    Project mention: Ask HN: What framework/tools to use to build front end in 2023? | | 2023-11-11

    I'm for Vue/Nuxt. While reading React code is fine, I found it easy to shoot myself in the foot (causing circular effects or getting no reactivity) in a way Vue didn't. Vue feels more explicit. I like React's TSX for embedding HTML, but Vue's splitting of model and view appeals to me. I'm torn on that one.

    Vue's ecosystem isn't as big, but it's an established framework. Both React and Vue feel easier to work with than Angular. RxJS is really cool, but also very comprehensive, making it difficult to keep the entire API in mind. At least for me, who only use it casually (used to use it more while at Google.) And on top of that, I have to know the Angular API. Angular used to be great for Material Design, but I nowadays there are MD packages for all systems.

    Nuxt is for Vue what Next is for React: SSR and SSG. It adds auto-imports, which is nice. At this point, I see no reason to use Vue alone, since there's always something that can be pre-rendered. Perhaps the frontpage, or help pages. Since Vue itself provides entrypoints for SSR, Nuxt is more of a file-structure based router that just simplifies things. The documentation is a bit sparse on e.g. the difference between a plugin and a module, and I usually resort to navigating their source to understand things. That might not be everyone's cup of tea.

    If what you're writing is a web app, there is also Quasar, built on top of Vue. Similar to Nuxt in that it ties in directory structure, build system and MVC framework. It is also a Material Design UI widget library. Their selling point is that you can build mobile apps, and web apps with the same library. I.e. like React Native. I felt it strays too far away from the core simplicity of Vue, unlike Nuxt, but it's no doubt a very capable framework.

    Finally, I'm currently using PrimeVue as the UI widget/theming library on top of Vue. It's okay. :\ Switched to it when the Vue Bootstrap project decided to to support Vue 3 (or whatever the situation was.) I haven't come across anything that's actively broken or missing. The companion library PrimeFlex provides layout CSS. Annoyingly, they've decided to close GitHub FRs, and some (far from all) bugs, and just keep track of them internally. Makes it more dificult to communicate, but I don't know their reasoning behind it (they didn't respond when I asked.)

  • stf

    Project mention: Why Android developers no longer need Windows USB drivers | | 2023-12-30

    Hah I did the opposite.

    I set up an OpenSmartphoneTestFarm (openSTF) instance at the office so people working from home could fully control smartphones inside the office to debug wifi issues. Because some countries had lockdowns at different times, so it could be that production users could work in the office but some of our support people couldn't.

    It worked pretty well actually.

    But they dropped support on it and moved to another product (device farmer) which never seems to have materialised at all. I don't know what happened to it but we just kept running openstf until the end of the pandemic. It worked fine anyway.

    It seems like it would solve most of the PWA issues. Although I vaguely recall reading that Apple is not too fond of apps that are basically just wrapped web views.
