One of the most common problems with databases are sorting. Let’s see an simple example: we use MySQL/MariaDB and have table with some data. We want to sort this data. Everything is ok if we use only values in the same type in field, for example numeric (maybe some amount?), strings (titles), dates, keys etc. But what if field is custom, user-typed data and may contain many types? In that case, we have big problem, because standard sorting is not enought, it will not work. Example, value: “11”, “1”, “2”, “3”, “2a” will be sorted in order: 1, 11, 2, 2a, 3, not as we expected i.e. 1, 2, 2a, 3, 11. The solution is to use natural sorting.
Vue offers very nice binding and events system. We can create component, set some data using props, and also emit events from that component. If you read official Vue documentation, you can see examples for some standard form inputs. These examples using v-model and allows two-way binding without any additional code and without creating methods for events in parents – of course, we can still watch data from v-model. Can we use v-model way also in our custom components? Yes, it’s possible and very simple to do. See some examples.
NPM repository is great too, where we can find a lot of very good tools. On of them is SweetAlert2. Library to qucikly implement dialogs with errors, success messages or question. This library also allows to implement simple forms, like question about youir name with input, selection field, radio, files upload or other, custom template. This small tutorial is how to add “do not prompt in the future” to SweetAlert2 dialog. It’s vary simple, but some dev can be confused, how to add this, because it’s in conflict with some build-in options.
