In this tutorial we will explore using StencilJS, a web-components compiler, to build a very simple web component that can be used on any other web project. Stencil is a tool created by the team at Ionic, who are also behind some other great tools and frameworks including Capacitor, and – Ionic: a framework for…

In this tutorial we will explore using a package called multer, which provides a node express middleware, to upload images to our ExpressJS API. To upload the images, I will be using sample code from a component written in VueJS, but asides from syntax, the process is identical in vanilla JavaScript and any other front-end…

One of the key reasons I like Angular is because it comes with all the bells and whistles (unlike some other SPA JavaScript frameworks). I like rapidly prototyping applications with minimal setup and configurations which I was I massively appreciate being able to run ng new myApp and end up with a zero-configuration-needed Angular application…

The release of Angular 6 brought improved support for TypeScript, and the July release of VS Code brought support for TypeScript v2.9.2 by default. However, since updating, some users developing Angular applications for work have discovered a bug where IntelliSense imports have stopped using path masks. The issue is particularly prevalent when creating a new…

The Ionic framework does a great job of making the build process from JavaScript to a bundled Android APK or Apple XCode Project really simple. In most cases, you only need to run the command line instruction ionic build [platform] from within your project. However the process to build for both Android and iOS, and…

The biggest buzzwords in the Angular scene right now are actually concepts made mainstream by React: Application state or store using a Redux pattern. NgRx is a fantastic library which allows Angular developers to use a Redux store to maintain application state. It’s really powerful, and integrating it with @ngrx/effects or metaReducers as well as…

Since I couldn’t find any resources on Angular 5 app structure with multiple modules, I decided that whilst rebuilding an AngularJS app, I would implement a multiple-module architecture and document it. Later, I updated the architecture to be compliant with the Angular 6 major release. Below is the approach I took, with some justifications for…

You can read more about the GDPR regulation on the Information Commissioner Office’s website. This tutorial will focus on making WordPress websites which utilise Google Analytics for monitoring traffic to…

I’m sure we have all been there. I just finished up a pretty big project for a client’s website using WordPress, and after all testing was completed the site went live. A few days later there were reports of messages from the website not reaching Microsoft Hotmail inboxes. I tried to replicate the issue with…

Feature toggles in systems which are heavily user-interface orientated can be a challenge. So far, I haven’t found a way to use them effectively without clogging up my code with if statements. But, if you build an Angular app and follow a router-based architecture, then you can make good use of an unconventional feature bundled…
