Setting up RequireJS and AngularJS without the fuzz

Getting RequireJS and AngularJS to play along nicely together can be quite the hurdle for many of us. The main thing that throws us off track is this peculiar situation were you suddenly have two frameworks that both handle dependency injection. After spending a considerate amount of time debunking and refining, I managed to come up with a setup that is as clean as possible and still let’s the two frameworks coexist. Since this seems to be a recurring topic with a lack of good articles on how to solve it, I decided I would share my solution to the problem.

Japanese – Pets ペット

This time the theme is pets. What is good to know when it comes to writing the words for different animals in japanese, is that it is more common to write them in katakana than kanji.

  • Dog 犬 (Inu)
  • Cat 猫 (Neko)
  • Guinea Pig モルモット (Morumotto)
  • Hamster ハムスター (Hamusutaa)
  • Rat ラット (Ratto)
  • Mouse ネズミ (Nezumi)
  • Rabbit 兎 (Usagi)
  • Lizard トカゲ (Tokage)
  • Spider 蜘蛛 (Kumo)
  • Snake 蛇 (Hebi)
  • Turtle 亀 (Kame)
  • Fish 魚 (Sakana)
  • Goldfish 金魚 (Kingyou)
  • Beetle カブトムシ (Kabutomushi)
  • Phasmatidae ナナフシ (Nanafushi)
  • Bird 鳥 (Tori)
  • Budgie セキセイインコ (Sekiseiinko)
  • Parrot パロット (Parotto)

Learning japanese

For some time now I have sporadically commited myself to learning japanese with varying outcomes. Earlier I have mostly focused on learning the romaji versions of words and payed little to no attention of the formal kanji (漢字) characters. Although mastering katakana (カタカナ) and hiragana (ひらがな) was something I did years ago, with the exception of forgetting some of the lesser used characters. But recently I felt a strong urge to seriously study and mastering the art of reading and writing kanji. Therefore I am regularly going to post about what I have learned and share any tips, tricks and mnemonics that have helped me in my quest.

One quick tip that I can share right away is to check out Japanese in a Month (Google Play and Itunes) from Learn Like Kids. You learn by hearing and reading the words while viewing a picture. You are never given a translation and have to solely rely on your association skills. This in fact turns out to be an extremely fast way of building up your vocabulary and I have seldomly not understood the given word. Sure, it can be unclear from time to time but you usually figure it out later on when you get a bit more context in the latter lessons.

Nystart med WordPress

Har bestämt mig för att uppdatera webbplatsen genom att köra WordPress. Kommer troligtvis att ta sin goda tid att få till utseendet som jag vill, men under tiden tänker jag i alla fall passa på att publicera lite smått och gott.
