Building Custom Components with ChatGPT
Hey everyone, it's Tim from Tadabase, and welcome to another episode of Build It with Tim! Today, we're diving into an exciting journey of using ChatGPT to craft custom components for your database application.
Have you ever felt like a web development novice? Well, I'm right there with you. But fear not, because we're about to explore how ChatGPT can transform the way you design and build powerful custom components.
Our goal for this episode is to construct social media posts within a custom component using ChatGPT's assistance. So let's break down the steps.
1. Setting the Stage: In our database application, we're dealing with data that needs to be displayed as social media posts. While traditional methods like the list component could work, we're going for something more dynamic – the custom component.
2. Unleash ChatGPT: We're going to leverage ChatGPT to help us create this custom component. By asking the right questions and feeding our data to ChatGPT, we'll receive HTML and CSS templates that resemble social media posts.
4. Dialogue with ChatGPT: We're selecting the list type to display all records from our social media posts table. Here's where the magic happens – ChatGPT will guide us through identifying and assigning fields within the custom component.
5. Overcoming Hurdles: Our data includes comma-separated strings for user avatars and usernames who liked a post. This is where ChatGPT truly shines. It helps us create custom helpers using the Handlebars.js library, breaking down these strings into individual elements.
6. Iterative Refinement: The conversation between us and ChatGPT evolves as we refine our design. We tweak templates, test, and adapt based on the suggestions ChatGPT provides.
7. Crafting the Final Product: After some back-and-forth, we've refined our custom component with a more realistic design. The interactive process with ChatGPT has enabled us to adjust layouts and styles, resulting in a polished and professional outcome.
8. The Grand Finale: In the end, we've mastered the art of using ChatGPT to create beautifully tailored components for our web app. No coding expertise? No worries! ChatGPT acts as a knowledgeable guide, helping us navigate the intricacies of custom web development within Tadabase.
So there you have it – the exhilarating journey of using ChatGPT to build and design dynamic components in Tadabase. Ready to unleash your web development potential? Watch this video and embark on your coding adventure today. Thanks for joining, and until next time, take care!
