Today is a great day solely because Apple just killed the touch bar. Welcome to #70.
You're right. You have 2 triangles, and I have 163 million dollars.
NuxtJS just launched its public beta for v3 -- a jam-packed release that they've been working on since July 2020.
Nuxt's creators also recently launched the NuxtLabs company and raised $2m back in May, allowing them to purchase one more triangle for Nuxt's logo than Vercel has. Your move, Guillermo.
What's new in Nuxt 3? There's a lot. We can't cover everything, but here's the highlights:
Suspense -- You can fetch data in any component, either before or after navigation (similar to Suspense functionality in React 18).
Support for the latest & greatest tech -- Nuxt 3 now supports TypeScript and ESM out of the box, along with new support for Vue 3, Webpack 5, and Vite -- which now makes Hot Module Replacement possible for Nuxt apps.
By all accounts, Nuxt 3 looks like a game changer that should make it easier and smoother than ever to build cool stuff with Vue.
Once in a lifetime opportunity: Hello Sharks, I'm ending this story by giving you a quick pitch for our hot new project -- SvextJS. Hear me out: Our logo has three triangles, our framework is meta AF, and our design system is just a single Jay-Z lyric, "all black everything."
It's been a long 16 months, but the wait is finally over: you can now order Parcel-branded baby onesies, the perfect holiday gift for all the special babies in your life.
Oh, and Parcel also just released the long-awaited 2.0 release of the OG no-config bundler.
2.0 keeps the same broad file support and no-config attitude as the previous version, while introducing a ~~bunch~~ bundle of new features:
It also passes the Bundler Tooling Tests with flying colors (still waiting for its results in the Bundler Turing Test).
In terms of speed, Parcel 2's new Rust-powered compiler makes it significantly faster than v1, though it still doesn't come close to matching the absurd speed of its arch-nemesis, esbuild (as Evan Wallace noted in this Grade-A humble brag. But unlike esbuild, Parcel does support plugins.
Why use it? Parcel's a great option if you want a bundler that just works and is plenty fast without requiring you to mess around with a bunch of configuration. React, Vue, Elm... it even lets you import GLSL files, so you can finally impress your crush with your awesome WebGL skills. Parcel was a solid option before, but this new update makes it an even more compelling choice for web app bundling.

ESLint 8.0 just came out, so it's now easier than ever for your computer to openly berate your programming skills.
Serverless Examples is a collection of boilerplates and examples of serverless architectures built with the Serverless Framework on AWS Lambda, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Functions, and more. A catchier title for this repo would've been Fast Casual (because those restaurants don't have servers, obviously), but we'll get over it.
Is Deno still a thing? Fernando Doglio literally wrote the book on Deno, so we're guessing that this article title is just another one of those "rhetorical questions" -- like the ones my mom asked to make me feel guilty as a child.
Swyx wrote about why he now thinks Tailwind CSS is the Goldilocks styling solution. And Swyx likes his CSS porridge at a very specific temperature, so this is big news.
Jake Archibald (a developer advocate on the Chrome Team) wrote about How to Win at CORS. If he had just written an article on "How to Win at CHORES" about 20 years ago, then my mom wouldn't have had to get so rhetorical on me back in the early 2000's.
Robot is a small, functional and immutable Finite State Machine library that may or may not be based on I, Robot -- a 2004 thriller starring Will Smith that many film critics agree is probably the defining film of our generation, despite only receiving a 56% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is the first ever newsletter that I open a music playlist for and maximize my browser window just to read it in peace. Kudos to @uidotdev for great weekly content.
The Bytes newsletter is a work of art! It's the only dev newsletter I'm subscribed too. They somehow take semi boring stuff and infuse it with just the right amount of comedy to make you chuckle.
Bytes has been my favorite newsletter since its inception. It's my favorite thing I look forward to on Mondays. Goes great with a hot cup of coffee!
I subscribe to A LOT of dev (especially JS/TS/Node) newsletters and Bytes by @uidotdev is always such a welcomed, enjoyable change of pace to most (funny, lighthearted, etc) but still comprehensive/useful.
Literally the only newsletter I’m waiting for every week.
Bytes is the developer newsletter I most look forward to each week. Great balance of content and context! Thanks @uidotdev.
The sense of humor and structure of the Bytes Newsletter is first class and the information that comes with it is enough to make a mini course.
Very few newsletters manage to be useful and not very boring. @uidotdev manages to achieve these pretty effortlessly. You can almost see Tyler chuckle as he writes them.
