Let’s get started!
Three years ago, Tom Preston-Werner, one of the masterminds behind GitHub, came up with the idea to create a new web app framework. And after a short time, web developers had a chance to play around with RedwoodJS v0.1. It is a full-stack serverless framework
designed to help start-up businesses in developing apps with less time and resource input. Powered by React, GraphQL, and other popular technologies, this framework already helped many new projects to raise over $19M.
This month, this promising framework has been finally updated to version 1.0. This big release makes RedwoodJS fully suitable for production use. It seems that much more is to come since Mr. Preston-Werner plans to pledge a million dollars for further development of the framework during the next year. Get more details about this announcement and become familiar with further details on the framework update by visiting the RedwoodJS community page.
While Prettier is considered by many as a top tool in the field, the Rome formatter was made with Prettier’s styling decisions in mind. It is planned to make the new formatter fully compatible with Prettier in the future.
When talking about the main distinctive features of this new product, I have to point out the ability to work freely with the code containing syntax errors. Currently, it has the status of an opt-in feature and it is going to be available by default in future releases. One more thing that helps the Rome formatter to stand out from the rest of the tools like Prettier is its high performance. It is also said that we can expect new products to be added to the Rome toolchain in the near future. But for now, check out this release article to get acquainted with the new formatter in more detail.
This major update includes a range of new features and improvements that will help developers to reach their goals more effectively. For instance, this release includes two interesting experimental features - fetch API and test runner. The first feature will help to retrieve data via network requests, while the second one provides a clear way for running tests without any extra dependencies. From now on, programmers can also take advantage of improved support for ECMAScript modules, V8 engine updated to v10.1, and other goodies.
Right now, Node.js 18 has the status of current release but in October 2022 it will be promoted to long-term support until April 2025. Learn more about this major update in the release article.
If you face the task of building a React Gantt chart application for effective project management, you will certainly need some tools that will help you to implement the necessary functionalities much faster.
Nowadays, data analysis has become a key ingredient for data-driven decision-making. That is why modern business applications frequently include tools intended for managing and visualizing large amounts of data. Implementing various instruments for data analysis from scratch can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive process.
As a rule, developers are much more excited about writing new code than testing it and keeping dependencies up to date. They certainly know that ensuring the security of their code is the right thing to do but at the same time, it may also increase the development time. Fortunately, GitHub provides a range of useful tools and features aimed to help developers to deliver high-quality code without any significant time lags. This article provides a description of five security hacks available on GitHub.
