Unit Testing UseReact

July 7, 2023 -

Unit Testing Components that use UseReact We’ve been learning React for our new app we are building. I’m a firm believer in having automated tests (is this a unit or integration test? :-)). Testing Library is a great place to start. We want to have tests on our components. Over the last few months, I’ve had trouble faking the useQuery Api/Http calls. I got it working today! I don’t have a lot of new info to share, but will give you the links that helped me and a small code snippet.

January 7, 2023 -

This week in Eni Oken’s Art Club, we did a 2022 retrospective, and went back to basics with a standard Z-string tile. Here are my reflections and thoughts. The year in numbers I finished around 70 tiles (it’s hard to count, as I gave some away, and some ended up in my art journals) I have a half-dozen or so unfinished tiles. Around a dozen tangle studies, where I deconstructed tangles to better understand their fundamental fragments, and different tangeleations I could create.

Convert to on an old Enfold theme

January 2, 2023 -

The problem Recently I came across a very old Enfold theme – version 3.6.1. The website would should visitors Not Secure instead of a padlock for SSL/TLS. The research Upon investigating the HTML DOM through View Source and Developer Tools in Chrome and Edge, it appeared there was only one http:// resource on an otherwise HTTPS site. This was the culprit:<link rel=”profile” href=”“> The solution To change this to an https link without updating/upgrading the theme, edit wp-content/themes/enfold/framework/php/function-set-avia-frontend.
