    running into my own css issue right now
    major pain in the ass
    can’t get two spans to sit one above the other to the right side of a div, all inside another div
    it. just. won’t. work. :rage:
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    why do you want spans and not divs?
    it sounds like you want something blockline @SimplyPhy
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yup tried that
    like 18 times
    i could make them divs i guess, but i don’t know if that’ll help
    display value seems like it can be anything, and no good
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    if you still can't get it, toss it in a pen or send me the code and I'll peek.
    If you are using gulp, you could tunnel it and sent a link as well.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    hmm, changing them to divs and floating the original nested div left worked
    i don’t always tunnel, but when i do i gulp

    sounds dirty?
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy

    @Lilyheart idk if you've stalked yet, but that's totally fine! :P I don't have much Rails on there, but feel free to check out the 3 I have up. just follwing Hartl's tutorial book
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    xD I followed you :p
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @Lilyheart I might've stalked your repos a bit too :P what are you using for models? Node?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    on yelpcamp? That's in a MEN stack. MongoDB, Express and Node.
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @Lilyheart and React instead of Angular? or are you only using MEN?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Only MEN
    I've not touched react not angular.

    I really should learn that stack, but for now I just know Rails and what's taught in FCC's front-end course
    I really don't like JavaScript in general. the language itself is nice, I just don't like how many different frameworks there are. it's so much to keep track of. I learned a bit of React and tried to learn Node, I just really don't like it
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If you saw yelpcamp live, in the footer it has a link to the udemy course I wrote it with. It was like the "capstone"project.
    Did you see the article I posted in chat earlier? :laughing:
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    I actually saw the same article on Reddit earlier and it accurately describes my experience with JS (me being the clueless one)

    @Lilyheart
    It seems to be makin' the circut hard today. Even a teacher brought it up in class today

    @karpimpski
    I'll have to learn the MEAN stack at some point, I'm just very much not looking forward to it. how long did it take you to learn MEN?
    the MAIN thing I don't like about JavaScript packages is it just feels like it's holding on by a thread. every time I get deprecation errors and a few console errors with React apps. they seem to work, but it just seems to be poorly pieced together. admittedly that's probably my fault, but I just love how Rails is so much neater than JS packaging
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Only thing I've done in MEN is that repo. Lookin' at the commits it looks like the bulk of it was done in two weeks.
    But that was more or less full time.
    If you have a decent foundation in JS basics (nothing crazy), it's pretty simple.
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    I'd say I'm pretty good at vanilla JavaScript. the code itself doesn't seem hard, just getting started is what kinda made me turn to Rails. the community is fantastic and it's much easier to get going and actually start coding. plus, once you have back-end experience you can learn other back-end technologies a lot easier
    so I'm definitely moving onto MEAN eventually, but I'm happy I chose to focus on Ruby
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Well, that and at least a passing knowledge of database structure and a super basic understanding of HTTP requests. Don't really need to know anything advanced to do super simple MEN.
    Here is my gist I used to take notes on all the syntax of things required. https://gist.github.com/Lilyheart/6e7613e17152052c8630ee85e34161b3
    Ugh, I wish that wasn't so big.
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    yeah, I know SQL as a language by itself and I've learned about HTTP. and what exactly is that? I have NPM installed on my computer, would I make an empty dir and run those commands to install express and MongoDB?
    can you use MySQL? I don't think it makes much of a difference, but that's my db of choice
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    looks like there are plenty of npm packages and such for it. https://www.npmjs.com/search?q=mysql
    as far as the code above, um.. not so much. But you could fork my yelpcamp and play around with it. you'll need to npm install. Running it live wouldn't work without a database to hook into tho.
    I linked the gist mostly because if you can read the code and kinda understand what is happening, then MEN will be super easy. But it should be easy regardless for you.
    If you go the route of forking my yelpcamp, I might even suggest going back to earlier commits and see how it evolved over time (if that make sense, checkout early commits and work down the line).
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    yeah like I said I already have NPM installed, as well as React and a few other packages. I'm not sure when I'll try to learn back-end JS, but when I do I'll definitely come here for help if that's okay. like I said the code really seems easy. a bit more verbose than Rails, but the same concept. I just want to focus on Rails (building a fully functioning Facebook clone soon!) and then learn other technologies so I'm more well rounded

    That's what we are here for \^^/
