Today I Learned

TIL, 2018-03-08


  • I have a better strategy now re: learning React for reals. I put money in it by spending money on a book (fullstackreact). Now, I’m pretty much forced to read it. Plus I really want to make a front-end for daryllxd anyway.
  • Can I put database versions in git?
    • Just make copies of the database if I’m introducing schema changes. Dev databases should be small.
    • Take a database dump, and version control that instead. That way it is a flat text file.
    • Keep both a data dump and a schema dump?
  • Where to store SQLite Database file?
    • Store the words using a text format, and build a database during the build. Instead of storing the information in binary format and storing the binary file in the version control, keep the pairs in a CSV file. This allows you to easily change it, commit the changes, and later diff the changes with ease.
  • Removing stuff on Github: I don’t think there’s an easy way to do this.
  • Browsed Some Game of Life things. Wow those are like really awesome.

ReactJS Musings

  • Read an article on this.
  • Event lifecycle.
