I figured out why my scraper wasn't completing. The instance was timing out since it's a long process. Now I'm working on refactoring the scraper to be a webhook cloud function so I can put the function in a cloud task queue for each url generated

I deployed my first full stack webapp to the public, after many weeks of perseverance ->

Learnt so much along the way about how to deploy your code, use analytics, gain an audience, improve SEO and everything else you don't learn when you make a local project. I wrote a post about it here - have a read!

I demonstrated a type safe way to achieve polymorphism in C! Heavily inspired from functional languages. I then used this design pattern to achieve lazy iterators in pure C!

So I searched "functional programming roadmap" in google, and surprise, my post Learning functional programming: A roadmap was on the first page, the fifth link. It's so cool.

I bought a monitor which can swivel โ†ฉ๏ธ

And finally cracked SSR with React

React SSR Quickstart โš›๏ธ ๐Ÿ“ฆ

Starter template for server-side and client-side rendering of a React app

GitHub tag License

Made with Node.js Package - react Package - express


Sample screenshot

Use this project

Use this template



Based on tutorial:

We set up a client-side React app with some components including an incrementing counter.

On initial page load without JS running, a user or a search engine crawler will see an empty page. So we add a server-side Express app that return an HTML page which acts as a fully-rendered starting point that needs no JS to view in the browser.

We do this by calling ReactDOMServer.renderToString, which unfortunately freezes the app so that ignores user interaction. This is solved by calling React.hydrate on the client, so that the browser can make the initial HTML and turn it into a dynamic app in the usual SPA style.
