Pass a Class

  1. function callMethods(evt) {
  2.   const e = new evt
  3.   e.one()
  4.   e.two()
  5. }
  6.  
  7. callMethods(class {
  8.   one() {
  9.     console.log('one')
  10.   }
  11.  
  12.   two() {
  13.     console.log('two')
  14.   }
  15. })

This is so tempting for something I want to do… but too strange to use probably… maybe…

x.x()

  1. function x() {
  2.   return { x }
  3. }
  4. x.x = x
  5.  
  6. x(x(x.x.x).x(x)).x(
  7.   x().x(x.x())
  8. ).x
  9. .x
  10. .x
  11. .x.x.x.x()

  17.     }
  18.   }
  19. </script>

I don’t really like React… Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind it and I even kind of like using it – there’s something fun about it… But it’s surprising to me that UI work is still so bulky… I think React and most other UI libraries are overly complex… Every now and then I do evil style vanilla js versions of the React homepage examples as a sort of rebellion 😀 This is the React version of the above snippet:

  1. class TodoApp extends React.Component {
  2.   constructor(props) {
  3.     super(props);
  4.     this.state = { items: [], text: '' };
  5.     this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
  6.     this.handleSubmit = this.handleSubmit.bind(this);
  7.   }
  8.  
  9.   render() {
  10.     return (
  11.       <div>
  12.         <h3>TODO</h3>
  13.         <TodoList items={this.state.items} />
  14.         <form onSubmit={this.handleSubmit}>
  15.           <label htmlFor="new-todo">
  16.             What needs to be done?
  17.           </label>
  18.           <input
  19.             id="new-todo"
  20.             onChange={this.handleChange}
  21.             value={this.state.text}
  22.           />
  23.           <button>
  24.             Add #{this.state.items.length + 1}
  25.           </button>
  26.         </form>
  27.       </div>
  28.     );
  29.   }
  30.  
  31.   handleChange(e) {
  32.     this.setState({ text: e.target.value });
  33.   }
  34.  
  35.   handleSubmit(e) {
  36.     e.preventDefault();
  37.     if (this.state.text.length === 0) {
  38.       return;
  39.     }
  40.     const newItem = {
  41.       text: this.state.text,
  42.       id: Date.now()
  43.     };
  44.     this.setState(state => ({
  45.       items: state.items.concat(newItem),
  46.       text: ''
  47.     }));
  48.   }
  49. }
  50.  
  51. class TodoList extends React.Component {
  52.   render() {
  53.     return (
  54.       <ul>
  55.         {this.props.items.map(item => (
  56.           <li key={item.id}>{item.text}</li>
  57.         ))}
  58.       </ul>
  59.     );
  60.   }
  61. }
  62.  
  63. root.render(<TodoApp />);

I like w3Schools.

This code has some problems… but… for a cool little snippet to play with – I think that’s ok. SnippetZone certainly has tons of things like this…

Odd Gradient Notation

Just playing around… odd micro-gradient notation:

  1. '0 64 0/f'
  2. // x=0 y=0 width=0x64 height=0x64
  3. // 0/f = gradient black to white top right to bottom left
  4.  
  5. '64 64 0\\f'
  6. // x=0 y=0 width=0x64 height=0x64
  7. // 0\\f = black to to white gradient top left to bottom right
  8.  
  9. '0 6f 20 60 0-c'
  10. // x=0 y=0x6f width=0x20 height=0x60
  11. // 0-c = gradient black to grey (#ccc) left to right
  12.  
  13. // etc... ( | ) is top to bottom grad
