  • Presentation of React Http Request Handler (RH2) a React library
    2 projects | | 17 Aug 2022
    To understand the interest of this phase, it is good to know what it is for. Here we have an example with the configuration which is practically the smallest. If you go a little further, you will notice that you can configure several settings so that the library generates as many Axios instances as you need. These instances will be identified with a key, this to allow you to execute an HTTP request with the instance of your choice, if none is defined to execute the request, don’t panic. We have made sure that the configuration is as simple as possible, so, if the key is not filled in, we take the first available instance (the order of the instances is equivalent to the order of the information given during the configuration). In our example, we haven’t configured anything about this, so RH2 will initialize a default instance.
  • Axios & Error handling like a boss 😎
    3 projects | | 6 Aug 2022
    Alternatively, we have a awesome library named Axios, that have a nice API (for curiosity purposes, under the hood, uses XMLHttpRequest, giving a very wide browser support). The Axios API wraps the XMLHttpRequest into Promises, different from Fetch API. Beside that, nowadays Fetch API is well supported by the browsers engines available, and have polyfills for older browsers. I will not discuss which one is better because i really think is personal preference, like any other library or framework around. If you dont't have an opinion, i suggest that you seek some comparisons and dive deep articles. Has a nice article that i will mention to you written by Faraz Kelhini.
  • Six Reasons why you should use NestJS
    7 projects | | 5 Aug 2022
    NestJS has integrations for most of the major libraries which we use for server side application development with JavaScript, most of the cases were thought in advance and pre-built solutions already exists. NestJS can be easily coupled with Axios to enable server side data fetching, it can also be coupled to almost any database; MongoDB and Mongoose, TypeORM and MySQL, just to name a few. I did not have trouble integrating multer for handling file uploads with NestJS, like I've said so many times already, All this was carefully thought about. If it isn't already available then I've also discovered that it is quite easy to mix the both of them, you would find it easy to use your favorite library with NestJS.
