About React…..

I’m kind of stuck with getting the run build to work right.

I built my app on codeanywhere’s IDE, but now I have found that getting it off of there and into the real world is less simple than I’d hoped.

So, in the meantime, I made a new profile for my side gig, ridesharing. I’ve wanted to make a page to share with riders from out of town, my favorite things in Austin. This has a “best of Austin” linkset, that for now, just links to outside posts, that I agree with their contents. In the future, I want to personalize some of my favorites, while still providing the broad links.


It has a rideshare section that has some recruitment links, and some of my favorite apps, for drivers and riders.

I hope to get the React App version out soon, as it looks cleaner, no scrolling.

If the React issue takes too long, I will switch the profile page over to some Javascript and just use dynamic html to create a single page app.

Onto React!

I’ve been slacking in updating here, but I have been working on Javascript a lot lately, as well as making a couple new web pages just to refresh.
React is what I’m working on now. I certainly understand the high level flow of React, but I’m still working out exactly how routing and state/props work.

I’ve completed all the freecodecamp.org React modules, but I still want more practice before I add redux to it. Once I have that, I am going to make a few web apps and then start diving into Android/iPhone apps.

I made a random quote generator with just js, now I want to go back and make it using React. -> https://codepen.io/ThomasAurelius/full/ymXoyB

I also made a landing page for Uber and Lyft referrals, I’m going to use a URL shortener, and generate a QR code to link to it, and put it in my car. – > http://thomasaurelius.com/projects/referral/index.html
