Issue #130

Hello JavaScript fans!

From this week our newsletter includes a new section called “New Faces” with the latest projects added to Best of JS.

Our rankings are led this week by Aleph, which is the equivalent of Next.js in the Deno world: a full-stack framework to render applications in both backend and frontend sides, using React components.

Among the big trends this week, let’s mention the release of Tailwind CSS 2.0, the CSS framework that made popular the “utility classes” that let developers easily style any content in a web page.

Reach us on GitHub if you have any feedback about the newsletter format, thank you!

– Michael from Best of JS
