Simple.css, TypeScript Cheat Sheets, and Rust for Web tooling
Sometimes I need to start a quick project, and I need basic styling for elements like buttons and form elements, without anything advanced that large libraries provide. Projects like Simple.css are helpful in these situations.
TypeScript Cheat Sheets
These days I'm learning TypeScript. On the Typescript website, I found these cheat sheets. They are designed nicely and help to fast recall a feature or a concept especially if many of TypeScript concepts are new to you. ex.:
In this article, the author studies the direction of using Rust language at several use cases in the Frontend & JS tooling area. I found it especially useful to make projects like Webpack, ESLint, Prettier, and Babel faster. As I’m using these tools on different projects and it’s obvious when projects get bigger how much it affects everyday development performance.
Also, other exciting projects built with Rust, but I’m not using currently though maybe in the future, like Deno and WebAssembly.
Of course, Rust isn’t the only choice for better performance options for Web tools. Go is also a good choice. Although I see the support from Mozilla and maintainers would go more into the direction of choosing Rust in this area.
