🔥 What's Hot in Web Development? — Weekly Picks #126
🌟 This week we have awesome web development content, VS Code extensions, new products, and even free books! It's a great chance to shout out to all the great devs that work in these hard times to deliver this incredible content. 🙌
So, let's get it started.
📚 This post contains a collection of free programming books. A list of 48 books available for download immediately about Ruby, React, Spring, Postgres and so much more.
An open-source plugin for automatic programming metrics and time tracking, right in your editor.
Install Code Time in your favorite IDE to start tracking how much time you code with detailed graphs and breakdowns. It supports almost every major IDE, including VS Code, IntelliJ, Sublime, Atom, and others ⏰
⚡ Yet another great list filled with awesome VS Code extensions. If you look to power up your VS Code setup and improve your productivity check it out.
Organise your snippets into branded folders
If you are like me, probably you have so many notes and projects you to copy-paste from, we can waste so much precious time looking for the right snippet. Codespace cleans the clutter and saves your snippets in one place organized and searchable. 🧹 It only costs $12.99 for 3-machines.
🎨 If you think about being a frontend developer, this post will help you understand what it means and what it takes. You even have a checklist there to make sure you've gone through all the steps and you are ready-to-go!
🆙 I guess this week you all looked to level-up your IDE setup. This is the second post that lists incredible VS Code extensions. This list is focused on extensions for productivity, to reduce development time, and style, to make your code look better.
This is part 8 of a 9-parts series about modern CSS solutions to daily struggles we have. Originally, it started as a DEV series, and now on this post [ModernCSS.dev](https://moderncss.dev] is officially launched and the stack is laid out for inspiring others. My favorite hack is IFTTT that watches RSS feed to trigger a deploy, such a great idea! 🚀
👨💻 Git and VS Code are probably among the top utilities for developers. This post covers the Timeline view that was released in March. The Timeline view is a unified view for visualizing time-series events for a file.
a list of hand-picked tools for frontend developers, sorted by categories
Exactly as the description says, UNeed is a side project that lists many popular tools and platforms divided by categories and is fully searchable. If you want to promote your own tool, it's also possible!
