Founder and curator of Full Frontal. Creator of awesome projects like JS Bin, HTML 5 Demos, MIT-License.org, Nodemon and more
Thank Remy Sharp for the AMA 👏
Hi Rem! I am a huge fan of HTML5 Doctor. Great to see you here.
What's your take on CSS frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, etc? Would you personally recommend them to other developers?
Hey Remy, Where are you headed with JSBin, considering the competition from CodePen and JSFiddle?
PS: I am an avid fan of JSBin! :)
Great to see you here Remy!
My question : Are you happy with the current implementation of CSS Flexbox?
Do you find jsbin a work of love or do you like to have projects like it to bounce between client work?
What was the initial motivation behind this commit of JSBin?
Why did you open source JSBin?
- How do you go about architecting applications on the front end?
- Do you use the BEM methodology when developing your applications?
- How do you go about learning new stuff? Do you go theory mode first or practice with code first and read docs / ask for help on the way while developing a project?
- What kind of projects do you test your newly learned skills from a framework / language? Are they small, big or just a throwaway projects?
What's the best way to componentize your CSS when you are not using any modern day JS frameworks (ReactJS, Polymer, etc)? Currently, I am using Less and I am wondering should every component (header, footer, etc.) have a different .less file?
What's the best way to do it? How do you do it?
Hi Rem, Do you have any productivity hacks that you can recommend? Also do you actively write Node.js apps these days?
Another question : How do you handle haters who claim Node is not really ready for production? Yeah, I have given many examples of sites using it ..PayPal, LinkedIn etc etc.. But I need a solid one liner! :D
How do you go about implementing zero down time deployment in Node.js web apps? Is pm2 the only way? What do you recommend?
Thanks for doing the AMA, Remy. :)
As you said you are planning to make Docker a part of release process in JS Bin, how has your overall experience been with Docker? Just curious!
What are your favourite CLI tools, if any? What does your typical day look like?
Nodemon is awesome, but it doesn't seem to cooperate with babel when using passPerPreset for a Relay application. I put my issue on stackoverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/37358270/babel-passperpreset-option-breaks-nodemon-watch), but no one seems to know the answer. Do you know about this incompatibility or how to fix it?
Thanks for creating Nodemon. We use it everyday in our projects. So, thanks for that. I have some questions :
- Do you think jQuery will last for next 5 years?
- What's your favourite HTML5 API?
- What tech stack are you using these days?
These Question are cluster fucks mate! Anyway, have you checked out webpackbin? If you haven't give it a look, they let you create an arbitrary amount of js tabs. Which is handy for prototyping demos and libs. Multiple JS tabs in jsbin would be helpful!
What's next from Left Logic? JSBin, nodemon and Full Frontal are great resources for software developers. Thanks for making them. ♥️
When you launched JS Bin there was no React. Considering it's now on React, why did you choose to rewrite it?
What does your React infrastructure look like - Tests, State management etc..?
Who do you think will win - Angular 2 or React?
Who are some developers you admire? And, why is your twitter handle "rem"? Does it have any connection with the rem units in CSS? ;)
Another question, you mention in a few answers already that you prefer not tonuse build tools. First question why? And what's your development flow and packaging like?
