Sending UIs over APIs, use more gap than margin + Miško’s conference tour continues

August 10, 2023

Written By Yoav Ganbar

Hey folks,

How’s it going?

So, apparently, there’s some sort of an attempt to bring RxJS into your browser. Well, not really, but there’s a proposal to bring in an Observable API to your HTML elements. This would offer a syntax that would look something like:

// Filtering and mapping:
  .filter(e =>'.foo'))
  .map(e => ({x: e.clientX, y: e.clientY }))
  .subscribe({next: handleClickAtPoint});

Bear in mind that this is just a proposal, but interesting nonetheless.

Vercel keeps scooping up incredible talent. This time, they added ShadCN to their roster, creator of ShadCN/UI.

Not sure how many of you work remotely and use WeWork, but you might not have an office there even if you do, as they might declare bankruptcy. I’ve been using WeWork sporadically, but guess I’ll have to keep working in my living room during summertime with my kid playing his Switch behind my back 🤷🏽.

Miško gave three really interesting talks on his conference tour:

This time around, as Miško is still running around the world and since I haven’t heard a dad joke from him in a while, I turned to Threads and found this:

We all know about Murphy’s Law – Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. But have you heard of Cole’s Law?




It’s thinly sliced cabbage.

  • OpenStatus is an open-source alternative to your current monitoring service with a beautiful status page.
  • Yusuke Wada, the creator of Hono.js, wrote about his new stack of choice — the dev hipster trifecta — Hono.js + htmx + CloudFlare.
  • Node.js Toolbox is a collection of libraries in the ecosystem broken down into categories. It aims to surface the most maintained and popular libs.
  • Lucia is a TypeScript authentication library that simplifies the process of managing users and sessions. It integrates with your database to provide a user-friendly, comprehensible, and adaptable API.
  • Speaking of auth, Auth.js released support for DrizzleORM.
  • Meilisearch is an open-source search engine that claims to be “blazingly fast”. Don’t know about you, but they had me at “blazingly fast”, The Primeagen would be proud.
  • NextUI v2.0 is out (FYI it is not tied to Next.js). In the release post, they talk about why they transitioned to Tailwind, their new TW plugin, React Server Component support, and more.
  • Supabase now supports Hugging Face via Python and JavaScript.
  • Preevy is a CLI that helps you deploy preview environments to the cloud a la Vercel or Netlify. You have to use Docker-Compose, and it supports only a few platforms, but hey, OSS FTW.
  • EspressoTS is a new TypeScript-based Node.js framework.
  • MetaGPT is an AI agent that’ll spin up multiple agents given a requirement and map out your product. Disclaimer: This is not by Meta the company.

At the risk of being repetitive, once again I am left with more links/posts that I found interesting and I’d like to share with you.

For example, Malte Ubl, CTO at Vercel, had an interesting thought piece about defining the difference between frontend and backend. Not sure I completely agree with the way he framed it, but goes to show how we see things differently.

Another opinion piece that resonated with me was Things you forgot (or never knew) because of React by Josh Collinsworth. He dove deep into the weeds of frontend land in a very eloquent, thorough, and thoughtful post. Worth your time if you’re working with React for sure.

Anyway, that’s it for this time.

For the next one, I’ll be on vacation, so my good buddy and colleague Vishwas will be filling the gap.

Hope you’ve enjoyed it and have a fabulous weekend!

Peace out ✌🏽,
