A Five Minutes Guide to Better Typography

Pierrick Calvez with, just maybe, a bunch of typographic advice that you’ve heard before. But this is presented very lovingly and humorously. Repeating the basics with typography feels important in the same way repeating the basics of performance does. Gzip your stuff. Make your line length readable. Set far expires headers. Make sure you have hierarchy. Optimize your images. Align left. Let’s repeat this stuff until people actually do it.

Template Literals are Strictly Better Strings

Nicolás Bevacqua wrote this a year ago, and I’d say with a year behind us he’s even more right. Template literals are always better. You don’t have to screw around with concatenation. You don’t have to screw around with escaping other quotes. You don’t have to screw around with multiline. We should use them all the time, and adjust our linting to help us develop that muscle memory. Besides the few things you can’t use them for (e.g. JSON), there is also the matter of browser support. It’s good, but no IE 11 for example. You’re very likely preprocessing your JavaScript with Babel anyway, and if you’re really smart, making two bundles.

Deploying ES2015+ Code in Production Today

Philip Walton suggests making two copies of your production JavaScript. Easy enough to do with a Babel-based build process. He put together a demo project for it all and you’re looking at 50% file size savings. I would think there would be other speed improvements as well, by using modern JavaScript methods directly.
