Remix Vite-first

๐Ÿฆ Remix is now Vite-first

After a relatively short period of transition where Remix introduced a Vite-integration marked as unstable, this has now been marked stable and immediately became the new default. I personally really enjoyed seeing this quick transition and think Remix plus Vite is a strong combination, and having Vite be the development environment and compiler for Remix allows the Remix team to decrease their surface area and concentrate on core framework capabilities, which is a good thing! A newly created Remix project now only has a Vite config file referencing a Remix plugin, which I think is a beautiful instance of simplification!

React Native RSC

๐Ÿฆ Demo of React Server Components on React Native

Conference season is coming up, and the announcements get fewer as people are saving the best for the big stages. One of the topics Iโ€™m looking most forward to hearing more about at the upcoming conferences is React Server Components on React Native. Now Szymon Rybczak from Callstack has published an interesting demo of RSC running in RN. Iโ€™m really curious to learn more about it, and glad that Szymon has announced that heโ€™ll publish a detailed blog post and the code soon.
