Why cPanel never evolved as a platform?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 04:55

Many web hosting companies are using cPanel as their core server/application management platform. When I first used it almost 5 to 6 years ago, it hasn't much evolved interms of convenience, flexibility, features, automation of different processes, interface etc.

What is the reason behind it?

Second, what are some alternatives to cPanel (companies) which has tried to do incremental innovation to cash-on to this opportunity? I see Plesk, Cloudways, Flywheel?

Is there a module a Drupal module that stores the title and alt fields for an image field in the database?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 04:24

Is there a Drupal module that stores image related fields like the title, alt, and display dimensions in the database?

I use image fields with the caption module and they only last during the period of editing.

My plugin got re-branded without my consent and sold on JVZoo

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 03:45

I sell plugins on CodeCanyon. One of my plugins (Newsomatic) was rebranded and sold on JVZoo without my consent, under the name NewsBuilder. It generated lots of sales, because the guy that made it had a large affiliate network.

Rebranded plugin: https://newsbuilder.io/

My plugin: https://codecanyon.net/item/newsomatic-automatic-news-post-generator-plugin-for-wordpress/20039739

What do you think of this? Is this nice from his part? :\

Beginner's Questions and Text RPG Project

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 02:23


I'm currently learning web development at school and I find it very enjoyable and exciting. Sadly, I can already see that we are using outdated stuff, no HTML5 at all and our schoolbooks are already six years all, so I believe a lot has changed since 2013.

As a self improvement, I'm currently working on simple text RPG made with HTML/CSS/JavaScript, which I want to improve with time, adding more and more. But since I have lack of solid basics, it's not going as smooth as I would like to, so my questions are:

  1. What sources could I use to learn and improve my webdev skills and which one will be the best and updated to meet today standards? Recently released books? Udemy courses? Free stuff online like W3Schools or CodeAcademy? Or maybe something else?
  2. Did I choose right languages for what I wish to create? Maybe I should also use something else, like Bootstrap, Node.js or Typescript? If yes, I would also like to know good source to learn from.

Thank you for your patience and have a good day.

Looking for the best Web Dev Tutorial / Course - for someone who doesn't understand the full stack

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/21/2018 - 01:02

Happy to pay. I basically am wanting something to make me understand the basics and how each part of the stack fits in, and why frameworks are needed (and what exactly are they?).

Ideally also looking for something that uses Angular and can guide me through making something useful.

Simple tutorial for creating a monthly subscription with Stripe and Node?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 23:39

Hi! I'm trying to integrate Stripe into my app, I want my users to enter a 30 day free trial period, and then subscribe to $10/mo plan. Can you recommend a good example or a tutorial that will walk me through the entire process?

I'm getting confused with all the steps required to create customer, store a payment method, create a subscription, etc, I'm afraid I'll do something wrong. Also I'm not sure how to deal with this in my User model - what would be the right way to store user's payment plan, etc.

I suspect that it shouldn't be very difficult, I'll figure it out eventually, but a good guide would still be very helpful.

Quitting my current Web-Dev Job to pursue privat education in PHP

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 23:01

I have beeing looking through the subreddit to find advice on how I should go on with my carrer but sadly I couldn't find a post that was similar to my situation so I would like to ask you: If I should quit my current Web-Dev Job to pursue privat education in PHP.

Sorry for the incoming wall of text...

A little information how I got to this point and what my thoughts are:

I have come into the field starting as a apprentice over the last three years for digital- and printdesign. In those years I realized that designing is not the field I want to work in but rather Web-Development. I have completed this apprenticeship about three months ago and now I am employed at this company as a Web-Developer. My Web-Development projects are jobs like creating small Company Websites with Kirby or TYPO3 (I have been doing this whilst in my apprenticeship too).

While creating these Websites I noticed that I like the Backend part of the web-Development. So I looked into the field of PHP Frameworks and created a small Inhouse Laravel CRUD App to help us manage some things. While doing this I found out that this is what I want to pursue. Currently I am sadly not experienced enough in this field to just land a Job.

Because of me not beeing experienced enough to just change jobs like that and other dissatisfaction criterias at my current job (wage, bad projectmanagement, having to do many non-development tasks, not learning new things, beeing the only developer, and so forth...), I have thought of quitting and concrentating on learning how to correcly be a Backend PHP Developer.

If there wouldn't be these dissatisfaction criterias I have listed above which make me hate going to my job every morning and make me angry when just thinking about having to go next day again, I would just learn Backend-Development after work and in my lunch breaks.

I have saved around 6000€ and I still live at home so I currently do not have to pay for things like rent. I have talked to my parents about this plan and they would have no problem if I would live at home for another year or so.

So I wanted to know from an outsider perspective how you think of my current situation and my plan. Any honest responses are heavily appreciated.


- 100% concentration for this

- Time to learn how to do something properly and not just in a way that "It just has to work in the end"

- Way more hours can be commited to learning in a day

- Not having to work for a company I dont like working for

- Financially I could manage a time of unemployment


- Might look bad in CV for future employers

- Easy to be distracted

- Might not find a job quickly after this period of time

- I live in germany so 3 months after quitting I wont receive money from my unemployment insurance for three months (after that I would get 60% of my last wage)

- Living off my parents longer (I am 21 years old)

Looking for a web developer...?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 21:25

Hey guys,

I have an idea I want to bring to life. Was wondering if maybe someone can help me narrow down who I am looking to hire. If anybody here is interested feel free to message me so we can get into details. Or if you guys think I should ask somewhere else please let me know. Here’s what I’m looking to do.

So basically i’m looking to hire a developer to make a beta version of a music marketing tool for musicians.

Similar to: https://linkfire.com https://linktr.ee/

I am an independent recording artist, producer and podcaster. I feel like the sites that offer the services could be better, so I want to solve my own problem.

I want to get a beta version up and running. The site would give users a landing page for each project that they are marketing so they can post in their social media bios and posts. each landing page would have widgets from different streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple, etc.) and open them when they tap. It is mobile focused.

That’s just my broad idea and have more specifics for it.

I made a job post on Upwork but not sure what specific web dev skills I am looking for in the person I am looking to hire. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Am I only looking for a web developer right now?

Any books I should read about this? lol

Thanks in advance!

Curious what libraries if any people are using to sort grids/tables

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 20:48

I was very recently working on a demo for possible employment and was encouraged to add bells and whistles, and so undertook sorting, and it wasn't especially difficult to write something that got me a good deal of the way there. I did google and didn't find anything especially compelling. Am wondering what members of this sub use for this task.

Looking for way for user to identify themselves, upload files, then supply metadata

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 20:24

Hello, I have a need for users to do three steps:

  1. Identify themselves (name, email, etc.)
  2. Upload a variable number of files (just a straight up drag and drop would be great)
  3. For each uploaded document, provide some metadata (file number, classification from a dropdown, etc.)

I'd like all of that to be stored in a DB of some kind and hopefully email each file to an admin account individually with both the identity info and the metadata (that account will do some other processing on them).

Edit: Don't need to save logins for the uploaders. Don't need to save the files after they're emailed.

Seems like there should be a way to do this through things like Office 365 Forms/Flow, Box, Google Forms, SmartSheet, ThinkSmart, or other tools like that. We have a working version that does one document at a time, but I'd like to offer a variable number.

Any suggestions? Or do I need to make a case for some actual development time?

Thanks in advance for any help!

How do those fake social media marketing sites work?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 20:14

I recently stumbled upon one of those fake social media marketing sites where you can buy Twitter followers, Instagram likes & YouTube plays. Was wondering how they actually accomplish this.

Curl request & spoofing IP? Or is there an army of Chinese child laborers keeping our social media delusions alive?

PSA: Make sure your account is secure on Udemy

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 20:10

I am sure like most of everyone here we have a library of Udemy courses we have purchased. I came home from work to see that my email was changed off of my google account to a clearly fake email. I can't even login. So if you use udemy check your email and account security.

TBH I have no idea how the hell they were able to change my email off of my google account without any security checks or authentication on udemy's side. They literally got in and changed my email and password. WTF

Facebook Automatic Alt Text

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 20:04

Did anyone else catch this?

Facebook has implemented an "automatic alt text generator" for images uploaded. It seems like it only works when the image youre looking at is in your Feed (so no videos or ads being generated).

Right click on image in your feed and go inside the element from a > div >img. You will see the alt text that was automatically generated.

I have seen it get incredibly specific to "Two People, Standing Up, Smiling, night, indoors"

Also lots of images arent loading now and just placing the alt text where the image is; which i assume is from them going down today.

Need Help With NestJS

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 19:51

Disclaimer: I'm pretty new to backend development

What is the correct way of filtering out fields from mongodb schema to send as a response?

I read the docs and there was not mentioned anything about what i need.

Right now I pass the mongodb object from the service to controller and then send it as a response.

One thing that came in mind was to create a class with the properties i want to send and map mongo object to the class and then send it.

So. Many. Frameworks. Critique my stack?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 19:22

Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this.

I've been programming for desktop as a hobby for the last 3 years. I've made a few personal productivity apps, and I'm expanding my skill set to include web dev in the coming few months. I wanted to try jumping straight into a project to learn, here's an explanation of what's happened in the last week:

My goal:

I would like to port a university timetable optimiser that I wrote in C# WPF to the web. The steps taken by a visitor to the site is ideally:

  • Enter their subject code/search their subject name in a search box.
  • Once a unit is selected, query the university website for subject information
  • Store this subject information
  • Repeat the above steps for the rest of the subjects (usually 4)
  • Specify restrictions (no classes before/after certain times, days to avoid).
  • Generate!
  • Show to user on a calendar (they can scroll through all permutations).

What I've done so far:

  • Set up a Node server, and ported all my code into a horrible reconstruction that thankfully works as intended so far.
  • All my code resides in one file: index.js, it contains methods such as loadSubject(subjectCode), many helper methods, and finally generatePermutations(subjectList).
  • Set up Express within the same file.
  • localhost:3000/api/loadsubjects?s[]=SUBJECTCODE0&s[]=SUBJECTCODE1&s[]=SUBJECTCODE2&s[]=SUBJECTCODE3succesfully outputs JSON of my subject list representation.

What I need to do:

  • Refactor my backend code. This is the first time I've ever touched JS, so I've definitely written some unpleasant code that I have yet to find.
  • Design a front-end! Learn how to communicate with the backend.

I'm trying to do a lot of research, and there are so, so many frameworks and topics I need to pick and choose from. React, Boostrap, AJAX, jQuery, express-session, Angular. I have no clue what I need to do for what. For this specific project, what should I ideally be focusing on? An example of a finished product that I wish to mimic is here.
