  • Todos: The Hard Parts

    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)).

  • Not Your Typical Horizontal Rules
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-07
    This is a great exploration of how to use SVG on the web. It is a very under-utilized technology.

    One thing that would add to this post is to point out that you can define an SVG once in a document and then reference it everywhere else. That way you aren't inlining the actual SVG markup over and over and over.

    1. Place your SVG inline anywhere in the document. I usually put all of them in a `

    ` I do `display: none` on.

    2. Make sure you assigned each SVG an ID: ``

    3. Reference that SVG anywhere in your document using ``

    I use it extensively in a Github project (shameless plug) I've been working on lately. https://github.com/pseudosavant/player.html/blob/master/src/...

    I love the utility of single file web apps, even if this one does use 2 external dependencies.

    I've gotten into this myself. I made a couple of (actually) single file web apps for navigating/viewing videos on a web server, or Markdown on a web server.

  • Ask HN: Has anyone hired a freelance developer for a MVP?
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-01-01
    I have the same question.

    I've tried working with UpWork, but their developers seem more geared towards "known"-type of projects, involving specific tech, or specific type of jobs, or fix it jobs.

    I presented a project of some advanced JS, nothing too serious, and almost every developer declined or couldn't understand the requirements, likely because they didn't read any of my material about the project.

    The job is pretty simple: add support for https://play.Presenta.cc .json files to https://github.com/pseudosavant/player.html#playerhtml. I want to be able to have a Presenta File player, so I can play the Presenta slideshow files and video files from my local folder using the html page. That's generally it. Upwork couldn't deliver.

    This job was step one, in a very few number towards an MVP.

    Nobody on Upwork seems to be able to do this.

    I'm pretty disappointed with UpWork.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing yjs and player.html you can also consider the following projects:

Kanboard - Kanban project management software

pacman-backup - :floppy_disk: Pacman Backup tool for off-the-grid updates via portable USB sticks or (mesh) LAN networks.
