Wrapping It All Up1:12 with Alena Holligan
We covered three different ways to persist data in a browser. Forms, which included just using the query string, Sessions and Cookies. You can also combine these methods with a database or other file system for server based persistence.
- Implement Code Challenges
- Check session for all 5 words, redirect to missing word
- Don't allow blank words
- If not starting over, show the last word they entered
- Set up a prompt to ask the user if they really want to delete the story.
- Write additional stories that use the same 5 words we utilized for the original story.
- Create a bank of different stories and save the entire story instead of just the user entered words.
- Use the language tool api to make sure the word conforms to the part of speech requested http://wiki.languagetool.org/public-http-api
Great job being persistent and finishing this course. 0:00 We covered three different ways to persist data in a browser. 0:04 Forms, which include just using the query string, sessions and cookies. 0:07 You can also combine these methods with a database, or other file system, for 0:12 server based persistence. 0:17 Although I have shown you some of the limitations for 0:19 each of these methods, we haven't talked about security. 0:22 For this story project, 0:26 I'm not really worried about protecting the data that's being used. 0:28 But if you want to work with sensitive data, such as user name and password, 0:31 you'll need to consider the security of the persistence methods you choose. 0:35 But have no fear, we have a user authentication course when you're ready. 0:40 I have also included additional resources in the notes associated with this video. 0:45 Before you continue to the next course, 0:50 take some time to play around with what you learned about data persistence. 0:52 You can write a completely different application or 0:57 expand upon the game we created in this course. 0:59 If you'd like some suggestions, check out the notes associated with this video. 1:02 Continue to be persistent yourself, to have fun and keep learning. 1:07
