I came across #100daysofcode on Twitter. I thought it was a cool idea https://github.com/kallaway/100-days-of-code/blob/master/log.md
This website/app in intended for use in goal setting, tracking things that matter, preparing for appoinments, goals, living my best life. The site has a front end and a back end built on Rails, with a combo HTML/ERB and React.js front end. It is running on a DigitalOcean droplet with a PostgreSql database. Right now, I have quite a few things set up that I am building in bits and pieces. For example, I have Devise, Rolify and Pundit set up to maintain access and privacy and google calendar all in progress.
Today's Progress: TBD
Today's Progress: Success, I got my react.js navbar with a user data. I have to do a review/dive into react links. I also have some butt ugly styling so more CSS and JS to look through (template) Something for tomorrow.
Thoughts: Try to end on a successful point. If not, regroup and set up the tasks for tomorrow.
Today's Progress: Got it, I have a current user avatar and name. Will stop while I am ahead.
Thoughts: Try to close on a positive note. Not every day is productive, but I need today to be.
Today's Progress: Spun my wheels like crazy. Went back to react-rails gem and followed read.me, missing a line in my app.js "require react". Back to it.
Thoughts:Insanity is doing the same thing over an over again. A cup of tea or something soothing and sit start step 1 and onward.
Today's Progress: Managed to learn how to put props into react and get current_user. Spun my wheels abit between API and using Sprockets. Patients and console messages helped.
Thoughts: Not all blog tutorials are alike. After following one, I backed it out with github. It's all about the learning.
Today's Progress: Figured out React Router in context of parent child pages. Stuck on getting current_user data.
Thoughts: React is fun but I seem to get stuck when it comes to getting data from the back end. It's much easier to use a link in ERB with Rails. I found a tutorial on Rails, Webpack, and React, will give it a try.
