All you need to know to move from CommonJS to ECMAScript Modules in Node.js

One of the most revolutionary features introduced as part of ECMAScript 2015 specification is modules (ESM). In April 2020, Node v14.0.0 landed without experimental modules warning. Even though it was still experimental, it felt like the right timing to adopt ESM for some toy projects and insignificant clients' work. Eventually, Node v15.3.0 arrived and marked modules implementation as stable.

Build a 3D World in React with ThreeJS and React Three Fiber

This video starts with me talking about the difference between React and ReactDOM. React Three Fiber uses React to keep track of 3D objects that gets rendered in a webGL canvas via three.js . The result is the ability to code 3D environments the same way you are used to code a React Web Application. We can even add physics and animation to the 3D objects in the world. In this example we place a Box on a Plane inside a Skybox of stars.

git-quick-stats is a simple and efficient way to access various statistics in a git repository.

Any git repository may contain tons of information about commits, contributors, and files. Extracting this information is not always trivial, mostly because there are a gadzillion options to a gadzillion git commands – I don’t think there is a single person alive who knows them all. Probably not even Linus Torvalds himself :).
