Web Development Reading List #111: Preconnect, Dynamic Responsive Images, DOM Event Listeners

Advertisement

What’s going on in the industry? What new techniques have emerged recently? What insights, tools, tips and tricks is the web design community talking about? Anselm Hannemann1 is collecting everything that popped up over the last week in his web development reading list2 so that you don’t miss out on anything. The result is a carefully curated list of articles and resources that are worth taking a closer look at. — Ed.

Each week when reviewing links I’m grateful that so many people write such great articles. Useful technical articles that help you resolve front-end issues, inspirational articles that motivate you to enjoy work again, and sort of “social” articles that reveal that there are still start-ups out there that do their best to be meaningful, and not just seeking an exit strategy to sell out. I’d love more people in the world think like that, embrace their employees’ work time, try to force workaholics to stop working, and build health monitors in the team.

Concepts & Design Link

  • The Awesome collections got a new member: Awesome Stock Resources8 with a comprehensive overview of freely available stock photos and videos.

Tools Link

  • For me personally this is a very annoying thing: deprecated, abandoned branches in git repositories. A how to mass-delete local and remote branches10 is a good round-up of solutions to this problem, and just a good reminder to keep things clean and focused.
  • The new AVA test runner11 finally enables us to run tests much faster as it uses concurrency. You might want to check it out for your next project.
  • With iOS 9 Apple has introduced a new kind of WebView. A hint: with an iOS app you can test all available WebViews on iOS12 easily.

Security Link

  • Snyk13 finds and fixes known vulnerabilities in your Node.js dependencies. Also check out nsp14 which also can help you find vulnerabilities in your node.js applications.

And with that I’ll close for this week. Please feel free to support me with a donation25 or share this resource with other people. You can learn more about the costs of the project here26. It’s available via E-Mail, RSS and online.

Thanks and all the best,

Anselm
