2.10 Mo’ Mongo

3.5h I’m slowly getting a grip on the data structure I need, but it’s a really interesting design challenge. Not because it is a hard problem, just because it is one I haven’t thought about very much before. I need to store recipes separate from users and machines, yet all three also need to be linked somehow. It’s not rocket surgery, but it’s still fun to think about.

I also put some time in to see if mySQL would be a better fit for my education or this project. I’m sure I’ll end up learning it at some point, but it seems like the current project has a rapidly changing data structure, and there will often be fields added and or removed. That is one of the big benefits of a noSQL system: flexibility.

Tomorrow is monday and I’m hopeful I will get more coding in. The last 5 days I have felt dead once the sun went down. Hopefully that turns around soon. I want to get some dummy data in real functions for writing and reading recipe data from the db, and then I want to make the form to edit a recipe. Lastly, let’s wire the thing up! One day may be ambitious for all of that, but I’ll give it a shot.

Tell me what you think.
