This Month in Solid #2: Welcome to ClownTown, Start docs, and more 😎

Hello friends πŸ‘‹
I hope you had a fantastic month! We are back for the second issue of This Month in Solid!
First, thank you so much for the fantastic feedback last month. I'm really happy you found it helpful, and I hope you continue to enjoy it.
This month had a ton of stuff happening, including something a lot of people had been looking forward to πŸ‘€
Before hopping into it, let's review how This Month in Solid works.

The format

Inspired by Ryan Carniato This Week in JavaScript and SΓ©bastien Lorber This Week In React, I plan to publish, at the end of every month, a compilation of updates, posts and videos about the Solid world.

Each post will be split in the following way:

  • Solid Updates: updates from the core team, organization, or documentation.
  • Ecosystem Updates: updates from people building stuff for or with Solid.
  • Found online: videos, posts, and tweets about Solid and/or Solid-related topics.
  • Things to look out for: announced things related to Solid and its community.

The goal is to give you a monthly update about all things SolidJS. So, without further ado, let's dive into our second This Month in Solid.

Solid Updates

SolidStart v0.7.0 - Calm Before the Storm

  • Dropped direct interop with Solid's Request Event and H3
