If you’re building an application, you likely want a lot of users on your platform. However, you don’t just want a large number of users, you want real and high-quality users who will interact with your app. You want to verify those users.
No authentication system is complete without a password reset feature. I would personally never ship a product that did not have this feature included. It is necessary to provide a way for users to recover access to their accounts/data in case of a lost or forgotten password. In this article, I will be demonstrating how to handle password resets in ExpressJS.
In this article, I’m going to demonstrate how to build a user registration and authentication system in ExpressJS. In the previous article, we set up a MongoDB connection using Mongoose. Here we’ll be using that connection to save user data and use it for authentication.
In the previous article, I demonstrated how to set up Nunjucks template engine in your express project. I decided to make this a full-fledged web app development series of articles by progressively building the example application. In this article, we are going to connect the app to a MongoDB database using Mongoose.
When building a web app without a dedicated front-end framework like ReactJS, Templating engines (e.g. Blade, Nunjucks) are incredibly useful.
Though they aren’t entirely necessary, they definitely help create more dynamic pages with cleaner HTML code.
Whenever I have a task that needs automation, python is my goto language. This is due to its simplicity and versatility. Python is extremely powerful for this application and even more so when combined with a utility such as cron.
Cron is a software utility that allows us to schedule tasks (cronjobs) to run periodically, at fixed times or at pre-determined intervals.
These tasks can serve any desired function. Some common applications include periodically backing up user data or calling an API endpoint.
There comes a time when we have to worry about more than just making sure our applications work, but that they work optimally. When using react, we have certain tools at our disposal to make sure our applications are optimised. In this article, I will demonstrate how to achieve this using React.memo and the useMemo hook.
React offers many ways to manage state. I have previously written about one such method, using redux. Another way to manage react state is through the use of the useReducer hook. In this article, I am going to demonstrate the usage of this hook along with some of its benefits.
Recently, I was in a situation that required workbox integration for background sync in an application. After some trial, error and success, I decided to write this article to demonstrate the easiest way I’ve found to integrate workbox with create-react-app.
