  • [AskJS] What is an issue you struggle with your current tech stack?
    5 projects | | 25 Jul 2022
    For your own side project, try rigging something together with pure ESM, I tried it and it was a pretty fun exercise. HTM/Lit for building components. Skypack for bundling modules using a CDN. You can even bundle multiple dependencies on a CDN using ReverseHTTP. Native imports maps are also great, but not fully supported yet.

  • Tilde feat. Web Components
    3 projects | | 24 Jul 2022
    Tilde has been a great place for me to explore core web concepts and build without using frameworks and transpilation tools as a crutch. The last few years I have been so engrossed in React and friends that I totally missed Web Components and a few cool features like private class fields. It takes a bit to switch from the mental model I use when writing React components, but overall I'd be happy to work on a larger project with Web Components—maybe utilizing something like Lit.

  • why webcomponents?
    1 project | | 15 Jul 2022
    I tried (and and it does solve some of the issues that React (rather VDOM) invented, plus Shadow DOM is awesome, slots, styleable parts. But IMO it's a huge investment at the moment, with questionable returns (especially if using them with React), your team(s) will stuck with constant releases of small additions and fixes. In 3 years when you move from React to X, you will wonder if it was worth it.

  • More react components means BIG react js runtime?
    3 projects | | 10 Jul 2022
    I looked into optimizing react as well but it's kinda pointless. Nothing makes react runtime, js for every little thing disappear. React's legacy code, class, mixins, ie support, every little design mistake footgun codes lives on that library (hooks, useEffect, useMemo, rerendering, vdom, js bloated api on top of native api: Concurrent mode=Scheduler api...) so doesn't make much sense. If you look at npm downloads you see lit library alone stats are way up 739k, svelte 351k, solid 30k (there are lots of other libraries for making web component), + a lot of enterprise considering switching from react. + I kinda don't want to work on react codebase where everything is package, dependency, hooks hell, million ways of doing one thing. Also web components easily integrates with with angular, vue, svelte, solid. For react, has a wrapper. uses lit, Photoshop uses lit for its web app, Google, YouTube, Reddit uses web components. I think React's end game is coming, native platform has all the features now. Once this upcoming page transitions lands, it is over I think. This api literally kills mobile apps. Apple allowing push notifications and pwa on ios 16. To make native app like experience, we have to kill the js bloat.

  • Ask HN: What's is your go to toolset for simple front end development?
    46 projects | | 7 Jul 2022
    Typically use open-wc[2] to have a starting template under a minute.

    Then I use any of the front-end libraries that add bells and whistles. Vaadin coming on top [3]

    I'm a backender, I don't have time to, nor want to learn the specificities of a framework. And I don't want my users to have to pay the cost of many dependencies that I'm not using the full power of.

    Add firebase or supabase with netlify for deployment, and I'm done.

    It's not purely drag and drop, but not complex either
