Hi everyone!

This year, I would like to make the newsletter a little more digestible. Do you have any suggestions for me? Do you think I put too many links and some can be deleted? Or do you like the exhaustive side? My goal is to make this newsletter less time consuming to write so that I can offer you more interesting content, like original articles. I'll explain it all to you soon.

If you are into Docusaurus, I was recently invited to the Semaphore podcast to talk about it.

Check out CSS Animation Weekly, a great resource for creative CSS developers looking for cool inspiration.

    Astro - Unlock New Possibilities with Hybrid Rendering

    With Astro 1, you had to make a global choice for the whole site: 100% static (SSG) or 100% server (SSR). With Astro 2.0 it is now possible to choose for each page. The article details the internal workings of the Astro build, and how it had to evolve to support this new feature. They use static analysis to separate static routes from SSR routes.

    Why React isn't dying

    Why React isn't dying

    Dominik explains why React is not about to die. React popularized JSX and the concept of component and declarative UI. The alternatives take the good parts and try to solve the problems, but it will be difficult to challenge it given the size of its ecosystem and its community that only gets stronger with time. It would take a big breakthrough innovation. Framework agnostic libraries (TanStack) have a role to play and allow to transfer knowledge from one ecosystem to another.

    Resumable React: How To Use React Inside Qwik

    Resumable React: How To Use React Inside Qwik

    This article highlights the integration between Qwik and React. Qwik is an innovative framework in beta, based on resumability rather than hydration. It exposes a method qwikify$() that allows to adapt an existing React component to be used in a Qwik app, with several possible hydration modes. To reduce the size of the bundle as much as possible, it is possible to avoid hydrating the React component and to use the native DOM events directly.

      Extensible JavaScript libraries for surveys and forms

      SurveyJS is a set of open-source JavaScript form libraries that you can easily integrate into your web app. It lets you create and run multiple forms, retaining all sensitive data on your servers, or have your own self-hosted WYSIWYG form builder that non-tech users can use directly.

      You can also analyze survey results in custom-built dashboards, save your forms to PDF, or simply convert them to editable PDF files. It offers native support for React and Angular rendering and total freedom of choice as to the backend, because any server + database combination is fully compatible.
