Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning proxy-lens yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
The gotcha of unhandled promise rejections
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Jan 2023
I was happy when Promise became available, but in retrospect I'd wish we would have skipped ahead and gotten Observable (e.g: https://rxjs.dev/) instead to enable more powerful functionality and composition etc.
In Typescript dealing with rejection is also painful since rejection reasons can't be guaranteed to be Error even when you always take care of that. And it can't help you guarantee that you're handling all types of errors thrown. For that purpose I'm thinking of using https://github.com/supermacro/neverthrow#readme or https://swan-io.github.io/boxed.
Boxed: Functional utility types and functions for TypeScript
I Avoid Async/Await
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Apr 2022
Agree that try/catch is verbose and not terribly ergonomic, but my solution has been to treat errors as values rather than exceptions, by default. It's much less painful to achieve this if you use a library with an implementation of a Result type, which I admin is a bit of a painful workaround, but worth it. I've recently been using: https://github.com/swan-io/boxed.
By far the greatest benefit is being able to sanely implement a type-safe API. To me, it is utter madness throwing custom extensions of the Error class arbitrarily deep in the call-stack, and then having a catch handler somewhere up the top hoping that each error case is matched and correctly translated to the intended http response (at least this seems to be a common alternative).
What are some alternatives?
async - Easily run code asynchronously
rescript-compiler - The compiler for ReScript.
variant - Variant types in TypeScript
async - Async utilities for node and the browser
htmx - </> htmx - high power tools for HTML
neverthrow - Type-Safe Errors for JS & TypeScript
posterus - Composable async primitives with cancelation, control over scheduling, and coroutines. Superior replacement for JS Promises.
redux-saga - An alternative side effect model for Redux apps
