  • GitHub repo nodebestpractices

    :white_check_mark: The Node.js best practices list (September 2021)

    Project mention: A reflection about scalable project architectures | | 2021-09-30

    Regarding structure, check out node best practices, where structuring by component (aka structuring by feature or module) is recommended, so in node.js it's already known that structuring by type not scales well, disregarding of the project size.

  • GitHub repo Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Project mention: Introduction to Nodejs and Express | | 2021-10-17

  • 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).


  • GitHub repo Nest

    A progressive Node.js framework for building efficient, scalable, and enterprise-grade server-side applications on top of TypeScript & JavaScript (ES6, ES7, ES8) 🚀

    Project mention: Why hasn’t a node version of django taken off? | | 2021-10-19

    There are a lot of good choices out there, though! I really like NestJS, which is an opinionated Typescript API-focused framework built on top of Express. I've heard of fans of AdonisJS as well, and Fastify is very Express-like but, well, faster.

  • GitHub repo Strapi

    Project mention: How did you get the DualSense controller to work on Linux? | | 2021-10-03

    Okay, did some testing and it's probably just a Chromium bug. I thought it wasn't because jstest-gtk was giving me a similar behaviour. But I downloaded RPCS3 and Dolphin Emulator, and both worked as expected. Guess this Chrome bug will never be fixed

  • GitHub repo PM2

  • 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: Reddit App | | 2021-10-16

    There's a way to create your own with nativefier. It's an app that lets you create an electron app out of any webpage. I've used it for Twitch in the past and it worked well. Main downside is disk space usage is a bit high due to all the overhead.

  • GitHub repo SheetJS js-xlsx

    :green_book: SheetJS Community Edition -- Spreadsheet Data Toolkit

    Project mention: Is there way to create hierarchical CSV file in JavaScript | | 2021-10-13

    That said, if Excel is your goal, you can create Excel files directly from JavaScript using xlsx.js. There's a lot of information there, but I've used this a lot to create and/or read from Excel files in JavaScript.

  • GitHub repo date-fns

    ⏳ Modern JavaScript date utility library ⌛️

    Project mention: React/Webpack: From MB to KB. How we solved our bundling problem | | 2021-10-20

    Second step was removing the “heavy” libraries, it was easy removing Moment.js, Bluebird. We replaced the first with date-fns and Bluebird with native promises. Lodash unfortunately because of time constraints we could not refactor into moving out from some “handy” utilities it provides but we are planning to.
