Getting to Know the useReducer React Hook


useReducer is one of a handful of React hooks that shipped in React 16.7.0. It accepts a reducer function with the application initial state, returns the current application state, then dispatches a function. Here is an example of how it is used; const [state, dispatch] = useReducer(reducer...

Spam Detection APIs


I was trying to research the landscape of these the other day — And by research, I mean light Googling and asking on Twitter. Weirdly, very little comes to mind when thinking about spam detection APIs. I mean some kind of URL endpoint, paid or not, where you can hit it with a block of text...

Building a Conference Schedule with CSS Grid


It’s hard to beat the feeling of finding a perfect use for a new technology. You can read every handy primer under the sun and ooh-and-ahh at flashy demos, but the first time you use it on your own project… that’s when things really click. I gained a new appreciation for CSS Grid when building...

Reduced Motion Picture Technique, Take Two


Did you see that neat technique for using the <picture> element with <source media=""> to serve an animated image (or not) based on a prefers-reduced-motion media query? After we shared that in our newsletter, we got an interesting reply from Michael Gale: What about folks who love...

Managing WordPress Metadata in Gutenberg Using a Sidebar Plugin


WordPress released their anticipated over to the post editor, nicknamed Gutenberg, which is also referred to as the block editor. It transforms a WordPress post into a collection of blocks that you can add, edit, remove and re-order in the layout. Before the official release, Gutenberg...

So, you think you’ve got project management nailed down


Who needs a project manager? You're an organized person who can keep track of your own work, right? Wrong. Well, wrong if you're part of a team. The thing about being self-organized is that it's related to project management but not synonymous with it. Case in point: what happens if your project...

So, you think you’ve got project management nailed down


(This is a sponsored post.) Who needs a project manager? You're an organized person who can keep track of your own work, right? Wrong. Well, wrong if you're part of a team. The thing about being self-organized is that it's related to project management but not synonymous with it. Case in point:...

How to Increase Your Page Size by 1,500% with webpack and Vue


What we don’t have are enough articles showing you how to increase your page size. In fact, the only article I could find was this one from the Geek Squad which ended up being about making the font size bigger. This is a good start, but I think we can do better. The post How to Increase Your Page...

How to Section Your HTML


The sectioning elements in HTML5 are <nav>, <aside>, <article>, and <section>. <body> is also kind of a sectioning element since all content lying inside of it is part of the default document section. Here is a brief explanation of each sectioning element...

Managing State in React using Unstated-Next


In a previous post, we saw how to manage state using Unstated. As you might recall, Unstated uses React’s built-in setState to allow you create components that can consume state by subscribing to a provider — like the React’s Context API. Well, we’re going to build off that last post by looking...

Components, yo.


I see VuePress just went 1.0. Explained simply, it's a static site generator based on Vue. But of course, you work in Vue, which means you work in components. All the modern JavaScript frameworks are component-based. Even when they disagree with each other about specific things (like how Svelte...

Drawing Realistic Clouds with SVG and CSS


Greek mythology tells the story of Zeus creating the cloud nymph, Nephele. Like other Greek myths, this tale gets pretty bizarre and X-rated. Here’s a very abridged, polite version. Nephele, we are told, was created by Zeus in the image of his own beautiful wife. A mortal meets Nephele, falls...

A11Y with Lindsey


Lindsey Kopacz has a wonderful blog about accessibility. I've seen a number of her articles making the rounds lately and I was like, dang I better make sure I'm subscribed. For example: An Introduction to ARIA States 3 Simple Tips to Improve Keyboard Accessibility Create custom keyboard accessible...

Using Cypress to Write Tests for a React Application


End-to-end tests are written to assert the flow of an application from start to finish. Instead of handling the tests yourself — you know, manually clicking all over the application — you can write a test that runs as you build the application. That’s what we call continuous integration and it’s...

Everything You Need to Know About Date in JavaScript


Date is weird in JavaScript. It gets on our nerves so much that we reach for libraries (like Date-fns and Moment) the moment (ha!) we need to work with date and time. But we don't always need to use libraries. Date can actually be quite simple if you know what to watch out for. In this article...

Level up your .sort game


Sorting is a super handy JavaScript method that can display the values of an array in a certain order. Whether that’s real estate listings by price, burger joints by distance, or best nearby happy hours by rating, sorting arrays of information is a common need. If you’re already doing this with...

Using DevTools to Improve the UX Design to Development Process


I’d like to tell you how I see code and design intersect and support one another. Specifically, I want to cover how designers can use code in their everyday work. I suggest this not because it’s a required skill, but because even a baseline understanding of coding can make designs better and...

What if we got aspect-ratio sized images by doing almost nothing?


Say you have an image you're using in an <img> that is 800x600 pixels. Will it actually display as 800px wide on your site? It's very likely that it will not. We tend to put images into flexible container elements, and the image inside is set to width: 100%;. So perhaps that image ends...

How to Use the Web Share API


The Web Share API is one that has seemingly gone under the radar since it was first introduced in Chrome 61 for Android. In essence, it provides a way to trigger the native share dialog of a device (or desktop, if using Safari) when sharing content — say a link or a contact card — directly from...
