in this context.

    From “reactive extensions”, a proper name for a family of libraries[1] (RxJava, Rx.NET, RxJS), AFAICT one of the first attempted implementations of mature FRP ideas in the imperative world and one messy enough that it took React for anything similar to reënter the mainstream.

    Compare the enthusiastic HN reception of “Deprecating the observer pattern” in 2011[2], mostly from people who heard of FRP in the functional setting, and the vitriol it received in 2018[3], from people for whom FRP came to mean Rx (and similarly confused things like Bacon.js). It is this vitriol that I meant to preemptively redirect by the mention of FRP ≠ Rx, so if you’re not aware of this history it’s no big loss to ignore it.
