  • How to use Preact with Astro

    Preact is a "Fast 3kB alternative to React with the same modern API". It's smaller than React but shares most of it's features (Hooks, Context), so you can write normal React code but benefit from better performance.
  • Don't Optimize Your React App, Use Preact Instead
    4 projects | | 1 Nov 2021
    A few months ago, I wrote an article based on optimizing react loading time, and most of the reader's comments were to try Preact to get default optimization. So I decided to try preact with the same app used for the previous article. Let's first get an intro about Preact.
  • 🥑 Put your React on a diet

    For a long time I heard people complaining that React & ReactDOM has a huge size, and everyone recommended to use Preact instead.

  • Build an Embeddable Widget using Preact and the Shadow DOM
    5 projects | | 13 Oct 2021
    As we added 3rd party libraries, our bundle size grew. We found that Preact was a good solution to this problem. It provides all the same features as React, but in a much smaller package. You can compare the unpacked size of Preact to a combined React and React-DOM and see a significant difference!
  • Reactive Clojure: You don't need a web framework, you need a web language

    Preact is React without the fluff -

    loc in a node project is hard to judge due to packages and the aforementioned mono repo difference, but the preact functional build artefact is an order of magnitude smaller:

  • I smashed a bug and I liked it
    3 projects | | 20 Sep 2021
    I'm not a Ruby on Rails or Preact person. But after reading the Forem docs, I got interested in both ecosystems. And the best way to dive deeper into the language or the framework is to write something in it. So I decided to roll out the Forem platform build locally and try to make something with it. I started from the second step ("What?") to incentivize the first one ("How?") for myself better.
  • Building an image processing pipeline with Fauna's streaming
    6 projects | | 8 Sep 2021
    For our front end we will be using Preact, a fast and small React-like library. We'll also be using Htm by the same author so that we can use JSX without having to configure a build setup.
  • Where can I learn to properly store an API key on the backend of Create-React-App?
    4 projects | | 16 Aug 2021
    There's a lot of libraries in between of course, and make for great exploration targets. Things like Preact offer a better React experience by mimicking the React API but with far better perf and bundle size. Other tools that offer more exotic APIs, if you're up learn something completely new. Point is, there's options.
