UI development

  • Buck, a high-performance build tool from Facebook. As stated on the site:

    Buck is a build system developed and used by Facebook. It encourages the creation of small, reusable modules consisting of code and resources, and supports a variety of languages on many platforms.

  • Beau Carnes’ JavaScript course is what I’m watching these days to refresh and organise my JavaScript knowledge. Short and sweet episodes tackling everything all the way from the basics to new es6 shiny stuff. Well done.

  • React Conf 2017, entire archive of this year’s React Conf presentations to browse through.

  • When it comes to CSS grid layout, Griddy is a live display: grid simulator to play with, seems like a great way of learning how the whole thing works.

  • React Bits, a compilation of React patterns, techniques, tips and tricks.

  • Reactour, a free intro.js alternative, specifically Reactish, whatever that means. Looking good though.

  • Tippy, the bestest custom js tooltip plugin I’ve seen in a while. Loads of options and decent browser support. Sa-weet!

  • So template tech agnosticism is a thing. And Snook recommends Mustache, logic-less templating system. I’m intrigued.


  • Digging this intelligent doodling app by Google: AutoDraw.

Things Web

Technology stuff

  • Developer Roadmap 2017 neatly laid my front-end dev path and helped crystalising the next thing for me. Now I only need to grasp Redux, then maybe a lil’ graphql and I’m sorted .)

Real world’s things

  • foundation behind Sovereign.App, an “open source and decentralized democratic governance protocol for any kind of organization”. Sounds big. Sounds also like the kind of thing I’d love to contribute to somehow, gotta do more digging.
