Packages With JSON

Default name is name of folder you’re in (Node)
- enter
Version #
Description: What is the project about? It’s a tutorial, so let’s name it such.

GitHub link.

Entry Point: Which file should we use to start this node application. (his says app.js, by default, mine says folders)
test command: -return-
git repository: your GIThub url
Author: ML
license: ISC
okay? : yes

You can see the package created in the explorer panel!

Also there’s a quick notice of a new version of npm, so I update that in the terminal.

Now we’re installing packages (reusable code in our own app) with nom. Let’s go code shopping at!

Found a code - let’s install;

And it appears in our JSON package.

There’s also a new folder (there’s several folders in here) with information about the package - lodash. I’m guessing more installed programs would be placed in here in their own folders.

In order to use this, we’re going to go way back to our app file and tell it to call our package.

We can also uninstall it with npm uninstall lodash, which removes it from dependencies and the module folder would disappear.

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H

Building, Breaking, and Building A CRM with Retool

 I like no- or low-code solutions to things. I've often wanted to simply push a button or move some GUI around and have the code implement itself.  I've thought about building something that's like a customer relationship management (CRM) system for keeping up with my network better than my little spreadsheet where I click links and then go like something. The general idea in this CRM Development is:  To have a GUI to add people to a NRM (Network Relationship Management).       Attach it to a database (MySQL is what I went with eventually using Amazon Relational Database service, but you can use PostGRES, and probably others).     Make sure components are connected to each other in the retool interface. This video is a good start. Watching the tutorial video, heard some SQL commands and went 'Oh no 😳" before going "Wait I know basic SQL", which is good, because you'll see.  When you get set up, there's a plethora of resources you can use -- Incl
