[Curious/Discussion] Why the 'problem'? #41
The README states:
I would (and am sure many others would also) love to hear more about the issues you had. In the same vein of Pusher's articles on switching from Haskell to Go, would you be willing to elaborate on the issues you encountered?
Today the postgrest is not distributed a binary, need to install Haskell to compile. pREST in its 1.0 version will be binary distributed (cross compiling, run in Windows by example), so you don't need to have anything installed on the server to run.
How old is Haskell and how many developers exist? Go has less years and more developers, if you need to fix a problem in postgrest turn where?
I was about to go raise distributed binaries as an issue on the PostgREST repo, but saw that they do distribute binaries for a number of platforms.
The point about Haskell's developer situation is a good point. As a Haskell dev, I'd just fix it myself -- and I recognize that there are fewer Haskell devs than Go devs.
Thanks for the input!
