    Project mention: The History Of JavaScript ⌛ | | 2021-06-22

    Dart is an object-orientated JavaScript language made by Google. Dart is used to create highly complex and easily scalable apps for the web, mobiles. Dart has been approved by ECMA like vanilla JavaScript. Dart uses a different syntax than vanilla JavaScript but it can be translated into vanilla so it can be used in a browser. Node.js is a cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment that runs on the V8 engine and executes JavaScript code outside a web browser. Node.js lets developers use JavaScript to write command-line tools and for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser. React is a JavaScript front-end library for building user interfaces or UI components. It is maintained by Facebook and a community of individual developers and companies. React is mainly used as a base in the development of single-page or mobile applications. Jquery was made to simplify JavaScript making it easier to learn. It takes a lot of common JavaScript tasks that need lots of code to write in vanilla and wrap them into a single line. The Jquery contains features like DOM traversal and manipulation, event handling, Animation, and even Ajax. Jquery doesn’t need to be compiled and will run in all major browsers.

  • GitHub repo Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Project mention: tinyhttp vs. Express.js: Comparing Node.js frameworks | | 2021-06-23

    Express.js is a flexible Node.js framework that provides a robust set of features for web and mobile applications. Creating robust APIs is very easy because Express.js comes with lots of middleware and other in-built support.

  • GitHub repo Meteor JS

    Meteor, the JavaScript App Platform

    Project mention: What are some good PCs for a software engineering student. | | 2021-06-22

    The requirements listed above are due to applications and frameworks we worked with in class, such as Meteor and Intellij IDEA. The requirement of having a laptop instead of a desktop PC is probably because classes used to be taught in person and that you're going to need a portable computer. I don't know if we really needed that much RAM for that class but you'll probably appreciate choosing it once you get to your upper division courses.

  • GitHub repo 33-js-concepts

    Call all Node.js modules directly from DOM/WebWorker and enable a new way of writing applications with all Web technologies.

    Project mention: Malware in Black Marble programs? | | 2021-05-29

    This program had its underlying web browser treated as a virus. Swapping out the made the problem go away.

  • GitHub repo Ghost

    👻 The #1 headless Node.js CMS for professional publishing

    Project mention: Static Website + headless cms | | 2021-06-20

    This is awesome. I've done a similar thing using Ghost Content API and it worked out great.

  • GitHub repo Strapi

    🚀 Open source Node.js Headless CMS to easily build customisable APIs

    Project mention: First steps in building app with React, Strapi & Apollo GraphQL | | 2021-06-17

  • GitHub repo PM2

    Node.js Production Process Manager with a built-in Load Balancer.

    Project mention: Building a browser extension for PM2 | | 2021-06-13

    Today I'm launching PM2 DevTools, a browser extension that allows you to manage PM2 processes and logs from your browser. This has been a fun side project for me, and while I realize the demographic for a tool like this is likely pretty narrow I'm still excited to show it off.

  • GitHub repo Hexo

    A fast, simple & powerful blog framework, powered by Node.js.

    Project mention: Static site generators to watch in 2021 | | 2021-06-07

    No you're absolutely right -- these are all headless CMSes, I did not actually complete the JAMstack, only the wrong piece -- I don't know what I was thinking, don't know what made me zoom in on CMSes so much, guess I think of them as more important than the front-end in a JAMstack.

    As recompense, some lesser known options for the frontend part of the JAMstack that weren't mentioned in the original post:




  • GitHub repo edex-ui

    A cross-platform, customizable science fiction terminal emulator with advanced monitoring & touchscreen support.

    Project mention: The Expanse UI Design | | 2021-06-09

    Also previously posted, but if you want to TECHNICOOL your workstation a la Hollywood:

  • GitHub repo hackathon-starter

    A boilerplate for Node.js web applications

    Project mention: Rock Solid Express Application Architecture | | 2021-05-06

    One of these boilerplates is sahat/hackathon-starter with 30k+ stars on GitHub and a huge set of features to get you started with. But what I dislike about this boilerplate is the fact that it's too bloated for my needs. I mostly build APIs with Express and this boilerplate comes with a hefty view layer. I surely can cut that off but other parts of the boilerplate are also well suited for full-stack applications rather than REST APIs.

  • GitHub repo date-fns

    ⏳ Modern JavaScript date utility library ⌛️

    Project mention: Working with dates | | 2021-06-24

    Personally I use date-fns, but there's other alternatives in the link above.

    Project mention: Import data to firestore database using excel sheet by python script. | | 2021-06-06

    🌟 JavaScript Style Guide, with linter & automatic code fixer

    Project mention: Ask HN: Do you consider Standard.js a real standard? | | 2021-05-12

  • GitHub repo webtorrent

    ⚡️ Streaming torrent client for the web

    Project mention: Anonymous Self Hosting | | 2021-06-15

    Or use something like webtorrent:

    Project mention: great Bash commands guide for beginners - LeCoupa/awesome-cheatsheets | | 2021-06-15
  • GitHub repo mocha

    ☕️ simple, flexible, fun javascript test framework for node.js & the browser

    Project mention: API Testing Tools in JavaScript | | 2021-06-06

    The library offers a BDD testing style and fully exploits javascript promises - the resulting tests are simple, clear and expressive. Chakram is built on node.js, mocha, chai and request.

  • GitHub repo sharp
