Non-Blocking ReadAll function for Humble
// ReadAll expects a pointer to a slice of poitners to some concrete type
// which implements Model (e.g., *[]*Todo). GetAll will send a GET request to
// a RESTful server and scan the results into models. It expects a json array
// of json objects from the server, where each object represents a single Model
// of some concrete type. It will use the RootURL() method of the models to
// figure out which url to send the GET request to.
func ReadAll(models interface{}) <-chan error {
// We expect some pointer to a slice of models. Like *[]Todo
// First Elem() givew us []Todo
// Second Elem() gives us Todo

albrow / IpToDecimal.js
Last active March 3, 2021 14:46
A short javascript function to convert an IP address in dotted decimal notation to a regular decimal. This is useful for IP address geolocation lookups. Supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
// convert the ip address to a decimal
// assumes dotted decimal format for input
function convertIpToDecimal(ip) {
// a not-perfect regex for checking a valid ip address
// It checks for (1) 4 numbers between 0 and 3 digits each separated by dots (IPv4)
// or (2) 6 numbers between 0 and 3 digits each separated by dots (IPv6)
var ipAddressRegEx = /^(\d{0,3}\.){3}.(\d{0,3})$|^(\d{0,3}\.){5}.(\d{0,3})$/;
var valid = ipAddressRegEx.test(ip);
if (!valid) {
return false;
