This is one of my personal favourites - as a Svelte JS fanboy. Mdsvex brings markdown to Svelte. Allowing you to build components and pages using markdown and Svelte hand in hand.
Snowpack is web application tool-chain that solves the problem of having to wait for an age for your code to be bundled each time you save a file. It does this by not bundling your code in ways that traditional tool-chains such as Rollup and Webpack would. Instead it server your application unbundled and when a file changes it rebuilds that individual file. No more lag between code updates and seeing the changed in your browser.
Gremlin is a platform that enables teams to test their application and infrastructure resilience by purposely throwing a spanner in the works. Overflowing the memory, maxing out the CPU, crashing a process. These real-life scenarios can be triggered by gremlin as training to see how your application/infrastructure will fair and how your teams will respond.
React hook form is a form library for React that boosts best in class performance and ease of use. The implementation is extremely lean and intuitive.
