  • GitHub repo Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Project mention: The Ultimate Guide to TypeScript Monorepos | | 2021-11-26

    There are many ways to develop, deploy and test Node.js lambda functions. In my reference template, I provide an example that uses an Express.js server. That is not necessarily the optimal way to deploy lambdas, chiefly because this results in deploying one lambda function that handles multiple routes. The most ‘serverless’ way to deploy a backend using functions would be to use different functions for different endpoints.

    3) The backend. As you have said you are using Django for that. So you can use Django Rest Framework to create an API that your front end code can pull data from when interacting with the ThreeJS environment. You can also use maybe a headless CMS like prismic or strapi if you don't want to do too much back end work.

    Project mention: How did you get the DualSense controller to work on Linux? | | 2021-10-03

    Okay, did some testing and it's probably just a Chromium bug. I thought it wasn't because jstest-gtk was giving me a similar behaviour. But I downloaded RPCS3 and Dolphin Emulator, and both worked as expected. Guess this Chrome bug will never be fixed

  • GitHub repo hackathon-starter

    A boilerplate for Node.js web applications

    Project mention: Building production-grade web backends? | | 2021-11-28

    A) This is a great starter with auth, and a bunch of api examples. I started my project with this, and it’s been great, but I recently found out that there’s also a TS version by Microsoft of the same starter. I think that it’s opinionated enough for someone new to this ecosystem. (Ps: I think you’re better off switching the templating language from pug to ejs. It’s pretty php-like)

  • GitHub repo SheetJS js-xlsx

    :green_book: SheetJS Community Edition -- Spreadsheet Data Toolkit

    Project mention: Tips for Making a Popular Open-Source Project in 2021 [Ultimate Guide] | | 2021-11-12

    Maybe a story from a maintainer would help. To contextualize, the main SheetJS open source project has over 28K stars.

    tl;dr: the project involves "crowdsourced research" which benefits from popularity.

    The main social goal with the project is data preservation and integrity. Large-scale economic and political decisions are made from data and analyses in spreadsheets. For example, last year in the UK, COVID cases were underreported thanks to Excel minutiae

    Due to various corporate stratagems, the older data representations were intentionally obfuscated. To support Excel, many developers poked around at Excel files and guessed at the structures.

    In this environment, the biggest challenge is finding worksheets with random corner cases. These types of files are not easy to create and fuzzing has limited effectiveness. This is where open source and popularity come into play. The open source and JS nature of the project helps reduce testing friction ( runs in the web browser, no need to install anything) and encourage bug reports with test cases.

    There will always be "entitled users" and "low quality bug reports" but that comes with the territory. There are also meaningful issues and code contributions. Efforts at trying to prevent the low quality contributions also discourage higher quality contributions.

  • GitHub repo date-fns

    ⏳ Modern JavaScript date utility library ⌛️

    Project mention: [AskJS] NPM package for regional date format? | | 2021-11-21
