comment Why aren't there code overviews for open-source projects?
Also it's easy to underestimate how much you can learn about a project if you set a kitchen timer for 2 hours or so and Just Read It (tm).

comment Why does void in C mean not void?
You could interpret void as no type rather than no value. Then you get consistent meanings method with no return type and pointer to untyped value.

comment Implementing a basic interpreter - should I learn regular expressions?
@SK-logic Agreed that there's a better tool for the job, but it's nice to remember that you can as much as match a context free language with regexes. About parsing - I don't know TBH. Brain food: nikic.github.io/2012/06/15/… + regex.alf.nu

OTOH current regexes (most implementations, e.g. PCRE) are much more powerful than regular expressions.

comment How to have my callbacks authenticated in a REST app?
@MichaelK Not sure we're on the same page; this interaction seems to live outside of the scope of OAuth. Assume a client has set up a callback inside my application that asks me to post to https://client_app.example.com/callback_for_myapp. When my app is about to POST there later on, are you suggesting that the client should rely on TLS Client Authentication and call it a day?

comment Is Windows a “second class citizen” in the Django community?
"Why not Linux" makes sense here since it's trivial to set up a virtual Linux machine. Even easier with tech like Vagrant. I use that setup a lot.

comment Trying to do some Obfuscation, How should I approach this particular case?
So what you want is "5 elements present in the DOM at any given time", as opposed to "25 elements in the DOM but all except 5 hidden via CSS"? This sounds like performance optimisation.
