Wrap your state object

Valtio turns the object you pass it into a self-aware proxy.

import { proxy, useSnapshot } from 'valtio'
const state = proxy({ count: 0, text: 'hello' })

Mutate from anywhere

You can make changes to it in the same way you would to a normal js-object.

setInterval(() => {
  ++state.count
}, 1000)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

React via useSnapshot

Create a local snapshot that catches changes. Rule of thumb: read from snapshots, mutate the source. The component will only re-render when the parts of the state you access have changed, it is render-optimized.

// This will re-render on `state.count` change but not on `state.text` change
function Counter() {
  const snap = useSnapshot(state)
  return (
    <div>
      {snap.count}
      <button

Motivation

A short motivational video clip to inspire us: https://youtu.be/rDMMYT3vkTk "You passed! All D's ... and an A!"

Goals

  1. Automate analysis and trust decisions on the security posture of open source projects.

  2. Use this data to proactively improve the security posture of the critical projects the world depends on.

Scorecard Checks

The following checks are all run against the target project by default:

Name Description
Active Did the project get any commits in the last 90 days?
Automatic-Dependency-Update Does the project use tools to automatically update its dependencies?
Binary-Artifacts Is the project free of checked-in binaries?
Branch-Protection Does the project use Branch Protection ?
CI-Tests Does the project run tests in CI, e.g. GitHub Actions, Prow

6. Beautiful React Diagrams

A collection of lightweight React components and hooks to build diagrams with ease

CI/CD License: MIT Coverage Status npm GitHub stars

beautiful-react-diagrams


A tiny collection of lightweight React components for building diagrams with ease

Diagrams banner

๐Ÿ’ก Why?

Javascript diagramming libraries are often difficult to integrate in React projects.
Different patterns not always fit the React nature and having a component's state in in sync with an external diagramming library might be quite difficult especially when the latter had been built in a different paradigm (such as MVC, for example).

For this reason we created beautiful-react-diagrams an easy-to-customise functional diagramming library to build diagrams with ease.

๐ŸŽ“ Principles

  • Lightweights: import nothing but a single lightweight javascript.
  • Controlled components: exports controlled components only.
  • Renderers: the involved components can be easily replaced with your own by using the renderer props.
  • Easy to style: built using CSS vars only.

โ˜•๏ธ Features

  • Concise API
  • Small and lightweight
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to customise
