Making a repo of Jokes
Le Me was bored again…. #
After all the deliberating on what I am supposed to do for the website, I decided to make a database of jokes in order to spread
joy and laughter to others. While I’m at it, why not make some lame jokes :D.
Database boi #
As I am still a database
SCRUB, I decided to use one-liner jokes in a text file and parse it based on that. I copy and pasted some jokes from an API (Can’t remember what it is but if you know who it is please let me know) and stored them into a text file. Oh boy, time for my good old friend python
# Read the code with open('jokes.txt') as file: data = tuple(map(lambda x: x.strip(), file.readlines())) # Load the route to the page @app.route('/jokes', methods = ['POST', 'GET']) def jokes_page(): # Search algorithm here # Random joke will be picked when u access the page at the start return render_template('jokes.html', jokes = jokes_list)
Hopefully, after I learn more about databases this semester, I will be able to put all this stuff into a database and load it from there.
On a side note…. #
Meanwhile, if you guys have any recommendations for one-liner jokes to be added to the database, please do let me know. If I find them funny, I will add your name to the credits of the jokes. (Hopefully my jokes are funny enuf)
