On an ecommerce website I maintain, we started running into a strange issue where we were getting orders coming in with the first line of the address being duplicated in the “delivery instructions” field. This was causing all sorts of confusion and mild distress at the office. Today I finally persisted enough to get to the bottom of it. The form was something like this - try it out yourself to see if you also get the first line of your address appearing in the delivery instructions:
Last September I wrote a post detailing how I went about re-building this website with AngularJS backed by WordPress. That write-up was a high-level discussion on my choice of tools, design decisions, and lessons learned, rather than specific implementation details. The article proved to be one of the more popular I’ve written so far, and I’ve since received many requests to make the source code publicly available. In response to this interest, I decided to put together a bare-bones version of the code that is running this blog: angular-wordpress-seed.
A variable used in an Angular expression cannot contain a hyphen. This might be obvious to some, but this issue on one of my GitHub repos baffled me for a while, and the solution was really simple and now seems totally obvious to me. I’m making a public note of it so that I may save another frustrated developer a few minutes of hair-pulling. The Problem In brief, I have a directive that takes an id attribute and parses it with the $parse service.
This is a review of the book Responsive Web Design with AngularJS by Sandeep Kumar Patel. Disclosure: I was asked to review this book by the publisher, Packt, and they provided me with a copy of the ebook free of charge. The book can be found for purchase here. Responsive Web Design with AngularJS First Impressions The first thing that struck me about this book is the title.
In this post I will describe a way of using ES6 classes today in your AngularJS 1.x applications. This is intended more as an exploration than a recommendation of best practice. I’ll go into quite some detail about the reasoning and process behind my solution, but if you’d prefer to fast forward to the finale rather than enjoy the adventure, see the last section where I bring it all together, or go directly to the demo app repo.
Next week sees the close of my first year as an active participant on GitHub and in the open source community. I’d like to mark the occasion by collecting together a few thoughts on my experience thus far. At the beginning of this year I wrote about my decidedly shaky start in the world of professional software development in the essay Confessions of an Intermediate Programmer. For those who have read the sorry tale, it’ll come as little surprise that it was only fairly recently that I started using any kind of version control system.
I write this from a tiny apartment in Paris, sitting up in bed on a sleepy Friday morning after a crazy couple of days at the ngEurope conference. I would like to share a few thoughts and experiences about what I’ve seen and learned over the past couple of days. This isn’t going to be a purely technical blog post. I also won’t try to be comprehensive in covering all the talks.
