It's that time of the week again. So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

After years of typing "npm run [script]", by habit, I just happened to stumble on this in vs code. Hover over the script name and click run. (I know, probably nothing new to everyone, but new to me :))

I think you can also add scripts to the sidebar in VS Code, which lists the scripts and lets you run them from there.

This week, I learned to rely on shopify apps the hard way. The client I work with lessened the hours on my timedoctor due to an unjustifiable amount of time implementing a requested feature rather than going through the apps on the app store.

This week, I learnt that you can stash one file instead of all files. I figured it was possible, but never really had a need to do it until this week.

git stash push -- path/to/your/file/your-file.extension

Interesting. The other day I learned that you can checkout a single file from another branch to the current branch you're working on.

Oh, man - third week of JS class, and since it's all new to me, the list of what I learned this week would take up too much space! :) Probably the most useful thing I learned this week was how arrays sort elements by converting them to strings then comparing their UTF-16 code unit values.
