Basic macaron shell recipe

  • This will make approximately 100 shells, or about 4 dozen cookies
  • When practicing, I generally half this recipe to only make 1 sheet of cookies
  • When making macarons, you will generally flavor the filling but not the shells
  • You want to make the macarons the day before the event. You will store them in the refrigerator over night, and then take them out a few hours before to come to room temperature. This is because macarons are best when "ripened", or allowed to sit for at least one night and have the filling seep into the shells a bit. Otherwise, straight out of the oven, they can be too crunchy or hard
  • Macarons shells freeze well! Filled macarons can also freeze well depending on the filling. Buttercream fillings freeze great. Put the cookies into an airtight container before freezing
  • Everyones baking temperature and baking time vary depending on their oven - you might have to experiment a bit!

Starving the Event Loop with Microtasks

Starving the Event Loop with microtasks

"What's the Event Loop?"

Sparked from this twitter conversation when talking about doing fast async rendering of declarative UIs in Preact

These examples show how it's possible to starve the main event loop with microtasks (because the microtask queue is emptied at the end of every item in the event loop queue). Note that these are contrived examples, but can be reflective of situations where Promises are incorrectly expected to yield to the event loop "because they're async".

  • setTimeout-only.js is there to form a baseline

What is the JS Event Loop and Call Stack?

Regular Event Loop

This shows the execution order given JavaScript's Call Stack, Event Loop, and any asynchronous APIs provided in the JS execution environment (in this example; Web APIs in a Browser environment)
