hey guys
Capture55.PNG
i have this action page that contains actions and each action have their own page
what i want to do is to give the admin permission to add more actions using uploaded files
any ideas ??
Gersho
@Gersho
Jan 16 2018 02:53 UTC
that would require some backend since you want to be able to modify the page (and more importantly, save those changes)
bg-grira53
@bg-grira53
Jan 16 2018 02:54 UTC
yeah i know , and i am thinkin to use php
but the problem is how i can create another page so the button in the new action will take me to it
Gersho
@Gersho
Jan 16 2018 02:55 UTC
sorry i don't php i have no idea ^^

@bg-grira53 if using laravel 5.5 as backend why not a vue component to display the page action feeded with data by the admin?

Jan 16 2018 03:01 UTC
more simple english plz... i didn't undrestand you
Sorin Ruse
@sorinr
Jan 16 2018 03:37 UTC
@bg-grira53 as you have planned to use php take a look to the laravel framework documentation. read about routing, blade templates and frontend scaffolding

I just made a bitcoin widget and when I click refresh data it's interacting with my convert button
My convert button should change the currency from "USD" to "EUR" but my buttons are interacting with one another
I have different ID's assigned to each button
@VaseJS Hopefully that makes sense lol
VaseJS
@VaseJS
Jan 16 2018 04:03 UTC
@DarrenfJ hey
@josha5 you may have a bubbling issue. when you have a click event, the click will propagate and activate other similar click events. start there

@Marmiz yea. they are nice but can also be a pain in the a.. when working more people on same project
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:12 UTC
why so?
I mean, it's just a way for JSX to avoid the need of creating extra DOM nodes

React: Optimize Re-Renders with shouldComponentUpdate
https://beta.freecodecamp.org/en/challenges/react/optimize-rerenders-with-shouldcomponentupdate

Modify the method so OnlyEvens updates only if the value of its new props is even

shouldComponentUpdate(nextProps, nextState) {
    console.log('Should I update?');
     // change code below this line
    console.log(nextProps);
    if(nextProps % 2 == 0){
      return true;
    }else return false;
     // change code above this line
  }
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:35 UTC
@zifahm nextProps is likely to be an object, you should access some value in it and compare, i presume
look at the shape of nextProps in console, since you are logging it
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:37 UTC
{
value:1
}
so nextProps.value ?
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:38 UTC
what do you think? :D
you know what happens in JS if you compare two objects?
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:39 UTC
how do i do it
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:40 UTC
you want to know if value prop is even
you are there... you are just accessing the wrong value
in all honesty it's "kind of" javascript fault that let you perform an arithmetic operation on an object :/
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:43 UTC
i cant do it !!
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:45 UTC
if(nextProps % 2 == 0)

you are asking if an object divided by two has a reminder of 0.

you want to ask if value inside nextProps object, divided by two, has a reminder of 0.
You're almost there :)

Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:45 UTC
yeah i did nexProps.value %2 == 0
still not getting it!
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:53 UTC
may be that the challenge is bugged... beta is under heavy maintenance nowadays.
Have you check for existing reported bugs?
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:53 UTC
so what i did was right?
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:54 UTC
also as long as you can try and you see only even numbers that's good, means your shouldComponent is working
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:54 UTC
nextProps.value?
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:56 UTC
yep :)
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 05:58 UTC

i get am getting an error on the editor console
"invalid regular expression: missing"
and also these objective are not ticked

The OnlyEvens component should return an h1 tag which renders the value of this. }; props.value.

OnlyEvens should re-render only when nextProps. }; value is even.

Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jan 16 2018 05:59 UTC

@zifahm this challenge is bugged... Told you to look for open bugs.

It has actually been fixed a couple of minutes ago... the last two test are not working.

React: Use a Ternary Expression for Conditional Rendering
https://beta.freecodecamp.org/en/challenges/react/use-a-ternary-expression-for-conditional-rendering
ternary expression that implements the following logic: when the page first loads, render the submit button, buttonOne, to the page. Then, when a user enters their age and clicks the button, render a different button based on the age. If a user enters a number less than 18, render buttonThree. If a user enters a number greater than or equal to 18, render buttonTwo.
{        (document.readyState=="loading") ? buttonOne:
          (this.state.userAge>18)?buttonThree:buttonTwo
           }
been trying a lot of ways!!

@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 14:07 UTC
How to interpret this?
Create a new component held in a constant called Container that uses connect to connect the Presentational component to Redux
class Container extends React.Component {
  render(){
    return ({connect(mapStateToProps,mapDispatchToProps)(Presentational)});
  }
};
like this?
Stephen James
@sjames1958gm
Jan 16 2018 14:30 UTC
@zifahm Maybe:
const Container = connect(mapStateToProps,mapDispatchToProps)(Presentational);
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 14:30 UTC
yeah but it does say creat a new component !! @sjames1958gm
Stephen James
@sjames1958gm
Jan 16 2018 14:30 UTC
@zifahm I believe connect returns a new components
Muhammed Hafiz
@zifahm
Jan 16 2018 14:31 UTC
yeah i understood after looking at the next challenge
now i know it return a component

Hey guys, there's a site I used to use all the time for developing and I was wondering if anyone could help me find it. It was like a universal repository for documents related to programming languages. You had a menu of available languages on the left side of the screen. You could explore it and search it from that area.
You could also download all the documentation for a programming language for offline use.

I literally never saved anything, over the months I've collected bunch and bunch of text snippets and just put them to lay there in Sublime Text.
It was wonderful experience. I'd shut down pc, I'd restart it, I'd kill it with an off switch, and when turned it on it was all there. Until today.
Goodbye bunch of unsaved text, goodbye forevs... :sob:

i have plenty of space atm too, but i spend 4 years with only 128Go internal storage with 3 OS installed so i learned to be stingy about it

That's funny considering I place everything temporary, in RAM. I barely use my tmp directory.

anyone expand the space on vmware workstation?

depends the type of disk you set when you created the VM

some allow resizing
Henry
@GitHub-Henry
Jan 16 2018 20:55 UTC
i did the external expand, then it said the guest needed to expand also
need to figure that part out
Jesse
@ki4jgt
Jan 16 2018 20:56 UTC
Did you expand your partitions or does it require that?
Henry
@GitHub-Henry

that's the part

oh, guess it works differently than virtualbox because i have no idea what you're talking about

it said expand the partitons, how do i do that

Jan 16 2018 20:57 UTC
ok, i'll check there
Gersho
@Gersho

a workaround could be to add a second disk and put some symlinks

Jan 16 2018 21:19 UTC
4K monitors have gotten a lot cheaper but you need a 1080 Ti to get 60 frames consistently on games
So are they really cheap? nah
There were some 200Hz Gsync 4K displays at CES. I doubt those things are gonna be <$2K
And how would you even run those at 200 FPS???

hi! can i declare an object like this:

then call:
document.getElementById('start');
thank you

We don't know what the object constructor (and object in general) looks like

the complete function is here: https://codepen.io/dkapexhiu/pen/WdJGXg

Okay but we still don't know anything about the google.maps.Marker object
Daniel
@dkapexhiu
Jan 16 2018 21:49 UTC
yes, it is unknown for us..
but it can work i think..
Daniel
@dkapexhiu
Jan 16 2018 21:56 UTC
or because the id is not declared in the dom, i cannot call getElementById
Kaz Baig
@kbaig
Jan 16 2018 21:59 UTC
@dkapexhiu inspect the element to see if the id is applied
Daniel
@dkapexhiu

it only shows the map div and doesnt get the element id

could you explain this to me ? i use atom too

Jan 16 2018 23:02 UTC
i figured it out so, didn't need the question
i'm just reading the doc, https://zealdocs.org/usage.html
so haven't figured it out
think, i'll add it to my to do list, would make atom.io even more awesome
Gersho
@Gersho
Jan 16 2018 23:04 UTC
i'm using like 0.1% of atom's possibilities (wouldn't be much difference if i was using a text editor)
Henry
@GitHub-Henry
Jan 16 2018 23:09 UTC
@Gersho i have a feeling zeal uses 1 set of docs and atom will use another set of docs, not synced, so twice the space
they are separate projects so it makes sense
Gersho
@Gersho
Jan 16 2018 23:11 UTC
after looking at the usage it didn't really made sense with my workflow so i won't get it anyway
i like having zeal separate
Henry
@GitHub-Henry
Jan 16 2018 23:13 UTC
@Gersho I might add only the JavaScript doc set to Atom and see how things work with it . Not liking doubling of space required, since I had to add space just to add Zeal.
