Still moving slowly. I think it is due to me being tired.

I managed to get the #angular set up with the user interface. Whenever I start something in #angular my heart rate goes a little faster. I really need to set some time aside to learn it, once and for all.

I am now busy with the client-side logic. My hopes is to have most of the app finished by 6:00.

I can always just go sit at the event to fix the crucial things, the droplet is linked to the master branch, so I can theoretically just push a commit up and the site is updated.

Ah well, let’s get back to it. Back in two hours.

(Side note: Logging my dev goals on a two hour interval is definitely helping with productivity, loving #littlelogs for this in the future!)

I’m getting confused between #node and #angular now. I want to setup bcrypt but I don’t know what the dependencies are, if any.

To setup a basic site with user authentication in a node project I used bcryptjs, body-parser, connect-flash, cookie-parser, ejs, express, express-session, express-validator, morgan, multer and path. The instructor never explained what any of these were for, as usual.

Managed to get a CRM with dashboards to staging inside a week, running on 0 sleep and 4-5 coffees. Certainly much faster with #rails and #angular than I was last year, but also thank god for Postgres JSON support.

Sorry it’s been a little while, friends! For the last week I’ve been working on #kiomo doing:

  • finishing the nested / grouped views of #estimate line items
  • tracking down a bug in #angular-ui-tree which was fixed months ago but for some reason isn’t in the distribution last month (sigh)
  • provisioning an alpha hosting environment (which has meant wrestling with the usual scattering of #azure issues)
  • miscellaneous other bug fixes in my code

Things have eased off just a little here with work, as I am down to my last 3 weeks on Koh Lanta - I’ve hired a scooter for two weeks and am checking out the island before I go.

I kept #refactoring my project code today. I made the choice in the past to follow the #johnpapa style guide that encourages keeping a nested hierarchy of modules with views, controllers and services folders for each module. But as I have turned my backend engine to #loopback, I already questioned myself a few times about the need of nested files/modules hierarchy since I kept all my services with the all-in-one generated #angular #loopback services file. For now I will keep this structure and see if it becomes boring with time.

I was in one of those ‘I want to do something but everything is boring’ moods today. Tried to finish the last #angular project, switched to Settlers, went to Bunnings, did some gardening, went for a walk, started a new #node project and only made it as far as creating a db, then switched back to Settlers.

As least the garden has benefitted from two new strawberry plants and a new tomato plant.

One thing I think it’s cool to note when looking back at my logs on #elm, #mithril, or even #android, is that regardless of whether you’re new to coding or have been doing it for years — we all struggle. Especially when picking up something new. Everyone misunderstands things, and hits brick walls, and makes mistakes, and writes really terrible code. My logs on #elm could be written by an absolute beginner, or I could run into the same issues as @kateo learning #angular. I think it’s a very equalising experience. So if you’re a beginner, don’t fret! Keep at it! We’re all in the same boat :)

I’m fed up with the last two #angular projects, so decided to take a break from it and started a Mastering #AngularJS course that I purchased a while ago, I made it though several lessons without any errors which was nice and I’m already 19% through.

To continue I need to register for the themoviedb.org api but they want more personal details than I’d like to share so I’m hoping to use the instructors key instead and have sent the instructor a message in regards to this.

Jumped back to #nodejs in the meantime and I can’t even get the app to run.

{ [Error: Cannot find module '../build/Release/bson'] code: 'MODULE_NOT_FOUND' }
js-bson: Failed to load c++ bson extension, using pure JS version

A quick google indicates that lots of people have had this issue so I’m sure I’ll find an answer soon enough

I’m 91% through my #angular course. I have two meanjs projects to finish off and the remainder of the instagram project, if I can.

I don’t suppose anyone has an instagram api key from earlier than Nov 2015 that i can use?

If i can’t get one then I could mark the project complete but it wouldn’t feel right to say I’ve done everything when I haven’t.

I’m working with #meanjs for the second time in this #angular course, and for the second time I’m having issues. #meanjs has changed quite significantly from the time the course was recorded, which was only a few months ago, so I can’t compare with the instructors files.

When I submit a form absolutely nothing happens. No errors, nothing. I wish there was an error, it would at least give me some direction on where to start looking for the problem.

I’d hoped to complete the final #angular project today but alas issues are holding me up and now I’m bored from getting nowhere so I’m going to sleep on it and hopefully I’ll know the answer tomorrow.

A small victory I suppose - the creators of the #angular course are going to update the instagram project as the recent changes have made it redundant. Disappointed that I couldn’t finish that section though.

Spent this morning and evening installing #Yeoman for the #PubNub chat app. Had some issues with grunt but got it going eventually and now i’m making good progress.

It’s still really hot in my house and I’m finding concentration difficult. I tried to achieve my goal of completing one course by the end of the year but every time I started I couldn’t focus and ended up playing Age of Empires instead.

Started on #angular project 8 - user authentication app using #sails and #foundation. Straight away I’ve run into issues, sigh

I can now add and edit articles in my knowledgebase however delete isn’t working (internal server error) and I can’t figure out why.

After all of that I only completed 1% more of the #angular course

Finished the knowledgebase front end, final task will be to add the ability to add/edit/delete articles.

A review of the courses I’m enrolled in shows that I’m not completing them. My goal is the complete at least one more before the end of the year.

Status:

  • 10 projects in #angular 48%

  • 10 projects in #node 24%

  • rubyonrails 86%
  • iOS8 & #swift - 15 apps 3%
  • complete web developer -14 websites 71%

  • ITIL foundation 12%

  • Projects in #css 100%

This list doesn’t include the other 4 that I haven’t started yet.

#angular project 6 (jobfinder) was annoying me as mean.js has changed significantly from when this course was recorded so i’m skipping the last section and will finish it off later. Moved onto project 7 (knowledgebase).

I don’t know if I’m really slow on the uptake or if the instructor doesn’t explain it well, but I cannot understand when to use upper or lowercase, or when to/not to use plurals

Finally completed #angular project 3. I cheated in the end by copying the json file from the course material. I know the issue was a comma or semicolon somewhere and I hate cheating but it wasn’t worth spending more time on. Moving on to project 4 - “myContacts App”

Continuing with my #angular course. I was so close to finishing project 1 which is a template store, but I’ve run into an error that I can’t work out so that’s put the brakes on progress.

Finished section 1- basic #angular site, and started section 2 - web store. We started by cloning angular seed - no explanation, just do it. And something called bower - don’t worry about that either, just install it. I’ll google them later and teach myself

Found a spare 30 mins so I continued with my #angular course. For some unexplained reason we are now working in Plunker. It would be nice if the teacher said "we're using this because..." instead of me mindlessly following and not understanding.

Yesterday I struggled to get into #node, so I decided to put it on hold and move onto #angular. Started with a basic bootstrap html and immediately missed #jade. Opening and closing tags is super annoying once you've learnt a way that doesn't need them

Took a couple of days off this weekend. Only worthwhile work I did was to start getting familiar with using #angular as the frontend for a #rails app. I created a simple rails app that I have been meaning to build as a side project and am navigating my way through doing all the #frontend interactions in angular.

Racing against time to put the pieces of this angular puzzle together. What I want:

  1. Build out an application core that follows TDD and a use case driven approach. Basically, the app fulfills all requirements without any knowledge of interface, db, or even Angular JS itself.
  2. Connect Angular JS to the core. Needed to learn browserify this morning to make this happen
  3. TDD the angular js part of the application
  4. Specify a workflow that's going to make all this come together. Propose alternates and amendments to existing Grunt scripts etc

Mind is starting to slow down on the intake of knowledge at this point. So keeping handwritten notes as I go along.

Really digging in and ripping apart this old #angular project now. Completely reconfiguring the routing hasn't been fun but it's certainly rewarding.

Converting a whole bunch of old python-mako templates to new shiny angular pages. Actually enjoying dusting this old stuff off and bringing it into the present.

"Use the ngClick directive to call the saveNote() function of the controller when the save button is clicked. Remember to pass the note model to the function." - what? when did we cover that?? stuck again. #Angular
