My BarCamp Phuket presentation – Prolog as a dating aid

Pilog solve and the +Aux relation

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

I just set out to duplicate the Doctrine for dummies example, but this time for real, with a real OODB system, not some silly ORM :) Thanks goes to Alex for helping me out with the queries.... Read More

jQuery and Pico Lisp

Monday, October 6th, 2008

The heart of the problem with making work with the PicoLisp server is simple once found (thanks to Alex for helping me find it). Apache seems to use the Content-Length header to determine the length of the argument sent by XMLHttpRequest.send(), the Pico server doesn’t bother with determining the the length. It looks for a newline at the end instead.... Read More

Calling Ruby scripts from Pico Lisp

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

Templating in Pico Lisp

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

As you might know already Pico has a GUI system similar to for instance Haml. That’s all very well and fine, the problem is that as opposed to Haml a typical Pico GUI script contains a lot of logic as well, I shudder to think having designers poking around in there to output the HTML just like they want it. And we are not quite yet at the point where we are doing completely CSS controlled designs, it’s a goal though.... Read More

Regular expressions in Pico Lisp

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

This is another step towards explaining how a registration form in Pico Lisp can work, I promise you we will get there but there is a lot of ground to cover still.... Read More
