35 brilliantly designed 404 error pages

  • But in recent years, creatives have taken up the challenge of designing bespoke 404 pages that use humour, great UX or beautiful design to at least sweeten the pill of finding you’re in the wrong place.
  • While flexible cloud servers sound useful, they’re not exactly fun, which we guess is why the company has had so much fun with its tongue-in-cheek 404 error page.
  • To better our visitors’ experience, our team dedicated themselves to creating an interactive game on our 404 page to enhance visitors time on our site and specifically their interaction with our error page.
  • The style of the 404 page fits the rest of the site design nicely, reflecting the same lighthearted approach that turns an otherwise boring task into something fun and endearing.
  • Proving that 404 error pages don’t have to be funny to be well done, US auto repair company Repair Pal uses beautiful imagery to brilliant effect.

Setting up Windows to Build and Run Node.js Applications

  • In this post, Ill talk you through how we get our Windows command-line environments set up for the Node.js (actually, Electron) application my team is developing.
  • For just Node.js, youll want the nodejs package, plus nvm for version management with NVM: – – If your project uses Yarn, as ours does, you can grab that from Scoop, as well: – – If youre planning on checking out or committing code to GitHub, youll also want tools…
  • , I recommend you install Sudo, which knows how to elevate privileges inside a PowerShell session without spawning a brand new one: – – The next thing youll want to do is make sure youre on the right version of Node.js for your project.
  • If you use a version and it doesnt seem to be taking effect, check your environment variable in the System Properties control panel (search for environment); its probably been re-ordered.
  • Extensions like these are built with node-gyp, and node-gyp needs two things: Python (2… wince) and a C compiler, neither of which are standard equipment on a Windows system.

Node.js Backend Development – Implementing Improved Routing – DiscoverSDK Blog

  • Our intention is to develop a sophisticated web application without using any third party web development framework for Node.js.
  • In this way you will not only learn how to develop a web application with Node.js, but also you will learn how to create a framework or library of your own when you see recurring patterns in your domain.
  • In the previous article we implemented routing system in our application and now its easier than ever before to add another URL pattern and a handler/view for it.
  • Code for the current article can be found on the branch named the previous article we implemented a routing system in our application in a way that everything worked as before.
  • To keep things dynamic let’s create a variable in the routes module named view_404 that will hold a handler for responding to the user agent when a non existent URL is requested.
