This week we’ve got a new remix dropping, Cloudflare announcing everything, and a Guy Fieri charm bracelet for that special someone in your life. Welcome to #75.
Developers stanning a new framework they haven’t used yet.
Introducing Remix v1.0
If you’ve opened Twitter in the last 3 months, you’ve probably heard of Remix. It’s a brand new React framework that no one used because it cost money, but now it’s free, so that’s cool. They recently raised some VC cash, hired Kent Dodds (as a founder), and today — they’ve released v1.0.
Now I know what you’re thinking – Kent’s name looks funny if you take out the C. Oh, also, hype aside, WTF actually is Remix?
Remix is three things – “A compiler, a React meta framework, a general purpose web framework that can deploy anywhere, even worker environments like cloudflare”.
Here are some other things that make it cool -
There’s also a growing ecosystem of packages for translations, authentication, and a bunch of other things.
Bottom Line: Time will tell if Remix becomes “the best way to build any web app”, but it definitely pushes the state of the art forward. I’m personally looking forward to watching Remix and Next.js directly compete with each other for users while simultaneously pretending that they’re not at all competing with each other for users.

Highlights from Cloudflare’s Full Stack Week
In my family, Full Stack Week refers to that time my mom went out of town, and my dad spent 4 hours making a huge stack of pancakes to feed me and my siblings for the next 6 days. (Mom did come back… eventually.)
Cloudflare’s Full Stack Week was kind of like that too — except instead of pancakes there were approximately 612 new releases and announcements. We’ll break down some of the most interesting ones here, and let you check out the rest on your own.
Full Stack Cloudflare Pages are now a thing. It’s basically CF Workers + Pages, which means you can deploy your entire app with a single commit. It also means that CF Pages can now do pretty much everything that Netlify can.
Services have replaced scripts as the “building blocks” for deploying apps on CF Workers. They’re composable (so they can talk to each other), and they’re able to support multiple environments — so you can test in a preview environment, then easily promote to production.
Bottom Line: $NET makes up over 50% of my public equities portfolio and you know now that I’m writing this out that seems like not a GREAT idea but also Stripe and Vercel are still private so like, i dunno. also this, lol
