Friday Blast #36
Last week I wanted to better understand JS modules, so the bulk of the links are related to this topic. It’s a fast moving domain, so the articles cover a lot of ground.
Can I please store images in the database now? (2018) - apparently the oft-repeated anti-pattern isn’t such a big issue anymore. Databases are perfectly capable of doing a good job with
BLOBs. However, whether you want to store them there as part of a larger application is another question. Still, for internal apps, or ones where there is a very tight relationship between the data and image/video/PDF stored as a
BLOB, it might make perfect sense.
