What is the maximum not unusual viewport measurement? When will local CSS nesting land in browsers? And the way may you maximize your long run process wage?

This week’s Internet Weekly comprises all of the solutions and a lot more. Experience!

There have been some e-newsletter discussions on Twitter closing week (I nonetheless refuse to name it “X” πŸ˜…), and a couple of folks plugged Internet Weekly.

Boris, Jeremias, Nick, and Carlos, thanks! πŸ’™

Let’s get to internet stuff, lets?

One thing that made me smile lift an eyebrow this week

Empty user package with 85k npm downloads

How are you able to “handle” a bundle with over 80k downloads that does precisely not anything? Smartly… give it a reputation that individuals by accident confuse with an npm command. But the empty person bundle’s obtain numbers are emerging per thirty days. It is wild and simply any other instance of the insecure JavaScript ecosystem. 😒

Do not by accident set up this person

Tricky to appreciate interview guidelines

These are the two things you must avoid. Both involve how you talk to recruiters at the start of your job search, way before there’s an offer: 1) Revealing information too early in the game 2) Negotiating before you’re ready

Disclaimer: ahead of studying the next, negotiation recommendation is hard to position into follow. The usual recommendation is at all times to prolong speaking about cash. However whether or not it is a dialog with a recruiter or a possible teammate, now not answering questions on wage expectancies is amazingly difficult as a result of you need to delight the individual in entrance of you.

I as soon as attempted to delay speaking about cash and were given the answer, “Smartly… we do not do this right here”. Case closed, I leaned in. πŸ˜…

So, I will be able to’t say I am in particular just right at negotiating β€” however the guidelines in “How one can sabotage your wage negotiations efforts ahead of you even get started” make sense!

Use the platform β€” the JavaScript infra version

let formHandler = (req: Request) => {   let data = Object.fromEntries((await req.formData()).entries()), "New Form Submission"); }

I assume, we are each in the similar boat and would possibly not construct our personal JavaScript-based SaaS provider quickly. But when we have been, we will have to keep away from including “lovable options”. πŸ˜…

Steven Krouse shared why good concepts like a console.e mail() means or customized Language extensions akin to @stefanjudis/fetch() temporarily change into a repairs nightmare.

The disadvantage of cross-document view transitions

View Transitions Break Incremental Rendering

As a Internet Weekly reader, you will have to have spotted how excited I’m about View Transitions throughout HTML navigations. The internet would possibly not be the similar when those land throughout browsers.

Alternatively, transitioning from one HTML doc to any other comes with a couple of demanding situations.

What will have to occur if the objective doc takes ages to load? Must we display a janky transition to not anything? Must we prolong rendering? And if that is so, for a way lengthy?

Eric Portis will get into conceivable answers!

Take note of the downsides

Additionally, I realized that <script blocking off="render"> is a factor. 😲

ESLint laws to put in writing higher JavaScript

// πŸ‘Ž async () => {   try {     return await getUser(userId);   } catch (error) {     // Handle getUser error   } }  // πŸ‘ async () => {   try {     const user = await getUser(userId);     return user;   } catch (error) {     // Handle getUser error   } }

I nonetheless have to analyze why there is a downside with the primary snippet (☝️), however nonetheless β€” figuring out why positive linting laws are in position is at all times just right for keeping off footguns. And everyone knows JavaScript has lots. πŸ˜…

Construction lists

It isn’t a platform characteristic, however cool nonetheless. Think you need to make use of scroll-driven animations with ScrollTimeline; there may be now a JavaScript polyfill for it! πŸ‘‡

πŸŽ‰ Because the closing lacking browser, Chromium 118 will after all get the :user-invalid pseudo-class. (Chrome worm price ticket)

πŸŽ‰ And as any other Chrome goodie β€” relative CSS colour syntax landed in Chrome Canary, too!
