    looks not really specific to docker, appart the fact to setup a database quick

    1. 2

      Yeah, it’s just that Docker makes it much easier to both get the speedup, and more broadly makes it easier to just start your database as part of your unit test run.

      1. 5

        I’m afraid the speedup doesn’t really happen on OSes where Docker runs in a VM like macOS. At my daily job, I’ve measured that our automated tests are around 30% slower when the database runs in Docker.

        One should also consider using a ramdisk in addition to disabling fsync.

        1. 1

          Does ramdisk work for VM docker environments? Curious if you were able to find any speed ups in that environment.

          1. 2

            I don’t know, it’s been a long time I stopped running databases in Docker on macOS for performance reasons. Nowadays, I simply open a terminal and start the plain old database binary in the foreground on a plain old macOS ramdisk with fsync disabled. I’m not sure the ramdisk really improves things but I’ve a few gigabytes of memory to waste so…

      I would really like to see it in action on an air traffic control screen, but I suppose that’s probably not something for public consumption.

        This is the approach that Vue is getting in the next big iteration (on the branch that ditches IE11 support).

        Interesting work :)

        1. 1

          Thanks! I’ve tested it, but it is quite slow. I’m looking for ideas to improve it.

          1. 1

            Any links to learn more about this? Curious if it has speed issues like @jfet97 mentioned.

            1. 1

              I’ve studied Proxies on MDN. I’ve tested it againts a simple Rxjs code and there is too much difference.

          1. 3

            I’ve really been enjoying Nightly, super fast and I eventually liked the UI changes. (I initially missed the curved tabs)

            1. 1

              This article is nearly 2 years old now. Am I missing something?

              1. 1

                This article ( http://hhvm.com/blog/2017/09/18/the-future-of-hhvm.html) is quite recent, and refers back to the link here, so I’m guessing this is what prompted this post?

                  https://mailinglist-archive.mojah.be/oss-security/2017-09/msg00040.php seems to be the one that OP meant to link. Here’s the ticket on the emacs debbugs instance, which has much more context: https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=28350

                  1. 1

                    Indeed, thanks

                1. 2

                  Hi, are there any brief instructions on how to use it? I see the shortcuts defined in the settings but they don’t seem to work. Is it modal? This is probably obvious stuff, but I could use a little direction. :)

                  1. 4

                    You have to reload a page before the addon works in it. I don’t really know if there’s a way to work around that, but it’s like that for now at least :)

                    Also, keep in mind that add-ons don’t work on addons.mozilla.org.

                    1. 2

                      Thanks for the info. I also had to select the preset. Which should be obvious from the control label, but I was thinking it would default to qwerty.

                      1. 2

                        No, it should default to QWERTY. What version of Firefox are you using?

                        1. 1

                      2. 1

                        I had the same problem you need to manually refresh any already open tab before you can use it on that tab. Or just restart the browser.

                      1. 1

                        Is this meant to be used as a gitk replacement?

                        1. 2

                          Does anyone have any information on what actually happened? It seems to have been all scrubbed. Hard to have feelings about it without knowing. Although violations of the CoC should of course be enforced.

                          1. 6

                            Here is a screenshot of some of the scrubbed issue: https://twitter.com/maybekatz/status/899760806551666690

                            1. 6

                              Thanks a lot. “anti-Code-of-Conduct article” linked is The Neurodiversity Case for Free Speech. I support CoC, and I also support this article. I don’t see how the article can be construed as anti-CoC. (It’s also written by Geoffrey Miller, a scientist I highly respect.)

                              1. 6

                                As a perceived leader in the project, it can be difficult for outsiders to separate Rod’s opinions from that [sic] of the project.

                                This is a pretty cancerous attitude. Rod can’t control what you perceive. Without coming right out and saying it, this reads to me as The Community Shall Dictate/Censor Rod’s Personal Views. What a bunch of crap. If I perceive The Darn Kat to be a ‘perceived leader’, can I tell her what to tweet?

                                1. 5

                                  I think the problem manifest itself differently in that case: To me it seems that Rod has a rather important role in the Node project and at one point in time he accepted the projects CoC. As the perceived leader of the project you cannot decide to apply the CoC sometimes and sometimes not.

                                  Please bear in mind that nobody in this thread knows the full context of this problem.

                                The guy, Rod, posted an article that was critical of codes of conduct
