This Week In React #89: Remix, Remotion, Preact, Nextra, Relay, JSI, Skia, SwiftUI, TypeScript, web3...
I have a newsletter called This Week In React. I thought you may be interested to read its content on Hashnode directly, let me know if you like it.
This is a calm week for React in terms of content and announcements.
Remix continues to benefit from great marketing from its early adopters.
Did you know: React hooks could have been called "augmentors" 🤔

An interesting setup, which shows that we can mix Remix and Next.js inside the same Node.js server. This help design an incremental migration strategy to adopt or assess Remix.
Another nice demonstration of the features of Remix. Being able to call Prisma from loader functions is quite powerful. It reminds other solutions like Next.js (but in a more co-located way) and server components.
Latest release for this React video production lib. The Remotion player is now stable. A new Error Overlay and an Audiogram template. The next release will surely be 3.0 with AWS lambda serverless rendering support and the ability to encode videos very quickly!
- Avoid waterfalls of queries in Remix loaders: even if Remix manages to parallelize the requests, you still have to use
Promise.all ()inside a loader function
- Remix is recruiting: remote-first, min 4h overlap with USA
- Preact now has a Tutorial: 10 minutes to learn this React lightweight alternative with a nice code editor ad preview
- Relay 13.0: including the new Rust compiler
- Nextra 2.0 work-in-progress: nice stack planned for this upgrade of the Next.js SSG (docs/blog) tool. Good competition for Docusaurus 😯
- Three ways to create 3D particle effects: for those like me learning Three.js 😏

Great article from Stefan Baumgartner, full of good advice with which I fully agree. This should make it easier to get started with TypeScript and to gradually increase your skills without tears and pain. TIL about the
Chris Coyier's analysis on a new polyfill for container queries: a new, eagerly awaited CSS feature extremely useful for the encapsulation of responsive design (media queries) in component-based frameworks like React. This polyfill looks usable today for client-rendered apps, if you need SSR support it will unfortunately lead to FOUC until browsers support this.
Great post about the "web 3" from the Signal app creator, showing some surprisingly weird things in the current state of blockchain and NFT technologies. Many great answers from Web 3 leaders (like Vitalik). Also worth reading: The Myth of Decentralization and Lies about Web 2.0.
This lib allows Node.js to interact efficiently with Rust code, and is increasingly used in our modern frontend tooling. V2 is a backward compatible rewrite that resolves some existing limitations, provide some automated binding files generations and new features. WebAssembly support planned.
