  • GitHub repo Angular

    The modern web developer’s platform

    Project mention: A Guide for Building Angular SPA with ASP.NET Core 5 Web API | | 2021-10-20

    A single page application (SPA) is a type of web application that doesn’t load entire new pages from the server in an old and traditional way but instead loads data and contents from the server dynamically. SPA loads all necessary HTML, JavaScript, and CSS with a single page load, and the remaining resources are loaded dynamically usually from a backend Web API, and added to the page on different user actions. This technique results in an improved user experience because the user stays on the same page and control is never transferred to another page. Some popular examples of SPAs are Gmail, Facebook, Google Maps, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. There are many front-end frameworks to build SPAs and the most popular ones are React by Facebook and Angular by Google. Angular is the go-to option for developers who want to develop cross-platform, efficient, and sophisticated single-page apps using HTML, CSS, and TypeScript.

  • GitHub repo Django

    The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

    Project mention: Introspecting Python Parameter Values via Argument Binding | | 2021-10-16

    So when can this actually be used? Well, for our project, we have a Django web application project that implements Celery Asynchronous Tasks. We can schedule these tasks to be run by a background worker, but we require an audit log to determine who started a task and what organization the task is tied back to.

  • GitHub repo webpack

    A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

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

    We dropped from the 11.0mb to 4.67mb without losing any functionality but still something was not right. The module in the screenshot @sovrn/platform-ui-core is the wrapper we use around Material-UI and we could see some components that we were clearly not using. We went back did some reading and found the sideEffects property in package.json that Webpack has adopted for - denoting which files in a project are “pure” and therefore safe to prune if unused. Material-UI uses it but we didn’t so we were not able to tree shake our internal Material-UI wrapper.

  • GitHub repo httpie

    As easy as /aitch-tee-tee-pie/ 🥧 Modern, user-friendly command-line HTTP client for the API era. JSON support, colors, sessions, downloads, plugins & more.

    Project mention: Look at my new plugin to help run long commands | | 2021-10-07

    Because this doesn't need to be sourced every time and, during development, like I am doing right now, it is constantly being changed. Add more, change existing etc. Imagine doing a web dev project and you are constantly creating and editing requests on postman. But you want to use a command line tool instead, such as With this tool, it is easier to create those requests and run them on the command line. I'm willing to discuss this more with you. I believe this can be useful for many people and am having trouble marketing it haha.

  • GitHub repo Ionic Framework

    A powerful cross-platform UI toolkit for building native-quality iOS, Android, and Progressive Web Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

    Project mention: Does nyone else think Django is better off with it's own template rendering than with other frontends like Vue, React etc? | | 2021-10-14

    If you are building something that is trying to be the next Facebook where there are lots of components that are working together to build an “app” like experience then a Vue / React frontend can make life way easier when it comes to keeping track of state. It can also make it easier to start building native apps but mostly if you build this in from the start via something like ionic
