  • Policyer Action
    5 projects | dev.to | 5 Dec 2021
    next we going to dive in to the actual policy, in this policy we want to verify a certain user is a reviewer, so after the call im going to point to the "users" array, then use the condition includes ([...users].includes(value)), utilities function by default includes all Lodash functions, you can add custom utilities in the provider level. I'm going to use the map utility function to prepare an array of reviewers usernames.

  • Loops, Array Methods, and Recursion

    If this approach interests you, you can dive even deeper by surveying the various array functions available in popular utility libraries suchs Lodash and (for even more extreme examples) Ramda. These libraries include composable functions (not array prototype methods) that are extremely useful once you get familiar with them.

    Personally, I try my best to avoid bringing in dependencies as much as possible, and try to limit my exposure to only dependencies with low/shallow transitive dependency counts. Unfortunately, this is pretty hard, especially in corporate settings. What we need more of are the opposite of what we've been collectively praising: we need more monolithic packages. Case in point: lodash.template is currently vulnerable with no mitigation, even though lodash itself is not. That's just sloppy publishing practices. Esbuild is a great start over the webpack/babel maze of dependencies. There's a stdlib effort along those lines that hopefully would also help. There's a bunch of micro-frameworks that are used in production just fine and have little to no dependencies.
  • Sharing and bundling multiple vendor bundles into one vendor bundle using Webpack’s module federation and split chunks plugins
    3 projects | dev.to | 5 Nov 2021
    In this post I will try to demonstrate the power of using Webpack’s ModuleFederationPlugin to share modules between two simple web applications, one acting as a host (app1) and the other one as a remote (app2). Moreover, to make it simpler, both apps will be written in plain JavaScript. The idea is that the host will load the bundles of a function, which uses one Lodash method, as well as a button component, which uses the D3 library, directly from the remote app using Webpack’s ModuleFederationPlugin. Finally, I will show you how to achieve bundling these two vendor libraries’ bundles into one bundle using Webpack’s SplitChunksPlugin, so that they can be shared between the remote and host applications as one chunk and improve performance.

    If the built-in array methods aren't sufficient, you can use a library like lodash: https://lodash.com/
