Better Code Monday 11/11/19

Good day! 👋

Here are this week's three coding tips:

Tip #1 - Shallow or deep?

Copying objects in Javascript can be abit tricky 😅...
Assume we have this kind of object and we would like to copy the data to another object.
If you try to copy it like this, it would create a reference instead of actually copying the data.

Meaning, if we change anything in the greatObject, its copy also gets updated automatically. 😱

Instead you could shallow or deep copy your objects like this....👇
Two ways to shallow copy objects.

Note: This doesn't copy nested objects or arrays but instead creates a reference. Hence the word shallow!
Deep copying object using JSON functions.

Tip #2 - Data-fns ⌛

Are you dealing with dates? Date-fns is a nice little library that could make your life easier.

Here is how it looks like...👇

Tip #3 - Distraction-free environment

At any given moment, there is a million thing fighting for your attention. 😩

To make it easier to focus on the important things, try to minimise the clutter in your digital environment. 🧹

Here are few things I find helpful 😁:
  • Inbox zero, always.
  • Keep Desktop empty.
  • No more than 5 browser tabs open at the time.
  • Use tools like StayFocusd to systematically block noise.
  • Establish notification free-time. No slack, phone notifications or emails...
