Although the game 2048 is not a hot stuff like it used to be several years ago, I am still playing it once in a while. And now I thought that maybe I could try to implement it by myself just to do something else other than web development.
In a project, there usually are a lot of tests. I am not going to discuss how much testing is enough because it depends on each project. What I am going to do in this blog post is to write down what I did for my work project to split a huge mocha test suite into smaller suites and run them in parallel. The end result is a testing process that used to take 7 minutes, now takes around 3 minutes. And the more test suites I run in parallel the faster it becomes.
In the previous part, I implemented a simple pub/sub server to push messages to the client side. In this part, I am going to implement the user interface using Vue
In the previous part, I added the basic authentication and authorization to the API service. In this part, I am going to implement the pub/sub messaging service using Faye and integrate it with the API service.
In my current project, I need to grab data from youtube gaming pages. I have done similar thing previously, but with the normal youtube channel pages. The new gaming pages are rendered in a completely different way. It took me some digging around the source code to finally be able to figure out a way to extract data. This blog post summarizes what I have done to get the data out of a youtube gaming channel page.
This is the second and final part of “Let’s build an API framework”. In the previous part, I wrote about the general design and requirements for the API framework that I am going to build. In this part, I am going to implement it. The actual implementation might be slightly different from the design but the ideas stay the same.
Yes… you read that right, I am still using
gulp. Recently, with all the hype and the fact that most of the people I know are switching to npm scripts,
gulpseems to be something in the distant past. But, here I am, still using
gulpor similar task manager libraries, you can share the tasks between your projects. Or you can even have a set of tasks that you usually use in your side projects in one git repository and re-use them every time you have some brilliant ideas and want to roll a new side project (and quickly abandon it like I often do).
Today, I am going to take a break from the simple chat app series because I want to build something else for a change. During my work, I usually have to work with APIs a lot from integrating with existing APIs to building a new one for internal or external uses. I have tried a lot of different frameworks and even built one for my master’s thesis.
Previously, I had the basic API server up and running. In this part I am going to continue with the authentication and authorization (via Github). The purpose is to have a simple login system where the users need to log in (via Github) before they can send messages.
I have been keeping my eyes on Vuejs for quite some time, and I finally decided to build something with it. I am going to build a simple chat web app using Faye, Express and Vue. I have been using Faye and Express for several years, Vue is the new guy here.
