    Hey guys. I had my personal website up and running. I had hosted it using AWS (free tier). I had not done anything else. I'm a complete noob coder, and I desperately need help with getting my website back, up and running. I have an intership interview coming up and I need to be able to show my work on the website. I tried googling all this, but all i get are results which dont make sense at all. Please help me out guys, I'm desperate. submitted by /u/Key-Kaleidoscope5077 [link] [comments]

  • Generate openApi clients for multiple BE microservices and FE
    by /u/NiPinga on June 17, 2021 at 6:04 am

    Hi all, So far our project is working nicely. We write openApi specs and then generrate the FE (angular) client as well as BE (java spring-boot). But now we are making a second microservice and we are running into problems: The new services/endpoints defined in the openapi spec generate their stuff in the same folder, and that seems to not work work BE. They now suggest putting it into different specs, but it seems that that would not work FE (I should just end up with one ApiModule, with all the services imported there, correct?) . How is this supposed to be done? Does anyone have tips or examples? I searched but only found "get-started" tutorials with one part BE one FE which is exactly what we already have. Any suggestions or tips ? submitted by /u/NiPinga [link] [comments]

  • I have a MYSQL db online and a react a frontend but lack the RESTful php api to communicate both. What can I do if I don't know anything about php and want to GET, POST, PUT and DELETE from the front...
    by /u/ccleivin on June 17, 2021 at 5:42 am

    I'm feeling a bit lost because all the solutions I see for doing this through PHP [Node.js the server does not read] are very crazy and I don't understand it very well. I was thinking that maybe there is some PHP boilerplate that I could use but I'm really struggling to find something. ​ Does anyone know about something that can help me? submitted by /u/ccleivin [link] [comments]

  • Reformat someone else’s webpage
    by /u/bryanthekiwi on June 17, 2021 at 4:09 am

    Noob question - we use a SaaS web application which doesn’t work well on mobile devices - it’s formatted for monitors. Is there a way to take in the website, reformat it for mobile and publish it out to a new URL? It is a form so needs to be able to send entered text back to the original site. submitted by /u/bryanthekiwi [link] [comments]

  • Is Instagram API deliberately obtuse?
    by /u/bozdoz on June 17, 2021 at 3:43 am

    For the life of me I can’t figure out how to query a user’s images based on their username. How is that not an obvious choice for a guide? Their website is exactly that: a query (URL path) of a username to display images. Any resources, tutorials? The best I’ve seen is gatsby’s Instagram source plugin but it seems to use scraping for other user’s and is now deprecated. submitted by /u/bozdoz [link] [comments]

  • AWS Training Wheels
    by /u/locallyhosted on June 17, 2021 at 3:37 am

    I was wondering if any of you know of a platform that can assist me when I create websites/ web apps on my AWS account? I want to create some dynamic landing pages to begin with using lambda functions, some kind of db (maybe mongo db), Cloudflare, and maybe in the future using API gateways. I find navigating through AWS extremely tedious and I end up getting side tracked by even simple things like ( in my case confusing things) like roles. I don't want to have a bunch of security issues right off the bat either. I would find a system that sets up a blank project (maybe a simple website) on AWS with all the required dependancies/ security and this would act as a foundation that I can build on top of. I can then push my frontend code to production on my own infrastructure. submitted by /u/locallyhosted [link] [comments]

  • I just realized that it's not about making my site fancy or wasting time on details. It's just about focusing on speed, responsiveness, and conversion rate.
    by /u/Ianteepeedood on June 17, 2021 at 3:01 am

    I keep getting lost in adding little things here or there on my portfolio site for my own ego and perfectionism but I keep forgetting the obvious fact that all that matters is that someone goes on the site and that I get conversions (a job, sale, client etc.). Page loading speed and simplicity matters a lot more. submitted by /u/Ianteepeedood [link] [comments]

  • Privacy Protection - Hosting Question
    by /u/thewaylifegoes444 on June 17, 2021 at 2:38 am

    Im new to owning my own website. I signed up with HostGator and within less than a day I started receiving phone calls, emails, and texts spamming me with solicitation. It was almost 10 calls a day some days. HostGator’s customer support informed me the only solution is to purchase Privacy Protection for $15 a year, per website. I would like to know if there is another way around this? Should I reconsider HostGator and use a different hosting website? Online I read its illegal to put fake information, so I set up a new email just for my hosting contact information, but I am unsure how to fix the phone call/texts situation. I am planning on making multiple websites simply for practice. As a broke college student, $15 a year for a domain that cost me $0.95 just isn’t something id like to fork over. submitted by /u/thewaylifegoes444 [link] [comments]

    building a Saas web app with react on the client side but unsure of what to do on the back end... my choices are obviously AWS, or firebase, or just creating my own back end with mongodb/nodejs/express I was wondering what would be the most cost effective choice and also most suitable for scaling for a SaaS app? going serverless cloud aka AWS or hosting your own server w/nodejs, and building ur own db? submitted by /u/Fast-Double2036 [link] [comments]

  • subtitle API help
    by /u/asmit2803 on June 17, 2021 at 2:00 am

    I made a custom music player. Then I thinked that it will be good if there will be subtitles too. So I need any good sites which can provide me subtitles to show on my site. 2nd question - Currently there are only 2 songs on my website. Can I use Spotify or something to get songs to play on my website. Suggest me a website which can provide me songs metadata like singer,albumyear etc. please help me with this. Any help will be appreciated. When I do google search there are so many options for this and some are paid ones so I am confused which one to use. So please suggest me things which are best at this and it will be good if they will be free. submitted by /u/asmit2803 [link] [comments]

  • Is there an issue if I use a wordpress template for a wordpress job?
    by /u/Ianteepeedood on June 17, 2021 at 1:33 am

    I'm making a accountant wordpress site for someone I know for free as practice because I want to get familiar with using wordpress and building sites for people (so hopefully I can do freelance). I just found a solid template that I can use and plugins to make the job easier. Is this "cheating"? As in, am I learning less by using this template and plugin or is that the whole point of wordpress in the first place? I only see myself adding some extra plugings, changing colour and words here or there, tailoring it a bit to his needs and then mostly being done. submitted by /u/Ianteepeedood [link] [comments]

  • iFrame Google Calendar getting "This content is blocked. Contact the site owner to fix the issue."
    by /u/pinkfrankenstein on June 17, 2021 at 1:14 am

    Here is the page in question, the password needed is "dogs" https://marvimon.com/test/ For some reason over the last 4-5 months, people going to this page get the "This content is blocked. Contact the site owner to fix the issue." The page is an iframe from Google that's used to embed a calendar. I think that security extensions in browsers are causing this. Oddly I can't find anyone else having this problem. So I'm not sure what's going on. Any ideas? submitted by /u/pinkfrankenstein [link] [comments]

  • Implementing Image Overlay / Dynamic Images
    by /u/spurious_proof on June 17, 2021 at 12:57 am

    I'm trying to clone some websites I've liked when I came across some trickery that I can't duplicate. I've seen this in a few places until I finally tried duplicating it myself. The best example I've seen so far is on State Street's website (exact example is here). Essentially, I'll see an image where only certain aspects of it move as you scroll - it's almost like an optical illusion. If you scroll down to the section towards the very bottom (titled "Outsourced Trading"). You can see the white lines on the left and right are moving. I also pasted an image of it at the bottom of this post. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how I can implement that? I tried inspecting the page, but the syntax was hard to decipher. All I know for sure is the background and the white lines are two different images. ​ https://preview.redd.it/pdli3qem4q571.png?width=2860&format=png&auto=webp&s=921c772e321e0c8d59758305753ddb80028afdb5 Thanks. submitted by /u/spurious_proof [link] [comments]

  • What to do when a freelance client doesn't pay?
    by /u/TechyDad on June 17, 2021 at 12:22 am

    I have this freelance client who I've been working with for years. I have two invoices that I've sent her (for weekly maintenance work that I do for her site). She's gone from promising to send a check soon, to saying she was sending one out, to not responding to any of my e-mails/texts. I don't want to ruin this business relationship, but there's a decent sized balance accumulating and a third invoice that will be generated in a couple of weeks. (I generate them ahead of time every 3 months.) I even relented on my insistence not to be paid via Paypal (because they take so much out in fees) just to get paid. What are my options? Do I cut off the maintenance activities until she pays? Do I continue to add to her bill and keep up the maintenance activities? What would you do in this situation? submitted by /u/TechyDad [link] [comments]

  • How to get access token in Spotify API ?

    I am creating a search function to search for tracks in Spotify. It's very simple but I don't know how to get the acces token and to refresh it every time it expires. It's all in here: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/general/guides/authorization-guide/ I am using Laravel. I already registered the app and got the client id and the client secret, but I don't know how to use them.

  • Is it worth buying a new laptop for Docker projects?
    by /u/URappletea on June 16, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    I recently got a new job that requires me to work on Docker. My laptop uses Windows which doesn't go well with it. Whenever I launch Docker, my computer becomes extremely slow, it could take minutes for a page to load or to view the changes I just made in my code. I tried some methods online like adding the development folder to the Windows Defender Exclusion list, but that wasn't very effective. The Docker is still intolerably slow. So here are some other solutions I thought of just to make the Docker development process faster: Buy a new laptop that could run Linux, because I heard Docker runs well on this OS Use dual-boot Linux and Windows on my pc. This is a low-budget solution I found online, but I'm not quite sure about it since someone mentioned dual-booting could slow down the laptop as well, which is clearly not what I wanted. I wonder which approach would be better in my situation? Or is there any other options maybe? submitted by /u/URappletea [link] [comments]

  • Mobile + Web best practices
    by /u/twozeroseven207 on June 16, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Have been stuck in the Angular world for awhile and just getting back into Mobile development.Just wondering what the consensus (if there is one) on a solution for an ipad friendly app that would also work in web. Background is we are looking to develop a solution for 400+ workers who survey commercial buildings - these workers are on the go 80% of the day on their feet surveying buildings. Native features needed are camera, location, accelerometer. Nice to haves : push notifications. The surveys get complex and therefore should be able to finished or modified via web for some write up post survey (and for QA, admin view). Options as i see it with limited research:- 2 solutions with common API / backend (Native Ipad app + Web app) - One PWA solution deployed on iOS via MDM and accessible via browser - Xamarin - one code base - deployed to 2 platforms (web? + native iOS) - Flutter - one code base - deployed to 2 platforms (web + native iOS) ​ Im sure there are lots of options for the last 2 but that is what i have done POCs with or atleast have some basic knowledge of. submitted by /u/twozeroseven207 [link] [comments]
