Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support

  • cz-cli

    The commitizen command line utility. #BlackLivesMatter

    Conventional Commits using Commitizen.

  • husky

    Git hooks made easy 🐶 woof!

    Cool, if you have been following till here this is where it gets the most exciting, you must be wondering it's great that we have set these tools up, but someone can still commit to the repo without running these scripts, this is where git hooks come to our rescue. Git hooks are just scripts that run automatically every time an event occurs in the repository. We will use a tool called husky that makes working with git-hooks easy.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • ts-tooling

    Boilerplate for typescript project configured with eslint, prettier, husky, and commitizen.

    You can see all of this in action on my GitHub repo here

  • ESLint

    Find and fix problems in your JavaScript code.

    Code Linting using ESLint.

  • deno

    A modern runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    Setting up Linters can be tedious and tiring but it brings great results once you adopt it and start using it properly in your team. I personally believe that linters and such tools should come with the language itself and developers shouldn't have to worry about setting one up. This experience is much more improved with deno (A secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript) which ships with a built-in linter and formatter for JavaScript and TypeScript.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 300 unique rules to find JavaScript bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
