In this tutorial I am going to demonstrate how to build a JSON API using Ruby on Rails and then code a fully-functional React frontend to interact with the API. The app we’ll be building is an event manager, which will let you create and manage a list of academic events.
The app will showcase basic CRUD functionality and will add a couple of extra features, such as a datepicker and search.
GitHub actions is a feature which allows developers to construct workflows that run in response to various GitHub events. You can use them, for example, to run tests when a new pull request is received, post new issues to Slack, or publish a package to npm.
Previously, this kind of setup would have required a service such as Travis, or Circle CI. Actions however, are an official GitHub offering and give you first-class support for your automation needs.
In this tutorial, I’ll demonstrate how to leverage Vue’s reactivity to build a filterable table. This will only display the rows that match whatever text a user has entered into a text input. I’ll also show you how to highlight the matches.
This might be useful to help users quickly find what they are looking for in a long table. Once you have understood how it works, you can easily adapt it to lists or anything else you need to filter.
In this post I’ll show you how to install Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (Bionic Beaver) on Oracle’s VirtualBox. I’ll also demonstrate how to connect to the Ubuntu instance via SSH. This will form the basis for a second tutorial that will walk through installing and configuring Ruby on Rails on an Ubuntu server.
In this article, I’m going to demonstrate how to get up and running with NodeGUI. We’ll set up a development environment, take a look at several of the library’s basic concepts, then finish off by creating a simple password generator app.
I have an old Sony XPeria S phone (from 2012) which has long since been abandoned by my carrier. It no longer receives any updates and is stuck on Android 4.2, which kinda sucks….
So I decided to take matters into my own hands and get an up-to-date version of Android, by flashing the phone with a custom ROM. While this didn’t prove to be that difficult, I did hit a few stumbling blocks along the way, which I wanted to document.
This post will serve two purposes. Firstly, it will provide detailed instructions on how to install a custom ROM on an Xperia S. Secondly, it will also outline the general process of flashing an old Android phone and offer a high-level overview of the concepts involved.
