🔥 Node.js CLI, Alpine.js, Fastify.js, Raycast, and more — Weekly Picks #118
We are back again with another exciting post of weekly picks. We'll be sharing with you folks what developers had been looking at this week on Daily.
We also published a few posts last week, which we'd like to drop here in case if you missed them.
🚧 How to Report A Broken Link Or NSFW Content in Daily? — Learn how can you report broken links and NSFW content at Daily to make it safe and better for the Daily community.

👨💻 Start Contributing to Open Source With Daily — Get involved with open source by contributing to Daily.
And a lot more coming later this week!
⚡️ Now, let's jump to the weekly picks and see what developers found interesting last week!
Learn how you can actually add value to the stand-ups by helping the junior devs. I won't mind calling it a stand-up 101. I would recommend everyone to take a look and there's definitely something that you can take away from it. 💯
An interesting read to know why folks at FlatLogic removed jQuery from their products. The reading contains very valid arguments that led to this decision. If you use jQuery or used it before in your projects, you should read this. ⚡️
This post lists 10 popular applications that use React.js. Personally, I was expecting more than a mere list and short descriptions. But, if you are a beginner starting out, it might be a good post to know about the popularity and usage of React. 🔥
🧐 I believe that's something to which all software engineers can relate. Software development is hard, we often get exhausted, and have this feeling of not belonging. That's something everyone goes through and this post might help you feel better.
🎯 We rely on tons of applications on a Daily basis. Opening every single application every morning and staying up-to-date is hard. Raycast is a great app to help you manage all those apps — Jira, GitHub, and more directly from your desktop.
🤔 It's a very detailed article on getting started with Alphine.js by Phil at Smashing Magazine. It starts by comparing it with Vue, React, and JQuery and then goes deep into it with CodePen demos. Definitely worth reading.
Lastly, there is a great discussion in the comments that you can follow to develop a better overview.
As developers, sometimes we just don't want to leave terminal and get everything done inside it. Scripts and CLIs are our way to go in an effort to get things done via a terminal. Through this article, you can learn how you can build a simple CLI to download YouTube videos. ✨
Centering things in CSS used to be pretty hard. You had to manage it both horizontally and vertically. Thanks to modern CSS — flexbox, grid — it has become pretty easy now. This post discusses one approach to center things suing CSS (both horizontal and vertical). 🌟
Don't forget to check out the post comments. There is some good stuff in there.
🚀 Fastify is an open-source Node.js Framework with a plugin-based architecture and focuses on performance. I haven't heard of it before, so I can't say much. But if you are Node.js developer, you should definitely check it out.
That was all for this week. We will come back with another list of interesting development posts next week. Till then, peace! ✌️
