In the weeds on my MVP
I’ve gotten a respectable start on my MVP project. I’ve gotten a lot of the basics done –as in, this is basic, now you need to add/change …
Easy stuff like creating a readme file, spinning up a node with express server on my localhost (e.g., running off my computer only) for testing and development, setting up bare-bones route files and client files are done –lots of changes will happen within those files though. I’ve written a few tests and need to write a whole lot more.
I’m re-thinking my database decision. Because my app will need real time inserts into the db (and being able to have dynamic table creation would increase functionality and allow for adding in later bells and whistles), I am thinking that I really should be utilizing a NOSQL database. I’ve got the mysql tables and their joins all mapped out but am seriously thinking of scrapping that plan. I’m going to take a day to mull it over.
Today, I am brushing up on ES6 and reading, reading, reading documentation on React.
