    Project mention: Introduction to Nodejs and Express | | 2021-10-17

    In express applications we can install as many dependencies as we want. We only need to type in our terminal npm install followed by package name. Once we install the package, it will be added to de dependencies in your package.json file. Now let's install one package. In previous examples you saw that you had to reset terminal when you modified your code. This package is going to avoid the need of resetting your application as you add code. This package is Nodemon. You only need to type the following command, and your application will be ready.

    Node.js test runner that lets you develop with confidence 🚀

    Project mention: Some Use-Cases for JS Generator Functions | | 2021-09-02

    But this commit broken the unit tests. I use Ava (the only test runner that allows for async tests, so I can write unit tests in my own language) and snapshots for testing the list structure in few unit tests, and somehow the snapshots differ before and after adding iterator to Lists. I still need to investigate why and try to create simple reproduction for this issue on GitHub avajs/ava#2811.

    Whatsapp problem isn't in the algorithm, but their identity resolution (hence their roundabout way of doing their web client:

    iMessage approach is to treat every conversation as a group chat between all the recipient devices and all of yours. There's another risk here, that Apple doesn't let the end user verify the list of devices the chat is encrypted for.

    Which is to say, a perfect E2E experience isn't trivial to design, but you don't have to drop the ball completely.
