When I'm designing a web application that I want to be responsive, I frequently use the units vh and vw (which stand for viewport height and viewport width). These are great because they allow you to size things based on a percentage of the viewport height. However, sometimes you want things sized at 100% of the height or width minus a constant, and that's where the calc function comes in handy!
Reagent is an awesome marriage of a React, an industry standard web front-end based on immutable component state, with ClojureScript, a functional lisp programming language with a terse syntax that heavily leverages immutable data. This post is about how to easily create a Reagent project that will get you up and running with familiar tooling similar to other React and NodeJs.
In my new role I've been given the opportunity to really dig into React, learn a lot about it, and build an application with it. I had previously used Ngrx in Angular 2 so it was interesting to go back to the original Redux library after having used the Angular step-cousin. After a few small roadblocks the application is progressing rather smoothly, and I have to say I think Redux is pretty dang awesome.
If you were using an older version of angular CLI before it had aot built into it then you may start to receive these errors when you run you usual `ng serve` or `ng build` commands:
ERROR in Error encountered resolving symbol values statically. Function calls are not supported. Consider replacing the function or lambda with a reference to an exported function (position 7:3 in the original .ts file), resolving symbol mainStoreReducer in /.../, resolving symbol AppModule in /../, resolving symbol AppModule in /../, resolving symbol AppModule in /../
I just had the awesome opportunity to TA and sit in on a 2-day Angular 2 course instructed by one of the top teachers in the web development world and the hungry mind behind One Hungry Mind Blog, Lukas Ruebbelke (@simpulton). It was especially humbling because his eggy bookmarks course was one of the very first times I really dug in and started writing Angular code. It felt like meeting a childhood hero or Santa Claus. I had spent so much time watching his videos that it was surreal to meet him in person, and yes he is really that goofy and funny in real life. haha. Anyway, even though I have been using Angular 2 for a little while now and the course was aimed more for beginners, I still took about 4 pages of notes and learned a ton while I was there. Plus, it was great to get a refresher/confirmation on some basic concepts and some new perspective on how to think about certain other things. In this post I've written a bullet point list of some after-the-fact thoughts while looking back at the notes I took during the lectures. Enjoy!
