Issue #64

Following the concept introduced last week we are including 2 types of rankings this week too.

The “growing fast” project of the week is TypeLighterJS, a vanilla JavaScript plugin to animate text as if it was being typed.

It’s very light (around 1 KB) and easy to integrate (just add data attributes in your HTML code).

The “trendiest” project of the week is Reactide, a code editor made specifically for React development.

The world of open-source IDE for web developers is still evolving… You may have tried Brackets, Atom and for sure you have heard about VS Code that is right now the “King”.

The main point: Reactide is already setup for React development, no developer tool to install (even if it’s extensible). For example, right out of the box it includes the “hot reload” mode and a “component tree” to visualize the application architecture.

The project is still under active development but the concept of integrating the developer tools right in the IDE (rather than relying on “devDependencies” to install and set up for every project) is really interesting.
