    But still, frontend development is pretty damn hard! And that makes sense. Web applications can have interfaces as complex as IDEs and data exchange layers as complex as distributed databases.
  • A Simple Way to Build Collaborative Web Apps
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-17
    I haven't yet done this but based on some research it seems to me like the core of any collaborative app today is easiest served by picking some CRDT library.

    There are a couple of open-source CRDT libraries that provide both clients and servers (yjs [0] and automerge [1] are two big ones for JavaScript I'm aware of).

    My basic assumption is that as long as you put all your relevant data into one of these data structures and have the CRDT library hook into a server for storing the data, you're basically done.

    This may be a simplistic view of the problem though. For example I've heard people mention that CRDTs can be space inefficient so you may want/have to do periodic compaction.

    I've used YJS and can strongly recommend. https://github.com/yjs/yjs

    Built a Google Docs like rich text collaborator for a client on Express/Psql and React. Worked like a charm (the hardest part was dealing with ports on AWS tbh).

    That's a really nice tutorial. However, most of collaborative apps mentioned in the beginning operate on documents where merging concurrent edits by different users is more of a problem, and there's a really nice tool for that problem: CRDT (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conflict-free_replicated_data_...) and even ready to use libraries like Yjs (https://docs.yjs.dev).

    Of course, there's a lot of very senior HN users who already know about it. I only mention it because I never explored these tools before, learned about it a couple of months ago for the first time in my life and was really impressed.

    For shared use and remote storage, I'd consider using CRDTs like yjs [1] for instance.

    Should be pretty easy, local-first, and allow synchronous as well as asynchronous collaboration and syncing. Even p2p over LAN, webrtc or whatever (I'm unsure how to do local peer discovery in a web browser, on the desktop you'd simply use link-local multicast/avahi (DNS-SD)).

    I think what's even a better attention mechanism is my late internet strategy.

    I didn't bother to register an internet connection at my workshop, and I only have a mobile "flatrate" with 2G slow there.

    It's amazing how precious your value of time instantly gets, and you have to get innovative for all sorts of tools.

    GitHub Issues? Nope, need to build a caching browser extension [1]

    Google? Nope, need to build a browser extension that blocks the damn consent banners.

    Duckduckgo? Nope, doesn't work via TOR and blocks you as of late.

    The general web? Nope. Browsers are too stupid to cache anything. So I guess I need to build my own web browser as well [2]

    There's just so much noise in web sites these days, it's absurd. JS, ads, web fonts, tracking gifs, banners, gdpr consent banners, cookie banners, analytics...all noise, not signal.

    In case somebody is looking for something that's integrated with GitHub's Issue API (without any third-party service scamming you off for it): I built a GitHub Scrumboard Chromium Extension that is offline-ready and doesn't need any third-party server. [1]

    As I'm often developing on my laptop while being on 2G slow, this extension is offline-ready and automatically synchronizes the issues once visiting the /issues URL of an online repository again.
