# Converts a mysqldump file into a Sqlite 3 compatible file. It also extracts the MySQL `KEY xxxxx` from the
# CREATE block and create them in separate commands _after_ all the INSERTs.
# Awk is choosen because it's fast and portable. You can use gawk, original awk or even the lightning fast mawk.
# The mysqldump file is traversed only once.
# Usage: $ ./mysql2sqlite mysqldump-opts db-name | sqlite3 database.sqlite
# Example: $ ./mysql2sqlite --no-data -u root -pMySecretPassWord myDbase | sqlite3 database.sqlite

###The Issue With Forever Forever is great for running node services, with a minor setback: the word "forever" doesn't apply to system reboots.

###The solution, run node apps as a system service logged in as root

vim /etc/init/node-app.conf

##Example Task: Make 2 parallel (simultaneous) async calls, then one async call when they've resolved##

##The Good Way: Promises##

//with bluebird library
var parallelCalls = [
  getUrl('/api/profile'),
  getUrl('/api/accounts')
];
//spread is like .then(), except it apply()s the array of responses as individual arguments

##The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly Ways of handling Async Operations With Javascript## #####Callbacks < Promises < Generators#####


###An Example: 5 in-sequence Async Operations### (also see parallel-sequence example: https://gist.github.com/willrstern/af3a3308fc5864cf48f8)
###The Ugly Way: Callbacks### After each function takes place, handle any errors & do the next thing - It's easy to walk through the code and understand what's going on...but it's ugly as sin
