Weekly Picks No. 3

These are programming and non-programming things I found interesting this past week (25.01.16 - 31.01.16) and why:

  • github.com/zeithq/micro
    • Very intersting micro services library with a beautifully minimalistic API. An excellent example for good APIs.
  • Typescript 1.8 Beta
    • I’m a huge fan of Typescript and the 1.8 release will make it even better, allowing for easier JS and TS interop. I’m looking forward to using it.
  • Alduin Colourscheme
    • I’ve been using base16-ocean (light and dark) up until now, but I instantly fell in love with this colourscheme, and am now using it both for my terminal as well as vim.

  • ArcadeRS
    • An excellent and very detailed tutorial on how to write a game in Rust and generally a great Rust intro.
  • preact
    • “⚡️ Fast 3kb React alternative with the same ES6 API. Components & Virtual DOM”. Looks very promising and with TS 1.8’s new option --reactNamespac this can even be used in TS withough much pain.
