Welcome to 2021. For me this will be an exciting year when I embrace ReactJS and Svelte as friends. And, what better way to start with React than NextJS..? In this post, we will see why and how we can get started on NextJS, and a few good learning resources.
Hello everyone! Hope you are all set for the new year. While you are waiting for the Y2020 to end with bated breath, here’s a post to kick start your Vue 3 journey. We will create a Reddit reader using Vue3 and Vite! This post is more useful for someone with basic knowledge of Vue and Vue 2.
It is no secret that I am a fan of Vue and Vuetify / Quasar. While the styling libraries get stuff done real quick, I often do demo projects or throw-away sites that do not need the heavy hitters. While the project development may be quick and all they enjoy is a couple of hours of show-time, I cannot quite afford to show an app without some basic styling.
AdonisJS has been my framework of choice to get stuff done quickly. The framework has taken a turn for the good with more frequent updates to its latest version - v5, which features Typescript, the same trusted MVC framework, and “everything & kitchen sink” approach that is quite effective to easily build apps.
Express is like a dear friend who does not leave your side during happy or sad times in your life. She may not help you reach enlightenment, but she’s there and she’s super supportive. And, that’s all you need many a time. In this post we create a blog with ExpressJS and friends - oh how exciting.
Svelte makes working with apps really simple. It brings the clarity of Vue but adds even more simplicity in the way components are created and used. For one of the demos I just wanted to showcase what the simplicity translates into for a simple website that shows “quote of the day” but also needs to provide a “SPA experience” - completely off the script.
Firestore is a super easy way to configure your backend. Firestore provides a range of services anywhere from a database, user authentication, to using machine learning for many use-cases. One of the many things you do in a typical app is to enable users to store files. While some find it easier to store files in database (huh?
You have coded a beautiful page that has a few buttons, some text, a toolbar, a footer with the mandatory copyright statements, and so on. And now your users want to take the print out of the web page and ask you to include that feature. The first thing that comes to your mind is to just use the browser feature to print any web page (or to save as PDF).
We have previously seen how a div element can be saved to a file. In this post we will see how we can save div tag contents as an image in Vue. How do we print the div? Here are the steps at a high level - Draw contents of div to canvas.
In this post we will see how to create a simple timesheet app using Vue and Vuetify. This is not quite a comprehensive tutorial on Vue or Vuetify, rather a demo of front-end features, see how easy it is to build an usable app, and in general, how modern app development makes the whole process enjoyable.
Tooltips are omnipresent, or rather have to be. While there have been excellent standardisation of user experience since we saw what Bootstrap was capable of, there are days and applications that can throw off users with strange icons, buttons and navigation. Ergo, tooltips. The humble tooltip can provide helpful hints, short messages and guide user on what a particular button, text box or any other element will do before clicking the thingy and causing destruction of a planet.
I started with Golang not too long ago, and I loved the fact that I can create a web application with a couple of lines of code. But, as always frameworks help to take that web application to places. Being a practical person who develops apps for side projects and for a living, I cannot simply overstate this fact.
