React to WordPress - turning imagination into creation

How to Open Android AVD/SDK (Android Virtual Device) manager inside Webstorm / Phpstorm on Windows (simple workaround)

Some of you might think “why would I need to open AVD inside Webstorm?”, and maybe even be correct, as the newest versions of Android Studio working on the Intellij Engine as well(and also doing it pretty well).

But, the programmers that are working with WebStorm or PhpStorm on the daily, they wouldn’t want to move to Android Studio every time they decide to work on a React Native project.

As one of those “programmers”, I have found a simple workaround that works for me. Follow this steps, and you will be able to use Android AVD within WebStorm in no-time.

Using same slug for custom post type and custom taxonomy

It is fairly common that you, as a website manager, would like to use the same slug for custom post type as for custom taxonomy, but it is not a simple thing to do if you are not familiar with WordPress permalink structures.

I will explain, say your archive page is `` – that is the page that will hold all of your posts under the `web-tutorials` custom post type. Now you want your web-tutorial(a singular post) URL to be

web-tutorials Will be your custom post type slug.

What is React? And why you should learn it!

As a developer that loves learning new technologies and never stay behind, I decided to leave Angular(with the exit of Angular 2) and move to a different world. Faster, stronger, better and more advanced – the React world, and I have never looked back.

Before we even start talking about React, I want to share my 2 cents. As a developer, I have never enjoyed writing code as much as I enjoy doing it with React.

What is React?

In the most simplest of words, React is a small Javascript library for creating intuitive web-application, fast and with as minimum code as possible.

Many are comparing Angular to React, which is incorrect. React is a small view library, as on the other hand, Angular is a full-blown MV* framework.

The founder of React, Jordan Walke, Facebook software engineer, wanted to create a better solution for everyday problems of a front end developer. He wanted to do a much better, smarter, faster way of creating web-application, and yes – he succeeded.

Today, React is being developed by Facebook themselves, although it is a somewhat new technology, React already has million of front end developers supporting and using it in their own projects. The most common ones,  still would be Facebook Feed and Instagram.
