A bit of a wordy title, huh? What is server side rendering? What does it have to do with routing and page transitions? What the heck is Nuxt.js? Funnily enough, even though it sounds complex, working with Nuxt.js and exploring the benefits of isn't too difficult. Let's get started!
Front-end development has shifted to a modular approach, improving the encapsulation and structure of codebases. Tooling became a critical part of any project, and right now there are a lot of possible choices.
Webpack has gained popularity in the last years because of its power and scalability, but some developers found its configuration process confusing and hard to adopt.
I was recently doing some client work where I used both
<mask></mask>s in SVG to hide and show content for animation. When I started this project, I thought I knew all of the reasons to use one over the other. But, as tends to happen, working closely with something reveals idiosyncrasies. In this post, we'll go over some of these details so that you can get productive as soon as possible.
Filters are an interesting way to deal with data rendering in Vue but are only useful in a small amount of cases. The first thing to understand about filters is that they aren't replacements for methods, computed values, or watchers, because filters don't transform the data, just the output that the user sees. As of Vue 2.0, there are no built-in filters, we need to construct them ourselves.
The beautiful thing about Vue is that it's incredibly feature-rich. But even if you have an edge case not covered by the framework, it's got your back there as well, because you can quite easily create a custom directive.
Back by popular demand! It's difficult to keep track of all of the great talks and conferences happening in our industry. Sometimes you may find out too late that an event is taking place, and it's a real shame when it's an something you might have attended. We've compiled this list so you can see what's happening, both in your hometown, and abroad. This list will be updated throughout the year.
If you have a conference to add, we're happy to put it in! Please use the form at the bottom of the post.
I’m thrilled to announce a brand new workshop series I’m starting with Val Head about web animation! We’ll be taking two-day workshop around to different cities starting this November, starting with Austin and New York. Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been diving into animation already, this course won’t just get you started- you’ll leave with all the tools necessary to make subtle and beautiful web animations, and how to pick the right tools for the job.
To make sure you get as much out of these workshops as possible we’re keeping the the class sizes small. Each workshop is limited to 40 participants and will include hands-on exercises to get you started.
Like a lot of other developers, I’m working through my continued education learning what I can about ES6. One of the ways I’m doing this is to attend workshops by smart people. I went to Kyle Simpson’s ES6: The Good Parts course and found myself particularly interested in the practical applications of a piece of ES6 I had previously not noticed: Destructured Objects as Parameters.
