JSX is a very popular choice nowadays for templating in various frameworks, not just in React (or JSX inspired templates). However, what if you don’t like it, or have a project where you want to avoid using it, or just curious how you can write your React code without it? We prepared some JSX alternatives for you.
Here in Syndicode, we love to set up new traditions! Having many talented developers of the different stack in our team we support knowledge collaboration. Last Friday we gathered in Syndicode’s Kyiv office to listen to an intro to one of the main JS libraries for building user interfaces. Our Friday evening presentation ‘React.js for beginners’ was also streamed online for Dnipro office and other frontends who was away. Would you like for us to make such presentations available for you too?
Things get smarter every day! How can data help in improving the user-perceived page load performance by using predictive analytics? Investigations and monitoring showed that a data-driven approach for predictive pre-fetching of web pages can optimize loading performance on the web and make it possible for the needed page to be already in the user’s cache. Magic? Nope, just a common work of Minko Gechev and Addy Osmani! Today we’d like you to meet Guess.js – libraries and tools for enabling data-driven user-experience on the web!
Working with Babel? Sure, it’s great! But don’t you want to skip these steps of tokenizing the input source code into a token stream and walking the AST to compute the scope information for each variable? If you could work on a lower level and use a custom parser for its use case, you could be much faster! But look what we have found… Sucrase is a super-fast alternative to Babel!
