Despite Syndicode votes for Ruby as the main technology for creating various web applications, we must confess, that we always monitor all the latest tools and ways for improving modern development. That is how we found Capacitor. Capacitor is a cross-platform API to write modern web apps and make it easy to build web apps that run natively on iOS, Android, Electron, and the web.
Hurray! New Rails digest arrived at the beginning of winter. It is likely, you heard of some open source projects, we share today, before. But it is also for sure, that some other of them from this list is a surprise for you. The worst thing about software development that you can’t use all of the cool tools you know. But more you know – the better solution you can find in future. In this ‘Monthly trending Ruby on Rails repositories. December, 5’ digest you will meet error monitoring for Rails, Vue on Rails gem, publishing framework, DB schema managing tool, carpooling platform, Vim config for Rails and many other awesome repositories!
If you want to work with exceptional professionals to deliver world-class software – Syndicode is looking for a Markup developer! Use your opportunity to become a valuable part of our growing team at Kyiv/Dnipro!
What you learn as a frontend developer? In past, there were HTML, CSS, JS… and now? What can you say about frontend developers nowadays?
Recently we made a post with Google Cloud and AWS comparison. But we promised to include there Microsoft Azure. While we’re still working on that you might enjoy the example of creating a serverless API using Microsoft Azure. What if you want or need to make your own API? Serverless can help create a nice one for data you’d like to expose for use. Here we’ll be able to create an API in a few button clicks, with minor modifications.
Nobody is perfect. And you too. And your code, project, commit etc. The only way to find out the how you rate what you did is the level how happy you are with it. The same thing happening with bad evaluations. Who are they, those experts who can tell you that your contribution (you have spent several months to complete) is a disaster? All the opinions are subjective. So relax and enjoy your lovely long-created ‘disaster’. And make it better next time, please. p.s. Our ‘ Syndicode Digest #67 – Imperfect aftermath’ is not perfect too! But so good!
Editing the article by Vadim Tsvid about Ruby on Rails and DataTables plug-in we again encountered our main article-design-problem – the code. Because when you try to make the code visible in your article in a relevant way, you want to take less effort and not editing every single line of it. Especially if you have up to a hundred code lines in a single tutorial! Vadim created great posts, but we know that the code could be presented better: with the color, highlights and so on. We could have been using CodePen for that, but it doesn’t support Ruby… That is why today we decided to write about 19 CodePen modern analogs! That somehow could help us with presenting our frontend and backend code in the future articles. We know that most of them neither support Ruby by now, but we have to find out as many good CodePen alternatives as we can.
In the previous part of this tutorial, we did an overview of DataTables plug-in and its main features. As you have already learned with DataTables, your static table instantly gets pagination, sorting by columns and search. After the table is initialized, all the things including the search work fast and smooth.
