@MWBauer visual studio is an editor for code - like microsoft word is an editor for documents
Visual studio lives on your computer with all of your code files
Marc
@MWBauer
oy.
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
codepen lives on an internet site with your code files
Marc
@MWBauer
I hate that Codepen doesn't allow me to use local image files.
if it does, I'm doing something wrong.

@khaduch had to do other tweaks to get it working and displaying correct but this is the final product gradient generator
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
It's really easy to get started using visual studio on your computer - just down load it and then export your codepen files to your machine.
Are you using pure javascript?
Marc
@MWBauer
I have d/l. I have it open. So just d/l codepen files and start working?
Pure?
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
are you writing just javascript? or es6? or react? or angular?
Marc
@MWBauer
So far as I know I'm not messing with anything else. Just the FCC and I've been walking through Deitel's Javascript for programmers book.

@mstellaluna
@MWBauer codepen doesn't allow you to upload files unless you pay for pro service. BUT you can use a service like postimage.io that's free, you can upload your imgs and it give you the direct HTML link to them

@MWBauer
thanks @mstellaluna

@mstellaluna
@MWBauer honestly its what I do for codepen, just postimage doesn't upload video files , images only
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
use the export button at the bottom of your codepen to download a zip of your codepen to your machine
it will download a zip of your codepen project and you can unzip it into a local subdirectory
Then you can start visual studio and open the local subdirectory
You will see all of the files for your project - to run it just open index.html in chrome
Marc
@MWBauer
thx @lisacopeland
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
no prob! After you get done editing your files you can try to create a github repo and commit the files!
Marc
@MWBauer
could someone take a look and help me figure out how to call the hr style?

@NJM8 when you complete projects, you submit them using codepen...

Hey guys any idea for library like this one https://simplemde.com , but that is editing html, i need to emebd some text editor for generating e-mails in website

@ndburrus yes but who looks at them.

@khaduch
@mstellaluna - I just tried the generator, and it works great now if you change the direction, but now if you change the colors (without changing the direction) the selection of the new colors doesn't automatically generate a new gradient with the new colors. You aren't passing the gradDir value for the color change events, so I think that it's just generating some garbage value? I haven't fully debugged it, but that's what I see going on there.
@MWBauer - I forget what we were talking about, but dev tools are really helpful. At the bottom of the "Map" on the freeCodeCamp dashboard there are some videos that cover (in brief) use of the Chrome browser devtools - maybe a helpful intro if you haven't seen them? And I'm sure that there are more in-depth videos or documents on how to use it.

@mstellaluna
@khaduch yea thats the next thing ibhad to figure out. I had several other bugs come up while getting the direction to work. Thanks for the suggesyion. Ill play around with it more.

@NJM8 i'm not sure who exactly reviews the projects... that's a good question. this just indicates that they are reviewed.

Hi,

  • I am new to js.
  • I am analysing a simple code.
  • not sure how it works.
  • for the first time this line console.log("alphabet--->" + alphabet); is printing undefined counts[alphabet]--->undefined
  • can you tell me why its printing undefined.
  • for the second time its printing 3 at this line console.log(counts[alphabet] + 1);
  • but it should print two right since 1+ 1.
  • can you guys explain so that in future I can fix it myself.
  • providing my code changes below.

var str = "aaabbccccddd";
var arr = str.split("");
var counts = {};
for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
    var alphabet = arr[i];
    console.log("alphabet--->" + alphabet);
        console.log("counts[alphabet]--->" + counts[alphabet]);

    if (counts[alphabet]) 
        {
            counts[alphabet] = counts[alphabet] + 1;
            console.log("inside if--->");
            //console.log("inside if--->" + counts[alphabet] + 1);
            console.log(counts[alphabet] + 1);
        }
    else
    { 
        counts[alphabet] = 1;
        console.log("inside else--->");
        console.log(counts[alphabet]);

        //console.log("inside else--->" + counts[alphabet] + 1);
    }
    //counts[alphabet] = counts[alphabet] ? counts[alphabet] + 1 : 1;
}

console.log('a: ' + counts['a'] + '\n b: ' + counts['b'] + '\n c: ' + counts['c'] + '\n d: ' + counts['d'])

output

alphabet--->a
counts[alphabet]--->undefined
inside else--->
1
alphabet--->a
counts[alphabet]--->1
inside if--->
3
alphabet--->a
counts[alphabet]--->2
inside if--->
4
alphabet--->b

inside else--->
1
alphabet--->b
counts[alphabet]--->1
inside if--->

alphabet--->c
counts[alphabet]--->undefined
inside else--->

alphabet--->c

inside if--->

counts[alphabet]--->undefined
inside else--->

alphabet--->d
counts[alphabet]--->1
inside if--->

alphabet--->d
counts[alphabet]--->2
inside if--->

a: 3

@NJM8
@ndburrus Thanks. That gives some insight, I just wasn't sure if there is more feedback on your work. I think with the new beta curriculum they are trying to implement some automatic testing plugins, I have seen those around, pretty cool.

@rajkumart08_twitter the first time it print undefined because that console log appears before you add the letter to the object, so there is nothing there so it returns undefined. It looks like your function is working as it should from the results

have a front end question
i found this code that does what i want it to do but i cant understand why it does what it does
here is a link to my codepen
