There is a lot of existing web dev newsletters that you might be already using to get your news. This one is a very opinionated collection of finds that I personally find interesting.

Fullstack

https://www.streamlit.io – A pure Python ecosystem to build data frontends for your research. Similar to: Jupyter Notebooks.

CSS

https://seek-oss.github.io/capsize/ – CSS tooling to bind fonts into predictable sizing or something like that.

https://github.com/tomhodgins/quark – Microscopic CSS polyfill.

Javascript

https://www.snowpack.dev/ – Bleeding-edge Javascript anti-bundler, definitely hyped enough to try.

https://blitzjs.com/ – Fullstack React framework. A Next.js competitor, I guess?

https://github.com/rbuckton/prex – Async coordination for Javascript and Typescript.

https://www.prisma.io/ – Open database toolkit for Node.js and Typescript.

https://www.codingwithjesse.com/blog/sapper-is-dead-whats-next-in-svelte/ – Sapper, a Svelte development framework, turns out to be a bit dead.
