Boot.jl – An attempt at loading folders

package

#1

Wrote a package after thinking about Packages, modules, and files.

The main goal was:

  • to ease the burden of loading files
  • with robust recursive includes over package subdirectories


Example from Readme

Transforms:

module Foo

  include("int.jl")
  include("float.jl")

  include("ops/plus.jl")
  include("ops/minus.jl")
  include("ops/times.jl")
  include("ops/divide.jl")

  include("ops/calc/int.jl")
  include("ops/calc/diff.jl")

end

Into:

module Foo

  using Boot

  include_folder(Foo, @__FILE__)

end

What is the preferred way to manage multiple files?

This also seems to take significantly longer time than manual includes. Perhaps this is because the functions are parsed, and instantiated multiple times, as shown by the overwrite warnings.

There is currently no reliable way to delete methods in Julia.

I don’t really see what problem this package is trying to solve?

Having a package that rewrite your sources to insert the necessary includes seems like a better approach instead of doing it dynamically every time the package is loaded.


#3

Although one of the things that i love about Julia is that I don’t need to run any separate scripts that pre-process my code…


#4

The reason you got an error is because you didn’t remove all your include statements.


#5

Cheers, removing the extra include statement makes it load properly. I’m still seeing a 40% extra precompilation time and a ~300% load time after precompilation:

I also have some code that runs at “compile time”, i.e. when the file is included, to do some caching during precompilation. Will this caching run multiple times using this package?

Furthermore, it seems that if you have a syntax error in your file, or more precisely, if loading the file throws in any way, the file will just be ignored.


#6

Just reimplemented the core of Boot.jl from scratch.

It now uses Julia’s compiler to load every file dynamically. (and works pretty well on your project)

// at this point, it uses eval for loading all the parts, so file line information is currently lost


additionally, the compiler was only really tested on your code and my test suite.

therefore it will take some testing on other projects before it’s production ready.

(see this file to get a gist of what probably will explode on new projects)

Hi @kristoffer.carlsson, can you try the master branch on Tensors.jl and JuAFEM.jl again?

I think I got it working. You might need to clear the precompiled cache first though:

map(rm, Base.find_all_in_cache_path(:Tensors))
map(rm, Base.find_all_in_cache_path(:JuAFEM))

// also, thanks to @vchuravy for that clear cache command!


#10

Wrote up a quick gist with performance changes:


Main conclusion was that:

  • Using Boot.jl led to ~40% slower (initial) compilation times for both packages
  • But did not alter performance in either package for subsequent reloads

// further, each package was only ~25% slower when adjusting for the compile time of Boot.jl itself

However, this did not attempt to use Boot.jl style loading for both JuAFEM and (its REQUIRE'd) Tensors at the same time. (which would likely change the results)
