    We still wanted to leverage a layout engine that could be performant and easy-to-use. After doing some performance testing with native UIKit, Autolayout, and a few other third-party options, we ended up bringing FlexLayout into the mix, which is a Swift implementation of Facebook’s Yoga layout engine. All RPL components utilize FlexLayout in order to lay out content fast and efficiently. While we’ve enjoyed using it, we’ve found a few touch points to be mindful of. There are some rough edges we’ve found, such as utilizing stack views with subviews that use FlexLayout, that often come at odds with both UIKit and FlexLayout’s layout engines.
  • We're building a browser when it's supposed to be impossible
    13 projects | | 11 Apr 2023
    We have our own test suite (orginally derived from the test suite of Meta's Yoga layout library [0]) which consists of text fixtures that are small HTML snippets [1] and a test harness [2] that turns those into runnable tests, utilising headless chrome both to parse the HTML and to generate the assertions based on the layout that Chrome renders (so we are effectively comparing our implementation against Chrome). We currently have 686 generated tests (covering both Flexbox and CSS Grid).

    We would like to utilise the Web Platform Test suite [3], however these are not in a standard format and many of the tests require JavaScript so we are not currently able to do that.

  • React vs React Native: How Different Are They, Really?
    12 projects | | 19 Dec 2022
    React Native uses the Yoga engine under the hood, which allows you to use CSS properties to layout your React Native UI in a way that translates really well. Layout in Yoga is limited to Flexbox and absolute/relative positioning, however; there is no CSS grid and no display attribute. This keeps things simpler and more performant, but if developers are accustomed to using other layout techniques on the web, they’ll need to adjust to this new limitation.

  • Taffy 0.2 Release: Blazing Fast UI Layout in Rust. Now with `gap`!
    3 projects | /r/rust | 24 Nov 2022
    PR #246 is super interesting to check out: by fixing the caching strategy, we were able to eliminate an exponential time (with respect to tree depth) performance penalty, and get comparable speeds for flat and deeply nested layouts (something I'd never expected to be possible). Preliminary benchmarks shows us significantly faster than yoga, Meta's C++ library for the same thing, especially on deep trees. Not too shabby for a tiny team of volunteers!
  • How To Build a CLI With Node.js and React
    7 projects | | 5 Nov 2022
    You're going to build the CLI using Ink, a React component-based library for building interactive CLIs. It uses Yoga to build Flexbox layouts in the terminal, so most CSS-like props are available in Ink as well. Ink is simply a React renderer for the terminal, so all the React features are supported. No need to learn a new syntax specific to Ink.
  • Show HN: Satori – Convert HTML and CSS to SVG in Milliseconds
    9 projects | | 10 Oct 2022

    I was thinking that this was going to be a crazy amount of layout engine work, but now I look a little closer it appears the layout work is farmed out to yoga [0] (not trying to take away anything from the effort here). So this project is almost a wrapper around running yoga as a renderer and using SVG as a form of backend target?

    I say "appears" because the yoga landing page doesn't do a great job of explaining what it does.
