This gist had a far larger impact than I imagined it would, and apparently people are still finding it, so a quick update:

  • TC39 is currently moving forward with a slightly different version of TLA, referred to as 'variant B', in which a module with TLA doesn't block sibling execution. This vastly reduces the danger of parallelizable work happening in serial and thereby delaying startup, which was the concern that motivated me to write this gist
  • In the wild, we're seeing (async main(){...}()) as a substitute for TLA. This completely eliminates the blocking problem (yay!) but it's less powerful, and harder to statically analyse (boo). In other words the lack of TLA is causing real problems
  • Therefore, a version of TLA that solves the original issue is a valuable addition to the language, and I'm in full support of the current proposal, which you can read here.

I'll leave the rest of this document unedited, for archaeological

The truth about Svelte
View what-is-svelte.md

I've been deceiving you all. I had you believe that Svelte was a UI framework — unlike React and Vue etc, because it shifts work out of the client and into the compiler, but a framework nonetheless.

But that's not exactly accurate. In my defense, I didn't realise it myself until very recently. But with Svelte 3 around the corner, it's time to come clean about what Svelte really is.

Svelte is a language.

Specifically, Svelte is an attempt to answer a question that many people have asked, and a few have answered: what would it look like if we had a language for describing reactive user interfaces?

A few projects that have answered this question:

Disclaimer

I'm still very new to Kafka, eventsourcing, stream processing, etc. I'm in the middle of building my first production system with this stuff and am writing this at the request of a few folks on Twitter. So if you do have experience, please do me and anyone else reading this a favor by pointing out things I get wrong :)

JavaScript Crypto Libraries

List some crypto libraries for JavaScript out there. Might be a bit out dated. Scroll to the bottom.

WebCryptoAPI

http://www.w3.org/TR/WebCryptoAPI/

This specification describes a JavaScript API for performing basic cryptographic operations in web applications, such as hashing, signature generation and verification, and encryption and decryption. Additionally, it describes an API for applications to generate and/or manage the keying material necessary to perform these operations. Uses for this API range from user or service authentication, document or code signing, and the confidentiality and integrity of communications.

My thoughts on writing tiny reusable modules that each do just one
thing. These notes were adapted from an email I recently sent.
***
If some component is reusable enough to be a module then the
maintenance gains are really worth the overhead of making a new
project with separate tests and docs. Splitting out a reusable
component might take 5 or 10 minutes to set up all the package
overhead but it's much easier to test and document a piece that is
