Dark mode support

Every website has to support dark mode now. Probably because of the new iPhone launch or so. Nonetheless, I added a bunch of CSS to theme as well.


Build an Apollo Graphql user authentication for your React app - part 3

September 26, 2019

This is the final post of my GraphQL Auth series. Before reading this post checkout post 1 and post 2.

As mentioned in my last post we need to polish our authentication solution. First we wanna ensure that the JWT token expires. Second, I think the isAuthenticated directive is insufficient for proper permission management on our types, queries and mutations. We need a role based solution. While the first point is simple to implement, the second is more complex and definitely requires walking through the previous posts.


Build an Apollo Graphql user authentication for your React app - part 2

August 29, 2019

In my last post we built a Graphql API that handles user authentication and authorization. In particular we added a loginUser query that returns a JWT token. This token can be used to access restricted resources. In this post I will show what the implementation looks like on Reacts side.

Thoughts on deception

July 25, 2019

I am currently reading The redemption of Time by Baoshu. It is a fan-fiction of the three-body problem trilogy. A science fiction series that was appraised by Obama himself. The fan-fiction became popular as well, so popular that it was first honored by the author of the three-body problem and then turned into a book.


Environment matters

July 8, 2019

This post gets a bit abstract. I felt uneasy publishing it. Usually, I write about solid and measurable matters. But this time I wanna talk about an unusual topic. A less graspable. Its about how we perceive ourself and our environment. How we put ourselves into perspective. I wanna talk about the very distinction between individual and environment and why it matters.
