I swear I'm going to kill someone if I ever see another "create REST API with Express in 10 minutes" tutorial.4
TL;DR, I do node.js now.
There's much I was working on the past weeks. First of all some of you may know I don't work in IT and therefore always am learning how to make things easier in my workspace with tech. And my boss once told me how annoyed he is converting stuff to PDF for easier sending via mail.
Then I started to build PDF converter with
PHP and the Laravel framework. My first steps into it succeeded and I could even deploy my Pdf-wizard website, but everything feels like a hustle and making this application bigger don't really seems like a enjoyable task for me.
I tried the same stuff with Node.js then. It was damn good. It was simple, because there are plenty of packages wich do this tasks on NPM. Afterwards I spent some time on doing research and ended up learning Express Framework.
This brought new inspiration to me and I wanted to share this with you guys.1
So, I was getting started with express middlewares and installed Postman. I saw this. I literally cracked up laughing so hard at this.7
Today was the first time I was able to develop a full stack by my self!!!!
(I mean not by myself, StackOverflow was my Bible)
It's a small project with three modules , and while I've worked front end, back end and machine learning separately, I used to develop on a single component.
Today I built all the components on my own.
The hardest part was linking the nodejs file with the python script. Which seemed easy at first but then I needed to go through the documentation to understand the working behind the scenes.
Just looking how to deploy it now
This is a victory rant.
While it is not something big I feel so proud of myself 🥰1
Fucking hate my job 😡
I joined as nodejs dev at a mnc 3months ago involved in banking software in which i dont have any domain knowledge.. first 10 days I was told to go through fucking udemy nodejs and graphql tutorial (wtf) which i already have experience with before joining.. after that my reporting manager gives me task to resolve fields and gave me shitty jira story link to read.. that shit story link had no explanation about the fields and what the database it is, then she says to use some shitty sdk which is built internally by shiity devloper which had no documentation and have to follow other module which was again written by that sr. Dev... They hav fucked up the graphql and nodejs and entire stack and also till date no one has ever given any explanation about the domain and the fields and database schema.. this manager refuses to share knowledge about the domain now how the fuck i resolve the graphql schema which was again written by non technical b.a.. all they have used is latest technology in a shitty way with no standards to to follow .. no dataloading no caching no batching.. use shitty sdk which does not give access to dbconn and fucking tightly coupling expressjs which when i start consumes crazy 400Mb of memory .. these fucking seniors devs + the fucking b.a having 12+. Yrs exp each have fucked the entire codebase... Each day killing my passion for app development.. fuckkk ... Dunno what to do now5
Spent 4 hours trying to figure out why my expressjs application wasn't working in my environment but DevOps loads it just fine. Turns out there's a difference between ^ and ~ on dependency version requirements. I was loading latest versions of nunjucks and NodeJs instead of stable.
What is life.3
From writing back-end with expressJS to find out how mountain goat climbs near vertical peaks.
My productivity over this weekend is not looking good so far.
I always had this mentality that I shouldn’t rely on a certain library or framework for my entire project because what if one day they stop supporting it. (Yeah I’m talking to u vuetify) That’s why I came up with this code structure that for everything that I wanna do I have a ‘driver’ library all coded by myself that interacts with that third party framework or library so if they stop supporting it I could just change a couple of lines of code in my driver file and my codebase should be working again. But I feel like this ‘driver’ approach is not the most efficient way of going in terms of memory usage. Do you guys think I should keep it simple and directly use those libraries or this is actually not a bad approach.7
Hey guys...Hope ur all doing well ...Last year I learnt Nodejs and Express and developed a project using it..But never deployed it..Well since this weekend I got lot of free time ..So I deployed it..Hope you guys like it . Its not much ..Just wanted to learn some concept of Nodejs...https://github.com/imshubhamsingh/...
The MEAN Stack with Firebase connected to Angular instead of an ExpressJS Server and without ExpressJS and MongoDB. -3
Dev: Now that I finally know PHP and JS it must be really easy to find a good framework and use to build my beautiful website.
The options are limited: AngularJS, ReactJS, Ember, ActivateJS, BackboneJS, ExpressJS, Laravel, RactiveJS, Node.JS, Meteor, Knockout, Symphony, Codeignitor
And yes, you thought if you don't like AngularJS you can easily switch to ReactJS. But guess what, every framework will use their own scripting languages like Jade, Blade, Typescript making it learning something new extremely smooth.
The documentation will be part of another rant3
Im new to devRant and i’m just looking if i could get any tips, example projects i could do to fill my portfolio? Im trying to sharpen my skills in web dev (both back & front + React)4
Can someone help me to get some good practices with expressjs/sequelize combinations?
I managed to find how to not have all the models in the same js page and how to organize the routing but when I look the time it took me to find, I would like to don't have to search now 😂
Currently working on my own Express App with CSurf for csrf validation.
Works great but one problem...
HOW THE FUCK SHOULD A POST REQUEST COMING FROM JAVA GET THE FUCKING TOKEN.
Should I made my RESTApi without csrf protection?
I am crying right now...32
When gulp build (expressjs + browsersync + browserify + uglify + gzip + gulp-zip + gulp-tar) perfectly compiles your code, minify and concat all js, gzipped them, minify images, package the files into a .zip and .tar... and refresh your browser 😍
you begin to have faith that its gona be a nice day ahead
I have implemented RESTful API using expressJS, and another React app which will use the API's to fetch data.
I'm getting a problem of Allow-Origin Header.
what's the proper way of calling a API ?
do I use a CORS middleware and allow all origin ('*') and use Api-key as way of check authorization to prevent mis-use. ?
any other tricks ?2
Where should i go to get started with some sort of testing for my expressjs apps ?
I'm a complete testing noob1
What the differences in performance between Django REST, expressjs, spring boot and Flask. What of these frameworks recommend for an API for quickly development and hosting with a $5 -$10 droplet.3
So been doing a freelance project for the past week, small backend API with a front-end, thought I'll give react.js a shot and actually learn it (know a bit of the basics) so using MERN including tailwindcss.
Built the API in a few days, quick and easy. Down to react, not going to lie. Once you dive into it, it's really nice to use. Just tackled a contact form and a few dynamic pages using props, state etc today. Now onto the rest of the site including the the Dashboard to CRUD records.
Still have a lot to learn. But given what I've learned so far. Don't see it taking too much longer.
Famous last words though 😅
I am creating a web api and I am stuck between using asp.net core 2.1 or nodejs' expressjs.
What is your take on this?
take this mind:
this service will also be responsible for processing transactions.7
Hey guys, can i learn websocket.io with learning nodejs and expressjs because i see most of people use nodejs in oder to work with websocket.io.and i want to use websocket.io with php not nodejs2
So I've been tackling the Multer package with express and react, Christ what a nightmare so far. I can't get anything to work.
- Images as array string in mongoDB check
- enctype on the form, check
- state for the field set to an array, check
- type file check
- express configuration based on the Multer docs check
Everything as far as I can tell is as it should be, yet nothing gets saved.
How would I create user-profiles and user logins for my ReactJS app and Heroku? I've never done it before and not sure if ExpressJS is enough or even how to approach it.5
People not using FaaS (like aws lambda or azure functions ) to build chat bots (facebook, slack) but using express based (or any webserver based) application deserves a place in hell.
Can't think why would you use expressJS based app for chat bot. Especially with event emitter shit. At least for Lucifers sake document which event triggers what. Please.
Firebase is a fucking piece of dog shit.
Testing is so bad and complicated to set up, I've spent two days trying to write ONE fucking simple test with an auth middleware via expressjs. Why firebase doesn't mock my dung, you pieces of shit. Even the documentation is all spread out, it's difficult and terrible to follow. I would rather build my own backend because of all the workarounds I have to make because of your limited SHIT product. Even the type libraries are shit, import Timestamp? NOPE. YOU HAVE TO IMPORT FIREBASE TO IMPORT A TIMESTAMP. Learn to define types, shitty google devs. You all suck, thanks for making shitty clients sdk's.
I hope this piece of shit gets deprecated and my clients stops using it.4
I am using MERN to develop a poll app. I have 6 collections in my database. I have an API for each collection, 4 of those API returns the data whereas the other 2 return 'undefined'. What is the issue I am facing? Is MongoDB not allowing me to use more than 4 collections?6
Loopback 4 really is pulling me out of the expressjs shithole... It really feels like I'm avoiding a lot of tedious work.
"B-b-bbut you have to use typescript and its a slower"
I've preferred typescript ever since angular 2 came out, and the 'slower' comment is invalidated by the fact that, when working on projects that are distributed between multiple devs, are marked by silent errors and serialization issues, and can change datasource types between customers, then the benefits of typescript and loopback's CLI far outweigh any potential slowdowns that may be caused. If you can find me an alternative that does this better, please let me know.1
