Global Search has become ubiquitous in web applications. Typical functionalities of the global search are :
From an end-user perspective, global search would be something like the following:
REST API is the de facto standard for the Web Application (client) to communicate with Backend Application (server).
REST API popularity increased due to its simplicity compared to well-established SOAP based Web services. GraphQL, which has clear specification and good community support, is currently playing second fiddle. “Sooner” the king RPC will be back 😃
Web Applications will need one or more of the following API client patterns. I will be using Axios and JS Promise for the demo
For demo, let’s use…
Caching strategies have to be chosen based on the kind of content, the change frequency, and user experience/expectation related to the transaction completed.
The benefits of caching any data should be rated based on the following criteria
GitHub stars are tokens of appreciation or an indication of interest. Some consider GitHub stars as mere bookmarks (or bots entry) to which, I would disagree.
Learning a new language cannot be a…
Documentation is the most needed deliverable for any product or project. Sometimes, documentation is the deciding factor while choosing between two equally good frameworks/libraries in the open-source community.
Markdown played a major role in encouraging developers to do quick documentation without leaving their IDE. Importantly, Markdown fits well into the Git/source code control.
A new kind of documentation has started, which provides an interactive playground. Developers can explore the features of the product/components and can copy the code snippet. For example, check the following Vuetify component page
Storybook allows documenting your component using Markdown and JSX (MDX). …
Web application development involves a lot of activities such as:
In the whole lifecycle of web application development, there are many skillsets involved. In the recent past, we have been seeing a high demand for full-stack developers.
Consider a cricket team (or any sports team). We need specialist bowlers, specialist batsmen/batswomen, and few all-rounders. Sometimes, all-rounders help to win a match or even a series. But, there is no team without specialists. …
Continuous learning is a necessity and a challenge to most of us. Companies invest a lot to upskill their workforce to stay relevant. I am sharing my experience and viewpoint about “How to do smart learning?” and importantly “How to keep yourself motivated?”
Remember the following:
Front-end developers, who know more than one JS framework have an advantage these days. Sometimes, the developer fluency on one “framework” (say React) gets carried on to the development work in another framework (say Vue).
I will be sharing one such experience of React developers working on Vue 2 based project. Some of the listed points would work in Vue, but that’s NOT the approach a hard-core Vue developer would have taken.
💡I will extend the blog as and…
Shallow equality is verified by iterating on the keys of the objects being compared and returning true when the values of a key in each object are strictly equal for all the keys.
React relies on shallow equality between current and next state/props to decide on whether to re-render or not. Shallow Compare is the negation of Shallow Equality. Render if shallowCompare returns true.
Shallow equality becomes dicey when the nestedness increases. I have created the mental model (cheat sheet) to remember the intricacies.
A lot happens during JVM Garbage Collection. GC logs would be the closest one who would have witnessed 😄 and record the events as it happens. By looking at these logs we would be able to understand how well our application behaves for a given scenario, configuration, and/or load.
Typical questions that would get answered are
