As build processes became more complex it…
Think of functions like a wizard has spells. Whenever a wizard wants to conjure some creature he looks in his book of spells and casts a spell. Another analogy is a Chef with their book of recipes.
Whether you are a chef or a wizard you must commit write down your spell/recipe before you can use…
People already love or are at least pretty familiar with the React Syntax, but the latter benefit of compiling to standard JS could be a nice addition to React, enter SolidJS.
SolidJS is a frontend UI framework whose syntax…
Virtual environments have always been one of those areas of constant discovery as I’ve learned python. I’ve been writing on articles what, how, and why of Virtual Environments and you can find those articles here:
While all of these work great for isolating dependencies and outputting dependencies to a requirements.txt allow use to track dependencies one piece is still missing, deterministic dependency resolution.
When working with NodeJS or Yarn you may notice a .lock file that gets generated when installing libraries, ever wondered what it did? The lock file…
If you’ve ever used Ruby on Rails it provides many awesome benefits with its command-line interface:
I really do enjoy these tools in rails, but I also really enjoy the flexibility and simplicity of Express when paired with a Mongo Database. So I took it upon myself to create an express-based framework that has a rails like feel and level of productivity. Enter, Merced-Express.
The best way to demonstrate is just to guide you in creating…
This is not a guide on how to use express and mongo, but a useful reference especially for those starting to learn these technologies. This guide will serve as documentation of the basics of all the main functions and patterns in these libraries.
npm install express
const express = require("express")
The express function returns a new application object. The application object has several different functions.
// import express
const express = require("express")// create an application object
const app = express()…
My Original Article on Virtual Environments
In my previous article, I talked about two ways to create Python virtual environments using mkvirtualenv and pyenv. What I wasn’t aware of at the time is that in Python 3.3 and above a native ability to create a virtual environment was added to python.
You may need to write python3…

Often times when making a RESTFul API with Django it can seem like… “how would this work in?”
Django has a lot of great aspects to it:
This is all great but when making a microservice or RESTFul API Django can seem a bit clunky (cause its design seems to really be…
One thing that you always have to be careful in programming is that collections (Arrays, Objects, Maps, Sets, etc.) aren’t primitive values so variables that hold them don’t hold the data but a reference to where the data is located in memory. This creates a syntactical annoyance.
const myArray = [1, 2, 3, 4]
// This line doesn't duplicate the array but creates another variable referring to the same array
const myArray2 = myArray
The reason this is an issue is cause it means modifying the myArray2 modifies the…
