Sending an email from a gmail account

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 17:52

I have a personal/resume website and I would like to have an option to email users a pdf version of my cv from my gmail account.

The website is currently hosted through GitHub, and I don't really have any backend experience or anything currently setup with the website beyond html/css/js.

Could anyone point me in the right direction of how to get this done?

I would really prefer this over simply being able to download the file.

If anyone could help point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!

BigPipe or Front End JS?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 17:12

Hello,

We have some dynamic content we are going to be serving up based off of geo location. We want to be able to also cache the page using Varnish so it led me into exploring options of getting data after the page is rendered. I have narrowed the choices down to either using a front end JS framework to gather the data from an Controller end point (Vuejs or React) or attempting to use BigPipe instead. After researching it appears BigPipe needs a session created to serve up data to anonymous users (unless i'm reading that incorrectly). Does this mean it would not work with the Varnish caching?

Cloning Functionality Question

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 16:00

I am not a web developer so I apologize if I get some dev verbage incorrect =). I have seen that you can purchase cms or script clone websites, which copies the primary functionality of the website and then you of course lay over your own design.
I wanted to find a way to do this with an existing e signature website and was wondering if anyone knew of how I can go about doing this? Is there a service or budget oriented way to do this?

Hacked website through session_inc variable?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 15:47

Have a drupal 7 site that missed its updates a few months back, and have discovered a file in the files folder with base64 encoded php and the session_inc variable in the database was set to point to this file, instead of whatever it normally is.

What should I do to fix this? I've already removed the files that I believe were used to inject this, and all that's left are this file and the database variable pointing to this file.

Need some insight into best AWS for client site development but not hosting.

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 15:16

Hey all,

I'm trying to setup a AWS environment—one because I'm sick of using Namecheap and cPanel and two because I think it'll help better my skills and allow more flexibility down the road—and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what services I should use? Most of my projects at Wordpress based but I want to dive into MEAN/MERN development in the future. I'm also no opposed to hosting a couple sites, just most of my projects are web design related, not hosting related.

I set up a Lightsail server for Wordpress, got access to it via SFTP and I see that they have phpmyadmin and a very basic database. I also saw that AWS lets you create and manage databases on their RDS service.

I was wondering if anyone had any experience using both of these and which one you think is best? Does Lightsail let you create multiple databases and manage them in phpmyadmin or is it best to just host the sites on Lightsail then connect them to the databases hosted on RDS. Then manage those databases through some 3rd party program like Workbench?

Responsive Email Templates

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 15:14

Hey All,

Haven't done any email templating in a while and the last time I did I was using Zurb as a jumping off point. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on any new developments in this area. Is Zurb still the best place to start? Are there any other time saving resources you know of? I searched through the subreddit and the posts I found were all from 3 years ago so I figured it was worth while to reach out. Thanks in advance!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday.

Standard/recommended certifications

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 14:52

Hi everyone, not positive if this kind of post is allowed, just let me know if not and I’ll promptly remove.

I am a 20 year old with a strong interest in tech, and some experience with web development. I’m proficient with css and html, know my way around Wordpress and have worked with drupal, and am a fast and effective learner.

What I’m wondering is where I should go to my dev skills certified to put on my resume. Please let me know if you think I’m approaching this wrong and point me in the right direction.

Thanks for your time everyone.

How would you create a 'content wheel'?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 14:19

I've been asked if I could create an 'interactive content wheel'. After sitting down with some people, I have figured out that they just want a fancy looking 'wheel' element that has images on it that are hyperlinked.

I drew this mock-up

Link to Mockup

I'm trying to think about how I could create this. My initial thought was to see if I could use ChartJS and use their stacked donut chart.

Chartjs Example

But as far as I can tell, there is no way to put an image in each section of the donut.

My second idea is just to do this with SVG.

I'm obviously still in the brainstorming part of this but any kind of suggestions or guidance regarding how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated.

Issue with Panoramic Image Sliding in Edge

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 14:06

Hi guys,

First, thanks to any and all in advance for any input or help. Your time is appreciated.

Notes:

  • Edge at desktop sizes is the problem browser here.
  • I just ripped the relevant parts straight from the production site.
  • This functionality will not be available below 1024px so this probably won't work if you're checking it on your phone.

The intended functionality:

When a user moves their mouse left or right within the image, the image slides accordingly.

The problem functionality:

When a user moves his mouse left or right, the image slides, but jitters horribly. It looks as though the parts of the image that are overflowing either side of the <body> element are not rendered/painted until after those parts have moved to be within the body element. Meaning the container appears to be sliding properly and without jitters, but after it slides, the new area is transparent until the image renders. This might be making it look like the image is jittery, as either edge of the image is constantly being freshly painted?

One thing I've noticed, is that the mousemove event fires far more on Edge than it does in other browsers. Even firing well after the mouse has stopped moving. Could this be part of the problem?

Here is a code example: https://codepen.io/dms8/pen/ZMPMzE

I'm at a loss. What is actually happening here?

Best Services/Options for Web Scraping that requires javascript rendered?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 14:00

I have a need to use a web scraper that can parse javascript but am unsure what my best options are?

I do all of my scraping in PHP (7.2) and have relied on cURL and parsed the DOM that is returned. It's straightforward and pretty simple and has handled 99% of any web scraping that I've dealt with until all of the front-end frameworks started taking over.

I am extremely comfortable working with cURL for specifying headers, cookies, etc but am unsure if that is possible moving forward?

What are my options? Can I set up a dedicated box running node.js and call to it via a curl request and pass my headers/cookies along? Do I need to sign up for a service instead?

associates in web devel. Questions?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 12:44

Ive never posted in this thread so I apologize if this has been discussed before. I decided to pursue an associates degree in Website Development, i was originally looking to get an AA in computer science then a BA in IT but after realizing how much upper level math and economics was going to be involved i switched. i have some questions regarding this field. What programming languages should i learn other than html? If i were to work independently on developing websites, do i need to have a web designer that i work with? How would you say this job has changed in the last 5 years? Where do you see this field going in the next 10 years? What do you wish someone would have told you before starting a career in web develop.?

How do you guys design for IE?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 12:44

I just "finished" my portfolio site. Looks great in Chrome but terrrrrible in IE (forgot a few -ms-grid-* and having major trouble with SVGs). Working on fixing it now.

I know the design trend is to do mobile-first, but do you also do IE-first? Do you check it in IE along the way or typically just fix it all up at the end?

Recommendation for website landing page templates references?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 12:43

Hi guys, I just started self learning web dev (front-end development) and wanted to build my own website, starting with a landing page. The company is about providing engineering / consulting services to clients. I wanted to practice my skills and also try to build something useful.

I was wondering if people can recommend me some popular repository for free (or paid if it is really worth) landing page templates I can grab the HTML / CSS / React codes for so I can tweak and start from there?

I will probably take the HTML CSS code and turn it into React as I am learning ReactJS at the moment. Any other beginner comments are also welcome! Looking forward to it.

Changing my domain name after almost 13 years, anything I should be cautious of?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 12:00

Firstly, even though I have a website for 13 years, I know very little about coding. However I can follow instructions if they're clear enough for a beginner.

I've recently acquired a very good domain name. (Think of it like this, my old domain was something like moseisleycantina.org , now I have something like starwars.com) So, changing my domain name is a must for me, a simple redirect would be waste of a great name.

The website has a wordpress blog, and a phpBB forum (both of them have thousands of posts).

Also, I have a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an Instagram account, a Twitch.tv channel, a YouTube channel and a Steam group; all of them have good amount of followers/subscribers and have the same name as my old website name.

I have 3 questions:

1- How do I change my domain name and make my old domain name redirect to the new one? Which procedures I need to follow? Should I be cautious of anything? (Like Google SEO, broken links etc.)

2- Social media accounts. Should I be cautious of anything before I rename them? (And can I rename them all? I'm not sure about Facebook and YouTube.) I don't want to start over, because like I said they all have good amount of followers.

3- I don't want my old visitors to think that my website is gone and now it only redirects to a bigger/another website. Any design or marketing advice you can give me about this?

I really need all the advices you can give me.

Thanks in advance.
