    1. This is a browser execution environment. It may provide additional built in objects exposed in the global namespace. It is a specialized execution environment which provides builtin capabilities beyond the base javascript language spec.
    2. Consider that the client environment as the special case as it exposes objects into the global space to provide certain features and limits others.

      Doesn't the server ever expose objects into the global space??

    1. If your only reason for using Axios is backward compatibility, you don’t really need an HTTP library. Instead, you can use fetch() with a polyfill like this to implement similar functionality on web browsers that do not support fetch(). To begin using the fetch polyfill, install it via npm command: npm install whatwg-fetch --save
    1. If you are using a JavaScript library, chances are it comes with a client HTTP API. jQuery’s $.ajax() function, for example, has been particularly popular with frontend developers. But as developers move away from such libraries in favor of native APIs, dedicated HTTP clients have emerged to fill the gap.

    1. Client<->Server API - defines how Matrix compatible clients communicate with Matrix homeservers. Server<->Server API - defines how Matrix homeservers exchange messages and synchronise history with each other.

      Given the data model (which allows merges) forkdb could be a close candidate to substitute a Client <-> Client API (also called peer to peer).

      Play with it.

    1. Mbembe points out that often thefunction of awarding infrastructural projects has far more to do with gaining access to governmentcontracts and rewarding patron-client networks than it has to do with their technical function.This is why roads disappear, factories are built but never operated, and bridges go to nowhere.

      Sounds like scheming for political gains.. This is easy to see in the work place or society when one befriends another or joins a certain group for political/hierarchal benefits rather than for the pure purpose of the action. African societies cannot be the only ones who follow these functional implementations of these infrastructural projects.

    1. the interface currently works quite slowly, much slower than regular web content.

      This may be browser-side speed. Most of the heavy lifting of the application is done in the client.
