Top 7 Featured DEV Posts from the Past Week

Every Tuesday we round up the previous week's top posts based on traffic, engagement, and a hint of editorial curation. The typical week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday, but don't worry, we take into account posts that are published later in the week.

14 Tips to Write Amazing CLI Apps

@wesen finds command-line tools an incredible way to multiply the impact of the code they produce. Here is a collection of tips gathered over the years writing CLI tools.

The Ideas behind Clean Code

For applications that tend to grow and remain for many years, the Clean Architecture approach is a good solution to use. However, for simple and non-evolving systems, it may not be worth the effort as you'll see from @rubemfsv

Finding Meaning in Software Engineering

@thawkin3 brings up some important thoughts about fulfillment and satisfaction in the workplace and beyond.

Lights on, Lights off

Whether you like to "dark mode all the things" like @whitep4nth3r or prefer to brighten up your screen, it's nice to have the option between light & dark mode. Learn how to provide that option with just 14 lines of CSS!

Can you Prevent Merge Conflicts?

Solving merge conflicts is fun! - said no one ever. @benjamincohen123 runs us through what merge conflicts are, how to resolve them, and maybe how to prevent them in the first place!

Building a Music Player

In this detailed tutorial, learn step-by-step how @madza created a music player in React to showcase their own music. Be sure to tune into Madza's beats as well. 🙌

The Novu project got funded!

@scopsy open-sourced the Novu project which now has more than 3,500 stars on GitHub! With their latest $6.6 million funding round, they’re ready to build this project with the help of the open source community.
