  • PUT - Updates an existing resource
  • PATCH - Very similar to PUT but makes a partial update on a resource
  • DELETE - Deletes resource or related component

Bltiz.js

What is it?

Developed in 2020, Blitz.js is a "Zero-API" data layer that enables users to import server-side code directly into React components instead of manually adding API endpoints, handling client-side fetching, and handling caching. Out of the box, Blitz includes ESLint, Prettier, Jest, user sign up, log in, and password reset. The creator, Brandon Bayer, appreciated that Ruby-on-Rails has all the tools he needed to create web apps quickly but preferred React's dynamic UI. Instead of just wishing that React came with these tools out of the box, he developed Blitz.js. Read the manifesto to learn more about how Blitz.js works.

Create Your Own Blitz App

You can create a Blitz.js application by running the following commands:

  • blitz new myAppName
  • cd myAppName
  • blitz dev

Here are working examples of Blitz.js in action.

How to Contribute

If Blitz.js has piqued your interest, take a look at the repository and Contributing.md. Currently, the repo has approximately 130 open issues, so get started and pick up an issue today!

Ngrx

What is it?

Ngrx enables developers to add reactive state management to Angular applications. It’s a group of Angular libraries, which provides standardized APIs for reactive programming.Through reactive programming, your application listens and subscribes to events within your application. People often use Ngrx because it reduces complexity and coupling between different elements of the app by creating a unidirectional flow. The architecture is also made simple by following the Redux pattern.

How to Contribute

If Ngrx has piqued your interest, take a look at the repository and Contributing.md. Currently, the repo has approximately 38 open issues, so get started and pick up an issue today!
