Setup electron and sqlite3 in windows




I am writing this post to share the information that will be helpful to you to setup the electron and sqlite3 in windows environment.

Setup of electron is quite simple but sqlite3 is some tricky to setup.So to setup electron and sqlite3 with minimum setup is as follows.


Install NodeJs





Install the electron-prebuilt 




Install the electron-rebuild as dev dependency




Install the sqlite3



Now it is time to pull node-gyp


node-gyp is a cross-platform command-line tool written in Node.js for compiling native addon modules for Node.js. It bundles the gyp project used by the Chromium team and takes away the pain of dealing with the various differences in build platforms.

For detail node-gyp



Now we have to install build tools consisting   python 2.7 and visual c++  dependency so gyp can built our native module. Just run the command shown below and it will pull the necessary files automatically. I recommend to use this.


This command will take lots of time to download files. But don't close until you get message of successful installation of python and visual studio.  you might fill that visual studio is not installing but it is installing behind scene. So wait until it finish downloading and installation.


At last check that if your python env variable is set by running python in cmd



At end put this command in your package.json under scripts :

"rebuild": "electron-rebuild -f -w sqlite3"

finally your package.json should look like this.

{
"name": "sqlitetu",
"version": "1.0.0",
"description": "This is the tutorial for the sqllite",
"main": "index.js",
"scripts": {
"test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1",
"start": "electron .",
"rebuild": "electron-rebuild -f -w sqlite3"
},
"author": "",
"license": "ISC",
"dependencies": {
"electron-prebuilt": "^1.4.13",
"sqlite3": "^3.1.8"
},
"devDependencies": {
"electron-rebuild": "^1.5.10"
}
}


In the last setup run the command npm run rebuild and you done.



Hope you find it useful.

Firebase - update a spacific fields of single element of object of array in firestore

Firebase - update a spacific fields of single element of object of array in firestore  Its actully advisable to use map instead of array when ever it is possible. But, there are cetain cases where you don't have option to do so.  For example, you are directly saving the response from some outer source without any modification and they send you an array. In this case you will have array to work with. Firestore does not support array here is why  "bad things can happen if you have multiple clients all trying to update or delete array elements at specific indexes. In the past, Cloud Firestore addressed these issues by limiting what you can do with arrays " For more details information you can refer to Kato Richardson post Best Practices: Arrays in Firebase .  Firestore document having array [ used from stackoverflow question ] Suppose you have array of object something like shown in array. Now you want to update endTime field of the object on the index [1]
