Recently, I was involved with a project that required the client to collect payments from their customers. This brought up many questions on the best approach to process orders to accomplish this.

We wondered, is a Stripe Elements integration the answer, or can we avoid fees and process payments ourselves? For the vast majority of companies, ourselves included, yes, Stripe is the answer. The complexity of Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance alone makes this a no-brainer. In addition, the development of payment infrastructure is very time-consuming and costly.

In this blog, I will discuss Stripe Elements and its integration and the best way to implement them with React. I will cover basic Stripe information, how to set up a Stripe account, and a brief code overview to help you get on your way to incorporating Stripe…

Kendo Grid: A Primer For First-Time Users

Brian Jacobs Cloud, Development Technologies, Tutorial, Vue.js Leave a Comment

This is my take on working with Kendo Grid in a Vue 3 project. While I have not explored the grid functionality to the nth degree, these are some things I like about the grid, some difficulties I had implementing it, and some workarounds and quirks I have discovered. Specifically, I will be referring to the Vue implementation of Kendo Grid and the Native Components. This is not to be confused with the Kendo UI for Vue Wrappers.

Kendo Grid is a very robust tool for displaying data in table format. Out-of-the-box features include sorting, filtering, and pagination. Simply defining the column schema with a few config options will have the grid set up quickly. A few features that require more coding and configuration are column collapsing, adding a toolbar, displaying aggregated fields, using custom cell components, implementing column groups, and exporting grid data to a file.
