Building blocks in programming languages

Level of difficultyMedium
Reading time5 min
Views621

Practically all programming languages are built either on the principle of similarity (to make like this one, only with its own blackjack) or to realize some new concept (modularity, purity of functional calculations, etc.). Or both at the same time.


But in any case, the creator of a new programming language doesn't take his ideas randomly out of thin air. They are still based on his previous experience, obsession with the new concept and other initial settings and constraints.


Is there a minimal set of lexemes, operators, or syntactic constructs that can be used to construct an arbitrary grammar for a modern general-purpose programming language?

How to Bypass reCaptcha in Selenium Automatically with Code Example

Level of difficultyEasy
Reading time4 min
Views1.8K

I based my approach on an English manual that caught my eye just a couple of days ago, and I decided to test it (since it's written by a captcha recognition service that I use, why not - by the way, guys from 2captcha - I accept thanks in the form of green bills, if you're interested))))

I've made some tentative attempts at automation and encountered a frequently arising problem: reCaptcha recognition.

Of course, I understand that there are many guides, manuals, and articles written on this topic, but let's agree - it's interesting to describe one's own experience.

Thus, without getting too lengthy and boring about why Selenium is necessary, how important it is for automation, when it appeared and who invented it, let's get to the crux:

To solve the problem, we'll use a demo page kindly provided by reCaptcha itself - https://recaptcha-demo.appspot.com/recaptcha-v2-checkbox.php:

How sqlalchemy uses greenlet to call an async Python function from a normal function

Reading time5 min
Views2.5K

The Python language has two kind of functions — normal functions that you would use in most cases, and async functions. The latter functions are used when performing network IO in an asynchronous manner. The problem with this division is that async functions can only be called from other async functions. Normal functions, on the other hand, can be called from any functions — however, if you call a normal function that does a blocking operation from an async function, it will block the whole event loop and all your coroutines. These limitations usually mean that when writing an using Python`s asyncio, you can`t use any of the IO libraries that you use when writing a synchronous application, and vice versa, unless a library supports usage both in sync and async applications.

Now, the question is, in case you are developing a large and complex library, that, say, allows users to interact with relational databases, abstracting away (some of) the differences between the SQL syntax and other aspects of these databases, and abstracting away the differences between the drivers for that database, how do you support both sync and async usage of your library without duplicating the code of your library? The way sqlalchemy is organized is that regardless of what database and driver for it you are using, you will be calling functions and methods related to Engine, Connection, etc classes, which will do some general work independent of database, then apply the logic specific to your database and finally, call the functions of your database driver to actually communicate with the database. If you are using Python`s asyncio, the database driver will expose async functions and methods, but the rest of the library that is driver‑independent would ideally remain the same. However, the issue is that that you can`t call the async functions of the driver from the normal functions of the core of the library.

Detection of meterpreter sessions in Windows OS

Introduction

Hello Habr! This is a translation of my first article, which was born due to the fact that I once played with the types of meterpreter payload from the Metasploit Framework and decided to find a way to detect it in the Windows OS family.

Analysis

I will try to present everything in an accessible and compact way without delving into all the work. To begin with, I decided to create the nth number of useful loads (windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp, shell/bind_tcp, shell_hidden_bind_tcp, vncinject/reverse_tcp, cmd/windows/reverse_powershell) to analyze what will happen in the system after their injection.

How to access real-time smart contract data from Python code (using Lido contract as an example)

Let’s imagine you need access to the real-time data of some smart contracts on Ethereum (or Polygon, BSC, etc.) like Uniswap or even PEPE coin to analyze its data using the standard data scientist/analyst tools: Python, Pandas, Matplotlib, etc. In this tutorial, I’ll show you more sophisticated data access tools that are more like a surgical scalpel (The Graph subgraphs) than a well-known Swiss knife (RPC node access) or hammer (ready-to-use APIs). I hope my metaphors don’t scare you ?.

Your own Duolingo without overengineering

Reading time14 min
Views1.4K

Hi, my name is Mikhail Emelyanov, I’m a Python programmer and I would like to show you my pet project — Flywheel, a micro-platform for learning foreign languages, a mixture of Duolingo and Anki, an application that can teach you to properly write in Spanish (or any other language you’re studying). Flywheel’s source code is available on GitHub.


Flywheel


As you may know, generalized knowledge of a foreign language can be broken down into four relatively independent components: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Unfortunately, training one of these abilities has no direct effect on the other components, so, for example, by developing our reading skills, the effect on our writing skills is quite indirect. Flywheel is a ‘sharpener’ specifically for written Spanish.


If you’ve ever used Duolingo, you should have some idea of the format in which you’ll be studying. The formula is simple: here’s a phrase, translate it into the other language; the app will remember the last time you translated a phrase and how successful you were at it; and depending on the accuracy of your answer, it will determine when you should do the same phrase again. In my opinion, Duolingo and its approach are brilliant. However… There are certain aspects that somewhat spoil the learning experience, and Flywheel was specifically designed to address them.

Blinking into Morse code

Level of difficultyEasy
Reading time10 min
Views2K

Explaining main algorithm.

For a while I’ve been thinking of writing a scientific article. I wanted it to have certain utility.

Morse code is binary: it takes only two values – either dot (short) or hyphen (long). I figured out that short (s) can stand for two-eye blinking whilst long (l) can indicate left-eye blinking. Another question emerged: how to understand when does one-symbol recording stop?

Empty space between two symbols can be presented by right-eye blinking – r. If I input singly symbol of short (dot) and long (hyphen), I will blink my right eye once to indicate the space between two symbols.

To separate independent words, one has to blink her right eye twice and get rr.

Hence, I have collected an ordered set of symbols – r, l, s, - that can be converted into a full-fledged text. Once I accomplish the transformation, I get an answer.

The Collatz conjecture is the greatest math trick of all time

On the Internet and in non-fiction literature you can often find various mathematical tricks. The Collatz conjecture leaves all such tricks behind. At first glance, it may seem like some kind of a trick with a catch. However, there is no catch. You think of a number and repeat one of two arithmetic operations for it several times. Surprisingly, the result of these actions will always be the same. Or, may be not always?

Writing The Matrix in Python

Reading time6 min
Views3.7K

Programming textbooks usually do not indulge us with variety of examples. In most manuals, exercises are similar to each other and not particularly interesting: create another address book, draw a circle using turtle, develop a website for a store selling some kind of "necessary" advertising nonsense. Too far from the authentic imitation of "The Matrix". Although…

How about taking over the control and starting to invent exercises yourself?

Would you like to write your own personal little "Matrix"? Of course, not the one with skyscrapers, stylish phones of the time, and the ubiquitous invincible Agent Smiths. We will need a couple of more months of learning for that. But any beginner programmer can write a model of the cult splash screensaver with the green streams of digits flowing down the screen. Let's try to creat it in the "great and mighty" Python.
