Drag and Drop Browser API

Over the next one and a half weeks, I will be exploring the drag and drop API, mostly because I found it cool 😜. I will also write articles on the given topics as I build a simple application to mess around with it.

File drag and drop is another cool feature I discovered on the browser recently and I intend to explore it as I learn how to use it to upload files to my Azure storage account.

If you have any ideas on simple cool ideas, feel free to 📥 me and perhaps we can learn together as we grow our programming skills 😀.

Aren't most of the drag/drop specs not supported by most browsers, today?

I cannot confirm about browser support but I believe it should be supported on most major browsers.

For further research, I hope this article from MDN will help, HTML Drag and Drop API

Happy hacking!🤓👨‍💻😀

After looking at the spec I guess support is not so bad. Only An issue for a couple small events. Partial IE support even

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
