Idiomatic code

Idiomatic code

Idiomatic refers to the most common way to write something in a language. Writing idiomatic code means following the conventions of the language, and solving problems the way they are meant to be solved in that language, not by porting programming patterns from other languages.

Idioms vary widely across languages.

Benefits of idiomatic code

Benefits of idiomatic code

Learning and internalizing the idioms of a language greatly improves your reading abilities. You are able to focus on understanding what the code does instead of wondering why the code is written in an awkward way.

Projects that use idiomatic code benefit from:

  • Higher maintainability - Idiomatic code is clear, maintainable, and bug-free
  • Faster code reading & Lower cognitive load - People are no longer stopping at every line, trying to figure out what it does, while struggling to keep in mind what came before
  • Faster debugging - It's easier to spot bugs in idiomatic code

Use the standard library

Use the standard library

Writing idiomatic code implies relying on the standard library to solve problems, and not reimplementing functionality that is already maintained by core developers.

This has two main benefits:

  1. Others will find it easier to read and maintain your code because you use packages familiar to them
  2. You save time by not having to implement functionality from scratch

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
