Hey everyone! Hope all is well in Node-land. I just finished up a little project this weekend that I wanted to share. It's a cocktail manager app for keeping track of my growing list of tasty adult beverages. Not currently using any MVC frameworks, just jQuery, but after cleaning everything up, my plan is to try them all out in different branches.

https://github.com/joshcanhelp/cocktail-manager

Feedback, questions, pull requests, issues, and stars are all welcome!

I also parsed out all of our homework and reading links from the class into a MD file in case anyone needs a reference. I added a few supplementary ones that I found helpful as well:

Hey Josh, I had to manually install jade and cookie-parser, so maybe drop those into the package.json?

I like it a lot. Needs much more/better docs but an interesting way to write HTML
Not everyone is a fan though

I'll say that there were a few things where I was like "WTAF" but, for the most part, I really liked it. That combined with Sass feels like a very easy way to bang out HTML + CSS

The problem I have with jade is it makes it more difficult for anyone who’s not a node developer to work on your front end.
plus spaces have sytantic meaning and I hate that shit

I still need to take the Sass class
Also - Josh - you should pipe in google images based on the names of the drinks amirite?

Sass is super-easy if you know basic CSS. Just read the docs and you'll get it.

RE: images ... might be interesting! Maybe also include an image upload option but that's later. Really just wanted to have some way to manage and organize my own, figured OSS would be a nice way to share

or even smoother "click to take picture"
on another topic, has anyone used Parse yet?
I'm probably going to be working at Hacker Coding Academy here and there and they use it
as backend as a service/hosting?
