    1. I’m gonna use Node!

      Reality: this has a lot to do with the problems here.

      Remedy: ignore the NodeJS toolchain bullshit[1], rip out the thing you're interested in, and stuff it into an ordinary page foo.hmtl.

    1. To run it you need node.js installed, and from the command line run npm install once inside that directory to install the library dependencies. Then node run.js <yourExportedDirectory>

      Why require Node?

      Everything that this script does could be better accomplished (read: be made more accessible to a wider audience) if it weren't implemented by programming against NodeJS's non-standard APIs and it were meant to run in the browser instead.

    1. Here’s a super rough proof of concept Replit tiny library.

      There's nothing about this that requires Replit (or NodeJS, for that matter). The whole thing can be achieved by writing a program to run on the script engine that everyone already has access to—the one in the browser. No servers required.

    1. Currently you need to have Node and npm installed on your machine once this is done you can use it with the following command

      There's no real reason why Node/NPM should be required for this. You could dump the logic into a bookworms.html file and run it in the JS runtime that's already on someone's machine (their Web browser)...

    1. These tests should be isolated as much as possible. For example, model methods that don’t do anything with the database shouldn’t need a DB record. Classes that don’t need database records should use stubs/doubles as much as possible.
    1. A common cause of a large number of created factories is factory cascades, which result when factories create and recreate associations.
    2. :js is particularly important to avoid. This must only be used if the feature test requires JavaScript reactivity in the browser. Using a headless browser is much slower than parsing the HTML response from the app.
    3. Use Factory Doctor to find cases where database persistence is not needed in a given test.
    1. Critical to the acceptance of the position of the script subtag was the inclusion of information in the registry to make clear the need to avoid script subtags except where they add useful distinguishing information. Thus, the registry entry for the language subtag "en" (English) has a field called "Suppress-Script" indicating that the script subtag "Latn" should be avoided with that language, since virtually all English documents use the Latin script.

      • not necessary to say/write
      • useless information

    1. Is a lawn roller necessary? It is spring, and I imagine the soil in your yard is lumpy because of the frost that occurred in the previous months. This is why you think a lawn roller is necessary. Well, unless you’re maintaining a golf course, I wouldn’t recommend a lawn roller. It just isn’t necessary.

    1. The great thing about working with reinteractive is you get to work directly with the developers, which is a huge plus. As a technical founder, I find proxying through a project manager adds unnecessary layers of complexity and creates opportunity for human error.

    1. Don't you hate to repeat yourself? For example, I hate working on anything related to user authentication or authorization that isn't directly related to the system I'm working on. I see it as necessary evil, an accidental complexity.
    1. The success of JSX has proved that the second curly is unnecessary. Moreover, a lot of people — particularly those who have been exposed to React — have a visceral negative reaction to double curlies, many of them assuming that it brings with it all the limitations of crusty old languages like Mustache and Handlebars, where you can't use arbitrary JavaScript in expressions.

    1. HTML code in an HTML document This is some sample HTML code that an author might use: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <p>This text is normal.</p> <p><b>This text is bold.</b></p> </body> </html> This is the same HTML code with the shortcode call-out applied. <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <p>This text is normal.</p> <p><b>This text is bold.</b></p> </body> </html>

      What is the point of this example? Do we need to include it? If so, there should be more explanation of why it it useful.
