Learned two animations and interaction libraries for React!
First one was React Spring (and then I wrote an article):

This week, I learnt Flutter. As a React dev, I started learning React Native but found how slow it was. I would run it on a simulator and my Google Chrome would crash (couldn't even check StackOverFlow 😢). Naturally, I went to the next best option: Fluttter. I have been trying it out for the past few days and have seen that it is so much better than React Native. I will still use React (the best web framework) but I will not use React Native. Just because you are in an ecosystem (e.g. react ecosystem) doesn't mean you have to do everything in that ecosystem and hate everything else. I think that is the biggest thing I learnt this week
I spent some time discovering how best to optimise for Reader View in Safari. Looks like there’s a lot of nuance and I even found cases where it would change the layout. Got there in the end (mostly), after plenty of trial and error.
How to keep going even though I'm stuck af
Sometimes stepping away then coming back is what helps the most.
This week I've started an internet fundamentals course (hope to finish by the end of this week). I find it useful to refresh the knowledges from time to time
That's awesome! 🔥
I learnt about frontend test 😉
wget vs cURL
wget is not just GET request maker, but for downloading almost anything.
I started looking more in to Sass. I created media query breakpoints as mixins for the first time.
You won’t regret it! I haven’t written pure CSS out of choice for about 10 years now, I always opt for LESS/SASS.
When you get time, check out bourbon.io 🥃
I am learning node js behind the scene
I started learning React few weeks earlier and still do not feel confident enough to apply for a job.
This week I studied JS more deeply and I am simply amazed by it.
Nice! I. Case you weren’t aware. Kent C. Dodds has a great free beginner React course on egghead.io, kentcdodds.com/blog/the-beginners-.... Also, another great free React resource is Frontend Armory. It used to be a paid subscription, but now it’s entirely free. Check out frontarm.com.
Yes it was him(and official docs) who made me understand React.
I learned how to use Jekyll Collections. It helps me to separate specific series of content to their own place on my website.
This week I learned React Native. It is amazing for a developer to learn a new framework, and the experience was great!
i am learning NativeScript
Sounds like it would make for a great blog post.
I learnt how to make an ESLint plugin with a processor, ESLint configs, and stylelint configs.
I started learning how to use WebGL (I guess it's specifically WebGL2) to see if it would be a good fit for a project I'm working on!
