JavaScript Weekly

Astro 2.0: The Next-Gen 'Islands'-Oriented Web Framework - 2.0 includes hybrid rendering (mixing of SSR and SSG outputs), type safety for Markdown & MDX, and an upgrade to Vite 4.0. Astro is worth exploring when performance is key as it works with popular frameworks but lets you deliver the least JS possible to get pages rendered.

Why document.write() is bad

#​622 - January 20, 2023

Read on the Web

JavaScript Weekly

Why Not document.write()? - Many moons ago, document.write was a mainstay of client-side JavaScript code, but it's long been considered a bad practice - why? Harry digs in, noting that it "guarantees both a blocking fetch and a blocking execution, which holds up the parser for far longer than necessary".

New: The WebAssembly JavaScript Promise Integration API - A technical explanation from the V8 team on a new API to let WebAssembly apps bridge the synchronous / asynchronous gap of expectations around external functionality (consider that many apps are written synchronously, but modern Web APIs are usually asynchronous).

πŸ“’ Top Articles & Tutorials of 2022

As determined by their popularity in JavaScript Weekly.

1. Douglas Crockford: "The best thing we can do today to JavaScript is to retire it." - The most popular link of the year was to an interview with the author of JavaScript: The Good Parts (and discoverer-of-sorts of JSON) where he explained the benefits of code reading, why we need better languages, and how he won't "write about JavaScript again."

Evrone

2. Ecma International Approved ECMAScript 2022 - The second most popular item of the year was a bit more positive, with Ecma making ECMAScript 2022 a standard. Dr. Axel brought us up to speed with what this meant at a practical level. You'll already be using some of these features - this move just tied up the formalities.

Dr. Axel Rauschmayer

β–Ά Whiskey Web and Whatnot: Your New Favorite JavaScript Podcast - A fireside chat with your favorite devs. Guests include Wes Bos, Charlie Gerard, Chris Coyier, and Kelly Vaughn.

Whiskey Web and Whatnot sponsorpodcast

3. JS Function Composition: What's The Big Deal? - James' articles on JavaScript fundamentals are always popular and last year we got a fresh one focusing on a common activity: function composition. "What's the big deal?" he asks.

James Sinclair

4. AbortController is Your Friend - AbortController provides a way to abort web requests at any point without waiting for a response but it's possible to twist it into other use cases, as we saw here.

Sam Thorogood

5. Ten Common JavaScript Issues Developers Face - A good old-fashioned list. If you've been working with JavaScript for many years, these are potholes you (probably) know to avoid but there's enough to chew on here otherwise.

Ryan J. Peterson

6. A Pipe Operator for JS: Introduction and Use Cases - Many developers feel a pipe operator is missing from JavaScript. Luckily there's a pipeline operator proposal at stage 2 in TC39. Dr. Axel explains why you'd want this and how it could work.

Dr. Axel Rauschmayer

7. Patterns.dev: Modern Web App Design Patterns - A free book you can download in PDF format or enjoy on the Web. Learn about lots of fundamentals, from how different styles of rendering or importing resources work to performance optimizations and case studies.

Lydia Hallie, Addy Osmani, and Others

8. Decorators for ES6 Proposal Reached Stage 3 at TC39 - It's a few years in the making, but a decorators proposal conditionally made it to stage 3 and people were very excited. Fingers crossed we see more from this in 2023.

Ecma TC39

πŸ›  Top Code & Tools of 2022

As determined by their popularity in JavaScript Weekly.

1. Rome Formatter: Super Fast JavaScript Formatting - I liked the image for this enough to want to include it again ;-) As of 2023, Rome (now at version 11) remains an ambitious project that sets out to replace a lot of JS tools in one hit with the initial focus being on Prettier-esque code formatting, as well as linting. Compiling, bundling, and testing features are scheduled to appear throughout 2023.

Rome Team

2. TypeScript 4.6 Released - Not a lot to say here, as TypeScript is always popular, and it's now up to version 4.9, but with v4.6 it took a step forward by being able to detect more syntax errors in plain old JavaScript, a benefit for all JavaScript-developing VS Code users, at least.

Daniel Rosenwasser

Dynaboard: The Pro-Code Web App Builder Made for Developers - Build high performance public and private web apps in a collaborative - code forward - WYSIWYG environment.

Dynaboard sponsor

3. Vite 4.0 Released - This was only a month ago, too. From the same creator as Vue.js, Vite is an exciting piece of frontend tooling offering lots of goodies out of the box. We look forward to more Vite news in 2023.

Evan You and Vite Contributors

4. Lexical: An Extensible Text Editor Library - Out of Meta came a new text editor framework putting accessibility, performance, and reliability at its heart. At only 22KB gzipped and with React 18+ support (but vanilla is also OK), it reminded us of Draft.js but they say it's the "next generation" and Meta is already replacing Draft.js with Lexical in their internal apps.

Meta / Facebook

5. Bun: A (Still) Interesting New JavaScript Runtime - Bun appeared in summer 2022 as a new JavaScript runtime built not around V8 (like Node.js or Deno are) but WebKit/Apple's JavaScriptCore. It includes its own bundler, transpiler, task runner, and npm client, but most significantly boasts huge performance improvements over existing options and supported a lot of Node and Web APIs out of the box.

Jarred Sumner

6. JSON Crack: Visualize JSON Data in Graph Form - Got JSON, want to view it? This is a neat tool for working with and displaying JSON data structures. You can play with it online, embed the graphs into your site, or download them for further use.

Aykut Saraç

7. Shader Park: Create Interactive 2D and 3D Shaders with JavaScript - An open source Web-based platform, community, and library for simplifying the mystifying world of shaders and GPUs by letting you create them procedurally with JavaScript. Note: This site is heavy on the browser given its use of WebGL, so may not be suitable for every device.

Blankensmith and Whidden

8. Axios 1.0: The Popular HTTP Client Library/API - With 98k GitHub stars and a presence in numerous thousands of package.json files, Axios remains very popular and it's amazing it only hit 1.0 in 2022. The Fetch API has taken much of Axios' thunder but, like jQuery, Axios still wraps up a lot of functionality into a broadly liked API. (Official homepage.)

In an effort to be more privacy conscious I've been looking to transition to having Domain Privacy enabled on all the domains that I own. As it turns out many domain registrars, including my current one, charge an additional fee for this service. In an effort to save some money I did a price comparison […]

Write Code Every Day

Last fall, work on my coding side projects came to a head: I wasn't making adequate progress and I couldn't find a way to get more done without sacrificing my ability to do effective work at Khan Academy. There were a few major problems with how I was working on my side projects. I was […]

Use Project-based Interviews Instead of β€œGitHub”

First, some background: I highly recommend that you read the following two blog posts: by Ashe Dryden: The Ethics of Unpaid Labor and the OSS Community and by James Coglan: Why Github is not your CV. They make some fantastic points and communicate the issues surrounding "Using Github as your CV". Both of these were […]

Node.js Stream Playground

This summer I had the opportunity to attend NodeConf and it was a fantastic experience. I really appreciated how every session was a hands-on coding session: I felt like I walked away knowing how to put a bunch of advice directly into practice. One of my favorite sessions was the one run by James Halliday […]

Gittip at Khan Academy

For a while now I've been a huge fan of Gittip. I think they've created one of the most interesting models for funding Open Source development. One of the missing pieces, for most Open Source developers, is having consistent, reliable, income backing your development. Some developers are sponsored by their work place, others have a […]

Asm.js: The JavaScript Compile Target

Like many developers I've been excited by the promise of Asm.js. Reading the recent news that Asm.js is now in Firefox nightly is what got my interest going. There's also been a massive surge in interest after Mozilla and Epic announced (mirror) that they had ported Unreal Engine 3 to Asm.js - and that it […]

WebKit is the jQuery of Browser Engines

The news has just come out that Opera is switching all of their browsers (both mobile and desktop) to use WebKit (specifically, Chromium). I've seen a lot of gnashing of teeth on Twitter and I feel like I can respond because I use to feel the same way back in 2008-2009. However this is 2013 […]

Fixing Google Analytics for Ghostery

As an avid user of Ghostery, which blocks all sorts of tracking scripts, pixels, and other web bugs I frequently run across a surprising issue: The case in which the Google Analytics ga.js script has been blocked from loading (which is intended) but then some critical piece of functionality on the site is broken. The […]

Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja Released

Happy news! My book, Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja is finally in stock on Amazon! It's been available on Manning.com for over a month now but I think Amazon has been struggling to keep the books consistently in stock. You can get an ePub or Kindle version of the book at Manning.com. I've written about […]

Keeping Passwords in Source Control

I learned a neat tip from my co-worker, Craig Silverstein (more on Craig joining Khan Academy), recently and I thought others might find it to be useful. It has to deal with the eternal question: How do you store sensitive configuration options (such as usernames, passwords, etc.) in source control? Typically what I've done is […]
