Hi everyone!

We have some nice articles this week. I liked to discover how React-Query is implemented, or the latest Storybook news.

Nextra v2 is a serious challenger for Docusaurus!

A nice React documentary is being created, and the trailer is available πŸ™Œ

It's also quite active on React-Native side! There are some great releases, a State of React-Native survey in the works.

For this edition, I put the images below the title/text, don't hesitate to tell me if it's better like that or if you prefer above?

    FlyCode Makes React Apps Editable without coding, Git based

    FlyCode Makes React Apps Editable without coding, Git based

    FlyCode (YC S22) makes React web apps editable in minutes so Product and UX teams can iterate and release products faster, so they don't have to wait on (or consume) developer time.

    FlyCode reads your regular React code and finds Texts, Images, Design tokens and Analytics event, then it let's non-coders collaborate and edit them and send back a pull request (they don't need access to GitHub!)

    • Saves development time
    • No code integration, it just reads your code!
    • GitHub based, a bot is scanning the code and creates pull requests
    • Use your own stack and components
    • Retain codebase ownership

    You can get started here:

    Nextra 2.0

    Nextra is a tool to facilitate the creation of documentation sites, based on Next.js, and created by a Vercel engineer. v2 has just been released with a great redesign and a nice list of features (MDX 2, Tailwind, search, i18n, a11y, code highlighting...). Relying on Next.js allows to benefit from a modern infrastructure and the latest Next.js innovations, but also to create more dynamic pages (SSR, ISR) associated to static documentation pages. It is a very serious competitor to Docusaurus, the tool I am working on.

    Inside React Query

    Dominik explains how React-Query works, and details the relationships between its different elements: QueryClient, QueryCache, Query, Persister, QueryObserver... Many of these elements do not depend on React, and this is what allows TanStack Query to easily support other frameworks like SolidJS thanks to adapters.

    NextJS, SvelteKit, Remix and the future of Storybook

    Storybook 7.0 will have a new Framework API. It will allow the creation of "Framework packages" (example: @storybook/nextjs) that pre-configure your Storybook for a given stack (builder, renderer, app settings), and that you can extend. The support of several frameworks based on Vite is ready. Next.js and SvelteKit frameworks are coming soon, and a Remix support is considered.
