    Project mention: Add Cypress, Playwright, and Storybook to Nx Expo Apps | dev.to | 2024-02-19

    Expo has first-class support for building full-stack websites with React, so I can leverage that to add Cypress/Playwright for E2E testing and add the Storybook for UI components.

  • Semantic UI

    Project mention: Should you split that file? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-01

    1. The author links to this file as an example: https://github.com/Semantic-Org/Semantic-UI/blob/49b9cbf47c1... . How would you structure it better than it currently is without using sections?

    2. So you have a class that has a bunch of getters and setters. Let's just assume that "generate them automatically" is not an option. You want to make it really easy to see the part of the class which is getters, and the part of the class which is setters, and then skim past that. How do you do it?

    3. So you have a file that defines 3 data structures. Each data structure has a definition, a bunch of functions for parsing it, and a bunch of functions for serializing it. The author suggests that you split the file into 3 sections for the types, with subsections each for the definition, parsing, and serializing. How would you do it? Let's say the language is Rust or Typescript.

  • shadcn/ui

    Beautifully designed components that you can copy and paste into your apps. Accessible. Customizable. Open Source.

    Project mention: kbar-svelte-mini - ctrl+k menu for your Svelte website | dev.to | 2024-02-13

    Recently I was working on a project, and I want to have the super nice ctrl+k or cmd+k (for mac users) navigation/menu on the website, but there is a problem, similar to why most use shadcn-ui, I also want something that is gives great result with less effort.

    👉 https://vuetifyjs.com

  • sortablejs

    Reorderable drag-and-drop lists for modern browsers and touch devices. No jQuery or framework required.

    Project mention: Multi-column drag and drop with SortableJS and Stimulus | dev.to | 2024-02-18

    Well, it worked. But only for one case: dragging stuff within only one column. You see, stimulus-sortable uses SortableJS under the hood, which is powerful.

  • Portainer

    Making Docker and Kubernetes management easy.

    Project mention: Setup Portainer for Server App | dev.to | 2024-01-23

    Build and share delightful machine learning apps, all in Python. 🌟 Star to support our work!

    Project mention: Show HN: Dropbase – Build internal web apps with just Python | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-05

    There's also that library all the AI models started using that gives you a public URL to share. After researching it: https://www.gradio.app/ is the link.

    It's used specifically for making simple UIs for machine learning apps. But I guess technically you could use it for anything.

  • Editor.js

    A block-style editor with clean JSON output

    Project mention: Show HN: I made an app that consolidated 18 apps (doc, sheet, form, site, chat) | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-07

    I tried the "Doc", "Sheet" and "Slide" feature and each of them are incomplete and lacks most of the popular features. It would be better if the author uses existing solutions instead of implement them from ground up.

    editor.js [0] for documents and Grist [1] for spreadsheet are some good examples.

  • Hero

    Elegant transition library for iOS & tvOS

    Project mention: Created this app using Swift and a bit of Objective-C | /r/iOSProgramming | 2023-04-30

    I started out with the Hero library (https://github.com/HeroTransitions/Hero) but soon replaced it with custom made animation. However, you may want to look into this library as is has a lot of nice transitions ready to use for most cases.

  • @blueprintjs/core
