Every Monday we round up the previous week's top posts based on traffic, engagement, and a hint of editorial curation. The typical week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday, but don't worry, we take into account posts that are published later in the week. ❤️

1. CSS Magic

Sarah replicates an image of a physical product in CSS. In this post, they share the steps taken to complete this challenge.

2. Pancake

Rich wanted to create fluid charts without JavaScript. In this post, we learn how they made it happen.

3. Progressive Web Apps

Ibrahima explains the benefits of PWAs, and walks us through how to build one.

4. Cool Tool

Geon shares their new creation: a tool that explains commonly used regular expressions and creates a visual graph for matching and highlighting code.

5. Commit Conventions

Yvonnick explains the importance of writing good commit messages, and shares a framework that works well for them (and their future self).

6. Big Secret

Zak shares their frustration with reliably mocking an API call for Jest tests. In this post, they explain how to mock in three simple steps.

7. Common Scenarios

Jeremy puts together a list of common problems and shares each solution in Python, along with additional resources for learning more.

That's it for our weekly wrap up! Keep an eye on DEV this week for daily content and discussions...and if you miss anything, we'll be sure to recap it next Monday!
