Advice on learning to write modules??
I posted this in Modules/Development, but I will post here also in case I was in the wrong place:
I want to learn to write my own modules and I’m wondering where to start. Should I be looking to learn about writing node.js for this?
My work has a Udemy business account, so I can check out basically any course I want for free. There are a few courses I saw there about node.js and I’m wondering if that’s the right direction to take. Any insight would be a huge help. Thanks!
@GoodWillGustin there really isn’t a lot of node specific work for a module. most of that work is done already…
read the guide in the readme doc.
I have a sample module with all the parts
no templates, which are just text replacement models,
they don’t help you get the data to use for the replacement).
the built in sample, helloworld (template) really wasn’t helpful to me, with lots of systems and app development experience
@sdetweil hmm ok thanks, I will check it out!
@GoodWillGustin most of the services or apis u might use to access data somewhere are asynchronous. Meaning they will call u back later when they finish or fail.
