Five Frontend Things Friday #22

Here are five things in the Frontend Engineering world, that I found interesting…

  1. The Ultimate Guide to JavaScript Frameworks - From the site, “That’s where this guide comes in. It’s a living document that is a reference for all known front end JavaScript frameworks (archived or deprecated projects are not included). In this case, the term “frameworks” is being used in a broad sense. It includes user interface (UI) libraries like React, as well as full frameworks like Angular.”
  2. Using Prettier to format your JavaScript code - From Saransh Kataria on his blog Wisdom Geek, “Wasting time formatting your code is a monotonous task and Prettier has been designed to solve this problem of wasting time on it. So it helps you overcome formatting fatigue with a very easy setup.”. I personally love Prettier. I don’t care how my code looks, I care how it works. Prettier just formats your code for you with integration with your favorite IDE on save. So good.
  3. Frontend Case Studies - On Andrew Romanov’s GitHub, he puts together a great collection of Frontend Case Studies in the real world. Must read.
  4. Hierarchy of documentation dysfunction - While not Frontend specific, Chris Allen on his publication Lore, he goes into the reason you should document your code, at many levels. I for one, believe we should all take a moment and read this. Too often is the case when I look at new projects, there is absolutely no documentation - unacceptable.
  5. How to Write CSS That Works in Every Browser, Even the Old Ones - Jen Simmons, again on the Mozilla Hacks blog dropping knowledge about CSS. Love it.

Keep Rising,
