    Project mention: I'm trying to follow the tutorial for creating a server block, do I literally have to create a new HTML file or do I use the code I already have? | | 2022-11-23

    This is the code I have running on a DigitalOcean virtual machine (Droplet). I used this package pm2 to keep it running perpetually as a process with the command "pm2 index.js".

    Project mention: Understanding API key authentication in Node.js | | 2022-11-23

    First, we’ll handle all the installation and initial setup to run our application. We’ll use Express to develop the API and Nodemon to run the API server and listen for changes in the code in real-time.

  • mocha

    ☕️ simple, flexible, fun javascript test framework for node.js & the browser

    Project mention: Battle-Testing Nx Console with E2E Tests | | 2022-11-16

    Integration Tests combine multiple parts of your software and test them together. They are a good option for testing some behaviour of extensions. If you read the docs, they suggest using the @vscode/test-electron package and mocha. This will allow you to run tests inside an actual VSCode instance, so you avoid mocking. However, you are still constrained. The API gives limited information on many areas. For example even this very simple test is not easily realizable with the VSCode API:

  • validator.js

    String validation

    Project mention: validator.js VS deno_validate - a user suggested alternative | | 2022-09-17

    Project mention: and Websocket: Connection randomly being closed after 5-ish minutes? | | 2022-09-20

    I'm trying out as a potential replacement for Heroku to host and run my code, which uses Node, Express, and the ws package to connect a game made on Godot Engine and the webapp, using a Websocket connection. However, when I migrated the code over, I've noticed that the game lasts barely a quarter of the way before the server aborts the Websocket connection for literally no reason. I'm serious, it's what the log says:

  • cz-cli

    The commitizen command line utility. #BlackLivesMatter

  • nodeBB

    Node.js based forum software built for the modern web

    Project mention: The over-reliance on Discord is doing more harm than good. | | 2022-11-23

    If you want to make your own app out of custom code that you will actively develop new features for, I think your points are true. But if you just wanted a modern version of the old phpBB forums, there are plenty of almost-turnkey projects/templates you can use. Check out NodeBB for instance. Maybe the barrier for entry is higher in a way, given increased complexity, but you also get more and nicer features "for free". I think it's a wash.

  • supertest

    🕷 Super-agent driven library for testing node.js HTTP servers using a fluent API.

    Project mention: Ever hear of anyone doing headless functional testing with Jest? | | 2022-11-11

    I did something similar with a full stack Typescript project, using supertest and node-fetch. It was nice.

  • Nock

    HTTP server mocking and expectations library for Node.js

    Project mention: OSD600 - Telescope - Testing for feed URLs | | 2022-11-20

    I looked at the service which is used to get the feed URLs from a blog URL and noticed it takes the html response of the blog URL and gets the links ( tags) by checking the type attribute value against a list of valid feed values. So, I decided to use a similar approach by getting the html response for a provided URL and checking the Content-Type header against a list of valid MIME types for a feed. I ended up updating the logic to test if a URL is a feed URL, returning it if true. If the URL is found to not be a feed URL, it would try to get the feed URLs assuming the URL is a blog URL. I tested and confirmed that the new logic worked for both blog and feed URLs. Then, I added some tests for the new function I added to test for a feed URL. Testing this ended up being simpler than I expected as all I had to do was mock the response of a test url (using nock), and then check if the function returned the correct boolean value for a url. I created a PR and noticed that some of the tests in another file were now failing. While I was investigating this, I got a review on my PR, requesting me to add another test to the file which had the failing tests. That file tested the API service as a whole. I found out that nock only mocks a URL's response for one request by default. And since I was now checking for a feed URL as well, the function which returned the feed URLs from a blog URL was throwing an error since the nock for that was used up. To fix this, I had to specify in the nock statement to mock the URL response for two requests:

  • reactide

  • debug

    Project mention: Is it bad practice to log within a shared library? | | 2022-08-23

    Use the [debug npm library]( to disable your logging unless someone provides the right environment variable (e.g. DEBUG=* which enables all logging)

  • Habitica

  • vorpal

    Node's framework for interactive CLIs

    Project mention: google/zx: write shell scripts in JavaScript | | 2022-01-07

    Got it, so more about the general idea of using Node to interact with a shell. Fair points but I'm not sure that's where zx falls. I'm looking at it in relation to projects like commander, oclif, and vorpal— frameworks for authoring and packaging local-use CLI tools written in JS, typically aimed at people who know JS and work in a terminal but don't know shell scripting. Those have the overhead of learning a framework, and don't do anything to help you work with the shell. zx seems to come from the other direction: instead of an esoteric framework, shell concepts and shell commands in a Node script.
