Learn JavaScript The Hard Way

This is the project you can follow from the live streams as I develop the website for the course. I initially started this using the awesome Bulma Templates at and will place the code after each live session here.


Thu Feb 6 10:58:22 EST 2020 Managed to get the CORS worked out with mailtrain. Wow CORS is garbage. Ditched cors and mailtrain widget. No point really.

Sun Feb 9 09:58:20 EST 2020 Setup initial Sapper configuration to start working on the site for real.

Tue Feb 11 06:00:02 EST 2020 Sapper is working good. Configured a monochromne bulma theme. Got testing to work with jest and puppeteer.

Wed Feb 12 07:15:02 EST 2020 Figured out session work sort of in sapper, but I need to go through the RealWorld code to confirm. I can setup a cookie-session, and that is attached to req.session. Then I add a {session:} to the sapper middleware that sets this based on the req.session.views setting. Kind of convoluted so I suspect I'll find out more in the RealWorld app, but it does work. I also need to review the reactive $ variables in svelte because I forgot about that.

Mon Feb 17 12:32:58 EST 2020 I have a basic auth working off rethinkdb and kue, but I....don't know how to set it in a session? Rethink has some bad design decisions so I most likely will jump off it soon. Got the logins working. Sessions weren't saving because I set response/status before setting the session.

Tue Feb 18 07:21:16 EST 2020 Adding in PM2 and testing and locking this down tight before working on the UI more. Removed RethinkDB and went back to ArangoDB. I like it, but it's also just easy to manage.

Wed Feb 19 21:15:22 EST 2020 Found out to reconcile the commonjs vs. es6 modules. I'll eventually have to move that out. Added pino logging and got the web logs coming through. It's very busy though. Got a full test case for the one UI I have working, and it runs automatically.

Sat Feb 22 13:40:30 EST 2020 Cleaned up the design and slimmed it down significantly using Spectre.css. Got logins mostly working, tested, and added registration. Took the blogging example from Sapper and modified it slightly. Needs more.

Mon Feb 24 11:32:09 EST 2020 Managed to clean up the design, code, and many other things, then get logins/registration mostly working. Imported the Spectre.css directly into this project so I can rapidly work on modifying it.

Wed Mar 4 16:37:50 EST 2020 Quite a lot of the design is refined and the development process is much smoother. Close to throwing it on the internet and seeing how it goes.
