I just started using a new React component library
apparently they decided that rather than include all the icons as a separate font file, or dynamically loaded SVG, they would encode every single icon as a SVG in a JS string, and concatenate them all together into a single file.
Suggestions for a LIGHTWEIGHT React/Typescript component library?1
While we're on the current week I cane across an interesting article a while back
I just had a weird thought.
Doesn't the splash screen warning for the inbox app going away kind of prove that inbox is superior?
I only have to click "not switch now" once which saves me from clicking through the Gmail sidebar 4 times one for each "category"2
Was googling some preprocessor tricks for C++ and I came across this:
The next time you complain about your node template system remember what 2000 was like.1
Some articles on hackernoon involve setting up multiple fault tolerant databases
Others are about "temporary hacking using just your browser"
This is why I don't trust RSS feeds.3
Trying to encode human readable XML text in a HTML doc.
Sometimes you just give up, wrap the whole thing with a string, and set the value of an disabled input to the string.
I was doing some reading on sound analysis when I came across this article. Look at the comments thread.
Has anyone ever wondered why devrant has yet to get into the dating service business?
Feels like we already have a good community, we should add a category for romance.6
First rant: but I'm so triggered and everyone needs a break from all the EU and PC rants.
incredible async code (await/async)
universal support on almost everything connected to the internet
runs on almost all platforms including natively
dynamically interpreted but also internally compiled (like Perl)
gave birth to JSON (you're welcome ppl who remember that the X in AJAX stood for XML)
All these people ranting about JS don't understand that JS isn't frikin magic. It does what it needs to do well.
If you're using it for compute-heavy machine learning, or to maintain a 100k LOC project without Typescript, then why'd you shoot yourself in the foot?
As a proud JS developer I gotta scroll through all these posts gushing over the other languages. Why does nobody rant about using Python for bitcoin mining or Erlang to create a media player?
Cuz if you use the wrong tool for the right job, it's of course gonna blow up in your face.
For example, there was a post claiming JS developers were "scared" of multithreading and only stick in their comfort zone. Like WTF when NodeJS came out everything was multithreaded. It took some brave developers to step out of the comfort zone to embrace the event loop.
For a web app, things like PHP and Node should only be doing light transforms between the database information and HTML anyways. You get one thread to handle the server because you're keeping other threads open to interface with databases and the filesystem. The Nexus.js dev ranting on all us JS devs and doesn't realize that nobody's actual web server is CPU bound because of writing HTML bodies, thats why we only use 1 thread. We use other worker threads to do the heavy lifting (yes there is a C++ bridge look it up)
Anyways TL;DR plz respect JS developers we're people too. ES7 is magic and please don't shit on ES3 or we'll start shitting on the Python 2-3 conversion (need to maintain an outdated binary just cuz people leave out ()'s in their print statements)
Or at least agree that VB.NET is an abomination and insult to the beauty that is TI-84 BASIC13
A dating simulator game engine for the web. I have created the engine already but I need writers/artist to make a decent demo.4
