Using ESLint and Prettier in a TypeScript Project

ESLint’s large set of linting rules and the increased commitment to use ESLint by the TypeScript team makes ESLint a great tool for linting .

When it comes to linting TypeScript code, there are two major linting options to choose from: TSLint and ESLint. TSLint is a linter than can only be used for TypeScript, while ESLint supports both JavaScript and TypeScript.

In the TypeScript 2019 Roadmap, the TypeScript core team explains that ESLint has a more performant architecture than TSLint and that they will only be focusing on ESLint when providing editor linting integration for TypeScript. For that reason, I would recommend using ESLint for linting TypeScript projects.


Setting up ESLint to work with TypeScript

First, install all the required dev dependencies:

yarn add eslint @typescript-eslint/parser @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin --dev

  • [eslint](https://www.npmjs.com/package/eslint "eslint"): The core ESLint linting library
  • [@typescript-eslint/parser](https://www.npmjs.com/package/@typescript-eslint/parser "@typescript-eslint/parser"): The parser that will allow ESLint to lint TypeScript code
  • [@typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin](https://www.npmjs.com/package/@typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin "@typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin"): A plugin that contains a bunch of ESLint rules that are TypeScript specific

Next, add an .eslintrc.js configuration file in the root project directory. Here is a sample configuration for a TypeScript project:

module.exports =  {
  parser:  '@typescript-eslint/parser',  // Specifies the ESLint parser
  extends:  [
    'plugin:@typescript-eslint/recommended',  // Uses the recommended rules from the @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin
  ],
 parserOptions:  {
    ecmaVersion:  2018,  // Allows for the parsing of modern ECMAScript features
    sourceType:  'module',  // Allows for the use of imports
  },
  rules:  {
    // Place to specify ESLint rules. Can be used to overwrite rules specified from the extended configs
    // e.g. "@typescript-eslint/explicit-function-return-type": "off",
  },
};

Note: I prefer using a JavaScript file for the .eslintrc file (instead of a JSON file) as it supports comments that can be used to better describe rules.

If using TypeScript with React, the [eslint-plugin-react](https://www.npmjs.com/package/eslint-plugin-react) dev dependency should be installed and the following configuration can be used:

module.exports =  {
  parser:  '@typescript-eslint/parser',  // Specifies the ESLint parser
  extends:  [
    'plugin:react/recommended',  // Uses the recommended rules from @eslint-plugin-react
    'plugin:@typescript-eslint/recommended',  // Uses the recommended rules from @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin
  ],
  parserOptions:  {
  ecmaVersion:  2018,  // Allows for the parsing of modern ECMAScript features
  sourceType:  'module',  // Allows for the use of imports
  ecmaFeatures:  {
    jsx:  true,  // Allows for the parsing of JSX
  },
  },
  rules:  {
    // Place to specify ESLint rules. Can be used to overwrite rules specified from the extended configs
    // e.g. "@typescript-eslint/explicit-function-return-type": "off",
  },
  settings:  {
    react:  {
      version:  'detect',  // Tells eslint-plugin-react to automatically detect the version of React to use
    },
  },
};

Ultimately it’s up to you to decide what rules you would like to extend from and which ones to use within the rules object in your .eslintrc.js file.

Adding Prettier to the mix

What works well along with ESLint is prettier, which does a great job at handling code formatting. Install the required dev dependencies to get prettier working with ESLint:

yarn add prettier eslint-config-prettier eslint-plugin-prettier --dev

  • [prettier](https://www.npmjs.com/package/prettier "prettier"): The core prettier library
  • [eslint-config-prettier](https://www.npmjs.com/package/eslint-config-prettier): Disables ESLint rules that might conflict with prettier
  • [eslint-plugin-prettier](https://www.npmjs.com/package/eslint-plugin-prettier): Runs prettier as an ESLint rule

In order to configure prettier, a .prettierrc.js file is required at the root project directory. Here is a sample .prettierrc.js file:

module.exports =  {
  semi:  true,
  trailingComma:  'all',
  singleQuote:  true,
  printWidth:  120,
  tabWidth:  4,
};

Next, the .eslintrc.js file needs to be updated:

module.exports =  {
  parser:  '@typescript-eslint/parser',  // Specifies the ESLint parser
  extends:  [
    'plugin:@typescript-eslint/recommended',  // Uses the recommended rules from the @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin
    'prettier/@typescript-eslint',  // Uses eslint-config-prettier to disable ESLint rules from @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin that would conflict with prettier
    'plugin:prettier/recommended',  // Enables eslint-plugin-prettier and displays prettier errors as ESLint errors. Make sure this is always the last configuration in the extends array.
  ],
  parserOptions:  {
    ecmaVersion:  2018,  // Allows for the parsing of modern ECMAScript features
    sourceType:  'module',  // Allows for the use of imports
  },
};

The advantage of having prettier setup as an ESLint rule using eslint-plugin-prettier is that code can automatically be fixed using ESLint’s --fix option.

Automatically Fixing Code (VS Code)

For a good developer experience, it’s useful to setup your editor to automatically run ESLint’s automatic fix command (i.e. eslint --fix) whenever a file is saved. Since i’m using VS Code, here is the config required in the settings.json file in VS Code to get automatic fixing whenever saving a file:

"eslint.autoFixOnSave":  true,
"eslint.validate":  [
  "javascript",
  "javascriptreact",
  {"language":  "typescript",  "autoFix":  true  },
  {"language":  "typescriptreact",  "autoFix":  true  }
],

If you’ve also set the editor.formatOnSave option to true in your settings.json, you’ll need to add the following config to prevent running 2 formatting commands on save for JavaScript and TypeScript files:

"editor.formatOnSave":  true,
"[javascript]":  {
  "editor.formatOnSave":  false,
},
"[javascriptreact]":  {
  "editor.formatOnSave":  false,
},
"[typescript]":  {
  "editor.formatOnSave":  false,
},
"[typescriptreact]":  {
  "editor.formatOnSave":  false,
},


And there you have it. That’s how you can lint a TypeScript project using ESLint. If you want to make sure all the files you commit to git pass the ESLint checks, take a look at lint-staged, which can run ESLint on files being commited.

Top Android Projects with Source Code

Android Projects with Source Code – Your entry pass into the world of Android

Hello Everyone, welcome to this article, which is going to be really important to all those who’re in dilemma for their projects and the project submissions. This article is also going to help you if you’re an enthusiast looking forward to explore and enhance your Android skills. The reason is that we’re here to provide you the best ideas of Android Project with source code that you can choose as per your choice.

These project ideas are simple suggestions to help you deal with the difficulty of choosing the correct projects. In this article, we’ll see the project ideas from beginners level and later we’ll move on to intermediate to advance.

top android projects with source code

Android Projects with Source Code

Before working on real-time projects, it is recommended to create a sample hello world project in android studio and get a flavor of project creation as well as execution: Create your first android project

Android Projects for beginners

1. Calculator

build a simple calculator app in android studio source code

Android Project: A calculator will be an easy application if you have just learned Android and coding for Java. This Application will simply take the input values and the operation to be performed from the users. After taking the input it’ll return the results to them on the screen. This is a really easy application and doesn’t need use of any particular package.

To make a calculator you’d need Android IDE, Kotlin/Java for coding, and for layout of your application, you’d need XML or JSON. For this, coding would be the same as that in any language, but in the form of an application. Not to forget creating a calculator initially will increase your logical thinking.

Once the user installs the calculator, they’re ready to use it even without the internet. They’ll enter the values, and the application will show them the value after performing the given operations on the entered operands.

Source Code: Simple Calculator Project

2. A Reminder App

Android Project: This is a good project for beginners. A Reminder App can help you set reminders for different events that you have throughout the day. It’ll help you stay updated with all your tasks for the day. It can be useful for all those who are not so good at organizing their plans and forget easily. This would be a simple application just whose task would be just to remind you of something at a particular time.

To make a Reminder App you need to code in Kotlin/Java and design the layout using XML or JSON. For the functionality of the app, you’d need to make use of AlarmManager Class and Notifications in Android.

In this, the user would be able to set reminders and time in the application. Users can schedule reminders that would remind them to drink water again and again throughout the day. Or to remind them of their medications.

3. Quiz Application

Android Project: Another beginner’s level project Idea can be a Quiz Application in android. Here you can provide the users with Quiz on various general knowledge topics. These practices will ensure that you’re able to set the layouts properly and slowly increase your pace of learning the Android application development. In this you’ll learn to use various Layout components at the same time understanding them better.

To make a quiz application you’ll need to code in Java and set layouts using xml or java whichever you prefer. You can also use JSON for the layouts whichever preferable.

In the app, questions would be asked and answers would be shown as multiple choices. The user selects the answer and gets shown on the screen if the answers are correct. In the end the final marks would be shown to the users.

4. Simple Tic-Tac-Toe

android project tic tac toe game app

Android Project: Tic-Tac-Toe is a nice game, I guess most of you all are well aware of it. This will be a game for two players. In this android game, users would be putting X and O in the given 9 parts of a box one by one. The first player to arrange X or O in an adjacent line of three wins.

To build this game, you’d need Java and XML for Android Studio. And simply apply the logic on that. This game will have a set of three matches. So, it’ll also have a scoreboard. This scoreboard will show the final result at the end of one complete set.

Upon entering the game they’ll enter their names. And that’s when the game begins. They’ll touch one of the empty boxes present there and get their turn one by one. At the end of the game, there would be a winner declared.

Source Code: Tic Tac Toe Game Project

5. Stopwatch

Android Project: A stopwatch is another simple android project idea that will work the same as a normal handheld timepiece that measures the time elapsed between its activation and deactivation. This application will have three buttons that are: start, stop, and hold.

This application would need to use Java and XML. For this application, we need to set the timer properly as it is initially set to milliseconds, and that should be converted to minutes and then hours properly. The users can use this application and all they’d need to do is, start the stopwatch and then stop it when they are done. They can also pause the timer and continue it again when they like.

6. To Do App

Android Project: This is another very simple project idea for you as a beginner. This application as the name suggests will be a To-Do list holding app. It’ll store the users schedules and their upcoming meetings or events. In this application, users will be enabled to write their important notes as well. To make it safe, provide a login page before the user can access it.

So, this app will have a login page, sign-up page, logout system, and the area to write their tasks, events, or important notes. You can build it in android studio using Java and XML at ease. Using XML you can build the user interface as user-friendly as you can. And to store the users’ data, you can use SQLite enabling the users to even delete the data permanently.

Now for users, they will sign up and get access to the write section. Here the users can note down the things and store them permanently. Users can also alter the data or delete them. Finally, they can logout and also, login again and again whenever they like.

7. Roman to decimal converter

Android Project: This app is aimed at the conversion of Roman numbers to their significant decimal number. It’ll help to check the meaning of the roman numbers. Moreover, it will be easy to develop and will help you get your hands on coding and Android.

You need to use Android Studio, Java for coding and XML for interface. The application will take input from the users and convert them to decimal. Once it converts the Roman no. into decimal, it will show the results on the screen.

The users are supposed to just enter the Roman Number and they’ll get the decimal values on the screen. This can be a good android project for final year students.

8. Virtual Dice Roller

Android Project: Well, coming to this part that is Virtual Dice or a random no. generator. It is another simple but interesting app for computer science students. The only task that it would need to do would be to generate a number randomly. This can help people who’re often confused between two or more things.

Using a simple random number generator you can actually create something as good as this. All you’d need to do is get you hands-on OnClick listeners. And a good layout would be cherry on the cake.

The user’s task would be to set the range of the numbers and then click on the roll button. And the app will show them a randomly generated number. Isn’t it interesting ? Try soon!

9. A Scientific Calculator App

Android Project: This application is very important for you as a beginner as it will let you use your logical thinking and improve your programming skills. This is a scientific calculator that will help the users to do various calculations at ease.

To make this application you’d need to use Android Studio. Here you’d need to use arithmetic logics for the calculations. The user would need to give input to the application that will be in terms of numbers. After that, the user will give the operator as an input. Then the Application will calculate and generate the result on the user screen.

10. SMS App

Android Project: An SMS app is another easy but effective idea. It will let you send the SMS to various no. just in the same way as you use the default messaging application in your phone. This project will help you with better understanding of SMSManager in Android.

For this application, you would need to implement Java class SMSManager in Android. For the Layout you can use XML or JSON. Implementing SMSManager into the app is an easy task, so you would love this.

The user would be provided with the facility to text to whichever number they wish also, they’d be able to choose the numbers from the contact list. Another thing would be the Textbox, where they’ll enter their message. Once the message is entered they can happily click on the send button.

10 Writing steps to create a good project brief - Mobile app development

Developing a mobile application can often be more challenging than it seems at first glance. Whether you’re a developer, UI designer, project lead or CEO of a mobile-based startup, writing good project briefs prior to development is pivotal. According to Tech Jury, 87% of smartphone users spend time exclusively on mobile apps, with 18-24-year-olds spending 66% of total digital time on mobile apps. Of that, 89% of the time is spent on just 18 apps depending on individual users’ preferences, making proper app planning crucial for success.

Today’s audiences know what they want and don’t want in their mobile apps, encouraging teams to carefully write their project plans before they approach development. But how do you properly write a mobile app development brief without sacrificing your vision and staying within the initial budget? Why should you do so in the first place? Let’s discuss that and more in greater detail.

Why a Good Mobile App Project Brief Matters?

Why-a-Good-Mobile-App-Project-Brief-Matters

It’s worth discussing the significance of mobile app project briefs before we tackle the writing process itself. In practice, a project brief is used as a reference tool for developers to remain focused on the client’s deliverables. Approaching the development process without written and approved documentation can lead to drastic, last-minute changes, misunderstanding, as well as a loss of resources and brand reputation.

For example, developing a mobile app that filters restaurants based on food type, such as Happy Cow, means that developers should stay focused on it. Knowing that such and such features, UI elements, and API are necessary will help team members collaborate better in order to meet certain expectations. Whether you develop an app under your brand’s banner or outsource coding and design services to would-be clients, briefs can provide you with several benefits:

  • Clarity on what your mobile app project “is” and “isn’t” early in development
  • Point of reference for developers, project leads, and clients throughout the cycle
  • Smart allocation of available time and resources based on objective development criteria
  • Streamlined project data storage for further app updates and iterations

Writing Steps to Create a Good Mobile App Project Brief

Writing-Steps-to-Create-a-Good-Mobile-App-Project-Brief

1. Establish the “You” Behind the App

Depending on how “open” your project is to the public, you will want to write a detailed section about who the developers are. Elements such as company name, address, project lead, project title, as well as contact information, should be included in this introductory segment. Regardless of whether you build an in-house app or outsource developers to a client, this section is used for easy document storage and access.

Setting up efficient workflows with ESLint, Prettier and TypeScript

In this article I would like to start very easily and go into more depth from topic to topic. In the first step we will use simple rules and options. Then we will learn the correct use of configs and plugins. During the whole learning process you will get useful tips and information so you will be able to build your own ESLint and Prettier environment.

How it all began#

Actually I did not want to use ESLint and Prettier because I never felt the need for it because Angular, which i use in my daily life, brings a linting tool and a simple code formatter. But in the end several other things made my decision to use ESLint and Prettier in a more professional way.

First the endless discussions how code should be written or formatted. This is a really annoying subject, for me at least. Personal preferences should go away here. There are more important things to consider.

Secondly, if I want to introduce this to the team, team members will definitely ask me questions and I don’t want to stand there helplessly. It can happen that colleagues lose interest if you do not answer questions or if you cannot promote it.

Thirdly, the power of these tools. It helps you to focus on the essentials in your daily life instead of consistently being forced out of your flow because of for example code has been formatted incorrectly which is mostly reported by a colleague in a code-review.

At the end of the day its all about business no matter how much fun we have in what we do. It is just waste of time. You can spend your time better.

As you can see, for a developer there are many disruptive factors in daily business. Let’s eliminate these disturbances together based on established web tools.

Info: There will be maybe no TSLint with Angular in the near future because TypeScript decided to support ESLint instead of TSLint. The Angular Team is currently working on a migration from TSLint to ESLint. See here.

What is ESLint and how can it help us?#

ESLint is a tool which can analyze written code. Basically it is a static code analyzer and it can find syntax errors, bugs or styling improvements. In other languages such as Go is the a core part of the programming language.

What do I need to get started with ESLint?#

I assume that you have node and npm installed on your operating system and are familiar with it.

Create a playground directory#

You should change into a directory where your JavaScript or TypeScript project is or like me create a test directory “lint-examples” where we can work on it according to this article. On a Linux-based operating system just type mkdir lint-examples in the command-line and then change to this directory with cd lint-examples.

Install ESLint#

Now let’s create a package.json so we can install ESLint. Execute the following command: npm init create a package.json which is required for installing eslint in your directory.

Add eslint to your npm scripts#

{
  "name": "eslint-examples",
  "version": "0.0.0",
  "description": "",
  "main": "index.js",
  "scripts": {
    "eslint": "eslint"
  },
  "devDependencies": {
    "eslint": "7.1.0"
  }
}

Tip: "eslint": "eslint" in scripts is a shortcut for node_modules/.bin/eslint

Create test.js#

Now let’s create a simple JavaScript file in lint-examples directory where we can apply ESLint on. Don’t worry about why the code sample is weirdly formatted. We need this as a starting point.

var foo = 1
console.log(foo)
var bar
bar = 1
function test(

    ) {
  console.log(baz)
}
var baz = 123

Why Use WordPress? What Can You Do With WordPress?

Can you use WordPress for anything other than blogging? To your surprise, yes. WordPress is more than just a blogging tool, and it has helped thousands of websites and web applications to thrive. The use of WordPress powers around 40% of online projects, and today in our blog, we would visit some amazing uses of WordPress other than blogging.
What Is The Use Of WordPress?

WordPress is the most popular website platform in the world. It is the first choice of businesses that want to set a feature-rich and dynamic Content Management System. So, if you ask what WordPress is used for, the answer is – everything. It is a super-flexible, feature-rich and secure platform that offers everything to build unique websites and applications. Let’s start knowing them:

1. Multiple Websites Under A Single Installation
WordPress Multisite allows you to develop multiple sites from a single WordPress installation. You can download WordPress and start building websites you want to launch under a single server. Literally speaking, you can handle hundreds of sites from one single dashboard, which now needs applause.
It is a highly efficient platform that allows you to easily run several websites under the same login credentials. One of the best things about WordPress is the themes it has to offer. You can simply download them and plugin for various sites and save space on sites without losing their speed.

2. WordPress Social Network
WordPress can be used for high-end projects such as Social Media Network. If you don’t have the money and patience to hire a coder and invest months in building a feature-rich social media site, go for WordPress. It is one of the most amazing uses of WordPress. Its stunning CMS is unbeatable. And you can build sites as good as Facebook or Reddit etc. It can just make the process a lot easier.
To set up a social media network, you would have to download a WordPress Plugin called BuddyPress. It would allow you to connect a community page with ease and would provide all the necessary features of a community or social media. It has direct messaging, activity stream, user groups, extended profiles, and so much more. You just have to download and configure it.
If BuddyPress doesn’t meet all your needs, don’t give up on your dreams. You can try out WP Symposium or PeepSo. There are also several themes you can use to build a social network.

3. Create A Forum For Your Brand’s Community
Communities are very important for your business. They help you stay in constant connection with your users and consumers. And allow you to turn them into a loyal customer base. Meanwhile, there are many good technologies that can be used for building a community page – the good old WordPress is still the best.
It is the best community development technology. If you want to build your online community, you need to consider all the amazing features you get with WordPress. Plugins such as BB Press is an open-source, template-driven PHP/ MySQL forum software. It is very simple and doesn’t hamper the experience of the website.
Other tools such as wpFoRo and Asgaros Forum are equally good for creating a community blog. They are lightweight tools that are easy to manage and integrate with your WordPress site easily. However, there is only one tiny problem; you need to have some technical knowledge to build a WordPress Community blog page.

4. Shortcodes
Since we gave you a problem in the previous section, we would also give you a perfect solution for it. You might not know to code, but you have shortcodes. Shortcodes help you execute functions without having to code. It is an easy way to build an amazing website, add new features, customize plugins easily. They are short lines of code, and rather than memorizing multiple lines; you can have zero technical knowledge and start building a feature-rich website or application.
There are also plugins like Shortcoder, Shortcodes Ultimate, and the Basics available on WordPress that can be used, and you would not even have to remember the shortcodes.

5. Build Online Stores
If you still think about why to use WordPress, use it to build an online store. You can start selling your goods online and start selling. It is an affordable technology that helps you build a feature-rich eCommerce store with WordPress.
WooCommerce is an extension of WordPress and is one of the most used eCommerce solutions. WooCommerce holds a 28% share of the global market and is one of the best ways to set up an online store. It allows you to build user-friendly and professional online stores and has thousands of free and paid extensions. Moreover as an open-source platform, and you don’t have to pay for the license.
Apart from WooCommerce, there are Easy Digital Downloads, iThemes Exchange, Shopify eCommerce plugin, and so much more available.

6. Security Features
WordPress takes security very seriously. It offers tons of external solutions that help you in safeguarding your WordPress site. While there is no way to ensure 100% security, it provides regular updates with security patches and provides several plugins to help with backups, two-factor authorization, and more.
By choosing hosting providers like WP Engine, you can improve the security of the website. It helps in threat detection, manage patching and updates, and internal security audits for the customers, and so much more.
