  • redux

    Predictable state container for JavaScript apps

    Project mention: Front-end Guide | dev.to | 2022-11-23

    As Flux is not a framework per se, developers have tried to come up with many implementations of the Flux pattern. Eventually, a clear winner emerged, which was Redux.

    Project mention: Do yout stil use Android Timber lib? | reddit.com/r/androiddev | 2022-07-18

    Do you still use the Android Timber lib? The only real pro I see is that you don't need to declare the Tag, other than that that "pro" where each call checks if debug or not I wonder why you would like to have that, I mean what I want is all debug-only logs to get stripped out from the code, and instead of calling if(BuildConfig.Debug) on each Timer.xy() call why not create an extra Application class under the debug folder where logs are activated? Just trying to figure out of this lib that actually started like 9 years ago is still needed or not really anymore. https://github.com/JakeWharton/timber
