comment Retry method for generating unique code
Is the remote database the code is being checked against part of the same application that generates the code?

comment Retry method for generating unique code
@Stonetip You should update your question with your clarification. As it reads now it sounds like the code is generated client side and then checked with the web api. Also, why is it only 6 digits if you are concerned with collisions?

comment Storing 5000 elements on client side in a web application
I don't know why he'd use the term 'element' to describe that. But yes, it sounds like he was after HTML storage. I think your first instinct of 'why' you'd want to store that much client side was also a good one.

comment Storing 5000 elements on client side in a web application
Was a definition given for what an 'element' is supposed to be? I don't think you did anything wrong, the question is particularly vague.

@Jules "Dynamically creating tables is almost never the right answer" <--- that should be first sentence uttered by every professor at the start of every class on databases.

comment What is the best way to format complex SQL queries in Node?
if you got rid of the back-tick quotes around everything it'd be a world easier to read.

comment What do you call classes that do arbitrary work in your project?
@MichałKosmulski Which is why I said it depends on the language. There is no language tag on the question. It would not be uncommon to have a file full of functions in a Pascal file, for example. In Java it'd be superfluous, but in other languages not so much.

comment Historical precedent for why Prolog is less popular than SQL in Imperative Programming?
Maybe I'm missing something, but I think the answer here is 'people use SQL because that's what the databases support'.

comment What do you call classes that do arbitrary work in your project?
I think he's just asking for a naming convention. Usually if I add anything to the name its just 'Class'. So the class would be called 'Forum' or 'ForumClass', depending on the language begin used.

comment Why aren't there code overviews for open-source projects?
@fiatjaf What I said and what you said are not mutually exclusive. There are a lot of well documented projects. But most projects aren't documented for the reason I stated.

comment Why aren't there code overviews for open-source projects?
Most open source contributors are not paid to contribute, and they are going to do what they find most rewarding to do during their limited free time - that would be coding, not writing docs.
