Svelte 4 Under the Hood

The web framework Svelte is currently undergoing lots of great activity. In December 2022, after a long beta phase, version 1 of the official Svelte meta framework SvelteKit was finally released.

Tauri 2.0: A look at the Rust-based JS framework

Tauri is an open-source Rust-based framework for building native-feeling apps for a wide array of operating systems. Generally speaking, Tauri-based apps leverage the system web view and the IPC bridge between the web view and the Rust host, also known as Tauri Core. Tauri provides a number of interfaces to lower-level systems, like file access, and makes these interfaces available to the user interface in a web view via JS APIs that send and receive messages across the IPC.

Future-proof Module Federation With Browser Technologies

Module federation greatly simplifies the implementation of microfrontends. However, it is — to some extent — linked to webpack. This is not a major issue in the short term, and possibly also in the medium term, because webpack is currently the most popular build tool for web technologies, with over 20 million downloads.

TypeScript 5: New Innovations & Breaking Changes

After an extensive testing phase, the final version of TypeScript 5 implements incompatible changes. However, disregarding the new decorator implementation, these should have manageable effects in practice. In this article, we’ll take a look at what’s new in TypeScript 5 and what’s changed.

JavaScript is known as the Wild West of web development. But despite the absence of law and order, there are a few things that even the wildest developers should stick to. These include consistent structure, documentation, and testing. We will take a look at how that works for API documentation with tsoa for Node.js.

Resumability in JavaScript

Fast could mean a lot of things, but in this article, we are concerned with startup performance. From the moment the user clicks on a link to navigate to a page until the page is ready for interaction. This contrasts with the update performance of how long it takes to update the UI when the user interacts with the page. The startup performance is where we could see the most benefit to user experience.

Server-side Rendering – Back to the Roots?

When it comes to modern web development, there's no avoiding big single page application frameworks like Angular, React, Vue, or even Svelte. The big advantage of this kind of web application is that, ideally, they feel like desktop applications to users. So there are no loading times between individual views. But the biggest disadvantage of these applications is their initial loading time.
