Using Scoped Slots in Vue.js to Abstract Functionality

Let’s start with a short introduction to Vue.js slots concept. Slots are useful when you want to inject content in a specific place of a component. Those specific places that you can define are called slots. For example, you want to create a wrapper component that is styled in a specific way but you want to be able to pass any content to be rendered inside that wrapper (it might be a string, a computed value, or even another component). There are three types of slots: default / unnamed slots: used when you have a single slot in a component. We create them by adding <slot> in the template where we want to be able to inject our content. This <slot> tag will be replaced with any content passed to the component’s template. named slots: used when you have multiple slots in a component and we want to inject different…

Flutter: Google’s take on cross platform

Flutter is a mobile SDK that, at its core, is about empowering everyone to build beautiful mobile apps. Whether you come from the world of web development or native mobile development, Flutter makes it easier to create mobile apps in a familiar, simplified way, without ever giving up control to the framework. As of this writing, Google AdWords and Alibaba are both using Flutter in production. You can see more examples of who’s using Flutter (including the app I’ve worked on) on Flutter’s website on the showcase page. Right now, there’s a lot of buzz about Flutter. The question I see most often is, “Flutter or React Native…which one should I use?” Like all things in programming, its all about the tradeoffs you’re willing to make. I’m going to try to convince you that Flutter is the best option for mobile app development. I believe it’s better than any other…

Let’s make a form that puts current location to use in a map!

I love shopping online. I can find what I need and get most things for a decent price. I am Nigerian currently working and studying in India, and two things I dread when shopping online are: Filling out a credit card form Filling out shipping and billing address forms Maybe I’m just lazy, but these things are not without challenges! For the first one, thanks to payment processing services like PayPal and e-wallets, I neither have to type in my 12-digit credit card number for every new e-commerce site I visit, nor have to save my credit card details with them. For the second, the only time-saving option given by most shopping websites is to save your shipping address, but you still have to fill the form (arrghh!). This is where the challenge is. I’ve had most of my orders returned because my address (which I thought was the right…

Announcing Node.js on Acquia Cloud

Today, Acquia announced that it expanded Acquia Cloud to support Node.js, the popular open-source JavaScript runtime. This is a big milestone for Acquia as it is the first time we have extended our cloud beyond Drupal. I wanted to take some time to explain the evolution of Acquia’s open-source stack and why this shift is important for our customers’ success. From client-side JavaScript to server-side JavaScript JavaScript was created at Netscape in 1995, when Brendan Eich wrote the first version of JavaScript in just 10 days. It took around 10 years for JavaScript to reach enterprise maturity, however. Adoption accelerated in 2004 when Google used JavaScript to build the first release of Gmail. In comparison to e-mail competitors like Yahoo!
