  • Should I skip jQuery and learn REACT straight away or something else altogether?
    reddit.com/r/reactjs | 2021-10-15
    Here's a real life example. I was building a React app with a mongo database behind a socket.io server for real-time data storage and reference. Had issues with agreeing on the layout with the customer, so we agreed to do something that looks and feels like a spreadsheet, as that's how they've been doing stuff until now. So i used a common table library, but ended up having issues displaying things the way certain cells needed to appear, due to the way the table wanted the data being completely opposite from how i was managing state. Since the table solution was a short-term hack job until we could agree on a better layout for the page, i hardcoded some jQuery hacks and got the job done in no time.

    The JavaScript side you can get from https://socket.io/, it is relatively simple once you get used to the event based nature of it so I'd recommend starting with a blank project to test things out first.

  • can we use firebase for notification service
    reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-10-13
    My client and me had a dicussion recently about the notification module i was suggesting the below given design for the implementation i said we can socket.io to broadcast notification to users but he was adament about using firebase as a notification service and then argument got heated i asked him why we should use firebase since its very simple notification module we can do that node.js itself he replied that his team has used firebase for notifications in the past its very reliable saves a lot of time and then he goes on with the things he had done as a project manager in the past. i thought there is no point arguing with him anymore so i accepted but main problem is iam not familier with firebase i usually work in MEAN , MERN, JAM, stack so I have to learn firebase and then I have to implement the requirement

    NodeJs NodeJs is an open-source project that runs the V8 javascript engine, it is also a cross-platform runtime environment. NodeJs has helped developers write server-side code. NodeJs uses the javascript syntax. With a vast module of libraries, developers have shorter development time as most of the libraries handle bulky code contents. NodeJs also have frameworks like Express, Fastify, FeatherJs, Socket.io, Strapi and others.

  • How to create a WebSocket Service in angular 12?
    reddit.com/r/angular | 2021-09-30
    Its not an angular question, you are approaching it wrong. Wrapping the websocket api (or socket.io api) in an angular Service is just an exercise in wrapping any API in a dependency injection provider. You don't necessarily need rxjs, but you need to figure how you internally want to handle incoming messages (though I do recommend publishing the events as rxjs Observable instead of passing callbacks around by hand).

    thanks. I heard socket.io was more complicated than ws and also not beneficial at all, but I guess sackoverflow wasnt the best source to research this
    reddit.com/r/angular | 2021-09-30
    Yes and no. Its more abstracted and opinionated than just raw websockets. But I think its drastically easier to architect with than raw websockets. If you are trying to homebrew a solution with just raw ws, youre going to end up reinventing the wheel in terms of what socket.io already provides out of the box.
