  • GitHub repo webpack

    A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

    Project mention: Running React Native everywhere: The Web | | 2021-09-26

    Because React Native for Web is a React website, you can use front-end tools to build and run it. For example, you can build it with Webpack or Rollup instead of Metro bundler.

  • GitHub repo parcel

    📦🚀 Blazing fast, zero configuration web application bundler

    Project mention: I completely ignored the front end development scene for 6 months. It was fine | | 2021-09-03

    Last year, I built a little widget thing in plain JS with Parcel[1]. It took away 100% of the tooling I used to spend a couple hours nailing down just to get started. When I need small JS projects that don't need a framework, etc, I'm likely to use Parcel in the future.

    Project mention: Introducing Partytown 🎉: Run Third-Party Scripts From a Web Worker | | 2021-09-23

    But regardless, they’re still running hundreds of kilobytes (and commonly, even a few megabytes) of Javascript on your user’s main thread! And end-users’ mobile devices have less resources than the machines developers are building the sites on! This can drastically affect Lighthouse scores, Core Web Vitals, search rankings, and even increase bounce rates and reduce user-engagement due to poor user experience.

    Project mention: Is there an automatic form generator for ReactJS ? | | 2021-08-18

    react-jsonschema-form also utilizes JSON Schema format but is not strictly bound to Bootstrap as jsonform looks to be(if I got it right).

  • GitHub repo flexsearch

    Next-Generation full text search library for Browser and Node.js

    Project mention: DynamoDB full text search | | 2021-09-21

    Another option that was often suggested to me was building the search index with a library such as and distribute the index than to the client and handle it one the client. But yeah sounds like a lot of overhead and I haven't tried it.

    Project mention: We are the SpaceX software team, ask us anything! | | 2021-05-15

    Hello SpaceX software team! I'm the author of the open-source JavaScript platform called Total.js Platform, and it would be a pity if our open-source server-side framework or client-side library (with more than 250 UI components) weren't part of the space program. Please look into it: ...

  • GitHub repo gifshot

    JavaScript library that can create animated GIFs from media streams, videos, or images.

  • GitHub repo serialize-javascript

    Serialize JavaScript to a superset of JSON that includes regular expressions and functions.

    Project mention: How to load the correct data on the server-side with React and Redux | | 2021-05-31

    We pass the entire state to the client-side via a script tag in the html document by using the serialize() function in the serialize-javascript package. (This javascript parser allows us to parse more object types like a Date so I would recommend to use that package instead of the JSON.stringify() function.) On the client-side we can now read the window.initialState object and parse it to the Redux store.

  • GitHub repo

    Project mention: Why is the browser mainthread so busy at this point? | | 2021-09-23

    its basically a lot of work on yourself scouring / webpagetest livestreams and just testing / working it out yourself. That's how I improved a lot of my own site speed but as you can see I'm also stucksometime haha :D

  • GitHub repo jeelizFaceFilter

    Javascript/WebGL lightweight face tracking library designed for augmented reality webcam filters. Features : multiple faces detection, rotation, mouth opening. Various integration examples are provided (Three.js, Babylon.js, FaceSwap, Canvas2D, CSS3D...).

    Project mention: Best Web-Based Face Tracking Library? | | 2021-08-17

    I created a demo face filter web app using jeeliz. It has great features however, I found that the tracking performance wasn't perfect. Media pipe seems to require building out custom features manually to achieve the face filter app I need. I'm wondering if building a more custom app with mediapipe would be worth the extra effort over Jeeliz.

  • GitHub repo fluxible

    A pluggable container for universal flux applications.

    Project mention: How to check when context is updated in a component? | | 2020-12-21

  • GitHub repo next-pwa

    Project mention: Does anyone have any experience with making PWAs in Next? | | 2021-04-13

    There's next-offline and next-pwa (and some comparison too). But has anyone here made a PWA with NextJS? Now I am not only referring to service workers/offline functionality, but also icons, adding to homescreen, manifest, and other PWA features. Does anyone have any good examples or guides to refer to?
