A short note about JS

I have been working with JavaScript lately, and I enjoy it so much. It gives me the whole “mobile development vibe” but it is much quicker and easier – no need to build all the time etc. I have to say, it is inclining me to resuming mobile dev activities… not gonna lie.

Just a short note to tell you about the fun I’ve having 😉

[Note] ‘ChatConsumer’ has no attribute ‘as_asgi’ – Sloppy development

Following Channels’ docs I encountered yet another error the solution to what was not obvious right off the bat.

Ditch Channels.

The End.

This was my original post in October 2020 and I stand by it.

You can make your project work with Google Firebase - it handles signals well enough. Yes it is primarily used by mobile developers, but overall it is fine for web too.

I spent trying to install Django Channels on my local Linux 18.04, and I kind of made it work, but then I had to deploy it... And as a professional backender you don't want to let people down.

I decided to try Channels because my Python-related friends talked about it. But days into the trouble I asked my friend about a certain step and he asked me in return "oh so [you use it because] they fixed Channels since two years ago?". I as like ??????????????????. So that moment I ditched it. Too much time wasted, but I like the result I achieved with Firebase.

What I am saying - Firebase is fast and universal. In a matter of days I managed to make and deploy an internal Customer Support chat service that connected mobile app users and a support from the web.</p>

I will be writing a new series on Django + Firebase, and this post is pretty much a short introduction.
