Real-Time Communication Protocols: A Developer's Guide With JavaScript
Thu, 29 Feb 2024

Real-time communication has become an essential aspect of modern applications, enabling users to interact with each other instantly. From video conferencing and online gaming to live customer support and collaborative editing, real-time communication is at the heart of today's digital experiences. In this article, we will explore popular real-time communication protocols, discuss when to use each one, and provide examples and code snippets in JavaScript to help developers make informed decisions.

WebSocket Protocol

WebSocket is a widely used protocol that enables full-duplex communication between a client and a server over a single, long-lived connection. This protocol is ideal for real-time applications that require low latency and high throughput, such as chat applications, online gaming, and financial trading platforms.

Top NodeJS Frameworks for 2024

Extensive React Boilerplate to Kickstart a New Frontend Project
Wed, 14 Feb 2024

How much time do we typically spend on project setup? We're talking about configuring installed libraries and writing boilerplate code to structure and implement best practices for achieving optimal website performance. At Brocoders, we often start new projects from scratch. That's why, over three years ago, we created a NestJS boilerplate for the backend so that we wouldn't have to spend time developing core functionality that the end user doesn't see but is crucial for developers. Over this time, the boilerplate has received 1.9k stars on GitHub and has gained significant popularity beyond our company. Now, we've decided to take it a step further and created the Extensive React Boilerplate for the frontend. Its purpose is to keep our best practices in project development together, avoiding familiar pitfalls and reducing development time.

Modules and Libraries Included in the Boilerplate

To have server-side rendering out of the box, automatic page caching, preloading, and other speed optimizations, we use the Next.js framework. It extends React by adding static site generation and is a powerful tool for creating productive and SEO-friendly web applications. To ensure code reliability, performance, and readability in the boilerplate, TypeScript is utilized.

JS Toolbox 2024: Frameworks and Static Site Generators
Wed, 14 Feb 2024

JavaScript is bigger than ever, and the ecosystem is nothing short of overwhelming. In this JS toolbox 2024 series, we’ve selected and analyzed the most noteworthy JS tools, so that you don’t have to.

In part 1 of this series, we reviewed runtimes and package managers, the foundational building blocks of your software project. So in part 2, we're analyzing the tools that form the walls and roof that give your software project its structure: frameworks and static site generators.

Optimizing User Experience in React Native
Tue, 13 Feb 2024

One day, the company I work in decided that it needed a mobile app. Our front-end team volunteered to help with this interesting project. As we all know, React Native is the best way to start developing mobile apps if you are a front-end developer, especially if you are developing by using the React library. That's how we started working on our WMS app.

As far as the app was growing, we started thinking about its performance checking-up and ways to optimize it.

Unleashing the Power of WebAssembly to Herald a New Era in Web Development
Thu, 08 Feb 2024

The continuous upgrades in the landscape of web development are empowering software developers every day with all the leverage they need to enhance performance, improve efficiency, and create richer user experiences across various domains. Enter WebAssembly (Wasm), a game-changing technology that is setting the stage for a new era in web development. Follow along as we delve into the intricacies of WebAssembly, discuss its impact on web development, and understand how it's becoming an indispensable tool in a developer's arsenal for all the right reasons.  

But first, let’s find out what WebAssembly is. 

Next Generation Front-End Tooling: Vite
Mon, 05 Feb 2024

In this article, we will look at Vite core features, basic setup, styling with Vite, Vite working with TypeScript and frameworks, working with static assets and images, building libraries, and server integration.

Why Vite?

  • Problems with traditional tools: Older build tools (grunt, gulp, webpack, etc.) require bundling, which becomes increasingly inefficient as the scale of a project grows. This leads to slow server start times and updates.
  • Slow server start: Vite improves development server start time by categorizing modules into “dependencies” and “source code.” Dependencies are pre-bundled using esbuild, which is faster than JavaScript-based bundlers, while source code is served over native ESM, optimizing loading times.
  • Slow updates: Vite makes Hot Module Replacement (HMR) faster and more efficient by only invalidating the necessary chain of modules when a file is edited.
  • Why bundle for production: Despite the advancements, bundling is still necessary for optimal performance in production. Vite offers a pre-configured build command that includes performance optimizations.
  • Bundler choice: Vite uses Rollup for its flexibility, although esbuild offers speed. The possibility of incorporating esbuild in the future isn’t ruled out.

Vite Core Features

Vite is a build tool and development server that is designed to make web development, particularly for modern JavaScript applications, faster and more efficient. It was created with the goal of improving the developer experience by leveraging native ES modules (ESM) in modern browsers and adopting a new, innovative approach to development and bundling. Here are the core features of Vite:

WebRTC vs. RTSP: Understanding the IoT Video Streaming Protocols
Sat, 03 Feb 2024

At the moment, there is a constantly increasing number of smart video cameras collecting and streaming video throughout the world. Of course, many of those cameras are used for security. 

In fact, the global video surveillance market is expected to reach $83 billion in the next five years. But there are lots of other use cases besides security, including remote work, online education, and digital entertainment.
