This is a repo that I attempted to live-code for Web Directions Code '12. I used it as a humorous example of how to use the various commands of npm, and how to develop responsibly in CoffeeScript by compiling before publishing.
This module exposes one function,
true references with the more Aussie-friendly
!!"fair dinkum", and
false references with
var assert = require("assert") , dinkumise = require("dinkumise") , dinkumised = dinkumise("true === !false") assert.equal(dinkumised, '!!"fair dinkum" === !!"fair dinkum"')
Things I mentioned
- I'm Jed Schmidt. Find me on twitter or Github.
- typd.in is a Japanese IME bookmarklet I wrote.
- Textpanda is another bookmarklet I wrote, inspired by Text Expander.
- Pastebud is the last bookmarklet I wrote, which solved early iPhone copy/paste issues.
- 140byt.es is a tweet-length code-golfing contest I started, written in Node.js.
- Ramendan is another Node.js contest I wrote, a 30-night ramen crawl based on the Twitter API.
- This whole presentation is about package management.
- node.js is the platform that makes everything I'm presenting possible.
- npm is the Node.js Package Manager.
- Rubyists use Rubygems and Bundler to manage their packages.
- PHPists use Composer and Packagist to manage theirs.
- npm now has more than 10,000 modules
- Though it started on its own, npm is node and vice versa. According to @ryah, it may even eventually be called using
- Modernizr was the inspiration for Dinkumisr, which I live-coded for this presentation.
- If you like Dinkumisr, you'll love bogan ipsum.
- If you're looking for an npm module, nipster is often more effective than
npm search, at least until more curation is built-in.
- If you're releasing open-source code, travis-ci makes it incredibly easy to test, and can be set up quickly using travisify. Looks like
npatwill bring similar functionality deeper into Node.js.
- An npm module needs only two things configured: a name and a version, the latter follows the semver spec, which is basically a convention of ..-.
- If you like managing your modules the way npm does, use Browserbuild or Browserify to bring it to the client.
