  • How to Sustain Quality and Velocity in a JavaScript or TypeScript Project?

    The JavaScript language and its ever-changing ecosystem of packages and practices can make codebases quickly become hard to maintain. The resulting loss of development velocity and/or code quality can be prevented without rewriting everything from scratch, nor pausing the development of new features. In this article, we have analyzed a few best practices to help avoid that.

  • Turning a Node.js Monolith into a Monorepo without Disrupting the Team

    Splitting monoliths into services creates complexity in maintaining multiple repositories (one per service) with separate (yet interdependent) build processes and versioning history. Monorepos have become a popular solution to reduce that complexity.

  • Pathpida Brings Types to Next.js and Nuxt.js Dynamic Routing with Zero Configuration

    Pathpida is a library for TypeScript projects to collect dynamic routes in one place. It is a tedious task to do manually. This helps check the existence of routes in large web apps. Pathpida is optimized for Next.js (React) and Nuxt.js (Vue). Pathpida can be added to existing Next.js and Nuxt.js projects without configuration.

  • Deno Introduction with Practical Examples

    Deno is a simple, modern, and secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript applications built with the Chromium V8 JavaScript engine and Rust, created to avoid several pain points and regrets with Node.js. Deno was originally announced in 2018 and reached 1.0 in 2020, created by the original Node.js founder Ryan Dahl and other mindful contributors.

  • Interview With Fastify Node.js Web Framework Co-Creator Matteo Collina

    Fastify is an open source, low performance overhead Node.js web framework filling a significant need in the ecosystem. Fastify emphasizes developer experience as a driving force in building a solid open source project and community. The Fastify project is part of the OpenJS Foundation.

  • Deno Loves WebAssembly

    The much anticipated Deno project has finally reached v1.0! Deno is created by the original developer of Node.js, Ryan Dahl, to address what he called “10 things I regret about Node.js”. Without an NPM-like system to incorporate native modules, how do we write server-side applications that require native performance on Deno? WebAssembly is here to help!

  • JavaScript and Web Development InfoQ Trends Report 2020

    The web development space is always an interesting one for us, with new JavaScript projects launched almost daily. Trying to decide which ones to focus on and which ones to ignore is particularly challenging. Developers can learn and gather inspiration from interesting approaches even if they do not currently use them in their daily development efforts.

  • Using TypeScript with the MySQL Database

    TypeScript has emerged as a powerful environment for authoring web applications, providing significant improvements over standard JavaScript while remaining consistent with the language. In this article we'll explore in depth the details necessary to use TypeScript with Node.js, MySQL, and TypeORM to create a powerful solution for managing database access with server-side TypeScript.

  • JavaScript and Web Development InfoQ Trends Report

    This InfoQ Trends Report looks at the current trends with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and web development in general, exploring technologies and options gaining further adoption, and those approaching their end of life. The rate of new JavaScript, CSS, HTML, and WebAssembly standards, as well as frameworks and other web technologies continues to accelerate substantially.

  • Transcrypt: Anatomy of a Python to JavaScript Compiler

    On the web front end, web development is one size fits all: JavaScript. The Transcrypt Python to JavaScript compiler is a relatively new open source project, aiming at executing Python 3.6 at JavaScript speed, with comparable file sizes. In this article, Jacques de Hooge talks about the requirements in building a transpiler and how Transcrypt is built to meet those demands.

  • Mobile Development Efficiency with NativeScript and Angular

    To meet both consumer demand and expectations, companies must develop for both mobile and web. Developing for both platforms is complex, but with the right tools and framework, the process is a little easier. In this article, TJ VanToll shows how to use NativeScript and Angular to develop cross platform apps.

  • Angular 2 and TypeScript - A High Level Overview
