This Week In React #154: Server Components, Remix, Next.js, ElementRef, SVG Sprites, NextUI, Storybook, Hermes...

Hi everyone!

Once again this week, we've got some great React articles, especially on Server Components!

Last week, I asked whether you preferred direct links or links to Twitter. Your answer was unanimous: direct links. On top of that, the Twitter/X experience has been degraded for anonymous users who can no longer see the discussions. So I'll try to avoid Twitter links, with a few exceptions for which I'll use the 🐦 emoji.
