Learned a neat little trick this morning for passing data between two different paths when using express in a node project. This came up when I was trying to figure out how I’d be able to return data that was retrieved during a form post and move back into the the main index page after redirect.
Continuing work on my side project/project needed for work, I ran into a situation where I needed to kick off a python script from an express and get the output back. Essentially I need python to run a selenium script for me and retrieve a specific piece of data after doing some login stuff. To my surprise, it was easier to get working that writing the selenium script.
Working on a side project tonight and ran into a problem that I’ve hit many times before: launching vscode from the command line. So many times I’ve wanted to just open a file or folder up in vscode from the command line, but have been too lazy to update my bash file to set it. Today I found out: there’s no need to do that.
I’ve come down with some kind of cold today, not really able to focus like I wanted to this morning. Very short lesson session before heading to lie down. Today was starting with single element selectors, more super basic stuff dealing with DOM items.
Not really feeling it today so I didn’t get as much done as I would have wanted to. A lot of my learning was project specific to work today, so unfortunately I can’t really share that information. Had a lot to do with security and how we handle users, which was actually pretty neat to learn about.
Still moving along with JS lessons. More review again today.
Still working my way through the basics/fundamentals sections of my JS course. Lots more review today, but I did pick up a few new methods/functions that I didn’t know about. Just like yesterday, here are my notes from my session today.
