Posts I've Made
Posted 28 Sep 2012Well a new good style (not saying this one is bad, but default templates turn people away fast). I think what you're doing isn't a very good idea if you're trying to create something like DreamInCode. Why should people go to your forums instead of a larger one? There just really isn't anything for you to offer.
Thanks, and you're right, there really isn't anything for me to offer.
I'm working on changing the template, so that shouldn't be too bad soon.
But, I'm not really sure why anyone would go to my forum, do you have any idea that would make it better?
I'm sorry to ask that of you, but I don't have any ideas right now. I'm really sorry.
Posted 26 Sep 2012I want an opinion on how it can be made better.
I know it's pretty much base right now, but what appeals to the general public?
Posted 3 Feb 2012I've been using different IDEs for my programming. For example I used Komodo IDE and Geany for Python and Visual Studio for C#. But I tried out Vim once and really loved it(Through Command Prompt, not gVim). I found I coded quicker and everything came easier for me. Sure IDEs have really cool and helpful features, but they're useless if nothing works. So I currently am still using IDEs but I'm not sure if I should make the switch to regular editors, so I want your opinion.
Posted 7 Dec 2011By posting this in the Python forum I assume that you want to get pro-Python responses.
Anyways, I see you are a C# programmer; to descend into the world of scripting languages you don't have to entirely cut your ties with compiled ones. There have been implementations of both Python and Ruby in C#, known as IronPython and IronRuby, and they integrate pretty well with C#. That way you can continue working with the .NET Framework.
For me I didn't choose Python per se, it was the only class on programming in my area, so that's where I went. Ever since then, Python has always been there for me. So I guess this also works in the same way for me not choosing Ruby.
As for how Django compares to Rails, it sort of depends. I think that Django gives you more control over code and it has a great Admin, but Rails has been faster with many more configuration options. So it depends on what you need it for.
I did the opposite of transitioning over from C# to Python. I transitioned over from Python to C#(not to say that I gave up Python). It was actually very simple, considering the dot syntax was still i place, other than that, there aren't many similarities. This is why I think that going from c# to Python is easier as Ruby has even more differences.
The math seems pretty mush the same, the code probably won't be that different other than a few extra modules here and there. Plus you can still build your own modules to work out your problems, not that hard to create.
For Python there are many resources especially the documentation. Although there are many for Ruby, Ruby is still too young and doesn't have as much documentation. If you're looking for books, you can find a book on Python anywhere you go. Good luck finding good books for Ruby.
The IDE I use is Komodo Edit, and sometimes the IDLE IDE that comes with Python. Komodo Edit is amazing, it doesn't have a debugger but it more than makes up for that in functionality. Komodo Edit is free but it does have an expensive counterpart, Komodo IDE going for about $295 USD right now. The official version is 6 but I am able to use Komodo IDE for free because I got the developer Alpha 7 version(now at Beta 2). The good thing about Activestate(the company that makes Komodo) is that they focus on Dynamic scripting languages such as Perl, Tcl, and Python(they don't support Ruby except through Komodo IDE). They have whole dev packs and tools, great support, and their products are excellent. The especially good thing about the Komodo line of products is that they don't tie you down to just one or two languages, they have an extremely large range of languages that they support. But there are still other great IDEs for Python Wingware Wing IDE, that's really good also. Still, it's your choice. There aren't that many good IDEs for Ruby, but the Komodo line of products still supports it.
From my experience, Python and Python libraries run more smoothly on Unix like OS's such as BSD and Linux(I use Fedora). But Python will still run under Windows or Mac OS X. Remember Activestate, well they have their own free implementation of Python called ActivePython. Just like Python and it comes bundled with PyPI, a package index for modules created by ActiveState.
In my opinion shoot for Python.
Posted 2 Dec 2011Thanks it works now.
