Hiring software development talent challenge

It seems that an ideal interview does not exist. Firstly, such standard prefixes as "junior-middle-senior-lead" are not universal, as each company has its own ratings and metrics and there is too much variety of necessary skills. Moreover, recruitment metrics also change with the growth of the company.

Setup prerender on webpack with prerender-spa-plugin, Part 2

Let say we have pages, which are not in the prerender routes list for some reason. For example, pages which are visible only for logged in users or ones that are not needed for crawlers, etc. For those pages, the server will return the prerender file for the home page, which is not good. We need to return the initial HTML file which is generated during the webpack build for such pages.

Setup prerender on webpack with prerender-spa-plugin, Part 1

During developing SPA (Single Page Application) we met with a common SPA problem: although google crawler uses the last Chromium version to run JS and indexing results as HTML pages (it’s not so easy to make it work and there is still the Fix Search-related JavaScript problems list), but for other search systems and sharing in social networks SPA doesn’t work. They will get the default index.html with the default title, description, etc for all pages.

Recommended security practices

Choosing simple and fast solutions over security is not our way. We have worked with many projects that required a high level of security. Over the years we’ve learned to find a balance between the project budget, high-security standards, and better experience for the end-user. In Webdevelop Pro we strive to incorporate security into every product that we create.

Smooth links transitions on dynamic content in Vuejs Application

Usually links inside Vue.js app handle by vue-router and router-link component. It makes a transition between routes without reloading page. The smooth and slick user interface is one of the advantages of Single Page Applications. In the case with CMS content, links are inside content and can’t be processing separately but inserting as one HTML part with `v-html` directive. Such links on click will reload page even if they follow the same app page.
