Don’t seek for everything to happen as you wish it would, but rather wish that everything happens as it actually will — then your life will flow well. — Epictetus

Generate Excel files in React.js

We often required to export an excel file in our web application to generate reports. Most of the time, this task is done by server-side scripts. But with the advancement of the client-side languages, there may be the case where our application needs to generate on the client-side. Yes, of course, we could call the API in the background to the server requesting it to generate such files and return the link. If we don’t want that to happen, instead generate…


Some of the advanced features of the postman to ease the life of API developers.

While developing API, either RESTful or GraphQL or SOAP, testing and debugging are crucial. But creating a form to consume those API, just for the sake of debugging, is not very efficient and effective. Hence, some kind of API client, capable of consuming or querying GET/POST or any other kind of HTTP request to the endpoint, is required.

Among the vast selection of GUI tools available for this purpose, I find quite easy and really powerful. Here, I will list some of the advanced features of Postman to increase the productivity as a API developers.

Node.js event loop architecture.

Most of the server-side languages, like PHP, ASP.NET, Ruby, JAVA servers, follow multi-threaded architecture. That means, every request by the client results in the instantiation of a new thread or even a process.

However, in Node.js, all request are handled in a single thread with shared resources. Then how does Node.js handle concurrent traffic or requests? It follows “Single Threaded Event Loop Model” architecture that runs on top of single V8 engine instance.

Node.js is event-driven that implements background workers to achieve non-blocking asynchronous behavior. We called it the . …

Getting started with GraphQL

GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, makes it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enables powerful developer tools.

A simple query using GraphQL is shown below.

REST API Specifications

REST APIs follow an architectural style (resourceful endpoints) but a specific standard is not required and thus often overlooked. Hence the design phase is more time consuming than other phases of API development. If multiple people are involved where different opinion arises, API design can be cumbersome, especially in development and implementation. Documentation of the API is another part of designing, which cannot be missed.

Several REST API specifications have been developed to provide standards and tools…

Happy Dashain!

Yes, the biggest festival season in the Nepali calendar has finally started and the greeting of Dashain could be heard all over the office. Though the best thing about Dashain is the weather at this time of the year — the bright sun and cool breeze, this year the sky is still cloudy and rainy with uncertain downpour. This made us think that climate change is real and is happening.

The last week before Dashain (a long awaited holiday actually) has made us all so excited. Everyone seems to be getting into holiday-mode here at YoungInnovations. …
