  • Implement cool features for my static site generator
    3 projects | dev.to | 29 Oct 2021
    Implementing those 3 features was quite simple. For metadata and markdown file, I mainly used an external library: showdown to convert from markdown files to html files as well as parsing metadata from markdown files. However, implementing the support for static assets such as images is a bit more interesting. I had to use another external library called fs-extra to copy assets folder from user to the dist folder. I also had to create another new class called CopyFolder where I used fs.copy method to copy assets folder
  • Writing JS-based Bash scripts with zx
    6 projects | dev.to | 12 Aug 2021
    The zx project implements a shell script executor similar to Bash but using JavaScript modules. It provides an inbuilt asynchronous JavaScript API to call other commands similar to Bash. Besides that, it provides wrapper functions for several Node.js-based command-line helpers such as chalk, minimist, fs-extra, OS, and Readline.
  • Why Storing Files in the Database Is Considered Bad Practice

    Node.js has the built-in fs module (fs/promises with async/await) which makes it easy to interact with the file system. On top of that, there are a few convenient libraries such as fs-extra and findit that make common tasks straightforward.

    Since Notion Desktop is basically an electron app I think there’s a way to tweak a little bit it and create a custom JavaScript function using fs-extra. Another idea is creating your own electron app. Btw I never tried to do that, so these are just some ideas. My suggestion is to not use Notion to work with file system since has not be built to do that :| I would rather use open source alternatives which don’t force the user to work in the cloud.
