Welcome to my Weekly Digest #13 which is the first one for April.
This weekly digest contains a lot of interesting and inspiring articles, videos, tweets, podcasts and designs I consumed during this week.
Animating items out of an array in React can be trickier than you’d think. If you have tried to roll your own solution yet, you have likely been frustrated by the fact that, once your state has been updated with an item removed, it’s gone (and hard to hold on to for the sake of animation!).
Gorillas being about delivering groceries, they recently released a small geolocation widget on the homepage of their website. They’re growing fast, but there are still some areas do not serve, so they wanted to make it easily accessible for people to know whether they could use our services.
Up until 2020, blend modes were a feature I hadn’t used much because I rarely ever had any idea what result they could produce without giving them a try first.
Application State Management is one of the hardest parts of building and maintaining React Applications. The number of options you have is numerous and the reason is that it's just such a hard problem with so many nuances and trade-offs. One thing that makes application state management harder is when we aren't thoughtful about how that state is organized and categorized in our app.
Why so many languages invented words for colors in the same order.
In this video, we look at how to use the official
@tailwindcss/typography plugin to easily add beautiful content styling to markdown, CMS content, or any other HTML where you don't have the ability to add utility classes to each element.
The first three talks from React Conf 2018 by Sophie Alpert, Dan Abramov, and Ryan Florence.

Hayley Hughes is an Experience Designer at Airbnb, working on the Airbnb Design Language System (DLS), in this talk she explains how its not just product UI design that needs our attention, how design systems can help businesses become more efficient, resourceful environments as well as help designers create a better user experience.

exa is a modern replacement for the venerable file-listing command-line program ls that ships with Unix and Linux operating systems, giving it more features and better defaults. It uses colours to distinguish file types and metadata. It knows about symlinks, extended attributes, and Git.

In this episode, we cover typography on the web from your CSS. From font properties to word breaking. Also, Adam gets thrown off and amazed at how dynamic the text underline property is and revels in the difference between small caps and petite caps.
In this episode of Syntax, Scott and Wes talk Matt Holt about Caddy, SSL, web servers, best practices, and more!
Dee, Chris, and Alex talk all about the technology of Elasticsearch. That’s a link to the company itself right there, which is relevant as we use them directly to host our production Elasticsearch.
Thank you for reading, talk to you next week, and stay safe! 👋
