Yes… you read that right, I am still using
gulp. Recently, with all the hype and the fact that most of the people I know are switching to npm scripts,
gulp seems to be something in the distant past. But, here I am, still using
gulp because with
gulp or similar task manager libraries, you can share the tasks between your projects. Or you can even have a set of tasks that you usually use in your side projects in one git repository and re-use them every time you have some brilliant ideas and want to roll a new side project (and quickly abandon it like I often do).
Today, I am going to take a break from the simple chat app series because I want to build something else for a change. During my work, I usually have to work with APIs a lot from integrating with existing APIs to building a new one for internal or external uses. I have tried a lot of different frameworks and even built one for my master’s thesis.
Previously, I had the basic API server up and running. In this part I am going to continue with the authentication and authorization (via Github). The purpose is to have a simple login system where the users need to log in (via Github) before they can send messages.
I have been keeping my eyes on Vuejs
for quite some time, and I finally decided to build something with it. I am going to build a simple chat web app using Faye, Express and Vue. I have been using Faye and Express for several years, Vue is the new guy here.
After setting up the blog, I ran into several problems, two of them were that I didn’t have syntax highlighting and nginx redirected requests to paths without
/ at the end to wrong URL.
Setting up your own blog has never been easier. With less than an hour, one can have a blog up and running even without any Ops experience like myself
