Adding comment alerts

Jolle Carlestam-3
Ke made this excellent attribution to tagswap:
http://www.lassosoft.com/tagswap/detail/web_request_params

And I wrote a comment on the same page. However, Ke was not alerted that a comment had been written and only saw it by pure chance. I in turn was not made aware that he had answered my comment and could have continued my life in complete ignorance that he responded. Thus, would it be possible to add a feature request that a tag or page author is alerted when a comment is made? On tagswap as well as on other relevant sections of the Lasso site.
And that anyone who makes comments is alerted as well?

Since Jono has so little to do he can spend all week playing bass at the market there might be some chance of him adding this feature in the near future?

I now publish any new or updated material to GitHub (or
BitBucket), which already provides all those features and a few
hundred more.  I use it for publishing documentation and
articles, too.

Example:
http://www.lassosoft.com/tagswap/detail/tz_convert

My Lasso stuff on GitHub:
https://github.com/stevepiercy/knop
https://github.com/stevepiercy/xml_rpc
https://github.com/stevepiercy/lasso9_apache24
https://github.com/stevepiercy/tz_convert

Re: Adding comment alerts

Yeah, but for the type of things normally posted to tagswap (tags /
methods) it's pretty convenient.

For example, I've started to collate some stuff here:
https://github.com/zeroloop/Lasso-9-Improvements — but it's a bit of a pain
to manage. For larger projects ( ds / slapcode / l-debug etc) it's great —
but for small tidbits I'm not convinced.

Re: Adding comment alerts

stevepiercy
Using a klunky web interface to post my tags compared to using
git push is less convenient for me.

 From the consumer standpoint through git and GitHub, it's easy
to be notified of updates and issues, view changes and diffs,
provide comments, or submit your own pull request if you have a
suggestion for improvement to the author.

TagSwap was great when there was no GitHub or BitBucket, but now
it's so last decade.

Personally, I think there are far more important things that LS
staff could be working on given that a feature rich application
already exists.

There would be several ways to react on a competing product that has superior features than your own. You can remove your product from the market or you can improve it. If Lassosoft enhances the comment function it would not only benefit Tagswap, it would improve all the other sections of their website that has a comment feature, Like the reference, language guide, articles etc. I'm sure Steve can come up with a ton of other feature rich services out there that would be so much better to use than publishing documentation on your own web site. I don't know, Google docs, a Markdown service or some other fancy 'this century' technique.
But I think it is worth to remember that Lassosofts website is not just a company site, it's a marketing tool for the product itself, showcasing what you can do with Lasso. If we consider all web based services 'klunky' and something that should be avoided we're shooting ourselves in the foot since Lasso is all about creating web content and interfaces. If the service is outdated then what Lassosoft need to do is improve it, not remove it. I also have to admit that my old age and general lack of competence makes the klunky upload interface of Tagswap so much easier to understand and use than the over complicated and confusing GitHub. I know GitHub is wastly superior and have tons of useful features. But I still have to understand them to use them.
Another thing to keep in mind is that despite services like GitHub and Bitbucket, Tagswap is still actively used. Apparently it has some appeal to Lasso developers. Both as a source for finding stuff and for supplying them. I would venture that it might even have higher usage than Lasso material put in GitHub. Thus, if it's used, why not improve it when you see a need for it to be improved?

Re: Adding comment alerts

stevepiercy
Improvement requires resources which are finite.  I'd prefer
LassoSoft spend its finite resources on this list of items.

http://www.lassosoft.com/Lasso-Roadmap

I am not advocating for the removal of TagSwap, nor did I ever
suggest that.  I am advocating for maintaining the existence of
TagSwap, not expending precious resources toward its perceived
improvement, and that developers use other freely available
resources to supplement TagSwap that have the desired
improvements already built in.  I will continue to use TagSwap
for posting descriptions of my work, while pointing to the
authoritative resources on GitHub.

Another way of looking at it is that by not pushing code to
GitHub and its ilk, you are not exposing Lasso to a broader
audience, thus Lasso misses out on a huge market of technology evaluators.

Every time I go to Python meetups, I say that I started web app
programming using Lasso, and the response is always "What's
Lasso?"  That's pathetic, and I'm tired of repeating myself.  As
a community, we should expand behind the confines of
LassoSoft.com to increase its exposure.  Sean recently nailed
the dilemma Lasso faces with bias from WikiPedia editors.  I
know the struggle that Eric went through to get Lasso recognized
as a language on GitHub, and I think BitBucket still doesn't get it.

If you use SVN, you can use Git.  I wrote plentiful
documentation for how to use Git.  I even made a video
demonstrating how to collaborate with other developers in a team
using Git in Eclipse/LassoLab.

https://github.com/knop-project/knop/tree/master/docs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qmix1cXZt-Y

So pull your head out of LassoSoft.com, get out there, share,
and let the world know about Lasso.  How's that for positive input?

Re: Adding comment alerts

Bil Corry-3
I propose a compromise whereby comments on tagSwap are fed to GitHub, then
people can use GitHub to be alerted when new comments are added to tagSwap.

Re: Adding comment alerts

There's an API for that.  ;)
http://developer.github.com/v3/issues/

But I'd still prefer that LassoSoft focus on the road map items.
