I have a few suggestions, all meant to be constructive and in the interest of bringing things perhaps a little more up to date and some good learning:
- Bootstrap is on v4.3.1 now, you’re using very little functionality so if you wanted to learn a bit of SASS it’s a good oppotunity
- You need jQuery for Bootstrap but perhaps try doing the same with vue.js it would be pretty easy and good learning just using their standard documentation (no need for the CLI tools)
- Try using axios for your API calls in conjunction with the above
Thankfully I haven’t used any of the jokes on my kids… yet!
