‘React I Love You, but You’re Bringing Me Down’ — An opinionated React thought piece that’s provoked much discussion this week. The author gets creative by checkpointing the progress (or lack thereof) of React over the years in ‘mix tape’ style with code and memes sprinkled in for good measure. (Hacker News went deep on this item and spawned some interesting sub-threads covering topics like whether there are any ‘greener JS pastures’ or not.)

Storing State in the URL with URLSearchParams — We love what the creator said about this: “I love this more than I can reasonably explain; it’s a generic React hook for storing state in the URL with the querystring/URLSeachParams. So handy for making shareable links.”

Mantine 5.4: A Full Featured React Component Library — We don’t want to feature every release Mantine has, but they’re making so much progress and doing such great work lately that they deserve the attention right now. v5.4 adds validateInputOnBlur, non-linear scales for sliders, a new way to organize ‘switch’ components, and more. Mantine UI also gained 10 new components.
