OctopusDeploy played with this to store configurations. That was supposed to allow you to have full history with branching possibilities and a straight forward way to backups. https://github.com/paulstovell/OctoDB

Hmm, I can't really write lisp, but, how maintainable is this?? https://github.com/fukamachi/fast-http/blob/master/src/parse...


It could do with some comments and doc-strings certainly, but I'd give it a pass for now as it's a new project. As for the code, I imagine that in any language, highly optimised programs can start looking pretty odd after a while. Try understanding "grep" for example:


As a guy not particularly proficient in C, that looks crazy to me. Although it does at least have decent comments, which I'd expect for such a mature project!


Why not building on top of existing full text index/search engines? Why would I choose this over something like Kibana (http://rashidkpc.github.io/Kibana/) that provides me with all this and more, is built on top of existing capable, scalable open source products, and is itself free and open source?


I don't see the benefit. it really is just a disguised switch statement, unless you do something more dynamic with the mapping between the command name and the function to call...


This reminds me of the Marshmallow challenge experiment. It turns out the best result comes from the most spontaneous and fearless groups :), using the same sort of approach as fix and repair. http://marshmallowchallenge.com


What about using your server to run the software, but flat files as storage, I could point it to dropbox for example?


I agree that the lack of touch feedback is a terrible experience. But this is nevertheless an amazing piece of technology that opens new doors to a lot of applications (in the sense "apply", not software). We've seen what the community around Kinect has been able to build with much less powerful captors. I'm excited to see what people might imagine and achieve with this one. Moreover, nothing prevents you to couple this impressive captor with any other device that would provide you with other sensorial feedbacks. And why narrowing it down to a control device? Why couldn't it be used to gather other kinds of input? Monitoring activity? Assisted vision? Who knows what people have in mind for it?


there are some more advanced stuff here, still not expert though : https://github.com/Gazler/githug

would be cool to actually run githug under that website :)


Define expert, I'll see what I can do!


"the "currentUser" model will emit an event to notify your application that it has changed"

That sounds like more than just wrapping knowledge to me.

Also, why do you absolutely want to fit everything into a framework? Or a pattern? Business logic goes into your domain models. Don't mix your business logic with your framework, that's about it...


Oh, you're comparing ST2 to VS without R#.

* Ctrl + D does copy lines

* you can place the cursor at multiple places since VS 2010

* Extensive search with R# (Search files, classes, methods... * using CamelCase, fuzzy..)

* sort shuffle lines, methods or any blocks with R#.

So ok, it's R#, and I agree that ST2 is amazing out of the box. (LOVE it for the Rails side project I work on) but adding R# (or standalone add-ins) to visual studio will get you there too.

Navigation within a .NET solution will always be better with VS + R# in my opinion.
