Authentication (and authorization?) with Express for RESTful APIs.
As usual with Node, too many existing solutions — and their documentation sucks.
Been cloning this document for so long, so many times…
And… yet another web app. A POC, or MVP, pivot, all this biz speak. Idea (“hypothesis”) was to do a catalog, user generated content (UGC), semi-structured (folksonomies, but with added semantics), which can then be drilled down, interactively, in un/foreseeable ways. Nu, I had some ideas.
Anyway, Paula Borowska explains MVP goals/principles well:
Years now, it seems, I’ve been building countless web apps using mostly the same technologies and some variations. Time to make an official platform?
My “map” for the (scary and exciting, iconoclastic zeitgeist/post-modern) LevelDB/Node maze.
For yet another web app, that requires a Facebook OAuth login, I deviated from FB’s code examples and bumped into a race condition!
Was a great hackathon! Too much fun, as always.
Focus was EyeWriter, a hacked device and driver for cheap/DIY eye tracking, to assist ALS patients, and others. Team (Maaike, Jan, Anna, Yossi, and I) set out to extend Oren’s eyewriter-chrome-ext, a Chrome extension to facilitate browsing with EyeWriter devices, and ended up forking other repos to create EyeRecorded (my fork), essentially a macro recorder for web page events.
Awful. Hardware problems are always a nightmare, as expected, been there done that, but still an awful experience. I like the absolute reliability of code, as a mathematical entity.
