Each week I share a few things that I've been reading. Here's six from this week:
This is a nice article for people in early/mid frontend careers, or perhaps non-frontend specialists, explaining the thought and design process behind coding a resilient Hero component with CSS.
It's good to see more microfrontends articles talking about doing the stitching-the-page together work on the server (or edge), rather than earlier articles which relied on things like iframes (!) or lots of client-side requests to fetch data (and therefore lots of loading spinners and layout shift)
This is a very good (but not a quick read) overview of where frontend is at with frameworks and meta-frameworks, how we got there, how Facebook pays away the pain of React's limitations, and what the future of edge/resumability vs hydration/hybrid MPA-to-SPA might look like.
I'm bookmarking this as more of an aspirational one, rather than something I've fully read right now. But it looks like it could be really useful/interesting, and in line with much of what we try to do at @CoopDigital.
EDGE FUNCTIONS FOR EVERYTHING!
A deconstruction of the
visually-hidden or (poorly named)
sr-only CSS classes that we've all used so many times without taking the time to pick apart line-by-line.
