I use CodePens in my blog posts and recently I noticed that there is an issue which prevents displaying CodePen embeds correctly. I use Contentful to manage blog posts content. Contentful supports embedding content via Embedly. But for some reason, Embedly fails to show my CodePens in some cases. I couldn’t find the reason nor any way to load them. They just didn’t load. So I decided to stop hitting my head against the wall and make an implementation without Embedly.
By default, the Angular Universal app makes HTTP requests again when app is bootstrapped even app is already rendered on the server side. Though there is a really simple solution which can be implemented without any actual code changes. At first when I tried to find how to prevent requests I only found tutorials how to implement this at the component level. After googling a while I luckily found an easier way to implement this.
I attended awesome ngVikings 2018 conference which was held in 1st and 2nd of March in Espoo, Finland. I gathered here all the presentation slides I could find. There is still few missing but I'll update the list if they become available.
I am an experienced web developer with an eye for solid UI/UX design. I have specialized in front-end development, responsive web design, design systems, modern web frameworks, and content management systems. I also have experience in mobile apps development and back-end coding with PHP, Node.js, and Java. So I have a full stackish background, but I'm enjoying most building robust and beautiful front-ends with performance, accessibility, and testability in mind.
