Let's not forget about jQuery
View jQuery>React.markdown

In this talk I'd like to use 5 minutes of my time to explain to the audience why jQuery is simply way better than React.

  • Does React have a fadeIn() method? Nah, I don't think so. You need to install a react-transition-group package which weighs over 3GB.
  • Can you do $.get( in React? NOPE.
  • Remember React 3.3.1? Me neither, because they didn't make it. Meanwhile in jQuery land:
  • Can you learn jQuery for free? Sure! Can you learn React for free? It'll be $500 USD and your left kidney for a conference ticket.

And many, many more.

(This is a completely serious lightning talk proposal, I promise.)

Make linting great again!

tabs vs spaces

No other topic in software development probably has so much controversy as linting.

With a wrong workflow linting can be really a pain and will slow you and your team down. With a proper setup, though, it can save you hours of manual work reformatting the code and reducing the code-review overhead.

Choosing a CSS in JS library

Choosing a CSS in JS library

Check comments below, this is only my opinion and a choice specific to my use case

We've architected a SPA to be universal-ready. It grew a lot, when we introduced code splitting we realised converting to CSS in JS was unavoidable in order to have pre-rendering and not load all our CSS up front. We've procrastinated on looking at CSS in JS properly, prioritasing immediate business needs, but kept an eye on industry evolutions.

Our CSS solution for components was a CSS companion file per component, imported with style / postCSS loader (with webpack) but no CSS modules: we were missing a tighter coupling between component rendering and styles. We were at the bottom of the CSS and componentization ladder, the following links have influenced us in choosing the right solution for us:

"Parens and Performance" – counterpost

"Parens and Performance" – counterpost

Kyle Simpson (@getify) wrote a very thoughtful post decrying optimize-js, which is a tool I wrote that exploits known optimizations in JavaScript engines to make JS bundles parse faster (especially minified bundles, due to what could be reasonably described as a bug in Uglify).

Kyle lays out a good case, but I tend to disagree with nearly all his points. So here's my rebuttal.
