            Should I be concerned about NPM vulnerabilities when using Vue?
            Asked 2022-Mar-24 at 09:10

            I just installed @Vue-cli and I decided to create my first project using Vue3. After running vue create hello-world and it finished building the project, the cli said 7 moderate severity vulnerabilities

            How bad are these? moderate is very subjective. I tried running npm audit fix --force which instead said 28 vulnerabilities (16 moderate, 12 high).

            Is this just one of the things you should just accept and hope that no one exploits the vulnerabilities?

            After running npm audit it said this



            Answered 2022-Mar-24 at 08:38

            On top of my other answer, I'll add that everything is hackable nowadays. Is it an issue per-se? Not really since you're not really launching rockets.

            Is it spooky? Yeah maybe because of how it sounds but at the end, if somebody in your company opens a phishing email you're exposed, so yeah: live your life and don't worry too much about it.

            Also, a as reminder: every package that you install can be malicious at some point and during various steps. If you want a 100% bullet-proof codebase, you'll need to write everything yourself from bottom to top.



            Error 11903 when developing first gatsby project
            Asked 2022-Mar-21 at 06:34

            I am trying to set up my first Gatsby website. After running npm install -g gatsby-cli, I do gatsby new gatsby-starter-hello-world (just like the website says) to download the hello world starter. When I run gatsby develop I see the following error



            Answered 2022-Mar-21 at 06:34

            As has been commented in the comments section, the issue has been solved by moving the project folder outside the OneDrive directory.

            Because it's a synchronized cloud folder, as soon as you install/add/delete/update anything, it's being updated in the OneDrive cloud so the file/folder it's being used in the background and potentially unreachable. If at this time you try to develop the project (gatsby develop or gatsby build) and the file is being used, you won't be able to run it.

            I don't think it's a good practice to use a cloud folder because the amount of data synchronized (mainly because of the node_modules) it's something to care about (it's also ignored in the .gitignore for a reason) so moving it to any other folder outside the OneDrive directory should be enough to run your project because the rest of global dependencies, according to your logs, were successfully installed.



            What's the difference between node:process and process?
            Asked 2022-Mar-14 at 20:04

            When I import node:process it works fine. However, when I try to require the same, it gives an error.

            This works fine:



            Answered 2022-Mar-14 at 20:04

            "node:" is an URL scheme for loading ECMAScript modules. As such it started for "import", not "require".

            "node:process" is just an alternative name to load the built-in "process" module.

            See also Node.js documentation - you can find the lowest supporting Node.js version inside the "History" tag (12.20.0, 14.13.1)

            With newer Node.js it should be available for "require" as well (14.18.0, 16.0.0).

            Some more details can be found here: node:process always prefers the built-in core module, while process could be loaded from a file.



            sizeof for a string in array of strings
            Asked 2022-Feb-26 at 20:22

            I'm trying to switch from python to c for sometime, I was just checking out a few functions, what caught my attention is sizeof operator which returns the size of object in bytes. I created an array of strings, and would want to find the size of the array. I know that it can be done by sizeof(array)/sizeof(array[0]). However, I find this a bit confusing.

            I expect that large array would be 2D (which is just 1D array represented differently) and each character array within this large array would occupy as many bytes as the maximum size of character array within this large array. Example below



            Answered 2022-Feb-26 at 19:08

            It's happening because sizeof(words[27]) is giving the size of a pointer and words[27] is a pointer, and pointers have a fixed size of each machine, mostly 8 bytes on a x86_64 architecture CPU. Also, words is an array of pointers.

            each of the character arrays occupy 8 bytes, including the character array "optimization".

            No, each word in words is occupying a fixed memory (their length), 8 bytes is the size of pointer which is unsigned long int, it stores the address of the word in words.

            It's common for third-party code to have type libraries of varying quality.

            The particular module that you're importing is a JavaScript file (which does not include type information). However, there is a type declaration file accompanying it at

            Deno has a mechanism for cases like these, which allows you to provide a compiler hint for the module that you're importing: the @deno-types directive. Read about it here:

            You can use it like this in your case, before the import statement:

            The error above is because you're using the Common.JS module require syntax rather than the ES module import syntax.

            I am trying to get all keys from redis, but I am running into an issue where some keys are being saved in a different slot and I am not able to fetch them, after some research I knew that redis hashes the keys and then decides where to store the key (in which slot).

            Puppeteer can't find elements when Headless TRUE
            Asked 2021-Nov-26 at 15:30

            I'm facing some problems with Puppeteer, I want to extract a list of items and succeed when headless is FALSE but not when TRUE.

            First thing first, I want to get those elements before mapping on it.

            Here's my script, maybe you can reproduce it, it is really basic.

            For starters, I'd prefer page.waitForSelector(yourSelector) over page.waitForNetworkIdle();. In most cases, it's a more direct guarantee that the data you want is on the page, whereas network idle can block waiting for all sorts of requests that are totally irrelevant to the data you're trying to scrape.

            Some websites check the headers to block scrapers. You can try adding a user agent header as described in the Puppeteer GitHub issue Different behavior between { headless: false } and { headless: true } #665:

            While forEach itself is not async-aware, that doesn't stop you from being able to push the asynchronous modification promises onto a list and awaiting for all of them at the end.

            Detect whether the terminal supports color. Used internally and handled for you, but exposed for convenience. Can be overridden by the user with the flags --color and --no-color. For situations where using --color is not possible, use the environment variable FORCE_COLOR=1 (level 1), FORCE_COLOR=2 (level 2), or FORCE_COLOR=3 (level 3) to forcefully enable color, or FORCE_COLOR=0 to forcefully disable. The use of FORCE_COLOR overrides all other color support checks. Explicit 256/Truecolor mode can be enabled using the --color=256 and --color=16m flags, respectively.
