Skip to main content

Missed you Angular

In a phase when I was developing Formia (our acadamic mini project), I needed to add a dynamic heading. hmm.., that means: I have an

<input type="text" name="title">

and a <p>...</p> tag.
I wanted to display the content of text box on <p> as I type on text box. At that point, I was unaware of AngularJS. I implemented that in pure JS. wired...

For the record, this feature could be implemented easily by Angular, as follows:

When you type on the box below, the content will dynamically display next to it.

{{message}}

(for best results use Chrome / Firefox)

Well, how's this happening?


Add the Angular CDN script to top of the HTML.

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.4.8/angular.min.js"></script>

Add this 4 line to have that magic.

<div ng-app="">
<input type="text" ng-model="message">
{{message}}
</div>

Refresh your page. :)

This is because of 2-way data binding. You can read more at Angular Documentation.

How to pass variables to res.render() in Node.js

I was trying to figure out how to render a view inside a view, as I was stuck with this issue.

Horrible Effects of Misplaced Extensions ;)
I was using Node.js platform with ejs template engine.

My index.ejs file has an included header.ejs file.
Everything works well except that I can't pass values to the variable status in header.ejs.

Here is my abstract code...

index.ejs

header.ejs

app.js

The most funniest solution ever!
The solution is as easy as this.
Just remove .ejs extension from the include command.
I spent at least an entire night to figure it out.

Talky Messenger Documentation & Setup

(Github)
Just created a chat app that runs in Node and Socket. By the Grace of God, this attempt was worthy.

Talky is a messenger app built with Node, Express, Socket, Angular & Bootstrap.
It's like a server-client structure. (But obviously not like the one we done at OS lab using shared memory). It has a broadcasting structure. Talky does not keep a log on chat. i.e., It doesn't have a memory or database. When we close the browser window, chat history is lost. There I also added a basic console, protected by a password, to send real-time notifications to active clients.

The name 'Talky' was suggested by a friend of mine. (hey, thank you for that. The fact is that I am not really good at naming...😝)

What if sometimes your college blocks WhatsApp? Try Talky.

(There is also a website on internet in the name of 'Talky' which has no connection with this one.)
