    There are two important points to setup source code of project:

    (1) Install and run redis-server

    (2) Create and setup for GitHub Application

    Here is my setup procedures for your reference:

    Is that a special iTerm2 plugin to get that JavaScript editor to show up this way?

  6. Citizen-1701 said

    Does anyone know which iTerm2 theme and font the author uses in this screencast demo? Thanks in advance!

    I have mixed feelings about this Soup to Bits. I think looking at the code will make a lot of this clearer. After doing the Marvels of MangoDB I wanted a concrete example. The big take away I got from this is that a Drivers vary wildly and that all I got from the course is the reference implementation. Which is fine, just good to know then. I was hoping that I actually see this being tied into the page itself or something back end. That was all abstracted away in that call back function that I don't remember looking back into. Something that being able to look at the code when available would alleviate. In general good jump. Though part of me is still screaming that some semicolons where missed.

    Can I suggest that you include the 'starting' code in the GitHub repo as a different branch? So, all the code with the PostgreSQL stuff commented out, but without the MongoDB stuff you added. That way we could follow along and build it out, but still wouldn't have to get all the other code manually.

    Hi Joel, how do you get that tab styles in iTerm2? I am only between the the default ones (Metal, Acqua...). Do you use an additional plugin?

    In the resources, the link to the GitHub repo should point at
