Questions about an offer I got to build a website

webdev: reddit for web developers - 29 min 34 sec ago

I have gotten an offer to make a website for a company that has the ability to do online booking. I was just wondering how much work would you guys think it would require to make something like this? I am currently working full-time as a dev and I do not want to take on something that might take too much time. If its something that could be done on a part-time basis, I should be able to do it. Thanks!

[Showoff Saturday] Projects I've made while learning on my own.

webdev: reddit for web developers - 1 hour 16 min ago

Hey all, I've been learning web development off/on for about a year. I'm looking to eventually get started at a junior role in NYC. Here are the four biggest projects I've made so far:

  1. Steam Analyzer - Analyzes your steam library
  2. WineFan - A mockup brochure type site
  3. Bill-Splitter - Helps you split large bills between people
  4. Meal-Planner - Plans a week of meals, has a shopping list, and searches recipes by ingredient/name

All of them are made with HTML, CSS (one with Bootstrap), and JS. I want to learn more about server-side technologies (Node, Express) and frameworks (React/Angular). I also need to make a portfolio site that links to all of my projects.

It would be awesome to get some feedback on my projects, as well as any advice moving forward. I'm very eager to learn, I've already done 4 online classes (CS50/Udemy) but I started to build projects to aid the learning process. I'm also eager to apply, but don't want to start the process until I have a solid base as a self-taught developer.

Thanks for your time!

[Showoff Saturday] Progress on my first real full stack web app. Looking for tips that you could have used when you started your first app

webdev: reddit for web developers - 1 hour 30 min ago


Since its [Showoff Saturday] I wanted to use it to "showcase" the progress on my first big real full stack app. I've done other projects before like weather apps, nutrition trackers, etc. But there were only front end and used for learning thing like React, and I didn't connect them to a database.

I have developed a real android application with a backend, that can be used by a company, but its not web, and i could have done things better and its an amateur project overall.

So, since I graduated last may, and want to get into webdev and looking to finally start my career, I've been working on real projects to get skilled and experienced enough to be able to land a real web dev job (hopefully sooner rather than later)...


The main idea behind the app was for me to build a full stack app, and to learn, (redux/nodejs)... but finding a meaning, I thought of small businesses. Many local businesses are pen and paper and don't have IT solutions (one example was the android app I made for).

The most needed thing for small businesses is a transition from paper to technology However, big Microsoft technology bundles and solutions may be too expensive, over their head, and offer too much. So the application offers a simple way for the small businesses like bakeries, tailors, barbers, etc. to track their orders and keep track of the details and forget the post-it notes they write all the call-in orders on.

It would be with them wherever they go. If they are out of office, and get a call about an inquery, they just pull out their phone and log it in. But this is just stage one of what I want to do with it as a project.


  • ReactJS
  • Redux
  • SASS
  • MySQL
  • NodeJS

So I'm looking for tips and advance on what I have so far. Is it a good direction and start to a project? Does the front end have a solid UI? Maybe there is one big feature I didn't even mention in the brief description. Obviously its just days started, so login, back end integration, and front end user interaction is not done. However, you can see the design, and interactions that would exist.

Maybe if I add one thing that makes it really unique it would be even better, but I haven't thought of anything yet.

I decided to use NodeJS because I've used PHP before and believe that learning Node would be beneficial and maybe I would use it more in the future. Perhaps that's a bad idea?

Web Dev and schooling

webdev: reddit for web developers - 1 hour 31 min ago

hi, i'm not sure if this the right subreddit to ask this question, but I have looked into computer programming and most colleges offer 2 year. I know that for the 4 year, I'll have to take computer science, but i'm not into computer science and the hardware parts and all that external and internal things about computer. Just programming. Will employers accept if I got a 2 year diploma?

How should I teach someone about Web Development?

webdev: reddit for web developers - 2 hours 21 min ago

Hello everyone, in about a month I'm supposed to hold a class to a group of students where I should teach the basics of Web Development. I think I will have about 2x4 hours of classes.

I was thinking about teaching them about pure basics of web development, along with a theory introduction(html,css,js, frameworks, libraries, servers etc...) but after that I plan on teaching them with a project. Something not too advanced but not too basic. Like using an API and stuff like that.

So, what do you think the project should consist of? Looking forward to your repiles.

How do you get an overview over a new environment

webdev: reddit for web developers - 2 hours 31 min ago


I recently got hired as beeing the lone webdeveloper and only IT guy of a bigger ecommerce project (which has no documentation or code comments while not having deleted obsolete stuff for like 5 years...), while having only worked as QA / TecSup before. So my exp is limited.

So I thought you guys might give me some tipps.

Now the project is somewhat unique in that my predecessor has added all missing or not accessible functions from the ERP system as new modules to the ecommerce web cms.

After a few month getting to know the system and having fixed a lot of bugs which were caused due to a last week major update of the ecommerce cms over 2 past major releases, which my predessor did before leaving the comp. While figuring out how web development works. I think the system runs somewhat stable.

Now my boss has already wrote me a bucketlist of like a 100 things he would like to have added or changed in the system.

Because I am still new to this developing thingy and since I assess the environment as rather complex, I would like to know what you guys are doing to get a better overview over such a systems.

Since I worked a lot with big SQL db´s in the past, I always like the db schema kind of overview.

I thought about creating something similar for all the modules currently working and with what data they interact and how.

Does this makes sense and what would you do?

Showoff/Feedback Saturday: A new approach to web APIs for finance data

webdev: reddit for web developers - 2 hours 36 min ago

Hi guys, we’ve previously posted on reddit about https://bravos.co, our replacement for Google Finance, and a top-requested feature has been easy integration into spreadsheets. Many users told us they want the ability to easily download bulk data, as well as access data in Google Sheets.

We’ve been thinking a lot about how to offer this data access in a way that is intuitive, fast, and powerful, and we’re trying a different approach that we would love to get your thoughts on.

We’re sticking to several principles:

  1. Any page with data can be accessed via spreadsheet integration or API - if you go to pages like https://bravos.co/dbx or https://bravos.co/startups, you can click on the wrench icon (in the upper right corner) to see the importdata function / download link. Other pages feature this wrench as well.
  2. Documentation is designed right in the page, so the description, parameters, data returned is always close-at-hand.
  3. You are automatically assigned an API key when you create an account (https://bravos.co/a/login) - which is then pre-populated whenever you seen an endpoint

Please do check out the spreadsheet integrations and APIs and let us know your thoughts! Full documentation can be seen here: https://bravos.co/a/data

ServerSide Google's OAuth authentication

webdev: reddit for web developers - 2 hours 46 min ago

I'm trying to authenticate m users in my project.

What i was thinking of is that user will first register to the server. Then he will be able to login into the system with either email and password combination, or by his google account.

Before i proceed i want to clarity that I'm using nodejs as my back-end and Angular or Vuejs as my front-end (no rendering engine like mustache).

But the google documentation sucks, and I'm confused between several alternatives like: passport, this google auth library for nodejs, firebase and oauth.

I just need a method to validate my users in my back-end, and as long as i am able to do so in any way, i have no problem. I have tried implementing JWT for token based authentication on my own, but doing all by yourself kinda hard and not so secure. I also tried to implement express-session for session based authentication, but then my friend said only relying on sessions is not so secured and can easily be misused.

Sorry if this question is bad or repeated, i'm new to the field and trying to learn :)

Solo freelancers on /r/webdev - how many major projects are you currently juggling?

webdev: reddit for web developers - 2 hours 50 min ago

I have 10 major projects that I have worked on in some way in the last month. I'm mostly working on updates for two projects (one of which is module based and was originally seven different projects, five of which I made, so this feels like five separate projects in terms of juggling - I get separate requests for each module), five were small maintenance activities or minor bugs/features added (less than four hours each) and the last three made small steps towards the features being developed, but not enough time was spent on them. On one of those projects I work with one other developer, although we rarely interact, we just work on our own modules and co-ordinate integration. For most of these projects I work with a designer :)

I know that "major" projects is somewhat subjective, but by it I mean projects that are full systems, live or in active development, where users can probably login and do whatever stuff they need to do. Something that is more than just a basic wordpress install, or five page website, and where your responsibility is more than just updating content.

Uploading on Host problem

webdev: reddit for web developers - 4 hours 10 min ago

Hello guys,

So last few weeks I have been working on my first freelance gig. Through time I learned a lot mistakes I did, mostly not having strict points what goes into price and how much can client change his mind... So it was the case that he, when I was 85% done, decided that he wants to be able to edit site completely. Unfortunately I said him that's not possible at the moment but suggested to build blog in WordPress that would be connected with his website.

Now when I'm finished I don't know how to host both and add blog to domain like www.domain.com/blog

If you have any tip I would be more than thankful

[Showoff Saturday] Finally published my Personal website

webdev: reddit for web developers - 4 hours 13 min ago


Tell me what are your thoughts on it. You guys are my first batch of beta testers :D

I'll be including this site on my resume to be sent to employers if I ever want to find a new job in the future.

It's not exactly complete, but I figure it'll be alright since there's still a modest amount of content.

You can download Front End Masters courses for free this week using this npm package!

webdev: reddit for web developers - 4 hours 19 min ago

You can make a free account and get access to all their courses this week. Just follow the instructions on the [NPM package](https://www.npmjs.com/package/frontend-master-downloader). I just tested it, and it work’s like a charm

You can also use this chrome extension to download them if the npm package doesn’t work for you. I just tested it:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrono-download-manager/mciiogijehkdemklbdcbfkefimifhecnDon’t forget to download ChromeDriver if you don’t have it installed http://chromedriver.chromium.org/downloads

When using Chrono, what I do is I click one video, then the next, then the next. Once I see the video load up I click on the next one. Then from there I can click Chrono after every video was opened. Go to the video tab. Select all of them and then download all the Webms.

Best LMS for Maths

webdev: reddit for web developers - 4 hours 45 min ago

I guys,

a friend of mine has a math tutoring center and he asked me to create a learning platform for him. After searching a little bit on the web, I found out that moodle does exactly what he wanted so I tried to implement a moodle platform. The thing is, moodle system and moodle interface look a little bit old even after some customization.

Do you guys know any good LMS that can be used with math?

(Sorry for my bad English)
