- the self thing in class methods is a little funky but it's not bothering me at all.
- the ternary expressions I've started to really like. ie: x = 'foo' if some_condition else 'bar' beats x = some_condition ? 'foo' : 'bar' hands down for readability
- the significant indenting thing is okay. It took a little adjustment, but yeah whatever. a shift width of two isn't enough for me though. four is fine.
- stuff like str(some_object), len(some_object), int(some_object) versus some_object.to_s, some_object.length, some_object.to_i, I can stomach, but it feels like a backwards step
- it took me ages to figure out how to display local time. it seems over-complicated.
- http://docs.python.org/lib/lib.html seems less helpful that http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/ (but it could just be I'm more accustomed to it)
- Can python do stuff like this? Maybe it can. (I'm a noob, bigtime).
// do something cool
I just read that and it sounds a little like I'm bitching. What I'm trying to say here is that python is alright. But also, that I like ruby a lot. Did that come across..?
