Ultra

Deno + React: No build, no bundle, all streaming

GitHub Workflow Status

Ultra is a web framework that leans hard into your browser's native features. Embrace the future of ES Modules, Import Maps, and Web Streams. All while supporting some of the non-standards that many normal people love for some reason (JSX and TypeScript).

It's driven by the following hot-takes:

  • ESM is non-negotiable in {currentYear}
  • SSR is non-negotiable in {currentYear}
  • Bundling is an anti-pattern in {currentYear}
  • Data can be requested anywhere, and is accessible on the server, always
  • Lazy routing with dynamic imports trumps FS routing
  • Less magic in tooling and frameworks is a good thing
  • Simplify your workflow and tech stack at all costs - life is too short
  • Streams are neat

Warning: The following is built around the alpha version of React 18 Mileage may vary.

Here are some neat demos:

Why

I've been working on removing jQuery dependency from multiple projects including lightGallery lately. Most of the projects use only 15% to 20% or less than 30% of the jquery methods And in most of the cases, I didn't want to support all the edge cases or legacy browsers. The hardest part was finding the jQuery methods in the existing project and writing the alternative vanilla jsΒ methods without making much changes in the codebase. So I wrote this library which automatically finds jquery methods in any particular JavaScript file and generates readable, chainable vanilla js alternatives. This can also be useful if you want to generate your own utilityΒ methods similar to jQuery.

Installation and Usage

You can install replace-jQuery using npm:

npm install -g replace-jquery

Create generative art by using the canvas api and node js

Installation

git clone https://github.com/HashLips/generative-art-node
yarn add all

Usage

Create your different layers as folders in the 'layers' directory, and add all the layer assets in these directories. Optionally, append '_r' and '_sr' to the layer file names to make those layer files rare or super rare respectively.

Example: If you had an ball layer you would create a ball directory, and then a file might be called:

  • red_eye_ball_sr.png
  • red_eye_ball_r.png
  • red_eye_ball.png

Rarity is customizable in src/config.js.

Once you have all your layers, go into src/config.js and update the layersOrder array to be your layer folders name in order of the back layer to the front layer.

Example: If you were creating a portrait design, you might have a background, then a head, a mouth, eyes, eyewear, and then headwear, so your layersOrder would look something like this:
