@kulboi4real If you have to think of test cases for TDD. I am sorry but either one of two things are wrong.

1) The top-level functional requirements aren’t properly done and/or understood by the team or software engineer working on it

2) You don’t know how to translate requirements to tests @kulboi4real Translating takes understanding of what’s important to the success of that functionality.

For instance How would you test a React component OR a web route on the backend in the context of the business rules that make it function ?

There’s a simple trick to this and I’ll share

Having problems with #CORS (Cross Origin Resource Sharing) almost every time ?
Wondering why you mostly always run into a blocked request ?

Remember that it's all about 3 rules that aren't mutually exclusive.

I'll be writing about them in 10 mins time (don't miss it)

#Thread What is CORS ?

Simply defined as a access control security restriction that is used to limit cross-domain communication based on the origin of a web site or app.

The key word here is Access Control - which is about authorization of http requests

I know you have heard of password #Salts which are similar to Nonces and used to add uniqueness to passwords and protect against pre-computed hashes (rainbow tables).

Did you also know about password #Peppers ? They are equally important too. In modern web applications of today, you should #Pepper your passwords as well as #Salt them too before hashing them. Here is the order:

Original Password ---> Salt ---> Pepper ---> Hash ---> Store-In-DB.

However, if you #Pepper passwords wrongly. It could be very disastrous!

Finally, when you are building a #PWA & setting up a service worker, this is how i feel your fetch event handler should be to handle a myriad of edge cases:

Part 1:
This part shows a CACHE FIRST LOOKUP. Also notice when the app is offline. Setup fetch to work with the HTTP cache Part 2:
This part show a NETWORK NEXT LOOKUP. We detect errors with the fetch request first and return early. Then detect server-sent events and return too. Then split the by content type: html,css,js,svg responses gets put in the cache and json responses gets put in IndexedDB.
