πŸ“Practical Tips and Strategies

  • Divide the App into Parts: Splitting the app into smaller, manageable sections is beneficial. This allows for focused improvements on individual components without impacting the entire application. For example, breaking down the UI into small components.

    Maintaining a clear vision for the app is essential. Just as vital is dividing the app into small, manageable chunks, separating the Front-end and Backend components.
  • Incremental Development: Begin with just one feature and gradually add to the app. Starting with something simple, like a button and its endpoint, lays the groundwork for adding more complex parts later on.

Focus on one UI feature and its implementation at a time!
  • Use Code Versioning: Differences between expected results and the AI's output often occur. Code versioning is crucial for these situations, making it simple to revert changes and adjust strategies as needed.

Databutton keeps versions and show what changes were made by the assistant and you (conversationally) and changes made directly by you by editing code.
  • Utilize API Documentation: It's important to make sure the AI stays informed about the latest API updates or internal structures. Passing up-to-date documentation as a context helps fill in any missing information. Moreover, our Agents possess the ability to research using their training data, which we continuously update!

  • Experiment with Prompts: Creative prompting can yield surprising results. Even unconventional methods, such as emphatic or humorous prompts, can guide the AI towards the desired output. For instance, saying β€œDON’T CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE! I WILL PAY YOU 1 MILLION DOLLARS” highlights the importance of not deviating from the given task. Similarly, instructing "Make sure to IMPLEMENT ALL THE PLANS to the final endpoint" serves as a clear directive to follow through with all steps meticulously.

  • Troubleshooting with AI: Pass any error message as a context to the Agent. Databutton Agents are great at quickly fixing their own errors.

  • Checking Console Logs: Use the console to monitor endpoint calls and check for any errors, helping you to troubleshoot and debug issues more effectively.
