    Minimal and efficient cross-platform file watching library

    Back when Orthodox File Managers were created, that was the whole list. Nowadays all operating systems have some sort of functionality of letting apps "watch" filesystem for changes, so it would just need to register that it's interested in some files or directories, and then it would receive a callback when that happens. Every operating system does it differently, and there are many gotchas and performance considerations, but a library like chokidar handles most of such issues already.

  • Svelte

    Cybernetically enhanced web apps

    Documentation doesn't state this anywhere at all (and I asked them to update the docs at least), but x = x does not work for primitive values. Svelte checks if variable got changed to the same value, and in such case it doesn't trigger an update. There also doesn't seem to be any trick to force it to.

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.
