Continuing to play around with image uploading so it is more dependable - here is a sample of 25 random images from my ssd - of the 25 I asked it to upload in sequence initially, two partially failed, and eight failed to materialize altogether, and the node express api did not crash, which is a huge improvement.
This was accomplished with adding only one async call in the image upload loop to the angular side, but I have a feeling that continuing to tweek the node api will also potentially alleviate more issues. Regardless, errors can happen, and what with no proper error handling on the server, I should not be surprised my results are unsatisfactory. Some work has been done on the node side, but it’s mainly trial and error as I am a JS idiot.
Anyways - that’s one small improvement on the backend down - hopefully many more to go.
