@Smootimus it looks like all the values are hard-coded? so isn't it just a basic math problem?

same style added to both the inputs. yet output differs

Jul 25 2018 05:11
change formInput to input
just inout not class input
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 05:20
@Ashanzeroxster_twitter the second formInput behave differently because is a child of the first formInput as well,
perhaps you forgot to close the div when necessary?
pretty sure this is a typo:
      <div class="formInput">
          <input type="text" id="name" name="name" required>
           <div> <!-- you sure you want to open a div here? -->
           </div> <!-- I close the above and not the formInput -->

hey guys, I'm working on the markdown previewer project and I need a little help to understand why tests 5 & 6 (the first load tests) won't pass. My markdown gets converted correctly into HTML inside the TextArea.
test.png
import React, { Component } from 'react';
import './App.css';
import 'font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css';
import marked from 'marked';

class TextArea extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <div id="preview" dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{__html: this.props.value}} />
        );
    }
}

class Editor extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);

  const defaultMarkdown = 
  `# This is an h1

  ## This is an h2

  [MSN](https://www.msn.com/)

  You inline code like this: \`<div></div>\`, between 2 backticks

  This is a code block using 3 backticks:
  \`\`\`
  var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting";
  alert(s);
  \`\`\`

  1. This is a numbered list item

  > This is a block quote

  ![Markdown logo](https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/raw/master/src/common/images/icon48.png "Logo Title Text 1")

  `;

    this.state = {
      value: defaultMarkdown
    };
  }

  handleChange(event) {
    this.setState({
      value: event.target.value
    });
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <div className="container">
        <div className="input">
          <textarea name="editor" id="editor" cols="30" rows="10" placeholder="Type in text you want to render as HTML" onChange={this.handleChange}>{this.state.value}</textarea>      
        </div>
        <div className="output">
          <TextArea value={marked(this.state.value,{sanitize: true})} />      
        </div>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

@Marmiz I'm having trouble making a codepen from this. I can screenshot the test requirements for you though

Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 10:58
@AmitP88 as you can see the blockquote failed ;)
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 10:58
@Marmiz I thought it didn't lol
and I used > Block Quote
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 10:59
@AmitP88 the thing is that in md the blockquote doesn't have a space after the >
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 10:59
I tried it without the space too and it still failed
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 11:00
perhaps it gets sanitized by your markdown library?
(throwing random ideas on why it may have failed)
or perhaps the way it renders the quote in html is different?
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 11:01
I have no idea lol
I mean if that was the case, why does it only fail for block quote?
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 11:06
@AmitP88 have you tried not escaping the thicks? but let the md actually convert those?
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 11:07
you mean for the code block part?
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 11:07
or use a list instead of a numbered list?
just throwing ideas out there
without trying it myself is kinda hard :)
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 11:08
lol I understand
I changed the number list to bullet list using * and tried unescaping the but it doesn't work (I run into an error when is unescaped)
Claudio Restifo
@Marmiz
Jul 25 2018 11:16
@AmitP88 btw don't you have to define a renderer for marked to work?
again, it would be great to have a reproducible demo :smiley:
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 11:17
@Marmiz what do you mean renderer?
lol I know, I tried putting it on codepen but I was getting CORS errors and all sorts and nothing would render
it doesn't make any sense, everything works in the app, yet the test won't pass
@Marmiz oh yeah, I found this:
const renderer = new marked.Renderer();
renderer.link = function(href, title, text) {
  const link = marked.Renderer.prototype.link.call(this, href, title, text);
  return link.replace("<a","<a target='_blank' ");
};

marked.setOptions({
  breaks: true,
  renderer: renderer,
  sanitize: true
});
and placed it in my code, and it passed the 2 bonus tests, but not tests 5 & 6 lol
I guess that's what you meant by renderer lol
Amit Patel
@AmitP88
Jul 25 2018 11:32
damn, I still don't know what's going on lol. 5 & 6 should pass
Amit Patel

Youre supposed to set up a route that reacts to POST request. Then handle the data that you receive with the request
Do you have a glitch or github with your current project? I assume you have made a GET route as well

hey guys, I know this might not be the right room for this, but I need a little help with the markdown previewer fcc project

just wondering if anyone else ran into this issue with this project
import React, { Component } from 'react';

import marked from 'marked';

class TextArea extends React.Component {

    }
}

class Editor extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);

    const renderer = new marked.Renderer();
    renderer.link = function(href, title, text) {
      const link = marked.Renderer.prototype.link.call(this, href, title, text);

export default App;
I can't figure out why the last test isn't passing, when in the app the markdown is being converted to HTML in the TextArea element

As far as i can see you already have a post route :)
And youre adding body-parser middleware twice
app.post('/name', function(req, res) {
    var first = req.body.first;
    var last = req.body.last;

    res.send(first + last);
you need to close this as well
And remember youre being asked to respond with JSON. A big hint would be to look up 10 lines and see how youre handling the response there :D

Below we will define an n-interesting polygon. Your task is to find the area of a polygon for a given n.

A 1-interesting polygon is just a square with a side of length 1. An n-interesting polygon is obtained by taking the n - 1-interesting polygon and appending 1-interesting polygons to its rim, side by side. You can see the 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-interesting polygons in the picture below.
Example

For n = 2, the output should be
shapeArea(n) = 5;
For n = 3, the output should be
shapeArea(n) = 13.

@coderkarma as far as I know that's pretty much a purely mathematical problem. You can review the differences between each value N and determine a formula using N to determine the total area at any given input

Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Jul 25 2018 15:54
it looks like they want you to write a function that takes a single argument, and then returns the number of squares (area) of an n-interesting polygon where n is the parameter passed into the function
function shapeArea(n) {
  // do some mathimagical stuff
  return area;
}

@hansUno2 All day, every day. I think my real problem has been with advance algorithms and DB/Node stuff. The basic / general frontend stuff I can do pretty well. I know SASS / MaterializeCSS but I'm not big on css so I don't mention those so as to not give folks the sense that I'm a CSS wiz. So basically, I have, read up on alot of things and can pickup anything else that is required for a team project really quickly
What is qql? @hansUno2
