Web Development Reading List #170: Hamburger Alternatives, Libsodium In PHP And Choosing Profit

Web Development Reading List #170: Hamburger Alternatives, Libsodium In PHP And Choosing Profit

As web developers, we need to rely on our knowledge, and choosing solutions we’re already familiar with is often the most convenient approach to solving a problem. However, not only technology is evolving but also our knowledge of how to use it.

For a while, we thought it’s best to use base64 encoding for inlining assets into CSS files, for example, and that loading JavaScript asynchronously will make websites faster. With more evidence and research, however, we came to realize that we were wrong. We should take this as an occasion to remind ourselves to question our habits and from now on ask ourselves if the solution we have in mind for a given problem really is still the best one we could choose.

  • Jack Franklin explains context in ReactJS applications9 — something that’s discussed a lot in the community and often defined in many different ways. Jack explains why it exists, when to make use of it, and how you can avoid using it.
  • In his essay about JavaScript start-up performance, Addy Osmani explains what slows our web apps from booting up10.
  • With all the talk about CSS in JavaScript and markup in JavaScript, we had quite some discussions lately. However, these topics were mostly discussed in the context of React applications. Now there’s a holistic approach to keeping everything in one place for vue.js11: your markup, your logic, your styles. An interesting concept that could be very useful for vue.js web applications.
