Charts are everywhere. Infographics as ads, Medium statistics, YouTube stats, your workout statistics, and even your K/D ratio can be seen in charts. And if you’re developing an application with a dashboard, I am sure you will need a few charts for all kinds of statistics.
There are a lot of different charts, chart libraries, and ways to create charts. ChartJS is one of the biggest HTML5 / Canvas chart creation libraries out there. It features some nice charts, and nice personalization as well. And it's open source!
I will use a NextJS project as a React-based started webpage, but…
Your smartphone isn’t for entertainment only.
We all have phones on us right now. Some newer phones than others, but the majority is smartphones. And a big part of those smartphones is iPhones. We all carry and use these devices, but not everyone is using them to their full potential.
You can spend hours on Facebook or Instagram, but you can also use it for productivity, learning, and inspiration. There are apps for learning languages, programming, stock markets, and many more things. And a lot of apps to help you remind things, plan things and be more productive. …
Frameworks are used in almost every project nowadays. They can help with simple tasks or with the most complex tasks that you couldn’t even start to create. The use-cases range from mobile apps to web apps and progressive web apps and even desktop apps.
These frameworks aren’t the newest or might not achieve the greatest speeds or developer experience, but the communities are huge and backed by bigger companies so they will stick around for a while.
Frameworks achieve more things than some libraries or packages would, however, these terms are used interchangeably all the time. …
We all write a lot of code in our daily life. Sometimes we create huge applications and sometimes we spend our days writing code for simple functions that we might not have to program at all.
There are hundreds of thousands of libraries for all sorts of use cases, and using these packages can save a lot of time that you can use to be more productive.
In a nutshell.
I have seen the term ‘Micro Front-end’ a few times now and I didn’t really know what it was. So I went on a journey to find out exactly what it is.
The idea of the micro front-end is based on the thought that a web-application is based on a composition of features. All these features can be owned by separate teams that all have a different idea about the feature since they all have a different mission they care about.
The micro front-end idealogy features some core ideas. …
Easy cocktails with just three ingredients.
The art of mixology is a great hobby to have. But it can be expensive and time-consuming. Some cocktails require up to 10 ingredients and require several hours to prepare if you're counting Aviary cocktails. These cocktails however are easy to make at home with basic equipment and fairly basic ingredients.
I’ve done my research on the Mixel app and set the number of ingredients to three. Garnishes, while optional can make a cocktail taste different and sometimes better. But I will not count them towards the ingredient count.
Let’s get started with the…
Taking a good look at the Apple Ecosystem.
Since Apple has been taken over by Tim Cook, the Apple ecosystem has expanded by a few products. They have re-made and thrown out many ideas in the meanwhile. And even today, we have no clue what Apple might add and what they’re working on, we just know that it would probably be well done and well optimized for those with iPhones and Macs.
The current lineup roughly consists of the following items.
Well, in almost every project.
Building apps is pretty difficult for some developers. Especially if you’re a web developer and you need to program in Java or Swift. But thanks to React Native we don’t have to.
But a lot of connections between the…
Environment variables are used everywhere nowadays. Libraries such as dotenv help with achieving the same functionalities while bigger frameworks such as Next.js implement their own versions of dotenv.
.env file is a file used on your own system which contains keys for making API calls, database connection strings, and so on. But it is important that you would keep these safe for obvious reasons.
Most of the time, frameworks implement environment variables in roughly the same ways. So reading this article will still be useful for understanding the same principles that you could use in other projects.
Tables, lists, and more!
Styling components is hard enough already. Especially if you need to take branding, readability, and viewing data in perfect harmony. And while I am not the greatest designer or programmer, I would like to help those who may need inspiration for their own components or simply some easy-to-use components for their own applications.
I will try to keep my components simple, stylish, and easy-to-use. I will use a React-based framework for testing the components and their styling. Some property names will be slightly different because of this. They can be used independently of any framework. …
