Pinned toot

Someone on Fosstodon got in touch with me eventually, and we've closed a deal today. I'm starting next month and absolutely stoked to grow into my role and become even better for the next time around! ๐ŸŽ‰

I had absolutely no idea what would happen or any expectation with this toot. Almost out of desperation, this was me shouting into the fediverse -- yet 76 boosts and dozens of replies and DMs later, here I am, incredibly taken aback by the response and the help extended. Thank you EVERY ONE! โ™ฅ

Pinned toot

May be very ambitious, but I want to run a small, personal instance and have 5 real-life friends migrate to it.

I want to see people being again like they were on when it was new to them.

Hmm, so this Tour of Heroes example app that the docs walk you through is storing it at the module directory level, with the naming convention <feature>.ts.

Is this the recommended way?

Where do I store interfaces and enumerators such as ones in the picture? They are specific to a component, or more broadly, a module.

Ahh, so you've got to use the component property while loading the children in the Route config. That component becomes the root/layout component, where you then exercise router-outlet!

Decided to finally give in and make a todo list app in .

Struggling with the concept of "layouts" at the moment. Maybe I'm approaching this all wrong!

You've probably heard of 10x engineer. If you've been interneting a while, you may know it became a meme. Well, Tierney Cyren set up a somewhat satirical page called : 1x.engineer/. I think that's pretty neat.: rusingh.com/micro/notes/2021/0

...and this section gives a bit more perspective. Looks like providers might be an advanced topic...?

But at least, it seems, you can see it's just one of three ways to provide a service. But in some situations, a service can be "provided" using *something else* other than Angular's service class... and I don't know when you'd do that, and how.

But there's also this section: angular.io/guide/dependency-in

which clearly goes: "By configuring providers, you can make services available to the parts of your application that need them."

And now I'm more confused -- this goes over my head. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I'm guessing this changed at some point, and either

1. those tutorials are outdated, or,
2. the people writing it for Angular 11 did not keep up?

Show thread

Hmm, it seems you *don't* need to update a module to tell Angular that that module will use a particular service.

The @Injectable() decorator with its providedIn flag does this.

...which isn't obvious, and is the wisdom being imparted in every tutorial I have read so far. Even one written specifically for 11!

Am I missing something?

The official tutorial goes:

providers: [
// no need to place any providers due to the `providedIn` flag...
],

So that's the final word then?

I'm fatigued. I want to invest myself into a "boring" tech that's got at least another 3-5 years of a decent amount of usage in the industry... enough time for me to master it slowly and still get a pay-off.

What do I opt into - does Ruby on Rails sounds like a good idea?

Why do people keep saying they mastodon features โ€œethical designโ€?

@uoya @viv I stumbled on this today: blog.container-solutions.com/r

While not an authoritative source for sure, I think "DooD" makes sense and is *probably* the correct term.

Can using an alternative frontend for Spotify get my account locked?

This seems really cool that someone's working on it.

Do you ever reach for data list tags in ? What are some common use cases you have found in your daily practice?

I've used a ton of blogging software over the years. The one thing that's given me very little pain: file-based storage, or more specifically, Markdown files. An appreciation post.: rusingh.com/articles/2021/02/1

@garritfra All the best for github.com/garritfra/FlutterFl. Excited to see where this goes.

Perhaps one day you make one for too? ๐Ÿ˜‰
