FsShelter: a Storm shell for F#

I think, therefore I spam.

About a year ago Prolucid adopted Apache Storm as our platform of choice for event stream processing and F# as our language of choice for all of our “cloud” development.

FsStorm was an essential part that let us iterate, scale and deliver quickly, but even from the earliest days it was obvious that the developer experience could be improved. Unfortunately, it meant a complete rewrite of FsStorm:

  • FsStorm DSL is a really thin layer on top of Nimbus API model:
    • has explicit IDs when describing components in a topology
    • uses strings in all the names
    • matching of inputs/outputs is not guaranteed
  • FsStorm uses Json AST as it’s public API:
    • messages, tuples, configuration
    • serialization mechanism is hard-baked into the API

We’ve worked around some of the problems, usually by writing more code.

It actually makes sense that Storm itself doesn’t care about the type of the tuples/fields. It runs on JVM, which is very much typed…

About JavaScript memory leaks. Again.

Worth to read, at least, if you are not JS dev

Anton Gorbikov's Blog

Web applications are getting more and more complex from year to year. Couple of years ago nobody cared about the memory leaks on the web pages (yeah, they were really a set of web pages, but not web applications). Even if you forget to clean up some memory – it’s not expected, that user will spend a lot of time on the same page. There were a lot of navigation links, which removed information about the entire page from memory and loaded new page.

But now you cannot relate on this behavior, because now web sites turned into web applications. User loads one small HTML file, one script file and some other stuff (like CSS and images) and that’s it. Making requests from browser to servers user can stay on on the “page” for ages. In the worst scenario you will receive a report from production user: “Oh, your application…
