While we were preparing this issue we encountered a simple but vital question asked on dev.to. What are the latest trends in frontend development nowadays? Making a scope of the most popular open source projects will help us better understand what is going on in the web development world. This time we’ll do a brief analysis of the monthly most popular JS repositories. Chilling time is the best part of the summer, so to get more time for relaxation – read about, explore and use these great tools. They’ll save your time! For example, a mechanism for programmatically making web requests in the browser, diagrams and flowcharts generator, UI kit, React boilerplate, JS storage to improve the offline experience, text-based browser and many more of interesting and useful repositories!
This winter the new version Bootstrap, one of the world’s most popular frontend component libraries, was announced. Now we’ve got a new free tool based on Bootstrap 4 framework! Material Dashboard is a free Bootstrap 4 Material Design Admin. Let us tell a bit about it!
It seems like almost a month passed from our latest Rails digest. Many great conferences have taken place in June and July – you can watch some videos from GORUCO and Ruby HACK here.

Here you will find project management software, Bootstrap 4 Ruby gem, performance dashboard for Postgres, CMS, optimized JSON gem and more… Meet the new ‘Weekly trending Ruby on Rails repositories.

It seems like in future developers will write less and less code. Modern technologies and automating tools will allow you just to pick the goal and do everything for you. We can’t say is it good or bad, but we can say that sometimes these new solutions can bring you a lot more productivity without extra efforts. Meet Layoutit tool for lazy frontenders!

As far as Syndicode loves Vue.js and has already shared some useful Vue.js plugins before, today we’d like to pull off the curtains for the list of 21 best Vue.js UI libraries. The ability to compose your UI using isolated and modular components is one of the best Vue.js features. Actually, these are not only Vue UI component libraries we want to share but also frameworks for 2018 that will help you to build your application several times faster!
To shed light on the tools that frontend developers are using right now in the industry we made some highlights from Frontend Tooling Survey 2018. The survey was held this March and 5,097 frontend developers took part in it.
