( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Yea what I've been trying to get across in this thread but apparently failing to do so is that it's a waste of time to write tests for a POC (unless you have like, a wrapper around a low level HTTP client that you have say, a GET and POST method, there's nothing wrong with writing simple tests for that since that's not going to change) until after you've gone through enough review iterations to confirm with all involved that everything looks good. If something comes up after that, I think it's a scope change and an entirely different can of worms.

For personal projects I feel like a hard spec outside of a braindump of what you want to do really hinders you even more. Unless you have a good deal of experience in the domain you're working in I feel like you end up "prematurely optimizing" your API ergonomics because you've written out a bunch of API endpoint/method definitions without letting a workflow emerge.

Long story short, make it work, make it clean, make it fast.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
