Submitted by Nicholas on Tue, 12/21/2021 - 11:14

In this blog, we will see how we could improve our front end developer experience as well as performance by introducing webpack (plugins and loaders in the eco system) as an extra tool in our front-end development toolbox 🧰 🧰 .

Some of the problems webpack tries to solve include;

  • We can arrange our front-end project into different files and folders for easier development and maintenance and bundle/pack that maybe into one or several files as our app requires.

Paypal express checkout and drupal (updated + smart buttons)

Submitted by Nicholas on Sun, 04/25/2021 - 10:38

Two years ago, I wrote a blog demonstrating how one could integrate Paypal express checkout in Drupal, but...; in tech, things move(change) fast, mostly for better:
that blog was about PayPal api v1 - one reason being; the Paypal SDK library we were extending has been abandoned (deprecated) for a better one.

In this blog we will attempt to achieve the same and make things better. We will use smart payment buttons to initiate and authorize an order, and add the necessary logic in Drupal to process the authorized order (payment) details in the request object.



Reading and writing to drupal (8) config.

Drupal 8 provides several apis for storing your application data, these include;entity api, configuration api and the state api. There are several ways to determine what api to use depending on what data you want to store, and in this blog we will look at theconfig api . We're going to see how we could define default values on module install, and later edit the same via a config form, and finally we will use these settings in a controller to render items on a page including pictures of cats, from _ the cats api _. (I choose this api because it requires a key and we need that to demo the capabilities of drupal config api ).

Automatic notifications/updates when a trade setup forms via mql WebRequest

The Idea:
As a trader who analyzes candle patterns, it might be tiring , to keep checking for trade setups every now and then (especially if you are trading on
smaller timeframes eg M15 or M30).

In this blog, we will explore how one could create a simple notification system that makes sure, one never missed a pattern if it forms (unless they wanted to) on any chart that the EA  will be running on.
