What is your worst typo trigger?

I just started to learning React and I keep type status instead of state.

// App.js with React
state = {something: 'whatever'}

vs

$ git status

I also had a hard time with self vs this when I was studying Python and JavaScript at the same time, as well as a.length vs len(a). I heard that people using R are experiencing a similar thing.

What is yours?

I can't type an 'in' ending with adding a 'g'. I do it constantly.

  • /usr/bing
  • loging

Too many years of it now to break the habbit. But I have found I do it less in programming than in other forms of writing. Something about the way the braing(!) is wired while coding...

 

lol this is interesting... There might be just less -in words in coding. Thanks for sharing yours.

 

making a typo in for loops: arr.lenght instead of arr.length.
This tripped me over more than once. It hasn't happened in ages because of intellisense and a better editor setup but I'm still so focused on it.

 

I also used to make a similar typo.
Yes, surely editors are helpful. Never want to go back to Notepad++.

 

I always type "food" instead of "good", especially when it's close to lunch break

 

After the typo your lunch must be food good. 😝

 
 

Their is no worse typo, in my opinion, then those using there/their/they're wrong.

 

You just made me go through reading my post again to make sure I didn't make that typo.

 

Haha sorry. It was supposed to be funny, because I intentionally used the wrong one in my reply 😊

Don't worry it was funny🀣, even myself doing that was also funny.

 
cosnt foo = 'bar'

This one gets me every time.

 

lol I was even having a hard time finding what you are talking about.
