In this blog article, we’ll be focused in on the Analytics API because it’s primarily used for reporting and dashboards.
In this post, I show my favourite library.
AWS Lambda allows us to dramatically lower our costs for running an application. It’s fairly easy to convert an Express.js app into running in the serverless framework.
My favourite library for reading, writing, and manipulating Excel files in Node.JS is ExcelJS. In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to install the library and how to dynamically read an Excel file.
After reading this article, you will understand how to export data from a database or other system using a csv library in Node.js.
CSV stands for common separated values file which means that data can be stored in a tabular format with commas separating each value.
The PDF format is one of the most common file formats for transmitting static information. It’s a really common request for businesses to be able to export a document or data into a really well-formatted PDF file whether it be an invoice or a report.
SOAP is basically an XML based API that existed before the REST API existed. SOAP stands for Simple Object Access Protocol – it’s a mostly legacy protocol that was designed for doing remote api requests in a language independent way.
From time to time unfortunately, we’ll need to call a SOAP API.
Having your application / system produce the right amount and quality of logs is just as important as having the system process the needed data because it helps make debugging easier and allows us to better optimize data.
Logging on AWS lambda can be really costly if it’s not done correctly.
In my everyday life as technology leader (“tech lead”) and full stack developer I run into a lot of problems that need to be solved every day.
TDD is a lot more than vanity metrics like the percentage of code covered by tests. Test Driven Development (TDD) is a development process that consists of the tests being designed and written before most of the code is written.
Excel is a really commonly used spreadsheet program that lots of companies use to transmit data. Finding a really good library that doesn’t require Excel to exist on the server can be really hard.
Developing locally makes a lot more sense than deploying to a dev environment consistently because it helps save time, save some cloud costs, and avoids obvious embarrassment. 🙂
Prettier is a code formatter that can automatically format code when save is pressed. I like using prettier to format my code because it saves me a lot of time and a lot of energy.
I don’t think jQuery is dead at this point, but it’s growth seems to be slowing.
In this article, we talk about how to map over a NodeList.
Deleting node_modules on Windows 7 and Windows 10 can be a frustrating experience if you try to do it from Windows Explorer or Command-Line because the file path names tend to get really long.
Up until recently, if you were building websites you pretty much always used jQuery. jQuery really simplified working with the browser document object model (DOM) and doing really custom animations.
In this blog post, we go through how to jQuery with the Lightning Locker Service turned on.
