Lego House and new generation web development.

Maybe this article is purely my intuition on the web development, it's been one and a half year I'm working with a web app, quite a lot of things I learned from here. On my exploring free time I read and implemented few projects, last night I was linking them with the Lego toys but it was almost matching and the web development has more fun than the lego.

Let's Look into what is lego? I hope most of know what it is and how we use it?

Lego

The official home of the toy building brick with links to products, games, videos, the LEGO® Shop, LEGO history, fan creations and our help center. ( from the official doc )

Example of Lego house

web app

The new generation web also has lot of building bricks with linking products, like CSS file, js files and a lot of other cdn files.

What makes difference?

You have to pay money to get for each lego price ( even though it came as a package).

You can get the almost all cdn files for free from various cdn servers like Cloudflare it will fit almost all your needs.

Let's have a look at a web app development.

I wish to create a basic note-taking application,
Step 1: use cdn for framework ( bootstrap, Semantic UI ,.....)
Step 2: use cdn for JS Library ( Jquery*, angular or react ....)
Step 3: use the tinymce library.
Step 4: use backend code.

It is very basic steps to create a web, when i ever i create a web i feel its kind of lego toy.

Cheers :D

I thought the same when I started to learn ReactJS. Once you create the main general components everything becomes like a piece of lego that you can handle in different ways across the project or even use it in others.

I see that you're using TinyMCE. I'm one of the devs who made the Froala Editor. Have you seen it? I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.
