    Next generation frontend tooling. It's fast!

    I've spent a lot of time building web apps using the old "save a change, restart the server, refresh the browser" loop. And if you have too, I don't have to tell you how hard it is to go back to that once you've seen the light of browser sync/hot reload/etc. One of the fastest build tools out right now is Vite, which is an absolute treat to use and I recommend you try it out if you haven't.

  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

    But something else I (and a lot of other people) have been really excited about is TailwindCSS, which (among other things) offers fantastic developer experience. You rarely, if ever, have to write bespoke CSS, instead using Tailwind's plethora of utility classes to style your elements however you want. Writing frontend with Tailwind really feels like hitting the ground running - there's a lot of friction in writing CSS classes that for the most part is completely taken care of by Tailwind.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
