    Project mention: Why is it so much easier for people/clients to update their socials as opposed to their website? What’s the solution? | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2023-01-01

    Not the most elegant solution, but maybe we could use something like cheerio to scrape each social media page periodically? You could host the service on Render or DigitalOcean with a small database that stores the correct values and the last time they were checked, and then serves them on one API for all your clients.

  • xstate

    State machines and statecharts for the modern web.

    Project mention: A cure for React useState hell? | dev.to | 2023-01-12

    But I want to impress upon you that this is just only one of many patterns you can use this hook for. While this is subjective, I am personally not a huge fan of Redux and this type of pattern. It has its merits, but I think once you want to start layering in new patterns for actions, Mobx, Zustand, or XState are preferable in my personal opinion.

  • NativeScript

    ⚡ Empowering JavaScript with native platform APIs. ✨ Best of all worlds (TypeScript, Swift, Objective C, Kotlin, Java). Use what you love ❤️ Angular, Capacitor, Ionic, React, Svelte, Vue and you name it compatible.

    Project mention: The right way to build multi platform apps in 2023 using web tech. ? | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2023-01-31

    There are layers that offer access to native APIs like capacitor, cordova and nativescript. Apparently sometimes multiple of them should be used, but I didn't understand what are the differences even after reading the announcement. These seem to be frontend agnostic technologies and Capacitor is apparently the more modern choice at the moment.
