URL — Uniform Resource Locator

HTML URL Encoding Reference

URL Encoding (Percent Encoding)

URL encoding converts characters into a format that can be transmitted over the Internet.

URLs can only be sent over the Internet using the .

Since URLs often contain characters outside the ASCII set, the URL has to be converted into a valid ASCII format.

URL encoding replaces unsafe ASCII characters with a “%” followed by two hexadecimal digits.

URLs cannot contain spaces. URL encoding normally replaces a space with a plus (+) sign or with %20.

URL Encoding Functions

In JavaScript, PHP, and ASP there are functions that can be used to URL encode a string.

In JavaScript you can use the encodeURIComponent() function.

The decodeURIComponent() function decodes a URI component.

Note: The JavaScript function encodes space as %20.

ASCII Encoding Reference

Your browser will encode input, according to the character-set used in your page.

The default character-set in HTML5 is UTF-8.

Function Overloading

Unlike the other programming languages JavaScript Does not support Function Overloading. but we can implement the function Overloading on our own, which is pretty much complex when it comes to more number and more type of arguments.

In JavaScript if two functions are defined with same name, then the last defined function will overwrite the former function.

// Creating a class "foo"
class foo {
// Creating an overloable method/function.
overloadableFunction() {
// Define three overloaded functions
var function1 = function (arg1) {
console.log("Function1 called with"
+ " arguments : " + arg1);
return arg1;
};
var function2 = function (arg1, arg2) {
console.log("Function2 called with"
+ " arguments : " + arg1
+ " and " + arg2);
return arg1 + arg2;
};
var function3 = function (arg1) {
var concatinated__arguments = " ", temp = " "
// Concatinating all the arguments
// and storing them into a string
for (var i = 0; i < arg1.length; i++) {
concatinated__arguments =
concatinated__arguments + arg1[i]
}
/* Just ignore this loop and temp variable,
we are using this loop to concatinate
arguments with a space between them */
for (var i = 0; i < arg1.length; i++) {
temp = temp + " " + arg1[i]
}
console.log("Function3 called with this"
+ " array as an argument : [" + temp + "]");
console.log("Output of log is : ")
// Returns concatinated argument string
return concatinated__arguments;
};
/* Here with the help of the length of the
arguments and the type of the argument
passed ( in this case an Array ) we
determine which function to be executed */
if (arguments.length === 1
&& Array.isArray(arguments[0])) {
return function3(arguments[0]);
} else if (arguments.length === 2) {
return function2(arguments[0], arguments[1]);
} else if (arguments.length === 1
&& !Array.isArray(arguments[0])) {
return function1(arguments[0]);
}
}
}
// Driver Code// Instantiate an object of the "foo" class
var object = new foo();
// Call the overloaded functions using the
// function overloadableFunction(...)
// We are passing 1 argument so executes function1
console.log(object.overloadableFunction("Geeks"));
// We are passing two arguments so executes function2
console.log(object.overloadableFunction("Geeks", "for"));
// We are passing an array so executes function3
console.log(object.overloadableFunction(
["Geeks", "for", "Geeks"]));

Output:

Function1 called with arguments : Geeks
Geeks
Function2 called with arguments : Geeks and for
Geeksfor
Function3 called with this array as an argument : [ Geeks for Geeks]
GeeksforGeeks
Output of log is :
GeeksforGeeks

Screen Object

The screen object contains information about the visitor’s screen.

Returns the height of the screen (excluding the Windows Taskbar).

Returns the width of the screen (excluding the Windows Taskbar).

Returns the total height of the screen.

Returns the total width of the screen.

Returns the bit depth of the color palette for displaying images.

Returns the color resolution (in bits per pixel) of the screen.

splice function:

The splice() method adds/removes items to/from an array, and returns the removed item(s).

Note: This method changes the original array.

arr.splice(index, 0, itemsToadd);

0: items to delete

will insert itemsToadd into arr at the specified index.

var fruits = [“Banana”, “Orange”, “Apple”, “Mango”];
fruits.splice(2, 0, "Lemon", "Kiwi");
fruits.splice(2, 1, "Lemon", "Kiwi");
#Output:
Banana,Orange,Lemon,Kiwi,Apple,Mango
Banana,Orange,Lemon,Kiwi,Mango

slice() method

The slice() method returns the selected elements in an array, as a new array object.

The slice() method selects the elements starting at the given start argument, and ends at, but does not include, the given end argument.

var fruits = ["Banana", "Orange", "Lemon", "Apple", "Mango"];
var citrus = fruits.slice(1, 3);
#output:
Orange,Lemon

Note: The original array will not be changed.

unshift() Method

The unshift() method adds new items to the beginning of an array, and returns the new length. Note: This method changes the length of an array. Tip: To add new items at the end of an array, use the push() method.

In TypeScript, we have a lot of basic types, such as string, boolean, and number. These are the basic types of TypeScript. You can check the list of all the basic types . Also, in TypeScript, we have advanced types and in these , we have something called . With type aliases, we can create a new name for a type but we don’t define a new type.

Interfaces in JS

There’s no notion of “this class must have these functions” (that is, no interfaces per se), because:

  1. JavaScript inheritance is based on objects, not classes. That’s not a big deal until you realize:

Types vs. interfaces

The difference between types and interfaces in TypeScript used to be more clear, but with the latest versions of TypeScript, they’re becoming more similar.

Interfaces are basically a way to describe data shapes, for example, an object.

Type is a definition of a type of data, for example, a union, primitive, intersection, tuple, or any other type.

1. Declaration merging

One thing that’s possible to do with interfaces but are not with types is declaration merging. Declaration merging happens when the TypeScript compiler merges two or more interfaces that share the same name into only one declaration.

Let’s imagine that we have two interfaces called Song, with different properties:

interface Song {
artistName: string;
};
interface Song {
songName: string;
};
const song: Song = {
artistName: "Freddie",
songName: "The Chain"
};

TypeScript will automatically merge both interfaces declarations into one, so when we use this Song interface, we’ll have both properties.

Declaration merging does NOT work with types. If we try to create two types with the same names, but with different properties, TypeScript would still throw us an error.

Duplicate identifier Song.

2. Extends and implements

In TypeScript, we can easily extend and implement interfaces. This is not possible with types though.

for more @

When a subclass extends a class, it allows the subclass to inherit (reuse) and override code defined in the supertype.

When a class implements an interface, it allows an object created from the class to be used in any context that expects a value of the interface.

Intersection

Intersection allows us to combine multiple types into a single one type. To create an intersection type, we have to use the & keyword:

Unions

Union types allow us to create a new type that can have a value of one or a few more types. To create a union type, we have to use the | keyword.

Tuples

are a very helpful concept in TypeScript, it brought to us this new data type that includes two sets of values of different data types.

type Reponse = [string, number]

But, in TypeScript, we can only declare tuples using types and not interfaces. There’s no way we can declare a tuple in TypeScript using an interface, but you still are able to use a tuple inside an interface, like this:

interface Response {
value: [string, number]
}

We can see that we can achieve the same result as using types with interfaces.

interfaces in Typescript

An interface is a syntactical contract that an entity should conform to. In other words, an interface defines the syntax that any entity must adhere to.

Interfaces define properties, methods, and events, which are the members of the interface. Interfaces contain only the declaration of the members. It is the responsibility of the deriving class to define the members. It often helps in providing a standard structure that the deriving classes would follow.

Let’s consider an object −

var person = { 
FirstName:"Tom",
LastName:"Hanks",
sayHi: ()=>{ return "Hi"}
};

If we consider the signature of the object, it could be −

{ 
FirstName:string,
LastName:string,
sayHi()=>string
}

To reuse the signature across objects we can define it as an interface.

Declaring Interfaces

The interface keyword is used to declare an interface. Here is the syntax to declare an interface −

Syntax

interface interface_name { 
}

Example: Interface and Objects

interface IPerson { 
firstName:string,
lastName:string,
sayHi: ()=>string
}
var customer:IPerson = {
firstName:"Tom",
lastName:"Hanks",
sayHi: ():string =>{return "Hi there"}
}
console.log("Customer Object ")
console.log(customer.firstName)
console.log(customer.lastName)
console.log(customer.sayHi())
var employee:IPerson = {
firstName:"Jim",
lastName:"Blakes",
sayHi: ():string =>{return "Hello!!!"}
}

console.log("Employee Object ")
console.log(employee.firstName);
console.log(employee.lastName);

The example defines an interface. The customer object is of the type IPerson. Hence, it will now be binding on the object to define all properties as specified by the interface.

Another object with following signature, is still considered as IPerson because that object is treated by its size or signature.

How To Use Generics in TypeScript

Introduction

Following the Don’t-Repeat-Yourself (DRY) principle is important when it comes to writing dynamic and reusable code. Using generics can help you achieve this in your TypeScript code.

With generics, you can write dynamic and reusable generic blocks of code. Furthermore, you can apply generics in TypeScript to classes, interfaces, and functions.

In this article, you will integrate generics into your TypeScript code and apply them to functions and classes. You will also learn how to add constraints to generics in TypeScript by using interfaces.

Prerequisites

To successfully complete this tutorial, you will need the following:

Step 1 — Understanding Generics

Sometimes, you may want to repeat the same block of code for different data types. Here’s an example of the same function being used for two different data types:

// for number type
function fun(args: number): number {
return args;
}
// for string type
function fun(args: string): string {
return args;
}

Note that, in this example, the same function is being repeated for number and string types. Generics can help you to write generalized methods instead of writing and repeating the same block of code, as in the above example.

Alternative: There is a type called any, which you can use to achieve the same effect as generics in your code. Using the any type will allow you to opt-out of type-checking. However, any is NOT type-safe. This means that using any can give you an exception.

To see this in practice, apply the any type to the previous code example:

function fun(args: any): any {
return args;
}

Swapping number and string types to the any type makes the function generic. But there’s a catch—using the any type means that the fun function can accept any data. As a result, you are losing type safety as well.

Although using the any type is a way to make your TypeScript code more generic, it may not always be the best option. In the next step, you explore a different option for creating type-safe generics.

useCases of HOC

showing a loader, while a component waits for data

a very frequently needed feature in our app is to show a loader while a component is waiting for data to be passed into it’s props. of course an in-component solution to have a loader can work, it won’t be the most elegant solution. the idea is to create a common HOC, that can track that prop and while it’s empty, can show a loading state.

Over-riding & not Overloading

JavaScript supports overriding, not overloading. When you define multiple functions that have the same name, the last one defined will override all the previously defined ones and every time when you invoke a function, the last defined one will get executed.

There is no real function overloading in JavaScript since it allows to pass any number of parameters of any type. You have to check inside the function how many arguments have been passed and what type they are. The correct answer is THERE IS NO OVERLOADING IN JAVASCRIPT.

function foo(arg1) {
console.log(arg1);
}
function foo(arg1, arg2) {
console.log(arg1, arg2);
}
// Driver codefoo("Geeks")

The reason for the “undefined” in the output is: In JavaScript if two functions are defined with same name then the last defined function will overwrite the former function.
So in this case the foo(arg1) was overwritten by foo(arg1,arg2), but we only passed one Argument (“Geeks”) to the function. It means that the second argument is undefined, So when we tried to print the second argument, it is printed as “undefined”.

We have seen that function Overloading is not support in JavaScript, but we can implement the function Overloading on our own, which is pretty much complex when it comes to more number and more type of arguments.

Why using innerHTML sometimes is NOT recommended

there are some disadvantages to using innerHTML in JavaScript.

The use of innerHTML very slow:

The process of using innerHTML is much slower as its contents as slowly built,

also already parsed contents and elements are also re-parsed which takes time.

  • Use innerHTML when you’re setting text inside of an HTML tag like an anchor tag, paragraph tag, span, div, or textarea.
  • Use appendChild() If you’re trying to add new DOM elements inside of another DOM element.

In other words, creating a new element and appending it to the DOM tree provides better performance than the innerHTML.

createElement is more performant

You can new elements to the div element by creating an element and appending it:

let div = document.querySelector('.container');

let p = document.createElement('p');
p.textContent = 'JS DOM';
div.appendChild(p);

Using DocumentFragment for composing DOM Nodes

Assuming that you have a list of elements and you need in each iteration:

let div = document.querySelector('.container');for (let i = 0; i < 1000; i++) {
let p = document.createElement('p');
p.textContent = `Paragraph ${i}`;
div.appendChild(p);
}
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

This code results in recalculation of styles, painting, and layout every iteration. This is not very efficient.

To overcome this, you typically use a DocumentFragment to compose DOM nodes and append it to the DOM tree:

let div = document.querySelector('.container');// compose DOM nodes
let fragment = document.createDocumentFragment();
for (let i = 0; i < 1000; i++) {
let p = document.createElement('p');
p.textContent = `Paragraph ${i}`;
fragment.appendChild(p);
}
// append the fragment to the DOM tree
div.appendChild(fragment);
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

In this example, we composed the DOM nodes by using the DocumentFragment object and append the fragment to the active DOM tree once at the end.

A document fragment does not link to the active DOM tree, therefore, it doesn’t incur any performance.

Method Over-riding in TypeScript

  • Method Overriding is a concept of in where a child class can override a function of a parent class. In this, child class may or may not use the logic of a function defined in parent class.
  • We use super keyword to refer to the functions or fields of the immediate parent class.

Below is an example of method overriding USING super. If we use super, the same method of parent class is executed.

Below is the output of above code

Below is an example WITHOUT using super. If we skip super, then that method of parent class is NOR executed. Only the method of child class is executed.

Below is the output of above code

ABstract Classes

An abstract class must be declared with an abstract keyword. It can have abstract and non-abstract methods. It cannot be instantiated. It can have constructors and static methods also. It can have final methods which will force the subclass not to change the body of the method.

Does a change in props cause re-render?

A re-render can only be triggered if a component’s state has changed. The state can change from a props change, or from a direct setState change.
