    1. Why Progressive Web App Will Be Next Game Changer

      The development of the mobile app industry is immense and it is increasing day by day. Well, many of us don’t have an idea about of Progressive Web Apps, but they are gradually changing the mobile landscape. Launched by Google in 2015, PWAs are gaining popularity today. Let us see in depth more about Progressive Web Apps.

    1. subjective orientation toward freedom, progress, and self-growth that is so clearly formative for Elizabeth Bennet is not taken for granted by Austen as normative for all women. Charlotte Lucas marries Mr. Collins and expects to live a fulfilling life with him. Conscious of Elizabeth’s differing views, Charlotte anticipates being hurt by her friend’s disapprobation, but makes no excuses for her marriage as an act martyrdom or of submis-sion to crushing necessity

      Moe argues here that Elizabeth is the progressive one, yet it seemed to me earlier in the article that Charlotte's actions would be expressed as modern in their own way (at least that is what I gained from reading aspects of this article). Is Moe trying to prove both?

    1. However, we are willing to work with you on what's really bothering you if you stop behaving like Subhuman sacks of dog shit. Let's fight the influence of big business and Electoral Corruption together. Let's get Universal Basic Income done so not just you, but every American is always secure. Let's end the pointless wars. Let's revitalize and stimulate our inner cities

      Voters have been known throughout history, most recently in 2016, to vote against their own interests for reasons that are, frankly, stupid.

    1. Library (originally from Mozilla) for building components based on the W3C Web Components specs

    1. A Web Component that can be used to pull fragments of HTML from the server and replace some placeholder content in the page once the fragment loads.

    1. Framework for fast PE-navigation by updating just sections of a page that change during navigation, rather than reloading the whole page.

    1. An experimental performance comparison of client and server-side templating on desktop and mobile, focusing on time to first paint and time to last paint metrics.

      The server is written in Go. The client is the simplest possible client-side templating you can do (using a <template> element and a few DOM API calls), so no frameworks involved.

      Some takeaways:

      • Everything on mobile is ~5x slower than desktop
      • For small amounts of data, there is little difference in time to first paint
      • Server-side rendering generates a modestly larger HTML payload vs. sending JSON down to the client
      • Time to first paint is faster for SSR as the client can render markup as it is streaming down, but this is only significant when there is a decent amount of data on the page
    1. Server-rendered markup can be progressively enhanced as element definitions are registered and upgraded by the browser.

      Question - How is the server-rendering done and in what language?

    1. I came across this from a post reflecting on the last Chrome summit.

      The splash pages which appear to be basic static content with little interactivity load a 1.5MB JS bundle (500KB gzipped). Flipping back and forwards between pages feels sluggish in Firefox. My initial hypothesis is that letting the client's side router tear down the DOM for the current route and build up the DOM for the new route might be slower than just relying on the browser's back/forwards cache as a set of boring static pages would do.

    1. progressive change

      Which isn’t that clear from an outside perspective. It often sounds a bit like some form of Left-leaning perspective, in a French tradition («La Gauche»), but it’s also predicated on a fairly neoliberal notion of progress.

    1. Hardly a scientific survey, but the answers on Twitter and offline have been surprisingly consistent: server-side React for graceful degradation, jQuery and possibly shared templates (e.g. Mustache) for progressive enhancement

    1. Good article on progressive enhancement. Jake Archibald now works for Google, I'm not sure if that was the case at the time.

    1. John Muir, a naturalist, writer, and founder of the Sierra Club, invoked the “God of the Mountains” in his defense of the valley in its supposedly pristine condition.

      The "Gods of the mountains" line was a piece of Muir's larger metaphor for the holiness of natural places that figured those who would develop them as "temple destroyers." Here's the full quote from Muir's defense of the Hetch Hetchy in his book The Yosemite.:

      These temple destroyers, devotees of ravaging commercialism, seem to have a perfect contempt for Nature, and, instead of lifting their eyes to the God of the mountains, lift them to the Almighty Dollar.

      Dam Hetch Hetchy! As well dam for water-tanks the people's cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.
