How do I load my HTML and CSS file with my NODEJS server?

I am running a nodejs server file, code below. Currently the code you see does not have the HTML or CSS referenced because I don’t know how to do it.

const http = require('http');

// Create an instance of the http server to handle HTTP requests
let app = http.createServer((req, res) => {
    // Set a response type of plain text for the response
    res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});

    // Send back a response and end the connection
    res.end('Hello World!n');

// Start the server on port 3000
app.listen(3000, '');
console.log('Node server running on port 3000');

In a folder that looks like this

I have already searched online for hours, looked at previous stackoverflow posts, and I still haven’t found the answer. I got the HTML file to load at one point, but I was not able to get the CSS file to load.

Is there a reason to prefer Symbol.keyFor() over Symbol.prototype.description?

In JavaScript, I can create Symbol -primitives like this:

const ex1 = Symbol('example1');
const ex2 = Symbol.for('example2');

And I can get the original string that was used to create the Symbol by accessing the Symbol.prototype.description, or by calling the Symbol.keyFor() -method like so:

ex1.description; // 'example1'
ex2.description; // 'example2'
// OR
Symbol.keyFor(ex1); // undefined
Symbol.keyFor(ex2); // 'example2'

My questions are;

  • Is there any difference between the two methods, other than Symbol.keyFor not working for Symbols that are not in the global registry (i.e. created from Symbol.for())? It seems to me they are otherwise used to achieve the exact same thing.
  • Is there a reason to ever prefer using Symbol.keyFor() instead of Symbol.prototype.description? Since the description works for all Symbols, while keyFor works only for ones in the global registry.

Why does bind() work so inconsistently in Vue template event handlers?

When experimenting with a bit of fancy syntax in my templates today I came across a confusing behaviour of the bind() function in Vue event handlers.

Ignoring any possibly bad practices and the fact that the bind is completely pointless here, please look at the following 2 code samples.


  <button @click="(() => console.log('this gets logged')).bind()"></button>

export default {
  computed: {
    console: () => console,
  <button @click="myFunc.bind()"></button>

export default {
  methods: {
    myFunc () { console.log("this doesn't get logged") }

Code sample 1 properly logs an output to the console when clicking the button, but for some reason sample 2 doesn’t log anything. Why?

Why’s my response coming back correctly the first log but later on it changes to a 1?

I’m facing a very weird issue where my response comes back correctly during the first log but later on it changes to a 1 when the console.log(data); logs data to the console.

The screenshot shows the pattern:

enter image description here

If you expand the very first array underneath where it says data below from userEffect inside Gallery.js , the data shows up as intended

Then there’s the response array from App.js which also appears as intended.

Lastly, the response magically gets converted to a 1 from inside Gallery.js and I’m not sure how. I’ve ran out of options on how to troubleshoot this and resolve it where it doesn’t get converted to a 1.

What am I doing wrong? I’m open to any code improvements and any other suggestions for better practice :).

Here’s App.js:

import { useEffect, useState } from 'react';
import { BrowserRouter as Router, Switch, Route, useHistory} from 'react-router-dom';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import '../../sass/HomePage/homePage.scss';
import LoginRegister from "./LoginRegister/LoginRegister";
import Gallery from "./Gallery/Gallery";
import Cookies from 'js-cookie';

const App = () => {
    const [uploadsData, setUploadsData] = useState([]);
    let { push } = useHistory();
    let authToken = Cookies.get('token');

    useEffect(() => {

    function getUploads() {
        const headers = {
            "Accept": 'application/json',
            "Authorization": `Bearer ${authToken}`

        axios.get('http://localhost:8005/api/get-uploads', {headers})
            .then(resp => {
                let uData = uploadsData.push(resp)
                if (authToken !== null) {
                } else {
                    console.log("User's NOT authenticated, returning to login view");
            }).catch(error => {

    return (
                <Route exact path="/" component={LoginRegister} />
                <Route component={() => <Gallery data={uploadsData}/>} />

export default App;

if (document.getElementById('example')) {
    ReactDOM.render(<Router><App/></Router>, document.getElementById('example'));

Here’s Gallery.js:

import React, {useEffect} from 'react';

const Gallery = ( {data} ) => {
    useEffect(() => {
        console.log("FROM App.js INSIDE Gallery.js");
    }, []);

    return (

export default Gallery;

Javascript remove style using giving it a id or a class

How to scroll to top on route change with react router dom v6?

How to scroll to top on route change with react router dom v6?

I have tried this, react-router scroll to top on every transition, which was my solution to make my page scroll to top on route change when I use react-router-dom v5. Now, I am using react-router-dom v6 and this solution does not work.

I tried React-router v6 window.scrollTo does not work and does not work for me.

I tried, which is to use the preload prop to trigger the scrollTo(0,0), also does not work for me.

TinyMCE droping html element not allowed with Chrome and Edge

I’ve an issue with Chrome and Edge, about dropping. I have on the right side of my html page, html elements I can drop. On the left side, the tinymce editor. Everything about the editor is set correctly, I have look up for a lot of solutions to resolve my issue, but without success.

The aim is to drag an element from the right, and to drop it on the editor. If i have some text on the editor, it has to be dropped at the caret position of the editor where the mouse with the dragging element is. With firefox, it works well, I have no problems.

Issues with Chrome and Edge:

  • When I have dragged the element, and I start to go in the editor, the css cursor is ‘not-allowed’
  • I added the parameter auto_focus : 'tinyid' at the initialization of the editor (no need to do it on Firefox), where tinyid is the id of the textarea containing the tinymce editor.
  • The solution I had, was to click at a caret position in the editor where I want to drop my element, to start dragging my element, but to not go in the editor, and to drop it after dragging it. It will appear at the caret position i clicked on before.

About solutions I tried:

To set the focus

  • tinyMCE.activeEditor.focus();
  • tinymce.execCommand("mceFocus", false, "tinyid");
  • tinyMCE.get('tinyid').focus();

To get the selection and the caret position with:

  • var objSelection = tinyMCE.activeEditor.selection.getSel();
  • var intCaretPosition = objSelection.anchorOffset;

But all of this is not working. I repeat it works on Firefox. To drag and drop, I use this:

.bind('dragstart', function(event, ui){
    // start
    tinymce.execCommand("mceFocus", false, "tinyid");
.bind('drag', function(event, ui){
    // while 
    tinymce.execCommand("mceFocus", false, "tinyid");
.bind('dragend',   function(event, ui){
    // end
    tinymce.execCommand("mceFocus", false, "tinyid");

The function moveElementDraggedIntoEditor(event), is a function where I reworked the html element I dropped, to reformate it.

If you need more precisions, I will try to add some codes.

Thank you for trying to find a solution about my issue.

Do React child components always need to be stateful?

When a child component’s sole purpose is to consume its parent’s state, does it need to be stateful itself?

Looking at these two examples:


const ServicesCard = ({ service, onClick, isPro = false }) => {
  const name = isPro && ? :;
  let price = isPro && ? :;

  // Special case scenarios
  let prefix;
  let suffix;

  if (service.hasPages) {
    prefix = 'from';
  if (service.uid === 'abcdef') {
    prefix = '';
    price = `${price} per page`;
    suffix = '($5 minimum)';
  if (service.uid === 'qwerty') {
    suffix = "+ gov't fees";

  return (
    <div className={styles.servicesCard} onClick={onClick}>
      <h1 className={styles.header}>{name}</h1>
      <p className={styles.pricing}>
        <span className={styles.prefix}>{prefix}</span>
        <span className={styles.price}>{`$${price}`}</span>
        <span className={styles.suffix}>{suffix}</span>


const ServicesCard = ({ service, onClick, isPro = false }) => {
  const [name, setName] = useState('');
  const [price, setPrice] = useState('');
  const [prefix, setPrefix] = useState('');
  const [suffix, setSuffix] = useState('');

  useEffect(() => {
    const _name = isPro && ? :;
    let _price = isPro && ? :;

    // Special case scenarios
    let _prefix;
    let _suffix;

    if (service.hasPages) {
      _prefix = 'from';
    if (service.uid === 'abcdef') {
      _prefix = '';
      _price = `${_price} per page`;
      _suffix = '($5 minimum)';
    if (service.uid === 'qwerty') {
      _suffix = "+ gov't fees";

  }, [service]);

  return (
    <div className={styles.servicesCard} onClick={onClick}>
      <h1 className={styles.header}>{name}</h1>
      <p className={styles.pricing}>
        <span className={styles.prefix}>{prefix}</span>
        <span className={styles.price}>{`$${price}`}</span>
        <span className={styles.suffix}>{suffix}</span>

I feel like both of them would behave the same, since a re-render will be triggered by a state change higher up in the tree anyways, forcing everything to be recalculated. React also emphasizes that Data flows down.

Provided that service is the only prop that changes, why should I use more browser memory by using the useState & useEffect React APIs?

Do styles components use JSX?

I am learning to use react and styled components. While using the styled components package to create a button element, the React import at the top of my code editor gives a warning that react is defined/declared but never used.

Isn’t creating a html button and assigning it to a javascript variable JSX ?
Do styled components already have the JSX logic built in ?
Kindly help clear this doubt.

import React from 'react';
import styled from 'styled-components';

const Button = styled.button`
  font: inherit;
  padding: 0.5rem 1.5rem;
  border: 1px solid #8b005d;
  color: white;
  background: #8b005d;
  box-shadow: 0 0 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.26);
  cursor: pointer;

&:focus {
  outline: none;

&:active {
  background: #ac0e77;
  border-color: #ac0e77;
  box-shadow: 0 0 8px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.26);

export default Button;

How would I add data on a button press to the either the root or a component of Vue 3?

My main problem is that I’m trying to reactively add data to either the Vue root or a Vue component. The reason this is an issue is because once my Vue app instance is mounted, (using app.mount()), I am unable to reactively add data to the Vue application. I am trying to use Vue along with vanilla JS as I am a novice with the framework. I guess what it really comes down to is… is there any event I could trigger or object I could call in vanilla JS to insert new data into lets say an array of objects within the Vue app instance?

Images are not showing when clicking on canvas (JavaScript)

I am having an issue displaying images on a canvas when it clicks. I am using a bit of Ajax as well to get the city names from an array of JSON Objects (these city names correspond to different plane images that I am trying to display).

For example when I click the canvas nothing appears on the canvas but when I go to inspect element/network it shows that its getting the images.

This is what shows when I click the canvas, as you can see it still gets the images but doesn't display them.

The code that I used to display the images:

function drawPlanes() {
canvas = document.getElementById("myCanvas");
ctx = canvas.getContext("2d");
var max = 1000;
var min = 553;
var cityNames = schedule["cities"];
var randomCity = cityNames[Math.floor(Math.random()*cityNames.length)].city;

var planeImage = new Image();
planeImage.onload = function() {
    ctx.drawImage(planeImage, Math.random() * (max - min) + min, Math.random() * (max - min) + min);
planeImage.src = findImage(randomCity);

This is the findImage function that I use to determine what Image it is and from that write the source:

function findImage(cityNames) { 
if (cityNames == "Iqaluit" || cityNames == "Whitehorse" || cityNames == "Yellowknife") {
    return "img/plane.jpg";
if (cityNames == "Halifax" || cityNames == "Charlottetown" || cityNames == "Winnipeg" 
        || cityNames == "Regina" || cityNames == "Edmonton" 
            || cityNames == "Victoria" || cityNames == "Toronto") {

    return "img/" + cityNames.toLowerCase() + ".jpg";

if (cityNames == "Fredericton" || cityNames == "Ottawa" || cityNames == "Quebec") {
    return "img/" + cityNames.toLowerCase() + ".png";


if (cityNames == "St. John") {
    return "img/stjohn.jpg";

In summary I am just having an issue actually displaying the images on the canvas when it is clicked. Hope this is clear.
