Latest News

Qwik v1.2 🎉, Builder Devtools, a visual guide to routing in Next.js 13, and some good ol’ CSS.

June 29, 2023

Written By Yoav Ganbar

Conference season has hit my town, and I got a chance to hang out with some awesome people, make new friends, and got tapped in last minute to host the React Next 2023 Kahoot quiz.

Fun times!

Besides that, we have some pretty interesting announcements (if you ask me 😅), some interesting news in the web dev ecosystem, and of course - our dad joke of the day:

The word queue is ironic.



It's just q with a bunch of silent letters waiting in line.

Latest from the Builder Blog

  • Qwik v1.2 is out! 🎉 The north star being to never write a list of performance best practices or 100-tricks-to-make-your-site-fast. 🔺 More DX, 🔻 less best practices.
  • Adam & Yoav (me!) introduce Builder Devtools, another step forward in better developer experience when integrating Builder’s Visual Headless CMS.
  • Vishwas keeps ‘em coming with his visual guide to Routing and SEO Metadata in Next.js 13
  • Yoav (👋🏽) wrote about the good parts of CSS throughout the ages and a glimpse into the future.
  • Vercel is hyped on AI, so they put out their own AI SDK to help build AI apps (I dare you to say AI one more time).
  • Bundlejs is an alternative to Bundlephobia, what I like about it is that it has an API you can ping to add size checking to your workflows
  • Val Town is a tool that is a hybrid of GitHub gists and AWS Lambda. The lowdown is you write code on the browser and it executes on Val Towns servers. No way this can get abused.
  • ~~Skynet~~, I mean OpenAI, just announced ChatGPT functions and some API updates. You can now tell it how to format that “hello world” response.
  • Mr. state management, Dai Shi, put out a new minimalistic React framework that leverages RSCs.
  • Fresh 1.2, the Deno-first, edge-native full stack web framework was released. In it: sharing state between islands, limited npm support, and a new core maintainer.
  • Svelte 4 was released. Not a whole lot announced there, It’s more like the pending for v5 release.
  • DevPod is an open source alternative to GitHub Codespaces.
  • Figma dev mode is an attempt to make developers like design tools.

Once again, a lot is happening, no project nor company are stopping putting out interesting stuff, and keeping tabs on it all is once heck of a job.

I wonder what the next 2 weeks will bring?

Till next time!

Peace. ✌🏽
