@mamund @wsREST @RubenVerborgh @ndw While I agree, I thought the topic was buried when “REST” & thing.json / thing.xml won the Webs. Change!

@mathias Makes a lot of sense for libs and client-side, I agree. Thanks again for replying and your helpful comments en suite. Cheers!

via Echofon in reply to mathias

@mathias My main argument for doing it is in 1:50 of your video. Readability and maintainability. Plus it’s on the server.

via Echofon in reply to mathias

@mathias Once at runtime, yes. Should say that it is on a node.js server upon server start, not on the client. Still bad practice?

via Echofon in reply to mathias

@mathias I do it once & recycle the RegExp. Of course banged my head b/o twitter.com/tomayac/status…. Now resetting lastIndex each time & works.

via Echofon in reply to mathias

@mathias Now building the RegExp dynamically by joining the array from twitter.com/tomayac/status… on ‘|’ and escaping ‘.’, ‘$’, ‘/’. Done :-)

via Echofon in reply to mathias

@mathias Bedankt, mate, this helped a ton: mothereff.in/js-escapes#1%5…. If we ever meet, beers on me. Thanks for openly sharing your knowledge!

@mathias Thanks, will need to check tomorrow w/ big screen (on cell now). In principal seems OK to use bi-di. Still unsure about escaping…

via Echofon in reply to mathias

In , is it good practice to write bi-di , e.g., to match prices /(€|£|₪|د.\ع)/g? Note the escaped ‘.’. TIA! (CC: @mathias)

@bsletten We write “1.234,5”, you go “1,234.5”. Take any spreadsheet software outsmarting itself trying to parse… Then have a cold beverage.

via Echofon in reply to bsletten

@bsletten Corner cases _will_ occur. Just use a proper CSV parser (or TSV), don’t roll your own (cf. @RobertFischer twitter.com/RobertFischer/…)

via Echofon in reply to bsletten

@bsletten TSV instead of CSV solves the majority of problems. Useful only if you control the other end obviously.

via Echofon in reply to bsletten

@bsletten It’s legal, but an endless source of bugs: line.split(/,/) anyone? E.g., stumbled upon readability-formatted numbers: ,”1,234.5”,
