Creating a Car Game in React, Part 4: Score

This is the fourth part of a series (that began here). So far, we have a game where you can whizz around the screen avoiding trees. This effectively encompasses most aspects of a game of this type; that is, you can move, and there is a something preventing you.
The next step is to introduce something for the player to try to do, and give a score based on that. In our case, our player is going to try and collect cups — as per the original game. The asset I’ve created for the cup is here. For anyone following this series, you may have noticed that my artwork is a little… crap.

Intro to Series on Uploading and Downloading Files With Node.js and Oracle Database

I first wrote about uploading and downloading files in 2015. Since then, many new features have been added to the driver, including streaming and buffer APIs for working with LOBs. It’s time to revisit the topic and put these new APIs to use. In this mini-series, I’ll demonstrate two different options for uploading and downloading files. The best choice for your use case will depend on several variables which will be discussed in the respective post. You might be wondering, why use the database to store files (unstructured data) when you could just use the file system? This is a great question. Here are a few important reasons:

Web Dev Best Practices: Implicit target=”_blank”

The target=”_blank" href attributes has been been the subject of many discussions. When is it right to use it? Should we use it at all? Is it actually deprecated? Is it good user experience? Does it break user expectations? Etc. And I have a strange proposal for improving the standard behavior in browsers — implicit target=_blank" in certain contexts. But let’s try to list when target="_blank" is a good idea:

Introduction to PixiJS: An HTML5 2D Rendering Engine

JavaScript is becoming more and more powerful. There are many games built with JavaScript usually using 2D or 3D libraries. PixiJS is one of those 2D libraries which works across all the devices. It is an HTML5 2D rendering engine that supports WebGL API and falls back to canvas when needed.
Prerequisites
Include PixiJS library by downloading the prebuilt build! It can also be installed via npm or embed the CDN URL directly.

Localization in Vue 2.0 Single File Components Without Using an i18n Library

This post is a quick note on localization. Recently I needed to add some localization features to a front-end project running Vue 2.0. Why not just use an i18n package? That would probably have been a good thing to do, but those I found either had confusing documentation, a high number of old unresolved issues on GitHub, or warnings from npm audit. And my needs were very simple: translate a few text blocks.

Localization is not always easy, but how hard is it to get it done without extra dependencies?

Starting Simple
Let’s start with a simple Vue app in a single HTML file using a CDN to load Vue.

Creating a Car Game in React (Part 1): Drawing and Moving

Since I started looking at React, I’ve wondered whether it would be possible to create a multi-user game. The game would look a little like a Spectrum game that I used to play called Trans-Am. I’m guessing most people reading this are not going to be old enough to remember this. Essentially, it marks the peak of car game development, and everything has been down hill ever since.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about then there’s a demo of the game here.

ADF Faces and Client-Side Value With innerHTML

In ADF Faces, you can leverage the full power of JavaScript. I will explain how you could assign a value from ADF Faces component to the plain HTML div. The sample app is available on GitHub repo. It doesn’t require DB connection, you can run it straight away in Oracle JDeveloper.
