if you use spring or other server-side stuff with kotlin gradle you can put your config classes in a source file and then reference that same file to type-safely instantiate the class in the kotlin build/test/deploy/run script, which is pretty neat except for the fact that you're using gradle

today i was trying to work out why some log messages were getting mixed together line-by-line in 20yo common code. was expecting to find that there were no mutexes or other synch and i'd have to add it, ho hum

turns out, there is a mutex, but... well
C++ code:
void writeString(string str) {
  for (int i=0; i<str.len(); ++i) {
    mutex.Lock();
    writeChar(str[i]);
    mutex.Unlock();
  }
}
:shepface:

lmfao. in my own tp status, i learned something new about c++ today:

C++ code:
class Base {
	int f(int x) {
		return x + 1;
	}
};

class Derived : public Base {
	using Base::f; // this
	double f(double x) {
		return x + 0.1;
	}
};

auto d = new Derived;
d->f(1); // returns 2
d->f(1.0); // returns 1.1
i had no idea this was a thing and people seem to hate it but i think it's neat

i've been wondering the same thing myself recently. problem is, we are still in the "make some shiny (but inherently flawed) feature we can show to justify our existence" mode which is what lead us to accumulate the debt in the first place. as soon as it feels like I've built some breathing room by reworking some of the decisions of the past, 4 new half-baked features get shoved down the pipeline

yeah. nowadays most of the time deploying a "config change" is exactly the same process as deploying a code change. it's just inertia that keeps people using config files.

oh yeah
I must have a different definition of configuration because we do spring and absolutely still have config files at runtime for different environments, and those files are not part of the code repo. There's no getting rid of those (well theoretically you could hardcode all this stuff (e.g. your DB URL) into the app, but... surely not?)
Yeah, there's stuff that used to be xml at compile time and is now annotations (@Bean and friends), but that's not even what I'd call "config files"

speaking of config, I had a wonderful midnight call about some files not getting published that, after an hour and a half trying to work out where they were going and giving up and pushing manually, I realised the next day that these two jobs had some old setup where the publish location was in a separate config file that wasn't environment aware and was hard coded to non prod


and then I dug up old emails and there was one from 5 years ago from me finding the same problem and going "well, these jobs are ancient and the one consumer needs to stop using them, I'm sure by the next time we deploy they'll have migrated to the replacement" :negative:

I admit one of the things I dislike about nodeJS is the lack of instant clarity on whether the code I'm writing is running on the server or the client, having different languages helps there, but I don't really buy this for configuration. It's pretty obvious if you're in a file that's just a set of configuration.

a real reason to use xml/yaml/json is if multiple different applications need to consume the same configuration, but I don't see that too much in practice either

Share Bear
Apr 27, 2004

configuration is something read in at runtime that establishes parameters for an env and sets up really important constants/flags and that functionally should be independent from the implementation

however, that can still be accomplished by writing it in the target lang and loading it at runtime like any other dep injection methodology

xml/json/yaml make this boundary more apparent, and likely reduce compile time, but if youre bouncing the application anyway (or triggering a ci/cd redeploy anyway) it just seems like a micro dsl

i argue keeping it as text vs code isnt as advantageous or youre assuming your operations people will never have to know how your app is built and works (hahahaha)

i had a job interview once where i described a process for deterministic deploys on aws autoscaling groups and my interviewer asked "why not just build an ami" and i had to be like "because i dont want each deploy to take 45 minutes".

lol I've copied and pasted and hosed up that one so many times. 'oh but now we need to paste multiple addresses!' etc.

another good one is an LDAP search. First + last, last, uid or email and all in the Garbo LDAP query syntax

e: actually I guess it's just rpn or similar. Which also explains why it feels wrong because I never used rpn when I actually did calcs

e2: I should also add that I generally only handle internal emails addresses so can home roll and modify a much simpler one. Until someone wants multiples. Or a mix of firstname.lastname@org and edls.
