Continuing the topic of orchestrating your containers and cloud development, Kubernetes and companies who use it, we’d like you to meet Knative. This is a Kubernetes-based platform that provides a set of middleware components essential for building modern, source-centric, and container-based applications that can run anywhere: on premises, in the cloud, or even in a third-party data center. So, in a nutshell, you can use Knative to manage modern serverless workloads.
Editing the article by Vadim Tsvid about Ruby on Rails and DataTables plug-in we again encountered our main article-design-problem – the code. Because when you try to make the code visible in your article in a relevant way, you want to take less effort and not editing every single line of it. Especially if you have up to a hundred code lines in a single tutorial! Vadim created great posts, but we know that the code could be presented better: with the color, highlights and so on. We could have been using CodePen for that, but it doesn’t support Ruby… That is why today we decided to write about 19 CodePen modern analogs! That somehow could help us with presenting our frontend and backend code in the future articles. We know that most of them neither support Ruby by now, but we have to find out as many good CodePen alternatives as we can.
Another great event is coming to Ukraine! This time Kharkiv Drupal Community invites you to join the regular event – Drupal Talks #10! On August 31 you’re more than welcome to join this free event by prior registration. On Kharkiv Drupal Talks you’ll learn to be productive working on complicated projects!
Earlier we showed you some main problems you can face using GraphQL and some solutions to deal with them. Meanwhile, StackShare have been experimenting with GraphQL for some new features and encountered a couple of gaps in the Ruby GraphQL implementation… There was no appropriate caching solution! That was the reason to create an open source solution as graphql-cache – the new graphql-ruby gem! So today we’re introducing GraphQL Cache!
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!
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. However, we also have a lot of interesting stuff to share with you. Since the last digest, we collected a bunch of nice Rails GitHub open source projects that will be definitely useful for your work! 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. July, 23’!
As we became fans of functional programming we’d like to share with you any piece of interesting information related to this field. Elixir and Phoenix are absolutely fantastic for building extremely high performance, low maintenance systems, and GraphQL’s ability to fetch huge sets of data in varied ways makes Elixir a particularly great symbiotic fit. Today we will show you an ‘Introduction to GraphQL with Elixir and Phoenix’ created by Brandon Richey.
Some type of knowledge does go outdated. But some data and recipes, ways and tools just going to be improved and reused again and again. How to know whether your knowledge is still valid in new conditions and times? How do you understand when you can apply some old tricks for the new issues? A human brain is a real magic box without capacity limits. And sometimes there’s no need to learn something new. All you have to do is to revise what you already have. Let’s do some knowledge revision with our new Syndicode Digest #63 – Unhide revision.
Our previous JS digest was issued on June 25 but so many great repositories were explored since that time so we can’t keep them anymore. We want you to know about them too! This is the scope of the latest weekly most popular JS repositories. Catch the wave with us and stay tuned about all the newest and the coolest solutions for frontend developers! This new list of JS GitHub repositories will make your work smarter, faster and happier! Here you’ll find open source codebase to learn coding, the most popular JS utility library, storage library that improves offline experience, browser-based code editor, an online diagramming website, port of React Native to the web, self-hosted web IRC client, deep learning visualization toll and many more neat projects… Explore and enjoy!
All of us like when the path is investigated and the lessons are learned. When you have no need to adopt new rules and rely on your own skills. But that is the way you will never learn anything new. That is why every talented developer has to leave the nest of his or her first successful workplace. Not because it’s bad, but because there is the need to move on. Let’s move on with our new ‘Syndicode Digest #62 – Wonderful nidicolous’!
