Hm? Damn I like Javascript!

The bad world has me back. Im working as a programmer. So this is the first blog since more then 2 years. Job is ok, as far as a job (paid work) could be, but I can use my beloved Ruby language beides all this other languages one has to use. Cause it’s the first time I really have to do with users ;-)) and the user interface is web based, it’s the first time I’m involved with browser incompatibilities. Oh my god, what a mess. Thank God, there is jQuery. jQuery is a Javascript framework, that handles all this mess.

So to understand what is happening, I decided to take a deeper look at Javascript. And … dududu … I was surprised. Nice language! Simple, every thing is an object, prototypes istead of classes, closures, duck typing … and compared to Ruby, fast! (so for me it feels even very fast) Ok, Ruby is still the language of choice to solve problems, Ruby is how I think, but solved problems can be brought to the world using Javascript. And whats so good about it, is that there is a real fast gui included: firefox, chrome, ie, opera, safari … and the calculations are done on the users devices (classical copmuters, pads, mobiles, game consoles, refrigerators and so on …) Maybe, if all these browser guys had to implement Ruby as the language of web browsers, it would now be the real killer language.

Die Liste (German)

Hab vor kurzem Ecos “Die unendliche Liste” gelesen. Abgesehen davon, dass es Eco ein schönes Leben sichert, war es doch inspirierend.

Scales as tabulatures for guitarists

All scales in every key upto 6 #/b

This is work in progress, so be patient. Navigation is still stupid and I will give more information soon (i.e. something very usefull is still missing: What chords are in the scales.) And all this stuff is generated form the Lucytunes scales database, so there are still some things in the base I can not handle. Some pages will not be generated correctly, but very few! (of the > 30.000 tabs ;-)

How I did the scales pics

With Ruby and lilypond

A Great Source of Inspiration

Thanks to Lucytune where I found the Data of the 2338 theoretically possible scales with Base C. I generated the pngs with Lilypond

You will have a lot of fun, especially if you play around with the Ragas. You can click on the pngs to get the data.
