programmers are always posting like “worked on tracking down an issue with a Flurble deployment for twelve hours. the problem wasn’t in Flurble at all - it was in the Gumbies install. It turns out if you install Gumbies 3.0 over Gumbies 2.7 and don’t do a cache flush on all the client spiders they’ll get stuck in the crystal maze.” then you look up Gumbies and the site is one of those scroll scroll scroll types with one sentence per page, like

“GUMBIES is a lean, expressive sharding sandcube for testing and deploying large scale Woodchips playgrounds.

GUMBIES automates and streamlines away watersliding phases, meaning your team can get right to the chipping.

See why Microsoft, OpenAl and Bloingo have embraced GUMBIES in their Woodchips workflows.”

and you get to the bottom and you’re like I want this I guess but I still don’t know what it is

Maybe there wouldn’t be as many issues with the crystal maze if GUMBIES POSTED DOCUMENTATION. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU WORK YEARS ON A STABLE GUMBIES CLIENT SPIDER API AND NOT WRITE A LINE OF DOCUMENTATION DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO NOT USE YOUR SOFTWARE???


jv (verification badge × 7)

Oh and WHY THE FUCK THE OFFICIALLY RECOMMENDED NPM PACKAGE FOR GUMBIES HAVE BEEN IN VERSION 0.1.1 FOR SEVEN YEARS AND SEEMS TO BE DEVELOPED BY “powerwolf112”, who hasn’t answered a single message in GitHub since 2021???

For all the bells in hell, there are massive websites that are using this amateur crap to defrumbulate their typescript decorators!

found this thread while trying to debug an issue just checking if anyone knows whether GUMBIES is backward compatible with Pea Gravel playground deployments or if its exclusive to Woodchips thanks in advance

      Is the fediverse starting to get rolled into the mainstream content farm. Might help our cause and get more people on the bandwagon.

        Turns out the content holds the value, and the hosting platform is a mostly replaceable and interchangeable delivery mechanism. Who would’ve thunk?

      I had no idea that Tumblr was active again? I thought all Tumblr posts from the past 5 years were just recycled old stuff.

    I won’t lie, but content like this is what I love on programmerhumor.

    Also just use the (inferior) open source version of GUMBIES called GRUMBOSS. It’s way better!

    I experienced a new hell today

    The whole of the documentation was in video format and you had to accept all cookies to play the videos

    At least with GUMBIES not having documentation there is a wide thread of people asking questions on third party sites

      This was legitimately part of the reason I went with Laminas instead of Laravel for a project. I really don’t want critical documentation to be in video form.

        I fully agree with you. However, I just had an interesting thought. Could someone use chatgpt to transcribe the video’s audio to text and plop it into a wiki?

          Any documentation videos that comply with the accessibility requirements in many jurisdictions will have subtitles. Just extract the subtitles from the video.

      I’m still just trying to figure out if GUMBIES is compatible with my ReverMax Turbo Encabulator model XYZZY in sinusoidal repleneration mode.

          A lot of them were shifted 1 second into the future following the problems with the cracked frampton valve on a popular model of felindrical phase felcher.

    Every time I want to do something, I have a look around the baffling ecosystem of frameworks and end up writing it from scratch because it’s easier than wading through the bullshit.

      Oh honey, just because it’s not real doesn’t mean it can’t hurt you. Just look up Roko’s basilisk as an example.

        The ego and audacity to think an AI will simulate you in eternal torment when that would use up precious resources it could be spending on making paperclips.

    The GUMBIES page being one sentence per scroll scroll scroll is right on point for a fuckload of projects. Even the text feels like it was copy pasted from a real project

      And that one line is something like “fixed issue where the nuclear bombs don’t go off anymore”, no mention as to how or why that was even a problem or how they fixed it.

      My wife is in accounting, and I always thought they have too many meaningless jargons.

      Now I know how I sound when I talk to her…

      There are innumerable examples.

      My typical attitude is “I was fine without “latest fad” until now, I’ll still be fine now that I still know nothing about it”. And I forget about the whole thing. It’ll probably vanish fifteen months later anyway.

      As an aside, who even makes those caricatural, utterly content free websites, and then pats themselves on the back thinking that’s a job well done? They’ve obviously put some amount of work into those things. Is the point to make it seem like it’s a cool super secret society or what?

        Think like systemd is a service manager, but scale it to multiple systems (and all the kafkaesqe issues that comes with). Its super powerful because of it, supporting high availability across dataceneters and even regions with some configs of complex apps, but that’s just super niche for most of us.

        I think it empowers the deployment of, um scalability, of the, *waves arounds* modular thingies… or something. In a virtual way.

      Is the joke not on the problem of cute names? K8s doesn’t seem to do that at all. I also checked the homepage itself, and it seemed OK.

      What am I missing?
