comment Should you write your back-end as an API?
Interesting read, can you elaborate on what you did wrong when designing the API, and what you learned?

comment Auto-save user input - the smartest way?
@Vaia You don't need a confirmation for saving a backup copy, you need a confirmation for publishing the entered text, that counts no matter what way the message was entered.

comment Why aren't “fat binaries” more widely used for cross-platform applications?
Makes me wonder, is it even possible to make a polyglot executable file that works both in Windows and some *NIX?

I have to throw a -1 for "You may even save some garbage by returning the parameter itself.", see above comments.

comment From a technical point of view, could JavaScript be compiled instead of interpreted?
Whether the mesh of JIT-compilation, run-time checks and assumptions with fallbacks that make up V8 is a compiler depends on the exact definition of the word. But calling it a "pure compiler" is just plain wrong.

comment Ideal & idomatic javascript interface for RESTful API
@LieRyan You don't know how the data is structured. And for the record, my answer doesn't actually say "integer id", it says "unique id" with no implementation details given.

comment Ideal & idomatic javascript interface for RESTful API
@LieRyan I cite the very first sentence of my answer: "First of all, whatever you do, please use unique ids.". You seem to confuse the terms URI and unique id. A URI is a type of unique id, but there is no need for these unique ids to conform to a URI scheme.
