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.

Daily Git Commands

Here are some of the Git commands that @wadecodez finds useful in day-to-day work. Knowing these commands can save you a lot of time, so it’s worth putting them to memory!

Why are some websites slower?

Understanding how the browser renders information is crucial to figuring out why a page loads slowly. @shreyvijayvargiya puts it simply in this article!

MERN DEV Replica

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Thanks to @marodevv for making a replica of DEV Community with the MERN stack! And big ups for contacting us via email and asking for our permission before doing this. πŸ™Œ

PureComponents vs Functional Components with hooks

@adevnadia takes a measured look at React's functional components w/hooks and the common complaints of "re-rendering hell" by looking back at PureComponent and the problem it solved in this thorough and thoroughly enjoyable breakdown.

One Command to SSH

Setting up SSH is not a trivial thing to do, but now it is a bit more approachable with the GitHub CLI. @bdougieyo shows us how to set up SSH so that we can identify ourselves to GitHub.

Stop Writing API Functions

Here are some reasons as to why you should stop writing functions for every endpoint if you are developing a front-end application which uses a back-end with RESTFUL APIs from @saeedmosavat.

Make your own API in Sheets

An API specifies how software components should interact. @varshithvhegde will show you how to make your own for free in Google Sheets!

That's it for our weekly Top 7 for this Tuesday! Keep an eye on this week for daily content and discussions...and be sure to keep an eye on this series in the future. You might just be in it!
