I am thrilled to unveil a new way to turn your Figma designs into animated slide decks thanks to the open source plugin I recently published: Figma to DeckDeckGo 🥳.
You may ask yourself why would you export your content from Figma to DeckDeckGo? After-all it is possible to present a design without a 3rd party platform. I get that but, before making up your mind, let me list some advantages I do see in such a solution.
As all these projects are open source, I will share with you my recipe 🧑🍳.
I recently internationalized with the help of the community our project DeckDeckGo, but this article has for goal to add translations to a relatively small component or set of components without dependency.
I use this solution when I create components that contain some
slot with default values and which have has primary market our lovely “four languages +…
It took more time than expected to code such a Node.js function, that’s why I am sharing this solution, hoping it might help you some day too 😇.
npm i unzipper --save
My new feature reads and writes data uploaded in Firebase Storage through streams. I also develop my code with a promises (async / await) approach. …
I launched recently DiscoverWeekly.dev a website that shares each Wednesday the new music playlists made by the developers.
To spread the information and let people subscribe, in addition to an RSS feed, I opened a Twitter account and developed a Bot that tweets once a week about the news playlists as well.
Here is how you can also create a Twitter Bot that runs periodically in GitHub Actions.
Like everyone in the current situation, I miss being able to do a lot of different things such as hugging my mum, attending live events or being able to travel.
Recently, I also noticed I began to miss some immaterial things too, notably discovering new music to listen to totally unpredictably and not through an algorithm. Those bands and songs for which I fall in love for no other particular reason than the fact that they remind me a good memory.
In this particular tool, I defer the heavy work to Web Workers so that the UI does not find itself in a blocking state.
It is possible to populate Gatsby websites using Cloud Firestore with existing plugins and CMS but, you might be looking to implement such solution by yourself, without dependencies, to get the full control on the process.
In this article I will show you, step by step, how to collect Firestore data to build Gatsby static websites. …
This last Christmas break, with the exception of visiting my parents for a couple of days (after having forced myself into a sort of autolockdown period first), I didn’t have any big plans. That’s why, I took the opportunity to improve my software development knowledge.
As I better learn concepts by applying them to real applications rather than writing examples, I decided to create a little scanner progressive web app (PWA) entirely made with the web.
I called it Rebel Scan because it’s just a little scanner app, you rebel scum!
The past few days, I have re-build from the ground up the website of DeckDeckGo with the goals to extract static content from our editor for slides and, to develop the foundation to internationalize our platform.
At first, I was looking to experiment a new method but, did not find any which worked well for me. That’s why I developed this new website with Gatsby using my own recipe, again.
Doing so, I learned…
I am not sure anyone will ever need the following tricks but, at my client’s place, we have an application which can only be accessed through an URL which contains a dynamic base64 parameter. Needless to say, it makes its local development a bit inconvenient.
In addition, I have to admit, I am not a big fan of CLI’s options which can automatically open browser. Even though I mostly use the Chrome Incognito mode for development purpose, I like to switch often between browsers to try out what I developed.
Finally, I don’t use bookmarks (don’t judge me) and, I…
