  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • styled-web-components

    Style property primitives for Web components inspired by styled-system

    In addition to the above mentioned libraries, I have also used two of my own npm libraries called styled-web-components and crayons-extensions. Let's have a brief look at them.

  • crayons-extensions

    Extensions for Crayons components

    crayons-extensions is a small collection of layout components built as an extension for Crayons components. It will help you to construct complex UI layouts with simple component primitives like fw-flex, fw-grid, etc.,

  • 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!

  • webpack

    A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

    It is using Webpack for bundling, Redux and Immer for application state management.

  • JSZip

    Create, read and edit .zip files with Javascript

    It uses other utility libraries like Lodash, JSZip and SortableJS. JSZip is used to package the user interface markup into HTML files and other required JavaScript files for a Marketplace App boilerplate in a compressed format and download them from the browser.

  • stencil

    A toolchain for building scalable, enterprise-ready component systems on top of TypeScript and Web Component standards. Stencil components can be distributed natively to React, Angular, Vue, and traditional web developers from a single, framework-agnostic codebase.

    The app is built using vanilla Web Components without using any component publishing libraries like Stencil, Lit and so on. The reason being I met with some roadblocks in building a drag-n-drop editor using these libraries. Actually the Crayons Team itself is using Stencil to build the Crayons components using TypeScript and React-like component semantics and finally publish them as platform native Web components and React wrappers for the same. You can find out more about this in the Stencil documentation.

  • sortablejs

    Reorderable drag-and-drop lists for modern browsers and touch devices. No jQuery or framework required.

    It uses other utility libraries like Lodash, JSZip and SortableJS. JSZip is used to package the user interface markup into HTML files and other required JavaScript files for a Marketplace App boilerplate in a compressed format and download them from the browser.

  • redux

    Predictable state container for JavaScript apps

    It is using Webpack for bundling, Redux and Immer for application state management.

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • React

    A declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces.

    The original idea and inspiration for the Crayons Playground came from the full-featured visual editor and code generator for React using Chakra UI called openchakra. All the underlying architecture, code organization and design & communication patterns are borrowed from openchakra. The only difference is Crayons Playground doesn't make use of any JavaScript framework whereas openchakra is completely built using React.

  • lodash

    A modern JavaScript utility library delivering modularity, performance, & extras.

  • lit

    Lit is a simple library for building fast, lightweight web components.

    The app is built using vanilla Web Components without using any component publishing libraries like Stencil, Lit and so on. The reason being I met with some roadblocks in building a drag-n-drop editor using these libraries.
