It has been a while, and not for lack of trying. I’ve figured out the the ins and outs of Sequelize-CLI, I’ve been working on building multiple associations and how those work. I’ve been trying to figure out some jQuery and Node nuances. Unfortunately I’ve been swamped with a deadline at work and spending all my time getting the forms/apps for work together, so I haven’t had much time to explore beyond my work.

Yesterday I posted about setting up Express to run with Sequelize.js with the basic restful routes. I used Postman to interact with the database. There weren’t any webpages, etc. Today I decided to go all out and set up all the RESTful routes and database interactions. The repo is here and is very simple. I didn’t use any CSS to make the pages pretty. All I wanted was the basic functionality of a website with RESTful routing and Sequilize. Nearly everything worked the first time around, that was really exciting. There isn’t much else to say. My next post will be a little more detailed about how to set everything up. I’ll be including user authentication and associations (hopefully I figure them out). I’m starting that right now! end

Sorry for the delay, I’ve been very busy lately. I haven’t done a lot of work on the YelpCamp app from last week. I went back and did a lot of work on the project form week 3. I’m very pleased with that website, but it needs more work before I can update it. The biggest downside of that website is that it uses MongoDB for the database. I’m not trying to bash Mongo, but all the work we do at NDOW relies on SQL databases, and our long term data wharehousing is a SQL database. So for the last several days I’ve been trying to figure out the Sequilize.js library.

This week I worked on more RESTful best practices, and again using the online course I’ve been following. This is one of the example projects. I’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks now, and it isn’t finished, but I’m on a short vacation and have worked on it a little bit and need a project.

This week I decided to engrain REST into my mind by doing another project where that was the main focus. I designed a website for data entry of wildlife observations. It is pretty basic, and follows the guidelines I learned in the online web developer bootcamp I purchased. Again, nothing too fancy, just more practice.
