And the metaprogramming machinery figures out all the parameters and the return type.
Well, that's not good..

Is there a elisp library for REST or should I just use curl and capture the output (assuming that this is possible)?
swathanthran
didi: url.el
(Action) working full time on it:)
didi
swathanthran: Nice. Where can I get it?
swathanthran
its already in emacs
didi
Great.
Thank you.
swathanthran
didi: oh btw.. its the url library not exactly REST.. it'll give you the response, you have to do everything from there.. xml parsing or whateever
didi: just like curl, you can send http request and get the http response with url-retrieve
didi
swathanthran: I imagined. I found XmlParser in the wiki, maybe that is the answer for parsing.
         

swathanthran
yeah just do xml-parse-region on the buffer you got.
didi
swathanthran: That is what I thought. fetch the page and parse it. As you can see, I've never done anything in the camp before. :-)
swathanthran
didi: nice to have a buddy, i just started on it a month ago;-)
didi
swathanthran: Great.
:-)
swathanthran

schmir
ams: either consolers loves you or he hates you.
snogglethorpe
or both
ams

does anyone here use circe? is there any documentation on the thing?
erc doesn't want to connect to rizon or freenode, so i'm using circe, but theres scant little documentation on it.
specifically how to accept files via dcc
schmir
ams: yes. you are clearly the girl (judged by your bi**hing)
ams
schmir: damn! wish my real life relationships where this easy to define
schmir
:)
ams
i love being able to say no...
it is so fun
schmir
my 3 year old daughter also does that. it's not fun for us parents, at least some of the time
         

ams
well, this was more about wages :-)
and i'm unemployeed (by own will), and can say no to any offer i dislike.
it is quite fun, and educational.
schmir
no wonder you're hanging around in #emacs all day
ams
yes!
and loving it

schmir
cause this is #emacs, not #eclipse

lisppaste
didi pasted "is this url call secure?" at http://paste.lisp.org/display/93987
didi
Is this url call secure?
ams
define secure
http urls are sent unencrypted...
and stored in histories and such
didi
But is it reasonably secure in the realm of https requests?
ams
no
didi
How can I make it better?
ams
you are sending data unencrypted
it is by definition not secure.
use http.
https
didi
Ok. And the url string?
ams
jee
z
are you deaf
?
didi
Are you?
ams
YOU ARE SENDING AN URL WITH A PASSWORD
didi
YES, I AM!
ams
IT IS AN UNENCRYPTED CHANNEL
IT IS NOT SECURE
didi
That's why I am ASKING.
ams
i told you, three times.
abbe
lol
didi
You are not listening.
ams
11:33 /ignore didi
didi
AND if I use https.
?
ams
that would be the first sensible thing you have said.
didi
?
abbe
didi: yes, use https to make sure your username/password get transported on secure channel.
didi
abbe: Nice. If I use https should I still use de (base64) thinggy? Or is it useless already?
kodein
the url still won't be encrypted, if that's what you're asking.
abbe
didi: I don't think its for you to decide. It depends on the server, whose service you're trying to use.
didi
kodein: Hum. My higher question would be: How would I access the REST API in a secure way, or at least not shouting my credentials to everyone.
ams
kodein: that thing is a troll.
didi
ams: yeah yeah yeah. I am stupid blahblablah. I know your routine. You're funny.
kodein
ams: right.
ivan-kanis
didi: you know this is #emacs and you're a bit OT
didi
ivan-kanis: Actually I am using the url.el.
ivan-kanis
oic, i wasn't there when it started ;)
didi
ivan-kanis: :-)
krz41
can someone plz tell me how to use "umlauts" in emacs post-mode (post.el) for use in mutt
i use emacs i mutt but can't type non-standard letters like ä ö ü
DuClare
Why can't you type them?
ams
don't use mutt.
and really, doen't just changing the input method work?
C-\
ü
krz41
it has to be post-mode specific because all other emacs works fine
or mutt-specific, i don't know
but vim + mutt is fine
DuClare
You still didn't answer: why can't you just type them?
delYsid
hi alex
kensanata
Hi delYsid!
delYsid: How are things in Graz?
delYsid
cold
-10
kensanata
Ugh.
-6.3°C over here.
According to the meteoschweiz.admin.ch website. :)
delYsid
And in 4 years, its the first time I have a flu again.
I was already bragging, thats what I get for that :-)
kensanata
Gute Besserung!
kodein
Hmm, only -4.2°C. If it didn't snow so much, it'd be nice weather for a walk
kensanata
kodein: That, and work...
kodein
oh, my work problem is quite the opposite.
delYsid
Hmm, if its cold, I feel snow is better than no snow, if I am freezing, I might as well enjoy the positive aspects of it
kensanata
kodein: Out of a job?
kodein
kensanata: yeah
kensanata
delYsid: Absolutely. Too bad cities like Zürich reduce snow to grey mush within days.
kodein: Hope you'll find something to your liking soon. :)
delYsid
kensanata: same here. Also, cities tend to keep the snow away, due to increased hea production I guess
kodein
kensanata: thanks. yeah, I'm pretty hopeful too. :)
delYsid

kensanata
delYsid: There's also a lot of salt being spread all around.
ams
you guys have summer already
kensanata
ams: What, are you burried in snow?
ams
yes
snowing like fu*k outside as we speak
kensanata
Well, from here that sounds exciting. :)
ams
uhm...yes...
people keep saying that
and i don't understand the charm of snow if you gotta live with darkness for 6-7 months of the year and sh*t load of snow
kensanata
Our company will go on a trip to Kiruna at the end of March, I think.
Somebody mentioned an Ice Hotel.
ams
yeah
kodein
right
quotemstr
It's amazing how much better one's Lisp runs if the arguments to subrs come in the right order. :-)

jukkasjärvi ice hotel...

yup
