  • Can pass data to the page component as props.
  • In development runs on every request

What to do now that Moment.js is considered a legacy project?

trailingComma: es5 (default)

When set to none...

  • Often forgetting to add a comma when adding entries to an Object.
  • Commenting a property in an object currently removes the comma from the property above it.
  • Moving the last property of an object up requires an extra step to add a comma at the end.
  • Messes up Git diff and sometimes creates conflicts.

CSS Styling Guidelines

CSS Styling Guidelines

  • Use rem units for font-size and line-height.
    • The user preferences are respected.
    • We can change the apparent px value of rem to whatever we'd like.
  • Use px, % or vw for layout purposes.
    • For example, when using margin, padding, width, height, etc.
    • Easier to implement design requirements.
    • Why not rem here as well?
  • Layout can break when changing the base browser font-size.

Style Guides


  • Avoid using any as much as possible.
    • If you want a type meaning "any object", use Record<string, unknown> instead.
  • If you want a type meaning "any value", you probably want unknown instead.

React Folder Structure Ideas

React Folder Structure Ideas

Suggested structure



A really nice tool to manage the different Node.js/npm/yarn versions between projects:

The problems it solves

  • Making sure everyone who works on the project uses the same Node.js/npm/yarn version for consistent dependencies tree and Node.js execution.
  • Switching the Node.js version when jumping between projects.
