a is the new library by Adrian Latorre.
The library is still in development, but it's safe to use in production (at your own risk).

How it works

The usage of a is pretty straightforward. Here are some examples:


    // import the library first
    import a from 'a'

    a.hi()       // Prints 'Hi'
    a.contact()  // Sends an email to a.latorrecrespo@gmail.com
    a.chat()     // Sends also an email to a.latorrecrespo@gmail.com
    a.call()     // As you cannot call from node, it just prints the phone +34661858060
    a.bye()      // Prints 'Bye'
  

I know that it's a little bit difficult to grasp at first, but with a little bit of effort, one gets used to it. You can try the actions without having to download the library:

Dependencies

Without those libraries, hea wouldn't work. Contrary to what is common, more and more dependencies are beeing added as time passes.


    dependencies: {
      javascript-es6,
      node,
      express,
      sass,
      android-even-if-its-not-a-node-library,
      kotlin-too,
      mocha,
      webpack
    },
    devDependencies: {
      vuejs,
      gridsome,
      nuxt,
      react-hooks,
      gatsby,
      vuex,
      async-await-polyfill
      babel,
      date-fn,
      cool-css-animations,
      github-addict,
    }

Everis

Barcelona, 2013 - Sept 2015

One of the most important IT consultancies in Spain. First real world implementation of a in production. Of course, a lot of bugs were found but fixed and improved until reaching the status of Solutions Analyst.

Demos

But a is not only used in serious companies. It can be used for a lot of things. Here are some examples.

Open source projects

  • vue-multianalytics: A Vuejs library to implement event tracking over multiple platforms.
  • moneeda-node: A cryptocurrencies node library to call moneeda (another project from Adrian Latorre, but private) API endpoints. Basically, a library that implements all the possible calls to Cryto exchanges such as Gdax, Bitfinex, Kraken, Bittrex, Binance and Liqui.
  • angular-typeform: The typeform platform didn't work with angular 1, so we did a library to make it happen.
  • restaurand: Android application that suggests random restaurants from your favorites. Implements all kind of Google APIs.
  • University final project: Android application that uses Wifi-direct and GCM to find real-time parking spots and an notify emergencies.

Other projects

Yep, a is also used in more private projects, such as friends/family webpages. A must check is Espacio Meraki
