- using the npm utility to manage node.js packages
- dependencies are saved in packages.json
- dependencies in package.json get installed whenever you run npm install without any arguments
- run npm install –save to persist dependencies in package.json
- run npm install -g [package] to install package to a folder that is in the PATH environment variable
- run npm install [package] to install package to the project folder, node_modules
- the project-level folder, node_modules, should be ignored in version control. (add a line containing node_modules to .gitignore in git)
- argument (論述)
- an argument is a series of statements typically used to persuade someone of something or to present reasons for accepting a conclusion.
- In logic, an argument requires a set of (at least) two declarative sentences (or “propositions“) known as the premises along with another declarative sentence (or “proposition”) known as the conclusion.
- 世界上只有一個中國 (premise)
- 台灣是中國的一部份 (premise)
- 中華人民共和國政府是中國的唯一合法政府 (conclusion)
- statement (敘述/主張)
- In logic, a statement is either (a) a meaningful declarative sentence that is either true or false,
- or (b) that which a true or false declarative sentence asserts
- proposition (命題/主張)
- It is used to refer to some or all of the following: the primary bearers of truth-value, the objects of belief and other “propositional attitudes” (i.e., what is believed, doubted, etc.), the referents of that-clauses and the meanings of declarative sentences.
- Propositions are the sharable objects of attitudes and the primary bearers of truth and falsity.
- premise (前提)
- A premise is a statement that an argument claims will induce or justify a conclusion.
- In other words: a premise is an assumption that something is true.
- condition (條件)
- the Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy defines ‘condition’ in an important sense not explained above: a condition is a state of affairs, “way things are” or situation—most commonly referred to by a nominalization of a sentence.
- state of affairs
- In philosophy, a state of affairs, also known as a situation, is a way the actual world must be in order to make some given proposition about the actual world true; in other words, a state of affairs (situation) is a truth-maker, whereas a proposition is a truth-bearer. Whereas states of affairs (situations) either obtain or fail-to-obtain, propositions are either true or false.
- declarative sentence or declaration (陳述句)
- interrogative sentence or question (疑問句)
- exclamatory sentence or exclamation (驚歎句)
- imperative sentence or command (祈使句)

- conditional statement

apply()method calls a function with a given
argumentsprovided as an array (or an array-like object).
bind()method creates a new function that, when called, has its
thiskeyword set to the provided value, with a given sequence of arguments preceding any provided when the new function is called.
call()method calls a function with a given
thisvalue and arguments provided individually.
- Note: While the syntax of this function is almost identical to that of
apply(), the fundamental difference is that
call()accepts an argument list, while
apply()accepts a single array of arguments.
Bruce bought two pieces of DataTraveler USB 3.0 128GB (DT101G3) yesterday and found out that it is actually a USB 2.0 equivalent product in terms of data transfer rate (but it is equipped with a USB 3.0 interface indeed).
Kingston lures consumers with the USB 3.0 interface but sidesteps the issue of poor data transfer rate. In terms of this, DataTraveler USB 3.0 (DT101G3) is a fake USB 3.0.
Don’t buy it. I was really disappointed with these sneaky marketing tricks from Kinston.
