Using the Vanilla JS Component template with LAMP

I use the Vanilla JS Component at https://github.com/guitarbeerchocolate/vanilla-js-component, and you have LAMP server on my box. However, when I want to call PHP scripts which are on the LAMP server such as, in a POST request using fetch or XHR within JavaScript I get the following errors in my browser:
Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'http://localhost/test/vanilla-js-POST-JSON/login.php' from origin 'http://localhost:8080' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.

postjson_xhr.js:19 Cross-Origin Read Blocking (CORB) blocked cross-origin response http://localhost/test/vanilla-js-POST-JSON/login.php with MIME type text/html. See https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629709824032768 for more details.

Obviously, it's treating the LAMP server like another domain.

The way to fix this is to put a line at the top of your PHP script thus:
header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *');
Happy coding.

Vanilla JavaScript Login form POST handler using fetch

I've been updating my gists lately because I'm now in position to leave jQuery behind. See https://gist.github.com/guitarbeerchocolate
So, here's how to pass login form data to some middleware and accept JSON in return using fetch.

const form = document.querySelector('form');
form.addEventListener('submit', function(ev) {
  ev.preventDefault();
  const url = this.getAttribute('action');
  const method = this.getAttribute('method');

  fetch(url, {
    method: method,
    body: new FormData(form)
  }).then(function(response) {
    return response.json()
  }).then(function(json) {
    console.log('json.username', json.username)
    console.log('json.password', json.password)
  }).catch(function(error) {
    console.log('parsing failed', error)
  })
});

Get blogspot content using JavaScript fetch

This example pulls in JSON data from a blog hosted on blogspot.com

First, I'll need to get fetch.
To add it to your project, change to your project directory:
cd myApp
Then use the following command:
npm install node-fetch --save

const fetch = require('node-fetch');
const url = 'http://some-website.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/blog?alt=json';
var myFetch = fetch(url);

myFetch.then(response => response.json()).then(function(data) {
  showMyData(data);
}).catch(function(err)
{
  console.log('Caught an error ',err);
});

function showMyData(md) {
  md.feed.entry.forEach((e) => {
    var title = (e.title.$t || '');
var url = (e.link || []).pop().href;
    var date = new Date(e.updated.$t || Date.now());
    var lessLines = e.content.$t.substr(0, 800);
    var months = ["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"];
    var theMonth = months[date.getMonth()];
    var theYear = date.getFullYear();
  });
}

The 2018 Web Developer : JavaScript JSON processing without jQuery

Enter 'fetch'. The JavaScript API which performs HTTP requests.
First, I'll need to get fetch.
To add it to your project, change to your project directory:
cd myApp
Then use the following command:
npm install node-fetch --save

In this example, I have a simple .json file which contains a set of URLs and their types.

const fetch = require('node-fetch');
const url = 'feeds.json';
var myFetch = fetch(url);

myFetch.then(response=>response.json()).then(function(data) {
    showMyData(data);
  });

function showMyData(md)
{
  md.forEach((value) => {
    console.log(value.URL, value.TYPE);
  });
}
