Good day, can someone help me with why the i in my for loop is changing values in a weird way?
``````function fearNotLetter(str) {
let alphabet = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz".split("");
str = str.split("");
let loopStart = alphabet.indexOf(str[0]);
console.log(loopStart);
for (let i = loopStart; i < alphabet.length; i++){
console.log(alphabet[loopStart] + " alphabet loopStart");
console.log(alphabet[i] + " alphabet i")
let j = 0;
if (str[j] != alphabet[i]){
console.log(str[j] + " str J value inside if");
console.log(alphabet[i] + " alphabet i inside if");
return alphabet[i];
}
console.log(str[j] + " str J value");
console.log(i + " i value");
}
return alphabet;
}

fearNotLetter("stvwx");``````
``````so the return is this
18
s alphabet loopStart
s alphabet i
s str J value
18 i value
s alphabet loopStart
t alphabet i
s str J value inside if
t alphabet i inside if
=> 't'``````
wait
I think it's my str that's not changing values :|
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:05
@kinopotato You have `let j = 0;` inside the loop.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 01:06
if(str[j] === alphabet[i]){
j++;
}
wait
oh yeah
hmm, that should work, if it's equal then it should add to j
my j isn't changing values, :| hmm should I just make a nested for loop?
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:09
It wont work, the `j` would be initialized to `0` every iteration.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 01:09
yes xD I just removed it from the loop. why do I keep forgetting these things
I need to stick a post it on my face or something, forgetting where return should be placed, or where variables should be declared
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:11
Not a bad idea, you can make small sticky notes - stick it on the desk or something (hopefully not your face).
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 01:12
the amount of console.log in my code is terrifying, is there an automatic way to see what is happening with my variables?
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:12
It also helps to just talk to yourself (rubber duck debugging). Walk through your code, explaining out loud what is going on at each step, what you expect to happen, etc... You'd be surprised at how useful this is
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 01:13
@cmccormack I've heard it before and never tried it, but I'm guessing I should since something hit me the moment I posted my code here, I realized that it wasn't the i that's the problem but the j
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:13
People tend to just throw lines together hoping it will fix it and replace it with something else if it doesn't but if you walk through it paying attention to which case does what, and limiting side effects, it gets easier

Nov 02 2018 01:14
@kinopotato You can use chrome debugger or some text editors have debuggers to see the variables value.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 01:14
@cmccormack that's exactly what I do. at least now I don't just trash my code, so that's something at least xD
chrome debugger is through f12?
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:15
You'll have to add `debugger` statement inside the loop.
Didnt know chrome dev tools have a dark mode. :black_square: :pray:
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:18
Does it have themes yet?
I don't like the dark mode theme very much
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 01:19
coding on a 13 inch screen can be quite bothersome when you're an idiot and needs to monitor each variable. xD
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:20
Nah, it just have dark and light theme
I think React dev tools have bunch of themes
But that only works with React apps
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:21
heh right
@ezioda004 does `git status` on your local fcc fork take like 30 seconds?
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:23
No clue, I havent setup locally :D
@cmccormack Does this guide works?
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:24
I haven't tried it yet, just cloned it
I wanted to try that method to update the PR fork with the latest master so it wouldn't fail CI but it takes so long
doesn't help that my terminal PROMPT also does a `git status` every time the prompt updates either
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:25
What happened to the script to restart all the PR's?
I'd try to setup fcc locally this weekend, there are bunch PR's that I need to test. Hopefully we can also start React stuff too from this weekend.
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:29
@ezioda004 I think maybe they aren't doing it because of :point_up: November 1, 2018 8:01 AM
that's why I'm looking into doing it locally
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:33
Huh? If we restart the build it references the old commit? Thats weird..
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:36
I'm not sure how Travis works, I guess I assumed it would take the diff of the commit and apply it to the master but it may just run against their fork, so if the ci tests change their fork might fail
but I don't really know, that's all guesses
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:42
Hmm I'll look into this. Before I believe builds were failing because some wrong PR was merged so we didnt have to update PR's, just restart those builds and it'd work.
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 01:45
yeah not sure like I said all guesses
wish I knew more about how it worked
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 01:46
Isnt there a guide on fcc about travis? :D

I feel like instead of using `upstream` as the repo name they should use something like `git push DONT-TOUCH-UNLESS-YOU-KNOW-WHAT-YOU-ARE-DOING master` in their documentation
although that may encourage some now that I think of it
@ezioda004

Ah, I can clone I guess
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 02:09

I know you know that
but just in case haha
@ezioda004 find out why this keeps happening in the CI?
``````\$ npm run test-ci

Thats how you do it? Thanks, I was gonna go to kitchen and grab a fork

that makes me a little more comfortable then haha
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 02:14
We have perms so we can push :P
Anyway, so `test-ci` script is missing, right?
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 02:16
oh then less comfortable again thanks
that's what it's saying
@ezioda004

hmm I'm using WSL bash wonder if that's why
how do you change drives from git bash
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 02:28
I can try on that
`cd /c`
And so on
Ah its actually very slow in WSL

Alright, this is gonna sound stupid. For my final project in CS I need to be able to code from scratch a game.
My idea was a simple 3 door game, where you have a 66% chance of "clearing" the game and moving on. My issue is I'm stuck on how to make the door display "Game clear!" or "Game Over!". I would love it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Guys you know how when you keep pressing tab it highlights certain areas on sites? And you cycle through them. That's "focus" right?
How do I style this focus in css? It's currently highlighting everything with a dim color I want it to be either gone in some areas or with a better color
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 09:56
@diomed Great, so when do I get it delivered?
@darkphotonKN Yes, you do that with `:focus` and `tab-index`.
I believe you'd need to do something like `outline: 0`(this is default behavior) first.

``````let breakPoint = true;

I specifically state that breakPoint is now equal false, so it should stop at lcm 1

@kinopotato `breakPoint = true` is an expression, try typing in console and see what it evaluates to.
@diomed
Nov 02 2018 10:17
see... that's where you're wrong. it doesn't stop.
it goes on and on and on...

@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:18
@ezioda004 it's supposed to return true right? so what's the problem??
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 10:19
@kinopotato Yes, it evaluates to `true` so its essentially `while (true) {}`
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:19
but I set it to false
???
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 10:20
It doesnt matter, its about what the expression evaluates to.
Change it to `while (breakPoint)` and it should work fine.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:21
wtf, wattt??
what??
I don't get the logic. so I explicitly state that while breakPoint is true, continue, but when it's false, stop. so that's an infinite loop. but if you just put breakPoint which is "true" and remove "true" it works??
@diomed
Nov 02 2018 10:22
mindblowing. isn't it?
that's javascript.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:22
is this a quirk or am I just not getting something obvious?
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 10:24
Its not a quirk, you just need to understand that `=` operator is an expression and expressions evaluates to a value. Statements such as `if`, `while` etc dont care what you're assigning in the field where they evaluate, they evaluate the expression that you provide.

@ezioda004 pls help with 10001 things
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:27
hmm, so as I understand it, before the loop, breakPoint is equal to true. if I put the complete breakPoint = true inside the while() then what happens is it gets while(true) and when I change the value of breakPoint to false, it doesn't understand since it only took the value of true
but if I put breakPoint, then I tell while that look out for value of breakPoint (which is currently true) and if that changes, then break it

@diomed nopes not yet
but I have received the email confirmation
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 10:29
@kinopotato Yes, thats correct. Just to prove its a behavior thats common in every language.
``````#include <stdio.h>
// Dont run this code, infinite loop
void main(){
int x = 1;
while (x = 1){
x = 0;

@ows-ali me 2.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:30
hmm, so since while(1) doesn't change even if you change x since you gave 1 and not x. ohhhhhh.
@ezioda004
Nov 02 2018 10:30
Yes, `1` is synonymous with `true` and `0` with `false` in C, JS.
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 10:31
so instead of thinking while x is equal to 1 do . . . I should just think, while 1, okay okay I think I get it now

am I understanding this right that if the if statement inside my for loop is met, then it will break the loop but the value of x will remain and so the loop will begin again at arr[0] while x's value is now x + 1 from the previous where it did the break? am I understanding how while loop works?
so if the value of x is let's say 6, the statement will reset and go back to x++ making it 7 now?
Eric Weiss
@eweiss17
Nov 02 2018 12:41
your for loop is set up incorrectly. What are you trying to accomplish?
a break will essentially not execute the remainder of code and go to the next iteration instead. in your example, the break is not needed
kinopotato
@kinopotato
Nov 02 2018 12:44
I want to get the least common multiple of the numbers in arr,
so I want to make x increase by 1 until it is divisible by all the the numbers in the array
so the moment that it is not divisible, I want it to basically skip that number until the condition is fulfilled

hmm for 1, 13, it should be 26?

Nov 02 2018 13:33
it's looping because it can't handle the load. I was able to get 1 13 by disabling the infinite loop protection
but 23 and 18 is at 6 million and it's hard to keep looping 6 million times I guess xD hahahaw
fuck me, I've been working on this code for more than 4 hours just to understand it, and basically it's unusable, xD

it worked I think? it this a miracle?
lemme double check
it's working on repl.it but not in fcc :| I removed the console.log (which was logging x++) so it worked in repl.it but not in fcc :|

Hey! I have used this commands to create a react native app with expo:
npm install expo-cli --global
expo init my-new-project
cd my-new-project
expo start
But when i click to open it in emulator android, i get a blank screen with and infinite loading spinner.
The emulator is Genymotion.

Anyone got teams yet the FCC hackathon?
Christopher McCormack
@cmccormack
Nov 02 2018 23:47
If anyone has trouble getting Gatsby up and running for the hackathon and you see errors for `sharp` or `node-gyp` you may need to switch npm point to python2, as python 3 is not supported. You can do this with `npm config set python /path/to/python2.7` assuming you know the path to your python2 executable
