BroadcastChannel()

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we take a look at the BroadcastChannel() object. No, it has nothing to do with broadcasting reruns of “Hello, Larry” over the Internet, but it does let you easily communicate between any tabs, windows, and even iFrames of your application within a browser. Sounds exciting, right? Right? Guaranteed to put you to sleep within five minutes or your money back (no, not really). Watch it today!

String.replaceAll()

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we talk about the String.replaceAll() method. Wait … don’t we already have a String.replace() method? Why do we need a replaceAll()? Well, that’s a good question. And I can only answer that if you open up the video. Grab some snacks, put away the sleeping pills, and get lulled to sleep as I tell you all about String.replaceAll(). #javascript #replaceall

String.padStart, String.padEnd

Hi everyone, and welcome to another snore-fest of an edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, I tackle the String.padStart() and String.padEnd() methods. Ever wanted to create your own pad? Well, go to Zillow or something, because the pad we’re going to talk about deals with quick and easy methods to left or right justify text. Sounds exciting, right? You bet! So crank up the Video Viewer, sit back, and see if you fall asleep within five minutes of watching this gripping video.

Gamepad

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript. Today, we’re going to have a little bit of fun – we’ll show you how to connect up your gamepad to the browser! That’s right – that billion dollar indie game you’ve been dreaming about can now become a reality with the very simple methods we’ll show you in the video. And if you create that game – just let me know so we can all bask in your glory. Great video, great subject, maybe a little boring. Check it out! #javascript #gamepad

Array.from()

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we tackle the Array.from() method. Have you every wondered how to convert everyday array-like objects or iterable objects into Arrays?

No?

Oh, yes you have.

Well, wonder no more, as the video dives into the quick and easy methods of converting those funny iterable objects into Arrays. Open up the video, sit back, relax, and fall asleep.

DataView()

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript. Today, we tackle the DataView() object. And I mean REALLY tackle it! Over 30 minutes of telling you all about the DataView() object and how to use it to map JavaScript variables to your binary data stream. Yes, that’s right – over 30 minutes of sleep-inducing video! Discover the very definition of boring and watch the video. #javascript #dataview

export

Hi everyone, and welcome to another sleepy edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we tackle the export command, which allows you to make JavaScript variables in one JavaScript file available to another JavaScript file. Remember our J058: import video? No? Well, believe me, export is just like import, only in reverse. In fact, we use the same code (with just a few modifications). What can be more sleepy than duplicated code? Come find out and watch the video!

String.charAt()

Hi everyone, and welcome to a QUICK edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we tackle the String.charAt() method. Ever wonder how to retrieve a specific character from a string? Well, wonder no more! String.charAt() is perfect and getting that character so greatly desired. And the video is shorter than normal – it may not be able to put you to sleep! Fire up the video viewer and take a quick look. #javascript #charat

parseFloat()

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript! Today we take a look at the parseFloat() method. Do you have a string that you think might be a floating point number? Then let parseFloat() do the hard work for you! Take a string, or a number – in fact, only a string or a number – and let parseFloat() give you back that number for which you’ve been searching. Talk about BORING! Snuggle up, watch the video, and fall asleep fast. #javascript #parsefloat

import

Hi everyone, and welcome to another sleep-inducing edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we tackle the import statement. No, we’re not going to begin a dissertation on import and export policies of the early 19th century European countries – yes, I know you’re disappointed. Instead, we’re going to show you how you can bring in objects from other JavaScript files into your application. It’s easy! It’s fun! And it’s a sleeper. Check it out and get the snooze of your week. #javascript #import
