JavaScript-framework with open source Fusion.js is built on the use of plug-ins. The tool is focused on creating small fast applications. The code can be executed both in the browser and on the server, which will allow you to monitor the work and increase productivity.

Features of Fusion.js

  • Support for ECMAScript 2017 and JSX.
  • Separation of packages.
  • Hot reboot in development mode.
  • Server-side development using the Koa.js.
  • Server-side processing and using async.
  • Packet analysis tools.
  • Universal processing for server and browser.
  • Use the fusion-core package to create a common entry point.

Fusion.js uses React and Redux libraries, command line, Koa server and webpack / babel transpiler. Plug-ins allow you to create single-page applications, and also simplify control over the execution of code. For testing in Jest, Enzyme and Puppeteer, the framework received the necessary environment and integration utilities. You can download the software from the GitHub repository.

Uber is not the first time to release open source software. In June 2018, the company introduced a set of tools for large-scale geodatabase visualization kepler.gl.

JetBrains told about the release of the Ring UI 1.0 library. Updates have affected the support of Babel 7, the finalization of the visual language, customizable CSS properties, and the library home page has moved.

In addition, in the new version, the developers did:

  • most components moved to CSS;
  • "pop-up messages", "tabs" and "buttons-switches" components;
  • the ability to configure the list of browsers in which the application will work, thanks to the support of Babel 7.

Colors from the Ring UI can be used for the harmonious design of their application. To do this, you need to configure PostCSS as follows:

plugins: [
  ...
  require('postcss-custom-properties')({
    preserve: true,
    variables: require('@jetbrains/ring-ui/extract-css-vars')
  })
]

Changes in the visual language look like this:
