‘Moving more and more into a post-React world.’

November 12, 2021 By Mark Otto Off

‘Rust is the Future of JavaScript Infrastructure’ — It’s an opinion but the growing evidence is compelling. Rust (as well as Go) is now being heavily used to replace parts of the JavaScript tooling ecosystem that might have otherwise been written in JavaScript before (e.g. Rome, SWC, dprint).

The Invisible JavaScript ‘Backdoor’ — It’s one thing if you can read some code to discover sneaky backdoors, but what if the code looks totally fine, yet really it’s not? Invisible Unicode characters make it possible as we see (or not) here. One mitigation against this is to have your editor highlight such troublesome characters such as with the Gremlins extension for VS Code or Sublime Text.
