I launched an AngularJS redesign on a large-scale e-commerce site in late 2015– just two short weeks after Google announced the death of the Ajax crawler. As we launched there was no documentation on how a Googlebot would understand that site. We knew we didn’t need escaped fragment URLs, but did we need to pre-cache #! versions of URLs? Our team didn’t have the bandwidth and our system couldn’t handle the tech debt pre-caching would create.
In part 1 of the Raspberry Pi Dashcam Series, we talked about how to create a powerful and low-cost embedded computing platform for “always on” live dashboard camera broadcast using the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and the Raspberry Pi 8MP Camera Module. With this hardware setup, we can broadcast high- or low-quality images at a fixed interval and have them immediately picked up by our receiver user interface. To make things fun on the UI side, we’ve decided to use AngularJS to highlight PubNub’s new and improved AngularJS SDK – we’ve had a great time using it so far.
