We’re developers working on projects with technology we love every day. We must keep up with the ever-changing web platform, new patterns and libraries popping up. So we need some time to get familiar with these new things. Time to educate ourselves in order to make our customers happy. At inovex we decided to share the knowledge we accumulate in this blog series: State of the Web (SOTW)!
Today we start something new
And here it is: The first iteration of a new format we want to publish on a regular basis. We internally pre-select some interesting new topics we want to dive into and create a compressed, easy-to-read summary with some practical code snippets. To top it off, we discussed some specific topics in a podcast. We hope you enjoy!
The State of the Web August 2018
In the first part of this SOTW we have a look at Node.js 10, which offers better performance and new language features through an updated version of V8, a promisified file system API and a stable version of the N-API.
TypeScript 2.8 and 2.9 have been released with lots of new features. In this is summary I will be focusing on what I personally find handy and group it by usage. Let’s hop right in!
The Clipboard API is useful for customizing copy/cut/paste actions in the browser, eg. for reformatting the structure of the copied content, attaching metadata or adding external data to the content, copy/cut/paste on click or explicitly setting the content type. Let’s dive in.
As this is our first State of the Web we are looking forward to getting some feedback from you. Please feel free to leave your suggestions on how we can improve this series in the future in the comments below. If you like it, share this article on the social platforms you love!
