You shouldn't need an API for your portfolio page. Basically an API is how you get data from another site or server. For your portfolio page, you will have to create your own 'content' or info about yourself.

basic html and css is enough for portfolio
once u learn more.. u can always go back and modify

@marcvesper
for the random quote machine project, is it intended that you host your quotes somewhere, set-up a JSON API, and then somehow call it with jQuery from codepen?
Chase
@Belax8
@marcvesper I have seen people make it two ways. 1-Make an array of quotes and randomly select a quote from your own list. 2-Find a service that provides an API to quotes. So I think you can do it however you want. They aren't very specific in the rules, so I think anything goes.

@marcvesper
(or can i get away with specifically putting a JS array full of quotes right into codep... ah, i can, ty @Belax8 :) )

I've got a Bootstrap question. I have a col-md-8 and col-md-4 lined up horizontally. I had text in the left column (8) and a photo in the right (4). Everything was perfect until I tried swapping them (so the photo is on the left. I placed the col-md-4 first then the col-md-8. Now they stack vertically for some reason. Tips on what to check to fix? (Reverting back lays out just fine)

Hello all
Not asking for help or anything but more on criticism:

besides changing the buttons on the calculator, what else do you guys suggest I should improve on?
Karolina Kluz
@karolinaKluz
@Neotriz Hello. I wonder can you do something to prevent user from imputing multiple symbols like "------" or "**"

I'm trying to make a "facebook post" button on my random quote generator, I just made a twitter one that can prefill the tweet field with the quote..
is it not possible to do that on facebook?
I'm looking all over and can't find how to prefill a post to facebook
Kenzo Mendoza
@KenzoM
@karolinaKluz thanks! That's something I forgot to debug :)

@aidansven It looks like Facebook disabled that...
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
@karolinaKluz - I don't think that you can control what the users type, you would have to filter it when you are handling the input - for example, in a calculator (I'm guessing here) you would have to check the most recent character entered, and if it was a special character like you are asking about, just toss the next incoming character.
although maybe you were not asking that question for yourself, but for the calculator posted above (which I haven't looked at yet.) Anyway...
@Neotriz - ^^^^ my comment would go to you, I guess... :)
Karolina Kluz
@karolinaKluz
@khaduch Actually I would like to know if it's possible. Filtering user input can be tricky.

@khaduch
@karolinaKluz - I think that you would have to watch the input and know which characters were being repeated (that shouldn't be accepted) and just discard the newest one, only keep the first, and then maybe even change it, if they entered - and then + - should it be subtraction or addition?
@twoBrokenThumbs - make sure your divs are properly closed. Do you want to post a link to it, we can check?
@Neotriz - I like the look of your calculator, by the way...
Ethan Rose
@ethanrose
well, if anyone has a minute could you take a look at my random quote generator? :D I believe it's done! It's the first project that I can put on my portfolio haha so I want to see if there's any suggestions on what I can improve on it?
thanks!
Kenzo Mendoza
@KenzoM
@khaduch thanks for the tip! I thought about doing that or when the user press the equal sign to evaluate the operation, it will first check if there are adjacents operator in the array

@KenzoM
On the side the note, I was not aware that JS had a String.eval() . That would made my code so much easier...
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
@Neotriz - you probably want to check it before you echo the character to the output - you don't want to have ----- in the display, so that would be a better time to check?
Kenzo Mendoza
@KenzoM
thats true
yeah that would make more sense rather than the user have to find out later that the input operation was incorrect

Hey everyone. I already submitted my weather app, and I went to go style it but when I clicked on the codepen link to my profile, I got a 404 error. Then I clicked on my pens, and got the same error. I was able to go through recent to find it, but then it didn't work. I havent' changed any of the code that I submitted, and when I submitted it, it was fully functional. Does it work for any of you guys?

@aidansven Hi Ethan. Really cool quote generator! I would only change one thing. Can you make the button stay fixed in a place regardless of how many lines a quote has? I think it's better UX if I don't have to chase the button. ;)
Ethan Rose
@ethanrose
the whole page is loading for me, just not the weather
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
@aidansven - great looking quote app! Some of the lighter colors are a little hard on the eyes, maybe reversing the color setup to put a dark quote box on the light background would help that? But it's not too bad of an effect anyway. Nice work!
Ethan Rose
@ethanrose
@karolinaKluz ah yes..! good point! ;) thank you

@aidansven Yeah, that's the default message and the weather part isn't working. I'm wondering if it is a codepen thing with the whole 404 error. It kinda sucks, but whatever.
