    Project mention: Introducing Perseus for Rust web development! | | 2021-09-04

    Right now, Perseus needs its server, the architecture doesn't permit purely static operation. That said, something like perseus export will definitely be happening before 1.0.0! In the meantime, maybe try out react-snap?

    Project mention: How do I make a React component library? | | 2021-07-12

    I want to make a component library in React (TypeScript). But I don't know where exactly to begin. I've used CRA (create-react-app) before but that was to build MERN fullstack apps, and not component libraries, hence the confusion. I tried to use NeutrinoJS (as mentioned in the ReactJS docs), but it didn't have official TypeScript support/the ability to write components in TypeScript (instead of JavaScript).

  • GitHub repo create-guten-block

    📦 A zero-configuration #0CJS developer toolkit for building WordPress Gutenberg block plugins.

    Project mention: block editor sucks | | 2021-06-06

    I used to dislike it too, but I started using ACF Gutenberg blocks along with create-guten-block and I find it pretty flexible and useful now.

  • GitHub repo cote

    A Node.js library for building zero-configuration microservices.

    Project mention: [AskJS] What are you using to communicate multiple microservices? | | 2021-04-30

    I am building an API using a microservices architecture, for now I'm using cote for internal communication. It works but it have its quirks (it also seems abandoned or stagnant).

    Project mention: Ask HN: What are some tools / libraries you built yourself? | | 2021-05-16

    njk -

    Annoyed by amount of tooling required to render markdown, nunjucks and front-matter, I wrote this cli and used for all of my static sites. Since then, I’ve mostly migrated my sites to nextjs.
