12.5 Study Log


Today was pretty fun. I worked on thinking out a new app and I figured out how to integrate express with react. More importantly I figured out WHY someone would want to do that. In my case I want to make a front end where someone can access it with a web browser and a back end where an API responds quickly to requests. React requires javascript in the browser to do all of it’s magic, so it was the wrong choice for the API stuff, but it could be great for the front end stuff.

I also did a bit of fooling around with git and github and got myself a bit tied up in knots. Specifically I set up a gitignore file and then it didn’t ignore anything. Then the wormhole sucked me in and I spent some time trying to figure it out. Still no answer, but it’s time for bed.
