What was your win LAST week?

Hey folks!

Sorry for leaving out the weekly wins thread again last week! 😱

To be clear, this is not a purposeful new pattern, just a mishap.

But hey, it's never too late to celebrate your wins. Let's talk about what you're proud of from LAST week.

All wins count — big or small 🎉

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Planting something new in your garden... or whatever else might spark joy ❤️

I'm looking forward to reading what you accomplished last week 🎉

My big win over the weekend was breaking ground on a piece of property that we've owned for about a year. We plan to build a house there and just took down some of the tress + put in the driveway. It's officially happening!! 🏠

Just found V8 bug 🐛

class Var1 {
  get() { }

class Var2 {
  ["get"]() { }

  var1 = new Var1,
  var2 = new Var2

const as = { group: "v8" }
Deno.bench("var1.get.bind()", as, () => { var1.get.bind() })
Deno.bench("var2.get.bind()", as, () => { var2.get.bind() })
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
benchmark            time (avg)             (min … max)       p75       p99      p995
------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------
var1.get.bind()    6.02 ns/iter    (5.23 ns … 32.95 ns)   6.09 ns  10.24 ns   11.3 ns
var2.get.bind()  671.68 ns/iter (645.99 ns … 757.92 ns) 674.67 ns 757.92 ns 757.92 ns

   111.59x faster than var2.get.bind()

My win the last two weeks is spending time with my wife and son, in preparation for my second son due any day now.
I'm going into negative vacation time, but it's worth it :)

I've been looking for a monolithic CMS written in Node.js, but didn't find anything suitable.

Luckily, I've managed to integrate Express, React and PayloadCMS which supports connecting to a locally running instance of MongoDB - so I've got everything in one place :D

Cherry on top - I use Reacts JSX as a template engine, although I don't want/need interactivity in the browser. So I render components with React.createElement inside Express route handlers and can even stream HTML with res.send(renderToStaticNodeStream(template))

PS renderToStaricNodeStream is imported from "react-dom/server"

I released the first version of Act, a library that enables you to create flat or hierarchical state machines. Have a look/try it out and give me feedback, I appreciate it.

Spent all week making libraries and hacking together pieces of other people's libraries to make development with a broken hand feasible I'll make these libraries available on npm and github when they have been fully tested

hello peter, something similar is happend with me also when i have started to learn react js in 2017 when it very fresh in our community. lot's of code guru recommending it learn, blindly. According to that experience i will say, New technologies comes with few limitations and after understanding that limitation creaters invent solutions or alternative for that limitation.

I know you can also find that solution too, All the best.

I created a new design in Figma for my project. I have added a few new features, which I hope will enrich my project and it will be more interesting and enjoyable.
