  • GitHub repo 30-seconds-of-code

    Short JavaScript code snippets for all your development needs

    Project mention: This is my first blog! | | 2021-09-09

    Hello everyone, my name is Thanh Cong Van, my friends usually call me Steven as my Vietnamese name is hard to pronounce. I am living in Toronto, due to the pandemic, I believe that some of my peers are living in different place right now. I am currently taking Computer Programming and Analysis at Seneca, all I want from my program is to have good skills on front-end development. People tend to love full stack development, however, I just want to focus on front-end since I found that is the one interested me the most. The reason why I pick OSD600 in this semester is because I have never worked on real big projects, and also I have never worked with a bunch of people. By taking this course, I strongly believe that I could improve my technical skills as well as communication skills. Personally, I really want to contribute to work on influential brands' online store such as Nike, Adidas because they will need lots of improvement for their web designs. I did a couple of researches about trending repo of this week, and the one that interested me the most is 30-seconds-of-code. It is basically about short Javascript code snippets for development needs. By using this, we do not need to think about writing a bunch of lines to create just only one function. This will make things become way easier than it used to be.

  • GitHub repo Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Project mention: TIL: How to set security headers for Gatsby Develop | | 2021-09-25

    There might come a time that you want to run your Gatsby app with security headers in development. To do this, you can utilize advanced proxying. Gatsby has a way to expose the Express.js development server it uses to run the app whenever you use gatsby develop. This way you can add Express middleware.

  • GitHub repo 33-js-concepts

    📜 33 JavaScript concepts every developer should know.

    What I think is you can do well in React if you understand JS concepts well. I am no expert but I have been studying JS concepts from here:

  • GitHub repo Meteor JS

    Meteor, the JavaScript App Platform

    Project mention: Reactive Clojure: You don't need a web framework, you need a web language | | 2021-09-23

    This reminds me of Meteor.js[0] from back in the day (2014?), which had a very similar approach—you wrote code that ran on both the frontend and the backend, and database updates were propagated automatically. It suffered from a pretty hard reliance on Mongodb and its own package manager (Atmosphere), and it was at odds with the rest of the JS ecosystem which was settling on NPM.

    This project looks very cool! I like the focus on composition, Meteor was lacking that (and really, most other frameworks do as well).

    Project mention: Ask HN: What's your favorite framework for making apps (with GUIs) for yourself? | | 2021-09-22

    Even EloctronJS is more popular, I am using [NWJS]( because it is simple and support hiding code (compile code). However, I recently found a solution to hide code in the Electron app ([Bytenote](

  • GitHub repo Ghost

    Project mention: git-ghosting | | 2021-09-13
  • GitHub repo PM2

    Node.js Production Process Manager with a built-in Load Balancer.

    Project mention: Best Practices for Logging in Node.js | | 2021-09-08

  • GitHub repo Hexo

    A fast, simple & powerful blog framework, powered by Node.js.

    Project mention: Best self hosted micro blog? | | 2021-09-21

    What's good about Hugo is really fast build times, previously I used both and but while vuepress is nice to start with it's nearly impossible to finish the website due to lack of features. Hexo is also nice but their templating language is not always intuitive (my hexo based website:

  • GitHub repo hackathon-starter

    A boilerplate for Node.js web applications

    Project mention: Rock Solid Express Application Architecture | | 2021-05-06

    One of these boilerplates is sahat/hackathon-starter with 30k+ stars on GitHub and a huge set of features to get you started with. But what I dislike about this boilerplate is the fact that it's too bloated for my needs. I mostly build APIs with Express and this boilerplate comes with a hefty view layer. I surely can cut that off but other parts of the boilerplate are also well suited for full-stack applications rather than REST APIs.

  • GitHub repo nativefier

    Make any web page a desktop application

    Project mention: I made these mockups for app folders in the dock. | | 2021-09-05

    I am using nativefier. It just wraps the web app and turns ito into an Electron app. Then I create a custom *.desktop file so it appears in Slingshot.
