Is Akka supposed to do what OTP is doing for Erlang?

-----


Near as I can tell, Akka is supposed to be Erlang for Java/Scala. OTP would be a layer on top of Akka.

-----


It looks like they've got OTP-like functionality: http://doc.akka.io/docs/akka/2.2.0/scala/fault-tolerance.htm...

-----


As far as I can tell Akka is the same thing to Scala/JVM as OTP is to Erlang/BEAM.

-----


Well I always thought that Scala itself is supposed to be the Erlang for jvm.

>CMS-style js libraries like Angular JS

CMS as in Content Management Framework?

-----


Oh drat. I meant MVC, wasn't thinking straight when I wrote that.

-----


And alcohol of course.

And for the modern day drug sold at every corner a.k.a. coffee

-----


Which contains the alkaloid, caffeine!

-----


But surely you jest! Of course, you allude to hashish and opium.

-----


No, the word "alcohol" (like many English words starting with "al") is of Arabic origin.

-----


alright then!

-----


Actually, al-cohol roughly means "the blue", referring to the blue tint of many alcohol-based make-ups used in the Near East in ancient and medieval times.

-----


The word, yes, but the etymology is more related to the idea of alcohol being an 'essence' of something.

I wonder if it's feasible to hack the javascript engines (v8, spidermonkey, ...) to support languages CoffeeScript? In case the answer is positive how come nobody's doing that?

>they bought a good number of 50s era jazz cds to listen to in their bus.

It's may be because Rod Morgenstien (their drummer) is basically a Jazz Fusion musician.

Time to send Missionaria Protectiva to spread the Panoplia Propheticus among them!

Google Earth is still blocked in Iran.

Is there an HTML renderer example for this somewhere? I'm not sure how can I make a graph interactive with canvas?

-----


The sample project on Github includes some interactivity - dragging and dropping nodes.

-----


Thanks for the pointer. Actually what I'm looking for is edit/add/remove functionality. Something suitable for making a web-based concept map.

-----


What do you mean by "dynamic Lisp"?

-----


I guess I should have been clearer. It has a focus on run-time replacement of properties on objects. Duck-typing with an object-oriented emphasis. It is a dynamic language that supports lexical scoping but does not focus on the classic functional programming stuff.
