In this video, Emmanuel Henri provides some details around where to find the exercise files and how to use them. Each video has a start and end state of the application, and can be used accordingly to follow along.
- [Instructor] To get the exercise files on the course page click on the tab named exercise files, then download the ZIP file, then extract the ZIP file and move the folder to your desktop. So, once you get the exercise files on your desktop, you can click here and get to the proper chapters and then videos, and grab the end or start state for each video. So, once you start a video these are the files for that specific start, and then, if you click on the end, this is the end of the video. But one thing that I really want you to pay attention is that, if you copy those files right now, it would not work, because there is some hidden files that we need in here.
So we want to make sure that you see the hidden files, so the way you do this in MAC is, you go in your terminal. So basically you need to do the first command here, so, defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES. And let's do it here, and once you have that done you need to relaunch finder, and you do that by doing Option + Right Click, and then click on Relaunch. And then we should see the hidden files, and if you see DS_Store on your desktop, that means that you can see them.
And as I mentioned, the babelrc file is one of the most important one, when you are doing ES6 syntax, because it will compile the code from ES6 to a version that the server can actually read. So, that file is very important, so if you don't see the hidden files, if you don't see babelrc then your server is not going to work. So make sure you see those. The second thing that I want to mention is that there is a folder called server files. Let me show it to you, if you go to, for example, four, 04_03, and start, there is a folder called server.
So these two files are needed when we set up our server, so, our redis server needs those files and the changes that I make to the configuration files I actually copy those files in the exercise file. So, if you were to pick up at 04_03 at this stage, without having done anything of my course, you wouldn't need to copy and paste those two files in the redis installation, so you wouldn't need to copy those files and then go into the computer, let's go into home.
and go into your redis installation here, and then paste them so you can see them here. So, if you have your redis installation somewhere else on your computer or if you're using Windows, please find the installation for redis and paste those files in there. One quick note for the Windows users, in the exercise files you'll see there are configuration files for Windows as well, and they're labeled redis.windows.conf and then, redis2.windows.conf, so please use those for server configuration.
