JS - React workshop

Posted on: Fri, 27/07/2018 - 10:19 By: sacha

Two days of basic js training using react.  Day one we all worked on creating a very basic  tic tac toe game, day 2 a meme generator.

All very much beyond me, too advanced to be able to do much of anything.  Most of the group felt the same.  Also no talk about how this would integrate with a website. But good exposure I suppose, made two very basic react apps with a lot of help.  But not the basic intro to js I was expecting.



Capturing Visitor Input

Using the prompt() method.


The process of combining strings is called "concatenation". In JavaScript, you combine strings with a + operator like this:

'one string ' + ' another string'

If you have a variable that contains a string you can combine it with a literal string value to come up with a new string:

var name = "Dave";
var message = "Hello " + name;

Access the variable to update the variable

Quick one - how to install a specific version of drush.  Because googling this results in a multitude of possible ways to install drush, here is a quick and to the point method:

  1. global composer has to be installed already
  2. install cgr:
    composer global require consolidation/cgr 
  3. Then using your new cgr command, install the version you want of drush like this. In my case I wanted 8.1.13:
    cgr drush/drush:8.1.13

And that's all.
